A SCHOLARLY SUNDAY SERMON BY
THE REV DR. E. TRUMBULL LEE.
Subject: God's Plan of a Christian.
Brooklyn, N. Y.-Sunday morning
the union services of the Central
Presbyterian, Nostrand Avenue M. E.
and Puritan Congregational churches
were transferred to the first- named
church. The preacher was the Rev.
E. Trumbull Lee, D.D.. pastor of the
Chambers-Wylie Nemorial Presbyte
rian Church, Philadelphia. who is
prominent in all the work of the de
nomination. His subject was "God's
Plan of a Christian," and the text
was taken from Ephesians iii:19,
"Filled unto all the fullness of God."
Dr. Lee said in substance: As the
apex of a pyramid is that point to
ward which the upright lines of the
haft converge, so our teyt is the cul
mination of the teaching in verses
In these verses the sacred writer
gives in outline an inspired sketch
of a Christian as God would have
The writer would have his readers
understand him, and also be enabled
to fill out the plan in their lives, so
he makes the matter the subject of
prayer. See verse 14. He prays
(16-19) that the whole family of
Christian believers may be character
ized by power, faith. knowledge and
love in an unusual degree, as the text
says: "Unto all the fullness of God."
That is, an overflowing measure. By
this is meant that-if in order to meet
the requirements of God in the Chris
tian life it is necessary to have
power, then we must overflow with
power, or faith, overflow with faith,
or knowledge, overflow with knowl
edge, or love. overflow with love,
"the love of Christ," the redemptive
love. In a word. God's plan of a
Christian is that a Christian is a be
liever in Christ overflowing with
these constituent qualities of the
This raises the question of re
sources. When I was living in Colo
rado the Arkansas River, . runnir.g
east from the Rocky Mountains, c.'
ried a large volume of water, as it
now does. The river was drawn on
to supply canals branching from the
river and laterals from these canals,
which for extent and capacity would
soon have exhausted the river but for
vast stores of snow and ice pilei up
in the basins or great pockets of the
mountains, which the daily toil of
the suinmer sun distilled into count
less streams, which flowed down and
supplied the river. The ability of the
river to supply the large draughts of
water 1equired by the canals was in
resources which the river drew upon
in the mountains. God is character
ized by infinite resources. In Him
is an infinite reserve of power, knowl
edge, love. He, therefore, plans that
Christians shall overflow with those
qualities herein enumerated, namely,
power, faith, knowledge, love. See
the plan unfold under the master
hand of the inspired apostle. Study
with me the passage, first, the over
flow of power: "Strengthened with
might through the Spirit, in the inner
man * * * unto all the fullness
This means that the entire moral
nature comes into touch with God at
conversion and- becomes strengthened
so that it becomes the expression of
the power of God to save. In this
city is a vast electric car system.
Each car has a known carrying ca
pacity and moves. empty or filled full
of passengers, not only on the level
at the City Hall, but up a st-eep grade
as when passing up Fulton street
past Fort Greene place. But such a
car is a unit in a system, let us say,
of 3000 cars. Now the company does
business on the basis always of more
than enough power for all the cars
to their united carrying capacity.
These cars are "strengthened with
might" by coming into contact with
that overflow of energy. And each
car in the system is the expression of
the totality of the company's electric
power. So when we become Chris
tians we become such by coming into
contact with God through the Holy
Spirit, and we become the expression
on earth of God's power to save.
This is the reason why, again and
again, vast systems of wrong and of
unbelief have been toppled over, why
no force of evil can ever come to
Te first question any one needs
Heavn an hel arefixed according
othanwto o htquestion. But
the next question is. "What kind of a
Christian am I?" Am I a unit of pa
tient, persistent, unconquerable pow
er? Counting Protestants in this
country, we are forty millions in
;1amber. Twenty millions of these
are members of churches. It is im
;ossible to 'itimate the vastness of
::he v'etories 1 of our religion if each
uinit were the e:pri)''on of overflow
:ng power in Chrisnan activity. Paul,
J-v.'ever. grasped the' dynamic possi
bilities involved, and esclaimed: "I
een do all these things through
Christ, who strengtbened me." This
assurance of super'lative ability of
ecomnplishment can be cultivated by
if we make use of all the agencies,
trumrentalities. ordinances and in
utions of our religion, just as a
a in the physical world can make
~self a hundredfold the master of
tuations by- laying hold on steam,
Izctricity and the like.
Second-The overfiow of faith,
'That Christ may dwell in your
earts by faith * unto all
o fullness of God." Faith removes
6nntains. It has always done so.
The victories of faith are simply
inarvemus. But victorious faith is
not a sentiment. nor an enthusiasm.
nor an imagination. Victorious faith
Is conviction in action. It begins with
a man and externalizes itself in
achievements. Neptune was discov
ered by men 'who believed that thatl
planet existed long before it was dis
covered. Fulton believed that he
could preol a boat by steam, and
ceased n~o till hiz steamboat was
striking the waters of the Hudson
with its nade wshels, and so evoked
a new~ n: in the0 song of the world's
indur. 'Mahievements of faith

Si in ? l' K:o -2 Christian liin.
"F'aith '. . o: :s is dead, bei
alone." Faith is a conviction of
truth, and there is the harnessing of
all our faculties of mind, body and
:oul to the vast enterprises by which
murely the kingdoms of this world are
becomimt the kingdom of our Lord
.Tesus Christ. Jesus Christ is des
tined to rule the world, to create

a better being. made so by that very
response. Such sn one ge-s knowl
edge of God. and the reotions be
tween God vnd man. man and God,
and man and man. that no school of
philosophy on earth can supply.
Think not. in knowledge of divine
truth. to live up only to the average
of your contemporaries. but push
that average up. Knowledge deter
mines the world in which we live.
Here are two men, an ignorant man
and an educated man. They live on
the same planet, but also they live in
different worlds. The ignorant man
cannot understand the world in
which the educated man lives. He
was never in it. The educaLed man
understands the world of the ignor
ant man, because out of that world
he came. The difference between
these men is the degree of knowledge
Similarly the natural man. the
man of the world who lives for this
world, cannot understand the world
in which the Christian lives. They
live in different worlds. The distin
guishing fact is in the degrees of
knowledge possessed by them. And
it is knowledge, and then the over
flow of knowledge, that makes the
Christian, and the effective Christian.
Fourth-The overflow of love.
"And to know the love of Christ
which passeth knowledge * * *
unto all the fullness of God." What
is the greatest thing abott God? Not
omnipotence. omniscience nor omni
presence, nor yet any of his attrib
t.tes, but love, for "God is love."
What He is must be greater than
what He does.
Moreover, what redeems the
world? Not philosophy, nor science,
nor mere classical or scientific educa
tion. But love saves the world
"God so loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son that whoso
ever believeth in Him might not per
ish but have everlasting life." Jesus
Christ came into the world-"not to
condemn the world, but that through
Him the world might be saved." The
Holy Spirit makes this offering of
divine love good. But it is written
that whoso "dwelleth in love, dwell
eth in God, and God in him." There
you have it. Into the plan of a
Christian love enters. It is defined
here as the "love of Christ," that is
a redemptive passion to "go into all
the world and preach the gospel to
every creature." To meet the plan
you must be missionary. You must
be filled with a passion for evangel
Ization and philanthropy. Thus will
you conquer sin, destroy the works of
Satan, and hasten the final epiphany
of Jesus Christ.
In conclusion, how meet the re
quirements of the plan of a Chris
tian? By prayer (verse 14). The
best life is begun and is continued in
prayer. By prayer we worship.
Through worship God opens to us
the door of life. Men and women of
this world fumble at the latch, but
the believer in Christ enters in and
takes possession. Eternity is age
I less, has no gray hairs, no wrinkles
"chiseled on its regal brow, and who
ever of you will build the temple of
life, character and deed, after God's
plan, hath undying youth.
In the evening Dr. Lee preached
on "A Living Faith," and took for
his text James ii: 1: "The faith of
our Lord ~esus Christ, the Lord of
Glory." A mong other things he
said: This is the faith of which our
Lord Is author both in the structure
pf the gospel, and in the experience
of the believer'. This faith, then, Is
a divine.- thing. It has always been
subject to teats, but these very tests
have only brought out its enduring
qualities and sublime achievements.
I was never more confident than I
am to-day of the need of proclaiming
the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ as
the only solvent for life's perplexi
ties, disappointments, anxieties, wor
iies, doubts, - problems, unrest, law
lessness and the world's sin, both old
and gray-headed, and all so strong
yet, having age-long redundancy. .I
am convinced that human wisdom is
'powerless .to change the experiences
here listed, that no evolutionary
process can deliver us from them by
enabling us to outgrow them and
throw them off, and that there is no
"new theology" to provide a better
way than the old way-"the faith of
our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of
We need to pray the disciples'
prayer-"Lord increase our faith."
That faith conquers 3verything but

request of the Phmirisces who were
determined to catch and overthrow
the Saviour. -Having heard-per

ly to the discussion of Jesus with the
Herodians about the tribute money
and with the Sadducees about the
resurrection and had been pleased at
the answers Jesus gave. "if he first
commandment." This was a dis
pIted question among their doctors
of the law. Some ascribed first
place to the law of sacrifices, others
to the law of circumcision, others to
the law of the Sabbath, while some
gave this distinction to the law of
meats. But Jesus, with much better
reason. decided in favor of a con
iandment inclusive of the whole of
piety, and leadi.ig to every holy tem
per, word and work.
2!. *Tesuis answered." He quoted
from Dent. 6:4-9. *One Lord."
Faith in the absolute unity of the
Godhead is the point where the Chris
tian religion antagonizes all heathen
..0. "Thou." 'Christ makes this a
personal matter: He does not speak
in a general way. but He brings the
truth home to His questioner.
"Shalt." There is no chance for ca
vil here; no ambigious expressions.
"Love the Lord." it is impossible to
obey this commandment only as the
love of Cod has first been shed
Iabroad in our hearis by the Holy
Gh!ost Rom. *5). "Heart-sol
mind-strength." We may under
stand this fourfold enumeration as a
command to devote all the faculties
to the love of God.
21. "The second." The first ta
ble of the law defines our duty to
God; the second, our duty to ou*r
neighbor. "Is like." Of a like -na
ture, embracing the whole of our
duty to man. "Neighbor as thyself."
See Lev. 11:18. The Jews under
stood neighbor -is mcanin-- fellow

T. A discreet answer (vs. 32-34).
32. "The scribe said." He ex
pressed his disapproval of Christ's
answer. 33. "IS more than-offer
ings." The scribe gathers up in his
reply some of the great utterances
of the prophets which prove the su
periority of love to God and man over
all mere ceremonialobservances. See
1 Sam. 15:22: Psa. 51; Hos. G:G.
34. "Discreetly." With knowl
edge and understanding. "Not far."
He was near, but still on the outside.
It is possible to be near and yet be
lost. "No man," etc. No one under
took to entangle Him in His talk af
III. A warning against hypocrisy
(vs. '18-40). in verses 35-37 Jesus
asks the Jews a question which they
could not answer. 3S. "In His doc
trine." "In His teaching." R. V.
"Beware." fBe on your guard.
"Long clothing." Literally, in stoles,
long r'obes reaching to the feet, such
as ladies of rank were accustomed to
wear, and kings. and nobles, and cer
tain priests, and other high person
ages. "Salutations." They loved
appellattions of honor and respect,
such as Rabbi, Father, Master,
Teacher. "Marketplaces." Any
thoroughfare or public square. Their
ambition was to show themselves off
in these public places. 39. "Chief
seats." The chief seats were at the
upper end of the synagogue near the
chest containing the Eook of the
Law. "Uppermost rooms." 'Chief
places." R. V.
40. "Devour." Like terocious
beasts they devour the substance of
the widows, the most defenseless and
the most deserving of the poor. "For
a pretense." Hypocrites indeed!
They meade religion a mask, and
through their pretended piety they
sought to gain the confidence of
those whom they wer'e planning to
rob. "Greater damnation." Or
"condemnation." Rr V. Implying a
most terrible punishmcnt. For the
double sin of hypocrisy ~and fraudu
lent injustice they should-meet a i~er
rible doom. Pride, hypocrisy and
injustice are kindred sins.
IV. A' lesson on giving (vs. 41
44). If this narrative is taken in
connection with the discourse just
given it places the hypocrisy of these
Pharisees in a most glaring light.
They were reliigious for gain. while
she, one of the very class they were
planning to rob, had a :'eligion that
led her to cast into the treasury all
she had. 41. "Sat." Probably to
rest. "Over against." Opposite.
"The treas~ury." A name given by
the rabbins to thirteen chests, called
trumpets from their shape, which
stood in the court of the women.
42. "Poor." The word rendered
poor is a very strong one, nearly
equivalent to "!cggar'." It implies
utter d.estitution. The condition of
a poor man's widow in that country
was most helples. "Two mites."
The smallest .Jewish coin, about the
value of ons-fith of a cent.
43. "Calle d - disciples." Jesus
directed their attention to this act.
"More." Mom e in proportion to their
ability to g.ive, and thus more in the
estimlation of God. 44. "For," etc.
The worth of a gift is to be deter'
mined. nomt by its; inusie v'alue, but
by whait it ca;;s the giver.
Value of Effort.

verse of God is to be obtained with

who nave been cured of Lhe habit af
ter taking your treatment. I have

contracted the liquor habit may avail

With Irritating Skin Aumor-Hair Began
.o Fall Out-Wonderful Result
From Cuticura Remedies.
"About the latter part of July my whole
body began to itch. I did not take much
notice of it at first, but it began to get
worse all the time, and then I began to
get uneasy and tried all kinds of baths and
other remedies that were recommended
for skin humors, but I became worse ali
the time. My hair began to fall out and
my scalp itched all the time. Especially
at night, just as soon as I would get in
bed and get warm, my whole body would
begin to itch, and my finger nails would
keep it irritated, and it was not long be
fore I could not rest night or day. A
friend asked me to try the Cuticura Reme
dies, and 1 did. and the first application
helped me wonderfully. For about four
weeks I would take a hot bath every night
and then apply the Cuticura Ointment to
my whole body, and - kept getting better,
and by the time I used four boxes of Cu
ticura I was entirely cured and my hair
stopped falling cat. D. E. Blankenship,
