Rev. I. W. Henderson, pastor tocK as
his text John 1:14: "And the word
was made flesh and dwelt among us."
The character and career of Jesus
Christ are the ground of human hope
and the basis of mankind's belief in
His power as the Saviour.
His life, as the evidence of the
sincerity of His speech, is the source
of His success.
The outward action of our Master
is the signal and the surety of His
inward healthfulness of heart. .n
His life, precept and practice were at
coincidence. With Him thought and
deed always were concurrent. His
words conveyed His real intentions
and His innermost ideals. His
language was to lead men unto eter
nal life and was never used to con
ceal a wicked thought.
Preaching a gospel of light unto
the salvation of the world and pro
claiming His personal sufficiency as
the Saviour of mankind from sin.
Jesus Christ talked truth, walked
true, died on Calvary, in devotion to
His divine commission, unto the sav
ing of the souls of sinners.
The life of Jesus is remarkable,
not only as it reveals His oneness
with divinity, but also as it shows to
us what qualities of manhood are
'otent for a real success. Tack
ling the mightiest problem in the
world the Christ exemplifies what
are the means that we should use to
win success in all our lesser strife.
He teaches us a lesson that should
count for much in all our daily do
ings; which should make us forceful
factors which shall lead men up to
God; which should push us ever near
er to His holiness and grace.
The life and the death, i. e., the
career of Jesus Christ, reveal tc us
four divine qualities of character that
every man should possess. in His
downright earnestness; in His fiery
intenseness; in His clear cut, sharp
directness; and in His faithfulness to
the truth and to His trust, the Friend
of humanity leads every man suc
cessward, if he will to go.
The earnestness of Jesus Christ is
a secret of His power. Tendering to
men a surety of eternal life, Hle did
not fool their time or His own away.
Professing a pledge' of upliftment
from the depth of sin, He held His
I Iword in serious regard. The salva
tion of the. world was not mere child's
play, but a whole man's, yea, the
God-man's, labor. The need was for
a man who was dead in earnest.
Such a man was the Christ.
Earnestness made Christ a win
ner. Clearness of vision as to
His mission would have beon of none
effect had the Christ been weak of
will. Love for men and loyalty to
His Father made strong demand for
earnestness. The pluck and the push
cf the Master secured the consumma
tion of His purpose. Irresolution
would have merited defeat, and it
would have gained our Lord oblivion.
Lack of zeal would have lost th.:
Christ to history. But for Hi- ear
nestness and determination the story
of His virtues never would have
reached our ears. Earnestness m.l.e
Christ push the fight into the coun
try of the enemy: courage and resolEu
tion won Him fame and secured Him
in His place of glory in the Father's
With a fier- intenseness Jesus
battled for the souls cf men. His
was no lukewarm, milk. and water,
blow hot and blow cold, half-hearted
enthusiasm. The Christ was always
ardent. His spirit never cooled, but
was ever at a rich, white-heat. His
was enthusiasm compounded. Be
lieving, as He did, :hat the happiness
of the human heart and the saving of
the human soul are the main con
cerns of human life, our Lord had
ever a aeal that was glowing. Trust
ing in the power of divine aid ar.d
knowing the need of the human re.ce
to be saved from sin, Jesus Christ
was as full of earnestness as He was
of grace and truth. Grace is good;
truth is a talisman of might, but
grace and truth need grit and fire ere
they do their greatest work. Iron is
a mineral of worth, but for battle
give me tempered steel. Mer- of
muscle are goodly to the sight, but
for action send me out the man of
courage and the souls who want to
But with all his earnestness and
intenseness the Saviour made un
erring aim. Directness was not the
least of His commendable traits. The
need was for good marksmanship and
a sure sight. Sin was at the centre
of the world's distress and to hit
the middle of the target was the mis
sion of the Christ. Jesus never
minced matters when He dealt with
sin. Without care for the conse
quences and with no circumlocution
our Lord let loose His fiaming wrath
uon the works and the workero of
iniquity. His was no uncertain, wav
ering voice. The fear of the outcome
of His fierce denunciation of spiritual
and moral lawlessness was foreign
.to His heart. Clear, sharp, with an
incisiveness that cut to the very core
of the matter, He stated the funda
mental pr'opositions of 'the Kingdom
of our God and then made His ene
mies admit the power of His points.
His was no halting, thin-toned state
mnent of eternal virtues. Feeling
within the deepest recess of His heart
that sin was the cause of man's suf
fering and knowing that r.re-birth
was necessary to a full salvation, the
Master sent forth those firm, direct
and forceful messages that have been
the object of the curses of a few mnd
the hope and inspiration of a mighty
and unr.umbered host who do honor
to His name.
To supplement His earnestness and
flaming directness Jesus added sur
passing faithfulness. Faitulness
is but a simile for steadfastness. To
be faithful is to have a cordial cer
tainty that the right must win .nd
also to be ready to stand firm and
valiant for the truth until righteous
ness shall prevail. The Christ was
pre-eminently faithful. His was the
incorruptible devotion to the de
mands of duty which .should be the
ideal of us all. To Him we must turn

vice. From Him must we learn would

feet of the Master do we enter into

less souls of the universe of God, the
Soriour is the interpreter of the
salient qualities that are necessary
for a life's successes. He it is who
illustrates and objectifles for us what
our lives should be.
The need for these cardinal virtues
was never more evidentor well voiced
than in this day. In the world of
business they are no less needed tuan
in those religious spheres where
moral and spiritual verities are up
permost. The necessity for the exer
cise of these qualities that make for
manly might is everywhere apparent.
To' the man who would attain busi
ness predominance and commercial
power they are invaluable and indis
pensable. Deduct the moral crim
inality which has made possible the
success of many of the industrial ar -
financial leaders rif our day and the
fact that +h- influence is largely
based to indomitable pluck and
energy and dutifulness still outstands
all else. Backbone and push have
beer the reason for the rapidity in
advancement of a throng. A clean
bull's eye gains applause for the man
with the hand and the true sight.
Directness brings to a man the con
fidence of the crowd. Half-heated,
poorly-fired, swaying. swerving. ir

any considerable length of time nev
er reach the top. never attain, never
are lifted to a place of power. The
world has small use for moral weak
lings or men without spunk an#
grit, at the front.
These characteristics which we
have denominated as among the dis
tinguishing features in the Christ's
career are most essential. however, to
the man who would reach the highest
usefulness and be most a blessing in
the world. Needful as these quali
ties may be to those who would be
famed for physical and material
achievement they are ctill more re
quisite for those who desire spiritual
graces. Especially are they compul
sory and mandatory for those who
have not acknowledged Christ and
would wish to call Him Lord. The
soul's restoration depends entirely
upon the willingness of the sinner to
seek salvation earnestly and In faith.
Spiritual baptism is the gift of the
Father to those only who come
straight to the point. Excuses and
attempts at palliation of our personal
guilt merely delay the crisis. Ex
tenuation and mitigation are of none
avail. Decisive and conclusive yield
ing of the heart to the Master is the
one concession that will bring a snir
itual surcease from the woe of a
wicked life. Earnest endeavor to be
faithful to the trust of the Christian
Sonship gives growth and greatness
in the spiritual life.
These gospels from the life of our
Lord have special bearing upon the
activities of the church. The church
of Christ is no.t so earnest, not so in
tense, not so faithful, as she should
be in the soreading of the seed of
salvation. The church has lessened
her directness too much In her at
tacks upon the strongholds of sin.
We have been content with medioc
rity while the devil has gained as
cendance. The church, to be the
agent for godliness t1-at she is called
upon ,to be, must get down to busi
ness. Half-heartedness puts the flag
of the Christ at half-mast. We must
nail our colors at the top and keep
Directness demands clean-cut. un
waveiing work done with faithful
ness, fidelity and with hoping hearts.
The church, each of us and - all of
us together, must cease to be satis
fid with poor work or none. The
salvation of our own souls and the
nrocuring of temporal and eternal
blessings for ourselves is not enough.
Are we to attain success, as an or
ganization, in the spiritual work that
counts, we must be all on fire wi2h
the desire to save men's souls, and to
bring happiness to their hearts and
lives while here.
Lack of zeal will condemn us as
unworthy. Feeble fire proves remiss
ness. A poor aim lays us open to
the enemy's assaults. Unfaithful ness
is unworthy of us and will meet the
condemnation of our God.

Everyone who Is so happy as to
get to heaven will have in God's
presence "fullness of joy" and at His

The Bible makes it very plain that
there will be differences among the
redeemed. Some will be saved "so

and "least" in the.kingdom of heav

There was also an earthquake at the

was necessary to give form to the

to the face. but to the general aspect. e
"Lightning." In vivid and intense b
brightness. "White." This was heav
enly apparel. 4. "The keepers."

appearance was sudden and unex- V
pected. "As dead men." It is very n
probable that the splendor of a glori
fied body Is always sufficient to over- c]
whelm the senses and prostrate the
strength of a living mortal. See Dan.
8:27; Rev. 1:27. 5. "Said unto the c
women." The angel who sat upon d
che stone had entered the tomb as the
women drew near. b
6. "Not here." Tombs and Ro- e,
man guards and seals could not hold
the Prince of Life. "Is risen." The
manner of the reuniting of Christ's n
soul and body in His resurrection is t]
a mystery, one of the secret things I
that does not belong to us. "As He
said." See Matt. 16:21; 17:23; Luke (
9:22, 44, 45; 1S:31-33. "See the t]
place." Pointing doubtless to the
particular cell in the tomb. 7. "Go
quickly." The resurrection did two d
things: 1. It revived the dead hopes p
of the disciples. It was a time of
gladness and brought (1) joy, 0(2)
victory, (3) faith. Only the fact of
the resurrection can account for the
marvellous change that came to them,
by which they were filled with cour- 1C
age to suffer and die. 2. The resur- i
rec'ion brought hope to humanity: i
(1) It brought the hope of immortal cj
life. (2) It gives assurance of our
own resurrection. (3) Christ is alive
and is thus able to make His prom- C
ses good to us, (4) The risen Lord za
is the remedy for every trouble. (5) n

at what they had seen, joy at what ec
they had heard. 9. "Jesus met l

ance. The first appearance was to
Mary Magdalene (Mark 16:9). It 0l
seems that when she told Peter and s
John of the empty tomb they at once ce
ran to the sepulcher to see for them- s.
selves (John 20:2-10), and she also (c
returned at once to the tomb. Dur
ing her absence the other women had
received their commission from the
angel and had hurriedly left. Peter
and John soon left also, and Mar.y
remained alone at the tomb weep- ag
ing. It was then that Jesus appeared tI
unto her (John 20:11-i8). Later in
the morning Jesus met the other b
women who had gone to tell the dis
ciples, wh:, were probably scattered ~
and may have been some distance
away. "All hail." Literally, rejoice;

pose the quaternion or guard of four 'e
soldiers. 12. "Taken counsel." ty
They probably had a hurried, infor
mal meeting to consider the best
course to pursue. "Large mon.ey."
It took a large bribe to ind'uce th~em E
to thus criminate themselves. 13.
"While we slept." The absurdity of
this position is apparent: 1. The
disciples could not have stolen Jesus
away had they attempted It. 2. The ta
disciples were as much amazed at the
news of the resurrection as were the b
priests. 2. The Roman soldiers set n
to watch Jesus' tomb wd9uld not all
be asleep at the sane time. 4. Thet'
council could not have voted large
sums of money merely to have re
ported a truth. 5. Sleeping soldiers t
could not know what -took place. t<

report hi,s evil deeds t& the Roman b
