In The Churches
1!- Rev. J. C'IkiiIis Yilliors
(Church of the linod Shepherd)
St. Paul in hiR epistle to the Philip
pin ns makes use of these words:
"Work out your own salvation with
fear and trembling. For it is God
that worketh in you both to will uml
to work His good pleasure." From
the context of these words, it would
seem as it' the Rreut apostle was
somewhat fearful that the Philippian
Christians might miss the meaning
and aim of their church membership,
and the diTine and human fellowship
and co opt ration which it involved.
In the words just quoted he says that
the aim oi our communicant relations
with the Church is "Salvation" and
that the means by which salvation is
to he attained is both of Cod and of
ourselves. In view of his statement
it might be well for 'tis to ask our
selves what we mean by salvation.
What is "Salvation?" In the course
oT my ministry I have often heard the
most contused and superficial notions
expressed in connection with this im
portant word. 1 have even heard
preachers of the Cospcl say to their
congregations that all a man had to
do in order to be saved was "to be
lieve," and the information was not
r.hvi'.vs forthcoming in what or in
who7ti he was to believe. Pelief, or
faith, is an absolute essential of sal
vation, lint such belief must bo some
thing: more than intellectual rsseifj
to what we know as Christian doc
trine, be that belief never so broad
and comprehensive-. Such belief is
not synonymous with salvation. Again
I have heard salvation spoken of as
if it were merely and only escape In
; ..!' external way from the punish
ment of Fin. It is not so t audit by
Jesus Christ, nor is it so taught by
his apostles. That a man's circum
stances are affected by it may he ad
mitted. Hut no man knows anything
o': salvation, in the Christian way,
until he knows something of it as an
internal, moral quality. Strictly
speaking, salvation is Jin inner, vital
principle, and progressive movement,
at the core rnd centre of man's moral
being, related to the "hi re and now",
and to all Hie future of his life, in
time, and in eternity. Thackeray, in

does r.i't comprehend all there is
in saltation, but he most certainly
touches on one phase of it.
Everywhere in the N"vv Testament,
salvation Is spoken of not as an iso
lated act which occurs once for all
in a man's experience, at what we call
his "conversion," and which is per
fected and completed at that time,
but as a progressive, spiritual move
ment in his moral being, begun at,
what many people call, Ms conver
sion, but at what I prefer to call his
"regeneration," and from then on,
ever advancing and ever increasing
in life, and in all the true purposes
The ground-work or foundation of
salvation is the forgiveness of sin,
through the redemptive ministry' f
Jesus Christ. But the forgiveness of
sin is only the ground-work or found
ation of salvation. Ppon it is to he
built a superstructure of moral char
acter, strong and beautiful, a char
acter which will commend itself to
JtasttSnChrist, and win from him, his
ivaiioa according to the New
feslifiienf, as I understand it. begjng
