The givirg cf life is the prcrcgatUe of God alone, j
At the creation it was he c&Ij, who, after ran had j
beea formed from the dust cf the earth, could
! breathe into him the breath cf life. In Ezekiel's I
: ision at the V&Ilej cf Drj Bones, after those bones i
' had Lecn dothe-J with flesh, that prophet was told j
. to crj. Come frcra the four winds, O breath, and !
breathe npen these benes, and they shall live. j
1 This nee-J cf Divine Influence lor life is especially '
apparent in the promotion of man's tpititaal good.
, Lren if mere rutu hive coutrivei plausible theories
for the perfection of our race, they have been
unable to truly enforce those theories, to as to !
elevate men, least cf ail to as to elevate t'ae most j
. debased of men.
Bat our Lord, speakicg as uerer man spuke, j
; uttered truths, which with the blessing of hU spirit, j
ore calculated, like the mysterious power of life
itself, to toth move ud direct in the way of the I
highest welfare of even the lowest of society. These '
: truths are these, which tench of his relation to men. i
No mere men have been able to give any important :
j influence by their own relation to those they have .
I taught; the systems of the best philosophers would
i be of the same value if those philosophers were '
themselves forgotten. Cut Christ is essential both
i to his teachings, and to tlioir enforcement. !
' We shall be aided in receiving the lesion we are
to draw from the words of my text, by thus first '
observing how, like a world without the power of j
life, human uatare alone is, without the incentives j
given by Christ's teachings.
j The chief method by which men are now able to i
j influence each other, is that of appealing: to the !
j feeling of self interest in its various forms of fears,
desires, and hopes. The results cf appeal to this
! feeling have been, eit.'ier systems of intimidation.
such aa the ancient despotisms, in which one man '
! was sometimes able to bring almost a continent !
to serve himself, the least thus serving the great,
not tb.e great tue
aujusiment ci interests, sucu as are lormea among:
modern nations by the "the balance xf nower."
and such as appear in Republicanism, by the
appointment of checks on the powers of the rulers
and on those of the ruled; in all which there can
be little more devotion of the great to the least, than
selfishness naturally prompts; or there have been
devised by philosffphers systems of " Sociology,"
drawn from a wide induction of the facts of nature
and of human history, in which the only influence
proposed is that cf the remorseless and unpitying
struggle of all things for the 44 survival of the
fittest, not for the survival of the least; which
struggle, we might naturally apprehend, would
bring society only to a character and wretchedness,
like that of Hell; but which, strange to say, has

The words we are considering, teach cf individual
effort with individuals, ef services to evea one, to
even the least one. We are apt to think cf duing ;

tuJe, by influence over the great, or by leading a !
host; but when car Lori moved among men.be '

thus labor, less might be heard of the complaints, !
so cummin, over the degeneracy cf the Hawaiian j
people, anl possibly a remnant cf them might be '
preserved, us a monument cf God's blessing cn the j
cause or missions. o greater good could be tough t
in connection with the quickening industry, now
anticipated ia these islands, than the prevalence cf
such a disposition to thus labor everywhere with
everyone, by which that hoped for prosperity night
be consecrated and made a blessing. Thus as we
were to make sacrifices for others w would rcoeive
blessings to ourselves. The hand, that we thus
would stretch forth in the missionary devotion,
would be filled with blessings to us.
Among the legends of Christ's sacramental cup,
called the Holy Grail, which it was once thought
would bring peculiar blessings to its discoverer, was
one cf a knight, who set forth in shining armor cn
a noble charger, confident of success in finding it;
and who is represented as having been met at his
gate by a squalid beggar, asking alms. Indignant
at such an intrusion on his grand undertaking, he
is said to have thrown him a coin, as be would have
cast it at a dog. Long after, he is pictured, as

supplanted by a better population.
, Jivea if, borrowing from the Scriptures, we were
; to take the idea of effort for the least members of so
ciety, the self-interest, now overmastering humanity,
ia a force to prevent such effort. In even the
natural impulses of kindness, which with somewhat
of Eden-beauty have survived from the primeval
Eden, there cannot be power to raise men to the
heaven of such endeavor against the gravitation of
selfishness. In the nothingucss of the mere abstract
definitions of duty, made by philosophers, there can
only be the power of nothiug to thus move us.
What the world needs is less laws and theories than
life. But as no man has yet beeu able to enter the
holy of holies of God's peculiar prerogative, to
create even the lowest species of life, so no one has,
or ever can, enter the higher templo of God's
spiritual kingdom, to cause the life of such conduct,
like his, by mere human power. To produce sucb a
life, and its growth, and fruitage, there rnuBt be the
influence of one living that life towards us; such
an influence, as we are taught by the words of ray
text to derive from considerations of Christ's infitite
excellence, and so to receive from his life.
Several times previously Christ had uttered
somewhat similar words, as once, taking a little
child in his arms, he had siid, Whoso shall receive
one such little child in my name recciveth me. On
the occasion of speaking the words of my text, he
gave a fearfully impressive picture of the final
judgment of the world, foretelling how, as he will
come iu the clouds of heaven in great glory with
the holy angels, to judge all nations, he will regard
whatever we have done, or not done, in life to even
the least of our t'ellowmcn, as having been done, or
not done, to himself.
These words oi his were based on the fact, that ir
love he had so espoused the cause of his people
to make his ova worth the reason for wh-'
treatment they should receive. So it c
that the reason for our obligation to bt
fellowmen, and the measure of that obliga
to be found in Lis infinite worth. Thp
he thus laid dovn, and which I proper
is, that for 'Mermining whether to serve
men. we ar. tot to loot to their merit. L
t . . 1 n -
iinai ia wormy. those
we may injure our hotw
Whatever mar be said of the expediency
particulars measures for that cause, we must inft
from the truth we have been considering, that it 5
indispensable for our tfood at home, that we t
animated by that love of the needy for Christ'a sab.
which is the spirit prompting to labor in that eaua,
and if in this spirit we come to judge cf its claiat,
wc shall readily see our duty.
As if we look from the wrong position the move
ments of our solar system seem irregular and retro
grading, when if wc could view them from the sun,
they would appear orderly and beautiful; so thoe
duties, which we aro apt to regard with aversion,
will, if viewed iu their relation to Christ, sometimes
seem even attractive and blissful. With such
view there could be no one so degraded or unwortl-y.
no inhabitant of the most obscure coral atoll of rr I
ocean so debased, that we could disregard th'm.
With such a view the great Missionary Apostle tfice
exclaimed, "I am debtor both to the Greeks at to
the Barbarians," while so far from the Greeks nd
uarDarians naviug done anything to bring"m
uuder obligation to them, they had only perst'ed
him and sought his life. But because of the iaite
worth cf Christ, he owed them every favor liquid
do them; and so he explained, saying. The ft eof
Christ constraineth us. I -
With a devotion like that of his, our chief I ''"ng
in our labors of mercy would be, not eo muj'hat
we benefit our needy fellowmen, nor so muoftbat
we gain advantages to ourselves, as that we bat
our LorJ rejoices in, as homage to LimseB
cur cwa human experience we know a littlff the
feeling, with which he thus receives our servi to
even the least of his children, as favors to pwelf.

a may oe, we gr S:.
.. . are to serve even tbe least, there can te no
human being, whom we may neglect.
Now if against the mere human influences, we
have beun considering, there could prevail that cf
thia law of Christ's, what a change would be pro
duced in the world ! In nature against the tendency
of oxygen, to destroy every thins by spontaneous
combustion, there comes the influence of sunlight,
acting through the agency of vegetation, separating
the material necessary for the Tegetable fabric, and
so making the life and growth and bloom of vegeta
tion possible; so against those tendencies of our
poor nature to prevent the loving ministries, we
owe in life, there is needed this influence of Christ's
infinite excellenoe, making a me oi ioyc pueeiuic.
In the present state of things, it is plain,
that uch a life is impossible; because that
method, of guaging man's services to man
by human merit, places a weight on man s
heart, to repress the risings of pity and sympathy
and love. As at its best mere human merit is far
from perfect, as it is also not always apparent, and
as it is sometimes nearly wanting, no wonder that
our common affections, based on it alone, are so
vfhimsical, narrow, and unreliable, as they are, that
their cord is so easily broken, and their light so
readily darkened; and no wonder that, instead of
exercising them at all, many are prone to eeek only
to attain to such a display of worth for wealth,
ability, or station, as to rather bring others to only
minister to themselves, as though it were greater
to return to the condition of infancy, of being waited
on, like tbe babe, rather than manfully to minister
t0Soh different indeed is the life, taught by the
words we ate considering, from that chiefly pre
vailing in society, that it may seem to some even
sentimental and impracticable to urge it; and thus
it would doubtless be a surprise to many for it to be
actually now required of them. Christ taught, that
at the final judgment many would be surprised to
see, how thus they were to be judged for having
lihted Liui in their treatment of his children; so
doubtless there would be amazement and terror to
multitudes, if he were to now reveal the full truth
of tbe relation of our conduct to himself, if he were
i to now descend and wait amongst us, presenting
; himself to us, according to the meaning of the
words of my text, in t'ue forms of those we neglect,
in tbe sorrowful faces of tbe needy ones wc may
think unworthy our regard, and in the humble
grief of those we have been accustomed to slight.
: "ow for us, in determining our treatment of
' others, to rather turn from our poor considerations
' of human merit to thoughts of his infinite worth,
: would be for us to be actuated by an influence,
partaking somewhat of his greatness and perfecticn
and eternity; a power moving us, like him, to serTe
even the unworthy, like him, to persevere in that
service against ingratitude, and like him to thereby
feel the joy, that is the light of heaven.
Sometimes it dimly gleams on us, that it is thus
greater to be actuated by such a devotion, as oar
text teaches, than to enjoy the highest good earth
affords. Thus even the Hindoos by their proverbs
magnify the virtue of benevolence above other
1 excellencies. When once a Crabmin was making
offerings of ten thousand manges, as he had been
required by the priest of the god of tbe Ganges to
: do and favc but one to a iamishmg beggar, it was
i announced that tbe god felt that he had only
received that one. Thus With our higher Christian
1 culture we estimate true benevolence above mere
formsofpietyoroutward greatness. When England s
ti . . aside to comfort an obscure
,rA-n :. r aivlum. and when ebe was
S, I Jt .
.use lost in
that we have
ta we roayhe'ptt.. .
iLt degraJ'n heathenism,
"..f? .hnse acts to himself.
At every thought of then. u u" ahould rise before
us his form suflenng ior us, ru
and emitten wjth tbe stripes due ui ; and the
question should be, What will we do at for him?
Whether like the woman, who, as forgiven much,
loved much, we will ebow our love in the humblest
homage to him, thus, as it were, in efforts for bis
children, pouring the precious ointmeut on his head,
and bathing his very feet with oar tears of love T
The Scriptures teach that the period of glory yet
to ffawn in the world is to be preceded and caused
by such a new feeling of tender regard for the
Redeemer himself. In connection with the predic
tion of that millenial period it is said, they shall
look on him whom they have pierced, and they
shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for an only
son. It would 6eem that thus at length, not merely
with thought of the wants of the wretched, nor
with hope of its own good, the church is, with a
new feeling of contrition for its former remissness
in effort for its Lord, to be actuated to that entire
performance of its labors for him, which will result
in its ultimate and eompleta triumph in the world.
And doubtless thus also in that triumph its joy will
not be so much in its own glory, as in trie tnougni,
that he who baa been so long the despised and
rejected of men, will see of the travail of his soul,
and be satisfied.
Tn ht trinrrmh of the church we now here may
begin to participate, by making the infinite worth of
our Lord the reason and the measure of our devotion
to our fellowmen. And thus we shall also find
blessing in that coming period of greater glory,
when he shall himself be seen, appearing ia the
clouds of heaven, no longer now the man cf sorrows,
acquainted with grief, but receiving the homage of
the armies of heaven, enthroned as King of Kings,
having on his head many crowns. Happy 'hall we
then be, if ainoDgst the stars of his diadem, it shall
appear, that some of the poor favors we may now
do to even the least of Lis children, will shine,
mercifully accepted, aa honors to himself.
