The
Sin That Includes
All Other Sins
By KEV. H. OSTROM, D. D.

TEXT.-Ho shall convict tho world of
sin because they bollove not on Mo.-John
IC:?. 9.
That ls inclusive-"Ute world." Tbat
ls specific-..sin."' That Is assertive
"convict." A i, d
tbat ls direct
"Me."
The sin ques
tion ls not left to
the whim or fnncy
of those who are
more mystically
than rationally In
clined. There Is
u "because" to lt.
Men ure Baying
"give us a rea
son." Here the
reason is given.
The claim ls that
humanity bas sin.
The reason for the
claim ls because
men believe not on Jesus Christ. This
fact ls not only a truth, or an arous
ing truth, or an undeniable truth; it
le a convicting truth. Bold claims
these may seem to be, but there they
ore. And their right to be accepted
Is guaranteed by the authority of God
Almighty.
The Ten Commandments are not
mentioned here. Neither are the good
deeds men do given ?here. A thou
sand dead apple trees are not worth
as much for fruit raising ns one live
tree. So n thousand commandments
would not count for so much as the
living Jesus; and a thousand good
deeds (dead ot best) could not equal
ti\e living Jesus. Place nil command
ments and all good deeds In one side
of your scales and weigh them against
Jesus, they will kick the beam. He
was born under the law. He fulfilled
the law, He was put to death under
the btw; His deeds are not only many,
they are without one exception good
even to perfection. We must deal
with nim. Refusal to accept whet He
has done, that ls the sin. That sin
holds In Its grasp all others. It is
Ills Cross that stands ut the forks
In the road when? we must make the
eternal choice. Sinning against that
Includes all the rest.
With one, lt is Jesus or work, Have
not I done all these good things, or
am I not willing to do these right
acts? What I did and what I am
about to do, that ls the consideration.
But over against lt all ls Jesus. There
Is what He did and what He offers to
do. What could u dead violin do to
wards making music? Absolutely
nothing. But Is there a skilled violin
ist Into whose hands lt has been
given? He will produce the music.
What cnn a man "dead !n trespasses
and sins" do to make himself right?
Ah, he cannot practice the real right
until he has the righteousness to
practice with ; and that IB In Jesus.
With (mother lt ls Jesus or harm
lessness. "Why, what harm have I
done?" Well, If there hud been no
other barm done than that done by
neglect, then that le startling. Like
fields neglected, like bridges neglect
ed, like debts neglected so ls the soul's
neglect ; lt always carries with it dis
aster. But here ls something to which
you may have been blinded, you have
neglected Him, All other neglects
even If they extended Into ages upon
ages Instead of only for a few years
cannot weigh as much ns this. What
He represents to us ls duty so great
that If we neglect Him we are lost
by lt. _
*Wlth another lt is Jesus or Sow
much cnn I pay? But wo cannot pay
for the rejection of Him. He ls not
to he marketed. How could one pay
for such when the very substance or
money be might bring would be, not
the smallest fraction of lt, originally
produced hy mun? "Who hath made
all these things?" "What hast thou
that thou didst not receive?" If lt
were a matter of barter then we are
utterly defeated. Our price would be
BO dls-valued by the rate of exchange
that lt would equal simply nothing.
But "believe on ME," that Is the
condition. The paying, He lins done
that. "Ye ore bought with a price."
"Redeemed not with silver and gold
but with tho precious blood of
Christ."
Believe on Him, thnt ls to put the
whole weight of nil the post, all the
future and oil of now upon Him. He
doves. He ls the elevator that takes
us tip. It Is dangerous even to put
forth the hand ns If to increase its
power to lift us.
Not believing on Him, sin follows.
Believing on Him, sin ls defeated.
Senrch the whole field from end to
end, and through every port, and lt Is
defiled unless we believe on Him.
Likewise, senrch lt most thoroughly,
and tho defilement ls gone If wo be
lieve on Him. It Is n wonderful word
of life this, thnt "the gift of God ls
eternal life." When the little girl was
asked to explain how sweet the honey
was In the Jar she carried, sho tried
several times to find on answer and
then reached the climax by lifting the
Jar up In her hands and saying, "Hero,
put your linger In, taste and see." Tho
proof was In the taking.
Xnd drunkards and moral men,
scholars and uneducated men, pros
perous and poor men, stund forth to

one among them?

The Varied I
Activities of Faith
By REV. JOHN C. PAGE
Teacher of Blblo Doctrine, Moody
lilblo Institute, Chicugo.
TEXT.-Without faith lt i? Impossible to !
pieuse Him.-Hub. U:t$. i
Thc greatest event tn New Testa
ment history, ufter the ascension of
Christ and the
pentecostal gift;
of the Holy i
Spirit, was the
conversion of Suul
of Tnr?us.
Th I s event
might also be re
garded as most
important in
world history, for
the world, as well
as thc church,
owes much to the
conversion of this
man who ls . known to us as Paul, the
Apostle.
The first preaching tour Paul under
took led bim from Antioch, the chief
gospel center of that day, to the Is
land of Cyprus, and on to the prov
inces of Asia Minor. The Journey
occupied about throe years and the
varied experiences of that time In
volved much suffering and persecu
tion. Converts were gathered out In
the places visited and churches
formed.
Amid these varied experiences Paul
received one deep, lasting Impression
which confirmed his point of view and
gave him settled convictions ia re
gard to tho method by wnlch meu
and women were saved nud blessed.
That Impression is to be seen in Ivs
report to the home church In Antioch
to which he returned nt the end of his
Journey. According to Acts 14:27 ti e
church ot Antioch was gathered to
gether and Paul rehearsed all that
God had done during the missionary
Journey, and how He had opened "the
door of faith" unto the natious.
This door of faith ls the only way
by which any one may enter Into the
spiritual blessings of the gospel and
the Kingdom of God.
To tills great truth #he church of
God needs to be rolled back today.
Salvation lu a work of God into which
we enter by the door of faith. Not
only so, but the walk of the saved is
dependent upon faith. The principle
on which the Christian Ufe is com
menced ls the principle of its continu
8nce. Salvation is au act and a
process in which, from the human !
point of view, faith ls tho key to ul) !
blessing and progress ..* j
Thlu truth ls present In all of tho
Writings of tho Apostle to the Gen- j
tiles. In his effort fo call some con- '
verts back to faith he declares In the j
words of Galatians 2:20, "I live by
the faith of the Son of God." When
this same apostle drew near to the
end of hts earthly career he looked ;
back over the course he had covered
and enid, "I have fought a good fight;
I have kept the faith."
One of the best definitions of faith
ls found in I Timothy 0:12, whero
Paul writes to Timothy and urges him
to "fight the good fight of faith." The
next two words define the activities
of faith. It consists In "laying hold."
But there must be something to lay
hold of, and that something ls the
truth of God. "Faith comoth by hear
ing and hearing by tho word of God."
Faith ls tlie door through which one
enters Into God's treasure house, but
such faith ls dependent upon the
proclamation of God's revealed truth.
It comes not through the discussion of
current events or tho expression of
personal opinions.
This puta a tremendous responsibil
ity upon the preacher and teacher, for
If tho word of God ls supplanted hy
discussion of popular subjects faith
will not be formed or fostered. On
the other hand, the people who hear
|*the truth cannot "lay hold" of lt un
lesB their hands are empty. If the
bands are filled with Belflsh plans,
with pleasure-loving devices, and cov
etous desires, there will bo no ability
to lay hold of God's truth. Tho hu
man will must bo subjected to tho di
vine will. When this ls done no en
trance Into the saving grace and pow
er of God is effected. Through the
door of faith ono passes from dark
ness to light and from the power of
Satan unto God, and In the power of
fnlth ono walks in the way of holi
ness nnd eternal lifo. Belying upon
the Holy Spirit of God, victory ls as
sured, for "this ls the victory that
overcomoth the world, oven your
faith."
Be 8wlft to Love.
Oh l let us not walt to bo Just or
pitiful or demonstrative toward those
we love until they or we are struck
down by Illness, or threatened with
death. Lifo ls short, and we have
never too much time for gladdening
the heurts of those who are traveling
! the dark Journey with us. Oh I bo
] swift to love, mako haste to bo kind.
II. F. Araiel.
God Gives All Good Gifts.
You never cnn have too strong a
will, but the trouble ls we do not give
that strong will up to God, to make
lt a vessel in which God cnn and will
pour Ills Spirit, so ns to flt lt to do
splendid service for Himself. Does
