word.-Act H 8:4.

especially for Europe and America.
These are to be largely promoted by
preaching and by the printed page.
There ls also a propaganda of law
lessness preached on the street cor
ners of our cities, and pushed by the
distribution of printed matter, with tho
caption "Head and pnsa lt on." The
advocates of false religious doctrines
and false social theories are going ev
erywhere proclaiming their teachings.
Our Lord planned that the Word of
! Life should be proclaimed everywhere
I by earnest propagandists. This ls tm
j piled In His pnrtlug words: "Go ye
i Into all the world and preach the gos
pel to every eren tu re." The power
to do this was promised and the prom
ise was fulfilled on the Day of Pente
cost. The power of the Holy Spirit
has beeu and Is available for all who
determine to be witnesses unto Ulm.
The early Christians accepted this
i work and became propagandists of the
most urgent type. Tlhey "went every
where preaching the Word."
The message of Christ has not
changed, nor has the meaning of His,
command. Christians are called to be
propagandists. He is still saying, "Go."
Tho Christians of the New Testament
time went everywhere preacblRg the
There uro many ways lu which we
can follow their example:
1. By llviug lives thut Illustrate the
redeeming power of God's grace. Next
to the direct power of God ia the pow
er of a holy life. Tt preaches and
>!. By an unfaltering testimony, un
ashamed and without apology. To
maintain thlfy one must baye tho
si ' convictions that issue from i
...?.ul Christian oXi>erJeiice und fr? n
fellowship with God in His Word.
The man on the fence leads us no
where, but the man of strong convic
tions ls always recognized as the com
mander of the day. The men and wom
en who are doing the most for the
salvation of the world are those who
are unashamed of the gospel and un
afraid to say where they stand.
8. Personal soul winning. , In this
matter the one who takes the offensive
wins the day. Henry Clay Trumbull
said that when he had the opportunity
of shaping the conversation he always
directed lt toward ?hrlst and his sal
vation. By this method of personal
soul winning he gained more lives
for Christ than In all his public preach
ing and teaching.
4. Christian efforts and enterprise.
This calls for the expenditure of time
and effort and money, but the true
Christian propagandist does not hesi
tate to spend both himself and all
that he has in the work of making
The work of the Christian, propa
gandist calls for courage and devo
tion of the highest order. It involves
much more than church membership
and regular attendance at church
services. It demands an abandonment
of ont's self to the orders of the Com
mander with perfect trust in him con
cerning the consequences.
"Beware" said an old Christinn war
rior, "lest you lose your enthusiasm."
This quality Is absolutely essential In
the work of the Christian propagan
dist. When our government called for
men to serve In the hour of our coun
try's need, the men responded. When
the Red Cross asked for millions to
take caro of the sick and wounded,
they were given more even than they
asked for. When the cry for help came
from the desolated countries across tho
sea, the response was Ubernl and gen
erous. What shall bo our response
to the call of Christ? The early Chris
tians- went everywhere preaching the
Word. You too can do tho same either
In your own person or by the hearty
support of the task through money
A mere lad In the army overseas
was rather hard to mnnnge because

On one of the closing days of tho war

the enemy's fire but both times came
back and saluted with these words:
"Captain, your message was delivered."
We are entrusted with the great mes
