have chosen you, and ordained you, that |
ye should go ?md bring forth fruit, and
that your fruit should remain: that what*
soever ye shall auk of tho Father in my
name, Ho may give it you.-John 15:16.
These words uro found In the heart
of Christ's contldences with Hie dis
ciples. He had
spoken of coming

With sorrow, fear
ment. Ho must
disclose the secret
of. Joy, peace and
victory. He con
voyed his lesson
most vivid picture
of unity, the vine
and Its branches. He declnres that
true believers are vitally joined to
Him In a living organism; He, the
source of life, constant inflow; they,
the channel of an unceasing outflow.
Christ lives for Ills own to produce
fruit ; they live for Him to manifest
There are four statements In this
text which sum up tho teaching of tho
I-The Principle of Divine Elec
Note how emphatically Christ de
clares His sovereignty! He assumes
entire responsibility for the brunches.
They ure referred to as "chosen ones."
There ls no attempt to deny the hu
man responsibility se* forth In other
Scriptures, but lt does seem. In view
of the emphasis placed upon snlvatlon
by character, or church membership,
or good works, that wo are In grave
peril of losing sight of the wonderful
truth declared here.
A reader of the Sunday School
Times asked recently what was the
most dangerous heresy confronting tho
church today. Tho editor replied not
Christian Science, or Russelllsm, or
even Higher Criticism, deadly as they
are, but the emphasis placed on what
we do for Christ instead of what
Christ has done for u^.
The secret of a life hld with Christ
In God Hes very largely In the concep
tion we have of tho origin and source
of that life, whether lt ls hi. God, im
parted to those who are dead In tres
passes and sins, or whether it Hes In
tho voluntary chole? of the unregen
erate mortal In whom there ls a spark
of the Divine nature.
Oh ! the humbling consciousness of
being chosen lu Him before the foun
dation of the World I Oh, the satisfy
ing sonso of His victory who hath be
gotten us of His own will by the Word
of truth I Surely, this must mean that
there are no natural branches growing
out of tho vine, but all, as broken
from the wild, are grafted Into the
True Vine chosen to manifest the lifo
of Him to whom we are united.
II- Tho Privilege of Divine Ordina
"Ordained" means appointed and In
vested with authority and power.
> Every disciple has a particular place
in tho great plan. Christ knows the
capacity and ability of each one; Ho
endues and equips for Ills own ap
pointment. The Spirit gives to each
severally as He wills; then He ap
points the place where the gift can be
exercised. Many followers of tho
Lord Jesus Christ hnve never
discovered tho. Spirit's gift, nor their
place in the Divine economy. The vic
torious lifo ls using (ind's gift in
God's place for IDs glory.
III- The Purpose of tho Divine Re
The bearing of fruit that shall .re
main ls God's purpose for every dis
ciple. Fruit ls the manifestation of
life. Tho life of the vine* ls to appear
In the branches. May we suggest what
fruit ls for:
First, to delight the heart of the
husbandman. sIt ls fruit, refreshment
and satisfaction. Thrice from the
open heavens did Ood tho Father de
clare thnt He was well pleased in His
Son. Little do we conceive how great
was God's pleasure In the One whose
mont and drink lt was to do Ills will.
Yet He ls an'example of all the born
ones of Cod that they, too, may please
Second, fruit ls for the reproduction
of Ufo. It ls the "cradle of the seed."
holding the lifo gorm. The fruit of
the Christian life. then. ? list be an
other Christian life. Ob, bow wonder
ful for us to contemplate that we have
boen chosen to delight God's hen rt, to
satisfy His hunger for love, and His
longing for devoted children; that we
have boen chosen to reproduce Christ
In other lives.
IV-The Promise of the Divine Per
"Whatsoever yo ask, i will do."
How striking, ftgaill, the Divine ns
'gumptloil Of responsibility. Ile ls the
source of our lifo, our hoing; He ls
the power of our service, our doing, We
have but to ask; He will do. May we

Produce s tapio Food and Feed Crops
for Landlord, Tenants, Stock.
Clemson College, Dec. 1.-"Under
boll weevil conditions lt ls consid
ered extremely important for ach
farmer to raise as nearly all of the
staple food and feed crops as possi
ble to supply all the needs of the
landlord, the tenants and the live
stock. A survey which was maffb of
South Carolina In 1920 reveals tho
fact that this State does not produce
enough syrup to supply the needs of
tho rural population of tho State by
something like 3,000,000 gallons;
that there is a deficit of wheat of
mor? than 8,000,000 bushels; of hay
of over 5)00,000 tons; of hogs of
229,000; and that we do not have
dairy cattle enough to supply the
needs of the rural population by
240,000. It was found also that there
were a number of counties In the
State which did not produce corn in
sufficient quantities to supply the
"All of these things can be grown
