TEXT-How shall w? oscnno If wo nog
loot so great salvation?-Heb. 3:3. i
Tile recent World war 1ms ftpolled
us for <simill things. Only world-jvlde
est folks these
days. The gigiin-?
tlc scale set by
the war has not
only set t h.o
standard for po
litical, social, tb
nnncial, but for
religious in o y e
m e n t s as well.
N o t h 1 ng seems
worth paying at
tention to these
days unless Its
program o m
bruqes the world. This very demand
brings Christianity abrojist of the
times; Indeed, lt reveals the fact that,
ns always, lt ls ahead of the times, I
and In this particular Instance, not
less than 1000 years. For In the di
minutive land of Palestine, just out
side of the city of Jerusalem, Jesus
Christ, the Son ef Gqd, died on a hill
called Calvary, as the Savior of all
the world. After His resurrection, He
commissioned His disciples (beginning
at Jerusalem nnd reaching out In
every direction t? the uttermost parts
of the world) to preach the Gospel to
every creature. Surely If bigness ls
demanded, Christianity hns llrst claim
for attention. To what corner of this*
eart?r has it not extended? What
.Island of the sea lins lt not touched?
To what people-of the earth has lt not
come with its sweet message of peace
and hope, Its witness of power in
transformed lives, civilizing nations,
shattering systems of superstitions
and emancipating souls?
Of Its many marks of greatness, a
few only can be selected.
It Is great in respect to its person
nel. We are In the habli of judging
the value and Import ance of an enter
prise by the character and reputation
of those who Indorse lt. Usually when
a movement ls launched, lt gain? ac
ceptance and favor in Just the pro
portion that the personnel back of It
inspires confidence and respect. Tho
Gospel bas back of it a personnel be
side which all others sink Into Insig
nificance. For God the Father planned
it; God tho Son executed the plan;
and God tlie Roly Spirit applies lt to
the hearts of men;
It ls great In respect to Its plan.
Here neither tln'ie nor -extent Is flg
'?rod In. Jesus Is the Lamb styln be
foro the foundation of the world. Tills
takes us"beyond the beginning of time.
In the ages to como, God Is to'show
unto ue the exceeding riches of Ills
grace in Ills kindness toward us
through Jesus Christ. This leaps tho
boundary of tlirie again and extends
beyond tho end. The phip, therefore,
takes hold of the eternity past and
the etornlty future, nnd spanning the
whole reach of time, binds them to
gether In ono grand purpose of grace.
Every other project bas a beginning
nnd end In time, but not so the Gos
pel of the grace of God-lt vaults
It ls great In respect to its provl-,
Blon8. Again all boundaries vanish, no
limitations can bo described. God ls
able to make all grace abound, supply
nil needs, bless with till spiritual
blessings, do exceeding abundantly
above all wo cnn ask or think.
It ls groat In respect to Its purpose.'
The greatest piece of property In tho
world ls the human soul. This great
salvation proposes to save that soul
from tho penalty of sin, the power of
sin; and eventually the presence of
stn forever. It embraces a perfect
pinn of reconciliation to, and full re
instatement In the favor and family of
lt is great In respect to Its program.
This ombrnces all nations. It takes In
every clime and country, all comb- j
11.1119 and ci?eses. Other religions nrtP
. rooted to the soil where they bad,
their beginning. To transplant them '?
Is 10 destroy them. Not so Chris
tianity. It ls no exotic plant. It bas
tho elements of universality ; lt thrives
vherover planted. *
it ls great In respect to Its price.
'T,i" late war cost tho entente nations
$'.?10,000,000,000. It Is hard for tho
hi nd to grasp the Immensity of these
iii.urns. Yet, they ure understandable.!
Wv' can add to Hiern, subtract from
tlvm, multiply and divide them, and1
n -t an Intelligible answer. But the
V ?. MA MMC
prlco of redemption .ls Infinite., '"The
blood is the life," and the blood of\
God's Son, the sinless One, purchased
man's redemption, one drop of which
ls of more value than all the blood of
bullo and goats since tho beginning of
.time until now.
It ls) great in respect to jhe plain
ness of its terms. The simplicity of
Gospel terms ls n stumbling bloch to
many, lt seems, unbelievable that so
much cnn be obtained for so little. It
looks cheai>. Can't something be done
to earn lt or given lu return for ttl
No, lt ls free, absolutely free-a free

Granted Permission to Attend Fune
ral of Mother, Returns to Pen.
(The Stato, 5th.)
Arthur "Mossi negro, serving 18
years In the penitentiary from Union
ctfunty, proved to be a man of his
word yesterday whoa he walked in
to tho Governor's olllco after an ab
sence of three or four days. Moss has
been In tho penitentiary three yearn.
Last woek his mother died at Whlt
mlro and ho made an urgent plea to
tho .Govornor to bo allowed to go
homo for tho funeral.
Tho Govornor did,not like tho Idea
at first, but after Col. A. K. Sanders,
superintendent of tho penitentiary,
and other prison official;: had spoken
a good word for Moss, tho Chief Ex
ecutive granted tho negro permission
to leave Gio penitentiary and go to
tho funeral. Moss gave his solomn
word that'ho would report to tho
Governor evory doy .by telegraph as
to where ho was, and this ho did reg
ularly during his absence.
Yesterday ho walked Into tho Gov
ernor's olllco on schedule timo and
tha'nked tho Cbiof Executive for the
trust placed In him. Tho Govornor
told Moss to report to the prison and
ho returned to begin lo years.
Sovoral peculiar Incidents result
ed from tho trip of Moss. The Gov
ernor had ono of bis constables tn

to bo on tho lookout for Moss. Tho

Concerning an Occurrence that Took
Placo Recently In Walhall?.
ICctttor Keoweo Courier:* .
, * Will you allow nie space In your
paper to say a few words ahout my
work and pooplo-here In' the Second
I carno here as pastor tho flr?l?.or
April, 1920... Slnco Lhat time 1 have
tried lo servo these people the very
host 1 cduld. SomotlnTes the work'
has be'on very discouraging indeed,
hut there aro some peoplo.'here who
are made out of tho right kind of
material, if I am any judgo after a
pastorate covering nearly ten years
in North Carolina and South Caro
lina. I think Lhat I cnn truthfully
say therre are some as loyal pooplc
lhere as I have ever found anywhere.
! Rut the .thing that .1 .had' In mind
when I started to write was to,tell
! of a recent happening in our home.
I On the 12th of September, about ?5
o'clock in the evening, there came
Into our ?tome about twenty-five of
our good women, along with the Sun
day school superintendent and the
church clerk, and while we were
wondering Just what was up-well,
? they had a wagon at the back of tho
house unloading all kinds of gro
ceries, fruits, both canned and fresh,
corn meal, flour, etc. Now maybe you
think we did not appreciate this to
'kon of respect on tho part of ?our
folks, but if you do you think wrong.
No words can express our feeling of
gratitude to a people who, while
[thinking of their own problems, re
I member that sometimes t^o pastor
J has ono of his own. There are many
things that could bo said, but let mo
I say that this pounding was made up
I and carried out by tho woman's class
' in the Sunday sohool. ,
I I nm glad to say In closing tl??s
I note that our Sunday school ls grow
ing fast. There ls no disputing the
fact that it nearly diod while we
were out of the church, but now, hav
ing gotten into tho now church, with
G.*W. Thompson, who ls well known
to all our people) as tho superintend
ent of tho cshool. It is doing flue".
Wo plan to begin a revival in tho
near future, with Rev. R. F. Jones,
of Westminster, to do the preaching.
We will have something to say about
that later. W. F. Sinclair,
