24 Comment by Ro. S. II. Doyie.
Topic Gideon's band Judj vil, 1 22
The story of Gideon's band is inter
esting and inspiring. Gideon was the
fifth of the judges of Israel and in many
respects the greatest of tberu all. He
was called of God to deliver his people
from the oppression of the Medianites.
He blew his trumpet, and 33,000 rallied
to bis standard. By allowing the timid
to withdraw and as a result of a second
test at the "spring of trembling" his
Brmy was rednced to a band of 800
men. These, by a strategy peculiar to
eastern warfare, under the battlecry of
"The sword of the Lord and of Gid
eon I" won a signal victory over Ierael'i
enemies, wbiih resulted in a 40 years
peace. This historic incident has been
the inspiration of thousands of God's
people in their struggles against satan,
the powers of the air and unregenerate
In the incident we have the secret of
success in Christian work and warfare.
1. Success in Christian work depends
more upon God than upon numbers.
Numbers are not to be despised, hut
tbey are often magnified above their
desert There is too much of a tend
ency today in Christian work to depend
entirely upon external agencies. Ex
ternal agencies of great appearance
easily lead us to neglect God and to
trust in that which is human. We must
guard against this tendency. In all
Christian work the tource of power is
God. If God be for us, greater is He
that is for us than all they that be
xgHinst us, and if He be for us, no mat
ter who or what is against us, we shall
prevail. To sncced we must keep close
to God. It is- not by might nor by pow
er, but by God's spirit, trne success is
won. Panl may plant and Apollos wa
ter, but God only can give the increase.
2. Snccest- in Christian work de
pends more upon the character of the
workers thau upon the number of them
Quality is more to be desired than
quantity. Panl, with :i little band of
devout, consecrated followers, stirred
the whole heathen world and largely
won it for (Jurist, olore attention
should be paid to the quality of Chris
tian workers. Too many are hindrances
rather than helps. They impede prog
ress rather than accelerate it. They are
in the way rather than on the way.
There needs to be more testing today
than there is. The half hearted and
doubting should tarry behind until they
are full of the Holy Ghost Those who
are bowing the knee to Baal should step
aside till entirely consecrated to God.
This topic should suggest a personal
testing of ourselves. What kind of sol
diers and workers are we? Are we tim
id and half hearted? Are we worldly,
selfish Christians, thinking more of
something else than God, or are we
whole hearted, consecrated followers of

Tlie AVondera of God's Power.
"We think of God's power chiefly
when we are in the. presence of some
natural phenomenon, like Niagara or
the Grand canyon of the Yellowstone,
but no one can reflect long upon the
most commonplace landscape or other
natural fact without being impressed
by it. nor is there a greater pleasure to
most devout minds than to meditate
upon such a subject Mark off a square
foot of ground some time and then ex
amine it minutely and patiently, study
ing what there is in it in the way of
plants or minerals, how it came to be
what it is, how it is changing from day
to day, and yon will gam new concep
tion of the divine power and wisdom.
To study God's power on a large scale,
as in connection with astronomy, for
example, -impresses one strongly with
the immensity of the divine power, but
to study it in little things impresses one
equally with its wonderful care of de
tail, its almost incredible attention to
the perfection of. details and with the
love of order and beanty which surely
must be qualities in the divine natnre
A spiritually prepared preacher with
out a like minded congregation is like
yoking the ox and the ass together. In
stead of great things for the glory of
God and anabundanceof blessings from
the word ot life the assembly goes its
way and straightway forgets what man
ner of men and women they are. The
preacher is thrown back upon himself
and requires a double portion of the
spirit to save him from despair. The
unbelieving go on in their sins, and the
gospel goes forth into a community
where sin abounds shorn of its power
as an immediate remedy for the regen
eration of human society. Reformed
God 'Warn PrepnrlnR.
How often, after those who are dear
to us have been suddenly called into the
better life, we recognize that a strange
tenderness and "responsiveness to spirit
ual motives characterized them in'tbe
days or weeks immediately preceding
the summons! They did not in the-least
realize that they were so near the end,
but God was preparing them for it.
