Ministers, or servants, or workers,
for all these words mean the same
- thing, have a message we must not
forget. That message is a gospel. It
3 is nows, good news from heaven. It
is practical salvation. SpIvation is
I the highest word in the dictionary of
3 the human- race. I.t takes in the whole
- manl, hody, mind and soul. Salvation
is the ail-incelusive word, meanilg
everythin g that helps man. Salvation
is the all-Vxcliusive word shutting out
of life everything that hinders man.
- Salvation put into briefest possible
compass is nothing more n-r less than
- simply being a man.
