O CHRIST OF GOD.
0 Christ of God, Thou living Bread!
On Thee my soul would fain be fed;
Be Thou the Fount of Life to me,
That 1 may ever drink of Thee.
Blest Giver, give, that I may live,
For without Thee, no life for me. "
' 0 Christ of God! Thy grace bestow
On me that I may daily grow
More like Thyself, arid thus may be
At length an image Lord of Thee.
My heart made Thine, Thy will made
Thy niiud in me, and I in Thee.
O Christ of God! Thy peace impart
To this poor, heavy-laden hearf
And let this weary head recline,
Upon that great God heart of Thine.
And thus may peace and joy increase,
Since I am Thine, and thou art mine.
0 Christ of God! I pray Thee give
Thyself to mc, that I may live
Through all eternity with Thee,
And evermore Thy glory Bee;
And thus in heaven aweet rest be given;
That rest to be in serving Thee.
Not in the Wisdom of Men.

tions of the pul pit are to be strictly con
strued and strictly executed; its aims
kept steadily and unswervingly in
view. It loses its tension and lnteg-
rity by -broadening , its mission, as
well as by narrowing it. The priest-
y idea destroys Its simplicity, purity,
and power, debauches its character,
perverts its functions, and clothes it
with an element of superstition. The
literary and scholarly idea takes the
pulpit out of its legitimate sphere,
rids it of its intensity, unity and
force. The normal idea of the pulpit
s that of a herald to proclaim; a wit
neas to, testify. The simpler the
pulpit Is the better will Its functions
be executed. Its times of vigor and
successhave been, when shorn of
pretension, ppmp, sensation, and a
show of learning, it has adjusted
itself to Its original design with
meekness and singleness of aim and
fervor of spirit.
Do Tour Best.
The primitive Christians did not so
much hold the faith of the gospel as
they were held by it. They were
assured of the truth by a divine dem
onstration. Their faith stood, as an
apostle reminded them, "not In the
wisdom of men but in the- power of
God." We live at a time when the
assaults of unbelief are' constant.
Unbelieving ' criticism assails the
authenticity of Scripture. Rational
ism sets aside the authority of
Scripture. Agnosticism doubts if
there be a God. In this state of
things there is a call for an equally
learned and more candid cf iticism,
to vindicate the Scriptures, and for
better ordered thought to show the
firm foundations of the truth. These
calls are responded to.and the defence
of our holy religion is in good hands
uut critical ana logical defences are
not the greatest need. It is even
questionable whether the gospe
should ever b put upon the defen
sive. That is not its true atitude
"The preaching of the cross is
the power of God." Not the logica
and critical defense of the truth, but
the preaching of it, is "mighty
through God." If those who are put
in trust with the gospel would but
make full proof of its power, and
ail who love the gospel would help
together by prayer, such a "demon
stration of the Spirit" might be wit
nessed as no one would be able
gainsay or resist.
The evidence of power is proved
efficiency. Paul writes to the Corin
thian Christians: "Be not deceived:
neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor
adulterers, . . nor thieves, nor
covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers,
nor extortioners, shall inherit the
kingdom of (!od. And such were
some of you; but ye are washed, but
ye are sanctified, but ye are justified
in the name of the Lord Jesus, and
by the Spirit of our God." In say
ing this he adduced an "evidence of
Christianity" superior to any that
was ever written, , however ably
composed. Such triumphs of the
cross have been wrought in heathen
lands and in lands nominally Chris
tian, They are possible wherever
Christians exist who have a living
faith in their Lord and ba the veri
ties of the gospel, and who testify the
truth in humble reliance upon the
grace of the Spirit.
Never was there more need of the
multiplication of proofs of like char
acter. It is a time when "the enemy
has come in as a flood," and there is
need that "the ixru should set up a
standard against him." The church
os have been accustomed to observe
at the beginning of the year "a week
of prayer." This, like all other peri
odical observances, is in danger of
becoming a formal routine. It can
Ik; rescued from such a decline only
by a new outpouring of the spirit of
prayer. And, surely, here is an ob
ject for most earnest supplication,
that the word of the Lord may have
free course and be glorified; that the
power of the gospel may overcome
unbelief by subduing the hearts of
men to "the obedience, of faith."
Before the sight of victory achieved
doubts of the divinity of the gospe
will disappear. The truth will be
made manifest, through the evidence
that it is energised by the Spirit for
the renewal of men's hearts and
Jives, making them the living troph
les oi us power.
sunshine of loving looks and smiles
of welcome and encouragement; a
house may be a habitation, but never
truly a home. Why then should we
neglect or ignore those gentle courte
sies of life in our intercourse with our
kind, and seem or bo harsh and cold
and unloving, when it would cost us
so little to win the grateful memory
of human hearts, or shed the balm of
consolation on some wounded spirit?
Were it not for these gentle and holy
charities of daily life, our pilgrimage I
ncj-e would toe outer and our crosses
heavy indeed. Let us try then to
cultivate a loving, forbearing spirit,
and show its influence in our words
and deeds. Let us remember that a
loving, kindly nature is the distin
guishing mark of the true Christian,
and an emanation from Him whose
name is Love; Him, who while here,
God though he was, and ruler of the
mighty universe, scorned not to love,
sympathize with.and seek and accept
the love and sympathy of the lowly

There is a fable told about a king's
garden, in which the trees and all the
flowers began to make complaint.
The oak was sad because it could not
bear flowers; the rosebush was sad
because it could not bear fruit, the
vine was sad because it had to cling
to the wall and could cast noshadow.

"What good can I do," said the vine.
The king saw a little pansy,
which held up Its glad, fresh face,
while all the rest were sad. And the
king said: "What makes you so glad
vyhen all the rest pine and are so
sad?" . "I thought,',' said the pansy.

Miss ilavergail has said: "Every
year, 1 might almost say every day,
that I live, I seem to see more clear
ly how all the rest and gladness and
power of our christian life hinges on
one thing, that is, 'Taking God at
His word,' believing that he really
means exactly .what He says, and ac
cepting the very words in which he
reveals His goodness and grace,
without substituting others or alter
nating the precise moods and tenses
which He has seen fit to use."

How few there are who estimate
aright the power of kindly words and
deeds! and yet what mortal being has

benefit and sweetness? How many

heart has been softened into peni

influence! How many a weary lot has
been cheered and brightened by their
gentle sunshine! What music there
is in a kindly uttered expression of
sympathy! what radiance in a gentle,
approving smile! And how little. do
these Heavenentailed duties of life
cost the giver, and how much do
they confer on the receiver! Trifles
they may seem, judged by tiie cold
calculations of some; but to those

ought, they are sweet and holy du
