at all, but there comes forth God's word
lu all Its grand simplicity as thn mes
sage of Jehovah: In the bej;liin1iii; Uod
created the heavens and the earth. Wo
are told that the earth was void and
ilarkness was on the face of the deep.
Hut around all that chaos there was the
promise of life, for the spirit of i 1 oil
moved upon the face of the waters, and
God said, "Let thrre be Unlit," and
there was light. 1 be preacher said be
was struck when he took this account
of the creation by Its extreme sim
plicity, lake up any suicnuiia ooox
and you will llnd It full of linrd words,
but here comes plain and simple (lod'a
blessed truth, God's account of the
creation. And God said, "Let there
Unlit." nnil t hero was Unlit.
Years ago Inlldels used to llnd fault
with this account of the creation, and
they said: 'How fiollsh It Is." Mo'es
llrst says light was created on the llrst
day, and forgets to give mi account of
the sun until the fourth day. It has
been proved that the sun Is only what
Mot.es rails It, a light-bolder, and that
light did exist.
Again with the text, l'aul had before
him the Old Testament sorlptures and
the Jews have the same scriptures here.
We are told that the .lows In London
have acceptetl the Old Testament as It
has been recently revised. Well, l'aul,
as he thought of this uccount ul the crea
tion and as he reflected how from the
darkness of this world God had evolved

come down to our own experience mid
unu every cniui is iiorn mio mis
world lu ignorance of his own
destiny. Some peoplo say that
children aro brought Into the
world In a slate of slnleesness
we are the children of wrath and tlnrk
ness, but the fact Is that all of us were
borne Into this world in a state of dark
nesa. This reminded him of a lady who
found In the ignorant parts of Ireland a
near mute, anu tuo tauy uycareiut tram
lng taught him tho tleaf-and.dumb ul
phabet, and taught til m a good deal
about the world and the God who made
him. One day he came running to her,
anu uy uia aipnauci torn tier lie tuiu oecn
In the village, on the hillside, and
through the valleys, and he had hunted
and could not llnd God. That would
havo been the stain of each one of
us, hut that we bavo been brought
up in a country permeated witu civiliza
tion nnd Chrlstlun doctrine, and there
might be some of them that dav who
bad covered their souls with darkness
more Intense. How munv wero there
to-day In the city who are carrying n
toau oi uarKness. pom mere were any
of them present thereto-day who were In

light will come In II we win only open
our uearts. iiere you see men uenu
lng every energy to make money
and build a tine house, raise his family
respectauiy, as u tins worm were tne
only thing. The beasts of the Held, the
beasts of burden, are what God has
made them: but what of some men who
think If our life were nil they had to
live for as though eternity were not be
foretheni. "He that followeth me," says
uirisi, -snail not wane in uarKness, out

blessed light. Although the Lord cov

light Is shining, and though Satan may
come sometimes In n robe of sblnlng

Ignorance In which he will steep your
souls In. God loves to reveal bluiBelf In
light. There are several Illustration
of this, Kemember how when Moses
was In the Land of Mldlan tending to
his father's flocks, he saw a burning
uusu. now, wnen tne i.oru went before
tne people of ismei, no appeared as a
shining pillar of tire by night. Also,
when Moses went un into the mountain.
although the mountain was shaking and
trembling; although clouds covered the
mountain he saw the light ot God. God
delights to use this beautiful
figure of light. What Is the light
that fills this bouse? The ablest
man In this world can give us no
satisfactory answer. He can take a
prism and divide It up Into the seven
colors, tbo artist can take your picture
by It, but he cannot tell you what It is.
If we want to know anything about God
to-day, we have to go and behold God
In the race, Jesus Christ, be Is the only
revelation, the true revelation or God to
men, This will be found by reference
I roved the Itomsn fleet with, l'aul uses

Those who neglect resiling (1 oil's
word do not grow In grace; those who
suiter days and iliijs lo goby without
looking at It, they cannot expect lobe

Hut we do so now, beholding as In a
glass the glory of the Lord, tho more
and more let us behold his glory In this
precious wont and ue shnll be changed.
For Jesus comes and he reveals what
God Is to us If we do not look at him wo
are In Intense darkness, lie says In the
llrst place that God Is n Holy God. Can
you point out a life full of such holiness
aa Christ's; no man can put anything
side by shin with that lire of spotless
purity. There are men who point to
l)avld and say: "Look how David
sinned." They are Ilka a llv which

holiness as the clear placid lake reflects
