REV. JOHN C. TROY.
SERMON BY RIVEHNDBt
"The on Thing Needful" for
Sack One to Have Religion
Oeodi free and SVure A Good
Rev. John C. Troy, the new pastor of
Riverside M. E. Cburcb South, preached
to a good congregation yesterday morn
ing. This was his second Sunday as paa-
tor of this church and the large gather
ing evidenced the popularity which he is
rapidly gaining. Mis text was:
But one thins U needful, and Mary hath
chosen tbat good part, wntcn snail not dc
taken away from her. Luke 10:411.
"Our Lord at the time he gave utter
ance to the words of the text, was on a
journey, to be ended at Jerusalem," said
the speaker. "With His disciples, He en
tered into a certain villuge, (which we
must doubtless understand to be Beth
any) 'and a certain woman named Mar
tha received Him into her house.' This
was a home where our Saviour at any
time would find a welcome and where the
humanity of His nnture could obtain rest
and comfort. There was another sister
in this home, 'which also snt at Jesus'
feet, and heurd His word.' Martha be
ing 'cumbered ubout much serving,' be
comes worried at the seeming indiffer
ence of her sister and enters a protest :
'Lord, dust thou not cure thut my sister
hntb left me to serve alunc; bid her, there
fore thut she help mc-' I1'"18 adminis
tered a rebuke, but it is given in u very gen
tle and Invinii manner; 'Murthn, Mnrthn,
thou nrt cnrelul and troubled about
many tliiuus,' he said. She hud allowed
herself to be drawn nut in so manv differ
ent directions as to cive unnevexstiry
worry. 'Hut one thing is needful.' There
is but one thing that should be the object
01 our greatest anxiety ; tunt one ining.
the cood Dart. Murv hnd chosen, and
evidently to my mind, this good part is
religion without distraction, or, in other
words, religion us m tree mini such a con
fusion ns would necessarily come Irom n
multiplicity of objects crowding the mind
and diverting the heart from spiritual
things. It is not mv purpose to speuk
disparagingly nf religion in service, or, to
intimate for u moment that Martha's
Inith in and love for the Savior wns not
as genuine us her sisters, but to lay
down this nrouosition:
"First. That religion is a good thing.
I speak of 'pure religion and iimtrhleil;
that keens us unspotted from the world
We know that a good tree cannot bring
forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree
brinir forth com! Iruit. Now, it religion
was not in itsell something good, its ten
dency would lie iiermcious una ns a con
sequence its fruit would be evil. The
Almighty bus nut left us to groi our
way in the dark, in rcgurd to that which
most concerns our every interest, both
now and hereafter, hcnei, 'wherefore by
their fruits ye shall know them' is a sure
rule for guidance. The truth of this max
im is made manifest in the every dnv bus
iness transactions and esievinlly in
the effect thut this religion ol our
Lord bus upon nations and in
dividuals. Who can doubt for
a moment, but that America and Eng
land to-day owe their prosierity to the
benign influences of reliuious truth?
Ashcville with her many churches, col
lege and schools can stand as a witness
that she is indebted to the same power
for rood. Kelmion is a cood thing be
cuusc it lifts man from the very depths of
degradation; elevates him to a nigner
standard ot moral excellencies and putsn
new song in his mouth, eveu praises unto
the Lord. It stretches out the hand of
honesty, love nvd sympathy; it does in
fact for sutlcring humanity what nothing
else can do. Notice the joyous expres
sion on the face ot that wile and motrer.
A lew years ago it was not thcore. The
husband was dead in trespass and sin,
and his life wus a barren one; the wile
wns careworn, the children ragged, and
he a mere parasite of the prodigal. In
temperance, God worst enemy
had marked him for a vic
tim ; hut the spirit of the
Lord at Inst touched the sinful heart and
through faith and repentance salvation
came to that house and now the poor
drunkard is changed into a loving Hus
band and afTectionute father. Ves indeed,
religion is good, tor it is the 'one thing
needlul, and thousands or once heart
broken wives and mothers as they real
ixe their own safety and that of their
loved ones, win stand up tins Minontn
day and say umcn.
"Aguin we observe that religion is free.
The right of choice implies freedom of
will. Mary had chosen the Lord as her
portion; he was all in all to her, the fnir
est among ten thousand and altogether
lovely. The religion which is given
through Him is free to every one. The
rir prodigal should lift up his head and
glnd, tor 'whosoever will, let him
take the water of life freely.' What a
blessed consolation that we do not have
to go and then prove we hnd a right.
rumply our going gives us the right
to take thut whichourSnviorsnid should
be in us. This great treasure is tree and
we are to take it Ircclv. It is to betaken
without stint. There should be a con
tnnt, daily resort to the fountain nf life
and you shall always be filled. Keep this
religion, hold it fust, for it is good and
free to all and so lung as your lives are
adorned and lienutilied bv its fruits, you
shall never thirst lor the unsatisfying
draughts ni the world pleasures.
"In conclusion we may observe that
religion is sure. 'Which shall not be taken
away from her ' lllesscd be God for this
truth, that it shall not be taken away,
True some who have tasted ol the heav
enly gift, and were made partaken of

drawn off by the allurements of wealth,
the fictitious trappings of honor, and
thirst again lor the polluted and poison
ous Indulgences of a sinful lite. But that
does not argue that religion is any the
leas sure. Toe delect Is not there, but to
the sinful hearts nf those who allow
themselves to be led by the spirit of the
evil one. uur property may lie swept
away by fire or water, friends prove un-
laltblul, toe persecutor may assail ana
malign, but Cbristiansare sale at the feet
of the crucified son of God. I lest h may
come but through all this, the godly can
see the band of God. Vet, mv christian
friend, you have a treasure in this reli
gion which is so sure and that still re
mains to comfort and sustain in the hour
of adversity but remember bow weak is
the earthen vessel that contains It! keep
close to the rocs 01 agra ana trust ever in
