VI tesuts of Arms Conference and

Waslington. - The transportation
situation, prohibition enforcemont
and farm credits were placed to the
forefront among the national prob
lems pressing for solution in the an.
nual address of President Harding,
made in person, to the Congress of
the United States.
President Harding also took occa
slion to r~ply directly to those whon
he said itail assumed that the Unit--d
States had taken itself "aloof and
apart, unmindful of world obligations."
He declared these gave "scant credit"
for the "helpful part" America had
assumed in international relatin3, re
ferring particularly to the arms con
Of the prohibition situation, the exe
cutive asserted there were conditions
of enforcement "which savor of na
tion-wide scandal." He made no rec
ommendations on this score, but an
nounced his purpose to call an eart/
conference of the governnors of the
states and territories with the fecr,-l
authorities to formulate definite poli
cies of national and state co-operaticu
in the administering of the laws.
Declaring there was no problem ex.
ceeding the importance of the one of
transportation, Mr. Harding told Con
gress there was need to begin on plans
to co-ordinate all the transportation
facilities-rail, water and motor. As
to the relief of the railrod problem,
he suggested merger of lines.
Turning to the recent railroad
strike, the President proposed that
the federal tribunal dealing with dis
putes between the carriers and their
workers to be given ample authority
to enforce its decisions. He voiced a
preference for abolition of the rail
road labor board and tho placing of
its functions under an enlarged inter
state commerce commission.
Should the decision be to continue
this board in existence, however, he
suggested that the partisan member
ship be abolished to the end that the
tribunal be impartial and the head
quarters moved from Chicago to Wash
ington, so there might be direct 'con
tact with the commission.

of the executive for enactment of leg

The Call to a Life

TEXT-Dy faith Abraham, when he
was called-obeyed.-Heb. 11:8.
The art gallery of God's Word is
hung with the most wonderful master
pieces of history
and biography, of
poetry and proph
ecy. One of the

S.the portraits of
faith's heroes. It
is quite difficult
in a study of
these to determine
which I s t h e
greatest. The fact
is each one seems
to illustrate a dif
ferent virtue of godly living.
The pen pictures of Abraham furnish
most interesting and profitable study
for us today. Many chapters are nec
essary to set forth the life of faith
eXeiipiled in the one who earned the
divine designation, "The Father of the
faithful." We shall endeavor to em
phasize several phases of the life of
faith in succeeding sermons. We begin
with "The Call to a Life of Faith."
There are only two positions for the
soul in its relationship to God-faith
or sight. "We walk by faith not by
sight" is an inescapable differentiation
of God's Word. One or the other-a
"by faith" or a "by sight" life.
The sight position is the sense posi
tion. It is the pursuit of the material
-satisfied with things that perish ; a
life gulded by natural reason. Faith
is the opposite. It is "the evidence
of things not seen, the substance of
things hoped for"-a life which can
only find its pleasure in God, taught
by His Word, and guided by His
It was to a life of faith that Abra
ham, a Chaldean prince, was called. The
glory of Go appeared td' him, living
in the blaze of material splendor. He
obeyed and went out into an unknown
land, simply trusting in the God who
had promised. Many times since
Abraham's far away day has the vision
appeared and the call sounded. To
Moses, keephig sheep in Midlan; to
Elisha, plowing in the field ; to Isaiah,
ministering in the temple ; to Amos,
gathering fruit at Tekoa ; to Peter,
washing fishing nets; to Matthew, col
lecting taxes; to Saul of Tarsus, bent
on persecution. To Cromwell, from
his farm; to Luther, from his monas
tery cell; to Carey, from the cobbler's
bench ; to Moody, from the shoe store.
And, to every man and woman who has
heard the Gospel, the vision of God
and the voice of God have come, cll
ing away from sight to faith. This
call involves three things:
We have the very words of the call
in Genesis 12:1-3. "Get thee out of
thy country, and from the kindred,
and from thy father's house unto a
land that I will show thee." He was
to sever connections with every phase
of' the 01(d life, its habits, its associa
tions, its environments. This was to
he the tuagie word opening the (loot

PP'MARY TOPIC-Jesus in the Home
of Fr ands.
JUNIOR TOPIC-Jesus Among Friends
and Foes.
-Friends and Enemies,, of Jesus.
-Christ's Methods of Dealing With Peo
1. Jesus In the Home of Friends
(Luke 10:38-42).
There is no place where true charac
ter is so clearly revealed as at home.
1. his Reception (v. 38). Martha
was the lead of the home, therefore
she received him. It would be a fine
thing if all homes were open to re
ceive Jesus.
2. Mary Sitting at Jesus' Feet (v.
39). She, of fine spiritual discern
ment, knew that sitting at the Lord's
feet and hearing His Word was that
which would please hint most.
3. Martha Cumbered About Much
Serving (v. 40). Bloth sisters loved
the Lord. It would be impossible to
say which loved the more; but Martha
was bent on providing a fine meal for
Him. She was trying to do so many
things that she was on the verge of
distraction. This had so completely
got on her nerves that she found fault
with Jesus for permiting Mary to
leave the kitchen to listen to ills
teaching. Not only did she criticize
her sister and Jesus, but she assumed
the authority to comnmand Him to send
Mary back to the kitchen to help.
4. Jesus' Answer (vv. 41, 42. (1)
Rebuked Martha (v. 41). He did this
tenderly, for He knew that she loved
lnim sincerely. (2) Defends Mary
(v. 42). lie declared that but one
thing was needful, and that Mary had
chosen that good part whlch could not
be taken away from her.
II. Jesus Among Foes (11:14-23; 29
82; 37-5-1).
1. Charged With Being in League
With the Devil (vv. 1.1-23). Being un
willing to receive Himt as the Son of
God, and yet unable to account for
Ills mighty works, they declared H

zebub, the chief of demons. Jesum
exposed the fallacy of their reasoning
by showing that in that case Satat
would be arrayed against )himself, ont
therefore would destroy his own king
2. Refused to Believe Iis Miracles
(vv. 29-32). They asked for a sign
to which He replied that they would
have a sign from heavers in Iis death
and resurrmectin. He reminded them,
however, that their request showed
unbelief surpassing that of the heath
en queeni of the South, and the wicked
people of Nineveh.
3. Wickedness D~enounced (vv. 37
