A Vast Congregation at Park Avenue
Norfolk Pilot: It is estimated that
1,000 people were in attendance on the
service at Park Avenue Baptist Church
last night to hear Rev. Dr. Broughtou, ?
both auditorium and lecture room being
tilled beyond their seating capacity.
Reforo announcing bis subject. Dr.
Brouuhton stated that his theme at the
morning service to-day would be "Soul
Winning,'' and his subject for to uight
"Thu Master's Yard Stick; Or tho Way
Iii? Bord Measures Character."
From tho text: Acts i., VII., 3-30.
Subject, "The Knduement of the Holy
Ghost." Dr. Brnuahton said:
"I propose to-night to lay down the
foundation of a genuiue couversiou to
Christ. Th; promise made by .leans
Chii-t to His disciples in Luke's Oespel,
'to tarry at Jerusalem until we are en?
dued with power fron: on high.' was the
same promise as recorded in* the text.
Ou a careful examination, you will Und a
similarity in the two passages bete
recorded, and the same command rests
on the church today. It must receive
the HolyGhott to lit it for the great worn
before it. Peter, on the day of Peuta
cost, tilled with the spirit, preached to
tho multitude who were witnesses of the
new birth, .lesus needed an incarnation
lime, and this was tho incarnation period
of the Holy Spirit, and wo want a repro?
duction of that work in Norfolk to-night.
The descent of the Holy Ghost then was
no morn a special work than it is the
worK of the church now. Whenever we
comply with the terms laid down by
Chiist and His disciples, the supernatu?
ral condition of things is possible. We
must rise up out. of our slate ol unh-lief,
selfishness, avarice and pride, and grasp
something solid from the great Cod. We
must ascend the mountain peak of faith
and receive the full bhekinnl glory."
After these preliminary thoughts, the
Doctor held the vast audience snell bound
for over ftne hour in one of the most elo?
quent nnd)arunmentative*serinons in sup?
port of the doctrine of absolute holiness
that has probably ever been delivered iu
