Text: Bccnuso Christ also
suffered for us, leaving us an ex
ample, that wo should follow in
his stops. 1 Peter: II: XXI.
Few days havo been of moro
interest in tho world's history
than that one, peaceful and glor
ious, when tho humblo citizen of
Nazareth appeared at tho ford of
Jordan near Bethabora and re
quested baptism at tho hands of
John tho Baptist. Becauso that
was thobegining of thoso years of
intense public service. It has been
taught that tho path of Christ be
gan hero; that tho stops refored to
by Potor began at tho Jordan, it
has beon said that tho previous
thirty years wore in shadow. Not
bo. Volumnos aro sometimes
compressed into a sontence.
Luke has shown this marvelous
power. Eighteen years of tho
Christ lifo aro as plainly pictured
in ono verse as they could bo in
a volume. ''Ho went down with
thorn, and oamo to Nazaroth and
was subject unto them. And
Jesus increased in stature and
wisdom, and in favor with God
To follow His steps makes it
necessary to know the, path. from
tho beginning. That the beginning
is boyhood is evident if symmetry
Horticulturists havo a funda
mental precept: do not cut away
big limbs, remove the twig.thon
there is no wound from saw or ax
which tho bark will not cover but
which allows decay and mars.
Here nature teaches in harmony
with the word, train the child.
Christ, tho pattern of childhood
had his days ot preparation. "Ho
was subject;" Obedience. "In
creased in wisdom and stature;"
Culturo, mental and physical.

How Ho did it wo may not
know; How wo may do it wo do
know. First in tho home,
with all its blessed influences,' if
it is tho right kind of a homo.
As Christ leaves a path of
light from Jordan what do wo
seo? Trust, loyalty, lovo,benov
olenco. Why this teaching? For
our good and for others good, to
make us happy and useful.
As Ho would mako us happy
aro not tho poots words true :
"Evorywhero tho heart awake
Finds what pleasure it can
Everywhere the light and shade
By tho gazor's oye is made.
In ourselves tho sunshino dwells,
From ourselves tho music swells,
By ourselves our lives aro fed,
With swoetur bitter daily bread."
For those who follow Jesus
every year will bo happier. Dr.
Stors said boforo closing his re
markable ministry: "Lifo on
earth grows bettor and sweeter
as one goes on in it." To mako
us moro useful horo,wo must see,
is the real cause of the exhorta
tion. 1. As a restraining influence
2. As an attractivo force, so
much oasior to draw than to drive
and moro offootivo.
3, Ah an inducement to good
stewardship in tho field of bene
ficence. Christ's lovo was overflowing.
Ho gives not only broad and
clothes and light and air, but a
thousand things to please; tho
homo redolent with lovo and joy;
tho birds to aing; tho flowers to
bloom and swecton.
His truo follower will omulato
Mb axampie and not dole out ono
porcont from income, to help tho
poor and ovangelizo tho world.
As Christ gave generously, so
will tho true follower in his path
givo not grudgingly, and will fill
doplotod treasuries. Tho world
would speedily bocomo evango
lized and that would haston tho
coming of our Lord.
Wo cannot always soo the way
that leads to heights above
Wo sometimes quito forget Ho
loads us on with hand of lovo,
And yet wo know tho path must
lead us to Immanuol's land,
And when wo roach lifo's Bummit
wo shall know and understand.
