OUR REGULAR SUNDAY SERMON
Rev. Dr. Otho Bartholond Discusses
Things we Can and Things we Can
Brooklyn. N. Y.-Dr. Otho F. Barth
(low. pa tor of the Janes M. E. Church.
preached Suuday on *The Limitations
of Life." The text was chosen from
Colossians iv:18: -Rcmember my
bonds." Dr. Bartholow ,aid:
It is hard to conceive how the glow
ing and compreheiv -..tements of
the first three chai.ters of Paul's Epis
tle '.o the Coi Ians could be rein
'orced. Each sentence is so full of
divine truth, it fairly overflows with
Its lChrisay abr-dan -. Yet with the
words of our text Paul - id most posi
tively and b -utif ill:- reinforce every
other sPntence of tliS intensely spir
itual epistle. He did it in that charmi
ingly inferentiai way that added the
warmth of the heart to the purely
logical statements of the mind. In writ
ing to the Colossians of Christ's divin
ity and of the comp'ete and joyous
loyalty every soul should render to
Him, Paul in the few words of our text
delicately refers to the example found
in his own experience. "Remember
my bonds." This was an infusion of
experience to all tlie preceding pre
cepts that developed an incalculable
force in that unlimited element of
sympathy which were at once opera
Paul had no intention of glorifying
himself or his sufferings, neither did
he sentimentally long for human cum
fort. This very brief allusion to him
self in our text was but to strengthen
and confirm that feeling which would
exalt and glorify Christ Jesus the Lord.
What Christian in Colosse could have
read or heard Paul's letter and not
have felt when he came to the words.
'"Remember my bonds," this man
writes out of life's experience and of
what he knows-not like so many of
the religionists and philosophers of
that time out of his imaginations'and
Yet another inference is contained in
out text. It is that which emphasizes
the fact of life's limitation. In writ
ing his advices and directions to the
Colossians Paul did the very best his
position would allow him to do. He
wished and prayed to do more. Thaet
more was to be with them in person,
to give them all that he felt nos in
personal effort for Christ ana His
kingdom. Over against this wish.
this desire. this prayer, was his physi
cal imprisonment-a limitation. Pau;
was chained. The things he would do
he could not do.
The fact of life's limitation, its rec
ognition and resolution are suggestively
presented In these words of the heart.
The fact of limitation is apparent
everywhere. in everything and every
person. Go to the uttermost bound
aries of space-to the sun and stars.
limitations are there. their boundaries
are fixed that they cannot pass. Grav
itation, chemical affinity and other
agents of law bind them with invisi
ble chains to their limits. As with
these mighty spheres, so with the tini
est atom; the plane of activity and ex
pression is fixed. The reign of law
marks insuperable barriers.
In persons as well as in things the
fact of limitation is stritingly mani
fest. The body in which we live is
clearly confined in bonds. Each body
has an amount of nervous and muscu
lar energy which limits all that may
be received or given. The bonds of
place and heredity bind each man to a
very narrow zone of physical and
mental activity. That a man is what
he eats and where he lives is a certain
degree mar ifestly true.
The spiritual in man is limited in
all its expression and life by the pres
ence of the carnal. Paul's pathetic
cry: "O, wretehed man that I am;
who shall deliver im.e from the body of
this deathY' is applicable to all the
children of Adam's race. These dis
tinctions are the marks of a general
limitation, the bonds that all men in
their investigations and experience
must remember because they are of
themselves. Within the general limit
ations there are special and personal
limitations. Mental endowments, dis
position, heal2d and grace are largely
~.determinative in establisbing the indi
idual bonds that cannot be passed.
The iiervou.s prostrations, the brain
fag, the strokes of apoplexy, the creep
ing lassitudes that seize so many of our
bright and energetic people are In a
great majori*- of instances but evi
_deuces of failure to know or remamber
the physical and mental limitations
to which life is conditioned.
Failure to record and recognize per
sonal limitations and to be directed by
them causes not only lapse and disas
ter in our service to Christ, but oft-.
times the essential breaking of the
moral law. Our fathers were accus
toried to keep the commandments, to
worship God and reverence His day
by preparing hours in advance for that
most solemn and imperative duty.
Saturday preparation of body and spir
it was, in the thought of our Put'itan
ancestors, essential to the real keep
ing of those commandments that en
force our duty to God. They had a
fine recognition of the limitations in
herent in the body. Their preparation
for the Lord's day was a "remembrance
of bonds." It is only the fashion in
these progressive days to ridicule the
religious practices of these fathers of
our country. With all of which ridi
cule we have no sympathy, continuing
to believe that our g'ip on God, for
tloyalty to Christ and His law they
continue to be the most Inspiring and
helpful examples. They certainly shed
a helpful light concerning the meeting
of limitations in the keeping of those
commandments that refer to God and
They made religion a life and found
delight in it, largely because they re
membered their limitations. They re
fused to rob God by allowing the
'worlid and its activities to so rush in
upon them during six days that there
was nothing for the Sabbath but physi
cal weariness and dullness. In yet
another relation it is Imperative that
we remember our own and others' lim
itations. In relation to others we
should be quick to ask: Are we un
derstood and do we understand?
-Believing fully that nyery man Is
more than anything he does or says,
we are led to believe that all avenues
of expression and reception are to a
degree limited and incomplete-"are
in bonds." Every man has in him a
best and a worst, neither of which
fairly represents him, Many, however,
are to them final f mn their experi
ence of one or the other phase of life.

in the royal porch built by Herod, over
