the eye, espetcially the offices, which

A BRILLIANT SUNDAY SERMON BY
T-=E EV. WILLIAM %. RICHARDS.
NEW YORK CITY.-In the Brick
Presbytzrian Church. Sunday morn
ing. the pastor. the Rev. William R.
Richards, preached to a large congre
gation on "Following Jesus." He took
for his text Matthew ix:19. "And
Jesus arose and followed him and
so did his disciples," and said:
The question comes to us. What it
meant to be a Christian at the tim.'?
when Jesus was living on the earth?
Of course, the word "Christian" had
not then come into use, but the fact
is the Christian life existed, and our
question is. "What was it like. how
it began, how it showed itself, by
what upward step would a man prove
that he had made the great choice
and had become what we would now
call a Christian? If we want to know
we have to look into the gospel of
history, and, looking there, we find
a plain and emnDhatic answer in one
word. the word "follow." For the
common way of announcing that any
man had made the great choice for
Jesus was to say. "He rose and fol
lowed Him." There are sixty-nine
plhes where we read of one and an
other and of many at once who fol
lowed Jesus. That is the historic pic
ture of the Uhristian life in those
days. It is the leader walking here
and there about the country and his
disciples following Him. In the beau
tiful parable Jesus is described as
the shenherd goe- on ahead and his
sheep, who proved they were his sheep
because they knew His voice. follow
ing him That is the rezular order
of the sacred history: Jesus going
before and the others following. But
there is one singular marked exceD
tion to that order. It is all the more
striking because it stands alone. Just
once in the gospel of history this
term is used in the other order. Some
one else is leading. it is Jesus that is
following. Who can this other leader
he who sDoke with such authority that
Jesus followed him? You might think
it was some great teacher and lead
er exnsrienced in the things of God.
But it was not so. because after
.Tesus had once claimed the oosition
as teacher He never consented to fol
low another teacher. Or perhaps
some sunremne eclesastic. who, he
cause of his scred office could take
nrecedence of Jesus. But it was not
so. for if you look into the history
you -finq that our Lord never. for a
moment rendered such supremacy to
any church official. His word was a!
ways "Follow me." Or you mieht
think it was some civil ruler, like
King Herod or Pilate. or the great
Caesar himself at Rome. But it was
not so: He never consented to follow
any great man on earth. He did say.
"Rendier unto Caesar the tbinzs that
ar Caesar's," but He was talking
about taxes. not His personnl allegi
ance: that was not one of the things
that were Ceesar's. It was not at the
summons of any person that .Tesus
rose up arnd followed,. What was It,
Tc-2 remem>r the story. The man
was named Jairus. He was, It is
true, a ruler of the synagogue, hut
t:at meanti little more than the leader
of a pra-yer meeting, It would have
been .iust the same had he been a
teraar. He was a beggar on this oc
cacion: "While Jesus spake these
things. behold, there came a certain
rule:-. saying. My daughter is even
now dead, but come, and lay thy hands
upon her and she shal! live. And
Jesus rose up and followed him," The
secret is out. There was a man who
could speak for a momest in a tone
of authority, then. to .T ..us. because
he spake through more immediate
contact with the world's sorrow and
and pain and need: that was what
gave him his precedence. Lead on,
man! Jesus follows. How strange!
It secmed to me that we might take
this as one of the passages that re
mind us of the Lord's humanity, show
ing how He was shut out by limita
tion of knowledge. how He must wait
until some one csme and showed Him
the home where the shadow of death
was. I suppose it is true in some
sense, but as you muse upon, you feel
it was also an illustration of His
Godhood, What kind of message is
it that comes with authority to the
ears of the Creator? Some story of
His creature's need. It is cur weak
ness that moves God, our humility,
emptiness- It is our cry of emptiness
our cry of need, that moves God. If
it were possible to conceive of such a
thing as the limitation of the knowl
edge of God-if you could conceive of
yourself as goin'g into the presence
f God and informing Him that some
where in some forgotten corner of
His universe there was some unknowh
creature, unknown to Him, that was
perishing for want of Him, and you
were the only ggde .euflied to show
the way to tiial caaire, we may
say, with all reverence that you could
exect Cod Himself to rise up and
folow you. And Jesus r-cse up and
followed Jairus to the house of sor
row. My friends, let us comfort our
selves with the a.ssprance that a~ny
such message as that will move the
Lrd today just as in the days of
.aius. Whatever pain or sorrow
there is in your own house or the
house of your friend, you may go to
Him straightway and tell Him, and
when you return you may be sure
that you are taking His presence with
ou. Be sure a man of that kind is
privileged character: he takes pre
cdence of ail. When Jariu's nas. ha
ished speaking, Jesus rises up and
Now that is only the first part of
our text. This is the secornd part:
"And so did His disciples." As diS
cinies it was their business to follow
Jesus, anid now Jesus was following
Jairus. is not this a most excellent
example for any loyal church? The
question that ought to come to us is
the question of leadership, human
leadership of a Christian church, and,
of course, I shall often expect to find
that kind of leadership in the church
itself. Men and women experienced
in the things of God who can serve

t was so in the days of the apostles.
ien like Paul who charged the
younger members that they should
follow him as he was following Christ
and it was safe counsel. There are
leaders in the church. but the ques
tion which our text suggests is wheth
er there may ever be any kind of
safe leadership inside the church from
outside the chur-ch. If any man from
outside appears and says "come."
would it ever 're safo for us to fol

army of Rome, but you and I are per
suaded that it is more blessed to fol
low the Master "who not having seen
we love." Christ has never consent
ed that we should foliow ary human
priesf. Then. again, the church
might consent to follow Caesar or
some representative rf nolitical ocwer
in the world. In following Caesar
we rrn the risk of losing the more
important guidance of Jesus. No po
litical power. no human prestige. no
wisdom of the human understanding
is a safe guide for any church of
Then can you conceive of any hu
man leadership that it would be safe
for the church or disciples to follow?
Yes. Here is this man. Jairus, who
comes from outside with this pitiful
story, and Jesus rises and follows
him, and so do His disciples. Any
man who knowns the way to any kind
of human sorrow or need or wrong
may claim a hearing from any church
of Jesus Christ. and if in the hearing
they find he knows the way better
than we, be may claim not only a
hearing, but the following from the
church of Jesus Christ. It Is direct
imitation of His examnle. The church
has often been too slow; sometimes
because we did not like the man who
called. The personal character of the
leader does not come into the ques
tion at all. We want all those in
sorrow, to know that the best ulace
to come is always the church of .Tesus
Christ. That the message will re
cieve the promptest attention. and no
poor Jairus need ever zo home along.
Once his story was finished, Jesus
got un and followed him, and so did
His disciples. If we are disciples.
it is our business to be following
Christ. But how to follow Him? Who
will lead us? I have no doubt that
sometimes our Lord shows us the way
by those older and wiser-in the church
and sometimes He exercises His Lead
ership through those without the
church. messengers telling us of some
one who needs help, and our business
as Christians. not only as churches,
but as individuals, is to be listening
always for that appeal, looking only
to the oath that leads to the house
where they need us. We cannot see
the face of Jesus. we cannot hear His
voice; it may even seem to some o?
us that we have lost the comforting
sense of Jesus in our hearts. We
sk why He did not leave some guide
whom we could see and follow and
who would lead us back to Him and
before the words are out of our lip3
here stands this Jairus. "Come" he
says. and you listen and you rise up
and follow him, and as soon as you do
something tells you that you are not
any longer walking alone. That lost
companionship you were mourning for
has been restored to you. This was
His guide. and you have done well
to follow him.
This is not my fancy. Let me read

Doers of the Word.
To be simply a 'hearer of God's
Word is not only to deceive oneself,
but to increase one's responsibility.
"~Inasmuch as ye did it not" is a sharp
sntence which Jesus one day passed
upon His unfaithful followers. It is
a great thing to remember that God's'
Word may be translated into Chris
tian living. If for each day we shoiuld
be guided by one single precept. in
the process of time we would come
to know our Bibles as thoroughly as
we iknow our own names. but we

27. "He answering said." He replied
by quoting the great summary of man's
duty toward God in -Deut; 6:-, and a
statement of the law of love from
Lev. 19:18. The lawyer proceeds to
give a correct answer. one which Jesus
approved. "Thou shalt love." The re
ligion of the Bible does not consist
in good external ncts, in prayers. in
our zeal for Chrst, in performing the
deeds of the law. or in being made
happy. but in love to God and man.
"All thy heart." This is supreme affec
tion to God. The heart is the seat of
the affections, desires, motives and
will. "With all thy soul." He loves
God with all his soul. or rather, with
all his life. who is ready to give up life
for His sake. "All thy strength." To
the extent of giving all of our physical
powers in His service. "All thy mind."
The intellect belongs to God. This ex
braces the whole man. "Thy neighbor
as thyself." This love is the principle
in the heart from which flows the
"golden rule" (Matt. 7:12) in practice,
and the perfect keeping of all the
commandments which refer to our
duties to our fellowmen.

II. Our duty to mankind- illustrated
(vs. 29-27). 29. "Desiring to justify
himself." R. V. The conscience of
this learned lawyer was touched and
he saw that he was destitute of the
love he bad just declared to be neces
sary in order to inherit eternal life.
"Who is my neighbor?" The degree
in which he had kept the law of love
would depend on the answer to this
question. How wide a circle does
"neighbor" embrace? Unwind that
word neighbor and it measures off the
whole of our earthly life, it covers all
our practical. every-day duties. 30.
".Tesus answering said." Here it was
tnat Christ could, in a parable, show
how far Judaism was from even a true
understanding, much more from such
perfect observance of the law, as
would gain Heaven. "From .Terusalem
to .Tericho." It was a very dangerous
road, lying much of the way in a deep
ravine through soft rocks in whic'h
caves abounded, affording shelter to
miscreants who sallied forth to prey
upon travelers. It is still necessary to
have an escort in passing over that
road. 31. "Certain priest." Jericho
was one of the residences of 'the
priests who came up to the temple of
Jerusalem in turn to offer the daily
sacritices, burn incense, and pert'ormn
the temple ceremonials. "He sawv
him." And knew that a fellow 1i1:n
was suffering and in need. "Onl the
other side." He no doubt could frame
many excuses for noc stopping. 32.
"Likewise a Levite." A Levite was
one of the tribe of Levi; a priest was
of the family of Aaron in that ti'ibe.
The Levites performed the humble ser
vices of the temple, as cleaning. carry
ing fuel, and acting as c'horisters. The
scribes and lawyers were frequently
of this tribe, which, in fact, was set
apart by Moses as the intellecinal
body in the nati(;n. "Passed by." His

did the very best he could for the man

He evidently remained with him that

cents, but it would be equivalent to

question almost compelled the lawyer
to speak highly of the Samaritan.

Th'O 1ti Cross Fomzidiz. . ..
Henri Dunant, founder of the Red
Cross movement, now seventy-sir
years of age, lives in ill-health near
Lake Constance, In Switzerland. He
was first inspired by reading the story
of Florence Nightingale, and It oc
curred to him that some systematic arr
rangemnent might be made to provide
similar help to the wounde" in battle
an arrangement which should be recog
nized by both opposing forces. Ac
cordingly he went to the battle at Sol
ferino in order that be mIght see for
himself what the results of..warfare
were, and he was convinced tliat if
the terrors wer' to be mIjga~t it
would be by a properly recognized
body. Then he spent sothe' years
lecturing in various portions of En
rope, attracting little attention at first
and being generally regarded as a
crank an~d no more. The first symnpa
thetic help was fror.i Napoleon III.,
who at once determined that the ideas
of the "mere civilian" should be put
into effect as recgards his armies. Du
nant lived to see his triumph, .when the
natons of the world accepted his pro
posals in the Genevan Conference of

She Was Told That an Operation Was
Inevitable. How She Escaped it.
When a physician tells a woman suf
fering with serious feminine trouble
that an operation is necessary, the very
thought of the knife and the operating
table strikes terror to her heart, and
our hospitals are full of women coming
for just such operations.
There are cases where an operation
is the only resource, but when one con
siders the great number of cases of
menacing female troubles cured by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound after physicians have advised
operations, no woman should submit tc
one without first trying the Vegetable
Compound and writing Mrs. Pinkham.

Miss Margrct Merkley, of 275 Third
Street, Milwaukee. Wis., writes:
Dear Mrs. Pinkhami:
" Loss of strength, extreme nervousness.
shooting pains through the pelvic organs,
bearing down pains and cramps compelled
me to seek medical advice. The doctor. after
mang an examination, said I had a female
trouble and ulceration and advised an ope-a
tion. To this I strongly objected and decided
to try Ldia B. Pinkham's Vegetable Cemt
pound. Tlhe ulceration quickly healed, all
the bad symptoms disappeared and I am
once more'strong, vigorous and well."
