BY REV. HI GH T. t
THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT. j
Matthew, iv.l-7.28. ]
Golden Text.—Thy kingdom ,
i-ome. Thy will be done.—Mat- ,
thew, vi.lo. I
—J 1
No greater sermon has ever been f
delivered than the masterful message, 1
that Augustine called “The Sermon
On The Mount." It was probably de- '
livered as an ordination sermon in '
connection with the calling of the '
12 to be Apostles. Gibson has 1
suggested, that so small has the word
"sermon" become In modern speech, *
that another title is needed for this '
great discourse, which contains sub- }
jeets material for a dozen sermons '
in single sentence It is a sermon
according to the definitions given us 1
in every treatise upon homiletics. It *
is unique in its class. No other sur
passes it in "its reach and sweep and *
power."
It will not be possible to consider 1
in this lesson the sermon, as a whole. J
so we will focus our attention upon
a portion of it that refers to prayer. 1
We shall fail to understand the ‘
Master's conception of the greatest '
privilege and power ever entrusted to
us. if wc did not remember that the
section concerning prayer is a part
of the marvellous s»rmon that Jesus '
preached concerning “The Gospel of 1
the Kingdom." In It He outlined the 1
spiritual character, which should be
revealed b\ His followers in their
living, in contrast with the for
mal righteousness inculcated by the
traditionul teachings of the nation’s
religious instructors. It was an ex- |
position of the whole duty of man
according to love, while His enemies
were insisting that a formal, out- 1
ward obedience to the law was de- '
minded.
In the Reatttudos. which formed ;
the introduction of Christ’s message
the Great Treacher summed up. as 1
Grist says, "His thesis, the blessed
life of the citizen of the Kingdom of
Heaven. There follows from this
fellcitious introduction a clear enun
ciation of the disciple's function in
the world; and a dear definition of
the relation of the New Reign to the
Old Covenant treating the external
commands of the Decalogue in an- (
tithesis io the inner motives and life (
of the disciple. The next sayings re
late to almsgiving or practical right
eousness. to the true nature of pray
er, to fasting, and to trust in God.
all of which are to be regulated by
the principle of making the supreme
aim to be the realization of God's
Reign. Rash judgment of one's fei
low-men is forbidden; and God’s pa
ternal relation to us is made not
only a motive of praxer but also a
basis for loving reciprocity between
men." He closes His discourse with
a matchless peroration with Its sol
emn exhortations and warnings
irawn from the two house builders,
whose work was tested by the flood.
Almost in the center of His sermon.
Jesus pointed out the spirit and sub
stance of prayer.
Spirit of Trayrr.
Christ recognized that it was
natural for all men to pray. It is the
soul of religion. In His instructions
to His disciples Vonrernins the
"Christian's vital breath," the Ixird
warned them against .some of the per
ils that every Christian faerd in His
prayer life. He them to shun
hypocrisy. Traveling in the Near
East one sees the Mohammedans
praying publicly on the streets, fehips
and shops. The Master condemned
this method of praying because it was
apt to become formal posing for the
sake of seeking praise from men. Sin
cerity is required in acceptable pray
ing. Without it communion with God
is impossible. Men may go through
the form of praying but there Is no
prayer unless "spirit with Spirit may
meet." Jesus advised secret prayer as
a preventive of formality in public
devotions, that are apt to become
hypocritical actions. The soul who
communes with God in secret will not
forget Him in his public prayers. The
greatest peril that confronts the
Church of Jesus Christ today is the
tendency to neglect secret spiritual
communion with the Father. It leads
to farawayedness of life and causes
the failure of many profound Christ
ian ■.
He warned them against the use of
vain repetitions, which characterized
the heathen worship of that time. The
Buddhists have carried this theory of
praying to a logical conclusion by
the introduction of labor-saving ma
chinery. Missionaries report how
they have found waterwheels turning
a cylinder containing short, written
prayers and every time it revolves
upos Its axis Buddhists have believed
that their prayers were being offered.
There is a danger that we may fall
Into ruts, when wc extemporize our
prayers, using vain repetitions. These
set forms and ritualistic prayers have
a place in devotional services, but we
must preserve the spirit of worship
in their use. God knows our needs
before our petitions are presented to
Him. This removes the need of use
less words. Unless our prayers are
the sincere expression of the heart's
desire, they will be valueless.
Substance of Prayer.
Jesus was a constructive critic. He
never pulled down unless H© could
give something better in its place.
Here and again in Luke's gospel in
answer to the disciples’ request to
be taught how to pray, the Master
gave them a model prayer. It was not
a form that we are to use in a stereo
type and mechanical manner. It is a
pattern that contains in its brevity,
breadth and beauty of thought the
essentials of prayer in simplicity of
speech and sublimity of thought. He
condensed His teachings into six
short petitions that should aid us in
our habitual communion with God.
Its first portion relates to God's
honor, dominion and service. The sec
ond has reference to man's "preser
vation, pardon and protection."
Its invocation is a personal recog
nition of “the parentage—Father; the
brotherhood—our Father; and the
home —heaven." It is a declaration of
faith and the foundation of our right
to approach Jehovah in prayer. It
emphasizes by its thoroughly Jewish
social principle the fraternal spirit

that ought to exist between nil who
call God “Father," and who are united
to Him through Christ Jesus. The
first petition seeks to give "Our
Fether : which art in. heaven" His
proper place through holding His
name in reverence, affection and
honor, free from any blasphemy. It
is followed by a desire that the ideals
of His Kingdom shall become domi
nant and supreme throughout the
world. All this depends upon the
third petition, when His commands,
that are so often flagrantly disobeyed,
shall be carried out on earth, as they
are in heaven.
The next petition placed first the
physical needs. He taught us to
recognize our absolute dependence
upon God for all the blessings of life,
including our health and wraith, by
the request for daily bread. We have
no right to seek such blessings ex
cept when we propose to use them for
the glory of God. The fifth request
deals with our spiritual needs, due to
our unfulfilled moral debts and short
comings in God's service. Wo can
not pray "forgive us our debts, as
we forgive our debtors," unless we
possess the true fraternal spirit that
overlooks the inquries and injustice
that we sufTer at the hands of others.
If we pray for our enemies we will
have the spirit of love for them, that
will enable us to forgive them, when
ever they wrong us. This is the only
petition in the prayer that our l-ord
emphasized by a comment, which
warns us not to pray this prayer
lightly. The last petition recognizes
(ho need of Divine leadership, if we
are to win the battles of daily life
with Satan and over all the
temptations of the evil one. This
prayer is the heart of the sermon. It
tegch.-s us the necessity of seeking
first the spiritual life, that will mani
fest itself In a life of loving service
for the glory of our Lord and the up
lift of men. The coming of Christ's
Kingdom depends upon the prayer life
of Hi* people.

I Two Score Years
j and Seven
On Monday the Palais Royal celebrates its Forty-seventh Anniversary.
B As such things go in America this occasion represents a distinct achieve
■ ment. Merely to survive for forty-seven years in the fierce conflict of
■ business is proof of lusty strength and hardy, four-square integrity. But
■ the Palais Royal has realized more than mere survival—it has grown and
flourished like the green bay tree. From the little Novelty Shop on the
B corner of 12th and Pennsylvania Avenue to the present establishment at *
■ 11th and Gis a far cry. Yet the triumphant overtones of victory are clear
■ and distinct in that cry. At the little Novelty Shop there was just a hand
■ ful of people—a corporal’s guard. There are upwards of 800 in the
present Palais Royal establishment. This vitality and virility have arisen
B from very simple things. As a matter of Tact, our business philosophy is
■ quite homespun—but it is as rugged as the rocks, and stands, like the hills,
■ on the eternal verities. Analyzed, resolved to elementals, it may be ex
■ pressed as follows;
J Quality in Merchandise
■ Economy in Price
Courtesy in Service
j" Truth in Advertising
! B
■ Those are the four points on our business compass, and our craft is
■ guided onward and upward by them. We come now to this Forty-seventh
■ Birthday Celebration. It is an occasion arising from the heart and
1 motivated by impulses that are said to be sentimental. Whether senti-
B mental or not, they are sound business.
The mood of appreciation which permeates the entire organization at
B all times is heightened and intensified for the duration of this sale. We
■ are responding at the top of our bent. Money, brains and work have been
■ used in unstinted measure.
a We have harnessed our energies for a relentless drive to offer you
■ matchless economies.
