Prepared by Rev. O. M. 8tearna. ', ' , C Copyright; 1007, by American Pma AoocUtion. Four of the great words of the gos pel and the epistles of John are life and light and love and believe, the first three referring to God and what tie la and the luBt showing bow lie and U that lie Is aud ' baa bet o trie ours. ! Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Is the Cvlng manifestation of this life and tint and love, for It Is all seen fully In nim. and when we receive Illm we I become the .manifestation of this life and light and loe to others. This Is the teaching of the Scriptures; but, oh, how believer fail la the manifestation! Chapter 11 tell us lu the cloning Kerses that wbllo at the Passover iiuany believed lu Ills tuiuie when they fctaw Ills miracles, yet He did not be J'.Te In them because He knew them fnd knew what was In them. ' The word -commit nil to of verse it is Just the word "believe of verse fci and elsewhere, and thus we have n chapter I 12: 11. 21. two deflnttlons bf believing which mono to "receive" llim or "commit unto" Ulna. According to the revised version, J these two chapters are connected (thus: "lie Iliuwelf knew what was la man. Now there was a ma a." So we ( have la Xicotlemus a sample man and lot chapter it a sample woman. The samples are about as different as they ' rould powlbly ' 1. the one being out wardly as coed as pomdble and the sthrr as bad as iKnwIble. yet the first lacHt be born aatn, and even such w the last -may" be bora again. This ' rHK'l Is written that receiving Jesus Utfm as the Sou of God. all such may tif life tbroucii Illm. for "He that f fc:h the Son of flod bath life, aad be Ihar hath not the Son of God bath . tife" ,rhpter xx. 31: I John . 12). the .uoKtioo of life or death in tbe t r:rn)res Is not one of existence la &V Nxly or oat of the body, although lUt fe sou.etl.ue. referred to. but It etf! lueUon of knowing God by be- connected with IHm or knowing blm (John xvH. 8; Tit "v ' tci Th. k M i.jt 1.. .

He bad also a convic tion , that Jesus was no ordinary man and acknowledged that His works de clared that God was with Him In a special manner.'- It Is not learning,' bat life, that saves, and Jesus, seeing the great need of this man, at once tells him of it. Many In dealing with such a one todrfy would assure him that be was a Christian already and needed nothing but continuance in the things be already knew. . Strong emphasis on the -necessity of the new birth was never more needed than now, for all who are not saved are condemned, lost, dead In trespasses and sins (verse IS; Luke tlx. 10; Eph. 11, 3-0).; All hare been stung by the serpent (sln and are as truly perishing spirit ually as the Israelites were physically. They saw In the brawn serpent on the pole tbe likeness of that which caused their death In the place of death. They did not need to understand It but they did need to look upon the brazen ser pent as they " were commanded, and every bitten one who looked lived. In Jesns on tbe cross we see Him In tbe likeness ' of sinful flesh, made uln for as, bearing our sins In His own body. And the soul that believes that God so loved blm that lie gave His only begotten Son that be should not per lab, but bare everlasting lire, that soul thus receiving Him Is not condemned, but has everlasting life and shall never perish. This Is the new btrtb. receiv ing Into us a life that was never there before, evea Christ wbo Is our life. , Klcodeniu was a moral, religions. Intellectual man. but only a natural man. and therefore talked somewhat footlxhly concerning these spiritual things, tor to tbe natural man the things of the Spirit of God are only foolishness (I Cor. 11.

He Insisted that this was a matter of Importance to whkh the members of the general assembly ; were entitled as throwing invaluable light on the situation. Doughton, of AUeghany, took occa sion to pronounce the movement of effort In this direction as "very smal peanut politics.? A great number of members on the democratic side op posed the resolution. . The .motion to table it, however, was lost. Mr. Har shaw, republican, and Mr. Grant, re publican, spoke forcibly for the reso lution and a number of democratic members Indicated their willingness to call for tbe correspondence.
