The Walk of I
the Church
Director of Bible Coune &
Moody Bible Inststute. Chicago x
TEXT-"One God and Father of all,
who is above all, and through all, and In
you all." Ephesians 4:6.
? The Epistle to
the Ephesians falls
into two divi
sions: The High
Calling and Glory
of the Church
(ch. 1-3), and The
Practical Walk of
fte Church &
View of this HSgh
Calling (ch. 4-6).
We are now con
sidering the sec
ond divisio,n
which may be
summed up in
three ways: First,
the walk of the
church, which should be char
acterized by unity (4:1-16); sec
eond, the walk of the indi
vidual Christian, which should be a
walk of purity (4:17-5:21); third, the
walk of the family, which should be
k< charactered by loving submission
and service (5:22-6:9). The difference
between the two main divisions of this
epistle may be stated thus: in the
first, the church is presented as an or
ganism which God alene sees; in the
second, the church is set forth as an
.organization such as God would have
the world see.
Looking now for a moment at the
church as characterized by unity, we
notice three trios of unities. First
there are those specific virtues which
secure and maintain the peace and
unity of the church: they are lowlir
ness, meekness, long-suffering and for
bearance, and love.
The lowly man is one who is not
always clamoring for his rights but
is willing at times and where occasion
requires to yield those rights for the
welfare of others; he is, in other
words, the man of humble and lowly
spirit. Where this spirit is found in
any church, uni.y prevails; its ab
sence means friction.
The meek 'man is the man who
thinks as little of his personal claims
as the humble man does of his per
sonal merits ; he gladly gives place to
others and is willing to take the low
est room. How many seeds of strife
and roots of bitterness would be de- j
stroyed if this mind were in us all.
Self-importance and love of office, and
a craving for applause and leading
I tf-'Aaym^c .imity and pea Ce of
the church.
The long-suffering man is he who is
not harsh or censorious or impatient
in his dealings with those who are
weaker than himself and who have not
yet reached his attainment. He is
forbearing with the weaknesses and
faults of others and does not cease to
love or interest himself in his neigh
bor, even though he has faults and
There is next presented to us those
fundamental unities on which the
unity of the church is based, namely,
one body, one ?pirit, one hope; one
Lord, one faith, one baptism ; one God
over all, through all, in all.
The church is one body. This is
the teaching cf Scripture. At the time
of his conversion every believer was
baptized by the holy spirit into the
body of Jesus Christ One spirit, the
holy spirit, permeates all its members.
Indeed, only spirit-quickened men be
long to the real church which is the
body of Jesus Christ. There is one
hope of our calling, that is, friendship
with Christ who is the one object and
inspiration of pur hope; one object,
to realize, likeness to Christ; one
prize to win, the crown of life. Are
we not going to the same heaven, and
looking for the same Lord? The one
ness of aim of believers makes unity
and fellowship a glorious reality. Then
the church is in reality one, and
, church unity is really a fact. There
may be many denominations, yet one
body; many stars, and one star differ
ing from. another in glory, yet one
radiant sky; many regiments, each
. its own uniform and colors, but one
great army; many folds, but one fiock:
many creeds, but one faith; many ac
cents, but one common language;
many ways of doing things, but one
Here then is a true unseen unity
which binds together all believers in
the Lord Jesus Christ, and shall we
say that an outer unity pf organiza
tion is impossible? Who will dare
say that? We would be sorry to see
the handwriting of the church affixed
to such a conclusion.
Shall we deem impossible an enter
prise which secular societies are ac
complishing every day? Tell it not in
Gath, publish it not in Ascalon, that
a unity which the order of freemason
ry and the brotherhood of locomotive
engineers have succeeded in attain
ing by voluntary effort and under no
stronger force than sympathy and a
sense of common need-that such a
unity has been declared impossible to
the church of Jesus Christ! The vision
may come. If it tarry, let us wait for
lt, but meanwhile let us rest assured
of one thing, that the real church of
Jesus Christ is one body, is permeated
by one spirit, and has one hope of her
calling. ,

"My, but you've got a cold!" said
the girl wich the accentuated robes

ter as she paused in the act of yu:iiu?
'a nicked saucepan under the pile out
of sight.
"Gold?" echoed the girl at the small
hardware counter in a tone of infinite
scorn. "Got a gold? What I've got
is as an iceberg to a small icicle when
it comes to golds! But I thought I
had a good time getting it, M'ree!"
"Howjuh do it?" inquired the girl
with the robespierre collar.
"Why, the Jolly Rover Social club
gave a midsummer party the other
night" explained the afflicted one.
"In zero weather!" cried the girl at
the enamelware. "For the land's Kat?!
We?? they erazy? S'pose you had a
beach party and went for a sv/im, and
had ice cream for refreshments after
ward! B-r-r-r!"
"Nod exactly," said the sufferer.
"Of course, it was zero, but that's
what made it interesting. It's always
interesting to do tilings people don't
expect you to do, isn't it?"
"Maybe," agreed the girl at the en
amelware counter. "But there are lim
its! Now, if any one requested me to
go on a violet picking expedition in
January it would be unexpected, but,
nevertheless, crazy.- I? hope I have
sense enough to know a snowbank
from a steam radiator. I don't wonder
you have a cold!"
"We had the party at the hall/' ex
plained the girl at the hardware coun
ter. "And it would have been all right
only something seemed to go wrong
with the heating plant. The president
of the club said he told the janitor to
have it hotter than usual, but the jani
tor must have got mixed and done the
opposite. So when we came in dressed
in white organdies and such things
everybody turned purple almost at
"Now, it doesn't help a girl's temper
to know that she's a light heliotrope
tinge and she can't be her own sweet
self when she realizes that ?she has a
bright red nose and goose pimples on
her hands and arms! So everybody
started with a bad temper. Jimmy
said I stepped on his feet, but I didn't
-it was his last summer shoes that
were too small for him and his feet
were numb from cold, anyhow. He
didn't listen kindly to my explanation,
because when we sat down to talk
there was an icy blast from the win
dow right down his collar, and Jimmy
is awfully sensitiva to drafts. x So he
got mad at me and went over to talk
to that Flossy Soller-her in the rib
bons-because he said he wouldn't get
pneumonia for any girl and I had put
him there on purpose.
"To get even with Jimmy I smiled at
Percy Wagner and he took me to have
some lemonade that ought 'a' been
boiled, it was so cold, and then he sat
me down in a corner and talked to
me, and Jimmy could see us, and I
wouldn't 'a' moved if I'd frozen to the
spot. I 'most did, too, because there
was a cold air radiator in the floor
right there and ? know the other end
was connected with the north pole. I
had on my ruffled dimity and white
shoes and hosiery and my teeth were
chattering. Percy's nose looked frost
bitten and his knees knocked together.
When we tried to dance we sort of fell
around like clothespins.
"Then we sat in a circle and ate ice
cream and our throats froze up till we
ought 'a' called a plumber and every
body said, 'Ain't we having a fine
time?' And Jimmy glowed till I was
afraid his face would crack with the
cold and everything. Then finally,
just as Percy and I wore getting some
more lemonade, Jimmy grabbed me by
the arm.
"'Say,' he hissed, 'I've had enough
of that sissy fellow trailing after you!'
"Just as I drew away, indignant like
-for nobody can boss me even if it is
Jimmy-Percy sort of fell against the
lemonade bowl and it tipped over and
soaked Jimmy and me. I'd hate to
think it of Percy, but I can't see how
he could have upset that bowl without
planning it.
"Well, of course, Jimmy and I had
to go home then, and my! the lan
guage thnz man used was something
wonderful! I didn't see how there
could be any more language in the
world, but I found there was, for when
we started to get off the street car
Jimmy found his duck trousers that
had got soaked with lemonade were
frozen to the seat. The conductor
wouldn't hold the car while Jimmy
tore them loose! He said there were
no rules 'n' regu?utions requiring a con
ductor to delay service just because
a passenger got frozen to the seat.
"By the time we got home my dimi
ty dress skirt was so frozen with
lemonade that it rattled like tin, and
when I hit the doorpost it cracked and
ruined itself. I s'pose I must 'a' got
my gold somehow during the eve
"It looks that way," agreed the girl
at the enamelware counter.
Scared to Go Home.
"Do I look like a milkman?" asked
a tango dancer of a patron, as he was
leaving his temple of tango about four
o'clock this morning. "Why, no;
what an idea," was the response.
"Well, I'm glad of it," said the tan
goist. "My wife took a shot at a milk
man the other morning, and I'm kind
of skittish about going home at this
hour. Best little woman in the world
you know, but hasty, and I'd regret
any mistake in my case,"

Supexinlrndinl of Men
Moody Bible Institute. Chicago
TEXT-"And Galllo cured for none of
those things." Acts 18:17.
In dealing
with young men
one frequently
meets this ex
cuse, "The fel
lows I go with
don't care tor this
sort of thing."
I. Would it not
?o batter tor thea
if they did? And
how do you know
but that your ex
ample might lead
them to some se
rious thinking?
Quite likely they
are in the same
condition that you are-conscious that
they ought to be Christians, but hold
ing back for fear of what others will
say. What those fellows need is a
?ood. healthy jar; something which'
will show them what cowards they
are. and the nobility and manliness
of fellowing one's convictions.
The Bible says that men are like
sheep. One peculiarity of sheep is
their lack of independence; they are
great imitators: if one goes over the
wall, the whole flock goes tumbling
after him. You may lay hold of their
head or their heels, but they will go
and you will go, too, unless you let
Voung men are much the .same.
They go in droves; they think and
act as "their leader does; if he buys
a certain style of hat or neck wear,
the others do the same; if one goes
to college, many others follow.
Now, bearing in mind this peculiar
ity of human nature, why should
you not take advantage of it, and
try to lead your associates in the
right direction, instead of following
them in the wrong direction? Why
should you not be the Moses who leads
them out of Egypt into the Promised
Land? "Who knoweth whether thou
art not come to the kingdom for such
a time as this?"
A student in Yale college once went
to New Britain, Conn., to take the
place of principal in the high school
for a short time. He was told by his
associate teacher that it was the cus
tom to open the school with Scripture
reading and prayer. Though he was
not a Christian, be felt that he must
comply with the custom and he did
so. After a few days he said to his
associates, "I feel that I am playing
the part of a hypocrite and I hardly
know what to do. My class at Yale
holds its class prayer meeting to
morrow night, and I haye half a mind
to go down and tell them what a pre
dicament I am in, and ask them to
pray for me." His assistant urged him
to go, and offered to open the school
for him the next morning. He went,
told his story in a manly way, was
converted, and as a result a revival
sprung up in which 80 students in
Yale college were led to Christ.
II. Whether your companions fol
low your example or not, you cannot
afford to follow theirs. The issue is
too great. You cannot afford to stifle
your convictions, and jeopardize your
soul because they do. Every man
must give an account of himself unto
Christ, and their neglect of duty will
not justify yours. What you need is
to declare your independence, and not
be kept from the nobler life and larger
liberty of the Gospel by a lot of "fel
Strike out for yourself. Let them
see that there is one person in that
crowd who has the courage of his
convictions, and who is not afraid of
what others may say. Do not wan
der into the wilderness of sin any
longer simply because others do.
III. Whether the others follow you
or not, they will certainly have more
respect for you. A young soldier who
had just enlisted found that he was
the only Christian in his tent, it was
not an easy thing to kneel and pray
before the others, but he did it. At
once they began to laugh and make
disagreeable remarks, and at times
they threw shoes at him. The yoimg
man was troubled and knew not
what to do. Finally he went to the
chaplain of the regiment and asked
his advice. The chaplain told him
that under the circumstances he
thought it would be justifiable for him ?
to say his prayers in silence after he j
had retired. Meeting him a few days
after the chaplain inquired how he
was geting on. "Well, chaplain, I fol
lowed your advice for a night or two,
but I felt so mean that I could not do
it anty longer, and so I went back to
the old way of kneeling by my bed
side, and do you know, chaplain, some
of the boys have been converted, and
now we have a prayer meeting in the
tent every night"
IV. Before you decide this question
take one good look at' "the fellows,"
and another at Calvary. Ask yourself
which has done the most for you,
and which is most worthy of your love
and loyalty. There ia only one who
has died for you, only one who can
forgive your sins, only one who can
satisfy every craving cf your heart
That one is Jesus Christ, the only
leader in this world whom it is per
fectly safe to follow.
j Weeded Explanation.
In an English, police court an officer
was giving evidence against a woman
accused of robbing a pawnbroker, and
assured the magistrate that, on his
telling the prisoner the charge on
which he had taken her, she "turned
from him and swallowed a bed-tick,
a pair of corsets, two brass candle
sticks, a smoothing-iron", and a bel
lows!" "Nonsense! Have you lost
your senses?" said the magistrate.
"Your worship, 'tis the tickets for
them, I mean, she swallowed."
Sexton in Hard Luck.
One of the healthiest localities in
Australia, it is estimated is Lithgow,
New South Wales, and this has been
confirmed by the action of the local
sexton, who has cqmplained to the
cemetery trustees that, owing to the
few deaths, he is unable to make a
living. He applied for increased sal
ary, stating that since he took over
the position he has only averaged $5
per week, and could not live on that

The capital invested in Swiss hotel?,
according to the latest figures,
amounts to over $200,000,000, while thc
average annual gross profits are esti
mated at $50,000,000. The report shows
tha? a number of the biggest hotels
are controlled by large companies,
which form a kind of trust, in which
there is a large proportion of foreign
capital invested. There are 43,000 ho

whom are very well paid.
Fair Warning.
A brazen-lunged newsboy in a
western city has been having a good
deal of fun at the expense of the
wearers of freakish skirts. His meth
od has the simplicity of genius. As
his victim goes by she is startled to
hear a loud cry: "Git out of town!"
Her indignant look brings a repetition
ot the cry, with a slight addition
which does not altogether propitiate
her: "Git out of town-paipers!"
