For 4,000 years the world had been looking for tho saviour of the world. The prophets of Israel had fortold His coming and had named the place of His birth. Now the angels tell the wise men where to find I Him—a babe wrappcl In swaddling clothes and lying in a mang er. 1 "Probably you are thinking that if the I people had known who He was they! would bave opened their doors to Him, I think you are mistaken. When the wise men went to Bethlehem they were asked about this baby who was born King of the Jews,and Herod sent down to Bethlehem and slew all tbe male children under « years of age, In order to be sure that tbe Infant Saviour had been put out of tbe way. You will remember that wheu he returned to Nazareth. Hie neighbors and townspeople drove Him out of the synagogue. When he went to I Jerusalem the people detested Him. The I Gospel has been preacln-d to tbe werld for 180 ' years, and yet people are reject I ing Christ. There are churches In which I Ho could not go. There are women who r ject Christ. This is hard to under stand. Why should a woman shut her heart against Christ? He has raised woman from a placeof dishonor to one of honor, and yet 1 was told by a woman, I in this house, that she could get along very well without Christ. This world Is not ready to receive Christ. If you were to put it to a popular vote He would be rejected I don't believe He would carry a ward In this city. Ho came to His own and they rejected Him. There Is on* passage in the Bible which tells ns how and when all the people went to their homes. Jesus went to Olivet, while the »copie were asleep in their houses: fihls Prince of Peace was wandering about the mountain side, asleep under its trees or beside Its cold, gray rock*. "One day He cam* to the home of Mary and Martha. Martha heard Him ln the temple, and It is said that she loved Him. She invited Him to go to her home, It Is probable that her neigh bors bated her (or this, but sh* was richly repaid when at the grave He brought her dead brother back to life. "She was the first person to hear the sweetest words that ever fell from His lips: "I am the resurrection and the life." This is the good news—the glad tidings of great joy which Jesus brought to men and women, and yet their homes are closed against Him, and they still re ject His gift of eternal life." to at the saw Af of the and d that him him ll. of naid a THE LAST SERVICE. __ i.
