Mr Moody said in part ;
"I want to show if I can that the
human heart is very much like the inn at
Bethlehem In which there was no room I
for the mother of the Saviour of men ou I
the day of His nativity. 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."
