(Continued from second pagre.) ber of people will meet with the same disappointment. What is our own righteousness? It is but as Jilthy rag-s. It is the engaging in the same foolish business in which our first parents engaged, of the making of aprons by sewing fig leaves together. What a miserable covering! T jus is the covering of self-righteousness. 2d. This will bring us very natur ally to a second defect in this man, viz: he despised others. Self-righteousness will do that every time. Those that make the greatest display about, their godliness and pioiy, ai t the most hateful toward those vho have not been so successful in hid ing their sins. See how this Pharisee looks ti'.on the publican; how he draws his clau about him for fear that the win t might blow one of the wings agaiv t this despised one, and he would be defiled. Hoav true to life in our own day. This parable was spoken for Richmond, depend upon it. It suits the conditions exactly. How many of you are looking down upon your un fortunate brother or sister who.se sins have in some way or other be come known to men, but you have been able to hide them from the eyes of men, and therefore you conclude that you are not guilty. But now you despise others who have not been so successful as you in hiding their sins. No one that knows his own wretched wicked heart, will look with a despising eye upon his unfortunate fellow being. The heart of man is deceitful above all things and des perately wicked. The Pharisee had not found that out. It is so much easier to see our neighbor than to see ourselves. But why behold the mote that is in our brother's eye, and not consider the beam that is in our own eve i 3d. You will notice that this nan was lacking the very principles that make for true piety. He prays, but he prays with himself, it does not nnsp hioh.ir than nmselr. lie tnan'-'s God only for this self-conceited, self supposed righteousness. I thank thee J God, that I am not as other men are If you ask the child whether it has heen food. it. will answer ves. If - - - 1 -' - you ask this man, he will say: I am the host man. he will sav: 1 am wavs h( afraid of the man who thinks so much of himself. It is dan gerous, and he is dangerous, you can not trust him, because he trusts too much in himself. He is proud, haughty, arrogant. He lacks the first principle of piety, viz: humility. He that exalteth himself, shall be abased but he that humbleth hinvrlf sal.' be axaltnd. 4th. Closely allied with this thought just considered is another just as important, vie: That he is c.itireiy unconscious of :he fact that he needs zvy mercy and gra?e from God. Ri lias no need to come to God. He does not thank him for gifts and blessings received. He does not :-.sk for neicy, for he has no ned of pardo-;. He h-. dnc not ..ns; wrong, according to his own opinion he is tne best man that lives. He might in deed have prayed for some gift to be given him, to see himself as others saw him. How much rather are we willing to see the condition of the poor, outcast publican, than our own deceitful, selfish, and self-righteous heart. Let us now turn our eyes upon this publican standing afar off,who would not even lift his eyes unto hea venHe is also in church today, like the Pharisee, for these two men went up into the temple. Poor fellow! It is possible that this was the first meeting he attended for a long time. He has not been a diligent church goer, we are quite sure of that. But at this time he came, for he is start ing a new life. He came to renew his covenant with his God and Father. He comes for a good purpose, for he conies to pray from the very depths of his heart. He has become truly and fully conscious of his inner self. He realizes his condition, and he is not ashamed to confess it. He manifests every sign of true repent ance. He ackonwledges his sins, he confesses the before God and in the presence of man. he hates them and forsakes them, and he trusts in God ane for mercy. This includes all the steps of true repentance and every soul must go through this process in order that his heart may be made right with God. Here is vour looking glass, dear friend, behold yourself Have you come to the Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, and implored fr mercy. God alone can pardon. and he will pardon, for the sake of his dear Son, Jesus Christ. Let me ten you that the time is coming when we will want nothing so much hr the mercy and grace of God.

There ought to be some result from our chourc-going', it ought to benefit .:s Well, some are benefitted, and home are noit. It did not do the Phar lsee any erood. lie did not cro tor that purpose. But what a change it made in the publican! Look at him 1.. av ! While yet just as deeply hum bl kK and even more so, for humility dos not depart, but constantly in creases, when grace enters into the heart, yet he lifts up his eyes unto L iven; he has a right to do so, for the blessing of pardon, which he now enjoys, came from above. I tell you says Jesus, this man, meaning the publican, went down to his house j; titled rather than the Pharisee. lie hfid met God's condition, he had c me in line with God, and God was ready Xo fulfill his promises. Picture if you can, this man in his changed cov dition. lie went down to his house what a glad meeting it must have oeen with those at home. How his face is changed! Gathering taxes had made him hard and cruel, and that ti cted the life at home, or whereev er he went. His heart was made right, and he is now a well man. Jus tified he is. Paul says, being justified by faith, we have peace with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ. He c rries home the greatest treasure fat heaven can give peace with God. Now, my dear friend, this is just what you have been wanting tbtse many years. All the means that yo.r have been trying to secure it, have not been able to give it to you You have sought it in a lifeof pleas ure, in the pursuit of the things of this world; nay, you have even sought to secure it through the ex tcnal means of the church, but you have not found peace. Everything dis aj points you. You have not sought it in the right way, in God's way. If you come as did the publican, with a humble, contrite heart, crying to God for mercy in the name of Jesus, ou will not be disappointed, and your joy and peace will be great. Just as T am, without one plea, But that thy blood was shed for me. And that thou biddest me come to thee. Lamb of God, I come! Just as I am. and waiting not To rid my soul of one dark blot To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot, 0 Lamb of God, T come. wf&ir oooo When you want a pleasant purga tive try Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets.
