In the year of 1!MM, when our nallon

this friend of the aged minister, was
making an eloquent appeal on liehulf

Caiiada, u liiycarold girl was grefitly
pleased at l.eing asked lo lie one
among others lo servo refreshments
at a fashionable gathering In the homo
of a very wealthy gentleman. The
lirst part of the evening was a round
of pleasure, hut when I lie lime came
for the refreshments, she found thai
she was expected lo serve wine lo Ihe
gnosis, and all the pleasure died for
her in a moment, she knew Ihat Hod
had hidden His children lo reprove
the works of darkness, and Ihat it was
just as wrong lo drink wine in the
Inline of the millionaire as in the low

hi art heat fast and her cheeks grow

straight lo th(! lady of Ihe house and
told her Ihat she coiiid not serve wine,
because she did not think if was right.
Wo do not know what, the immediate
result was, hut We do know that she
vas standing "fast in Ihe faith,' and
can In no case lose her reward.

came 1'aul the Christian. In the
eleventh chapter of Acts wo tire told
that the disciples were scattered

les themselves were left undisturb

they had fallh in (iod and turned to
Him. They ceased not lo pray and
oven far into the night when others
were fast asleep their anxious peti
tions were ascending to Iii 111 who
said. "Ask an'l .ve shall receive." Hod
heard their cry and sent His angel
who oo-ed the chains from Peter,
opened the prison doors, led them
out Into Ihl? street and disappeared.
When Hie Apostle realized that Hod
had overcome the power of his ene
mies and set him free, be sought nt
once the faithful hand which was vet
In prayer, lo tell them of the glad
good news of Ms miraculous ilellver

trust, lie is iniiiuereii,, mien lining-
onlstic to it. The new evangelism is
a return to the very old method of
Jesus Christ and the nposlles. It
means personal work. The preacher
is only a lender, (he members are all
personal soul-winners. It Is bringing
tho individual Christian fice to face,
hand to hand and hoar to heart with
the unsaved. The now evangelism
emphasizes personal effort in soul
winning. Kach member is 10 carry
the gospel to his neighbor and urge
him to receive Christ. It is tho win
one method. This was Paul's moth

t, . ,,, ,., ,- .. Tpsi.1.
! niont Christ preached several of his
'greatest sermons lo one auditor. All
1 believers should be soul-winners.
There are five reasons why I urge a
return to this old way.
I 1. It will raise the tone of spirit
ual life in our churches. No Christ
ian ever became spiritually strong by
hearing good preaching. Many of
our people have dried up on good
preaching. It is receiving and then
'giving out tint builds up. The sea
of Calilee receives the Jordan and
'gives it out again. This keeps it
frsl1 am1 fu" "f fisM- Tnp IVl"1 S,'a
receives the .Ionian anil does not
give it out, and it is dead a id deso
late. So the Christian who gives Ihe
gospel to others in an earnest heart
lo heart way, will become rich in
spiritual life.
It requires more con
sistont living to make an
earnest ap-
I' ' ",r 'l'"".' ''V " Christ-j
than if does tl. send in a check

to Hi
'not fewer givers of nionev. but more
livers of men. It will quicken the
spiritual life of any christian to make

great truth, Unit wo want all men to

condition lu the world.
4. Tills new emphasis on personal
the people to come to church is to
go after them. It is not so much tho
churaeter of preaching that arouses
them, as the character of welcome
they meet. They will come If we let
them understand that we are really
anxious to have them.
5. This personal work, by the mem-
1 hers of the church will greatly In
crease the number of souls saved.
We need more people directly en
gaged in an effort to win men to
Christ, and then we shall see larger
numbers come to Christ.
Thomas Chalmers a little over fif
ty years ago in Edinburgh, Scotland,
started a mission in West Tort, a
very wretched portion of the city.
He sent out Christian laymen from
house to house to Invite the people
to church, to get the children for
Sunday school, and to relieve the dis
tressed. Today St. John's church is
a self-sustaining parish, the result of
this effort. This was among a peo
ple half of whom were paupers, and
most of whom were totally Iguorant
and criminal. He demonstrated that
personal work from house to house
by laymen is the real solution of the
problem of city evangelization. The
people will respond to this kind of
effort. To build churches, and wait
for the people to come is not the
method jf tho apostles. Christ said
for us to go out into the streets and
lanes of the city and bring in the
people. We want men and women
to do this character of work. Lot
every member realize that he is ex
pected to bo a witness for Christ.
This is the new evangelism, hut yet
as old as the New Testament,

"Go Ye Into All the World and
Preach the Gospel to' Every
Creature." "And the Common
People Heard Him Gladly"
A large congregation assembled in
the First Methodist church Sunday
morning anil listened with evident in
terest to a sermon delivered by too
pastor on the subject: "Tho Institu
tional Church," after which tho Sac
rament of the Lord's Supper was ad
ministered to a host of participants.
ilr. Godhey road for his text the
fifteenth verso of tho sixteenth chap
ter of Mark: "(io Ye Into All the
World and Preach tho gospel to
Every Creature." Also Mark 12:27.
"And the Common People Heard Him
The sermon is in subslaneo is as
.lesus did not exaelly follow the cus
tomary method of teaching and did
not confine himstlf to the place lu
which the teaching was accustomed
to he done. Ho attended tho ser
vices of the sanctuary on tho Sab
bath find taught those who board him
to regard lie authority of the law and
tho prophets, and to reverence tho
house of His Father, and on one oc
casion he went into the temple and
drove out the money changers and
turned over their tables, declaring
in the language of the Scripture:
"It ! written that my house shall be
called a house of prayer, but ye havo
made !l a den of thieves." There
lore any disregard for tho temple and
its sanctity has no sanction from tho
Savior of men. Tho church Is right,
therefore, in dedicating n sanctuary
for the worship only, and keeping out
money changers and every desecra
tion from the place.
Itnt there are demands upon the
church that make necessary that
provision shall be made to meet new
and present conditions, and if we are
to "heal the sick, raise the dead,
cleanse the leper and cast out devils."
we must be aide to nroviilo the ron
eliiions that make this possible. Tho
common people heard Jesus gladly be
cause .lesus met the wants of the
common people when they found they
had a friend to whom they conbl
bring their sieU. and whose wonts
brought cheer to their hearts thoy
flocked to hear him and everywhere
be left not only spirlutnl. but. tem
poral blessings behind him. No won
der that they published it every
where when thoy were healed. Th
appreciation of benefits received
made them friends who could be re
lied upon to speak ni;.nv woids of
e'linnieiidatioii f n V in1 teacher
who bad done sUch lasling jjood.
The church has perhaps missed this
lesson by making "spiritual r.pplica
mti" of the lesson of a plivsical
healing which Christ accomplished.
