Luke 13:10-17; 14:1-6—March 15. “The Sabbath irojr matte for man, and not man for the Nabbath.”—JUark S:t7. TF TCH confusion prevails re IVI spcctlnj? the Sabluitb. Few I ^ JL realise that God’s arrunge / meutH with Jesus* followers are totally different from those which He made with Natural Israel under the Law Covenant. Everything under that Covenant contained a valuable lesson for Christians; but to mistake type for antitype is to confuse our minds and to miss the force of the antitype. There was no Sabbath before the Jewish Law, except that Cod rested on the seventh great Day of the Creative Week. Enoch. Abraham, and others pleasing to God, knew nothing about the Sabbath, even as they knew noth ing about the Atonement Day sacrifices or other matters appertaining to'"Isra el’s law Covenant Israel a House ef Servants—the Church a House ef Sons. Israel was a House of Servants, un der Moses; but the Church Is a House of Sons, under Christ (Hebrews 3: 1-6.) God’s method of dealing with the \ /M\: uuunc vi orrvuuin ▼ery properly differ ed from His meth od with the House 1 of Sons. Commands . are given servants • without explanation why or wherefore. But to the true t Christian the Heav enly Father makes known His pur- Confusion on the poses, that His sons Nobbath Day. may sympathetically enter into those plans, by joyful obedience to the ex tent of self-sacrifice. Jesus uud the Apostles were Jews, ami were under the (,aw Covenant until Jesus by His death became “the end of the Law for righteousness to every one that believetk.” Since then Jestis’ followers are in no sense bound by the Jewish Law. In dealing with the House of Sons God, through the Hoad of that House, lias set up a new Law, which means much more than Moses* Ijiw was understood to signify. It Is the Law of Ix>ve. Jesus said: “A new commandment I give you. That ye love one another ns I have loved you." Early in the Gospel Dispensation Jesus’ followers began to meet on the first day of the week. Jesus arose from the dead on that day, and appear ed several times to His followers. Ap parently it became a custom amongst the disciples to fellowship on that day. because of their desire to remember the Master. Quite probably they kept the Sabbath as well, for n time. Evi dently they had difficulty in realizing how completely they had passed from the domination of Moses* Law to be under the Headship of Jesus. To Do Good on tha Sabbath. Jesus did many of His miracles on the Sabbath, partly no doubt to em phasize the fact that the Great Sab bath, the seventh thousand-year Day of earth’s history, will be the time of His Kingdom, in which mankind will be privileged to be healed from sin. sorrow and pain, and brought to the full perfection of human nature, lost in Eden nnd redeemed at Calvary. Since Jesus was a Jew, and there fore bound by the Jewish Law, He could do nothing contrary to that Law. But He corrected certain misapprehen sions of the Law, which had crept in through the teachings of the Doctors of the Law nnd the Pharisees. For show these exaggerated the letter of the Law in some respects, while en tirely ignoring its spirit. In various ways they made God’s Law appear unreasonable; and while particular in inconsiderable's trifles, they set aside the much more weighty matters of Justice, love and mercy. In today’s lesson, we have two in stances of healing on the Sabbath. Jesus healed a woman who bad been bowed down for eighteen years with an infirmity. But the ruler of the synagogue was Indignant, and mi id to the people. There nre six days in which you can coine and he heal ed, rather thnu on the Sabbath. This was Intended as a special rebuke to Jesus, intimating that He violated the Law. But the fiord's reply put His Tkrukino Wheal ^adversaries to he Fnhbath. ana me. The other case waa that of a man troubled with drop ay. Jeans, knowing their mental atti tude, discussed the subject In advance, asking the Doctors of the I>aw and the Tharhecs, “Is It lawful to heal on the Babbntb, or not?" They made no an swer. Then He healed the sick man, and Inquired of the critics. “Which of you having an ass or an ox fall Into a pit would not straightway draw him out on n Sabbath day?** They could not answer. A prof>er understanding of the Sab bath. the rest which Ood has provided for His people, D n great blessing—a perpetual Joy. Without regard to which «lay, the Apostle suggests thnt we forsake not the assembling of our selves together, as the manner of some Is; and so much the more as we see the glorious Day of Messiah's King dom approaching, and the shadows of darkness.

GhronlG Stomach Trouble Gured. There is nothing more discouraging than a chronic disorder of the stomach. Is it not surprising that men suffer for years with such au ailment when a per manent care is within their reach and may be had for a trifle? “About one year ago,” says P. H.
