In com parison he showed how that we, of the nresent day, may be fully alive to the possibilities ot making a success of life in the financial world, or even in a moral sense, and that the spiritual life may be still dead; tbat ye must have the spiritual birth ere you could real ize the full significance of the love of God; that only then was a man a successful man and a true Christ* dan after the receiving of the spiritual birth; that a great many were content to drift along with he tide of life and be satisfied in a constant attendance at church and in tbo giving of a small pot ion in a financial way; that this <s not all was the point he endeav ■red to impress hij hearers; that we all have a great responsibility tnd should do as the Lord com - manded Lazuras “come forth” from the sins of the body and ac cept the “life triumphant” which means spiritual life.
