acle was performed after the Cru
cifixion cf Jesus Christ; he also
spoke of the great spiritual awak
enings in Christ’s time. 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.
