The Glory of
^ the Nazarene Rev. William E. Tlbroe. D. D., McCabe Memorial Church. Chicago And we beheld his glory.—John 1:14. • HAT a citizen of the earth some 19 centuries ago. a certain Syrian Jew, one Je V's>. sus of Nazareth, lived a life / that was a life of glory, is £ the thing that is here said. Other things are said, but our matter of talk is this. It is not a theological vision, but a plain record, “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory." Not that to the son of Zebedee theo logical vision was wanting. To him the historic Jesus of his generation was an eternal, ineffable something known as the Word of God. “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God," and “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” As speech is a revealing, a message from the soul in visible. so the Christ was a word from God. Further, this Christ was with John the potent universal Creator. “All things were made by him and without him was not made anything that was made.” This same Creator and Word was also Life and Light. "In him was life and the life was the light of men.” There may be exist ence without light, but existence with out . life there is not, and that new thrilling thing, the key of being, the light of the world, and the secret of destiny, is in the Christ. Surely the invisible and ever-abiding Jesus shone zenith high in the eyes of John and there was theological vision in plenty. But it was this vision become flesh and dwelling among us that was the immediate concern. One too poor for where to lay his head; barren of so cial prestige, without culture of the schools, writing no books, showing scant regard for organism or institu tions, setting the sword into its sheath, beggaring himself deliberately of every arm of power in honor with the ages, and yet so mighty as to bend and rock the earth with his tread, making men suspect him noth ing less than God tvas a spectacle un speakable for a Galilean fisherman. Fifty years and more he remembers what his eyes have seen and only the greatest words under the sun and stars are able to tell his tale. “And we beheld his glory.” Christ Supreme. The glory of the Christ life may be seen earliest, possibly, in that it is the only one of its kind. It was a unique life. Jesus Christ was one, “only be gotten.” In all the ages he has no fellow. When Napoleon said, "No one is like him,” he had this vision. It is of the genius of greatness to carve a niche for itself, to fly in its own or bit, to evermore walk lonely. Moses, Aristotle, Caesar, Shakespeare are memories of the forgotten and live among the dead. So there was never another like the Son of Mary. Rev erence is born of respect and worship of the Christ may well begin by find ing him among the solitary few. His tory can neither be written nor read without mention of his name. Jesus of Nazareth is even now Jesus of the planet. But the glory of the Christ is unique, especially in being such a glory to the mind o'f God. Jesus is the only begotten “of the father.” A compliment of benediction gathers its music and fragrance from its source. The great of earth must read their glory, always, in a revised version. The noonday light of one generation fades in another to a smoking taper. “Call no man happy until he is dead,” i_onitonli Onlv fVio Intitr. 1 o U11 14HV I V —V “I-I- —-» » ments of the immortal stand. Tb,at the life of the Christ is & glory with the Eternal is at once a patent of worth and a call to prayer. That wor ship of the historic Jesus is not rank idolatry finds its one reason here: he is in time a veritable manifestation of the eternal God. Forevermore the Al mighty Father exists in some fashion as a Kevealer and in this fashion never repeats himself. “In the begin ning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” “The same was in the beginning with God.” Like the shock of earthquake or the rising of the sun this divine Word breaks into human history as Jesus of Nazareth and passes on, and very rightly men tarry in reverence at hie feet. That human soul which sees in Christ a unique, solitary, unshar able revealing of God alone may wor ship him. He may arise, respect, fol low, but to bend the knee and say prayers he must see God. That there is none other name under heaven or given among men: that there is but one Lord, one faith, one baptism, we adore the Christ. “And we beheld his glory.” Must Accept Divinity. This leads me naturally to say that the glory of the Christ life is seen also in its transcendence. It is a bi ography evermore parting from men and carried out of their vision. “The darkness comprehended it not.” "The world knew him not.” “His own re ceived him not.” Men face the Christ Dot only with moral opposition but with mental collapse. They reject him as surely that are little as that they are wicked. Their logic falls in a heap. They walk by faith or stagger to the dust. Unless they believe on his name, receive him, are given right and power to be sons of God, are veritably born again, they never catch the glory of the Christ. A simply hu man Christ, a Christ who is not tran scendent, turns every Christian church into a heathen temple, bap tism to an empty, wicked farce, the bread and wine to symbols of a gigan tic lie and Christian people every where into the most miserable of men. At the mere suggestion that an arctic explorer, reporting a discovery of the north pole, may have deceived the world, men have gone white in astonishment and alarm. To find out that Jesus of Nazareth is only Jesus of Nazareth would be to discredit eighteen centuries of civilization, to sink the stream of modern history un derground, to learn that empires may build safely on deception as on the truth, and that the sanest, brightest hope man ever knew is the giant de spair of all the ages. t No man worships down. No maa worships at a level. To his own mind every man worships up. It may u« stick or star or beast or the vision of his dreams, but it is always and forever up. A Christ that is not above, beyond, elusive, infinite, will never re ceive sacrifices or hear prayers. He may have a virgin birth, work mir acles, rise from the dead, ascend the skies as the stairway of his home, and I need not doubt or be alarmed. I could do him reverence were he not somehow superhuman. Such a Christ may astound me, but he does not sur prise. He is the very Christ I would look for, my Master, the Lord of my life. Such is the Christ of God, the transcendent Christ. “And we beheld his glory." The record is hardly given Justice if we do not say that the glory of the Christ life is seen in that it is every where superlative. It was a glory “full of truth and grace.” “Of his full' ness have all we received." He is evermore the Unsurpassable One. When a scientist will study sun shine he runs it through a prism and confines it to the limits of his desk The thing that floods a universe does not vanish or change in two feet square. So the immortal Christ, light of the world, shut up in the short years of his Palestinian abiding, shows still the primal glories of the eternities and the Father’sv house. Does he bring grace and truth to the earth? He is "full of grace and truth.” Does he speak with men? "Never man spake like this man." Is he accused of wrong? “I find no fault in this man.” Does he feed the multitude from a lunch box? They gather of the fragments by the bas ketful. Does he heal the sick? It is not a matter of visits, mumbling and income, but men take up their bed and walk. Is there an hour when speecn is tolly' He answers not a word and the mighty of the earth marvel. Finally, with his life at his back and his face to the sky he cries in triumph, “It is finished,” and meets the Eternal with his record. Always and everywhere he is the superlative Christ. Of course the Christ might have done very differently. Revealing truth, he mig'ht have told us wholesale the minds of men, the discoveries of the ages and the secrets of destiny. Bringing the grace of God. he could have driven poverty, sickness, sin and death from under the sun. Command ing righteousness in the earth, he might have sent the spirits of the dead to enforce his will. Surely he might have done differently; but be ing the superlative Christ he could not supposedly have done better. The alarming message of Jesus is that he is the last and farthest reach of the mind and hand of God. To go far ther would be to do worse, to be less wise and loving, to set weakness in the seat of power and to furnish the earth at last the thing it is hungry for, a real excuse for sin. A God who might have done more and better for his children and withheld his hand would be dumb on his own judgment day. The superlative Christ is the exhaustion of divinity for the good of men. Unique, transcendent, unsur passable, “the same yesterday, to-day and forever,” we behold his glory.— Northwestern Christian Advocate. IS CHRISTS REAL MESSAGE “Love and Live for Others" the Key note of All the Teachings of the Master. “By love serve one another.”—Gal. 5:13. One of the wisest of the ancient Greeks declared that the free man was he who existed for himself and not, like a slave, for the sake of an other. How sharply this contrasts with the essential teachings of the world’s greatest religious leader; they who find the full and free life must learn to live, not for themselves, but for others. lUn linvn Vi Ann f at ontitnrine Un T*-t' 1 n rr the simple teachings of the prophet of Nazareth under survivals of ancient superstitions and masses of philosoph ical sutlety and speculation. Now when his real message is spoken it sounds so strange we call it a new re ligion. The doctrine that the, greatest need of the universe is that men should love one another and live for one another has been neglected so long that it appears to be wholljt new. Your historians point to this and your philosophers to that as the es sential article of Christian faith, but it is neither in historical records nor in theological formulas. The one thing that marks and makes the true man in religion is that he has learned that life is just the chance to love and to give life away. His faith is right who is right with his fellows. Earthly Cross-Bearing. A certain undertone of sadness is recognized in the words of that marvel ous compound of cynicism and music, the book of Ecclesiastes: “The clouds return after the rain.” The allusion to the “seventh” trouble that comes alter the deliverance from the “sixth,” as cited in Job, has the same under tone. All true seers and singers have this undertone. That It will be parted with inside the gates of that city of God where sin is unknown Is certain. The inevitability of earthly cross-bear ing, with the certainty of deliverance that is complete—wre will accept the first as it comes; we will claim the second and be ready for it when the glad day shall arrive. The Divine Voice. All through history the divine voice that spoke to Samuel has been speak ing to human hearts everywhere. We of to-day wonder why it is that a poem or a song or a phrase lodges in the memory and clings tenaciously, making its appeal to our hearts. We wonder why a tender recollection out of the past should come to us in a moment of sore temptation, lending its strength to our weakened resolution. God speaks to us thus, in many ways, sometimes audibly, sometimes through a beautiful life, a beautiful flower, a strain of music, or a whisper of mem ory, but always it is the Father’s love ing call.

Suggestion and Practical Thought. We now come to some of the dis tinguishing marks of Matthew’s pre sentation of the life of our Lord, and to distinct eras in the work of Jesus. The Beatitudes. The Text of the Sermon, with the Inspiration, the Motor Power, to Living in Accordance with Them. 1. And seeing the multitudes, de scribed In v. 25 above. "He went up.” From the leyel place on the mountain (Luke G: 12, 17), where the people were gathered, to a slight elevation, from which he could more easily be seen and heard by them. “His disci ples came unto him,” the twelve he had just chosen. The Beatitudes are the Gate Beau tiful to the Temple of Holiness. First Beatitude—-V. 3. 1. Who are the poor in spirit? "Blessed are the poor in spirit.” This is not poverty of mental faculties and gifts. It is no mean, abject feeling; no Uriah Heep humbleness, no want of self-respect, no apologizing for one's existence, no cringing before man. Nor is it mere poverty in world ly goods, though that often leads to this spirit. But one may be poor and proud. 2. How does the blessing grow out of this spirit? Because it is the same spirit that is required when we are told that we must become as little children if we would enter into the kingdom; willing and anxious to learn, to ask, to seek, which is the spirit which stands back of all the magnificent achievements of modern science, which made Newton feel that he was a child gathering pebbles on the shore of the vast ocean of truth. 3. What is the blessing? “For theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.” They be long to that kingdom, they are ruled by its laws and principles, have en tered the door through which they can reach the heavenly character, and all that belongs to the kingdom. 4. What part has this Beatitude in forming the perfect man, and hence the perfect world? It is the spirit and atmosphere in which all virtues flourish. Second Beatitude.—V. 4. 1. Who are described by the term they that mourn? “The mourners whom Christ pronounces 'blessed’ are those who are poor in spirit.”— Maclaren. 2. Why are those that mourn blessed? “For they shall be com forted.” God comforts those who are mourn ing on account of sickness, sorrows, troubles and losses, by causing them to work “for us more and more ex ceedingly an eternal weight of glory” (2 Cor. 4:17). 3. How do these blessings grow out of the mourning? Because to sin ful beings there seems to be no other way. There is no way to the bless ings of forgiven sin save by the mourning that leads to repentance. 4. This is also the answer to the question What part has this Beati tude in making the perfect man and the perfect world? “A high ideal of life lies beneath all. No man is beg gared who has a vision of man’s chief end and chief good.”—Exp. Greek Test. «- T T it.' V> i.'i..^ n tf. iiun iO U1IO Jyv/UL»I.U«V in the life of Christ? The consola tion that came to him after the prayer in Gethsemane. His whole life is ex pressed in Heb. 12:2. Third Beatitude.—V. 5. 1. Who are the meek that shall in herit the earth? Meekness is a dispo sition of the soul in reference to the wrongs, or seeming wrongs, which come to us from others. Its basis Is the control of all earthly tempers by the spirit. 2. What is the reward of the meek? “They shall inherit the earth” from their king. They do not earn it, but inherit it. Fourth Beatitude.—V. 6. 1. Who are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness? Hunger and thirst express the most intense of all desires. In this Beatitude are included those who have this intense desire to be good, to be righteous; everything else —success, riches, pleasure, knowledge —must be as nothing in comparison with righteousness. 2. What is their reward. ‘"/hey shall be filled” with the righteousness they desire. 3. What is the connection between the hungering and its reward? Life is made up of a series of desires and their satisfaction. The more desires we have, and the nobler they are, and the intenser, the larger is our being. It is this that distinguishes between a civilized and a savage life. Fifth Beatitude.—V. 7. 1. Who are described as the merci ful? Mercy is near of kin to love. It is love to the needy, the troubled, the sinful, even those who have wronged us. It relieves spiritual want and darkness as well as temporal; would give the Gospel to the heathen as well as food to the hungry. 2. What is their reward? “For they shall obtain mercy.” From man and from God. Like begets like. 3. How was this illustrated by Christ? Christ’s coming to save men, his miracles of mercy, his beginning, his death on the cross. Sixth Beatitude.—V. 8. 1. What is it to be pure in heart? Real purity “is in the heart, the seat of thought, desire, motive, not in the outward act.” 2. What blessing comes to the pure In heart? “For they shall see God.” Seventh Beatitude.—-V. 9. 1. Who are Included In the term peacemakers? “Peacemakers are cre ated by having passed through all the previous experiences which the pre ceding verses bring out.” . .... ■■ —3C.-S- - A GOOD COUGH MIXTURE.

Although the survey of the past year’s anti-tuberculosis work shows that much has been done, the reports from all parts of the country indicate that this year the amount of money to be expended, and the actual number of patients that will be treated will be more than double that of the past year. For instance, special appropria tions have been made in the various municipalities for next year’s anti tuberculosis work, aggregating $3,976, 500. In addition to these appropria tions over $4,000,000 has been set aside by the different state legisla- i tures for the campaign against tuber- j culosis this year. Besides these sums, a large number of the present exist ing institutions and associations are planning enlargements of their work, and new organizations are being formed daily. She Wants a Bonnet.
