SUMMER ROMANCE ENDS IN ENGAGEMENT
LESSON FOR DECEMBER 3
LcaHon Title: ""Jesus Christ, tho
First and the Last."
Lesson Text: Rev. 1
Memorize vss. 4-G.
Golden Text: "Fear not; I am the
first and the last, and the Living one;
and I was dead, and behold, I am alive
forevermorc." Rev. 1: 17-18.
I. "Fear Not."
Fear is one of the most difficult and
dangerous things to overcome. It af
fects our health, particularly our di
gestion. It affects our character, par
ticularly our initiative and action. It
affects our hopes, particularly in sor
row and in disaster.
To everybody who has any tempta
tion to fear there comes the admoni
tion of the Gospel message, reiterated
by John, the beloved disciple: "Fear
not; I am the first and the last, and
the Living one; and I was dead, and
beheld I am alive forevermore." If
you think of the prime causes of
fear, you will see how Jesus meets
every one of them. He never ignores
any fear which comes to human life.
He does not get rid of it by denying
its existence. He has no false phil
osophy to bring to the children of men.
Every man has some pet fear. It
lives with him in spite of his reason j
and of his faith, sometimes it is as
inglorious as the fear of the little child
who was found crying in the middle
of the night. His mother said to him:
"What is the matter, Charles?" '
He replied: "Iwas afraid when I
grew up that I wouldn't have money,
enough to pay my taxes!"
What right has a christian to fear? .

An engagement of international interest has just been made
known through the announcement of Mr. Chiswell D. Langhorne,
of Mirador, Greenwood, Va., that his granddaughter, Miss Nancy
Keen Perkins, is to become the wife of Mr. Henry Field, son of tho
late Marshall Field, Jr., of Chicago, 111., and one of the heirs of
the great Field fortune. The engagement of Miss Perkins to Mr.
Field follows a romance of summer life at Bar Harbor, Me., where
his brother, Mr. Marshall Field, and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Dana
Gibson have country places.
II. " The Churches of Asia."
God is not dead, I fully to your brother. Keep at your
Abraham! God is not dead!" Let us
lay hold of this great truth. God has
The book of Revelation is a message not forsaken or forgotten his world or
thru the apostle John "to the seven ihis people. He has not lost control of
churches that are in Asia." The seven lhe forces of Peace and righteousness.
churches mentioned are located at AS owning sang:
Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thya
tira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodi
cea. This is the section in which
many thousands of the Armenians
have been living, together with many
thousands of Turks. The Armenian
nation was one of the first to accept
Christianity. It is now sealing its
testimony to christian things by the
blood of countless martyrs, including
men and women and even little child
ren! He who studies world conditions
at the present time cannot fail to be
impressed with what is going on in
this old Bible territory.
Suppose John were to write a let
ter to seven churches in your section
today. What message do you think
that he would give them? Look over
the messages to the seven churches of
Asia, as given in the first three chap
ters of Revelation, and see how they
fit churches today. There is a time
liness and a modernness about the
Bible which is almost startling..
Human nature is practically the
same today that it was in John's
time. We need the same admonitions
that were necessary for people then.
The question is whether we have the
grit to apply them to ourselves and
to our own church.
III. "The Living One."
When John saw the mighty messen
ger who spoke to him, the Record says
that he "fell at his feet as one dead."
Then there came to John a great dec
laration as this messenger said, "Fear
Not; I am the Living one."
I like the declaration of the mes
senger; "I am the Living one." God
is not dead! Luther was comforted in
his time of danger and despair, when
his wife asked him point-blank: "Is
God dead?" And Sojourner Truth,
the old slave woman, helped Lincoln
"God's in his heaven,
All's right wjth the world!"
Therefore take up your daily work
with courage and hope. Speak hop-
appointed task; it is worth doing and
worth doing well. Believe, in spite
of battle and bloodshed, poverty and
pretense, woe and wickedness, be
lieve that God still lives and is work
ing out his plans. You are the serv
ant of "the Living one." Because he
lives, you shall live also! Because he
lives, his kingdom is coming. It will
conquer! Let us rejoice in the as
surance and fact of a living God!
