JANUARY 26, 1919:
"Israel Crossing the Red Sea."
Golden Text: "Jehovah saved Israel
that day out of the hand of the
Egyptians." Exodus 14.30.
Lesson: Exodus 14.21-15.2.
I. Crossing the Red Sea.
Whether we understand and can
explain it or not, the fact remains
that when Israel was between Phar
aoh and the deep sea, "Jehovah
saved Israel that day out of the hand
of the Egyptians." A great deliver
ance is otten a more permanent and
iiuul fact as a foundation of faith
thhn some theory of the plan of sal- bier and
vation. I have often met humble There are
Christians who were surer of their
faith, because of a vital experience
of God's help, than some scholars
because the latter approached their
Christian belief largely from an in
tellectual standpoint. That is why
Hie appeal to experience is often
broader and more final than the ap
peal to scholarship.
1 am principally concerned to say
that when you come to your Red Sea
there will be a way to get across.
"All that night,
Footsore and weary, wailing
with affright
The coming day;
The while their God was
op'ning up a way
All that night,
Piling on either side waves
mountain high,
Making for them a highway
broad and dry.'
Even as they, so slow to
learn are we ' ,
To trust Him wholly when
we cannot sec,
Beyond today,
Our broad highway?"
II. "Golt Mit Uns!"
-II is said that when the fighting
was still on in Flanders, the German
soldiers called out from their
trendies to the Americans, "Gott Mit
Uns!" It was to them, doubtless, a
genuine cry I Bui the unperturbed
and rollicking Yankee hoys opposite
them lifted a Red Cross mitten on a
bayonet and shouted in reply, "We
got milieus, too!"
When is God with n nation? What
nation hns the best right to assume
that God is with it today? Is Uod a
German God? Or an Anglo Saxon?
Or a white man's God only?
God is with all humanity in a no-
more signuicant sense,
none in sore distress'
whom he cannot and will not help.
In the darkest days ot our Civil War
Governor Ogilvie, of Illinois, became
utterly depressed. For a time the
Union armies had been steadily driv
en back, and he wrote President Lin
coln that he feared all was' lost. Lin
coln sent back this telegram: "Dear
Dick: Read Exodus 14.13: Fear ye
not, stand still, and see the salva
tion of the Lord.'"
There is not only deliverance for
men from sorrow and disaster but
from sin. The "Puncher" was a
1 1 prize-fighter by profession, and it
would seem as though he had
dropped about as low as a human
being could possibly fall and still re
tain the human .semblance. So low
down the incline had he gone that
he was seriously meditating the mur
dering of his wife "for the tun of it."
He was in a saloon drinking at the
lime it happened. At the time what
happened? Well, something extra
ordinary took place that is sure. We
cannot slop to detail, but anyway, he
came out of Hie evil resort, went di
rect to his wife whom he, had mark
ed for murder, and this is what
he said, "Mollie, I am going to join
the Salvation Army." Mollie, of
course, was incredulous, but they
went to the meeting. They both
marched up to the penitents' bench.
And now may we quote from the
book? "I cannot describe my sensa
tions. The past dropped clean away
from me; it dropped like a ragged
garment. An immense weight wras
lifted from my brain. I ten light
as air. I fell clean, I felt happy. I
felt my chest swell, I cannot say
what it was. AH I know is that there
at that bench I was dismantled of all
horror and clothed afresh in new
ness and joy."
And the other stories cited in Har
old Begbie's book are quite as re
markable. They arc illustrations of
deliverance from a most incredible
captivity. There is nothing in Holy
Writ more wonderful. The change
in these poor derelicts seems simple,
but behind it is the mighty nowar of
the gospel of the Cross,' and the truth
for which that gospel stands that
the very lowest can be loved and
lifted into the liberty of the Light
of God.
