The negotiations re.nting to both the far east and armament limitation Is moving more slowly as the atten tion of arms delegates is passing from general policies to specific details.

PRIMARY TOFIC-Tte End of Pauls Journey, JUNIOR TOPIC-The End of a Long Journey, INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC -Paul Living In Rome, YOUNO PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC -Paul's Mlnlntry In Rome. I. The Shipwrecked Crew on Mellta (vv. 110). Through the storm they lost their hearings, and when they were safe on land they learned tlmt the Island was culled Mellta. 1. The hospitable reception of the natives (v. 2). They built a lire and made them as comfortable Ug possible :rom tne cold find the rain. 2. Paul gathering sticks for n fire (v. 3). This rs n fine picture of the world's greatest preacher and missionary not above picking up sticks for n lire. The ability ami disposition to serve nntu rally In whatever way Is the evidence of capacity for great commissions. 8. Paul bitten by n venomous ser pent (v. 8). With the sticks that Pnul gathered there was n serpent. Per baps It bad already curled Itself up for Its winter, sleep, but when the warmth of the lire aroused It It darted ut Paul and lixwl its fangs upon bis hand. The natives expected to see him fall down dead, yet be shook It off, nothing harmed, At first the natives concluded tlmt he wus an escaped murderer and that this was retributive justice being meied out to him. When Ihey suw that he was unharmed they concluded that lie was a god. ' 4. Paul liculs Publlus' father (vv. 7 10). These people ure now getting some return for their kindness.

At I'uteoU he found breth ren, at whose request he tarried seven days. At Applll-Forum and at the Three Taverns brethren from Rome met him. From Puteoll the news went before Paul's coming, and so Interested were the brethren that they came more than forty miles to meet lilm. This greatly encouraged Mm, for which he gave God thanks. No one, perhaps, ever enjoyed more close fellowship with God, nnd Jet ,o man ever en joyed more and derived more Jionollt from human fellowship than he.' 'His readiness to preacfc the gospel at Rome, which he hud expressed In the Kpistle to the Konitns, written front Corinth about three years befor was now realized. He w-us treated with great leniency at lUune, for lie was allowed to hire n house there and live alone except thut the soldier that re mained his guard was constantly with him. Itelng chained to a soldier was rather Irksome, but jet it gave him a chance to preach t the soldiers which lie could not have hod nny other way. He rejoiced In whatever cl rumstaiiees, Just so the gospel wus preuched. III. Paul's Ministry in Rome (vv. 17-31). 1. His conference with the leading Jews (vv. 17-22). He did not, as usuul, wult for the Snbbeth day to speak to the Jews. He only allowed one day for rest. Ills object was to have a fair understanding with them. When they came he endeavored to conciliate them. He told them that, though he came as a prisoner, he was not a criminal. Though his own countrymen had so sought his life, be did not come with an accusation against them. The result of this Inter view was that the Jews cautiously took neutral ground, but expressed a desire to hear what Paul could say In defense of a sect ahich was every where spoken against. The fact that this sect was spoken against Is no evi dence that It was wrong. Many times a thing may be wrong In men's minds, because their Judgments are biased. If a thing Is right In the sight of God It matters not what men think about It. 2, Paul expounding the kingdom of God and persuading concerning Jesus (vv. 23-31). He pointed out a real kingdom the Messianic Kingdom with Jesus as the King. The Kingdom to Paul meant a definite reign of a defi nite person, not simply an Improved state of society. This he showed from the Scriptures. Be went through the Old Testament, carefully showing this to be in harmony with the teaching ot the law and the prophets. This was the method his Master had used (Luke 24:27). His exposition lasted from morning till evening a rather long sermon. Fer Selg-Preeervatlon, For self-preservuHon and self-possession, for the renewal of our purpose In life, for a fair estimate of its various interests, for , calmness and strength of mind, we need to rise at times above the ways ot this world, and to remember what we are, whom we serve, whither we are called. And It Is In this that the right use of Sunday may help us far more than we fancy. For It is by quiet thought in the realization of God's presence, and by prayer and worship, that we must regain and deepen this remembrance; It Is by the Holy Eucharist that God Is ever ready to bear It into our hearts, and make it tell on all our ways.
