is not to be localized or confined in manifestation to any one
time or place or individuality. Like the Father He is spirit,
th triflTiifpstatioTi of th Cod of sDirit and like God-must be
worshipped "in spirit and in truth." "He is the first born of
many brethren," but until the life and spirit which he man
ifested are incarnated in . our lives we are none of . His, .we,
are only worshipping Him as an ideal. Before we can have
the real Christ we must seek Him and find iHimmust have
Him, in ourselves. It is there that He must corne w bless,
to purify the heart, to save from sin, to establish His.throne
and His eternal ! kingdom. We really have no Christ, no
Savior, uin til He has done this. ! -.
The above is not intended as a denial of the value of ideals

! If Sir Christopher Wren had not seen the new St. raui s
Cathedral in his mind's eye, if he had not had a mental pic
ture of its beauties both iiuthe aggregate and in detail, tne
reality would never have appeared upon the earth witn us

of men, to stimulate reverence in them and fall them to me

lived in the brain of Raphael before it became f reality, its
beauty never would have appeared in the worid or art to
delight the eye and appeal to the heart. And so t
Man must first exist for us in the ideal; without that we
should never be stimulated to strive for and finally to reacn
the reality. Only let us not forget that in religion as in ev
erything else ideals are valueless, they are but empty dreams,
until they are builded into realities; until they are actual
ized in our character and conduct ; until they, fill us with love
