Following Is a recent sermon I
delivered by Ensign Pitt of the
"But be ye doers of the Word
and not hearers only." Jesus.
About the best interpretation
Christianity can have- is the life
we live. Thoughts, words, actions.
yes, but mostly actions, or the
things we do. Orto put it terse
ly, one might say that Christian
ity is service, simply because all
of Christ's life can be summarized
or summed up,-in that one mean
ingful word. His mission was to
serve, and that he did with whole
hearted zeal to the last step of
His life's journey and the last
drop of His blood. We read not
of His having been linked up with
any creed or dogmatic teaching of
His day only that He observed
the commandments handed down
in the ancient Mosaic law; but we
do know, however, that the Son
of God' went about doing good to
all, irrespective of who it was to
whom the good was done. Christ
gave a new interpretation to the
law of Moses when, condensing It
into one short but matchless state
ment, he commanded to "love the
Lord, thy God, with an thy heart,
and' thy neighbor ,as thyself." The
Ten Commandments still hold, but
how well are they all embodied in
that one simple command of the
Lord Jesus. For if we sincerely
try to love our neighbor as our
selves, we will certainly "not seek
to do any of those things against
which we are enjoined by the
Jesus saw that the people of
His time were governed or con
trolled too much by law and too
little by love, and so He set Him
self to the task of teaching them
the law of love in terms of prac
tical service, for to love is to serve.
Moreover,' He gave -them the Gold
en Rule (Matt. 7:12), and then
consistently conformed to it in His
own life. Whoever makes that
simple teaching the rule of his life
has truly found Christianity.
It is significant to note that the
lives of Christ's closest followers.
His disciples, were dedicated in
service to others Peter; James,
John, and. others of whom we have
record. Indeed, that tiey should
tave become servants of all was
but a natural sequence to their
calling by the Galilean; He could
have no other purpose in choosing
them than that they, should .per?
pctuate the ministry already be
gun; the ministry of service to
God and man alike. Imbued with
the spirit of their lowly Master, it
was possible for these humble men
to go about doing good to all just
as it is likewise possible for' us to
do the same today.
What the present world has
need of Is more of this law of
love, in divinely directed service.
We have enough other laws, God
knows enough creeds, dogmas,
or doctrines to 'save a world, if
such things could save It. But
the world, despite all these, is yet
i long ways .from being in that
ttate which might liken it unto
the kingdom of heaven, where

"The Vanishing American,"
adapted for the screen by Lucien

is more romantic, more interest

the, story of the first Americans

of the Red Man in his last stand
