"Josus had -risen and gone out of
their lifo. The past years had
meant for tho disciple the compan
ionship of tho man of Nazareth;
they had been days of schooling and
of education, and tho disciples had
advanced by leaps and bounds. Hon
or had been conferred on Peter: ho
had eaten and lived with Jesus. In
tho last fow days ho- had seen tho
risen Christ, and now ho thought his
life finished, and wished to go back
to his lowly labors, where he could
think of tho things ho had seen.
"Christ, however, thought differ
ently. Potor needed the 'call to ser
vice,' and after that tho 'bestowal
of power.' Had ho gone back ho
would have been a better fisherman,
but ho would have never been the
apostlo whom tho world now hon
ors. God had a larger mission for
Peter and ho called him.
"Tho Christian Endeavor move
ment has gone forward by leaps and
bounds in tho past few years and It
It is to be a power in the affairs of
mankind and In tho shaping of hu
man action it must be like Peter cf
old: must havo a call to service, and
a bestowal of power.
"Do you wish tho power for good?
Then you muBt bo willing to pay tho
costB. It Is said In The Acts that
fire descended on the apostles, nnd
it is a good figure, for the bestowal
of power Is a serious thing, nnd we
must bo ready to pay the costs, for
fire burns, and the bestowal of the
Holy Ghost moans burning out tho
dross and tho dregs from our lives.
"Thcso aro three steps In the
Christian lifo: the dally companion

the college of Christian lire?
"The vlBion of tho prophet sug
costs tho field to which tho Christ
inn Endeavor is called by God. Tho
most pathetic thing of all, is that
the golden city which the prophet
saw descending from the heavens
had boon pushed back from earth.
Through tho medieval days and to
the present time, the longing has
been for a futuro life, a heaven to
come after death. But the story of
tho prophet was misread. He saw
