Sir, wo would see Jesus. John, xll..
Tlio cast civtuo to the cradle of
Christ, tbo west en me to his cross. The
Magi and tho Greeks represent that en
llghteued religious Instinct which. dis
satisfied with that which ennuot feed
Uie soul, U able to rise above previous
educatlou aud prejudice and seek the
gratification of Its deepest needs and
Us highest aspirations wherever that
gratification may be found.
These who thus came to Christ stood
for that large number of Greek., so
frequently alluded to, who; perceiving
the vanity of popular rellglou, turned
to something more satisfying, nnd
found In the synagogue tervlce of tho
Jews something which nppealed to Jho
cravings of that Instinct for God which
all men possess. Attaching tbemelvis
more or less to Judaism without sub
nilttlng to the religious rites necessary
to give them full standing they camn
to Jerusalem to worship the God In
whom they had como to believe. Hero
they put themselves In communication
with one of the disciples of Jesus and
request an Interview with the man
who has created so great a stir In the
Their action may well be regarded
by us as suggesting tho cry of an
enlightened religious instinct for the
Mcru curiosity may prompt such a
Now, as then. Jesus Christ Is tho
problem of the ages. He Is a person
ality that must be explained; a force
that must be accounted for. This mau,
whom millions love and no one hates,
thrusts himself before us In such a
way that life Is entirely changed for
us after wo meet him. "By whnt au
thority doest thou these things" Is a
question we must have answered for
the sake of our own peaco of mind.
"What shall I do with Jesus?" Is tho
inquiry of n soul who is confronted by
this perplexing personality, this mas
terful man. The ago of Inquiry In
which we live rinds Its curiosity baf
fled by this teacher, whose character
defies human analysis, whose truth
transcends human philosophies, nnd
whose Influence Is more living, more
personal, more powerful In. each huc
ceedlng age. Eager to wot what God
would bare us to do and be, we turn
from alf clfe to Jesus. In the hope that
at last we can find an authority upon
which we cau rest.
Appreciation may lead us to him. Be
yond mere curiosity a soul has come to
kuow euough of Jesus to make him
feel that life offers nothing better than
the study of this character and life.
Moral beauties disclose themselves In
such a way as to charm ua. We are
fascinated by, his graclousnces, sub
dued by his tenderness, moved by bis
love. We cease to wonder why It Is
that those who reject him vie with
those who accept him In laying their
tribute of admiration at his feet, and
can understand bow It Is that even an
lnndol can find the life of Jesus bis
highest theme and greatest satisfac
tion. The motives which draw us to Jesus
may be even deeper than those. There
may bs a strong personal desire on our
part for Jesus because he has wooed
and wou us. We bold him not at ami's
length; we look not at him In the spirit
of Inquiring criticism; we treat him not
as something outside of ourselves, but
as dearer to us than all the world; we
desire to take blm Into our lives, to
reign there king of love and life.
In any and erery case that which
this religious Instinct cries for Is a per
sonality. When the church, by those
ruder methods which It once used, tried
to convert the world to Christianity, It
brought Into Its fold a mass of bar
barous and unsplrltual votaries, which
left Its Impress upon church life for a
thousand years. If tho church Chris
tianized paganism, paganism In turn
paganized Christianity. As a result,
the personality of Christ was largely
lost. It Is tho glory of the present
time that the church Is swinging back
more and more to the personal Christ.
As tho din of religious strife subsides
there Is presented In now beauty and
power this one perfect penonallty. He,
and he alone, meets tho wants and
answers tho cry of the present day
man. It Is an ago of Individualism.
The needs of man aro paramount. As
tho monarch has gone down, man has
gone up. Humanity wants a Christ
who deals with ludlvldual men, and
who addresses himself to Individual
wants. In tho moment of sorrow wo
feol for tho hand of the comforter; in
the hour of louollucsn we seek our
companion; In the day of trouble wo
wnut the eounel of our friend. There
la no im In nil hlMory who satieties
us so fully ns Jesus of N'nxnroth, who.
ns "Man of Sorrows" and "Friend of
Sinners," touches human hearts to
cure, to comfort, to cleanse.
Systematic theology Is as necessary
as the boucs of n man, but those bones
must be covered with warm flesh If
we are to have n friend. Delight In
the study of Christina anatomy must
nut rob us of our Uvlug friend, tho
matchless Son of Man, Tho wenry,

By Ktr. Ckarlts W. Tlniley,
No nation Is more loyal to the Sab
bath than our own. Our foundations
wero laid In deep reverence for the
holy day. Tho Pilgrims, In 1020, half
starved, shivered In the cold, rather
than begin their work on the Sabbath.
From that day to this there has been
"American Sabbath." The necessity
for the day Is written deep In man's
physical constitution. Like a clock,
we run down. The sleep of tho night
Is not enough. Tho seventh day Is re
quired to "knit up" the raveled steeve
of care." The manual toller needs It.
The holy day Is the north star of his
deliverance from Sunday slavery. The
homo needs It. Tho highest typo of
home life demands Sabbath observ
ance. It Is no accident that the world
map of safe popular freedom Is mndo
up on tho Sabbath keeping nations.
Tho Sabbath is tho Gibraltar of law
and order. It Is simply patriotism to
keep It. . .
It Ih being attacked by Insidious foes,
Sunday malls aro wholly unnecessary.
They compel the labor of thousands of
men who are entitled to their Sabbath,
The Sunday newspaper attacks It. It
displaces what Is vastly more of vnluo
than that which It gives. It projects
tho secular spirit Into tho Sabbath. So
with Sunday amusements of all sorts.
It Is not best observed nn a day of
umuHoment. Sunday excursion and
Sunday baseball will demoralize any
town. It ought to be permanently en
joined as a violation of an express

fair to tho South American brethren
to assume that they nra totally de

from pure lore of doing evil. In somo
degree, at least, they have been under
tho Influence of American ami F.uro

years. To some extent they have In
troduced tho forms of civilization Into
their governments and social Institu
