HIE WllATU OF GOD,
Br ger. J, K. Ourre
He that belleveth on the Son hath
everlasting life, but he that obeyoth
not the Son shall not aee life; but tho
wrath of God abldeth on htm. John
These are precious, ami, nt the Mtno
time, awful words. They come with
the sanction of divine authority and
echo the voices of the prophet. They
wore spoken by John, tho herald of
Jesus, the Messiah, who continued
them by his teaching; and their truth
Is proven by hnmau experience.
Note the term. "Life" moans the
perfect possession of every power, of
human nature. Thla Includes the will
to use each power. To have a perfect
body would be glorious, but none poe
seea It. When Socrates saw one that
seemed complete he cried. "Jove, how
beautiful!' We nave hla enthusiasm.
More splendid la the life of the spirit
In man, and It Is to this these words
refer. Each of us knows some one
who possessed in rare degree this life;
suoh Interpret to us the divine; wc In
stinctively feel theyare of Uod. "Oa
God and Godlike men we build our
trust." nut even these have their
faults; only one has ever lived on ourth
jKrfect In all things. Imperfection, un
less righted, tends to death. We can
not stand still; we fight against the
downward tendency, seeking help from
such as we think can help us crow bet
ter. So we tie ourselves to the physi
cian, the teacher, the friend. Is It not
true that the best wish of your beat
moments Is that you may become bet
ter? And we have all found that, be
yond a certain point, there Is no holp
ln man. Once there came uuto our
world a perfect man, "the Son of God,
with power." He gave himself to the
work of redeeming men from death to
life, and, through his spirit, be Is a
constant savior. "He that belleveth In
the Son hatb everlasting life."
"Belleveth." It means wore than
assent to the statement of the gospel.
Faith Is willing self-surrender to God.
Only thus can hU vitality Impart Itself
to us. This is possible for every one.
They are self-deceived who think other
wise. All about us are those os Ignor
ant, weak, and hard pressed as you
are who, because they open heart and
mind to him, are growing better. Are
not they who refuse to do this fools
Tho condition for every one Is obedi
ence. It Is so l'n all relationship. To
effect a cure the physlchfn must bo
obeyed, the teacher must be followed,
the friend honored, and If the Redeem-or-
is to save from death to life our
part is to honor, follow and obey.
Do the words, "the wrath of God,"
seem cruel words? Nevertheless, our
human relationships explain them. We
are more than Inhabitants; we tire cltl
7.cns of New York, having certain In
herent rights and obligations. Its laws
are the measure of these. If I choose
to go contrary to these rules of eon
duct and commit a crime the wrath of
the city, the penalty of Infringement
of law, la Incurred. The convicted
criminal Is still u part of New York.
The same conditions hold In the family
life. Does it seem strange that the
divine government is illustrated by
theso analogies? Remember the laws
of God are not arbitrary; they are w
'sentlal to life. Still tlie problem fares
us, how can the God of love ovor be
wrathful toward his child? Well, un
doubtedly the Bible proclaims this, and
no does nature. 8ho works by law-, and
to the obedient Is benellelal. Electric
ity carries your message and moves
jour cars, but disobey her and she
kills you. This Is the moaning of ap
plied science. And in the moral world
the same principle holds. It Is thus
in friendship; refuse to love and honor
your friend and how her life rebukes
you. By and by you hute the goodness
which you will not Imitate. Judas wuh
cursed by tho same friendship tlut en
nobled John. A great teacher mild:
"Men lire ruined by their best and dear
est friends, not by their indulgent
fondness, but by the noble example
tluit Is nevor followed and the noble
invitation that is never answered." Kx
perience has taught some of us that
this is true.
I desire above all else to make
known God's lore. It Is a reality, It
is tlie one power that can meet every
need of man, and can lift up Htalned,
broken lives into trengtb, aud beauty,
and perfoctuewi. I have tried to do
this to-dny. Only you must face the
facts of life and know tho truth. God
does care for you. Ho has given you
, power, scope, nbovo all his spirit, that
you may become perfect. Identify
your Jlfo lylru that of the Son, lovo
, him, learn of him, follow him, and
you shall become like hint. There nro
only three steps from earth to hoi von
acts, habits, character. These same
step may lend downward to death
Which Is your chosen wvy? I.ct tins
truth possess you. Let rt make you
hraxe, hopeful, serious. He men of
God, living In his service, happy In
his love, and you shall master any sit
uation; you shall know life, Indeed.
