A pril 17, 1928 T ext: Luke 6:35



A Chinese man, lying on his death-bed, was told for the first time o f “Jesus and His love.” “A h !” he exclaimed, earn­ estly, “ I always thought there was a God like that, somewhere." An old Hindu woman made a similar remark: “ I always thought there ought to he a God like that.” A student in India, longing for spiritual enlightenment, yet believing his own reli­ gion to be entirely true, said of it: “ It exacts unflinching duty, and knows no grace . . . . but we err, we know not why. W e are led on, as it were, on the waves o f sin and mistakes. There are powers too great for our own frail being, and I wish then that there were a God who would be kind to me; who would feel my weaknesses, and who would extricate me from the meshes o f sin and temptation.” He did not know that the Lord Jesus had told us that God was kind; nor did he know that our Saviour was “ full of grace and truth.” ijg A pril 18, 1928 T ext: Isaiah 12:2 A young Irishman went to the minister and told him, with a very long face, that he had seen a ghost. “Where, and when?” said the pastor. “ Last night,” replied the timid man. “I was passing by the church, and up against the wall o f it did I, without a shadow o f a doubt, behold a specter.” “ In what shape did it appear?” inquired the man of God. “ It appeared in the shape o f a donkey,” replied the man. “ Go home and hold your tongue about it,” rejoined the minister. “ You are a very timid man, and have been frightened by your own shadow.” IP •H A pril 19, 1928 T ex t: 1 Tim. 1 :15 John Newton, who ran away to sea, and then to Africa, so that, he said, “ I might be freed from sin,” was sold at last to a negress, herself a slave. He sank so low that he lived only on the crumbs that fell from her table and on the raw yams that he dug by stealth at night. His clothing was reduced to a single shirt, which he washed in the ocean, hiding among the trees while it dried. Yet he never thought o f the better life. When he escaped from the drudgery he went to the natives, accepting base life. It does not seem possible for a civilized man to have sunk so low. But the power of Jesus laid hold o f him; he became a sea captain. Afterwards he was ordained a clergyman of the Church o f England. If we think his life meant nothing to us we are mistaken, for it was he that wrote the hymn we often sing, “ Safely Through Another Week.” He was also the author o f “ Come, My Soul, Thy Suit Prepare,” “Glorious Things o f Thee Are Spoken, Zion, City o f Our God,” “ One There Is Above All Others Well Deserves the Name o f Friend,” “ How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds in a Believer’s Ear.” In the Church o f London o f which he was rector you can still read the epitaph he wrote for himself: “ Sacred to the mem­ ory of John Newton, once a libertine and blasphemer, and slave o f slaves in Africa, but renewed, purified, pardoned and ap­ pointed to preach that Gospel which he labored to destroy.”— Bible Champion.
