in due time.” This black “U” reminds me of proud people who are trying to exalt themselves. [Hold the “U” in the right hand with the fingers toward the audience.] If the sinner is ever to please God, he must be cleansed and humbled under the hand of God. We see what happens when a proud sinner accepts Christ as his Saviour. [Drop the "U” beneath the hand, allowing it to become a white cipher.] It is changed from a black “U” to a white cipher, as' the sinner admits that he is nothing. God never uses a proud person as fully as He could if that person were humble. He uses a humble person who is cleansed by the blood of Christ. When self is humbled under the hand of God, you are then in a position to be used by Him. God has promised to exalt those who are saved and humbled under His hand. If you are willing to be nothing for Christ now, you will be something with Him some day. This is what happens. [Lift the cipher above the hand with the thumb toward the audience.] The “U” is now gold, speaking of glory. The sinner who receives Christ is' Cleansed and humbled and will some day be exalted in glory. certain ones would be blessed at the resurrection of the just. Immediately listeners were reminded of the bless­ edness which would come in the king­ dom of God, and Jesus began to speak of the entrance into that kingdom. By means of a story concerning a certain man who would give a great sup­ per, Jesus pointed out the manner in which God’s invitations are treated. All the men in the parable are equally bid­ den and given sufficient time to pre­ pare for the event. All are equally called when the supper is ready. The custom in those days was to send out the invitation, and then, when the sup­ per was ready, to dispatch servants

cipher. Join them together with a piece of white paper which completely covers both. Fold the white sides together, giving the appearance of ■a “U." Color one side of the “U” black and the other gold.)-" LESSON: What is the matter with this large “U” ? “It is black, reminding us of sin.” Did you know that it is a sin to be proud? The sinner always wants to ex­ alt himself. This is the reason Jesus Christ said, in Luke 14:11, “For who­ soever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.” The saying, “The way up is down,” is true, as strange as it may seem. In 1 Peter 5:6, we read, “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you Luke 14:15 And when one of them that eat at meat with him heard these things, he said nnto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God. 16 Then said he unto them, A certain man made a great supper, and hade many: 1! And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Comes for all things are now ready. 18 And they all-with one consent began to make excuse. The first said nnto him,. I have bought a piece of ground, and I must need« go and see it: I pray thee have me Excused. 19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. 20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. 21 So that servant came, and showed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. 22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. - , _ 23 And the lord said nnto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and com­ pel them to come in, that my house may he filled. - 24 For I say nnto yon, That none of those men which were hidden shall taste of my supper.
