Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” It is God’s will that sinners look to Christ, the Light of the world, for salvation, and then walk in the light which He gives.

Objects: A piece of chalk, a shoe and a chair. Lesson: If I should tell you that these three — the chalk, shoe and chair—had all died for us, would you be surprised? I hope you would be­ lieve me. It is true, even though it does seem strange. At one time this piece of chalk was alive. It is made up of the dead bodies of millions of very small creatures. Because they died, we now have the use of the chalk with which we write, and through which we may learn new truths. This chair was once alive in the forest, and its life was given in or­ der that we might have a place to 1 rest when tired. At one time this shoe was the skin of a live animal. The animal had to die in order that we might have shoes and walk with ease. It is not difficult to find many things which we use every day, hav­ ing come to us because something has died. Because of this, it should be easier to understand about Christ’s death for us. In John 10:10,11 we' read: “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shep­ herd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.” Going back to the chalk, let me re­ mind you that through it, we may * learn many truths. Jesus said, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). The chair reminds us of rest, and immediately we think of Christ’s words, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28). The shoe reminds us of walking and we think of John 8:12, “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” Because He was the Good Shepherd and gave His life for us, we have many things for which to thank Him.
