credit to the divine record concerning Him, I let this holy love of God pour itself into my soul, as light streams in upon the body the moment I open my eye to the. sun. I look and live; I look and am healed; I look and am blest for ever. How am I to keep this love of God? By “holding the beginning of my confi­ dence steadfast unto the end” (Heb. 3: 14). I am to keep hold of it, just as I first took hold of it.—H. B. THE LORD’S PRAYER It has been well said that this prayer embodies a Catholic spirit in “ Our Fath­ er” ’; a reverential spirit, in “ Hallowed be thy name” ; a missionary spirit in “ Thy kingdom come” ; an obedient spirit in “ Thy will be done” ; a dependent spir­ it in “ Give us this day our daily bread” ; a penitent and forgiving spirit in “ Lead us not into temptation” ; an adoring spirit, in its sublime ascription, “Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.”

MEASURELESS LOVE “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1 John 4:10). .How am I to measure the love of God? By the distance between “the throne of the Majesty in tne heavens” and the grave, in which the Son of God was laid. It was an infinite descent, and it is the measure of an infinite love.' How am I to estimate the love of God? By the gift which is so freely sent down to us,—the infinite, the unspeakable gift. Nothing can equal that gift in value, and nothing can equal that love in greatness. How am I to understand the love of God? It cannot be understood; it pass- eth knowledge; it is beyond the stretch of our thought. How am I to-deserve this love of God? Deserve it! It is love to the undeserv­ ing. This is its essence, its character­ istic. It is absolutely free. How am I to obtain this love of God? By receiving Him Who is the embodi­ ment, the incarnation of it. _Jn giving
