shall bring his trespass offering unto the Lord” (Lev. 5:5, 6). if we are convicted and have come short, committing trespass in “the holy things of the Lord,” let there be a full, frank, whole-hearted, sincere Confession- Confession brings sin out, and puts it into the light, and makes its ugliness to be plainly seen. . . . We cannot have the life of unbroken fellowship with God, and joy in His service, if any sin is compromised with or condoned. So let us examine ourselves together. —E. L. Langston. 20. The School of Faith “What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee” (Fsa. 56:3). Dear one, if ypu scarcely realize the value of your present opportunity, if you are passing through great a fflic­ tions, you are in the very soul o f the strongest faith, and if you will only let go, He will teach you in these hours the mightiest hold upon this throne which you can ever know. I f you are afraid, just look up . . . and you will yet thank God for the school of sorrow which was to you the school of faith. —A. B. Simpson. 21. Contentment and Ambition "I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord” (Matt. 25:21). The spirit of simple contentment with lowly things is of Christ’s giving, and is one of His precious gifts. But so, too, is the princely spirit that aspires after the glory that comes from God. . . . True ambition is of God—not selfish lust for power, . . . but that greatness of mind which the Lord Himself creates, and to which He makes appeal when He tells us that the faithful servant shall have dominion over many things. —James Culross. 22. Not Afraid to Confess Christ “Ye shall be my witnesses” (Acts 1:8, R.V.). In one of our meetings a little tow­ headed Norwegian boy stood up. He could hardly speak English, but he got up and came to the front. He trem­ bled and the. tears trickled down his cheeks as he said, “If I tell the world about Jesus, He will tell the Father about me.” That was all he said, but I tell you in those few words he said more than all the rest of them, young and old together.—D. L. Moody. _ 23. Murmurings “Do all things without murmurings" (Phil. 2:14). Do you realize that complaints against your circumstances are in reality di­ rected against the One who ordered them? No other circumstances than those in which you find yourself at this moment could achieve Hla high-

all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s” (Phil. 2:20, 21), Paul did not weakly complain be-, cause he had no helpers, Good and ear­ nest men are very apt to say much about the half-hearted way in which their brethren take up some cause in which they are eagerly interested. . , . May not such faint-hearts learn a les­ son from him who had “no man like- minded,” and yet never dreamed of whimpering because of it, or of flinging down his tools because of the indolence of his fellow-workers? —Alexander Maclaren. His Last W°rds "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mk. 16: 15). The Lord I love went home one day, Went home to God. He did not say How long He would be gone, nor when He would be coming back again. I only know that He has gone To make a place for me. Some dawn Or evening light He’ll come for me! Till then there is a task that He Has set for me, His last command, To preach the Word! 0 heart and hand. Be consecrated to His cause! — Selected. 17. Running the Race “Let us run with patience the race that is set before us” (Heb. 12:1). Has your life opened up to the pattern that was set before your astonished gaze when first you trusted Jesus? Or have you become so pedestrian in the Christian life that you have ceased to th in k of running any more? Let Christ put His joy and glowing love in your heart, to be shed abroad by the Holy Spirit, and then dare to venture on the God of the extraordinary. —W. Y. Fullerton. 18. Eating God’s Word “Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart” (Jer. 15:16). The vigor of our spiritual life will be in exact proportion to the place held by the Word in our life and thoughts. Since I began to search it diligently, the blessing has been wonderful. I have read the Bible through one hundred times, and always with increasing de­ light. Each time it seems like a new Book to me. I look upon it as a lost day when I had not had a good time over the Word of God. —George Muller. 19. Sincere Confession “And it shall be, when he shall be guilty . . . that he shall confess, that he hath sinned in that thing. And he 16.
