Tul Niager a us Lief it today lights up Tho sorrows of this Ulfo nud sounds Tho gospel of Good cheer for All who will receive it his text was Luke xxiv 2u, a abide with us for it is toward two villagers having concluded their Corund in Jerusalem have started out at Tho City Gale and arc on their Way to Kmin uus Tho place of their residence. They go with a and heart. Jesus who Hail Beon their admiration and their Joy had been basely massacred Anil entombed. As with Sis Fuco and broken heart they pass on their Way u stranger accost them. They Tell him their anxieties and bitterness of soul. To in turn talks to them mightily expounding the fuck Ripe Wircs. throws Over them the Fisci nution of intelligent conversation. They forget Tho time uial notice not Tho objects they pass and before they Ute aware have come up in front of their House. They pause before Tho Entrance and attempt to persuade the st niger to Tarry with them. They press ism him their Hospital ties. Night is coining on and he May moot a prowling wild beast or be obliged to Tho Dew. To cannot go much further now. Why not Stop there and continue their pleasant conversation they take him by the Ami and they insist upon his coming in addressing him in the words Quot abide with us for it is toward evening. A toward evening. The candles my lighted the table is spread pleasant social tics Are Enkin led they rejoice in the presence of the stranger guest. asks u Blessing u i kill the bread they cat. And lie hands a piece of it to each. Suddenly and with overwhelming Power the thought flashes upon the astonish isl people a it is the lord and As they sit in breathless wonder looking upon the resurrected body of Jesus he vanished the interview ended he was gone. Widi Muy of is it is a Bright sunshiny Duy of Prosperity. There is not u Cloud in the sky not a Leaf rustling in Tho Forest no chill in Tho air. But we Cunot expect All this to lust. is not an intelligent Man who expects perpetual Daylight of Joy. The Sun will utter Whilo near Tho horizon. The shadows will lengthen. While i speak Many of ils stand in Tho very hour described in the text a for it is toward the request of the text is appropriate for some a fore me. For with them it is toward the evening of old age. They Havo passed Tho Meridian of life. Tivey Are sometimes startled to think How old they Are. They do not however like to have others remark a Ion it if others suggest their approximation toward venerable appearance they soy a Why in a not so old after they do indeed notice thut they cannot lift Quito so much As once. They cannot walk quite so fast. They cannot read Quito so Well without spec Tuples. They cannot so easily recover from a cough or any occasional ailment. They Hugo lost their taste for merriment. They Are surprised at the Quick passage of the year. They say that it Only seems a Little while ago that they were boys. They Are going a Little Down Hill. There is something in their health something in their vision something in their walk something in their changing associations something above something beneath something within to remind them that it is toward evening. Tho great want of All such is to Hugo Jesus Abido with them. It is u dismal thing to to getting old without the rejuvenating influence of religion. When to a top on Tho Down Grade of life mud Seo that it Dir to the verge of the cold River we qua. To behold some our near who will help us across it when Tho sight loses its Power to Glanco and gather up to need Tho Faith thut can illumine. When to feel the failure of the ear we need the Clear tones of that voice which in Olden times broke up Tho silence of Tho deaf with Cude nees of mercy. When the Ulm eur of death hew Down whole forests of strength Aud Beauty around us and we arc left in Solitude we need the Dove of divine mercy to sing in our branches. When Tho shadows begin to fall and we feel that Tho Day is fur spent to need most of All to Supplicate the Strong Benefice it Jesus in Tho prayer of the villagers Quot Abido with us for it is toward Cven aug. A tempt Tulou. The request of the text is on appropriate exclamation for All those who Aro approached in the gloomy hour of temptation. Thero is nothing easier than to to Good natured when everything pleases or to be Humble when there is nothing to oppose us or forgiving when we have not been assailed or honest when we have no inducement to fraud. But you Hutu Felt the grapple of some temptation. Your future at some time quaked mud groaned under Tho infernal Force. You Felt that the Devil was after you. You saw your Christian graces retreating. Y of feared hat you would fall in Tho awful wrestle with sin and be thrown into the dust. Tho gloom thickened. The first indications of the Light Wero seen in All the Trcon bling of your soul in All the infernal suggestions of Sutan in All Tho surging up of tumultuous passions Aud excitements. You Felt with awful emphasis thut it was toward evening. In Tho tempted hour you need to ask Jesus to Abido with you. You Ciui beat Back Tho i ouster that would devour you. You Ciui a horse the sin thut would ride you Down. You Cau Sharpen the Battleaxe with which you split the head of he meted abomination. Who helped Paul shake the Brazen gated heart of Felix who acted like a Good Sailor when All Tho Crew howled in Tho Mediterranean Shipwreck who helped Trio martyrs to be firm when our word of recantation would have in fastened the Withes of Tho stake and put out the kindling Are when the night of Tho soul came on and All the denizens of Dur Knoss came Riding upon the winds of perdition who gave strength to the soul who gave calmness to the heart who broke the spell of infernal enchantment he who heard Tho request of the villagers Quot abide with us for it is toward our of the forts of Franco was attacked Aud the out works were taken be fire Quot night. Quot the to singing army Lay Down thinking there was but Little to do in the morning and that the soldiery in Tho fort could be easily made to surrender. But during Tho night through a Back stairs they escaped into the a Nuttry. In Trio morning Tho besieging army sprung upon Tho Byttlo meets hut found that their prey was gone. when we Are uss bulted in temptation there is always some secret stir by which we might got off. Go Ltd will not allow As to be tempted above what to Are Able but with Ivory temptation will bring u Way of Csc Jio that to Muy be Able to Bear it. Anticipating sorrow. The Pryor of the text is appropriate for Ull who Are anticipating sorrow. The greatest Folly that Ever grew on this planet w the tendency to borrow trouble but there ure times when up preaching sorrow a a so evident that to need to be making spec jul preparation for its coming. One of your children bus lately become u favorite. Tho cry of that child strikes deeper into Tho heart Thau Trio cry of Ull the others. You think More Alx iut it. You give it More attention not by Curuso it is any More of a treasure than the others but because it is becoming frail. There is something in the Check in the Eye and in the walk that makes you quite sure that the leaves of the Flower arc going to be scattered. The utmost nursing Aud medical at Tendance Aro ineffectual. The pulse becomes feeble the complexion lighter the step weaker the laugh fainter. No More Rof Ping for that one through Hull Aud parlor. The Nursery is darkened by Ull approaching calamity. The heart feels with Mournful anticipation thut Tho Sun is going Down. Night speeds on. It is toward evening. You have Long rejoiced in Tho Caro of a Mother. You Havo done everything to make her last Days Happy. You Havo run with Quick feet to wait upon Lier every want. Her presence has been a incr Permil Blessing in Tho household. But the fruit gatherers ure looking wistfully it that tree. Her soul is Ripe for heaven. The Gates ure ready to Flash open for her Entrance. But your soul sinks it the thought of a separation. You cannot boar to think that soon you will be called to take the lust look at thut. Face which from Tho first hour bus looked upon Yon with affection unchangeable. But you Seo thut life is ebbing and Tho Gravo will soon hide her from your sight. You sit quiet you feel Henvy hearted. The Light is fading from Tho sky. Tho air is chill it is toward evening. A you Hud a considerable estate mid Felt Independent. In live minutes on one fair Baunee Sheet you could see just How you stood in the world. But there Cuino complications. 8omothiug that you imagine d a a possible happened. The is st Friend you bad proved traitor to your interest. A sudden crush of nation la misfortunes prostrated your credit. You May today be going on in Basin Ess but you feel anxious about where you Are standing and fear thut the next turning of the wheel will bring you prostrate. You foresee what you consider cd Ruiu Deal cation. You think of Tho anguish of telling your friends you Uro not Worth u Dollar. You know not How you will Ever bring your children Homo from school. You wonder How you will stand Tho Selling of your Library or Tho moving into a plainer House. Tho misfortunes of life Lyvo accumulated. You wonder what nukes the sky so dark. It is toward evening. Bwe Etc blur Tho Cap. Trouble is in apothecary thut mixes a great Many drafts bitter and sour and nauseous and you must drink Somo our of them. Trouble puts up u great Many pucks and you must carry Somo Ono of them. Thero is no Sandal so thick and Well adjusted but some thou will strike through it there is no sound so Sweet but Tho undertaker s screwdriver grates through it 111 this Swift shuttle of the human heart some of Tho threads must break. The journey from Jerns Lam to a momus will soon lie ended. Our Bible our common sense our observation reiterate in tones thut we Cau it mistake mud ought not to disregard. It is toward evening. Oil then for Jesus to ubide with us to sweetens the Cap. cd trucks Tho Thorn. wipes Trio tear. Hughes the tempest. soothes the soul that Flics to him for shelter. Let the. Get swoop and thu euro Lydon Cross the a. Let the thunders Roar. Soon Ull will to Well. Christ in Tho ship to soothe his friends. Christ of Tho sea to Stop its tumult. Christ in the grave to scatter the darkness. Christ in the heavens to loud the Way. Blessed All such. His arms will enclose them his Greco Comfort them his Light cheer them his sacrifice free them his glory Enchant them. If earthly estate takes wings he will to us incorruptible treasure. If friends die to will be tin in resurrection. Standing with is in the morning of our Joy Aud in the Noonday of our Prosperity to will not forsake us when the Luster has faded mud it is toward evening. Listen to Paul s Buttle shout with misfortune. Hark to mounting Luti Mer Quot fire song. Look at the glory thut bus Reft Trio Dungeon and filled the Earth Aud heavens with the crush of the falling manacles of despotism. And then look it those who have tried to euro themselves by human prescriptions attempting to heal gangrene with a Patch of court plaster and to Stop Tho plague of dying empires with the quackery of earthly Wisdom. Nothing Oan speak peace to Tho soul nothing Cau Dunstrap our crushing burdens nothing Cau overcome our spiritual foes nothing can Epin our eyes to see the Surrem Neidg horses mud chariots of salvation that fill All Tho mountains but the voice mud command of him who stopped one night at emr nuns. Tho words of the text ure pertinent to As All from the fact thut we Are nearing the evening of death. I have heard it said that we ought to live of though each moment were to be our last i do not believe that theory. A far As preparation is concerned we ought always to be ready but to can Dot always be thinking of death for we Bubo duties in life that demand our attention. When a Man is Selling goods it is his business to think of the bargain he is making. When a Man is pleading in the courts it is his duty to think of Tho interests of his clients. When a Lork is adding up his accounts it is his duty to keep his mind upon the column of figures. who fills up Bis life with thoughts of death is fax from being Trio highest style of Christian. I knew a Man who used to often say at night a i wish i might die before morning who became a Quot infidel. From time to eternity. But. Thero ure times when to Cun and ought to Alvo ourselves to the contemplation of that solemn moment when to Tho soul time ends mid eternity begins. We must go to rough that one pass. There is no Rou Dubont Way no by path no circuitous Rollo. Die to Mast Aud it will to to is u occurrence or a time of admirable behaviour. Our Fri us May stretch out their hands to in a us Buck bet no Imp locution of their part can him a us. They might offer Large retainers but death would not take the fee. The breath will fail mud the eyes will close mud the heart will Stop. You May hang the Couch with gorgeous tapestry but what does death Cun for Beautiful curtains you Muy Hung the room with the finest works of Art but what does death care for pictures a a in Miffy till the House with the mailings of widowhood and i orphanage does death wind weeping this ought not to be a depressing theme. Who wants to live Here forever the world has always treated me Well and every Day i feel less Ami less like scolding and complaining. But yet 1 would not want to make this my eternal residence. I love to Wutch the Clouis mud Butic my soul in the Blue sea of heaven but i expect when the fir run meet is rolled Uway As u scroll to Seo a new heaven grander higher and More glorious. You ought to be willing to Exchange your body that has in Duches mud Side Rhos mud weaknesses innumerable that limps with the Stone Bruise or festers with tile Thorn or flumes of the Fuu Enil pyre of fevers for in incorruptible body und in Eye shut blinks not before the Jasper Gates and the great White throne. But Between Eliut und this there is i hour about which no Mutt should to reckless or Foolhardy. I doubt net your courage Bat i Tell you that you will want something better Thuu a Strong Arm a Good aim and u trusty sword when Yon come to your last Battle. You will need u better Robe Thun any you have in your wardrobe to keep you warm in that place. Thu a Tuioi Luis night. Circumstances do not Muke so much difference. It May be a Bright Duy when you Pash off from the planet or it May be a dark night mud while the owl is hooting from the Forest it May to Spring and your soul May go out among the blossoms Upple Orchards swinging their censers in tin Way. It Muy be Winter mud the Earth in a Snow shroud. It May to autumn and the forests set of Are by the retreating year dead us Turc Luid out in state. It Siuy be with your wife s hand in your hand or you make Boiu u strange Lintel with a servant faithful to Trio lust. It May be in the rail train shot nil Quot the switch und tumbling in Long reverberation Down the embankment crash crash i know not the time i know not tie Mode but the Days of our life an being subtracted unav and to shall come Down to the time when we have but ten Duys left then nine Duys thou eight Days then seven Days six Days five Duys four Duys three Days two Days our Day. Then hours three hours two hours our hour. Then Only minutes left five minutes four minutes three minutes two minutes Ono minute. Then Only seconds left four seconds three seconds. Two seconds one second. Gone the chapter of life ended. Tho let ook closed. The pulses it rest. The feet through with the journey. The hands closed from All work. No word of Tho lips. No breath in the nostrils. Hair combed Back to lie by Auy human hands. The Muscles still. Thu nerves still. The lungs still. Tho Tongue still. All still. You might put the Stethoscope to the breast und hear no sound. You might Pul a speaking trumpet to the car but you could not Wake thu deafness. No motion no throw no life. Still still so death comes to to disciple what if the Sun of life is about to set Jesus is the Day Spring from of High the Jar pc Tuul morning of every ransomed spirit. What if the darkness comes Jesus is the Light of the world Aud of heaven. What though this earthly House docs crumble pc sus has prepared a House of Many mansions. Jesus is the Suchor thut always holds. Jesus is the Light that is never eclipsed. Jesus is the Fountain that is never Xhu usted. A it sons is the evening Star Hung up amid thu gloom of the gathering night. A you Are almost through with the abuse and backbiting of enemies. They will Call Yon no Mure by evil names. Your Good deeds will no longer be misinterpreted nor your Honor filched. Thu troubles of Earth will Iii in the Felicitits. Toward evening the bereavement of Earth will soon be lifted. You will not much longer stand pouring your grief in the Tomb like Rachel weeping for her children or David mourning for Absalom. Broken hearts bound up. Wounds lieu led. Tears wiped away. Sorrows terminated. No Mure sounding of the dead Anarch toward evening death will come Sweet As slumber to the by lids of the babe us full rations to a starving Soldier is evening hour to the Eliu usted Workman. Thu sky will take on its Sunset glow a very Cloud a fire psalm every Lake a Glassy Mirror the forests transfigured delicate mists climbing the air. Your friends will Minoa Noc it your pulses will beat it your Joys v ill ring it your lips will whisper it. Quot toward evening a the origin of n name. There is a p ueral belief thut Gnu Ncry a urn in Kensington received its Dan e f of tilt fact that a great Many sportsman the Banks of the Stream b. Fore the time of Kensington becoming a a Union of Tho built up City. This belief is held by us of those who live i i tin Vicinity.
