Chrott. XXIX. n. As >t: write this Sunday message 1 reajiai ttuit before it is in print the joydus bells may be ringing.' For the last two weeks one word has faced us kt every turn. ''Victory! The Victory Loan; the Victory Bond; and for a longer period every day's paper has been shouting to us this same glad sound. These are all real victories; but,;l would ask you to' see how they are the enploits in a campaign which presages a greater conquest for, the world than fias happened since the year 39 A.D. ,1 would atk you to see how :thia conquest is a vfotory foi* Chritt w|to in that year of human, history, purchased man's freedom, 'ires; we. need to keep ever before us I the inwardness of this war-that it is Indeed a campaign tor God-that the vlctoty we so soon expect to be'celebrating is the victory of Jesus Christ and Hia church.

That victory is continued wherever men band themselves together into business corporations or societies or nations and bring their corporate acts into harmony with the will of God; and that victory will not be complete until the Kingdoms of this world become the itingdoms of God. Threugii Tragedy and Suffering. , at; has been^^difticult in the presence' o( this world-tragedy of hunian sorrow, and seeming waste of human lite'.'to see in th% conflict any such Victory.

Let us asfc ourselves: what faith have we in Christ?-That Christ for whom the world was prepared and'worked for centuries. That Christ who .*on His victory on croas.- That .Christ whobe church has been extending His Kingdom ever since. That Chi^ist dethroned by Germany in whose place they have been trying to set up the gods of Odin and Thor and the gospel of might. What faith have we in this Christ? Are the principles of His Kingdom going to win |h the world? : In spite of everything that for neaf-ly five years has seemed to mock and discredit such a belief, we have gone on asserting it. Yes, Christ must ,be victorious, arid even in this world-wi6e horror we can tvace the proqf of such a faith. Vindicating Righteousness. First, see how tills-:iyar has tested the faith of the nations in the ideals of Christ's truth ahi Christ's ^ight-eousriesg.. , "Once to. every man, and .nation , Comes;the moment to,decide; . . In the strife twixt trutH' ^Ith falsehood -FoV the'good pr evil side. Some ^reat cause God's^new iWessiah Offers, each, the bloom or blight; And the choice goes i>y forever Twixt that darkness*t light." [vflM'd that choice ever cbiiie to nations so clearly as it came in our day? A great force full of all the panoply.of hkl "swept into,the'arena of the nations proclaiming a qew gospel of cui-ture; claiming pfiylleges for tlie Superman and Supernktioh which in-volv-ed trampling in the dust all sacred human rights. One by one all the nations of the world have had to .make the choice and range themselves on one side or the other. Look at these ideals side by side: Righteousness vs. Military Despotism Fpch said to the Huns: "Those ate the allied terms. Take them or leave them. But they are good only for 72 hours." We can Imagine that Foch was, remembering at'the>tlme the fall of ifletz some 48 years ago. Foch was in iietz at the time and knows what the heel of Germany an a conqueror is like. we^must/put first things first. The spiritual must have precedence over the material, and we must not exercise any undue; concern about those things of secondary importance which God has promised to provide, 1 Now regarding the saying ^"Love your .enemies." The Master did not meJ^n that we are to embrace our en- als, classes, groups, nations were emles as a mother embraces her; either engaged In a wild competition child. He did not mean that we are j of self-assertion and self-aggrandize-to look upon them as we do upon our j ment, or, in cowardice or in cynical friends. He did not mean that we 'sloth, standing aside and saying "let ultles, Gbd given capacities given back to God for His control, and all-their energy put forth without self-asser tion in harmony with the movements of pur fellows-stich is and shall be the work of the peace maker at'home. It ia work which can only he effective if, first, we havp made our own.peace with God.  - The Cost of Peace, In grace as in nature God is the Author of Peace. Nature tells us that peace is complicated; grace that it is costly. We took peace for granted in the days before the blow fell under which the whole world is staggering. NojT we have been teaming in a grim and dreadful school what the cost of peace may be. Should we not have dreamed it long ago, we, who are fol lowers of the Crucified? He ^ho is our Peace In virtue of what. He did and bore for us in .Gethsemane and on Calvary? Our eternal peace was verily bought with a price inestimable -the price of His precious blood. He suffered all 'the. mysterious, agony > f His Passion to bring back peace to the distracted, death-doomed . squIs of men! to bring "peace on earth to men of good will." And now we begin to see in the light of his great self-offer Ing, why it is that the blessing of the tji^hfire Is a ,coal shorUge In the if^^uring "the" coming winter, the ^SvUi he partly to blame. But the ate/t blame will rest on .those who 45to,a>uy their coal earijr. The United Press, rival of the Associated Press, Tvith which the Canadian Press is affiliated, pulled off the blg-ge'st boriehead ever pulled in newspa-perdom on this continent when it sent out that dispatch on Thursday saying the armistice had been signed. It was a take and a poor one, at that Germany in her armistice dellbera-tiftna shows the same sorap-of-paper spirit as was exhibited by her'four years ago when she invaded Belgium. The German can't be believed unde^ any circumstances-phless the coi queror Is sitting on top of him with a clulj In hie hands. have committed. What He meatis is , fight it out." Hence the growth of an that we are not to exercise the re- j unCliristian spirit in commerce, Indus-, vengeful, vindictive spirit. There is i try, in social life, in politics, national a vast difference between exercising revenge for a wrong done ind demanding' justice which will punish the wrong. if a person destroys your property and Injures your person and you bring him before the bar ot justice, arid the and international.

In Cohiifion Life. In the piAt; victories for Christ have largely been looked upon as, vltwi^rie^ in the individual soul. This war has taught us to widen our horizon as to what is involved In a victory for Christ. True; He must rein in, the individual;'but He ifiust rein in commerce and industry; in business and. pleasure; in science and art; in government and politips; and one ^great victory of this war is going to be: that the policies i of nations are never again going to be the shuttlecocks yf kings and d piomats; but ' they �are going to be based, upon the right of free peoples who will demand that they be governed .by tlie.principle cif the truth' and the righteousness as taught by Jesuf ^hrlst. Moreover, the right-to qialce milllouS out bf the nece'siities 'Of'life it the expeiise' ot mankind. has -been denied through tjils war, and it'is never agam going to be looked upon as a right. The war has been vindicating these principles, and when it is over and the wprld has time to think, man is going to demand that his common life (hlS life in-common with the rest of mankind) hd governed by them. ' By Self Sacrifice. This war has evidenced yet-another victory in that it has vindicated the fundamental principle of Christ; *the �principle Christ set before his followers as the guiding star of their lives; the principle Christ lived to exemplify and died to make eternally victorious ataoiijgf men. : The principle of self sacrifice! Nation after nation has solemnly ta'k'en its place in the conflict, ready to ventui'e all, to sacrifice ail, evenithe blood of its noblest and its best. "To 'Such a task," said President Wilson: as the last great nation entered; "To such a taalt we'dedicate our lives-rever:^thlng we^ are-everything we ppssesE." Is It not so? This war has given.the world an exhibition df self sacrifice and' in doing; so ha? set a standard. -Lives havbibeen surrendered iforfprlnciples. Men have died [for these,'principles. ; And lest the victory be iQSt we must'live 'or those same princi|)les or dishonor the dead. They are tiie principles of Christ.. The principles the church has been trying ^o teach these 1900 years. Has she been feeble and inetfectual? She should not be again if we who are 80 soon gpihg to, shout yibtoiy, will realize the fullhesBjiOf that victory and'set ourselves to perpetuate it as a victory for God, ttepugh buffering, vindicating '.righteoii^ess and' justice in common life, by the sacrifice ot self.. � �  ; ^ , When the hour bf final- victory! strikes bb sure you utter a heartfelt: "Thank God!"
