The inspired pens of three of the evangelists have Given us the character of a Young Man who stood As fair for this world and the next As thousands that hear the gospel. In All age a since these narratives were written this Young Man has been the representative , of their Ahara oter and Hopes and Many so much resemble him that they Are disposed to ask his question a a what Lack i yet a a Matt Xix 20. Let us enumerate some of his advantages in the of Huron and in the Community. He was a Young Man. Life was Bright hot fore him. The world has pleasures and charms that attract and even fascinate the Young. Circumstances and seasons May fill a Youthful mind with gloomy a an dark Shad. Own May obscure the future. But Hopo usually brightens the scenes of Early life and in health and Prosperity the Young heart is generally disposed to rejoice. We have no reason to believe that this Young Man made his inquiries on Kerning eternal life because of failing health or dejected a spirits. He had not held fast to the world till he would hold it no Longe but he had still before him the Bright visions which de Light the Young. He was in Possession not Only of youth but of much to Render life a agreeable and the world charming. He was Rich. The evangelists say he had great to sessions. We May speak of the vanity of riches of their danger to the soul of the Folly of trusting in them or being puffed up by them but this is certainly True riches in the hands of a Young Man add much Power to the temptations alluring him to choose the world As his portion but riches Are a Means of influence. A Man May be Rich and despised but wealth does extend a Many a influence does elevate him a society norms thia when he uses his wealth rightly is a a Rich in Good works ready to distribute ready to communicate. It is probable that being Rich in his youth the Young Man had not acquired his property by his own exertions. Though this s not said yet he was perhaps descended of a family of wealth standing and Respecta lilith. He was a Young Man of station. In the gospel by Luke he is called a ruler it is not known How high1 his office nor whether it was civil or in the synagogue. As a Young ruler he had some esteem in the Community. A a in All likelihood he was a Church member. That no mention is made that he was. A jew is the Dearest proof that he was so. He was evidently acquainted from his youth with the oracles of god and accustomed tothe services of jewish worship Quot Lei us notice some. Points of his character. A. He was a believer in gods word and in the doctrine of a future life. Possibly he had never doubted the scriptures. He asked what Good thing shall i do that i May have eternal life ? this shows his be Lief of these things., a. He was a moral Man. He stood charged with no irreverence toward god no filial disobedience is Laid to his account. Quot his hand had never been raised to harm or1 defraud a neighbor no impurity stained his reputation no falsehood r had brought re proach upon him and Content with his own possessions he had cast no envious looks at the Fields of the stranger. At least this is Ike account he gives of himself and in the absence of direct rebuke from our. Lords lips we also it May allow the. Bold Challenge. A a i have done All these a to pass without contradiction. It is Likely that few Young men of his nation had kept the Law of Goa More rigidly than he. Surrounded by Many who knew him it of a by his childhood before the wondrous jews he says and doubtless in All sincerity a a All these have i kept from my month he was respectful to religion and its teachers. A ruler himself he shows no Falbe Pride of station to undue his own importance. He addressed our lord even with reverence. He Knelt before him and asked in respectful deference a a Good master what Good thing must i do a. A Quot a. His actions indicate that he was deeply interested in this inquiry. He came in haste. When our lord was gone Forth in the Way he came a running and keeled to him he seized his Opportunity As the great teaoher.passed., True he was y Jung and worldly minded. Men could give Many reasons Why he should not he in haste to press such an inquiry. His life had been Good. Perhaps there had been some few failings now and then but what were these before a merciful god if he needed to make such an inquiry How sad. Was the thousands All around him and surely there was time enough for him yet. These and a score of similar objections might have occurred to prevent him from coming to ask this great question but an Earnest mind looks through the Flimsy covering of paltry Camiling. Doubtless he thought he was ready to do it All that might be demanded. He Felt that something More was required than yet he. Had Ever reached. The world indeed might have decided that he stood in no need of anxiety. Born and educated lip the Church blameless in morality zealous of. Duty an influential and useful member of society Why need a feel ,of deficiency or ask in haste Jhel question what Lack i yet.?Man is in the wrong without having at times a painful impression of his error. When men grossly indulge in sin or when they live without reflection it is hard to decide How stupid and seared the console Noe May become. Yet the slumbers of conscience May not always continue and doubtless it often awakes in men who seem to be careless and this at unexpected times. Bat certainly when a Man is instructed in the True teachings of the scriptures a no Excel Lence of personal character Ean satisfy an intelligent mind that All is right , and its god. Solid peace to must rest on a better foundation than our own works of righteousness. L feeling that something was lacking he thought himself willing to Supply it. It was doubtless a self righteous feeling and found Don ignorance of. Himself yet i is there something hopeful in his inquiring spirit. He has some idea of the value of the soul some desires after everlasting life still his thoughts were too Low for these great subjects As the unhappy event shows. A let. Us learn Here with profound humility that a soul May., be an inquirer to Little profit and even to no advantage. Yet the very position of the Young Man Here gives Usan interest in him he makes an open,1 candid and most momentous inquiry a Rone not at All ashamed to confess his anxiety he esteems everlasting life a subject worthy of his thoughts indeed. He. Came not like Nie Odemns by night and when Jesus was alone. In the open Way like a Frank in tenuous Man he comes it to ask our lord., it is even said that Jesus beholding him loved him a Ltd. Nor Are characters like his so rare but that we May have met them. The teachings of the Bible influence Many minds that do not fully yield to them so we have seen Many Young persons of both sexes Correct in their general deportment Lovely amiable kind in their relation to. Others with desires for usefulness the Joy of parental hearts commanding respect and awaken do Hope in their pastors beloved by their companions and highly esteemed for. Many Virtues. Their society is desired their visits welcomed to the social Oriole Christian friends beholding them love them. And yet if these stood in the place of the Young jewish ruler before the incomparable teacher his faithfulness would say to each one while he loved him a a yet blackest thou one thing indeed it would be had to find a Young Man who in his natural character is Superior to this one. Few can make claims As High or with greater plausibility. Yet he went sorrowfully away from Christ l. From our lond a correspondent. Ati Twe christians a indic go sit j. Lawrence.

Lord hath done for his people and for lost sinners in this part of the heritage of god. The congregation of West Union in the Trebby Teiry of Washington has recently a enjoyed some special tokens of the presence and Power of. The holy spirit and Are now rejoicing in the fulfilment of the Promise of the father which we have heard of Christ it has been the privilege of the writer to preach to that people As. Supply and to administer the a sacrament of the lords sapper at which time god was pleased to show his Power and favor in Blessing his people and in making the word effectual unto salvation. A the services commenced one week previous to the. Communion and. Continued until the monday evening after every time that the congregation assembled it was evident that there was More than common interest by the Earnest attention the tear a Ful Eye and the1 increasing number present. When Sabbath came it was a solemn Day and All present appeared to feel that a a the lord is in this place and i the services were prayer Praise and the preaching of the gospel of Christ As Tel Ching the sinners lost condition "his5 aversion to the Law of god his unwillingness to come to the Saviour the need of the holy spirit to melt the hard heart and make the soul willing in the Day of divine Power the duty of a repentance toward god and Faith in the lord Jesus Christ a and the want of the holy spirit to give the Earnest desire to the seeking Sou the office of the spirit As the author of the new birth and that the. Blood of Jesus Christ his son clean Seth from All sin. When god is pleased to bless his word then the haughty spirit is a broke the hard heart it contrite and the True sacrifice is presented on the altar of gods Grace and by the Merit of Christ it is accepted of god. We have seen sinners in Zion trembling weeping and exclaiming a sirs we would see Jesus a a what must i do to be saved a a a How shall i get rid of my Burden of sin a a about thirteen persons United with the Church most of whom Are her children. And since the communion about fifteen More have confessed that they Are lost and desire to seek Pardon a and peace by the new and. Living Way which the Lamb of god has prepared most of whom Are now hoping in Christ and the precious promises in the gospel of gods son. Among these1 persons you May find both the. Parents a and children Quot four Heads of families who have too Long neglected their souls and the salvation of their households.
