The eagerness la which he pressed the question that Lilb he Fon that he had done All there in i heart a want which he could not be hut which disturbed his peace and be restless. His soul. His spiritual co Loo is similar to one who Falls asleep Pilot. Suffering from pain. How restless disturbed the sleep How. Undefined Ibeling How dim the Conception of it is that annoys. V just so this per in the spiritual blindness that was upon was disturbed by that craving of. The kit which the spirit of a god alone Lough Christ can fill it pricked i Pon Noe reached his Low his and yet he knew not what was wanting. Joe in the tone of one assured is right yet devoid of the heart ils when it really possesses that which its iture demands he asks a a what Lack i it a when the fever is High and thirst a assumes the body if perchance sleep its us scarce Are we locked in its Sweet Brace until thirst causes Sweet visions of ter to Rise before us. We see it using from the Fountain or rising drip no from the Well. We see it fill the ass a Ven feel it Cool and refreshing to e touch but when we attempt to drink it Les our efforts. Just so those 0, without Christ attempt to satisfy the ritual wants of their hearts. It will not stayed.

They propose to secure eternal tie by obedience to the moral Law and works a Charity. God has not promised life in turn for these. To loves All efforts to keep his Law.

Whole no. 470 for the presbyterian Banner the action of Beaver presbytery on Parson the Church by every consideration of self preservation Progress and Success ought to take the subject of parsonage houses to her heart. Tie presbyterian Church has always held the Standard of ministerial qualification High. She looks for her most talented and educated As Well As pious sons to preach the gospel. In this she acts wisely. But the poor provision. Made for their support a Many instances after they Euter upon the sacred work is a great loss of strength. Whatever tends to promote the efficiency of the ministry leaving out of View the idea of Comfort should receive the serious attention of every established congregation. And among the things having an important bearing in this direction is the erection of parsonage or houses for the accommodation of the pastors. In some localities the fathers attended to this matter by securing a farm upon which a dwelling was erected for the. Ministers family and which was secured in perpetuity to the congregation for this purpose. No such provision however is to be found within our Bounds result is that great inconvenience often arises to a newly settled pastor. No suitable House can be had to rent and hence he must go into a Bouse where his family is but poorly accommodated and his opportunities for. Study very materially interfered with. Now if in such , lie. Congregation had a Avitable parsonage the minister would at once be at borne and there he could stay without the vexation and trouble of frequent moving. The want of such provision is a serious loss both to the pastor people. Otherwise the newly Settle 1 minister must Purchase land and build or Purchase property already requires an immediate outlaw of of capital which few very few can command and frequently entails upon the Pas tor a. Debt that oppresses his spirit and cripples his usefulness for years. It seems to us. Therefore that no time should be lost but that All our cd grebes should initiate me ures. For the attainment of this Mon it important object. In View therefore of the foregoing considerations resolved that parsonage in the present state of our churches have become a necessity. Resolved that it be recommended to All on churches to take measures for the erection of parsonage As soon As possible. In the present civil we Are to recognize the just judg to of heaven for our National sins we Are called upon As a Church and As Jitian citizens to Humble , in the mighty hand of god to Call to his distinguishing us As a u and to seek by prayer and Supply a confession of our sins and tins of our people sins of our the interposition of , his anger May be turned away from us Lour National integrity May be preserved constitutional Law and Liberty main c solved that we feel it to be a.

A this doctrine is hot sound. The a Tere fact of its existence does not make or prove a government to be the ordinance of god. It is its moral character As founded in principles of Justice and organized and administered for the Good of men that As gods ordinance of civil gov Ein Meiji. See Rem. Xiii. 1. Pet. Ii.

And establish a government to plunder other people and murder or enslave them to boil established government would not become by the fact of its existence. A a an ordinance of god a and its executive officers ministers a their government would be an ordinance of the Devil and its officers the ministers of the Devil doing his bad work. We must distinguish. So Algernon Sydney wrote a the tha pretends to the veneration and obedience due to the ministers of god must by his actions Manit est that be is so. And though . Unwilling to Advance a proposition that May sound harshly to tender ears inclined Tofee Lieve that the same Rule which obliges us to yield obedience to the Good magistrate who is the minister of god and assures us that in obeying him we obey god does equally oblige us not to obey those who make themselves the ministers of the Devil lest in obeying them we obey the Devil whose works they do.

We swept rapidly through Golden Fields of Grain bowing to the sickle or already cleared and past hop plantations whose a a bind a this year from recent dry weather and warm Sunshine is better far than was anticipated. We reach Folkestone Harbor soon after Noonday.

A Paul a great Pes Tiou. There is a striking illustration of the True character of fee Christian in the question of Paul a a lord what Wilt thou have me to do a it was eminently characteristic of the a Man himself. He, great activity and Energy. He had shown Feis by his Zeal in behalf of his Faith and his Devotion to the service of god. Trained in fee strictest school of the ancient Faith with Clear and exalted intellectual convictions of truth he was led to see in the Eligic. Of element of Power Over fee minds and hearts of Man which threatened fee subversion of the system to had so ardently cherished. His soul was stirred with in Paf ept. And holy ardor in defense of his re Ligion and with a. Commission to go Forth and Root up if possible fee now doctrine and persecute All who adopted it be was a powerful opponent of fee Church of Christ he had received a new revelation on his Way to Damascus and when feat great clip be had been effected.

The violent struggle had been terminated by his submission to the Saviour he had Perse cuff Dalisee anti Vitiz a of his heart and mind were developed new Dir Eton and his first demand was. To know How he could consecrate his to Ivers and his labors service of Christ. He is our example and will remain a pattern to men in every age till the end of time. A Quot Paul believed in action he was not Content wife simple Faith Hope and experience of the Power of converting Grade his Faife was to be witnessed by his works. His Hope was to be exhibited by Nis a life testimony. His experience was to by enriched quickened and deepened by. Fee of the new Powers of divine Grace life is action. Dead Trees Bear no fruit.

So eau feeling feat fee constraining love of Christ was a motive Power which could arouse convert subdue conquer arid quicken dead souls to life and conscious that this Power had been Given to him went Forth to endure All things if he inight win souls to Christ. Every converted soul has this Power. It is the same in kind if not in degree. There is a Unity in this love of Christ. It comes from one common source it operates by fee same Means on souls involved in one common spiritual. Curse and it produces the same fruits. If All have not the same degree of ability to testify or to labor we All have it in some degree. Tjie True Lover of Christ will not Dishonour his master by 4 practical denial of its Possession if he be conscious of his duty. Were Paul living to Day we believe that he would not be aft idl Manin the Church. What a boundless Field of influence would lie open before him. With a Zeal and a boldness of utterance like feat which filled his discourse on Mars Hill How would his voice Quot he heard Tinong on modern idolatries�?T,.and our time serving conventional ism a and our Money getting and pointing away from Earth to the Cross How would he unfold the truths of life and immortality i his life would be a blazing epistle whose language would be in letters of living fire and whose Powers would be Felt throughout the world.

A the Sabbath school Sanctuary. In most communities but few Sabbath school scholars Are found attending on the stated preach ing of the gospel. Their parents Send them to the Sabbath school but Seldom take them with them to. Church. It seems to be taken for granted that when the children have attended fee exercises of the Sabbath school they have attended upon All that is necessary for them. Never however was a More fatal mistake committed. The stated preaching of the gospel is of divine appointment Means of Grace furnished directly in connexion with the services of the Sanctuary Are those especially established by the great head of the Church for fee Saiva tiring of sinners arid fee edification of saints. No others introduced by Iri Ere human authority How excellent Soever they May be can form an adequate substitute for them. The children need them As much As the adult.
