Richmond Daily Dispatch (Newspaper) - October 27, 1854, Richmond, Virginia January to 1909. The presbyterian of the South. Christ and the family. I he Law of the Cross must control the family. Love which is a natural passion and principle of life will always insure the institution of the family and the ministrations of motherhood and the Protection of fatherhood in the lower ranges of human life. But natural love needs to be inspired with divine emotion in order to insure the holiest ministrations and the highest service. Hence the Christian Man is commanded to love his wife As Christ loved the Church thoughtfully considerately tenderly and with willing sacrifice and the Christian wife is commanded to reverence her husband As the Church references Christ with such Faith and Devotion As will seek his Success and his Honor. And parents Are commanded to bring up their children in the nurture of the lord in that atmosphere of love and kindness and faithful training which will tend to promote a character worthy of continuance by virtue of its likeness to the character of homiletic . It is the inner life that makes our world. If our hearts Are Sweet patient gentle Loving we find sweetness patience gentleness and love wherever we go. But if our hearts Are bitter jealous suspicious we find bitterness jealousy and suspicion on every path. If we go out among people in a combative spirit we find combativeness in those we meet. But if we go Forth in a charitable Frame of mind with Good will in our hearts toward All we find Brothe Liness and cordiality in every Man we come up to in our walks and associations. A in ourselves the Sunshine dwells in ourselves the music swells everywhere the heart awake finds what pleasure it can make everywhere the Light and Shade by the Gazer s Eye is this is the secret of that Fine Art which people possess of always finding Good and Beauty in others. They have goodness and Beauty in themselves. There arc such people and there is no reason Why we should not set this Ideal for our . J. R. answers prayer. Jehovah the Loving god distinctly promises to answer the prayers of his children. He that gave parents a love for their children will he not listen to the cries of his own sons and daughters he has wonders in store for them. What they have never heard of never seen or dreamed of he will do for them. He will invent new blessings if needful. He will ransack sea and land to feed them he will Send every Angel out of heaven to Succour them if their distress requires it. He will astound them with his Grace and make them feel that it was never before done in this fashion. All he asks of them is that they Call upon quiet hour it is the same now. Hen we read the scriptures we arc again and again with so up Csc and sorrow to see that our Savior had so few friends among All those that pressed about him to hear his gracious words and see his divine Power exercised in behalf of the suffering and the sorrowful but had so Many enemies. Pitiable indeed docs it All seem. In All his life so ready to do Good so ready to save from the Power of sin and the grave and yet had so few to love and reverence him Earnest and anxious to give life and immortality to All that would accept and yet so few were willing to receive him As Quot the Way the truth and the could any one Ever doubt the willingness of Jesus to save and yet some pretended to do this very thing. A the trouble was not with the blessed Savior no not at All Jesus was willing to save but men were unwilling to be saved. Docs he not say a Eye will not come unto me that be might have life this was his sad lament 1900 years ago As he stood and looked into the faces of the men and women that thronged him to both hear and Sec. It is still the same. Circumstances have changed but men never change arc the same today As they were then and Jesus still laments their unwillingness to be saved. So earnestly and so powerfully does he set Forth in the scriptures this True condition by reason of sin and pleads with All his great Loving heart that men should come to him and live a believe and yet now As then he sorrowfully says a Eye will not come unto me that be might have is it not strange passing strange shall a judge offer Pardon to the condemned and he reject the gift shall a Sovereign offer to a rebel guilty of treason against the state a free Pardon for his grave offence and the rebel refuse so it seems Jesus Christ says a Eye will not conic unto me that be might have quaint old Matthew Henry says the Only reason Why men die is they will not come to Christ for life. Not because they cannot but because they will not. This puts the matter in an alarming Light. A the is Able to save unto the uttermost All that come unto god by Man alone is the unwilling party. The True religion. The world has Small need of a religion which consists solely or chiefly of emotions and raptures. But the religion that follows Jesus Christ alike when he goes up into the High Mountain to Pray and when he comes Down into the dark Valley to work the religion that listens to him alike when he tells us of the peace and Joy of the fathers House and when he Calls us to feed his lambs the religion that is willing to suffer As Well As to enjoy to labor As Well As to Triumph the religion that has a soul to worship god and a heart to love Man and a hand to help in every Good cause is pure and Van Dyke
