In Ord r to do this it May it Well to to k at the great Points to which in wifi necessarily have regard in the distribution of i Lime. Atiee the difficulties which die Ennst grapple. 1. Tie list find time for the professional read Ingol tie strip ties. Fie is set Lor the exposition and defense of the gospel to inform tin in Quong to confirm the wavering a to Exon and convince the gainsay he therefore cannot real Content with such a study of tin scriptures As might suffice for a Man in other walks of life lie must study the Bible in its tongues must study it by the lights of criticism and history with the Eye of a preacher and a theologian. Lie must Sui Fly it in View of the Many ingenious Pervers on of it by a philosophy falsely so called a in such a Way that lie May defend the great doctrines which he proclaims by an effective Appeal to a a the Law Ami the lie must study it so As to become increasingly familiar with its profound internal evidence which Are Ever breaking upon the View with new Light and Force and which Arp amply confirmed by every discovery within the realm of literature and science. What a wide and Noble Field is Here spread before him after having toiled Long in it he will often feel i that he a it just stirred the surface. It is full of i goodly pearls. The Bible is an of wealth to which a minister must constantly repair to increase hts store or he will soon Leel the pain of intellectual and spiritual poverty. 2. Lie must find time to study the Bible a Evo tonal a. Lie has a heart to cultivate. He has personally spiritual wants to be met. He must study the Bible therefore for other than professional Ems. He must study it As All christians do who Excel in piety for the purpose of kindling afire so the glow of his a a first love a those feelings of penitence and Hope and i Ivy and Joy with which he a a received Chris in at tin time of his conversion. Without this his graces will languish his intellectual acquirement Wilt Lack lift and warmth anti Bis Zeal will be but a a painted what a cold ministration of truth that must be which comes from a a Iii w to studies the Bible for others and not for himself. What a pitiable ease is his to whom it May he truly said a a thou Hast been made the keeper of vineyards hut thine own Vineyard thou Hast not 3. Lie must find time for general Reading. He needs this for himself and his profession demands it of him. Be needs it am himself to give comprehensiveness to his views Anil his profession demands that he he acquainted with the state of to around him. The press is the grand h a rom ter of the moral world Points out the Workings of those elements which must form the character of the present Ami a coming age and shows the close observer whether to look to the future lbs jays of storm or Sunshine. 7o Avail himself of this advantage a Man need not read e cry thing that is published. He could not if he would and he ought not if lie could. Borne works however he should read thoroughly and aim to know the general character of the productions of the press. W without doing this the progressive Riipi Vafi s of society Wilt take him by surprised his mini rations will often Lack adapted Ness to time and place and new forms of error. Instead of being anticipated w ill first reveal themselves to his View in the triumphs they shall have gained around him. 4. He must find time to Mettke Many visits. The ends id the pastoral relation i Anliot be attained without an acquaintance with families and individuals. I 7 tie Emle Milf tics of personal interest and Mutual Confidence which bind a Pas Tor to his people must be strengthened by this Means. A a the Good Shepherd Callih his own sheep by 6. He must find time to receive Many visits. It can be seen at once that these can neither be anticipated nor classified. Besides those which will naturally arise from ones own sphere of personal acquaintance and a minister s parochial relations there w ill he Many from beyond those limits. In View of. Onte of these latter cases it is enjoined upon him in the scriptures to be a a Given to hospitality a and the interests of the Church require that the Bland spirit of this Vir the should pervade the hearts of iter ministers. Nuts find time to g vent me attention to mud or it Gion beyond the Field of his Linn labors the soul of a Chris a should he Large enough to embrace 1 Why h Christ expressed when he a a a Wor and in Adny like in in it Moie than a Var ready congregation ? no they will break Forth in longing for the worlds conversion and ii thus demands be made upon his time for correspondence and co operation with the existing societies will he not be constrained to yield to them t 7. He find time also to visit churches out of the City who May seek his Aid. Whether he be called to meet with an advisory Conn cil or to attend an ordination or to peach tin gospel occasions will often arise which will urge their claims upon his conscience and Leel nos with a voice which he cannot disregard. 8. Lie must find some time to perform pastoral duties among those in the City who Are not connected with any Parish. 7�?THere Are Multi a ides of tins class m this Metropolis. In time. Of calamity amidst scenes of sickness and death hey turn with new feelings towards a minister and request his presence. During the past years >1 my resilience in this City a considerable pro portion of my visits were paid to those who were not regularly connected with any place of worship. 9. He must find time to attend to the moral wants of i own family i it wire proper to to it Here it co Iii be easily shown that the Chil Iren of City ministers have sometimes been More than ordinarily m Gle cled on account of the absorbing proves Unal cares which Nave filled me a Eart of the father. Perhaps Uii have heard ii Aid As a soil of proverb that ministers children Are worse than others. Such a statement Annot be plausibly sustained unless the Field of observation be confined to the City. 7�?Tiie temptations of a City life not particularly counteracted by a parents care May account for Many cases of failure in the family government of a minister. Then something must be allowed or the fact that such a Case attracts special no a ice. It is undoubtedly True however that it die country be added to the sphere of observation the proverb does rot at All apply to the mud in which we live. But the exposures of children in a City life Are great and difficult May be a minister Here who has a family Mist take time to attend to their Heads Aini hearts must see to it that his House he not As lie House of Eli. Where though there were both Precept and example to Tere was no government no effective education and where there was a hinted a state of filial disobedience which brought ruin upon the father and shame upon Israel. I was going to say moreover that the minister must find time to take care of his health hut i need not proceed with my sketch of his duties my difficulties. I have said enough. A you an. Ready to ask no doubt a a who is sufficient for these tilings a i dare say that question lits heavily on the heart of your minister. Bui Iff tin9 if i mistake not you Are read to ask. 7 a a what can we do to Aid him How can we cooperate with him most effectually 7�?To that estion i will now briefly reply. 1. Ascertain his own plan of operation. In que re what division of his time he would make a what portion he would devote to his Privan and retired duties and what to those which Are Ocial and Public. I take it for granted that in has a plan. It would be impossible to realize Bis own Hopes or yours without one. A order is heavens first when that great statesman de Witt was asked How he accomplish so much he answered a by doing one thing a i the chief difficulty Winch a mint step m a Large City has to meet is the difficulty of carrying out his own plan of operation of Calculi ing in finitely on his hours of retirement. On Liis account he often fails to concentrate the energies of his mind in the freshness of its strength on any department of his labors. Sometime the consequences Are late bouts at night broken rest impaired health. There is no remedy but a systematic division of time which will Lead one to attend first to the things of first importance. I was struck some time aim with a remark of n or. Combe of Edinburgh respecting his Vish to America. He observed that the system a Meini habits to which he had been accustomed does not prevail Here but that lie found himself in company from Early in the morning until late at night. He soon became conscious of suffering from too protracted cerebral excitement. Which threatened to unnerve him. Lie in it obliged therefore to appoint his hours at noon for receiving Calls and on the Days when he Lee j lured to seclude himself entirely. In those Feu i words that w Riter has touched the seer t Cau a of Many a ministers premature decline in Thi country and has suggested the Only effect ii remedy. Let me say again ascertain your minister Plati of life and action and Endeavor to sustain him in it. It you have con to Den e in his conscientiousness. In his Industry and his Zeal commit All this to his discretion. While he is in his Oudy let not his faculties he palsied by his having reason to think that any complain of neglect Tor want of visitation for then he will not Enjo his visits because the duties of his study and i Home will not live been accomplished. If Yon have not Confidence in his judg rant in his love in his desire to be faithful let that be known and come to a speedy explanation. But in you have let his spirit calmly and Trust fully repos on your Candor kindness and co operative Atea 2. As 1 address those who know How to Pray i t me a a not be negligent to put you in re Mem a Ranee a of ibis duty As you desire the Prosperity of religion Here habitually to Bear your minister on your heart at the throne of Grace. Did not inspired apostles say a Brethren Pra for us a with what earnestness did Paul implore the prayers of the Church How much More do we need them i doubt not that i utter the desire of my brother s heart in this request of you on his behalf. Christ offered. It is not enough that you receive Christ Foi the single object of forgiveness or As a priest who has wrought out an atonement for you of Christ offers himself in More capacities than Thi one and you do not receive him truly unless you receive him just As he offers himself. Again it is not enough that you receive Christ Only a a priest and As a Prophet for All that he Leache Vili in to you a dead letter unless you Are qualified to understand and to obey it and if you think that you arc qualified by nature you m fact refuse his caching at the very time Iba you pro Ess him to be your the alter for he says a without Uio be can do you must r chive him for strength As Well As for forgiveness and direction or in other words you must Shmit to him As your King not merely to rub Over you by Bis spirit. You most live in con it ant depends pcs on the influence of his Grace and if you do so you never will Stop Short a any one Point of obedience but knowing tha die Grace of god is All powerful you will suffit no paltry i t in of is hat unaided human Gatun can do to Imi ind your ambition after the Glodic of a purer and a belter character than an earthly principle can accomplish you will enter a career of which you at this present moment see not tin cud you will try an ascent of which the to to Eminence is hid in the darkness of futurity thu chilling sentiment that no higher obedience b expected of me than what i cat yield will have o influence upon you for the mighty stretch of attainment that you look Forward to is no what i can do but what Christ can do in me and with the All subduing instrument of his Grace to help you through every difficulty and to carry you in Triumph Over every opposition Vou will press Forward conquering and to con Quer and while the. World know ctr not tic Power of those great and intimating Hopes Chiei sustain you you will be making daily protes in a Field of discipline and acquirement Whie Diey have never entered and in Pat Enec am forgiveness and gentleness Ami Charity and do love of god and the love of your neighbor Whid is like unto the love of god you a vol prove tha1 i Wora of Grace is going on in your hearts even a hit work by which the image you lost at the fail is overthrown the subjection of your heart. To what is visible and earthly is exchanged he the Power of the unseen world Over its every Al Feci Ion and you be filled with such a Faith aim such a love and such a superiority to perishable things As will shed a glory Over the who of your daily walk and give to every one o your doings the High character of a candidate or eternity. A Christ is offered to a7 of you for forgiveness the Man who takes him for his single object must be looking at him with an Eye half Shir upon the revelation he makes of himself. Look at him with an open and we fast eve and then 1 will Call you a True believer and sure i am that if you cannot avoid seeing him in the earnestness of hts desire that you should give up All sin and enter from this moment into All obedience. 77ue, and most True my Brethren tha Faith will s a pc you but it must be a whole Faith n a whole Bible. True and most True that they who keep the commandments of Jesus Shah enter into life but you Are not to shrink from an me of these commandments or to say because they Are so much above the Power of humanity that you must give up the task of attempting them. True and most True that he who Trust eth to his obedience As his , is shifting his Confidence from the alone foundation it can a est up it a. Christ is your Savior? 1 Call upon you to rejoice in that reconciliation which is through him i Call upon you not to leave him for a single moment when you engage m the work of doing these things which if left undone will exclude us from the kingdom of heaven. 7�?Take him along with you in o All your services. Let the sentiment Ever he upon you. That what 1 am now doing i May do in my own strength to the satisfaction of Man but 1 must have the Power of Christ resting upon the performance if i wish to do it in the Way that is acceptable to god. Let this be Sotir habitual sentiment and then the supposed opposition Between Faith and works vanishes into nothing life of a believer is made up of goo works and Faith is the animating and the Power work Imp principle of every one of them. The spirit it it i Christ actuates and sustains the whole course of your obedience. You walk not away from a Ini but in the language of the text you a walk in him a col. Ii 6. And As there is not one of your doings in which he does not feel a concern a my prescribe a duty for you so there is not one of them in which his Grace is not in readiness to nut id to right principle into your heart and to it a Tig it out into your conduct and to make your walk Accord with you profession so As to a a it the world see upon you without the Powei my the Efficacy of the sentiment within am Ems while Christ has the whole Merit of your forgiveness he has the w Hole Merit of you Sanc Iri eation also and the Humble and deeply fell a of 44 nevertheless not me but the re cd of god that is in me a restores to Jesus Johnst a 1 the credit and All the glory which be a Ong to him by making him your Only and your a erect Andy or entire and your altogether Savior. Choose him then Ray Brethren hint is the Captain of Vanir salvation. Ujj Rubuen or into it or hearts Faith Ami let him Dwel a onion rally there. Cultivate daily Intercourse my a growing acquaintance with . Of you a re in Safe company indeed when our fellow hip is with him 7�?Tke shield of his Nadia worship is Ever Between you and the jus ice i god and out of his fullness there goeth a a Distant Stream to nourish and to animate and it it strengthen every believer. Why should the dishing of human instruments so oppress and so discourage you when he is your willing Friend a Viten he is Ever present anti is at All times in readiness when he the same to Day yesterday my for Ever is to be met with in every place and while los disciples Here giving Way to Thi Power of sight Are sorrowful and m great heavy ices because they Are to move at a distance Tom one another lie my Brethren he has his Eye upon All neighbourhoods and All countries my will at length gather his disc Mph s into on eternal family. With such a master let us quiz ourselves like men. With the magnificence of Rusty before us let time with its fluctuations in kindle into its own littleness. In god is pleas do spare me 1 Trust i shall often meet with you in person even on this Side of the grave it it if not let us often meet in prayer at therner by scat of god. While we occupy different places on Earth let our Mutual intercessions for each other go to one place in heaven. Let the Savior put our supplications into one Cense find he assured my Brethren that after the dear my much loved scenery of this peaceful Vale As disappeared from my Eye the people who live in it shall retain a Waim and Ever tiring place in my memory and this mortal body must be sir etched on the bed of death Ere the heart which now animates it can resign its exercise it of longing after you and praying for you that you May receive Christ Jesus and so walk in him and so hold fast to the things you have gotten and so prove that the Lalmer i have had Unyong you has not been in vain that w Hen the sound of the last trumpet awakens us these eyes which ate. Now a Allied in tears May open upon a scene of eternal blessed Ess and we my Brethren whom the Providence of god has withdrawn fora Little while from one another a on that Day be found Side by Side it the High.

Rude and profane usurpers a ave had the holy places but dear to every devout heart in every land is Jerusalem once Fountain of Light once Tomb of the Savior the interest which is always Felt in Palestine most Forth in that extraordinary development he crusades. But the time of its deliverance had not then come. The destiny of Mahon pedant so had to be accomplished. That Des Itzy is now fulfilled.

Such is a probably the plan now on foot my who can doubt the perfect ability of the Christian Powers or even England alone to act of plish that object ? if is not improbable then hat we shall see this result. If such be the fact it seems Plain that two coi sequences will follow.

Another consequence will probably be a renewed Faith and Zeal on the part of christians. For is not Jerusalem the Centre of their history ? its ruins a Type of their weakness and its restoration a Symbol of their coming glory is not new Jerusalem the chosen figure by which he Prophet symbolizes the restoration of Mankind to their lost estate will not jew and Christian of whatever name and form rejoice in this revival of their ancient birth place ? the Banner of the Faith will be again placed on the ill top and the gathering of the nations chronicle.

A though All thy attributes divinely fair few Crft dlr glorious god declare pc if uric beams Superior to the rest o let thy goodness fairest be Boyse. The goodness of god is a subject of All others the most interesting to Man. And that god s Good we Are not left to conjecture from indications which May seem to authorize such a conclusion we Are not left to infer from premises themselves doubtful. The goodness of god is a truth so clearly revealed and so variously attested that we might with As much show of reason ailed to dispute the divine existence As to doubt the divine goodness. The we examine the subject the More clearly we discover that by every Mode of reasoning by which it can be proved that god is it May be establish a that he is Good. He who is god cannot but be Good goodness is essential to the Livim nature. Goodness is that which Sheds a Lustre on All the other attributes of the deity. Good a Ness is the character by which Jehovah Delight to make known it is his Kame am his Nair fits inscribed As with his own hand a ii every unit of his works. Whenever we turn Mir eyes innumerable proofs of this crowd upon it or vision. In the visible heavens above a in the Earth below around us and on every Side ave have the most indubitable and convincing proofs of Beneficence the Earth is full of tin riches of his goodness. If we Survey the differ Cut orders of animated beings their nature am circumstances their orders and usefulness the goodness of the deity is More apparent still 44 the eyes of All wait upon Hisiu and he a Teeth to All a portion of meat in due by specially if we contemplate our own we Trace his goodness goodness in calling u into being in placing us so High in the scale o neing in preserving our lives and supplying our wants in 44giving us richly All tilings Toen if we review the past and Trace the Way in which god has led us shall we not feel com polled in gratitude and in Justice too to acknowledge a a goodness and mercy hath Folio wet a is All the Days of our lives a but while a go it Good to it and his tender mercies Are Over All his works a there is one expression of his love which infinitely transcends All the rest Ami without which All the rest would be in vain to us. And this is so great that no combination of language can describe its magnitude so great so glorious that like die orb of Day it can Only be seen in its own Light. 7�?The oracles of god.�?7�?THere was a time when each revelation of the word of god hat an introduction into this Earth which neither permitted men to doubt whence it came nor wherefore it was sent. If it the giving of each several truth a Star was not lighted up in heaven As at the birth of the Prince of truth there War Lone upon the Earth a wonder to make Hei children listen to the message of their maker. The almighty made Bare his Arm and through mighty acts shown by his holy servants gave demonstration of his truth and found for it a sure place among the other matters of human knowledge Ami belief. But now the miracles of god have Censed and nature secure and unmolested is no longer called on for testimonies to her creators voice. No burning hush draws the footsteps to i presence chamber no invisible voice holds the ear awake no hand Someth Forth from tin obscure to write his purposes in letters of flame the vision is shut up. And the testimony is sealed and the word of the lord is ended and Thi solitary volume with its chapters and verses is be srum total Ohall for which the Chariot of heaven made so Many visits to the Earth Ami the son of god himself Tabernacle and dwelt among is. 7 ii truth which it contains once dwelt a divulged in the bosom of god and on coming Forth to take its place among things revealed the heavens and the Earth and nature through All her Chambers gave it reverent Welcome. Beyond what it contains the mysteries of tin future Are unknown. To gain in acceptation and currency the Noble company of Martyr testified unto the death. 7�?The general Assembly of the first born in heaven made it the Day Star of their Hopes and the Pavilion of their peace.

As this a scarcely civil and might appear like insanity a Lis next impulse was to Rush Dutoi the open air. And leave the hated sounds behind him. 44 by this too i feared to do a said he a a lest Odens might be Given so 1 it solved to endure the torture with the. Best fortitude i Coul i assume when to i distinguished amid the Din the soft dear voice of a woman singing in perfect time. She made no Effort to drown the voices of Hei my companions neither was she disturbed by their noisy discord but patiently and sweetly she Sang in Lull Rich tones one alter another yield 13 1 to the gentle influence and before the tune was finished All were in perfect Harmony. I have often thought of this Story As convey my an instructing lesson for reformers. T spirit that can thus sing patiently and Sweed it in a world of discord must indeed be of the strongest As the gentlest kind. One cat scar it Ltd ear his own suit voice amid the braying of a re Iti tude and Ever and anon comes the temp tation to than they and drown the voices that cannot thus he forced into per fee time. But tins were a pitiful Experiment the melodious tones cracked into shrillness would my increase the tumult. Stronger and More frequently come the temptation to Stop singing and let discord do it wild work. Bui blessed Are they that endure to it the end singing patiently and sweetly till Al join in with Loving acquiescence and Universal Harmony prevails without forcing into Sun is Sion the free discord of a single child. Jolln the muddle of the inti a inf try the scottish reformer Wotli Many o or Christian worthies fell into the hands of tin French and every Means was employed to in in hem conform at least externally to but so great was their Abhorrence of idolatry that the attempt was All in vain. One Day a Fin painted image of the Virgin was brought int the galleys where the prisoners were confined and a Scotchman was desired to give it the Kis of adoration. He refused saying hat such idol were accursed and that lie would Root touch it. 44 but you shall a replied one of the officers roughly thrusting it in his face and placing i Between his hands. Upon this he took hold of the image and watching his Opportunity threw it into tie River saying let our Ladie now save Hirsel sche is Lucht enough Flet Hir Leirmo to Swyre. The officers with difficulty saved their goddess from the Waves and the prisoner were relieved for the future from such troublesome import unities.

On perceiving the hut tie Captain knocked at the door whim the aged pious son of poverty made his appearance. His Beard and locks were silvered by old age while his countenance bespoke that inward peace which the world cannot give nor take away. A father a said the officer a show me a Field so that i can set my troopers 441 will presently if you will follow me a replied the old Man. After leaving the Valley about a Quarter of an hours March they found a Fine Field of Barley. 44 there is the very thing we wanted a said the Captain. 44 have patience for a few minutes a replied Bis guide a and you shall he 7�?They went on about the distance of a Quarter of a league further when they arrived at another Field of Harlev. 7�?The troopers dismounted Cut Down the Groin hound in up and remounted twile the guide looked on. When they were abort to depart tie officer said 44 father you have Given yourself unnecessary trouble in coming so far the Field we first saw was much better than 44 very True sir a replied the Good old Man a Blit it was not 7 his stroke says the author very justly goes directly to the heart. I defy an atheist to produce any thing to be compared with it. Surely he who does not feel his heart warmed by such an example of exalted virtue has not yet acquired the first principle of moral taste. A delightful understand that Captain Moore of the u. S.
