Fourth of july at Danville Booster Kitchen Rand text Rev. 1.9. Your brother and companion in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ. We have heard much of the love Power and majesty of god but not much about his patience. Yet As we study the attributes of god in Jesus Christ or his dealing in the experience or the history of the world we see the extent of his patience. John the beloved disciple was on the Isle of Patmos for his Faith in the lord Jesus but he did not bemoan his hardship. He saw him who was dead and alive forever More and in this Faith wrote the wonderful Book of re a a lations. In the verse from which our text is taken we have three great thoughts Fellowship the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ the ties of relationship in the Home make possible the most sacred of All institutions the ties of Fellowship hold together All the fraternities of the world and Christian Fellowship makes possible the brotherhood of men. When this is fully recognized quot we shall beat the sword into Plo shares aim the Spears into running Hooks nations shall not lift up the sword against nation neither shall they learn War any Isaiah 2-i. When we have such Fellowship the profiteer will cease to be in the land and org sided capital and organized labor will Settle All claims in equity and peace. Such relationship is at the Root of the tree of the kingdom in the trunk and All its branches. That this tree was planted in the soil of Gethsemane watered in the blood of Calvary and broke into life on the Day of the resurrection is an established fact of history. That this tree is spreading its branches Over the entire world and that its leaves Are for the Healing of the nations is being recognized As history advances., the kingdom is Here and growing but often we think it is moving slowly. We have had our minds so much on the temporal Side of the kingdom that we have overlooked the patience of Jesus Christ. As we look at his growing manhood when he was toiling at the Carpenter s Bench thereby signifying toil we see the patience of the Labouring Man. _ As we see him endeavouring to Plant the seed of the kingdom in the mind of his disciples we see the need of patience for they were so slow in comprehending the lesson that he had for them. But he was patience. We see his toiling through the centuries to establish his Kindom in this world we see the dark Ages and think that All is lost but in patience he toils on. Then comes the morning of the reformation and the Light that awakens a sleeping humanity comes into View. The master knew that great bodies move slowly just As the great Oak takes years in maturing while the mushroom Springs up in the night. Such is the Law of the kingdom that it takes time to bring the soul to the Best state. One May be forgiven in a moment and the heart purified in the twinkling of the Eye but time is required to develop the Christian character. The child Falls Many Jimes in learning to walk but patience and Effort walking becomes a second nature unto it. So the Charistian should have that patience and make that Effort until he becomes a Christian of stability and living becomes a Joy. This requires patience but such is in the patience of Jesus. We have thought of patience or some Tatofi Glite just for the for Strong men but this is a mistake. It has the element of endurance like the Mother longing Over the wayward child. Such patience endures when All others have Given up All Hope. Or it is like the patience of god brooding Over a lost world never giving up so Long As life endures. There is one other element to be noticed and that is Hope. We live in Hope and when that is gone life is Only a dreary Drudge. But with Hope and patience we carry on. I have seen the wife care for the Man of her love when he had forgotten both Mother and children in the desire for Strong drink. I have seen that love and patience win Back to to Home the one that seemed to gone. This is patience. The fourth of july Celebration which is to be staged by the i. Amp i.
