Illshop I.lnus l'niker 1). !. of New
Orleans preached tho following sermon
nt the Pnlnc Methodist chapel Sunday
morning. Tho text selected was lh
first chapter gospel of St. John in .VI
We have In tills passage a very re-
markable exhibition of hillh nnd tn con-
nection with this exhibition or Tattli we
have m leas remarkable promise
mule by the Saviour. N'nthanncl'ft faith
had direct reference to the season and
character or Christ so that his confession
Is n very complete one IT you choose to
exemplify tho meaning of It when he
declared "Thou art tho Son of Ood
Thou art tho King or Israel" it em-
braces cveri tiling that had been thought
of in connection with tho character of
tho promise made by tho Messiah to
Xathannel tho ennracler as further ap-
pears was n promise of the son of God
lie was n King or prophesy fullllling all
ofllie OldTestamcnt'sdcclnratloiu. lie
wns theSnvlour or iuendlvlno ns well as
human I lie embodiment or all that wns
glorious all that was good. Tho con-
fession of .Vatlianncl standing hero Is the
first note that hnd been mado In refer-
ence to the person of Christ l'eter af-
terwards made that remarkable declara-
tion In nnswer to tho Saviour's
question "See )o that I nm". l'eter
answered. "Thou art the Christ that
is tho one son of tho living God." 'the
Saviour then told ltlin this wns n spir-
itual revelation; llcf.li and blood had not
dlsolosed it to him; It was the spirit of
the father that ennbied him to grasp tho
grcnt truth that ho wns Indeed the prom-
ised consolation of Israel. So afterwards
wo find In simpler language by Martha
at the raising of Lazarus but Xathannel
Is first in a profession of fnllh standing
ns It were In llio vestibule of tho gospel
history as tho most comprehensive nnd
substantially embracing record of tho
percon or Jesus Christ. It was also tho
personal espousal ofillsclplcshlp on the
part of Xathannel. Ho takes him ns
Ills Lord Jesm Christ personal de-
liverer guide nnd Saviour; n very bold
transaction In its personal relations ns
between tho disciple and ills Lord; n
comprehensive fnltli nnd their submis-
sion or Ills services nnd Ills heart tn the
Saviour or sinners.
Tills occurred nt the crisis or Xnthan-
nel's faith as disclosed by the narrative
though It was very Inferior to what
came afterwards. We find ho wns led
to Christ by the personal testimony of
a rrlend that Philip (as Xnthnnlel tells
tho story of his own convictions) told
him ho hnd found tho Messiah of the
prophets and simply gives him n brief
Invitation to come nnd see blin. That
the human testimony so far ns
Xathannel had of tho claims that
Christ made as the world's Saviour.
That would seem a very small ground
to accept a statement upon which would
hlngo nil our faith. Of course the testi
mony or other peoplo regarding the re-
ligion relied on nnd accepted Is only
worth ns much as the character of those
peoplo aro worthy. Still It Is woith
something ns testimony so Tar ns to lead
men to enquire for themselves that is
precisely what Philip's testimony did
for Xathannel Then It wns a very
reasonable thing wh he acceded to the
invitation to go and see. A man may
have doubts nnd disturbing convictions
In regard to this whole matter and vet
It is n reasonable thing that tho testi
mony or thousands and millions of good
people should so far Influence his mind
ns to lend him to examlno Into the mat
ter by fulfil and earnest endeavor to
reach the truth. That wns the ease with
tho woman nt tho well who told her
neighbors nnd friends that alio had
spoken with a man "who has told all the
things that I have done"
Thus Xnthanncl's conviction no doubt
wns deepened by tho evident knowledge
oflilm Christ had. ' Hero Is one whom
I havo nover seen before nnd vet hit
seems to hnvu looked into tho very depths
of my soul the man who penetrates to
tho very centro of my heart and under
stands my Innermost thoughts." Tliero
inignt liavo been something In t
Saviour's presence. I will not sav It w
a matchless form. I will not suy
iucic nu miauling in unit coun-
tenance that was godly or nnccllo
Tliero was something in that face that
gave commence nnmalintolilsdlsclples
There Is a progress too In Xnthnnnel'i
faith probably from the first declara
tlon. "Thou art the son or God. Itabbl
thou art tho King Israel." I note also In
this Instance of lalth what I llkotocall
the moral condition of faith. I aunnose
Christ drew tho character of Xathannel
ns an honest man one without guile
having regard to tho outward moralities
a man Honest through and throurrh.hnn.
est In his own convictions. In dealing
with the question that brought him into
relation with his own God how illiiienit
It Is for a man to bo thoroughly honest
In his convictions what a tendency there
Is to hide from their own eyes there Is
no uiurougii moral uonesiy in ucalln
with ourselves. Nathanael bail ht
moral condition of faith. Though a man
of prejudice wo find nil his prejudice
Yields to evidence. I reckon nn mm.
could have asked a question more singu-
larly than Nathanael when ho said can
anvthlniTKOOd come out or Nnznrcth?
It was so Inslgnlllcant a place so famed
for Its evil nnd limnoralltv It seemed
Incredible that the King or Israel the
eternal son who came to save sinners
should come from there. Nathanael
thought that such a thing could not be
and yet on this limited evidence Ids
prejuillco yields. In: throws aside all his
preconceptions "lib regard tn the prom-
ise of the Messiah anil simply siilimlts
to the evidence that Is brought to bear
upon them. It Is useless unless wo are
hunest In ourselves nnd transparent In
our purposes accenting tho trulli when
wo lindthn truo faith and will hen moro I
and moro remolo cxnerleiiee
Men who strugglu with tnmlcttons
aro desirous to II ml rest somewhere nnd
yet tliero Is n lack of this honesty w lib
those.nnd llnallv their strength deprived
aro lost of view. Without humility
nnd earnestness to seek ilMnc help this
Is the cause nf Inlldellty. In regard to
the great moral convictions that sweep
over our entire humanity from the min-
istry of God's cross mid spirit in the
world a man becomes honest nnd sincere
nltli himself. The master disclosed to
Xathannel what was In his heart of
hearts. Xathannel n man or habitual
prnjer desired to embrace the truth ns
It Is In Christ nnd threw hlineir pros-
trate nt tho feet of tho eternal ono for
light nnd illvlno help to enable him tn
perform his duties and guide III l j l In bis
struggles until he could seo for himself.
As Jacob struggled nt Hie brook nil the
night through Xnthnnnel's history was
n counterpart or that; It was tlio result
of prayer In secret tut the divino bless-
ing ft Is n slgnllleaiit fact that tho
praying spirit Issuroto receive. Tho
nan who calls upon God In Ids weakness
will receive strength tho darkness of
soul Is lining up Its hlnckne-s through
tho eye or God. Tho man that lilts up
his heart to God In his weakness so
soon docs God bend down In tenth mess
nnd Hoods his soul with light. You
will never havo tills unwilling assur-
ance; J on will never bu able to grasp
Christ usyourpersonnlSalour until you
have tho humility to call upon God for
help. Thcro is hero n refcreneo to
Jacob's vision that wonderful ladder
that was planted on tho earth and Its
rencneii iieuven: nero is me oniy
allusion lu nil the lllblu. tho Masters
n n words seem full of allusions to "nil
Israelite In whom there Is noiriiUe." It
Is the solution of the ladder I lie ladder
tvno ot Christ himself so the God man
Is the medium of communication tliero
shall bo between the Interval of tho
world and the hill of Heaven lie sajs
nit vou shall sen Heaven that It lulLiit
bo n revelation or the commencing of tho
eternal world. How much hangs upon
hat? Is thcro anything that we can
ntiicr uy our physical senses ns io tho
eetlnir snau nnd breadth of our human
destiny and experience. The Old Testa-
ment does not disclose this Idea. I sup-
pose tho Old Testament patriarchs w hen
they pnsseu awny iinu a uopooi niuiure
life but how-obscure! It was n mere

In the meridian nnd the light of Immor

Uirrlm paths In this world. The nates of
leaven 111 tho Old Testament were onlv
nlar nnd In tho Now Testament by Christ
they arc fully open bringing to 11 fu
great doctrines of life nnd Immortality.
A mero revelation oi a tuturu llio wouiii
not eauso us much comfort. There may
be n future life but there mar he trouble
there. o 11 ml trouble here may It not
ho a presumption that there may bo
more trouble there? Hut Christ opens
Heaven to tho lost sinner: tho sinner
through him may look up Into the rosy
portals of Heaven with tho assurance
that there Is happiness love nnd life for
him. I Imaglnotho .Master means that
Heaven shall ho open u-ivlng us the

A largo congregation tilled tho spacious

i nnllrinntlon of candidates as members

conducted the services and administered
the holy rite to 18 candidates. Of
these II were ladles and four were gen-
tlemen the clnss being ninthly coumoscd
Previous lu the (ontlrmallon services
the rite of baptism was administered to
six persons nil adults who hod mani
fested their desire to become members of
This baptism service wns one of uu.
usual interest owing to tho fart that all
Hut candidates bail reached the jonri of
maturity nnd wore prepared to assume
the duties of II To upon Ihelr uvvn re-
sponsibility. Another Incident that
added an unusual Interest to the oc-
casion wns the fact that of the six can-
didates who presented themselves live
were members of one family comprising
one whole household recalling to mini!
the baptism of Stephniiiit nnd others
mentioned Intlie lllble who with their
vvliole household confessed the faith nnd

bush upon Hie part of tlio largo congre-
gation which looked on with Intent In-
terest to witness Hie assumption of the
holy vows by the cnndldntes.
A feat tire of some Interest connected
with the services of Inst night was the
fact that among the candidates continued
wns n dnughtcr of that eelebated
old Texas hero whoso name is
Insepernbly connected with tho tale
nf the terrible strugglo for Texas liberty
In this connection It may not bo amiss
to say that ono or tlio members of the
