Glories of God

One cannot read the story of
•esus in the Gospels without real-
izing how essentially the divine
ministry was of earth, as well as
>f heaven. It was not in class-
ooms, nor even in synagogues of
emote,' that the most distinctive
cachings of Jesus were given. He
alked with His disciples as they
ent through the fields, speaking
f the flowers, the grain, the har-
dest: He discoursed of worship in
pirit, and even announced His
mersiahship, as He sat talking
with a woman at" Jacob's Well
This was all as it should have
been in that time and place, in the
'.•enial outdoor atmosphere of that
iittle land of Palestine, in an age
that had not yet developed the
equipment, gadgets, and ways that
nave made life, religion, and edu-
cation more confined to walls.
TWO things were very real to the
Psalmists and Prophets—one
dence in nature. the^-mHVersg~B"
TTrnrrtTesTaTfon of law and order.
And the other reality, corre
•^ponding to this, but deeper, was
the law of God in the heart, the
ssurance of right and wrong in
ife and conduct.
It must be evident to any careful
observer thaf in all, or most; oi
this we have departed far from
the essential. Hebrew arid Christian
view -of. God and nature;
It is not the religion of the out-
of-doors, but the irreligion of st
much of the out-of-doors, th'a'
-mostly characterizes our modetT
How much in this, as in othe
things, we need to learn fron
. those who found a joy in God, an
a pleasure in His world, that few
today attain. So much of our lif>.
is an escape, rather than a discov-
ery and attainment. —~ ; —
