feed bestows His blessing upon
man as man is willing to cooperate
with God. When the children of
Israel eame to the Red Sea the
Egyptians were pursuing them,
there were mountains ,on either
side, and the raging sea in front.
God spoke to Moses and said
"Smite the Water." Moses, eo-
operating with God, struck the
water and the thing that hindered
was removed: they were able to
go over the sea on dry ground.
God spoke to Moses again and
said “March around the walls of
Jerico every day for seven days
and they shall fall.’’ They moved
silently around the wall, no dis-
play, no weapons. Just cooperat-
ing with,God, obeying God. And
God removed the stone that was
hindering them from taking the
city. Had Moses not obeyed God
would the children of Israel ever
have entered the promised land?

God requires His people to re-
move the stones that are hinder-
ing them in their Christian life.
There are many stones that hin-
der the Child of God. Stones of
Carelessness, indifference, uncon-
cern, and worldiness. Cooperating
with God, man is able to remove
these stones. God does for us
what we cannot do for ourselves.
After the people had removed the
stone at the grave of Lazarus then
Jesus said "Lazarus come forth,"
When he came out of the grave
there was another task for the
people to do. Jesus said "Loose
him and let him go.” If there had
not been cooperation on the part
of man would Lazarus have been
raised from the $ead?
God wants his children to re-
move every weight and sin that
would hinder them from giving
their bast in His service.
Unconverted friend, there are
stones in your life today. The
thing that is hindering your ac-
cepting Christ as your Savior is
a stone Jesus came to seek and
to save that which was lost. No
one can take away the stone but
yourself. “Take ye away the
stone,” and let God come into
your life^ ,_

. very interesting bunk and not un
profitable for those who would
learn anything from the past ex-
periences of men and nations.
History has also been called
“the essence of innumerable bi-
ographies.” It is that, but it is
a great deal more. For there is a
corporate life of nations and
peoples, and that is something
more than the total of all the ex-
periences of individual lives.
All this is well illustrated in the
Old Testament story of the life
and religion of the people of Israel.
The story told in books of history,
poetry and prophecy concerns
chiefly the people as a whole,
their struggles and conquests, their
lofty conceptions of God and man
and their rise and fall.
kings and prophets stand out bold-
ly. But there are lesser character*
whese stories are illustrated in
striking action. Sometimes they
appear in a single chapter, or even
in a few sentences. But what they
were and what they did is there
with Indelible Impression.
There were prophets like Na-
than (II Samuel 12), who dared
to rebuke King David for his adul-
tery; Micaiah (I Kings 22), who
refused to say words pleasing to

It its strongly human quality and
makes its realism of such univer-

was a devoted husband and lover
like Elkanah, father of Samuel (I
Samuel 1). And there were crafts-
men like Bezalel who gave the
work of their hands in worship,

to the sanctuary cf the Lord.
But the biography of the Bible
does not concern only heroes and
hero worship. With honest real-

The Golden Text U: “The hour
cometh, and now la, when the true
worshippers shall wonihlp the bath-
er in spirit and in truth: for the
Father seeketh such to worship
him” (John 4:23).
Among the citations which com-
prise the Lesson-Sermon ia the fol-
lowing from the Bible: “Feed the
flock of God which ia among you,
taking the oversight thereof, not
by constraint, hut willingly: not
for filthy lucre, but of a ready
mind; And when the chief Shep-
herd shall appear, ye shall receive
crown of glory that fadeth not
away" (I Peter 5:2,4).
The Lesson-Sermon also includ-
es the following passage from the
Christian Science textbook, "Sci-
ence and Health with Key to the
Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy :
"If all who seek his commemora-
tion through material symboU will
take up the cross, heal the sick,
oaat out ovila, and preach Christ,
or Truth, to the poor,—the recep-
tive thought.--they will bring in
