THE BETTER WAYREV. B. CARRADIE, D. D.I seeking a location for a house, a man prop-erly desires the best location. In like man-ner we prefer the purest air rather than a malarialatmosphere. We want the best water, food thatis not adulterated, and clothing that is not shoddygoods. In all this, one need not be selfish ; forthere is abundance of pure air and water andeverything else for us all. It would be a matterof astonishment to all if a man, having a choicebetween good and better, should prefer that whichis inferior. The astonishment would arise fromseveral reasons — one cause being found in thereversal of the universal practice of the race.ow, it is certainly surprising that, while menpractice the rule of securing the best in thephysical realm, they should act in a contrary man-ner in spiritual things, and be satisfied with alesser grace and blessing when something farsuperior is theirs for the asking and seeking.6 The Better Way.When a young man once said to me, "I wantall that God has for me," he might have added,"and the best that God has for me," and stillspoken the truth and that which would have beenpleasing to God.That a child of God should hear of this supe-rior grace, and live on contentedly without it, isa matter of amazement to the writer. The veryrumor of such a grace should agitate the heart,
 
inflame the soul with longings, and set one totraveling in that direction.If the rumor of gold in California created aperfect exodus toward the West, if a star led thewise men from vast distances to seek the Savior,how is it that we, as God's children, can remainwhere we are in the spiritual life, when the wordto-day is flying from lip to lip, that there is adeeper peace and joy than is realized in regen-eration; that a sun has arisen instead of a star;that a pearl of great price instead of a box of treasure is to be possessed? In a word, that a" Better Way ?> is open for the believer to enterupon and walk Zionward w T ith joy upon thehead, and sorrow and sighing fled away fromthe heart.If there is such a better way, the Bible willOpening Words. 7have much to say about it. And this is just whatwe have discovered. Both the Old and ewTestaments abound in allusions and direct teach-ings in regard to the grace. The Gospel preparesthe soul for it, and closes with the exhortation tothe disciples to "tarry" for it. The Book of Actsis a record of how Jews, Samaritans, Romans, andGreeks entered upon this better w&y. The epis-tles evidently regard regeneration as an initialand transitional grace; that we are not to abidethere, but sweep on to something higher andholier and better.With this thought in the mind, we ran our eyesthrough the Scriptures for expressions and state-ments which would confirm the fact.
