It is very fit, therefore, that pious men should call him the holy child Jesus. Acts iv. 27. The angel who foretold his birth to Mary said, ''That holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." Luke i. 35. From the first, Christ's whole nature was pure.

He never made others give up their rights for him. If all the world were as just as Jesus Christ was, there would be a speedy end of all strife. III. Jesus Christ was hi7id. His heart THE HOLY CHILD JESUS. 7
