THE PROMISE OF JESUS TO HIS DISCPLES.BY REV. A. LOCHMAN d. d. TEXT.— Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world— Math, xxviii. 20.

He found they were sorely distressed, because they were soon to be deprived of his visible, per-sonal presence. Especially so, in view of the diffi-culties and trials to which they would be exposed as individual christians, and the dangers and persecu-tions they would be called to meet, in preaching the gospel of the dispised Nazarene, whose doctrines were to the polished Greek's foolishness and to the Jews, a stumbling-block.

We may all lay claim to its fulfill-ment. I. We direct your attention to the person ivho gives the assurance. When a promise is made to us, a great deal de-pends upon the character of the person who made it. We naturally inquire, can we rely upon and trust his word ? We have often been deceived in
