In the sight of God there are two men, "The first
man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam
was made a life-giving Spirit. The first man is of the
earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heav-

GOD'S TWO MENF B MEYER SERMONSIn the sight of God there are two men, "The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a life-giving Spirit. The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heav-en." 1 Cor. 15: 45, 47. I want to speak now about these two men. The first man. God took the red clay and molded a man in His own image. See! that man is taking his nature out of the hand of God, so that instead of God being its center, he becomes his own center as he takes the forbidden fruit. Next, he is expelled, and in his expulsion from Paradise the whole race passes out. A legend states that as he and Eve passed out, Eve plucked a flower to take with her, but it withered as she passed the gate. At that mo-ment you and I and all our race passed out of Para-dise. Three things followed: the bead-drop of sweat upon the brow; the pang of travail for the woman; and death. The sweat of toil for man, pain through

which all the children of life are born, and the earth seamed with graves. Finally Adam begets a son in his own image; that is, every child born outside the gate of Paradise has a bias to keep outside, no bias to go back. And just as in England, when a man plays bowls upon the sward, each bowl leaving the hand has a bias to turn off the straight, so every one 73 74 GOD'S TWO MEN of US is born with a bias oflF the right. By our first birth we all inherit a lost Paradise, sweat, travail, death, and bias to evil. Now the second man. I see Him first driven by the gust of temptation as He too stands before the element of life. The first Adam was tempted by a tree, the second A am was tempted by bread. Just

as the first Adam rade self and passion his rule, the second Adam made the will of God His rule and said: " If God says I'm not to eat, I'll not eat. Man shall not live by bread only, but by the Word of God." So Milton was perfectly right when he made "Paradise Regained " turn upon Christ's victory over tempta-tion. See that second man. The bead^drop stands upon His brow also, for He sits by the well at Sychar, tired. The pang of travail is in His heart, too, for He bears the infirmity of man, and by His travail a new earth and a new heaven are born. He also tastes death. He dies. So that there is nothing in our lot as man, except the bias to sin, that He does not know. Look on yonder cross! The second man is dying. In yonder grave He lies, but from that grave He breaks and is the first man to rise. You remind me of Lazarus. But he did not enter into resurrection; he was simply a prisoner on parole, who went back to death again. But this Man in death and through death passed into resurrection; and if you want to know what you and your dear ones will some day be,
