Faith and Confession.
BY CHARLES F. DEEMS, D.D., LL.D. "if thou SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THY HEART THAT GOD HAS RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, THOU SHALT BE SAVED. FOR WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVA-TION." ROMANS, X. 9, lO. There is nothing so much worth saving as a human being. To each man there is nothing so important as having himself saved. There is no philanthropy worth bearing the name that does not involve the saving of men.

Paul opens this chapter with, "Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved." The interest of our Heavenly Father in us bears on our personal salvation. The mission of the Son of God was prompted by this affec-tion. " Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." All who are in heaven, and all the good that are upon the earth, are deeply in-terested in our salvation.

Let us waste no energies in striving to be saved without understanding quite distinctly what is the occasion of our peril. Of this we may make ourselves sure, that we are not to seek to be saved frotn God. I mention this because I believe that there is a widespread mistake on this point, and men

harm themselves, and do great injustice to the Heavenly Father, by cherishing the feeling that God is their great enemy, or at least the great occasion of their peril. One of the direst of human mistakes is the supposition that God is the vast antagonist of Humanity ; that if we se-cure any good we must obtain it from our Infi-nite Enemy by violence or persuasions, or some appeasing sacrifices. Quite the opposite of this is the fact. In reality, we could not be saved if He were inimi-cal to us : and in the processes of salvation no one can help us as He can, and no one is so willing: and, when we are saved, no one in the universe has so great rejoicing. He never in-tends to injure us. He takes no delight in our being wrong or doing wrong. "God is love." He desires that we shall not be lost. He warns us that we must not lose ourselves. He does all that He can, without reducing us to mere ma-
