Defeat and Victory VIII. Christ's Love to the Church . IX. The Temple Cleansed DEAR READER — Holiness is the Palace wherein dwelleth the high King of Heaven, Bethink thee of thyself— poor, ignorant, sinful. Remember that thou hast no warrant at this door but by the King's grace. Put on thee thy court robes, and draw near in lowly reverence, expecting to meet with Him. Thou hast no key to unlock the Palace door, for it openeth only from within. Yet, fear not The King is ever gracious. Ask, and He shall give thee per- mission to enter. Seek, and thou shalt find. Knock,
 
and the King Himself shall open the door and bid thee welcome. CHAPTER THE FIRST. <€ty Itfnjj'g Command Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect" — Matt. v. 48.

But we may bring upon ourselves the penalty of those who neglect the commandment ; perhaps even the greater penalty of those who reject it ; or, possibly, the penalty of those who " despise " the word of God. But beside these are others, very different — earnest and holy people, who have a conscious shrinking from anything that hints at the possi- bility of perfection. It is to them inseparable from a perilous tendency to spiritual pride, that most miserable and loathsome of all pride. Cer- tainly none of us would like to hear a man say of Digitized by Google %%z ttfng'g Command
