WODERFUL BODIES— GOD'S CHILDRE BY ROBERT STUART MacARTHUR The Spirit himself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are children of God: and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ. Rom. 8: i6, 17. The feet of the humblest may walk in the field Where the feet of the holiest have trod, This is the marvel to mortals revealed, When the silvery trumpets of Christmas have pealed, That mankind are the children of God.  — Bt. Rev. Phillips Brooks. Every inmost aspiration is God's angel undefiled: And in every " O my Father " slumbers deep a " Here my child.'  — Dscheladeddin. Tr. James Freeman Clarke. WHILE Jesus Christ is God's Son by a mysterious gen- eration, we are God's children by adoption, and re- generation and so are partakers of the divine nature. Let us not hesitate to say that we are actually begotten of God, and that his divine life is in the souls of all believers.

Ps. 89: 26. 322 ROYAL MESSAGES 11-17 And the voice which I heard was as the voice of harpers harping with their harps, and they sung as it were a new song before the throne. Rev. 14: 2, 3. Yes, music is the prophet's art; Among the gifts that God hath sent. One of the most magnificent! It calms the agitated heart; Temptations, evil thoughts and all The passions that disturb the soul Are quelled by its divine control. As the evil spirit fled from Saul, And his distemper was allayed When David took his harp and played.  — Henry Wadsworth Longfelioio. CHE gift of music is one of the divinest gifts with which God ever endows man. God and not man gives the key-note to all its harmonies. When our ear is prop- erly trained, we shall hear music in the flutter of a leaf,
