CHRIST'S MIISTRY— CHRIST KOCKIG BY ROBERT STUART MacARTHUR Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. Rev. 3: 20. O Voice Divine, which I have sometimes heard Cleaving through darkness and the troubled night, Ring in my ears, break with Thy trenchant might The slumber of my soul. Speak Thy great word ! ot bread, not bread I ask, but to be stirred With that supremest sound which heard aright Means consciousness, security, and sight — A present heaven, not a hope deferred.  — Caroline Hazard. eOD will not violate the laws which he himself has es- tablished. He might break down man's resistance to him by displays of his power, but that is not his method. He stands at the door of the heart and knocks. He knocks at the door of faith, and hope, and love, and reason. With one blow he might shatter the door and destroy the whole structure. He will not strike that blow.

For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Matt. 12: 36, 37. ay, they do bear a blessing and a power Great words and true, that bridge from soul to soul The awful cloud depths that between us roll.  — Edward Rowland Sill. WORDS are important because they reveal character, and because of their influence on others. The only sin declared to be unpardonable, is a sin of speech; this is a remarkable fact. Speech is one of the grandest charac- teristics of human beings; it is one of the divinest endow- ments for good or evil. Words are verbal ethics. Just as our words reveal character, so Jesus Christ as the holy Logos, the divine Word, revealed the eternal God. God's
