Christian was asked on his return a couple of years later, "How did you get along with your religion out there?" "Oh, first rate," he said, "obody ever suspected that I was a Christian." Christ said, "If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me" (Luke 9:23.) Ac- cording to that definition, the young man was not a follower of Christ at all. The require- ment was not to take up the cross weekly, monthly, yearly, occasionally, or semi-occa- sionally, but "daily." That is every-day relig- ion. There is another scripture that brings out this same feature in a difierent way: "Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord" — not what you do on Sunday, but whatever you do on any day of the week. The distinction between secular and sacred is a device of Satan. All duties are sacred. Plowing corn is just as sacred as preaching the gospel. An anvil may be consecrated or a puipit desecrated. In many minds religion has been chiefly associated with sick beds and grave yards, and the great question has been, "How did he die?" Gar- field set us a good example when he informed the priest who wanted to pray with him to 306 DOCTRIE AD LIFE prepare him for death, that he did not need his assistance. He had made his preparation in life like the good Scotchman who, when dy- ing, declined the offer of his daughter to read and pray with him: "o, daughter, I hare thatched the roof in fair weather. I do not need to work in a storm."
