Rom. 15:4-13^.

fOR whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our
learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures
might have hope. Now the God of patience and consolation grant
you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus.
That ye ma}^ with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father
of our Lprd Jesus Christ. Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ
also received us to the glory of God. Now I saj^ that Jesus Christ was
a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the
promises made unto the fathers. And that the Gentiles might glorify
God for His mercy ; as it is written, For this cause T will confess to
Thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto Thy name. And again He
saith. Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with His people. And again, Praise the
Lord, all ye Gentiles ; and laud Him, all ye people. And again, Esaias
saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and He that shall rise to reign
over the Gentiles ; in Him shall the Gentiles trust. Now the God of hope
fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope,
through the power of the Holy Ghost.

The Power of the Holy Ghost. BY REV. S. P. LOG, A. M Rom. 15:4-13^. fOR whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. ow the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus. That ye ma}^ with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lprd Jesus Christ. Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God. ow I saj^ that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers. And that the Gentiles might glorify God for His mercy ; as it is written, For this cause T will confess to Thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto Thy name. And again He saith. Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with His people. And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles ; and laud Him, all ye people. And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and He that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles ; in Him shall the Gentiles trust. ow the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Sanctify us, O Lord, through Thy truth : Thy Word is truth. Amen. Beloved in Christ : — The Lord Jesus, just before He departed from this world, said: "All power is given to Me in heaven and on earth." From these words we learn that power belongs preeminently and entire!}^ to God, and the very fact that He acknowledged that this power was given to Him, gives the same power to God the Father. God tlie Father and God the Son had all power, but remember,
 
this declaration was made in order to give strength to the command that followed: "Go ye into all the world, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the SECOD SUDAY I ADVET. 23 name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy dhost," and in that last phrase yon find that equally with the two persons of God — the Father and the Son  — power belongs to the Holy Ghost. This evening then I desire to call your attention to this power as men- tioned in the last words of our text : THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST. "ow the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost." The power of the Holy Ghost, as Ave find it in this text, gives us : I. One manuscript II. One mind. III. One mouth.
 
IV. One minister. V. One measure. I. Our attention is called here to one manuscript. ^'For whatsoever things are written aforetime were writ- ten for our learning, that we through patience and com- fort of the Scriptures might have hope." The manu- script therefore that the Holy Spirit has given us is the Book which I hold in my hand, the writings of old, the Holy Scriptures, to which the apostle refers when he says, •'Search the Scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of Me." Did you ever stop to think that this one Book itself is a dem- onstration of the mighty power of the Holy Spirit? — a Book that was Avritten in a period of fifteen hundred years — a Book that has sixty-six books in it — a Book that has been held down and burned by emperors and kings — a Book which has been forbidden to the people  — a Book which has been destro^^ed time and again, and yet, like the adamantine cube of old, whenever it was upset, came down right side up? This Book itself is a demonstration of the poAver of the Holy Spirit. There is more power in that Book than there is in creation; 24 - THE ETERAL EPISTLE.
