FAITH THE PATH TO GLORY.BY ALEXADER MACLAREHe shall come , , . to be marvelled at in all them that believed. — 2 Thess. i. lo.That is to say, they who on earth were His, consecrated androted to Him, and in some humble measure partaking evenhere of His reflected beauty and imparted righteousness, — these are theyin whom He shall be glorified. They who "believed" : poor, trembling,struggling, fainting souls, that here on earth, in the midst of many doubtsand temptations, clasped His hand ; and howsoever tremulously, yet trulyput their trust in Him, these are they in whom He shall *' be wondered at."The simple act of faith knits us to the Lord. If we trust Him, He comesinto our hearts here, and begins to purify us and to make us like Himself;and, if that be so, and we keep hold of Him, we shall finally share in Hisglory.What a hope, what an encouragement, what a stimulus and exhortationto humble and timorous souls there is in that great word, "In all themthat beheved" !

Choose whether He shall be revealed and thelight of His face be to you like a sword whose flashing edge means destruc-tion, or whether the light of His face shall fall upon your heart, because youlove Him and trust Him, like the sunshine on the Alpine snow, lifting itto a more lustrous whiteness, and tinging it with an ethereal hue of morethan earthly beauty, which no other power but an indwelling Christ can
