GOD'S JUSTICE— CHRIST'S EXALTATIO BY ROBERT STUART MacARTHUR

Behold, my servant shall deal wisely, he shall be exalted and lifted up, and shall be very high. Is. 52: 13.

Oh, Lamb, once slain, now seated on the throne Of glory underived, no more to die. Reign Thou in might, eternal and alone Let heaven, earth and hell thy rightful sceptre own. — Bev. Phineas Robinson.

I every great musical composition there is a diapason, a unitive^ a pervasive, a dominant, a concordant note. Jesus Christ is the diapason of the oratorio of the Bible. His name is the harmonious note in the glorious song of the ages. The score and the text were written by God through holy men of old. Throughout all the Bible the name of Christ echoes, and the glory of Christ shines. Through the corridors of Bible revelation the footfalls of Christ reverberate, and the music of his name resounds. Creation and revelation, art and science, song and story, reveal Christ; and learning and genius, and all earthly rulers reach their noblest heights when they bend in lowliest reverence at the feet of Jesus Christ, and crown Him King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. For God hath promised that to Him every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that be is God, to the glory of God the

Father.

Our Lord Jesus Christ, . . . the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords: Who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; Whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to Whom be honor and power eternal. Amen, i Tim. 6: 14, 15, 16.

298 ROYAL MESSAGES 10-24Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey the lusts thereof. Rom. 6: 12.

What profits it that He has risen, If dead in sins thou yet dost lie? If yet thou cleavest to thy prison. What profits that He dwells on high? His triumph will avail thee naught, If thou hast ne'er the battle fought. — Lyra Germanica.

a TRUE Christian will never allow sin to be his master; like Peter he may sometimes deny his Lord, but like Peter, if he have done this, he will weep bitterly over his fall. He will not walk in sin, nor give himself up to its power, nor be its slave. Sin may be in him, but he will not long be in it. If you know that you hate sin, and desire to master it, that you constantly strive against its presence and power, that you desire to gain the victory over every form of evil, rest assured that you are born from above, and that you are truly a child of God.

If you give evil thoughts no welcome, no quarter, you need not let them rob you of your Christian hope and the joy of divine Sonship. But guard, oh, prayerfully, guard your soul against indulging in known sin against God.

Who can discern his errors? Cleanse Thou me from hidden faults. Keep back Thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright and I shall be clear from great transgression. Amen. Ps. 19: 12, 13.
