Who Calls

EDITOR’S COMMENTS:

I, for reasons beyond my control, have this document in partial form; the top of the sheet, with scriptural citations listed, is mostly absent.

My great-grandfather used “professor” to indicate one who professes Christian faith, not one who teaches at an institution of postsecondary education.

I imagine that Jesus terrified the money changers at the Temple one day.  They, of course, had it coming.

THE FEAST OF THE MARTYRS OF ARMENIA

THE FEAST OF JOHANN WALTER, COMPOSER

THE FEAST OF THE SEVEN MARTYRS OF THE MELANESIAN BROTHERHOOD

THE FEAST OF TOYOHIKO KAGAWA, TEACHER AND EVANGELIST

I.

Who calls?  Jesus Christ, the Son of  God and Saviour–he who died for us all.  Give me your heart and follow me.  To all who come he grants his saving grace.

II.

Great as this is, it is just the beginning of the new life.  He has much to show us and teach us.

Not every act of professors is Christian–far from it. How learn?

(a)  Jesus gives us a great example and great principles–not a set of rules, for that tends of Pharisaism.  Follow him–live like Christ.

(b)  Righteousness.  Did he ever do an unrighteous thing?  “Which of you convicteth me of sin?”

(c)  Love governed all.  How compassionate he was with the erring!  Not one unkind, revengeful word or deed.  Whom did he slander?  Our courts guard us here.

(d)  He suffered wrong rather than retaliate.  It may be hard, but it is the best way out.

III.

Follow him and he will so transform your life as to make it sublime.  His steps “end at his throne.”  The only way there is to follow him.

Begin now and be true to the end.
