THE

CHURCH NOT IN DARKNESS.

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that DAY should overtake you as a thief.-1 Thess. v., 4.

A deep sense of the vast responsibilities resting upon a servant of God, prompts me to express the thoughts that stir my inmost soul. A fearful prospect lies before me→ a world slumbering on perdition's fiery brink,—a church drowsily proclaiming my Lord delayeth his coming-clouds, darker than ever have mantled earth's sky since the first beaming of Bethlehem's star, gathering along the horizon, -pent-up surges of desolation, fire, and blood, pressing against their yielding barriers-and beyond all the rest, the day of God, the mighty judgment, the awful destruction that awaits the ungodly, and the triumphant deliverance of the ransomed of the Lord. These are the scenes that rise before me-the visions that crowd my path in the busy whirl of human activity, or in the place of privacy and of prayer. These are the coming events that cast their shadows o'er my path, and the premonition of whose approach I read in the book of providence and in the Book of God.

The sword cometh-How can I hold my peace ? The Judge standeth before the door-How can I be silent?
