The Son o Man must suffer many thing . If any man will come afte me let him . . . take up his cross Read Luke 9:18-25. Jesus had long seen the cros against the sky mature--tin cross must come first--but HI went on to die for it. This morning that processioi of promise seems sadly haltec that hope so piteously postponed But we must not surrender it. 2 great hope is a priceless posses sion, but we have no right to en teriain it save as we are willin to lose ourselves to make it com true. H is no small thing to sub due the world or a soul--to th spirit of Jesus. But. every brav person who entertains the hop of a Christian world and makou, his life a way for the Master' Way is road builder for the Kin of Love. Hope marches on.
