C., til old prophet, Hnggai, who had grown tired of hearing the people say, 'Th time is not come' for spiritual re covcry, stepped forth as a spokesman for God, confining his message to single theme, entitled 'The Neccs«it\ of Getting God's House in Order.' I On January 24 the entire race had! turned its attention to the rebuilding j of the temple. When the people re- i vivcd their zeal for the work of the Lord and for the Temple of God, the blessing of God came back upon the land. The old prophet's message at Jerusalem might have hnd some SUK- gcstive material for a message to Congress and our own day," Rev. Elliott said. Evening vesper service, 4:30 P. M.

BY NEWMAN CAMPDELL LAST SUNDAY we told the story of Jesus' birth. Today wo find Him a. grown man, preaching to multitudes of people, nnd call- Inc men to give up their work and follow Him. Two charming stories arc told In the Gospel or Luke of the time In between, when He was a child- The flrnt tells of the Baby Jenus being taken to Jerusalem to the Umplc. to be " the Lord," and a sacrifice made for Him. according to Jewish law. Now there lived In Jerusalem an old man whose name was Simeon, whose days were nearly done. But the Holy Ghost came- to him and told him that he should not die until he had seen the Christ Child. So Simeon went to the temple, and when he saw Joseph and Mary with the Holy Babe, he took Him up In his arms and blessed God md then said: "Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart In peace, according to Thy word, lor mine tycs have seen Thy salvation." Then there la the «tory which we told some weeks ago, about Jesus and His parents again In Jerusalem, and Joseph and Mary starting for home and missing? their Son. You remember how they found Him In the temple talking with the priests and how he couldn't understand why they were worried about Him, for He "was about His father's business." These were some of the things that Mary. His Mother, "kept In her heart." Mow when Jesus was a grown man and began preaching. He had at first no followers. But Jesus had been baptized by John the Baptist, who really was his cousin, and was sent to prophesy Jesus' coming. While Jesus was being 1 baptized by John, the Holy Ohoat had descended upon Him, and the hcnvcns had opened and a voice was heard to say. "This in my Dearly Beloved Son In whom I am well pleased." Now two men had seen this and they followed Jesus and lived with Him. Andrew was still another who had witnessed the baptism, Cotvttjht, 1958. Krne Patura Sindicitc, IK- and he was the brother of Simon. He sought his brother and tool-, him to Jesus. "When He saw Simon, he called him Cephas, or Peter, which means a rock or a stone, meaning that he was strong and reliable. Now Simon Peter and his brothers were fishermen, and a year after this meeting, they met Jesus again at Galilee. They had fished all night and were weary And discouraged. Jesus came to. the beach where their boats were anchored and He got into one of the boats and told Peter to row a little way out Into the sea. Then Ho talked to the people on the shore who had come to hear Him. He knew that the fishermen. His irtrnds, were tired and disheartened and He told them to row out further and to cost their nets Into the water. They didn't think It would do much good, but they did as He sold because they believed in Him. And behold, when they drew the nets In again they were .10 full of fish that they almost swamped the boata and they had to call to someone to help them. Peter was so overcome by this that he fell on his knees before Jesus and said: "Depart from me. for I am a sinful man, Oh Lord." He felt so unworthy to be a companion to the One who could do such wonders. But Jesus said: "Fear not; from henceforth thou ahalt ratch men." Whtn these fishermen had brought their ships to land, the story tells, they "forsook all, and followed Him." Jesus knew that these men, poor and uneducated as they were, would understand and be true to Him, and do the work Ho wanted them to do In the world. They obeyed Him unqutstlonlngly Do you remember the story of the rich young man who also wanted to live a Christian life? He camo to Jesus and asked what ho must do to Inherit eternal life. Jesus told him to keep the command- menu, "These things havo I done since my youth," sold the rten man. "Then," said Jesus, "sell all thou host and give to the poor." But unlike Peter. John, Luko and all the other disciples, this man was rot willing to "leave all and follow Him." He was not v/UUnR to .give, up his riches. So ho "went Borrow- fully away." Stirring Sermon By Woman Evangelist "What Think Ye of Christ?" Last evening at the Christian and Missionary Alliance Tabernacle, Mrs. Mary Nelson delivered a heart- stirring and convicting message on the above text. Her message centered around the subject, "Jesus on Trial" as each of the following testified concerning Him in the Scripture: Angel Gabriel--"--for He shall save His People from their sins"; angels--"a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord"; John the Baptist--"--for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world"; God--"This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased"; disciples ·"what manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him"; Mary and Martha--"But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee"; two men on rood to Emmans--"Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way--"; John the Rcvelalor--"-- the bright and morning star"; Thomas--"--My Lord and my God"; Judas--"I have betrayed innocent blood--"; Pilotc--"--I find no fault in him"; Pharisees--"Why cateth your Master with publicans and sinners?"; Caiaphns--"--he hath spoken blasphemy. What further need have we of witnesses"; Jesus testifies of Himself on the 'Witness Stand'-"I am the bread of life. "I am the living water. "I am the Truth. "I am the Way. "I am the Life. "I nm the Good Shepherd." Picture Program At U. B.
