PILATE'S QUESTION. "What Shall I Do Jesus 7" Then With Kaeh Ona or Voo Will Ilarn to Auk and Answer For Himself That yiif-stlon— Sermon br Iter. T. DeWltt Tiil- mage, I>. U. Among tho sermons preached by Rev. Dr. Talmaga In England, the one selected for publication this week Is from the text: Matthew jcxvH. 23, "What •hall I do with Jesus?" Pilate was an unprincipled politician. Be had sympathies, convictions of right and desires to be honest; but all these were submerged by a wish to bo popular and to please the people. Two distinguished prisoners were in tho grasp of government, and the proposition was made to free one of them. There stands Barnbbas, the murderer; there stands Christ, the Saviour of the world. At tho demand of the people the renegade is act free, but Jesus is held. As the hard visaged and cruel eyed Unrnbbus goes among bis sympathizers, receiving their coarse congratulations, I'ilnte turns to MB other distinguished prisoner—mild, meek, Inoffensive, loving, self-sacrificing —and he is confounded as to what course ho had bettor take, BO he impanels tho mob as a jury to decide, saying to thorn: "What shall I do, then, with Jesus?" Oh, it is no dried or withered question, but one that throbs with warm and quick pulse in tho heart of every man and woman here. Wo must do something with Jesus. Ho is hero. Yoa and I ore not so certainly here as He is, for He fills all this place—the loving, living, dying Christ—and each one of as will have to ask and answer for himself tho question, "What shall I do, then, with Jesus?" Well, my friends, there are three or four things you can do with him. You can, in the first place, let nim stand without a word of recognition; but I do not think your sense of common courtesy will allow that Iio comes walking on such a long journey, you will certainly give Him a chair on which He may sit He is so weary, you would not let nim stand without somu recognition. If a beggar comes to your door, you recognize him and say: "What do you want?" If you meet a stranger faint in tho street, you say: '•What is the matter with you'.'" and your common humanity, and your common sympathy, and your common senso of propriety will not allow you to let Him stand without recognition—tho wounded One of the hills. You will Sflk: What mokes Hiin weep? where was Ho hurt? who wounded Him? whence camo He? whither goes lie? I know there have been men who have with outrageous indifference hated Christ, but I know very well that that is not what you will do with Jesus. AnQttaR -thing you can do with him— you can thrust him back from your heart and tell him to stand aside, i f an inoffensive person comes and persists in standing close up to you, and you have In various ways given him to understand that you do not want his presence or his society, then you ask tho reason of his impertinence and bid him away. Well, that is what we can do with Jesus. He has stood close by us a great while—ten, twenty, thirty, forty years. He has stood close by you threo times a day, breaking bread for your household, all night watching by your pillow; He has been in the . nursery among your children; Ho has been in tho store among your goods; He has been in tho factory amid tho flying wheels, and now if you do not like His society you can hid Him away; oye, if He will not go you can take Him by the throat and tell Him you do not want His interference; that you do not want Ilia breath on your check; that you do not want His eye on your behavior. You can bid Him away, or if He will not go In that way, then you can stamp your foot, as yon would at a dog, and cry, "Begonel" Yet I know you will not treat Jesus that way. When Pilato could not do that, you could not Desperadoes and outlaws might do so, but 1 know that la not the way you will treat him, that teat ia not what you 'ill do with Jesus. TOicre is another thing you can do with Mm—you can look on him merely as an Optician to cure blind eyes, or an artist to tune deaf ears, a friend, a good friend, m helpful companion, a cheerful passenger on shipboard; but tjiut will amount to nothing. You can look upon him as a Qod and be abashed rouses the storm, or blasts a tree, or heaves a rook down the •fountain side. That will not do you By good; no more save your soul than ae admiration you have for John Mil- ou or William Shakespeare. I can think of only one more thing you can do with Jesus, and that is to take Him into your hearts. That is the best thing you can do with Him; that is the only sate thing you can do with Him, and may the Lord omnipotent by spirit help me to persuade you to do that A minister of Christ was speak- big to some children and said, "I will point you to Christ" A little child rose In the audleno« and camo up and put her hand in the hand of the pastor and said; "Please, sir, tako me to Jesus now, I want to go now." Oh, that it might be now with such simplicity of experience that you and I join hands and seek after Christ und get an expression of his benefuotion and his mercy) You may take Christ into your confl- dence. tt you can not trust Him, whom can you trust? 1 do not offer you a dry, theological technicality. I simply ask you to come and put both feet on the "Rock of Ages." Take hold of Christ's band aud draw Him to your soul with perfect abandonment and hurl yourself into *Se deep sea of His meroy. He comes and says, "I will save you.". If you do not think He is a hypocrite and a liar when He says that, believe Him and say: ***<ord Jesus, I believe; here Is my heart Wash it Save it Do it n m, Ay«, It is done; for I obey thy promise ant tome. I can do no more That U all ^hou hast asked. I come. Christ is mini Pardon is mine. Heaven is mine," Why, my friends, jou put more trust In everybody than yoa do in Christ, und l» everything; more trust in the bridge . crossing the stream; in the ladder up to tfta loft; more trust to tho stove that jsonflnei the fire; more trust in the cook th>t prepares your foodi more trust in tt»M*rk that wrlto|your books; in the ,^'wttapti>» medlolne;- in mm wlth-wjgom jo* CbrUt, although bestsndi this tlon. universal pardon to all who want it Now, is not that cheap enough—all things for nothing? This is the whole of the Gospel as I understand it—that if you believe that Christ died to save you you nro saved. When? Now. No more doubt about it than Unit you sit there. No more doubt about it than that you have a right hand. No more doubt about it than that there is a llod. If you had committed five hundred thousand transgressions, Christ would forgive you just as freely as if you had never committed but one; though you had gone through the whole catalogue of crimes—arson, blasphemy and murder—Christ would pardon you just as freely, yon coming to Him, as though you had committed only tho slightest sin of the tongue. Why. when Christ comes to pardou a soul He stops for nothing. Height is nothing. Depth is nothing. Enormity i» nothing. Pro- tractcdness Is nothing. O'er slm like muiitiitihis u.r ttn-lr size, The sens of Boveretirn irrtice expand 1 lie HOUR nf sovereign Kriii'* 1 arise. Lord .Jesus, I giw up all other props, give up nil other expectations. I'.uincd and undone. I lay hold Thee. 1 plead Thy promise-. I lly to Thy anus, "Lord savo me, I perish." When the Christian commission went into the army during the war there were a great multitude of hungry men and only « few loaves of bread and the delegate of tho commission WHS cutting the bread and giving it out to- wounded and dying men. Some one came up and said: "Cut thoso slices thinner or there will not bo enough to go around." And then tho delegate cut the slices very thin and linndcd the bread around until they all had some, but not much. Hut, blessed bo Cod, there is no need of economy in thisOospel. ltread for all, bread enough and to bparc. Why perish with hunger? Again, I advise you, as one of tho best tilings you can do with Christ, to tako him into your love. Now there aro two things which make us love any one Inherent attractiveness and then wht> he does in the way of kindness toward us. Now Christ is In both these positions. Inherent attractiveness—fairer than the children of men, the luster of the morning in his eye, the glow of the setting sun in his cheek, myrrh and frankincense in the breath of his Hp. In a Heaven of holy beings, the best. In n Heaven of mighty ones, the strongest, in a Heaven of great hearts, tho tenderest and the most sympathetic. Why, sculpture has never yet been able to chisel his form, nor painting to present the flush of his cheek, nor music to strike his charms; and the greatest surprise of eternity will be the llrst moment when we rush into his presence and with uplifted hands and streaming eyes and heart bounding with rapture, wo cry out, "Tills is Jesus!" All ov^r nlorloUM Is my I.onl, He must be lovnd utirt yet tutored; His worth, It all the nutiotiH kuew, Sure, tin* whole enrih would love lilm too. Has He not done enough to win our affections? Peter the Croat, laying aside royal authority, went down among the ship carpenters to help them, but Russia got tho chief advantage of that condescension. John Howard turned his back upon the refinement* und went around prisons to spy out their sorrows ond relieve their wrongs, but English criminals got the chief advantage of that ministry. Hut when Christ comes, it is for yim and me. The sairillee for you aud me. The tears for you mid me. The crucifixion for you and mo. If I were hopelessly in debt, nnd some one camo and paid my debts and gavo mo a receipt in full, and called off tho pack of hounding creditors; if were on a foundering ship, and you came in a life-boat aud took mo off, could I ever forget your kindness? Would I over allow nn opportunity to puss v> itboiit rendering you u service or attesting my gratitude and love? Oh, how ought ive feel toward Christ, who plunged ii to the dopth of our sin and plucked us out? Ought it not to set the very best emotions of our heart into the warmest— aye, a red hot glow? The story Is so old that people almost get asleep while they are hearing. And yet there ho hangs—Jesus tho man, Jesus tho God. Was there anything before or since, anything to bo compared to this spec taele of gonorosity and woo? Did heartstrings ever snap with a worse torture? Wore tears over charged with u heavier grief? Did blood ever gush, in each globule the price of a soul? The wave of earthly malice dashed its bloody foam against one foot, the wave of in fernal malice dashed against his other foot, while tho' storm of God's wrath against sin beat on his thorn-pierced brow, and all the hosts of darkness with gloaming lances rampaged through His holy soul. Oh, soo the dethronement of Heaven's Klngl thu Conqueror fallen from the whlto horse! the massacre of a Godt Weep, ye who have tears, over the loneliness of His exile and tho horrors of His darkness. Christ sacrificed on tho funeral pyre of u world's transgression the good tor the bad, tho great for the mean, the infinite for the finite, the God for the man. Oh, if there be in all this audience one person untouched by this story of the Saviour's love, show me where he is, that I may mark the monster of ingratitude and of crime. If you could see Christ as He is you would rise from your seat and fling yourselves down at his feet, crying: "My Lord, my light, my love, my joy, my peace, my strength, my expectation, my heaven, my all Jesus! Jesus!" Oh, you can not love him? Do you want more of his tears? Why, he has shed them all for you. He has no more. Do you want more of his blood? ' His arteries were emptied dry, and the iron hand of agony could press out nothing more. Would you put him to worse ex- t.-el thy sacrifice! Groan again. Put the four fingers and the thumb of thy wounded hand upon them that the gash In tho palm may strike their soul and thy warm life may bleed into them. Groan again, O Jesus, and sea if they will not feeL Oh, what will you do with such a Christ as that? You have got to do something with Him this morning. What will you do with Jesus? Will you slay Him again by your sin? Will you spit upon Him again? Will you crucify Him again? What will you do with Him who has loved you more than a brother's love, more than a father's love, yea, more than a mother's love, through all these years? Oh, is It not enough to make the hard? heart of tho rock break? Jcsusl Jesus! What shall we do with thee? 1 have to say that tho question will after awhile change, and it will not be what shall we do with Christ but what will 'Christ do with us? Ring all the bells of eternity at tho burning of a world. In that doy what do you think Christ will do with us? Why, Christ will say: "There is that man whom I called. There Is that woman whoso soul I importuned. But they would not any of my ways. I gave them Innumerable opportunities of salvation. They rejected them alb Depart, I never knew you." Itlesscd bo God, that day has not come. Halt, yo destinies of ctcrnl ty, and give us one more chance. One more chance, and this is it Soma travelers in tho wilderness of Australia a few years ago found the skeleton of a man and some of his garments, and a rusty kettlo on which tho man had written or scratched with his finger nail these words: dying of thirst My brain is on fire. My tongue is hot God help me in the wilderness." Oh, how suggestive of the condition of thoso who dlo in the wilderness of sin through thirst We take hold of them to-day. Wo try to >rlng tho cool water of tho rock to their ips. Wo say, "Ho, every one that thirstethl" God, thy father, awaits thee. Ministering spirits who watch the ways of the soul bend now this moment over this immortal auditory to see what wo will do with Jesus. I'HE LATEST NEWS It Climb* Tree* and Haa Other Remark, able Attributes. An account of a curious pig comes from Australia. A Mr. Le Mortcmorc, living at Seriana creek, Queensland, has lately shot an animal which he describes as a sortof tree-climbing pig. For number of years wild pigs have been numerous in that locality, and his theory is that tho original or common pig has been changed, partly by the necessities of his wild lifo, into the variety ho has discoverd. The captured animal weighs about a hundredweight and is pretty fat, with bristly brown fur, small black spots, snout and cars like a pig; but tho jaw is furnished with front teeth like a rodent, and has also largo canines and powerful back grinders. Tho fore feet aro furnished with hook-like claws, but the hind OHCB with only two hooks on each hoof. Tho tail is thick, about a foot long, and highly prehensllo, and in a state of rest it is usually ewrled by the animal In what Is known as a 'I'leinlsh coil.' A Flemish coll, I believe. w>mew.hat resembles the figure 8. This last item about tho now Australian pig is impressive. It shows that this pig's ideas about the proper arrangement for a tail aro novel and striking, and that ho must liavo do- voted some attention to the subject This Australian animal has other peculiarities. It is furnished with a pouch, which it appears to use for carry, ing a supply of food while traveling or migrating to fresh pastures. "In drought the animal climbs trees, and hangs by its II while it gathers its food by its hot • tlaws." Mr. LoMortemore intends ensnaring more of theBO pigs. He declares that the flesh is excellent, "resembling veal and ham pic." A pig that climbs trees, carries his tail In a Flemish coil and his dinner in a bag, and whose flcBh furnishes veal and ham pies, is certainly a novelty, even in Australia, the land of novelties. —Harper's Young People. jruolation?
