Ah, my dear friends, you may depend upon it, I should not feel comfortable if I thought the atmosphere of this place was polluted with the stench of the creature in the enunciation of duty-faith, duty-prayer, and duty-praise. It would be my misery to think that your ears had been offended with those sounds which charm the ears of these who hug their chains of spiritual slavery, and persevere in their doing down to the burning beds of eternal damnation.

But look at that title, "children of wrath." Does this refer to God's wrath? Never! He loves with an everlasting love. But see! "The law worketh wrath." (Rom. 4:15) When the law comes home, it reveals the depravity and enmity of proud human nature. It proves me full of wrath, and my mind to be "enmity against God." Let us transpose the order of these words from "children of wrath" to "wrathful children." Do you say that is far-fetched? Look at that title in Ephesians verse 2: "Children of disobedience." Whose disobedience is that? Surely not God's! Such an idea is presumptuous and blasphemous. The disobedience belongs to the children, so does the wrath. They walk by nature in disobedience and enmity against Him. "But!" Ah! Here we have one of God's glorious "Buts!" "But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ." (Eph. 2:4,5) No matter how corrupt, depraved, or dead in sins the child of God may be, because of the everlasting, unalienable love of the Father, because of the superlative worth of the person, work, and intercession of the Christ of God before the throne, he must be sought, brought, and taught to know and delight in his position and privilege as a child of the Majesty of heaven.

"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holy day, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days." Blessed be God, we have a perpetual Sabbath in the person and work of Christ. See how Paul states this in Heb. 4:9, "There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God." While every other rest is disturbed this rest in Christ remaineth ever the same. "For we which have believed do enter into rest." It does not say we have entered into rest, though that is a blessed fact; but, we do enter into rest, or into a keeping of the Sabbath. What is this Sabbath? "Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matt. 11:28) When is this Sabbath? On Sunday? Yes, and on any day of the week He is pleased to reveal Himself to us. When He speaks home this precious command to our hearts, we do enter into God's rest, God's Sabbath, and we cease from our own works as He did from His.

If not born from above, we cannot see--we cannot understand--we know nothing at all about the kingdom of God. A man may be a bishop on the bench, a great one in the church, a wise philosopher, but if not born again, with all his knowledge and prestige, he is but a dead dog. He may dress himself up in gaudy attire and strut like a stage player before the gaze of wondering mortals, but what is he in the estimation of God? A mass of corruption-a garnished sepulcher. And that is true of each of us only as God is pleased to enrich us with the heavenly treasure of His grace in these poor earthen vessels.

"God is in the midst of her." "Her!" The Church, loved and elect before all worlds: the Church, fallen in the world, sought, found, recovered, lifted up in the arms of sovereign mercy. Ah! what a mercy to be lifted up experimentally out of my corruption, deadness, darkness, and desertion, to be washed in precious, atoning blood, clothed in the spotless and impeccable righteousness of my God and Saviour, fed with heavenly provision, and blest with the possession of a life which can never die, and which is known by groans Godward, hopes heavenward, and sighs Zionward.

If you have Christ you have the life. This life is yours through the death of your Covenant Head, Surety, Husband and Friend--that Blessed One Who holds Himself responsible for the salvation, preservation and glorification of His covenant people. What a blessed truth that is when it dawns upon the mind, and when revealed in its clearness by the power of the Holy Ghost. Responsibility! That is a word of solemn, somber import from many a pulpit to frighten religious changelings into a profession of that which they do not possess. But we delight in the glorious truth of shifted responsibility, and the blessed fact that we can never be shifted for a moment from the Responsible One.
