GOOD FRIDAY AND IIASTlHt.
Today tho hearts ot mon aro bowod
In humility ns thoy recall tho sceno
in that Friday ot long ago when tho
Soi. of Man hung suffering upon tho

tokoncd tho prico Ho was willing to
pay to bring about our Redemption.
God was In Christ roconcHlngfcitho
world to Hlmsolf, not because: ofwhy
OBtrungomont of Ills seeking, but bo
causo man had wilfully gono away
from his God,
On Calvary's Cross wo see tho
PRICE HE PAID, a price which n
olmlod shunio and misory and suffer
ing such as fow human bolugs havo
Imjoii called upon to suffor, and tho
hardost to boar was tho bunion of tho
sins of tho world, your sins nnd mine.
On Easter Morn our hearts turn
from tho scono ot sadness to ono of
Joy. God nccoptod tho sacrlllco of
His Son and Ilo roso-victorlous over
doath and holl, whoroforo "death no
more hath dominion ovor us:" It hns
lost its power nnd Us sting. Tho East

is risen." Therein lies our hopo of
immoritallty, o( our mooting again
