InK was taken (mm Luke v, 4, "Launch
out Into thu deep."
Christ, startliiK on thu campalKU of the
world's compiest, was selecting bin stair
ofllccrs. There weru plenty of students
with high foreheads, and whltu hands, and
Intullectual faces, and rellned tastes In
Homo and In Jerusalem. Christ might
havo callisl into thu apostleshlp twelve
bookvorms, or twelve rhetoricians, or
twelve artists. Instead ho takes a (roup
of men who had never made, a speech; never
taken n lesson In belles-lettres; never been
sick enough to make them look delicate
their hands broad, clumsy and lianl
knuckled. He chose fishermen, amotiK
other reasons, I think, because they were
plijslcally hardy. KovvIiik makes strong
arms and stout chests. Much clImbliiK of
ratlines makes one's head steady. A Guli
lee tempest wrestled men Into gymnasts.
Tho opening work of thu church was
rough work. Chrlstdld not want twelve In
valida hanging about him, complaining all
thu tlmo how badly they felt. Hu leaves
thu delicate students at Jerusalem and
Home for their motherland aunts to take
enro of, and goes down to thu seashoru and
out of tho toughest material makes an
apostleshlp. The ministry need moru cor
poreal vigor than any other class. Fine
minds and good intentions are important,
but there must be physical force to back
them. Thu intellectual mill wheel may I it
well built and the grist good, but there
must bo enough blood In the mill race to
turn the one aud to grind the other.

He chose fishermen also hccaUM) they
were used to hard knocks. Thu man who
cannot stand assault Is not fit for thu mill
Istry. It always has been and always will
be rough work, and tho man who, at every
censure or cifrlcature, sits down to cry
had better be at some other work. It Is no
placo for ecclesiastical doll babies. A man
who cannot preach because he has for
gotten his manuscript or lost his spec
tacles ought not to preach at all. Heaven
deliver the church from a ministry that
preach In kid gloves aud from sermons lt
black morocco covers! These fishermen
weru rough and ready. They had been in
tho severest of all colleges.
When they were knocked over t.y the
main boom of the ship they entered the
Sophomore, when washed off by a great
wave they entered the Junior; when
floating for two days w ithout food or drink
on a plank they came to the Senior, and
when at last their ship dashed on the beach
In a midnight hurricane they graduated
with the first honor.
My text finds Jesus on shipboard with
one of these l.roned men Simon byname.
Tills fisherman had been sweeping Ills net
In shoal water. "Push out," says Christ
"What Is the use of hugging thu shore ii
this boat? Ileie Is a lake twelve mile-"
long and six wide, and It Is all populated
Just waiting for the sweep of your net
Launch out it Into tliu deep."
The advice that my Lord gave to Simon
Is as appropriate for us all Ina.splilin.il
senso. Thu fact is that most of us ale jiil
paddling along thu shore. We aru afraid
to venture out into thu great deeps of 0 d
and Christian experience. Wo think that
the boat will bo upset, or that wu cannot
"clew down the mlzzen topsail," and our
cowardice makes up poor fishermen. I
think I hoar the voice of Christ command
Ing us, as he did Simon on that day when
bright Galilee, set in among thu green
hlllsof Palestine, like water flashing in an
emerald cup, "Launch out into tho deep."
