The Greek word, as tho Hebrew word, for "spirit" is tlie same as that for wind, which Is a natural metaphor to represent the splilt. Jesus himself so uses It in John 3: S. 1. It Is nn invisible power or which no one knows "whence it cometh or whither it goeth." But you cannot tell the euuses. which are beyond our reach. Even to-day. when wo iinv uatiy reports from the weather b no one knows where and when a s will arise. We see tho storm and mieciion, ami can tell with 'CR probability to what place it is going" and when it will get there. But for beginning and end wo know not whence It cometh nor whither It goeth. 2. But wo recognize it by its ef fects, in sound, In music, In forco, in inc. '!. It Is essential to life. I. It is nil-pervasive. o- u is very powerful. The air Is so powerful that even freo dynamite smlt- mg against It on ono side crushes rocks on the other. The other rinv air from nn explosion of dynailf swept, away nearly a whole village. C Yet It is very gentle und delicate, breathing around the rose, and gently touching the little child. The Symbol of tho Flame and Light. 1. It Is mysterious in nature, in effably glorious, everywhere present, m wingea, undeflled, and undo fllable, 2. It represents the healing power of the Holy Spirit, changing night into day. 3. It expresses this purifying power. It is n disease destroyer, a refiner or gold. 1. It symbolized the comfort, warmth, cheer, fresh lifo. Joy, poace, which tho Holy Spirit Imparts. r. Flro is the symbol of Intense en ergy and zeal. The Holy Spirit flllB the soul ylth glowing enthusiasms and unconquerable energy and zeal. .

Sn Spirit convinces of sin, of the ovIIb in tho heart. s Tho truth or this lesson nppllos to boys und girls ns well as to adulta. It Is said of the boy Jesus thnt "the grace or God" was upon him, while ho "waxed strong, advancod in wis dom and Mature, nnd In fnvnn win. Cod nnd man." John tho Baptist also was filled with the Holy Spirit evon from his lilrth. Children need thu Holy Spirit to help them to be good, nnd onablo thorn to be disciples of Johub. The gift of tongues was nu indorse ment of the command to dlsclplo nil nations, nn inspiration to oboy it, nnd a pointer to tho means. "Tho human tonguo, Illumlnntcd and sancitiflod by lire from tho Inner sanctuary, was nbout to bo the Instrument of the gos- iim s advancement." The Transformation of tho Apostles. -Ono effect of this gift of tho Holy Spirit upon the npostlos was a wondor. in cnango in them. It was almost ii uiiHiiguruuon experience. This Is tho power wo nood for our own giowth in grace, und in every good woid and work. Tho great need of tho church Is a fuller reception of this power of the Holy Spirit. Wo are too cold, too urruld ol deop feollng, too convention nl, not too pructlcul, but too Inclined to let our pi notice of good works bo barren of lovo nnd devotion.
