Paul's Contribution to Christianity.
Paul's name stands second to unnn
In the uniials of history. The story of
bis life Is of peionninl Interest.
I. His Birth, (v. 3cf. Phil. 3:17).
He was born la Tarsus of pure He
biew stock, lie could with legitimate,
pride boast of godly ancestry. It Is
highly Important that emit generation
should so live that no handicaps i
placed upon their children.
II. His Home Training. (3 :.").
Ills parents were pious people unit
caiefully reared him according to Jew
ish ManilnnU Mo-.t religious leader
spilng out oT such homes; for example,
Mose, Samuel, Timothy. Stent prin
ciples of Integrity were Inculcated in
him thus giving him strength of char
acter 1o Impress the world, lie wui
strongly attached to the peculiarities
of the Jewish religion. The heroes
which molded his life were such men
us Joseph, Moses, David, Isaiah instead
of Achilles, Hercules and l'lys.-cs.
III. Hid Education. (Acts 2:.",).
1 Ills Patriotism. He was brought
up to love his nation. He proudl.v af
filmed, "I am a Jew." Paul wns a,
nationalist of the true type. Children
should be taught lo love their nation.
2 A Love for the P.lhle The Scrip
tures were to him the very Word of
God. What was found written therein
was the final word for Htm. Loss of
love for the P.llile nnd implicit faith
therein Is a tragedy.
3--.ealous for God. (Acts 22:3).
The word zealous literally means "M
boll." Zeal without knowledge h bet
ter than no zeal at all.
4 Conscientious. His supieme aim
was to jiosve-s a conscience void of
offense. Conformity to the dictates of
conscience Is demanded. It Is the law
of life for every man that because of
the blight of sin the conscience neetW
to be taught b God's Word.
n-He Had a Trade. Fvery Jewish
boy, regardless of his father's wealth,
was taught a trade. It was n Miylng
among them that, "He who failed to
teach his son a trade, taught him to
steal." This would be a good plan lu
our modern days.
IV. His Conversion. (Acts 22:0-10).
1 On the Way to Damascus, (v. li).
He was the enemy of Christ and wasj
on his way to Damascus authorized to
bring bound such Christians as might
he found to Jerusalem to be punished.
While on this Journey he had time for
rellectlon and conscience began to
2 A Light from Heaven, (vv. 01)).
As this light burned through the sky
over him, he fell to the ground humil

thou me?" Cpon inquiry as to who
was speaking, the Lord declared that
it was Jesus of Nazareth whom he was
3 An Honest Inipi'ry. (v. 10). Ho
was willing to do what tho Lord willed,
to he was Instructed to go to Damascus
where fuller light would be given.
V. His Estimate of Christ. (Phil.
When ho camo to know Christ, ho,
counted all but loss lu comparison with
Him. He saw Christ as the supplier oft
righteousness. He who bus Christ and
Ills righteousness has everything worth
VI. His Transcendent Aim. (Phil,
1 Ills aim was to know the power
of Christ's resurrection, even that ho
might be made conformable to His
death and have fellowship In Ills suf
ferings. 2 He desired to attain unto tho
resurrection of the dead. This refers
to the first resurrection In which the
believers shall como forth from among
the wicked dead.
3 He pressed toward the mark. He
did not count that he had yet attained,
lie depreciated his present attain
ments, perceived the dignity of his
calling and pressed forward with nil
his strength in order that ho might win'
the prize. The conditions which tie-;
