Missionary Hymns of the Old TuatA
rnrnt. The Jewish people were called t& bo
missionaries to the other nations. The
I'&alter, their hymn book, is saturated
with the spirit of God's grace to the
world. Its dominant note Is the call
to come back to Cod,
I. A Call to Rcconnlzo God's Power
Man's first sin was to cast off God.
.Such abyssmnl darkness followed that
the race has gone on In Ignorance of
Its Creator and Itenefactor. The first
and primary need of the missionary
Is to get the heathen to know God.
They must come to know Him not only
as a mighty King, but as n personal,
tender-hearted being, looking out over
the worltl with compassion, desiring
to Mtvo and bless man, Ills only crea
ture In His image and likeness. Oh,
that the heathen knew Cod as their
true and great King whose mighty
power He desires to usu In salvation
and blessing to nil ! Let us make this
known to the ends of the earth!
II. A Call for the Nations to Return
to God (Ps. 07).
The central theme of this psalm Is
the universal diffusion of Cod's grace.
The order of thought In this psalm 1b
that which sluiil be carried out by the
Lord In the completion of His work of
grace In the world.
1. Cod's Ulosslng Upon Israel (vv.
1, 2). This blessing Is necessary In
order that Israel may be fitted to mnke
known God's way to the nations. This
grace will be poured out upon Israel
In the full coming of Pentecost. When
this grace la poured out there will be
such missionary nctlvity as has hith
erto been unknown. When Israel, like
her national representative Paul, shall
go forth In such power of the Holy
Spirit in witnessing for Christ, truly
nations shall to born In n day. That
which shall be manifested by Israel
for their Cotl-nppolnted task Is needed
by the church In her witnessing. She
needs tho Spirit of God to fit her to
preach the gospel to tho hcMhen.
2. The Convvrslon of the Heathen
(vv. .1-5). Thanksgiving will be given
for salvntlon offered and accepted.
Not only this, but there will be re
joicing In the experlenco of salvation.
They will rejoice In the fact now thnt
the great and righteous God rules the
earth. The uew-born snul rejoices In
knowing that a dispensation of Jus
tice tempered with mercy has been
ushered In. What gladness will bo In
tlit hearts of men In the day when
tl. Itestoratlon of Hlesslngs Upon tho
Kurth (vv. rt,7). When man cast off
God n cuiso was placed upon the earth
which limited Its fruit fulness. Imme
dlutely upon man's return to God this
curse will pass away from the earth.
Tho supremo obstacle to prosperity la
man's rebellion against God. Let tho
nations return to Cod nnd Ho will
send His blessing upon them. The
only wny to bring back pence and
prosperity Is by the preaching of tho
gospel. Man must he called buck to
God. The supreme need of tho world
Is not n league of nations, but a re
turn to Cod ; because Coil will remain
separate from the nations as long as
they are In rebellion against Him.
III. A Call to Recognize the Good
ness of God (Ps. 100).
Praise should go up to Cod because
Ho Is God. Doing God Ho crented U8,
sustains us and saves us. For His
unchnnglng mercy and goodness prnlse
should he continually ascribed to Him.
What Life Consists Of.
"A mun'u life consistent not In tho
abundanco of things which he pos
sessetb." In these words Jesus strikes
nt the populnr error of all ages the
belief that life consists In things. For
nothing are wo under dr-eper obliga
tion to Christianity than lor this, that
It corrects our easy views of life.
Since tho first mnn staeted heaven
(vard, there have been two conflict
ing Ideahi of life; one teaches that
life's values nre In the things we get
and keep; tho other holds thnt the
chief end of man Is to develop hlj
highest powers, to live In fear of. that
v.iileh Is beneath SUni, and in reverence
for Thnt which Is ubove him. Ilev. O.
