ask this because you have not understood

"The Development of Power by Service"

talker and posessee a magnificent voice.
which could be heard throughout the length
and breadth of the great convention hall.
He aald: '
"Since I have listened to so many ad

pretty nearly all that I intended to say
there I little left for me to do: 'But I nm
'infinitely pleased to see that so many have

had running through my hend. Vn referring
to power In a spiritual ens let It be
remembered that we are not speaking of
steam, electricity and water power, but
of spiritual power, the power of Ood, which
Is greater than all of these. Man did not
create the gold or coal In the mines, but
hi duty was to disoover the latent energy
stored In them and In the wntorfnll. Man
develop only what has been placed there
for hi disposition. The power of Ood Is
not like the power of Niagara, because It
I inexhaustible. How much of this spirit
ual power have you developed? The de
velopment of power Is by service, which
grows by use. Latent power Is simply a
potentiality, service Is the dynamic force.
Niagara may In time wear sway In volume
and energy by the constant dlmunitlnn of
It force. But spiritual power cunnot be
diminished. The prevalent modern policy

what you have with nil your might. Ouo
may say, 'I have no power.' But use what
you have. Wc fail because we fail to use

truly great because of the development of
the small abilities they possess. The World

that which God ha given you to do. Do
the small work cloae nt hand, the oppor

Or. F.nton's Address.
Following Is the main portion of Dr.
'The Tower of Ood In Evangelism." Thee
are supreme word. Through them. throbs
the dlvlnest experiences of man, the passion
of Christ, the brooding love of God. To un
derstand them with the mind, experience
them In the h"srt. express them In daily
life, Is to give the church victory In Its
glorious struggle to bring the world to
the feet of Jesus.
Ther nre two manifestations of the
rower of God revealed and recorded In the
lible which hold within themselves all
others In the creation of the World end
Its redemption from sin. Ood has made
known His mighty power. Athwart the
wolterlng darkness of primeval chaos
echoes the divine voice, "Let there be
light." Worlds leap Into being, life ap-
Sears, lay hold on death, breaks Its bonds,
evelops, emerges at last In man the Image
of the creator, the one spiritual being In
whom all other form and creation find
their end and rcn-nlng.
"In the ! inning God." Thl Is where
the mind o: n an In Its noble quest for
truth must at lat tor and find rest. Here
In the story of the creation, whether told
In language of scripture or science, we be
hold unveiled the transcendant power of
the living God. He It Is who created the
heavens and stretched them out; that
spread forth the earth nnd that which
cometh out of It; that gave breath unto
the people upon It, nnd si'lrlt to them that
walked therein. Let us lift up our eyes on
high and behold who hath created these
things, that hrlngeth out their host by
numbers; He cillleth them all by name, by
the greatness of His nilcht. for that He
Is strong power, not one falleth.
Power of Mind and Will.
The power to create Is a power of mind
and will. If God had created a world such
as ours and left It to drift Into sin and
ruin. He would have proclaimed Himself
to bo other than good. The end or purpose
for which power exerts itself determines
the moral quality of that power. For one
to slay a fellov man out of revenge or hate
or gain I murder. But when a man slaya
his fellow In defense of home nnd right we
approve his deed and call him by the noble
name of patriot.
Now, the message of Christianity to the
world la this: God accept responsibility
for HI own creation. . Mnn I not simply
the curious expression of divine omniscience
or omnipotence. He Is God's child, breath
of His breath, life of HJs life. When man
slnH and suffers. God sorrows and suffer
with him. And In the glorious story of
redemption through the cross of Christ Is
set forth the manifold wisdom and power
of a Ood who Is love, who has a good pur
pose In His creation, and who Is still at
work In the world bringing that purpose to
a glorious consummation. In creation and
redemption we behold In Its completeness
the power and purpose of Ood.
"One God, one law, one element,
And one divine, far off event.
Toward which the whole creation moves."
The power of God I like Himself spirit
ual In essence. Unptlaed In love. It sym
bollxes Itself In the Son of Man, and siinds
through the world a message of rtnpe,
worthy Indeed of the awful majesty of the
rower of God In Evangelism.
We bve spoken of the power that cre
ated and formed the universe, that ex
pressed itself in the diversities and won
ders of living things, that reached Its
glorious completion In man, that sustains
by It Providence the universe, moral and
physical In It forward mnrch toward good
ends. Th wave of ocean sounding on all
shore beat out forever their message of
the power. The wild wind, roar their
paean of praise. The soft lephyra of spring
whisper the name of the Living God as
they klB the flower and scatter far and
wide it fragrance. The roll of river,
the sweep of clouds across the sky, the
upward rush of sap in the tree and grass,
the breaking of the springtime, the coming
of harvest, the tumultuous passions ot
man, the solemn hush of Irresistible death,
the r!t-e and fall of races and kingdoms,
the travails of organlied human life, the
terror Of earthquake and volcano, of flood
and famine, all, all proclaim the glorious
majesty of that power, vital and reason
ing, which with bowed heads and In hushed
acoents we name God.
And greater still I that power which
flows down to men through Jesus Christ the
power which we cull love. Out of this
primal fountain flows all love, but In Christ
we behold its full perfection. Listen to
the Voice that calls across the ages from
Calvary. How It reveals God and man!
LAYhat deeds and height are stirred by its
raccents of wondrous love. The greatest
marvel of divine power Is the Savior sent
from henven, who Is able to save unto the
uttermost all who come unto Him by faith.
Now let us turn to the particular appli
cation of divine power set forth In Our sub
ject. "In Lvangellsm.
Evangelism Is the telling of good news
which good new Is the announcement that
God loves men, that He has come to live
among us In the person of HI son, that
He has gathered Into His own bosom all
human slnst sorrows, failures, questionings,
needs, and that He has gone down Into
the tragic mysteries of death by the grim
way of the Cross; that He has returned and
breathes upon the world His spirit. Hence
forth no man need despair, there Is hope
both for (his world and the world to come.
When Jesus gave to His disciple the
great commission. He prefaced HI word
with thin statement. "All power I given
unto me in heaven and on earth." The
dlKclples were commanded to tarry In
Jerusalem until they should receive power
from on high. Years later the apostle dis
covered that the Gospel waa the power
of Ood unto salvation.
