"Take Your Bearings" Is the

The sermon of ' Hilly" Sunday t the

That was the kind of a Ood Joshua
proclaimed a God who would overwhelm
them with astonishment as to the mighty
display of Hl power. Ro the people be
gan to stiffen up their spines and throw
back their shoulders and expect some
thing. "Faith" ts the biggest word In the lexi
con of a Christian. It Is the countersign
that admits you to the Inner circle of
power. Doubt and timidity are strangers
to a man of faith.
The man of faith is magnetics galvanic
energetic. The man of faith does not
droop nor sang In the middle. His enlhus
stasm Is as Infectious as the smallpox
or the laughter of little children. Faith
puts a song on his lips fire In his blood
cement in his backbone. He puts the
ball over the fence when there are three
men on bases the last half of the ninth
inning, two out and you need four runs,
and you are upl
Don't think that Ood has ever been all
in. He never has been and never will.
He Is not like a lot of people who can
spar well, but who haven't the punch.
He Is not like the people who cannot
produce the "sleeper." Ood never has to
go Into repairs,
"Ye have not passed this way hereto
fore" meaning, I take it, that everything
is now to be new different from any
thing they had previously known.
The people believed it, and soon there
was great commotion In the camp. There
was the busy hum of preparation. People
worked with a will. They talked with
glowing faces of the mighty Ood of
Jacob and what He was going to do.
They were looking for great things
far greater than ever. Yet they had seen
Most of them were children when they
came out of Egypt. They had seen the
destroying angel come through the land
and slay the first-born in every home
where the blood was not on the doorpost.
They had seen manna rained from
heaven every morning for forty years.

prayer and Its nonsense In our church

reverence and less frivolity more of a
desire to honor Ood than to give a concert!
"Ye have not passed this way hereto

weary sons of Jacob might take a long
look back and a long step forward. To
stsnd on new ground, he makes ail con-uliler.

But the man that Ood sends never tails.
Had the walls of Jericho been a mile
thick and ten miles high Joshua would
have gone against them with the same
boldness. He was not depending on his
soldiers, nor the priests, nor the weather,
nor the ranis' horns, nor himself, nor his
feeling, but the word of the living Ood.
The wUdemess-worn veterans are now
about to take the step that would make
them a great nation a people with a
God-chosen destiny a people under the
Almighty's especial care.
Before they set foot In that raging
river they had to do more hard thinking
than they had ever done. In years agon
they had done lots of foolish things Im
pulsively. That is why they had been
tramping forty years and nover reaching

If they had all been as level-headed as
Moses, Caleb and Joshua their Journey
would have ended In thirtr days, and
here they had been a generation In reach
'ng the place where they now stood!
And it waa all because thoy had not
tried to get anywhere!
The man Ood sent never fails.
Tne man who has no purpose In life
goes about tired because he does hts
climbing In a treadmill. He Is always a
zigzagger. And for every Inch of head
way, he goes a mile!
Without a definite aim, he will never
travel In an airline. The Lee goes

man who turns the world upside down

faults any mors than- he Is now, any more
than Ood Is to blame for the condition of
the church today.

"Frequently the lungs become diseased
by the extension of a catarrhal Inflamma
