Full Reward" as follows:
A great many people suppose that
after they have accepted Jesus Christ
as their Savior, made a public acknowl
edgment of Him as such and Joined a
church, that that Is all there Is to a
Christian life. Well, there Is something
more, that cornea by way of experience.

A friend of mine told me that he ac
cepted the pastorate of a church, and
when he preached his first sermon down
the aisle came an eld man, hobbling on a
crutch, and he aald, "I am afraid you
are going to make a failure out of this.
You're the first young man that has ever
been pastor here." (They thought that
success, was synonomous with gray hairs
and decrepitude and that youth and fail
ure were inseparably connected.) "But,"
he said. I listened to you and I'm going
I to help you." The pastor thought, ' Poor
old soul, what can vou do -to heln m.-
He said, "Four men c.tme to my home

then to 100, then to 200, S0J and 400. and
many a Sunday morning before he would
go Into the pulpit he would be ln the

knees they would pray, "Bless our minis

preach he knew there were 400 men that
would die for him and for Jesus Christ,
and while he was pastor of the church
over 1,200 pressed their way to the king
dom and over half of them were men.
Btrlkrs at the (runiblers.
I don't kaow what the power of the
ministers who have served In Omaha haa
been. I don't know what the power of
the men you have here now Is, but there
never was a man, there Isn't any now
and there never will be a man who will
serve you as pastor, but that that man's
power for Jesus Christ will be multiplied
if he only has a prayer behind him. But
a lot of you will go to church and ait
there and grumble and growl and go
home and pick the preacher and hla ser
mon as dry as you do the chicken on the
rlatter for your Sunday dinner and then
wonder why your church doesn't grow. I
wonder why it doesn't sink Into hell, with
a prayerless, beer-drlnkinir, dancing, card
playlng crowd like many of them have.
Sat Prenrhtngr for Money.
Oh, I can tell you of church members
that haven't come to this tabernacle ln
seven weeks, whS haven't lifted a little
finger or sweat one drop to bring old
Omaha to Its knees. Then whit right
have they to claim anything from Ood?
What right have you to walk up and In
sult God by tilling Him you are His child
when you have done all you can to pre
vent the success of these meetings? GoJ
pity such miserable people! It any of
them are here and have given me any
money, come up and I'll givo It back if
you want It. You can't charge me with
preaching for your mcney. If I was
working for some f Tow's pocketbook I
wouldn't throw as many rocks or thlr-teen-lnch
shells aa I do.
Why lh Tabernacle.
Paul says: "This one thing I do." I
tell you. I think that would be our state
of intud if we only realized that people
without Jesus Christ are lost. I tell you.
the church Is all wrong, by whatever
name or denomination she la known, if
she simply says. "Come and hear the
preacher preach and the choir sing, and
If you don't, why go to the devil." That
doctrine has paralysed the activities of
the earth. This is what I call going to
the multitudes, and I have never seen the
community that was willing to go into
their pockets to put up a tabernacle that
failed to get a blessing. I have had

You will agree with me. In closing,
that I'm not a crank; at least I try not
to be. I have not preached about my
first, second, third or hundreth blessing.
I have not talked about baptism or Im

here my creed would be. "With Christ
you are saved; without Him you are lost,"
Are you saved? Are you lostT Going
to heaven? Going to hell? I have tried
to build every sermon right around and
answer those questions and steer clear
of anything else, but I want to say to
you thla morning, in closing, that it Is
the Inspiration of my Ufa, the secret of
my earnestness. ,
"V Kaow Not the Hoar."
If John were here and I would Invite
him to preach, he would preach about
the love of God. If James were hero
and I would say. "James, will you
pray?" he would say "Faith without
works Is dead." James would aay:
"Get a move on you." James would
preach the Gospel of works. If Peter
were here and I would say, "Peter,
preach us a sermon," he would preach
about the Holy Ghost. If Paul were
here and I would say, "Paul, preach us
a sermon," and Paul would get up and
talk about the resurrection. He would
talk about Jesus when He comes to this
old world. I would say, "Luke, will you
preach us a sermon," and he would
talk along a similar strain, as you
will read It In Acts. Now, then, I say
to you. "Watch, for ye know not the
day or hour." In Revelations I read:
"Around about the throne were four
and twenty seats and I saw there four
and twenty elders sitting clothed in
white raiment, crowns of gold on their
heads, fl know some elders that won't
wear crowns unless they get converted.
They don't live In Omaha, these fellows
I'm talking about.) "I saw four and
twenty elders, clothed In white raiment,
on their heads crowns of gold, and they
cast their crowns at His feet." That's

David himself had been a man of high

David was faithful to all hla duties
