Phrase that which we find ight in the middle of the espitle o the Romans. Set like rare gem in a crown of purest gold. "Into the glorious liberty of the children of God". An exalted conception of the christain faith. Considerthe re- markabale change that had ta- ken place in the life of paul sin- ce the day when he persecuted the people of the way. The thing which he formerly despised he s now extalling in the highest language. Compare also this lofty op- inion the narrow conception which so many have today when they think of religion. To many to day think of the Christain religion as prison limiting res- trictions, a threatening, A threat- ening system of "Thou Shalt Not's'. To Paul after the scales had been removed from his eyes, it appeared quite different. seemed to him as tho someone had led him fTom a dark dismal cell with it's opperssive environ- ment, out under the open skies, where he hears the song of he birds, and catches the fragrances f the flowers, and breathes the purest of air. TKere stands the Apostle, looking out over the land, standing upright with his arms out streched, saying to all come into that glorions liberty. Moral slavery: Many boast of freedom, of personal liberty, who tho ignorant of the sad fact are spiritually bound. The worst of slavery is not that which fastens chains on a man wrist, but that which fetters amans will, cur- tails his naturalaffections, and i limits his powers of usefulness. Self forged chains of self indulg- ence rod men of liberty. There are no chains so binding, so :   Ird tbreak,  as  the chain of evil habits. Paul knew this fact. was it not who cries, "O wretch- ed man that I am, who will de- liver me from the body of this death??" A cry from the lowest deeps of slavery . . . A hopeless plea for deliverence. The emanciuator: It was the misery of the human bondage that touched the heart of God, and led him to send forth Jesus the one able to break the bonds- of sin. Standing in the synagog of Nazareth with the propecy of Isaiah before him, Jesus read these words. "The spirit of the Lord is upon me because he hath anointed me to proclaim liberty to the captives, and to the open- ing of the prison of them are bound." If there are any still today who look upon the christian re- ligion as something small, narr- ow, and restricting, let him read again those words. "Into the glorious liberty of the children of God". That which we embody in the though of religion is nothing short of the coming Christ into the prison house of sin bearing to all who will receive it the glad tidings of a reprieve. It is a leading forth into something better, higher, and more satisfy- in_g. It is an entrance into a glorious liberty, a .fellowship with the children of God, a walking into the love and grace of Christ. Liberty not license: I need not remind you that liberty has no fellowship with license. It is al- ways and every where liberty under the perfect law of christ. Witness the pilgrims irt serch of liberty binding themselves together by common law., For the common good and appending their name of the compact and declaring unto all we promise all due submission and obedi- ence.

It is right here where Christ steps in for his law is perfect. Religious christain religmn is a sarching for Jesus Chrsit in ones life. and then fitting one's self into that law of God, Into harmony with those laws on the road to liberty in Jesus Christ- only, he is the only of the world. Adavancement is made only when man is willing to tinder strict obedience to that law of God and his demands in one life. If there is to be any spiritual advancement it must come this way.: By a willing obedience to the perfect moral law of God. And the law of God is perfect, converting the soul. The supreme law of the spir- itual world as revealed by Jes- us Christ is the golden rule... The matchless law of love. God though christ m even now be- seeching man to understand and obey that law. He is inviting us to step out of the stifling prison of selfishness into the glorious liberty where everyth- ing is pure, lovely, and of good report. Christ pleads today for our soul and life in service to him do not reject this love of God, but accept it. Repent of sin and turn to Christ Jesus. Rev.
