Out Of Faea*
In 11 Peter 1:1 we find these
words. But be that lacketh these
things is blind, and cannot aee
afar off. and hath forgotten that
he was purged from his old sin*".
The things to be remembered are
the seven graces of the Chris
tian (aith which torm a unity. I
Without a knowledge of these
graces il is impossible to become
a Christian, to remain a Chris-!
flan, or to grow into maturity as
? child of God Since these things
are so crucial in our Christian
experience, and since we are so
inclined to forge* them, it is rifUit
nulit that we be reminded over
and over again abou' the graces
faith, virtue, knowledge, tem
perance. patience, godliness,
brotherly kindness, and charity.
Sometimes it may seem that the
preacher and the church are say
ing the same things repeatedly,
but this U the only way to keep
tbe Christian takh alive Our me
mories play tricks on us. We re
member the hurts inflicted upon
us. but we I or gel the favors and
blessings bestowed on u? by
friends and by God Himself it
it so easy to lorgei the pit from
which we have been lifted: the
bottom rung ol the ladder from
which we have climbed: the
eternal things of our history to
which our faith and lives are
anchored. Somehow we must be
aroused to remember or else our
faith will become weak, and we
will become the victims of heresy
So much of our lives are out
of focus because we do not have
the right perspectives. The poet
Gray has said that distance lends
enchantment to the view. To ap
preciate the truth of this we must
have the proper focus on Hie.
Distance also creates indistinct
ness. delusion, and deception. Dis
tance can also shut out beauty,
iharmony. and meaning. The per
ison who has the greatest percep
tion of life is the person who is
in the middle of it. living at his
best. I sincerely wish that we
could cram more life into our
years just as we have been able
to add more years to our life.
As we withdraw from life we
lose the meaning of sight and
sound and purpose Much of our
haziness about lite is due to the
fact that we are out of focus
with life We are out of focus
with life because we lacking in

Would we not understand him bet
.ter if we knew what makes uj
iditfer: Too much of our think

it should be against ourselves. A
man who was true to his con
victions was quite unpoplar with
his associates. Such men usually

to know him" Another man
seems very selfish We say that
he might as well be out of the
world as to he in it. lor all of
his thinking and serving is untc
himself. This is the way he looks
from the distance. But come a
little closer to him. Enter lite
with him and see his tenderness
and concern for all whom he
meets: face life with him and
you will find that he is much
' better than he appears to be.
! It has been said that half of
j the world does not know how the
I other half lives This should not

we advance the better we see.
It was the lack of \ision that
caused the multitudes to be blind
to the person and teachings of
Christ. They saw no farther than
Bethlehem His birthplace, they
saw no farther than his parents
or '.be carpenter shop where He
labored If the) had drawn closer
to Jesus, in faith they could have
understood the depth of His love
and the truth of His claim. We
cannot blame anyone fur enamin
ing the Christian faith before em

would profit from such action.
Each person has the right of
choice in selecting material
things. The same is true
in the realm of the spiritual.
