THE RIBUEJMCTION. > The month at April would be a very thoughtful time for ear people. It h • Msoon filled with holy memoriae which com* crowding In upon us freak these early days. It should alee be an occasion at sacred joy aa we medi tate oa the victory of tbs Lord Jams over death and the grave; (specially so when we knew the triuatph was not for himself alone, but He wea the flgbt for as too. Hk resurrection U a Pledge of oars, for He said. -If I Kve ye than live also." every weu. iou re tell bow certain wean— want to tba tomb at that early morning hear, aad did not Had tba Heater bat aeaee angala Instead, who laid than that Ha waa not there bat bad ariaan. Tbaao woman in tan informed tba dladplas ef their enparleana Two af thaaa naan, John and Simon Peter, ran ta aaa for thamaalvea, aad foond tba empty tomb and the tinea clothes and the angels, but no Christ. Now Mary of Magdaia stood weeping near the sepal char. After talking with tba angala aka waa taming away whan tba gardener addressed bar to knew why aha wept. Sbo told him that aha ■ought her Lord who had bean borne •way. The man than called her aama and aha discerned that Ha waa Jeeaa. and aha waa AUad with joy at finding Him. Again ha appeared to two men and after aralktag to town in their company Ha sat dawn to sap per with them in the avowing. With in the next few day a all the dlafiplm bad seen Him aad believed, even Thomas being eawvfaead whan be saw his hands and kia aide. •a _ .s s . jvn «T«* wiuufm wnii tD in portent part this hope of ths rarer roction plays oven la tka everyday UfeT While wo ar« baay about oar tasks thsrs la a sort of undercurrent of fooling, a restful foaling that all is wall. Thousands of people- would give up tomorrow H they thought this life ended ths Maty for«j*., Man would say, "What to the usaT AM of my toll and sacrifice era In vela. Why should wo suffer for the truth If there is to bo no life af'er this? The gams is not worth the candle." But this hope assures us of a success ful outcome for our labor; it gives us the victory over sin and the grave. Too many of us look no higher than the grave. There is nothing to in spire us there; nothing else quite so dismal; no pleasant memory is as sociated with it. Cover it arith grass and flow era if you will, bat after all It sear* the fair earth, and it robs os of all wa hold dear. But the hope of the raanrreetioQ promises that ths grave is set the. goal «f Ufa, and this hope wa have la the risen Christ. la the resurrection is seen ths dig appointment of ala sad the triumph of truth, from the boor of the erod faloa until the dawn of the fast day of the week aln appear ad te hare the mastery over earth and heaven. May be Satan stood that night an pinnacle of tec temple, and cried sot, “All there things are mine, and victory over the Christ aa wall.” Hew they must hare celebrated their ceaqnset ht boll daring that Jewish Sabbath. But theft- song of triumph did not last long; before sun-up ft was known In hell teat Jesus bad arisen. Our hope lies than in Christ, sad in Him alone, fey If Bo did not arias wa are tea most pitiable of afl eras tares having put our faith la a dead Lard who cannot save us. Wa would stfll bo ia our tins, and weald die there, and pass out Into tea region of loot things into the realm of the forgotten. Bnt the Christian ia sot miserable; on the contrary ha la hap py, foe ha knows whom he has be Uwred, and ia persuaded test Christ is abU to keep that which Is com mitted nnto Him agelmit teat day. We do not fight aa those who beat tea air in maanlnglcae and frantic ef fort, but wo con toad with the eor taioly of faith in ultimate victory. The light of Kaster morning falls upon the cress and makes It flm ban con light of tbs ages; It falls span tea wonts of tea Bible and pots n new meaning in them; It falls on tea path way of the Christian and tells him, "There ia a Uf» Shore, unmeasured by thn Bight of yearn, sad a* that lift is tore.* I A Gmcta.
