This Car Is Worthy
of Your Confidence
You can buy a Saxon car secure in the knowl
edge that you are getting full value in tried
and proven motor car mechanism.
Saxon cars are built to win the confidence of
their owner and they do. But first they
must win the confidence of their builders
and this they could not if they embodied any
feature or any part of unproved worth.
So no Saxon principle of construction has ever
been changed until a better principle has fully
proved its greater value. And so no Saxon car
has ever embodied features of doubtful worth.
Saxon cars have simply been in a state of
transition, passing thru phase after phase of
gradual improvement without a break in pro
duction. They are refined from time to time,
not radically changed.
They are In the fullest sense of the phrase, products of
evolution. They are developed rather than built.
Isn't that the kind of a car you want one that you
can feel confident is right before you put down your
good money for it? If It is, then you want a Saxon.

TEXT Restore unto me the joy of thy
salvation; and uphold me with thy frea
spirit. Psalm 61:12.
This is one of the best-known and
most highly praised Psalms of David,
which one has
called, "the mold
or experience of a
sinning saint who
comes back to God
in full communion
David, It must
b e remembered,
was a man at one
time in full com
munion with God,
even though e
so greatly sinned,
as this Psalm in
a sudden and
he committed the
gross sin of adultery, and then even
tried to cover over some of the effects
of it by being accessory to tho sin of
murder. Nevertheless, and because he
did really know God, his conviction of
sin in the premises nearly broke his
heart. Ills cry of repentance and ap
peal for mercy are recorded in this
Psalm, whose wall of sorrow and sub
sequent shout of joy have been heard
through all the ages bringing instruc
tion and comfort to many another sin
It is for this reason so instructive
for us to observe how David returned
to God. First of all, he. clearly and
definitely Judged his own sin before
God. This is expressed in the first six
verses of the Psalm where he cries out
for mercy, acknowledging his guilt and
pleading for a thorough cleansing from
Forgiveness and Cleansing.
In the next division of the Psalm we
see forgiveness and cleansing accord
ed him and secured on his part by
faith in the atoning blood. This is
expressed in verses 7-10, in the sym
bolism of the" hyssop, in the washing
of his soul until It is whiter than snow,
in the blotting out of his iniquity, and
in the creation within him of a clean

lie is fyied with the joy of salvation ;
he Is filled with power to teach trans
gressors and convert sinners; he is
filled with the spirit of service and
with the spirit of worship as indicated
In his overflowing praise, and the pre
sentation unto God of the sacrifice of
a broken spirit and a contrite heart.
Finally he Is seen In fellowship with
God and interested now, not so much
in things concerning himself, as in the
things that concern God. His cry is,

Zion; build thou the walls of Jeni-
The Same Truth in the New Testament.
One finds all the more encourage
ment to urge this because the same
truth, only put in another way, is set
before us again In the New Testa
ment. You will find it in the First
Epistle of John, chapter , I, verse 9,
where, addressing Christian believers,
he says, "If we confess pur sins. He
(1. e.. God), is faithful and just to for
give us our sins, and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness."
Because a man Is saved by God's
grace through faith in Christ, I. e.,
because he is a true Christian believ
er, Is not to say that he will never
again commit a sin against God. It Is
indeed his privilege, through the powei
of God's spirit dwelling within him, to
continually live a life of victory over
sin. and yet, like David, he may fall.
Under such circumstances, what Is
he to do? Has he lost out again? j
Has he utterly fallen never to be re
stored any more? Has Christ's sac
rifice forever lost its efficacy for him?
No, thank God, Christ, as his high
priest in heaven, ever llveth to make
Intercession for him. And now, like
David again, it is for him to judge
his sin before God, for that is really
the meaning of the word, "confess."
Let him do this, and he will find God
"faithful and just to forgive" him.
"Faithful" to his promise that means,
and "just" because Jesus Christ has
paid the penalty of his sin.
"Merciful and Just."
That word "just" la full of strength
and comfort for us. God is not only
"merciful" In forgiving the man who
comes to him through Christ, but he is
"just" in doing so. He is "just" be
cause' that man's sins have already
been atoned for on the cross, and it
would be unjust to Ignore that great
fact and to cast the man away.
This is a lesson for Christian back
sliders, and alas! there are many of
them in the church. Some of them
would gladly return to the father's
house, but they are timid and fearful
and so discouraged. Put let them take
heart again, for God loves and yearns
over them. The story of the prodigal
son in Luke 13 was meant for them.
That which he did insured a loving
welcome for him in his old home, and
so let them follow his example as out
lined in the-language of Psalm 51 and
I John 1 :9. They also will be met in
the same way, and know what It is to
have the old joy of their salvation re
stored unto them, because by grace
they will be cleansed from all unrighteousness.

LESSON FOR JUNE 3
JESUS BETRAYED AND DENIED.
LESSON TEXT John 18:1-11, 15-17. .
GOLDEN TEXT He was despised and
rejected of men. Isa. 63:3.
In teaching this lesson to some of
the younger classes, emphasis might be
placed upon the dramatic scene in the
garden of Gethsemane, and Peter's de
nial at the fire. In some of the inter
mediate classes the scholars might be
asked to write short, one-minute es
says, describing the scene as though
they, themselves, were present. For
the adult classes of course the central
theme is the way that Christ's follow
ers neglect him today even as the dis
ciples slept In Gothsemane, and be
trayed him like Judas or denied him
I. The Place of Retreat (w. 1-3). In
his emphasis upon the spiritual gran
deur of the deity of Jesus, John does
not dwell upon the agony in the gar
den. He, however, gives us that noblest
passage in the New Testament (chs.
14-17), the like of which cannot be
found anywhere else In the world's
writings. Having spoken these words,
Jesus and his disciples went over the
Brook Kedron (v. 1) to the garden,
there to bear the awful weight of
agony that was crushing him (Matt.
20:38), while at the same time he must
strengthen his disciples, and fortify
them against the coming trials. That
this place was a, place of frequent re
sort for Jesus, Judas was aware. It was
a sanctuary in which Jesus met the
Father, and those who knew him
knew it as a place of prayer, and the
most likely place to find him at that
time of night (v. 3). Rebuffed at
Mary's prodigality, Judas had consort
ed with the priests, and now covetous
ness is to reap Its reward. Judas was
not hardened In a day. His greed for
money, while at the same time listen
ing to the teachings of Jesus, had
gradually hardened his heart.
II. Protecting and Protesting (w.
4-11). (See Matt. 26; Mark 14; Luke
22). Jesus went forth in order to con
centrate the attention of the soldiers
upon himself, and to prevent a general
attack upon the disciples. In answer
to his question, they said they were
seeking "Jesus, the Nazarene," a term
of contempt which Jesus answered by
saying, "I am he." John adds, "and
Judas also which betrayed him stood
with them." Greed for money, grow
ing into theft and falseness of life,
ended with the blackest crime the
world has ever known. His salutation
sent them backward (v. 6). Perhaps
among the officers were some who had
failed to arrest him on a former occa
sion (ch. 7:46), and who were now
overawed by his marvelous words and
majestic bearing. Again he answered,
"Whom seek ye?" (v. 7), and ttiey
6ald, "Jesus of Nazareth," the same
words as before, but probably In a
changed tone, showing that they were
prepared to listen with respect, though
certainly not with reverence, to what
he might have to offer. What a dra
matic picture the brazenness of sin,
Judas who stood among the enemy,
and the fearlessness of virtue, Jesus,
facing his accusers. Augustine, com
menting on this verse, says, "What
will he do when he comes as a guest,
if he did this when giving himself up
as a prisoner?" nis act, however,
shielded his disciples, for not one of
them was to be lost (v. 9 R. V.), and
he knew they were not strong enough
yet to stand the test of arrest and
trial. At this point Peter attempts to
defend Jesus (v. 10). .
III. Peter Denying (vv. 15-17). As
Jesus was led away, his disciples for
sook him. They all left him, and fled,
but Mark adds that a certain young
man followed Jesus. It Is conjectured
that this young man was Mark. With
quickness of action we are now trans
ported to the judgment hall. There
we see him bound, with his hands
shackled behind his back, and led
first to Annas (v. 13), which was an Il
legal transaction, "as though some
reformer should be tried at Tammany
hall in New York" (Robert E. Speer).
Annas was now very old. From him
he was taken to Caiaphas, followed by
Peter "afar off," now in a different
mood than when he smote the high
priest's servant's ear. With him was
that other disciple (John's way of re
ferring to himself). Now John was
known to the high priest, and he went
In with Jesus Into the' palace, but
Peter was standing without at the
door. Notice the stops of his failure;
First, he "slept" in the garden; sec
ond, he followed "afar off" (Luke
22 :54) ; third, he "stood" without ;
fourth, he "sat" in the midst.
Then notice the denials, the last ac
companied by cursing. Attempts, to
compromise with the world meet with
the same measure of failure today as
when Peter was in the judgment hall.
Bad company Is a good thing to keep
out of unless gone into to witness for
Christ. Peter did not have that pur
pose. The Lord had only to "look" at
Peter (Luke 22:61) and he "remem
bered." We may deny Christ by ouf
silence, by remaining outside of the
church, by denying his existence, by
profanity, by ridiculing his friends,
by praising his enemies or by living
i life of worldllness.
