! THIS. ,
Men were estranged from God.
they avoided Him, they believed that
II e was eternally against them, so
they became haters of God. Only in
, tne lite and dead! ot Jesus count
1 men ever become convinced that
God is not against them, but that He
loves them and that He is on their
side. Only in being thus convinced
could man ever be reconciled to God,
only thus could he be induced to put
away his feeling of fear and believe
that God really cares for him.
First, the LIFE of Jesus served
to make men know that God was
sympathetic with them, and that He
had a friendly feeling for them. The
whole f e life of Jesus is a story
of love. From beginning to end we
see Him thinking, not of Himself, but
of others. "The Son of Man came
not to b0 ministtired unto, but to
minister." These, a v. 1 like words,
and what is back of them get behind
all of the sinner's defences. Sin is
powerless to maintain itself against
a love that ever give way in behalf
