Story Of Delilah
Feature At Baptist
Continuing the series of Sunday
evening sermons based on great
women of the Bible, Rev. L. G. El
liott, pastor of the First Baptist
church, will speak on "The Woman
Who Wrecked a Man's Life." This
sermon will feature the service for
Sunday evening at 7:30.
Other women may illustrate
woman's highest nature, her beau
tiful and saving influence over
men. her power to stir the ambi
tions, to produce deeds of heroism,
valor and power and even to launch
a thousand ships; but this woman
illustites another power which is
just as real. Delilah influenced
Samson with her power of evil, and
stripped him of his strength and
power The Bible holds the mirror
up to life and in it we see the story
of this beautiful but wicked wom
an. The public is cordially invited
to attend this service, especially
young men and women who are

HIGHLIGHTS ON THE SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON
(The International Lessen on the above topic tor March 14 is
Acts 20.-17-3S; Epnesians 5:6-21.)
By NEWMAN CAMPBELL
ANCIENT PALESTINE, today
the scene of riot and worse as
Arab and Jew contend for the
possession of that Holy Land, was
torn with religious differences in
tn days of the Apostle Paul.
Paul, whose magnificent letters
known as the Epistles to the
various congregations he had
founded, are a grand contribution
to the New Testament, became a
prisoner of the Romans as a re
sult of a religious riot in Jeru
salem. Though he felt certain that
persecution and Imprisonment lay
hi wait for him at the end of his
journey, the great missionary set
out from Miletus, historic Med
iterranean seaport In Asia Minor,
for Jerusalem. This must have
been Paul's last missionary Jour
neythere being no evidence of
a later one.
En rout to Jerusalem Paul
stopped over in the city of Ephe-
the Lord Jesus, to testify the gos
pel of the grace of Xtod."
"And now, behold, I know that
ye all, among whom I have gone
preaching the kingdom of God,
shall see my face no more." Paul
was loved and admired. He was
a very real "tower of strength"
to these early Christians. Imag
ine, then, how sad they must have
felt when they thought of him
going Into danger, possibly, even
very probably, losing his life, and
visiting them no more to cheer,
advise and help them hi their
trials and discouragements.
He warned them of differences
of opinion that would arise with
in their ranks to draw disciples
away from them, and cautioned
them to watch for signs of same.
"And now, brethren, I com
mend you to God, and to the word
of His grace, which is able to
build you up, and to give you an
inheritance among all them which
are sanctified, I have coveted no
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever
(Mags are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever
things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever
thing are of good report: if there be any virtue, and if there
be any praise, think on these things." Philippians 4:t.
sua, and it is on the words that
the great missionary spoke to his
followers there that our lesson
for today is based.
At Kphesua Paul summoned the
elders of the church to him. They
were the duly appointed officers
Of the Ephesian church, although
we do not know who they were
nor how appointed. When they
had gathered he reminded them
of his work among them, telling
how he had served "the Lord with
all the humility of mind, and with
many tears, and temptations,
which befell me by the lying In
wait of the Jews." The Jews who
would not accept his Gospel, ac
cused him of all sorts of what
they considered heresies, where
as, Paul says, he was "testifying
both to the Jews and also to the
Greeks, repentance toward God,
and faith toward our Lord Jesus
Now, he told these friends, "I
go bound in the spirit Unto Jeru
salem, not knowing the things
that shall befall me there: Save
that the Holy Ghost witnesseth
In every city, saying that bonds
anc afflictions abide me." None
of the things that he feared
moved him from his purpose;
even his life he counted not dear,
only that he hoped he might "fin
ish my course with Joy, and the
ministry which I have received of
man's silver, or gold, or apparel.
Yea, ye yourselves know that
these hands have ministered unto
my necessities, and to them that
were with me."
Then Paul kneeled and pray
with these friends. They Ail
"wept sore," and accompanied
him to the ship that would take
him once more to Palestine.
We do not know If he ever
went to Ephesus again. There is
no record of such a return visit.
He was a prisoner when he wrote
his epistle to the Ephesians, set
ting forth what the life of a
Christian should be, instructing
and exhorting them.
"Have no fellowship with the
works of darkness, but rather re
prove them," he writes. Wake up
those who are sinning so that
they may "walk In light," a beau
tiful phraee for living a righteous
"And be not drunken with wine,
wherein is riot, but be Oiled with
the Spirit." "Wine and the Holy
Spirit both lift a man oat of him
self," says a commentator. But
while wine rives a false sense of
joy, and makes a man forget his
troubles for a time, It may also
make him arrogant, proud, even
quarrelsome and murderous. The
Holy Sptrit gives a true Joy.

to make us more conscious of that.
