Except Ye Convert.
“Except ye convert (revised
version) and become as this little
child, ye cannot enter the king-
dom of heaven.,’ “Convert’
used in this sense, can only*
mean “turn” or “change.”
There is too much of the ‘‘be
converted” idea in tnudh gospel
preaching. People are sitting
about waiting for some great
spiritual power outside of them-
selves to take hold of them and
“convert” them. There should
be no confusion of ideas, meth-
ods and results, no shifting of
responsibilities or duties.
Conversion, turning, is man’s
part, regeneration, the “new
birth,” the giving of spiritual
life, is God’s part. The Word
declares that God will not do
man’s part,—man cannot, if he
would, do God’s part. To first
become “as a little child” in or-
der to complete salvation from
sin and its results, is the sci-
entific way, hence it is the
gospel way, and this in turn is
God’s way, because God is the
author of both man and natural
If a pitcher is half full of dirty
water, you can make it less dirty
proportionately by pouring in
clean water. But, by this pro-
cess, even when the pitcher, is
full, the water will not be clean.
The only way to have clean water
in the pitcher is to first pour out
the dirty water (conversion man’s
part) wash and cleanse the
God's part).then fill - the pitcher
with clean water (the new life in
Christ). Here is another illus-
tration of the principle. If a
basket is partly full of red ap-
ples, you can fill it with green
or yellow apples only by taking
out the red ones. „ If there is
any sin in the heart, that man or
woman can become perfect only
by putting all the sin out. This
is no religious cant, it is both
natnaal and religious science.—

inour, whose botjy, after lying in

taining it to have grown a full
beard several feet in length. The
man was seventy years old at
