MISSISSFPPI There Is No Condemnation By REV. JOHN C. PAGE 'rQacher of Bible Dotrine, MoodF Bible Institute, Chicago. TEXT"There Is therefore now no ondemmxtlon to them that are la : Cim-ist Jesus."wRomans 8:L Mountain climbing is a difficult lask, but the returns for labor expended are rich and satisfy. lag. The higher one ascends, the more beautiful be* comes the vision. When the top of the mountain is reached a scene of such splendor usually opens be-  fore the eye that the soul Is over- whelmed with the greatness and grandeur of moun- tain and river and plain, as they un- fold themselves in their vast reaches. The opening words of the eighth chapter of Romans brings us to the op of the mountain of Christian truth from which the believer looks out over ,the vast stretches of God's grace, and ries out exultantly: "There is now me condemv.ation." Condemnation Is the result of guilt' f unrighteousness, of a corrupt na- ture, and the sense of powerlessness to attain one's ldGal. If these four limiting perplexing, cumbersome condi- tions which are attached to all human life In a greater or less degree could be removed, the sense of condemnation would be removed. Now this is pre. lsely wht God has done. i First. He has removed our gIHlt "I have blotted out as a thick cloud thy transgressions and as a cloud thy sins return unto Me for I have redeemed thee." If the question of method be raised, if we ask how Is this accom- plished, the words of John 1:29 and Hehrews 9:2{} will supply the answer: Behold ;he Lamb of God which taketh ltway the sin of the world." "He ap- weaved to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself." In that sacHflclal death, He met and settled forever everything involved In our sinning. "He died, the ]nst for the unjust." In view of that death and by virtue of It, the divine proclamation In Acts 13:38 Is made: "Be It known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man Is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: and by Him all that believe are Justified from all things." Guilt is removed through the vicarious :atonement of the Son of God. To the ,end of time this truth will be assailed with objections, hut as long as the vorid stands, the awkward conseleuce 'will turn to tt as the ,me and only appointed *'city of refuge." In the second Place  righteousness is Iduted to the believer In Christ. With all our self-righteousness, there Is asense of condemnation because of Its lnsuflciency. The soul instinctive- ly feels this. After one has done the best he can, there is this sense of in- adequacy and incompleteness, a feeling of shortcoming, and a conviction that our own righteousness Is not valid be- fore Ood even though It stands the mtiny of man. "All things are naked and open before the eyes of Him with whom we have to do," Motive as well ts action is seen by our God. Under such conditions, ad standing on one's wn merits, it Is Impossible to say: 'Where is therefore now no condemna- tion." But Christ is made nnto us righteousness. He not only removes our guilt but reckons over to our as- count that divine righteousness which by His life and death He wrought oat for us. It Is as Luther said: "Lord Jesus. I am thy sin, thou art my right- eousness." Imputed righteousness is clearly taught in the Bible. In one chalter. Romans 4. the word "imputed" or -reckoned" Is used eleven times in this connection. "Abraham believed God and it was reckoned to Him  for Hghteousness." Abraham ia the norm er standard in this matter. A divine righteousness is provided In the gospel and reckoned over to the accoum of those who believe that gospel, On the basis of this Imputed rights ousness, In addition' to the removal of guilt, one may with Increased emphas.s affirm: rbere is therefore now no condemna- tion." In the third place, a new life Is im- parted. Those to whom a divine rlght eousness is Imputed are made the tnmlplents of the dlvine lif e. ..In other words, when we are jusuneo vy Christ. we are also united to Christ In n spiritual, vital and vitalizing union. As the branch iS In the vlne, so are we in Christ. To be in Christ Lmplles that the life of Christ is in us. The one Is the compliment of the other. the fourth place, lower Is pro- vlded, condemnation may result froih powerie-ess as well as from guilt. qhe "wretched man" of Romans 7:24 cries out for power rather than for cleansing. He longs for ,deliverance from.the dominion of the old nature. at this point Is fully met, as it is in every other respect. of life in Christ Jesus hath free from the laW of sin and Is provided, even the Holy Spirit who is 'i'he PlHt of life In Christ Jesus." In vlew>/ this four-fold provision. the soul triumphantly exclaims: rhere is theefgre now no-condem. nat|on to them that are In Christ Jesus," for guilt is removed, righteous." .ess Is Imputed, life is Imparted, an power Is provided.

"My flowers are pink with five petals and yellow centers. "Around these yellow centers you see little touches o red, and my flower are single.

But they're my delight, ad so are they the delight of all members of the Marsh Pink family. We're also known as the Sea Pink Gentians. There Is a cousin of ours known as the Fringed Gentian. "Fringed Gentian Is bell-shaped and wears almost always the favorite color of the Fringed Gentian family. That Color is blue. "Oh, how Pringeff Gentian does love  blue, and such a color of blue do the members of that family always get. It is a blue like the sky when the sky Is very, very deep blue. *'It Is that wonderful shade of blue which Is so gorgeous and yet wldch is so hard to describe. Fringed Gen-" tlan is loved by many and the family have always been popular, "The ends are fringed and the fringe ends of those flowers are simply loved by people. "At night they close up their petal, hiding their pretty faces from view as they sleep, Just as the birds keep their heads under their wings at night, ] 'rhere are members of the Fringed Gentian family known as the Smaller Fringed Gentians and the Stiff Gen. tlas. **But Fringed Gentibn, of which I am speaking, you will lind in the moist, quiet woods. "Fringed Gentian loves the life of te woods. It is so peaceful, and so beautiful. It Is the Ideal place, they think, In which to live, though some times they like the meadows, too, e peclaliy where the meadows are near streams and are somewhat moist. "For Fringed Gentian likes water as we do, only we prefer salty water to fresh water. "Fringed Gentian shows its pretty head Ires out green leaves which have kept It hidden until it L tame for it to be out. "I cannot help loving and talking about my beautiful relative, tool "Then there Is the Closed Blue or Blind Gentian. They are all fond of darker blue in their costumes. And you find clusters of them. all tightly closed, grouped together between leaves.  You can't mistake them or they are all closed and so they have this family name which Is really very fitting. They, too, Kke moLture and damlmeS& And you will be very apt to find them If you look for them in damp thickets.

Let the designer of things knitted get the least inkling of a new fashion and presto! its charm Is Immediately Interpreted through knitted stitch. Most of us visualize it as a square of gay printed silk knotted and tied about one's shoul- der with naive grace. The picture tells a different story. It reveals the theme translated in the language of knitted art. It does not take'much of an Imag- lnarAon to sense the decorative charm A Wlnsor Aator. of a neckerchief knitted of fiber silk, the major color being burnt orange with diagonal paisley stripes done in green, orchid, purple, blue, yellow, whlte and black. The culminating b muty touch is attained in the deep [n:e which displays the multi-colors of the paisley design. There are many types of these knit- ted "shawlettes" and they all make color their outstanding feature. Brfl- linnt Italian shades, bold gypsy colors add charm to the idea. In this way a somber costume is enlivened by a forceful dash of color. We are only Just beginning to ap preciate what a fund of lovely ideas the knitted aeceszeHea present. To say that the wide cobweb-knit zephyr scarfs in rainbow colorings are el- fective, but mildly states the ease.

The first proposal to lay a cable from Dover to Calais was denounced as a "mad freak," a "gigantic swindle." So little was known about It that when a fisherman hauled up the line with his trawl he thought It a new species of seaweed. Some thought the signals were to be given by pulling on the wire like a doorbell, so they argued the ocean bed was too rough and un- even for that. While some objected that It would kill all the fish, others beIleed that fish would gnaw off the Insulating gntta percha covering and put the line out of business. Lieu. tenant Maury, a marine, not a cable experL ventured to express the opin- Ion that there never would be a time calm enough, the sea smooth enough and wire long enough or a ship big enough to lay an Atlantic cable- When, after a few weeks of operation, the first Atlantic cable gave out. some declared that It never had worked and no messages ever had been sent. and some doubted If It ever had been laid.
