From our Exchanges

The coming revival will be "a revival of religion, and not a religious revival." A genuine revival of religion will set the great fundamental principles of Christianity before men in a clearer light and with renewed emphasis, and will bring a keener sense of right and wrong. One cannot fail to connect the present uncovering of illegitimate measures in public and commercial life with the religious awakening now upon the world; for the ultimate ideal of the heavenly kingdom must find some foreshadowing in the living, militant Church of Christ; and the genuine revival must bring this about not by the mechanical manipulation of men, but through thoroughly regenerated natures into which love has come to reign supreme, whose conversions have been more largely by love's appeal.

Wentworth F. Stewart.
The Christian Advocate.

Life is not sufficiently regarded as mainly an opportunity for character-building and testing. We are to use life as essentially designed, not for getting and holding, but for acquiring soul-worth in which lies salvation. By faith and love and prayer—by labor, by philanthropy, by self-culture, mental and spiritual—we are to seek unguessed treasures of wisdom and strength. We shall travel this way but once, and if we fail to get out of life what it was meant to yield us, we fail miserably.—Western Christian Advocate.
