FROM OUR EXCHANGES

[G. B. F. Hallock, D.D., in Christian Work and Evangelist.]

Nothing can be more certain than that Jesus' teachings concerning the Christian life present it, and were intended to present it, as a thing of deep and abounding joy. He meant us to know that religion in itself is a joyous experience. Religion is the normal attitude and exercise of the spiritual nature. In other words, it is spiritual health. As it is a joy to be able to see and to hear the beautiful things in the natural world, so it is immeasurably a greater joy to be able to hear and to see the glad and beautiful things in the kingdom of God—in the spiritual world. Religion is immeasurably more than the means of securing future happiness. It is that; but it is also happiness and well-being now and here, and all the way along, until one comes into the full enjoyment of the bliss of heaven.
