THE REDEMPTIVE IDEA

Nothing becomes more manifest, as one studies the Master's life, than that from the beginning he was entirely sure of the adequacy of the remedy he offered for the healing of the ills of humanity, and that the impress of his words and works upon the open-minded about him was such as to beget in them the same positive assurance.

He said, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly;" and there can be no question that this word "life" embraced in his thought all real freedom and possessions, opportunity for the exercise of every noble faculty, the acquisition of all that is true, beautiful, and good. He did not fail to apprehend the situation, to perceive the extent of the desecration and disaster which to human sense sin had wrought, and yet he named himself as the possessor of that which would meet every demand, solve every worldly problem, and thus establish on earth and among men the kingdom of God, even "as it is in heaven."
