From Our Exchanges

[Rev. A. Z. Conrad, Ph.D., D.D., in The Advance.]

We are wont to say, "He who lives well dies well," but we had better say, "He who has learned the secret of living has learned the secret of avoiding dying," for to live well is never to die at all. A personality that antagonizes all forms of evil and attracts all forms of good is made possible only through obedience to the will of God, and the incoming of His life gives life and peace. There is a constitutional attraction or repulsion in almost everything. It is peculiarly true in personality. That personality which becomes so imbued with the spirit of Jesus that in itself and without effort it repels evil, has gone far toward discovering the secret of joy and peace and blessing.

Life's largest secret is how to live divinely. Its quest for happiness is a legitimate quest. It is not so far to seek. A definite and unfailing alliance with the "Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning," guarantees a permanency of blessing. "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people." "Seek the Lord, and ye shall live," has been written in letters of blood over the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, and today it needs to be flashed into the very heavens, that all the world may see and turn aside from their pride, their vanity, their presumption, their hate, and with inspired devotion place larger faith in the keeping care of the Father, whose "tender mercies are over all his works."
