A FAITH THAT
A SERMON BY REV. JAMES
He Preached Yesterday nt tho First
Presbyterian Church in the Tein
pomiy Absence of the Pastor.
Spoke of the Faith Which Leads
Men to Realize That Christ Is
Ever on His Side and That His
Saving Power Enables Them to
Overcome the World.
Rev. .Tames Stuart Dickson, of Phila
delphia, brother of A. W. Dickson, nnd
a clergyman well known and admired
In this city, occupied the pulpit or the
Finn Presbyterian church yeetetdny, at
Iast night he chose for his text,
I .rutin, v:l, "For whatsoever Is born ot
Clod overcometh the woild, and this Is
the victory that overciowdeth the
world, even our faith." He spoke, In
part, as follows:
"These ure the words of n man who
looked persecution fair In tho face; a
man who had seen his fellow Christians
tin own Into the Hainan arena lo be
made the spoit of the wild beasts; a
man who lived In Rome where on every
side could he seen the power and
splendor of the world.
"This man had something which he
believed gave him victory over tlie at
tacks of the world though he was one
of the poorest of his time. " Our
conceptions of the forces of tlie world
which are constantly seeking to prevent
our Christian life uhnng? as we grow
older. Our boyhood conceptions change
Into a realization, as wo glow older,
that makes us have 11 respect for the
cunning and cleverners of our adver
sary. "What Is the world as iuant hi this
text? First,' it Is temptation, bioadly
speaking, and, second, It is sum total
"of all the forces of (Sod's enemies.
What Is the ictory over these
hostile forces? and what Is'Chrlstlan
"Chilstiun faith is not only personal
belief In tho fact that Christ, the son of
God, came Into this world and bore our
sins upon the cioss of Calvary. That
is only the ground work of faith. Faith,
as I view it. Is a man's own personal
realization of Christ's saving power na
opposed to the powers of evil.
"Fnlth's victory is the assurance that
In spite of all Christ will carry us
thiough safely, If wo but put our trust
in Him. It is the realization that we
aio In what may be called, Christ's
'sphere of Influence and a true appie
ciation of the fact that everything that
comes to us comes to us through His
medium. This Is no theory. It Is real
and practical, and we see evidences of
.such a faith nil about us. The world
hi full of men and women who are
under attack day by day and who are
constantly being templed by the devil,
but who arc held close to God by such
a faith as I have spoken of.
"Wc do not know, perhaps, of many
such cases, because there Is no clear
ing house at -which the drafts on God's
raving power are cleared."
Kev. Mr. Dickson, at this point In
his rermon, made an analysis of the
life of Paul as a typical example of the
victory of real faith over the woild.
Paul, he said, was under constant tire
fions the devil, and yet was able to see
at all times that Christ was at work
for the salvation of his soul. "Your
power to stir up tho malevolence of tho
world is tho gauge of your Christian
ity," he declared. In conclusion, he
"You may bear every toll set down
in the woild's catalogue; you may bear
a thorn always festering and burning
in ycur flesh; you may die In a spirit
ual prison house; but victory can be
yours the victory of seeing Jesus al
ways, of feeling His hand's unceasing
prtssuie, of knowing with eternal cer
titude that He is here and that He Is
usang every force that the devil can
devise and the world can use to make
you more really His child."
