Militia' of all life to manifeit itself—eo out

seems to be a law. So much soi that when=
you reverse it and make life 'turn =back on

is' not necessary that you go to the heart—
the root or centre of life—and aim your

tcea man, and refuse , to do well by him when- ,
you ought, destroys, brand by, the
of ' , even wishing well. The ad' n
Bllilli4bo said to his starving and naked

really wishing. he 'might be, feeling kindly,
to him, no doubtibrrepeatifig that prettifies'

.I Gpod qiialities in' the
heart, when neglected, avenge .themselves
by turning to the very = opposite. Love
Wasted on itself, (maims to be love. Matey
01011 amuses itself with itself, which 'weeps
writer own tears, and feels complacent at its
din - tenderness, ceases to be even mercy=
becomes an unfeeling, hardheaded coun
terfeit. = So •novel readers, who weep over
fictitious woes, which give them no Pipykir-t
titnity 'Of' doing anything, become Milken :
insynipattifeing, and hard hearted before a
case of actual suffering. So it is with , the
religions feeling which does not pass 'at
ence i -whenever the opportunity offers, into
action; it ceases to be even feeling. It dies
for =want , of something to feedlupon ; be
comes 'feeble from want of eternise. So we
find 'after " Reilvals," as we call them,
comes dectension, death, deader than =be
fore the life; darkness deeper than 'before
the light. We marvel at this. We stand
lrefore it as a great mystery. We talk of
the Spirit's sovereignty who comes, and
044 and goes, according tq his own
sovereign will. But we forget this plain
pritteifile: Man can't live on excitement.
He cien'tgrow on rhapsody. He demands
More substantial food than that. He must
have 'theistrength of principle which comes
of hard work inqlischarge of duty. Duty
done is ' 'What Istrengthens faith, whispers
peace to conscience, and clothes principle in
mail of steel. "We — forget, too, that man
can't always be iiived,eitement. It is trans
ient in its very' iiattite. The waves of
feeling lashed into jloountains by tite
Spirit's breath„,must settle by and by. The'
stream driven on =by 'the= breath behitid,
must run slower by and' by unlade you open
an Mkt for it. Take dOwn the barrier,
and the wave dashes on; ,the shore and
spends its force; but in the very act it did
a good work, watered the 'thirsty ground,
and that wave gone, leaves-room for another
to do its work, without =falling, beak uselers
on the wave 'behind. So letleiligious ox
ditement 'Ties ,alwqie into 'action;. 'and its
power continues;= not, indeediita t exeitement,'

chafes vitt fearful friction, yet does
nothing. , The other is 'Amu' in motion '
'then it works, noiseless,. powerful, useful.
So let a Christian, under, intense,, religious
'feeling, apply this power to driving some great
and good .work ,before him, end his, feeling
lives, and never dies. But let feeling waste-
itself on itielf, and the man becomes, inevita
bly, deader than he was before. God gives
feeling for ',ark, and when man makes it a
'plaything to#lnuse himself with, for a day,
