SUNDAY AT HOME
THE REV. G. CAMPBELL MORGAN OF FAITH CURES. Speaking at Northfield once, Mr Campbell Morgan said : “I am sometimes asked if I believe in faith healing, and I always say absolutely ‘No.’ I believe in divine healing, which is a very different matter. I do not think there is any healing that is not divine. When I am ill I will get the best medical skill I can and thank God for it every time, perfectly sure that under certain conditions and at certain points for certain reasons God can heal me without medical skill if He will to do it. What I object to in the nonsense talk of to-day is that God must heal mo if I want it, whether He wills or not.” Repentance is like exercise, in that the only kind worthy the name must be 'kept up steadily'. No one can Jove his neighbour who has not trained himself to translate that word into acts of friendship. ■“Moral courage” sounds like something' mighty fine : but it is as simple as dc>ing what one knows to bo right. More often than not the secret of misery' is discovered with the realisation that the miserable one is -trying to please himself. There are two kinds of goodness, and the one which springs from the lack of animal courage to do wrong isn’t worth much to the world. Keep a good watch, over,your own conscience, and you will not be likely' to judge others rashly. Just to be tender ; just to be true ; Just to be- glad the whole day through. Whether the hour is 'dark or bright,. Just to be loy'al to God and right. Just to believe that God knows best; Just in his promise ever to rest ; Just to let love be our daily key’— This is God's will for you and me.
