“This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.”—1 Tim. 1:15
The lessons of the past six months have related particularly to our Lord Jesus and his ministry, and in view of this fact Bishop Warren has remarked:—
“I knew a man who went a thousand miles and back, and supported himself at great expense, to be with Agassiz a few weeks at his summer school at Penikese. An hour with the great naturalist would have amply repaid the trouble and expense. To even see the master of any department is helpful.
“Christ is the Master of the department of spiritual life. We have had six months’ study with him and of him. Happily we do not have to go to Judea. He says, ‘I will come to you and make my abode with you,’ and, ‘Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world,’ either as to time or space.
“It is not fish we experiment on, as did Agassiz, but souls,—ourselves. So there can be no more interesting study.”
