EXHORTATION



   Beloved brethren, the love of our loving Lord was never
more manifest than in its stern condemnation of all error,
wherever found.  I counsel thee, rebuke and exhort one
another.  Love all Christian churches for the gospel's
sake; and be exceedingly glad that the churches are united

be witnessed and done on earth as in heaven.
   Sooner or later all shall know Him, recognize the great
truth that Spirit is infinite, and find life in Him in whom
we do "live, and move, and have our being" - life in
Life, all in All.  Then shall all nations, peoples, and
tongues, in the words of St. Paul, have "one God and
Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in
you all."  (Ephesians iv. 6.)

nature of whatever is unlike good, weigh a sigh,
and rise into the rest of righteousness with its triumphant
train.
   Once more I write, Set your affections on things above;

spirit; worship in spirit and in truth; and if daily adoring,
imploring, and living the divine Life, Truth, Love, thou
shalt partake of the bread that cometh down from heaven,
drink of the cup of salvation, and be baptized in Spirit.
