Hjah this Colossus amongst ordinary men, who dwarfs us, whilst his own noble proportions defy the belittling perspective of long distance. But my excuse will be found in the thought, reiterated on many a succeeding page, that the life of this mighty man was wrought out through the indwelling of that Holy Spirit which is equally within reach of those who will believe and obey. There is nothing the Church of to-day needs so much as Spiritual Power; and there is nothing which we can have so easily, if only we are prepared to pay the price. It is of no use to exclaim, in despairing tones, Where is the Lord God of Elijah? He is here, waiting to do as much now as for the illustrious saints of olden times. Be it ours to emulate their faith; and to stand as they did in the presencechamber of God, prepared to fulfill His least behest: so shall we be followers of them who, through faith and patience, inherit the promises. F, B. Meyer.
