LENT.
The season of Lent brings us face to face with that which may be called the real business of life, “so to pass through things temporal, that we finally lose not the things eternal.” It is sin which causes the loss; to overcome sin then is our task in this world. Our Lord Jesus Christ shews us how to set about the work; for, while He came in the first place to make atonement for sin, His life upon earth was an example of purity and sinlessness. The closer our fellowship with Jesus, the firmer our resistance of sin; hence, the benefit to be derived from more frequent communion, and an uninterrupted observance of the services of the Church, for “where two or three are gathered together in His name, there is He in the midst of them. ”In order to direct our thoughts to the great pattern of Holiness, the subject of the Wednesday evening Lectures will be—
The lesson to be learnt in our conflict with sin, from the example of our Lord Jesus Christ in—1, Fasting; 2, Prayer; 3, Use of Scripture;
4, Attendance at Public Worship; 5, Employment of Time; 6, Devotion to God.
At Yorkley Wood, on Friday evenings, there will be Lectures on the Penitential Psalm, Ps. 6, 32, 38, 51, 102, 130, 143. This course commenced on Ash Wednesday, with an address on Ps. 6. These Psalms will serve as useful portions of Scripture for private reading during Lent.
