Within the court of the temple, in the presence of the Pharisees and their satelites, Jesus had said, I am the light of the world; he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” The saying, resented as egoistical and arrogant, led on to that altercation which ended in their taking up stones to cast at Him, and in His hiding Himself in some mysterious way and passing out of the temple, “going through the midst of them.” At one of the temple gates, or by the roadside without, “as Jesus passed by...

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence. Eph. 1:7, 8 Blessed be God! The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! That is the keynote of this entire epistle to the Ephesians. It is the note of praise that should be struck from the heart and sound forth from the lips of the redeemed, even while they are in the midst of this world that lieth in darkness. The note of grateful praise! He, the God...
