Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...But remember this is just what the prophet and king, the disciple of Moses' law and the restorer of the ritual, David, did. After his year of hypocrisy, adultery and murder, he was aroused to the depth of his apostasy and with "broken spirit, a broken and crushed heart" he sought the face of the gracious God against whom above all others he had sinned. Not until he had received again the tender mercies of his God who pardons all who call on him, Ps. lxxxvi. 5, from all their sins, xxv. II, 18; lxxxvi. 2, and guilt, li. 9; ciii. 3; cxxx. 8, will he presume to offer sacrifices, Ps. li. 16-19. To quote only this instance, a type of all others, what could sacrifices mean to David? to a pardoned man? They could be only typical. At peace with God the spiritually minded man brought his sacrifice, not to gain pardon and peace with God, for he already possessed them as the prerequisite of a sacrifice, but in obedience to the appointment of God, testifying two great truths as he laid his hand upon the head of the victim, his sin, Lev. i. 4, and that a life must be given for that sin, Lev. xvii. II. These two truths were expressly taught in the Pentateuch, Lev. xvi. 710, 15, 20-22, as well as in other places. In the same way the question might be asked, If a heathen has been converted and found pardon and 'peace with God, what need of baptism ar1d the Lord's supper? That he may show forth, as God has appointed he should, the death and resurrection of his Redeemer. This view is not a precarious inference by human wisdom, but it is the constant teaching of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament. No man was ever or could be justified by works, Acts iii. 20; xiii. 39; Rom. iii. 20; Gal. ii. 16; iii. 11; Tit. iii. 4-7. No blood of an animal could more
