Not illustrated. 1853 edition. Excerpt: ...it to us. The great object of the Sundayschool and of the church of Christ is to tell you about the "Rock, Christ Jesus," and urge you to build on him. We are plainly told, by the Holy Spirit, that "other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ." If, then, dear children, you would build aright, you must build on Christ Jesus. His gracious, His atoning merits constitute the rock of ages on which believers in Him, both 1 Cor. iii. 11. young and old, may build their hopes of happiness in Heaven. Rest in His love. Build on His merits, and build according to His word. Thus do you become Christian builders. Each one has a Christian character to build up. It must be built on the " sure foundation," and it must be built according to the holy 'will and commandments of our blessed Lord. It is a holy work. All heaven is interested in it, --all earth should be. Come ye. Come and be young Christian builders! Build, by the acts of your daily life, a character which shall be known of all as belonging to Christ. Build according to the rules of His holy word. Build in the strength of His Holy Spirit. Build with thoughts of His constant presence. Build for eternity and heaven! And can you do nothing, young Christian builders, toward extending the great building or Church of Christ on earth? Can you contribute nothing toward it? _ The building is going on. Every child or person converted to Christ is a new stone in the walls of the building, or a pillar to aid in its support. Every good book you help to distribute, every Sunday-school you help to establish, every thing you give toward sending the Bible abroad among those who have it not, every Christian word and deed of yours may be of some influence...show more
