The God of all Comfort
Continued from Thursday, January 13.
T( > realize these facts gives
us greater confidence in
looking forward, but we yel
long i'> I now more clearly what
that life is like.
I h> aid of a man who lost his
wife suddenly and who got a
letter the next day from one
w ho knew nothing of her illness,
laying, "How is your wife? I
dreamt last night that she was
walking across a moor to a high

I .....take her: as she neared the
wall a door opened in it, she
turned as she en tend and Smiled
at me with a more joyous look
than I ever Saw on any fair lie
fore, but she passed on and the
door was shut."
Yes, the door shuts, and no
one comes back to tell us what
is within.
lint v. > s .mi limes si e the joy
of those we lote, as ihey entei
into the "Win Id of Light," ami
it is so intense that we r< .:Iis<
how, even if they longed with
nil tin ir heart to do so, they
could not tell us about a life SO
much greater than ours that our
language lias no wofds to hold
i!s wond< is,
St. John strives to give us
ideas of Colour and Harmon)
and Peace by using earthly sun
hols gold and harps and river
hanks. Hut though we believe
that the many mansions are or
dered on the same lines as ours,
we cannot guess the innnner of
th,it ordering. No Lazarus has
ever returned to tell us, and we
cannot go closer to their joys
than to think with (icorge Her-
"icit of "Light, Joy, and lei
k" or of (he picture in Sir
Thomas More's mind when he
wrote :
" led the children of heaven
ly hosts awaiting to carry ofl
d UK n's souls in fire-bright
chariots with hoists of the Sun,
to a land w here they shall never
in ire be surbated and weary,
but walk on cool springy turf
and among myrtle trees, and
eat fruits thai shall heal while
they delight them, and drink
the cooh st of cold water f;- h
from the Riverof Life, and have
space to sti !t< h themselves, and
bathe, and hap and run, and
whichever way thej look, meet
Christ's eve smiling oil them."
How often we forget thislar-
gl r, sunniei life and tr\ to find
comfort by "goim to the grave
to w-1 |i there," instead of fore,
iug our mind and thoughts to
dwell on the in mi invigorating
thougl that the Dead It
gone before to a wider sphere
of labour,
"more full of life
Than w hen the) lived indeed."
W i should he vi i \ teudei t'
tin se w i.o cling to the grave,
but the sight of them calls on
us to tune oursehes to a minoi
1 ey. whereas w e sin >uld be moie
in tune w ith the Dead, if the
sight of those who love them
best, always reminded us that
one of our household had gone
forward to such a splendid life
that it did one's heart good to
tjiink of i'. Quo uplift of the
War will surely be that ttie
absence of graves for so many
fallen in battle, will drive
mourners to rife above the clinj,'-
ing to the giave which is our
natural tendency, howevi r well
we know in our hearts that
"The dead are not dead but
alive."
It is hard to enter into the
joy of tin it life even if they are
in the sunlit meadows, if we arc
in the shadows below, hunger-
ing for a sight of them, or frett-
ing over our own past mistakes
which we can no longer set
right. Is there any comfort for
the sting of recollecting our own
past omissions, hardness, blun-
dering ? We would give our
right hand now, if only we
could wipe out that time when
we were so dense or jealous or
self-centred, but now it is too
late. In this life we had the
power of coming Bjfain into
close touch witli each other af-
ter such moments, so close a
touch that we could make them
realise, the neglect or hardness
we were so sorry for was not
our rtal self. Then we could
start again in closer oneness,
but now the black curtain of
Death has fallen between us
and it is too late !
N'o In the .' oild of a living
I i< d, who is as nun b the Cod
of Abraham and Isaac, as of
I."id K'uli i ts and the men who
fell yesterday, there is n<> such
w i id as too late.
If "all live unto I lim," there
can be Mi i watei t ighl compart-
ments in the i'i\ ine Life.
Do ymi say in your hearts :
"I could lu?d him out and get
to him if he were anywhere in
the world ; but now between
him and me there is a great
gulf."
No Here in this world of
limitations, baniers of Space
and Time and Custom have ter-
rible power : Mie sailor must be
RWay for months, office hours
keep a husband awayjill day, a
sick- bed keeps the mother from
her children, but Death sets
free :-- the unseen world may
be penetrating and enveloping;
mirs so that, if our ryes were
opened, we should see not only |
"chariots ol lire and horses of;
fire" round a! out us, but also
among t^1 se hosts f tl e Lord
we should surely see those who
love us personal
Once in the spirit world,
will surel i. and the
consciousness of twi love
enough will surely meet in the
same Universe, as certainly as
here in the same ; erhaps
more certainly, for we can all
remember times when being
together in one room, was no
security agaii st feeling rids
asunder.
As you think over tint word
at which you took- offence, ; ei
haps his real meaning now at
ast dawns on you. and you feel
one with himsurely it is not
too much to believe that, at
such a moment of I tl |
sion, his spirit i* also COnSCh
of an electric thrill of oneness,
and he smih s to him i If, say
ing, "She undei I last."
Think over old sore pi
instead of drear]
them by the warmth of y
love to day naj, do mor ;
make there failiii b ( asion
of i ising.
If you are more careful t i
heal other wounded hearts to-
day, because of the wounds -or
pin-pricks you inflicted in the
past, surely those who watch
you with loving eyes from a
larger world, will rejoice that
they suffered in the past, if it
results in your helping others
to-day.
