80 A Quiet Hour Address
woman, sometimes, indeed, a child, staggering beneath a burden. Any
man who has a right to be called a man would certainly stop and help
a little bit in some way or other because the other man is staggering
beneath the load. Every man would help another when he is over-
burdened; but every man has a burden of responsibility he can carry
himself alone. And today as we consider Russia and the burdens they
are staggering under, burdens of poverty, burdens of bondage, burdens
of reproach, burdens of sin; bear ye vicariously, if you will, their bur-
dens. But then, in doing so, what shall be the motive? Mere humani-
tarianism, mere human sympathy? Oh, no. "Bear ye one another’s
burdens and so fulfill the law, the law of Christ.’’ I want to go to the
third chapter of Hebrews to get more of that, "Wherefore," Every
word is pregnant and vital. "Wherefore." This is not the language
of the poet, it is the language of the logician. This is the language of
the man who reasons because of what has been set forth. And what
has been set forth? In the first chapter, the Lord Jesus Christ is
set forth as being not only superior to men and angels, but as
God. "Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever." There are seven
marks of the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ in that first chapter. Tn
the second chapter you have seven marks of the humanity of our Lord
Jesus Christ. When you come to see in one Person these two great
facts, "very God of very God" and "very man of very man," and
they meet in the same Person, two distinct natures and one Person
forever, when you get that, you have a thought greater than you have
any horizon in your intellect to ensphere. Wherefore, now seeing
that the great God spoken of in the first chapter is the Man spoken
of in the second chapter, who was in all things made like unto His
brethren, in order that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest
in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the
people; "Wherefore, holy brethren, and I just touched on that "holy
brethren" yesterday. There isn’t anyone holy, not one, there is none
righteous, no, not one. Then who are the holy brethren? Those who
are holy with the holiness of Christ.
He That Sanctifieth
The greatest one of the greatest words is that eleventh verse of the
second chapter: "For both He that sanctifieth." Oh, what a blessed
thing that there was One who could sanctify! Every man required to
be sanctified. If you think, for example, of having Moses, who was
to the Israelite the great standard, and then ask, "Will Moses do to
sanctify me?" Oh no. "Will Abraham do?" Oh no. These all were
under sin and all under condemnation, and every one a child of wrath.
Then what shall we do? He who is of purer eyes than to behold
iniquity, is He who sanctifieth; He is the One who Himself was God
