REV. HENRY BABB AT BRIDGEND. There was a large congregation at the Wesleyan Chapel, Bridgend, on Sunday evening, when the special preacher was the Rev. Henry Babb, of Tenby. The text chosen was Luke xix, v. 4, "And he ran before and climbed up into & sycamore tree to see Him for He was to pass that way." The preacher said he believed that Zacchajus represented a very large class of people —viz., a class of people who wanted to see Jesus. The conduct of Zaccha.'us was worthy of imitation. Commenting upon the difficulties which Zacchaeus had overcome to see Jesus he said that Zacchasus was ecclesiastically outlawed, and that was no trifling difficulty for a man to overcome. Again Zacchreus was a publican and a rich man. Whatever difficulties there were in the way of Christ the Lord had provided a means of over- coming them. Some would have to climb the tree like Zacchscus before they saw the Saviour. Was it love of the world which kept them from the Lord? Then they would have to climb the tree of separation from the world—separation from. the majority. Was it covetousness ? If so, they would have to climb the tree of sacrifice. Was the difficulty in their way—that of intemperance ? If so, they would have to climb the tree of temperance and so on with all other difficulties. God had provided something- to set against and to overcome every obstacle iu the way to Him. ■
