Tabernacle Baptist flhapel CONTINUATION OF OPENING SERVICES. On Sunday last the opening services of the above place of worship were continued. The preacher for the day was the Rev Samuel Harris Booth, D.D., (London, Secretary of the Baptist Union). His dis- course in the morning-was founded upon Isaiah lxiv. The learned docto" spoke of Christ as the great burden bearer. --ift of God was not to be purchased by money. It was not possible for us to save ourselves, but He who died for us was willing and waiting to save us, and to heal our disease of sin. He never casts out those who come to Him. Speaking specially to the young, the preacher «aid "Give your hearts to God now in the very spring time cf life. The pro. mise was, 'I love them that love Me, and those that seek Me early shall find Me.' In the evening- the Doctor took for his text. Luke xxiv., 27 and 28—"The journey from Jerusalem to Emmaus The death of Christ had sealed up the fountain of these disciples' hope, but not their love, And as He talked to them, their hearts burned withm them, and when they arrived at their journey's end, He mace as though He would have gone farther, but they constrained Him, nay. they even held Him by force-took hold of His clothing and would not let flini go, and on account of their importunily Qe went in with them. We canuot entertain Him as they entertained Him, but we can open our hearts to Him, and He will come in and bless us. The day is far spent. The silver cord will soon be broken. Is He your friend? Wake up! you are bleeping on the very verge of the abyss of destruction Wake up it M not yet too late, For while the lamp holds out to burn, The vilest sinner may return. Will you allow this day—this opening day-to pass, over, as so many others have done ? Hitherto you have delayed. Will you still delay ? Hp is waiting to be gracious He is waiting for the re-spondidg cry, Thou shalfc be the Guide of my youth." There must be a persistency in seeking Him. How did He act with the Syrophenician woman ? Did He at once respond to her cry ? T":d He not gay, Let the chil- dren first be filled, for it is not meet to take the chil- dren's bread, iind to cast it unto the dogs." But she cried, Yea, Lgrd but the dogs eat the crumbs which fall from the Master's table." Then it was that Christ yielded to her petition. When the disci- ples were in the boat, Jesus did not heed their fears until they cried obt, "Save, Lord, or we perish.' Then He rebuked the winds, and said "Peace be still.^ How did He act with Mary aud Martha, when they sent to say their brother was sick? He waited until Lazarus was dead, and afterwards said, Did I notysay thou shalt see my glory ? and that night He sat at their table, and Lazarus with them who had been dead. These disciples who entertained Him entertained an angel unawares. Their guest became their entertainer, and they tegan to wonder among themselves, and say, "Is it He, the Lord who was crucified ? Aud they arose to do Him homage, but He had gone from their midst- Will you admit that Divine guest ? If He comes in there will always be light. Abide wrb me," let that be the prayer of everyone here to-night; let that be your prayer at this the opening of your new chapel. In the afternoon a united Sunday School service was held. The following schools were present as- visitors :-Windsor Road Congregational, Stanwell Road Baptist, Presbyterian, and Welsh Baptist.
