You cover your sins, and they  will have ar resurrection some-  lime; let God cover them, and  neither, devil nor man can find  them.  There are lour expressions in  Iho Bible with regard to where  God puts sins. He puts thein  '���behind His back.'' * If God has  forgiven me, who will bring a  charge against mev '��� 1Jo has  blotted them out, as a thick  cloud." You see a cloud tonight  and tomorrow there isn't a cloud  to be seen. ''He casts them into  the depths of the sea." Some  one has said, "Thank God that  it is a sea and not ,a river; a  river might dry up, but the sea  cannot." Tlie greatest blessing  that ever comes to me this side  of heaven is when God forgives  me. Have '.you been forgi von ?  The fourth expression i.s that, He  removes them "as far as the,east  is Jroni the west." Do you know-  how far that is? Perhaps some  good ma'thematician will figure  that up. , <y  Ii'0< we confess our sins, Ho is  l.iilhlul and just to forgive us  our sins, and to cleanse us from  all unrighteous. -Then' make  sure thaUyou are forgiven.

Hero  is the finished cloth. What mudu  it? The loom wove it. But the  owner-moved the loom? No: it  was moved by this band. Then  he drew the band'? No; il was  moved by a wheel. Hut he  turned the wheel? No; it was.  turned by the water-wheel. Certainly he makes that, 1,0? No; il  was driven by the water. And  the river? Comes irom Hie  clouds. Thus he traces Jho  whole process, and does not see  any human intervention. And  yet it is all controlled by the  mind of the man who stood be  side him.
