called to his aid, and the evangelist is of the right stamp,
consecrated, tactful, efficient, coming not to glorify himself,
keeping money in the background, then God will be glorified
in the conversion of souls, and money will be given without
stint. But what about the use of women evangelists? By
their fruits ye shall know them. The operation of the Holy
Spirit in the administration of redemption is not limited to
gender, any mere than it is to learning, or culture. One of
the most efficient and successful evangelists in our Church
today is a woman.
Give us the Sunday School teacher who will lay aside
her lesson leaf and get down on her knees with her class
around her and pray for their conversion; give us a Church
that will go before God with the confidence that Elijah had
on Mount Carmel, until the fire of the Lord falls; give us a
pastor that will preach until the Day-Spring from on high
comes down to refresh his people; give us evangelists with
the soul-winning power of Philip, who went down to Sama-
ria and preached until "they believed Philip preaching the
things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of
Jesus Christ, and they were baptized, both men and
Women." (Acts 8:12.) Give us the spirit of these things and
God will give us a revival that will sweep African Method-
ism from centre to circumference.
A WORD WITH PASTORS
"Religion ministers to the entire man, and religious journalism
must send its penetrating gaze into the whole world of literature,
science, art, music, business, education, recreation and every other
department of thought and activity. It must irradiate these areas of
human interest with the splendor of divine grace."
And that is our conception of our task. We are toiling here, you
are toiling yonder. THE REVIEW is a child of the Church. She
lives by subscriptions. Will you not secure one or more? Do it now.
Do for us what you so often crave of others-help just a little.
