Excerpt: ... SERMON III. THE EAISING OF LAZAEUS. "And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. "And he that was dead, came forth, bound hand and foot, with grave clothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him and let him go."--John xi. 43,44. We enter this day upon the second of those subjects, which this miracle at Bethany seems designed to illustrate. We have seen, in the description of the grave of Lazarus, given in the preceding part of this narrative, a type of the condition of the unregenerate man. It was a painful and distasteful task that we were called upon then to perform--to set forth the death and the corruption of the soul, to take away the stone from the sepulchre, and exhibit human nature in its helpless insensibility--in its moral decay. There is something in the sight of death, whether spiritual or physical, that appals and chills the heart of the beholder; and which, but for the hope of the resurrection, in both cases, would move us to despair. If it were not that we could shew you Christ beside the grave,' whether of the body or the soul, we dare not call on you to look on either. We thank God for this, that he does stand beside the grave. We thank God for this, that, when we have to point you to the triumph of death, it is principally for this very purpose, that we may cause you rightly to understand and rejoice in the great work of him, who, through death, destroyed him that had the power of death. We invite you, then, on this occasion, to contemplate, not the sad proofs of the power of sin, but the glorious proofs of the power of Christ; to look, not on the signs of death, but on the tokens of life--not on the hideous process of decay, but on the glorious work of restoration....
