TE HOA MAORI, WITH GOOD NEWS FOR ALL " I haere mai hoki te Tama a te tangata ki te rapu ki te whakaora i te mea i ngaro." Ruka 19.10. " For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost." Luke 19.10. NAMA 10. ) AKARANA, AKETOPA, 1888. (Registered as No. 10. i AUCKLAND, OCTOBER, 1888. a Magazine. "He pono, he pono taku e mea atu nei kia koutou, Te tangata e rongo ana ki taku korero, a e whakapono ana ki toku kai tono mai, he oranga tonutanga tona; e kore ano hoki ia e riro ki roto ki te whakamatenga, e ngari kua whiti atu i te mate ki te ora." Hoani v. 24.
" Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into con- demnation ; but is passed from death unto life" John v. 24, KUA OTI TAU TAHA O TE MAHI ?
I muamua ake nei i au e korero ana ki tetahi kaumatua i nga mahi a te Karaiti, me taku ki atu-e-he mahi oti rawa ta te Karaiti; ko tana whakahoki mai tenei. '' Ae ra hoki; he tika tena kupu! Kua oti i a te Karaiti Tona taha; otira me mahi ano hoki tatou i to tatou taha." Kihai ahau i whai kupu atu ki a ia mo te he noa iho ona, kua tata nei ki te mate koroheke i runga i te hara, kia putu i a ia tera kupu, me mahi ia i tona taha (kua pau nei ona ra, a keihea he mahinga mona); ki atu ana ahau, "Heoi ra, mehemea kahore ano kia oti noa tau taha te mahi, kua oti ke taku taha te mahi." Ano ra ko ia mai, " ina te aha ?" Ki atu ana ahau, '' no te mea, kua oti i a au te mahi." Ano ra ko ia, " e ki kua oti tau taha." Ki atu an ahau, "ae ra, he tika kua oti taku taha. E matau ana ranei koe he aha taku (o te mahi) ? Ano ra ko ia, "Kahore." HAVE YOU DONE YOUR PART ?
A SHORT time ago, as I was speaking to an old man about the work of Christ, and remarking that it was a finished work, he made the not uncommon reply: " Oh, yes; it's very true ! Christ has done His part; but then we've still got to do ours." Without stopping to notice the folly of a man who was just reaching the end of a long life of sin talking about doing his part, I replied, " Well, if you have still got yours to do, I have not got mine." "How's that?" he asked. "Because I have already done it," I replied. "You done your part!" he exclaimed with an air of incredulity. "Yes," I said; "indeed I have. And do you know what my part was!" " No." " Well then, I'll tell you. It was my sins, and nothing else."
