rangimarie? Nana hoki i whakatika te
rangimarie i runga i nga toto o tona ripeka.
Epiha 2, 14, Korehe 1, 20.
Ka hiahia ranei ahau kia hohou i te
rongo? Ahakoa he tangata hara tatou
kua meinga e ia kia houhia ta tatou rongo
he meatanga na te tinana o tona kikokiko,
i te mea ka mate nei, me totou ano kia
tapaea atu ki tona aroaro, he hunga tapu
kahore nei he koha, kahore he he. Korehe
1, 21, 22.
Ka hiahia ranei ahau kia mate ai i te
hara kia ripeketia hoki te kikokiko me ona
hiahia kinotia katoatia? Kua ripeketia
maua ko te Karaiti. E mohio aua hoki
ahau ki tenei, kua ripeketia ngatahitia to
tatou tangata tawhito me ia, kia hemo ai te
tinana o te hara, kia mutu ai to tatou mahi
ki te hara. Na te mea kotahi tona matenga
i te hara ka pena hoki ka ora ia ka ora ki
te Atua. Ko tenei taku whakarauorangu i
te taimaha o te ture e mau ana te tangata
ki nga wa e ora ana ia. Roma 6. 6,
Korehe 3, 3.
Ka hiahia rawatia e ahau te whakara-
ngimarie ? Ko te Koraiti hoki ta te Atua
i whakaatu mai ai i mua hei rangimarieta-
nga i runga i te whakapono ki ona toto.
Ka hiahia ahau ki tika ai ? Na, tena noa
ake he whakaoranga mo tatou e ia i te riri,
i a tatou ka tika nei i ona toto. Roma
5, 9, Me 1 Hoani 4, 10.
Ka hiahia ranei ahau kia kotahi maua ko
te Karaiti ? Me mate ia: na te mea, ki te
kore he purapura witi kia makare ki te
whenua ka tu tahi i a ia; otia ka makere i
a ia ki te whenua kia pirau ka whai hua
nuitia e ia. Hoani 12, 24, Epiha 2, 4, 5.
Me pehea ka taea e tatou te tomo ai ki
roro i te wahi tapu? Na te toto o Ihu
te huarahi hou te huarahi ora, he mea
whakatapu ano nana e tika atu ana na te
arai, ara, na tona kikokiko. Tae noa ki
tena i haehaetia i whakaaturia e te Wairua
Tapu e kore e marama ana te huarahi ki te
wahi tapu. Nga Hiperu 10, 19.
Koia nei na te whakairiaketanga o te
Karaiti i kukume ai nga tangata. A ki te
whakairiha ake ahau ki runga i te whenua
maku nga tangata katoa e kukume ai ki
ahau. Hoani 12, 32.
Col. 1, 20.
" Do I need RECONCILIATION with God?
Though we were sinners, yet now hath He
reconciled us by the body of His flesh
through death, to present us holy and un-
blamable and unreprovable in God's sight.
When we were enemies we were reconciled
to God by the death of His Son. - Col. 1, 21,
" Do I desire to le DEAD TO SIN. and have
the flesh crucified with its affections and
lusts ? I am crucified with Christ. Know-
ing this, that our old man is crucified with
Him, that the body of sin might be des-
troyed; for in that He died He died unto sin
once, and in that He liveth, He liveth unto
God. This is my deliverance also from the
charge and burthen -of the law, which has
dominion over a man as long as he lives.
Rom. 6, 6; Col. 3, 3.
" Do I feel the need O/PROPITIATION ? Christ
is set forth as a propitiation through faith
in His blood. The need of JUSTIFICATION ?
I am justified by His blood. Rom. 5, 9; 1
John 4, 10.
" Would I have a PART WITH CHRIST ? He
must die; for except a corn of wheat fall
into the ground and die, it abides alone; if
! it die, it brings forth much fruit. "John
12, 24; Eph. 2, 4, 5.
How have we boldness to enter into the
holiest ? By the blood of Jesus, by that new
and living way, which He has consecrated
for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh ?
for till that was rent the Holy Ghost sig-
nified by it that the way into the holiest
was not yet made manifest. Heb. 10, 19.
Hence it was a lifted-up Christ that was
the attractive point for all. " If I be lifted
up from the earth, I will draw all men unto
me. "John 12, 32.
In the power of what was the great Shep-

How was the CURSE OF TEE LAW taken

How are we washed from our sins ? He
