The Perfecting of the Promise free pdf Excerpt from The Perfecting of the Promise: A Sermon The anniversary of the death of Jane Lathrop Stanford, on February 28, 1905, was observed on Sunday, March i, 1914, by a service in the Memorial Church, at which the Rev. Dr. Francis G. Peabody, special preacher at the university, delivered the following sermon on "The Perfecting of the Promise" "These all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect." - Hebrews XI, 39-40. This splendid chapter on the heroes of Faith, after describing the great procession of witnesses from the days of Abel and Abraham to the days of David and the Prophets, ends with what may be called a Philosophy of History, a Law of Evolution, which links the Present with the Past. There is, according to this profound and original thinker, a relation of reciprocity between successive generations, a mutual dependence, which makes the Present a fulfillment of the Past, and the Past an anticipation of the Present. On the one hand, the present looks back to the past, and out of all its achievements and distinctions recalls as most creative and redemptive the ventures of its faith. By faith Abraham went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith Moses forsook Egypt as seeing Him who is invisible. By faith kingdoms were subdued, righteousness was wrought, weakness was made strong and armies were turned to flight. What seemed at the time a national migration, or a revolt from Pharaoh, or a war with the Philistines, disclosed itself to the philosophic historian as a victory of faith, a venture into the unknown, an invasion of political or economic life by spiritual power. That was what gave dignity and significance to the history of Israel. These all had obtained their good report through faith. That is one side of the doctrine of reciprocity. But the other is set forth with equal clearness. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
