In a mighty auditorium are four men. They really desire to come together, but neither will come to another’s corner. In the center of the room is a beautiful fountain. Finally someone proposes that they all meet at the fountain. They start for the common center.
They come forty, fifty, one hundred feet. The nearer they come to the fountain, the nearer they come to each other, each making concessions of location and space. At last they reach their destination, and clasp hands around the sparkling waters of the fountain.
Jesus Christ, the great fountain of life, liberty, and love, is set up in the center of the world. The nearer God’s children come to Christ, the nearer they will come to each other. Let us hasten the day when we can all clasp hands and sing, “Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love.”
Take Away: Jesus Christ, the great fountain of life, liberty, and love, is set up in the center of the world.
