LADIES' SALE AT NORWICH.-We thankfully invite attention to the note circulated by the Ladies' Committee of the Norwich Auxiliary :-"The present position of the BRITISH JEWS' SOCIETY calls for renewed and increased effort on its behalf, from all the friends of Israel. In order to help the present low state of its funds, it is purposed to have a SALE OF NEEDLEWORK &c., in Jan.next; we earnestly plead for your kind co-operation in the work."-Articles sent to 1, Crescent Place, before Jan. 1, will be carefully forwarded.
The MonthLY MEETING of Jewish and Gentile Christians, for Prayer and Scriptural Conference, will be held at the Office, 1, Crescent Place, New Bridge Street, Blackfriars
, on WEDNESDAY EVENING, Dec. 19, at Seven o'Clock.—The Meeting is open to all the friends of Israel.
The Committee respectfully entreat attention to their plea for New-YEAR'S OFFERINGS for liquidating the debt, and enabling the Society to continue its exertions unembarrassed and with renewed vigour. Again, too, they ask for special prayer, that the present favourable relation in which Jews and Christians stand to each other may be improved to the highest spiritual advantage. Let us continue in prayer until the little cloud is visible on the horizon, which shall overspread the heavens, and pour down on the well-sown field “ showers of blessing."

“ From this day I will bless you."-Haggai ii. 19. ISRAEL, freed from Babylonian captivity, had been summoned to the privilege of rebuilding the Temple of the Lord. Through fear or worldly influence, their zeal had slackened, and they had sheltered their lukewarmness under the plea, " The time is not yet,” while they were adorning their own houses, and providing for their own comfort. But it pleased the Lord to interrupt their selfish enjoyments, and to disappoint their worldly plans. They “ looked for much, and, 1o, it came to little," and
lo “when said Jehovah) ye brought it home, I did blow upon it. Why? saith the Lord of Hosts. Because of mine house that is waste, and ye run every man to his own house." Then was the spirit of their pious leaders stirred up, and the smitten hearts of Israel turned to the Lord : " And
they came, and did work in the house of the Lord of Hosts, their God.” : His hand had lain heavy upon them, but“His Spirit remained among them.” And as they gave themselves afresh to the service, their Father's
eye was ll on them, and His heart was full of love to them, as He uttered these words: “From this day will I bless you.”
Here, on the morning of a New Year, let us for a moment pause; and as the first beam of day discovers, inscribed on the altar of secret devotion, the Ebenezer of grateful hearts, let earnest prayer mingle with the incense of praise. “Show me thy ways, O Lord; teach me Thy paths. Wherein I have done evil, I will do so no more.” Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?"
Our last year has been one of peculiar trial, and, in part, arising from a
VOL. XI, NEW SERIES, VOL. II.
cause that has filled our hearts with sorrow, and our eyes with tears, and which still awakens feelings only to be breathed in fervent prayer before Him who is rich in mercy to all who call upon Him. But we sing of mercy blended with judgment. The pecuniary embarrassment of the Society was made known throughout the country-many a chord of Christian sympathy responded to our appeals, and evidence flowed in upon us of a deeper and more extensive interest in the cause of Israel than we had thought to exist. Freewill offerings in different forms, accompanied by sentiments of hallowed devotion, relieved the pressure beyond our fears, although not yet quite equal to our desire; and our Missionaries' records have supplied delightful proofs, that “the Spirit of God remaineth" among the faithful labourers.
It has been an occasion of thought, of prayer, of anxious desire never to be forgotten : and now we stand before God, looking over into another year, earnestly desiring to realise the promise, “From this day will I bless you," and to pursue the way in which we may expect its fulfilment.
Much of time and effort has been devoted to the relief of monetary difficulty. This must not be neglected; but as we breathe more freely, may we lay it more deeply, more unceasingly to heart how we may best promote the one great object we have in view, and by which we too may help to build the house of the Lord.
1. The first place must be assigned to prayer,-intelligent, specific, persevering prayer, ever intermingled with emotions of filial gratitude, and an affectionate sense of what the Lord has done for us and by us. Not only does this form the divinely-appointed link of connexion between the promise and its fulfilment, but it places us in the right position for receiving and improving the blessing. Self-love would gather the blossom, and wear it as an ornament: prayer waits for the fruit, and enfolding it in the praises of the heart, lays it at the Saviour's feet.
II. The very character of our work summons us to consistent and progressive piety. If eminent piety is essential to eminent usefulness* in Gentile missions, it is, if possible, still more so for those who seek the spiritual good of the seed of Abraham. Let our Jewish brethren see, let them feel Christianity in all its purity, its manliness, its loving-kindness, wherever they track our path, or meet our influence. That it may be so, let us live the third chapter of the epistle to the Philippians: let us “ walk in the Spirit," and maintain the spiritual conflict, “ looking unto Jesus.”
III. Earnestness, straightforwardness, and faith in pursuing our object, with singleness of heart, as to the Lord and not to man. Humbled we may well be, under instances of human failure, and ashamed we ought to be, if such instances are allowed to hold us back from our heaven-directed way. Let our convictions rest on the Word of God our humble ministry be formed on the model of the Saviour's—and let the spirit enkindled by Him in the heart of Paul pervade ours,—and we shall not be discouraged at the scantiness of apparent success, or by the lukewarmness of those who have not yet caught the sacred flame; but, in all humility, we shall gird ourselves afresh and go forward, “ from this day and upward," in the dependence of prayer, and in the joyfulness of hope, that “ from this day'' our God will bless. From every quarter there are indications of mercy for
