"As an eagle stirreth up her nest, that fluttereth over her young, he spread abroad his wings, he took them, he bare them on his pinions."

That picture is full of poetry, full of life and truth and beauty.  Mark it.  Have you ever seen an eagle stir up her nest?  You know what happens.  There in the nest, right upon the rocky heights, are the eaglets.  The mother eagle comes and, taking hold of them, flings them out of the nest. They were so comfortable there, but she flings them right out of the nest, high above the earth.  They begin to fall straightway. They never have been in air before; they have always been in the nest.
Is not that mother bird cruel?  Why does she disturb the eaglets?

Watch her and you will understand.  As long as you look upon the struggling eaglets in the air you miss the point.  Watch the eagle.  Having stirred up her nest, "she spreadeth abroad her pinions," the pinions that beat the air behind her as she rises superior to it.  Where are the eaglets?  Struggling, falling; she is superior; they are falling.  Then what does she do?  "She beareth them on her pinions."  She swoops beneath them, catches them on her wings, and bears them up.  What is she doing?  Teaching them to fly.  She drops them again, and again they struggle in the air, but this time not so helplessly.  They are finding out what she means.  She spreads her pinions to show them how to fly, and as they fall again, she catches them again.  That is how God
deals with you and me.

Has he been stirring up your nest?  Has he flung you out until you feel lost in an element that is new and strange?  Look at him. He is not lost in that element.  He spreads out the wings of omnipotence to teach us how to soar. What then?  He comes beneath us and catches us on his wings.  We thought when he flung us out of the nest it was unkind.  No; he was teaching us to fly that we might enter into the spirit of the promise, "They shall mount up with wings as eagles."  He would teach us how to use the gifts which he has bestowed on us, and which we can not use as long as we are in the nest.

Fancy keeping eaglets in the nest!  It is contrary to their nature, contrary to the purposes for which they are framed and fitted.  There is a purpose in the eagle. What is it?  Flight upward.  There is a purpose in your life, newborn child of God!  What is it?  Flight God-ward, sunward, heavenward. if you stop in the nest you will never get there.  God comes into your life and disturbs you, breaks up your plans, and extinguishes your hopes, the lights that have lured you on. He spoils everything; what for?  That he may get you on his wings and teach you the secret forces of your own life, and lead you to the higher development and higher purposes.  The government of God is a disturbing element, but, praise his name! it is a progressive element.

New Pastors Sermon

Did you hear the story about the new pastor that preached a beautiful sermon on his first Sunday in the new church?

However, the second Sunday he got up and preached the same sermon word for word as he had the Sunday before. The third and fourth Sundays were identically the same thing.

On the fifth Sunday he got up and said, "how many of you think you know what I am going to preach about?" Not a hand was raised. The pastor said, "Well, since I have already preached it four times and you still don't know what I have to say to you, it's not going to be worth my time preaching it. You are all dismissed."

On the sixth Sunday he asked, "How many of you think you know what I am going to preach about?" Since they had checked with each other during the week about how to handle the situation, every single hand was raised.

"Well," said the pastor, "since you already know what I am going to say, I really don't see any need to bore you with the sermon all over again. You are dismissed."

Seventh Sunday--the congregation was prepared for him. When he stood to ask how many thought they knew what he was going to preach about everyone on the left side of the church raised their hands and no one on the right side did. They were going to get him to preach again one way or the other. As he surveyed the situation he simply replied, "Well, those of you on the left tell those of you on the right and then you can go home. You are dismissed!"
