Purity Sermon Illustrations

In his life of John Locke, Fowler quotes this sentence of Horace Walpole about one of Locke's friends, Lord Som-
mers: "Lord Sommers was one of those driven men who, like a chapel in a palace, remain unprofaned while all the rest is tyranny, corruption, and folly." We cannot choose the surroundings and environment of our work. We cannot even choose the home into which we have been born. If there are those who feel that the Christian life is one of great difficulty for them, but that if only they had a different environment and atmosphere they could be better Christians, let them remember that there were saints in Caesar's household, and saints at Satan's seat in ancient Pergamos. Them Christ salutes and commends.
