And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.…
"All men seek for Thee." Yes, they are tired of their sectarian wranglings; they are wearied out with their ineffectual metaphysical analysis; they are sick of the poor results yielded up by material research; they have lost confidence in their own self-will; they prize no longer their self-conceit; they long to be brothers in the embrace of one common Father, and none can bring them together but Christ. "All men seek for thee." Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
(J. A. Picton, M. A.)
