Of our common brotherhood in Adam and in Christ. In the books of Kings we are often referred to the books of the chronicles of the kings of Judah and of Israel. These were registers, which were regularly kept, of all the chief events which happened in either kingdom. And from these registers, and other public documents, the books of Chronicles now before us were compiled, after the return of the Jews from Babylon. They commence with several important genealogies, or lists of fathers and children in succession; which were not only very valuable to the Jews, when they returned into Judæa, in the reestablishment of their church and state, but are also deeply interesting to us, as throwing the light of the most authentic of all records, on the first periods of the history of our race. And especially this first chapter brings home to us the profitable conviction, that all mankind are of one family; all children of the same first parents, all related by brotherhood to each other. Let us then be brethren in deed as we are in kindred. And when we think of our common origin, as a motive to mutual kindness, let us quicken ourselves further to acts of brotherly affection, by remembering, that whilst we all derive from Adam the same mortal nature, we all through Cbrist are made heirs of the same life eternal.

O God, who hast made all nations of one blood, grant that all may be united in one faith! And as they are already one family by descent from Adam, Oh grant that they may become one family by grace in Christ Jesus !
