What was the first Adam, when set in his little territory in the garden of Eden, to the eye of God, compared with the second Adam ?-that One, the giver of eternal life, the smitten Rock, who in a moment could fill ten thousand souls with streams of living water. What a contrast! he whose days in the garden of Eden were but a span, whose beginning, a little handful of dust, God breathing into his nostrils the breath of life; and that One, the eternal life in the bosom of the "Father before all worlds-He who could speak the word and give life to corruption-He, the One in whom God could accept those taken out of the pit where they had fallen; having -chosen them in Him before the foundation of the world, to fill them with all spiritual blessings in Him.
