INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC
What Wo Should Give to God.
YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC
-What tho Blblo Teaches About Giving.
The subject of today's lesson is
broader than the text, especially the
verses printed. The best way to teach
this lesson Is to give a survey of the
Muluchl was perhaps contemporary
with Neliemlah probably sustained the
sumo relntlon to Nehemluh that Hag
gal uml Zecharlnh did to Zerubbabel.
After the completion of the walls of
Jerusalem Neliemlah seems to hnve
been called back to the I'erslan court,
but returned to Jerusalem after u
few years. Though outwardly the lives
of the people vtere correct, the prophet
pointed out tin sins of u corrupt priest
hoqd, mixed marriages and a failure to
I. Israel's Base Ingratitude (1:1-5).
Cod approached them with the ten
der nlllrmiitlou "1 have loved you." It
was tlio prophet's burden to declnrcr
tlils fact unto them (v. 1). So formul
and worldly were the people that they
failed to see (Jod's hand upon them.
The attitude of Israel to God Is shown
in the skeptical insinuation "Wherein
hast Thou loved us?" The prophet
answers this by showing God's choice
of Jacob and Ills passing by Esau ; His
destruction or Edom and saving Israel.
II. God's Severe Indictment (1:0
2:17). 1. Against the Priests (1:0-2, 0).
They were guilty (1) of profanity
(1:0). Their profanity was In dfcspls
lug the name of Cod. To fail to honor
Cod is to bo profane. To use Ills
name in u'ny unreal way is to be thus
guilty. (2) Sacrilege (vv. 7, 8). Their
sacrilegious act was In offering pol
luted bread and blemished sacrlilces.
To bring such offerings to an earthly
ruler would he a gross Insult. Gifts
to be acceptable with God must bo
genuine; must cost something. Wo
should give to Cod oir best. There Is
no Intellect too brllllan to offer In tlio
Lord's service. Tho joi.ng should not
esteem their lives wasted who olTer
. them on the altar of missionary sacrl
llce. (.') Creed (1:10). They were
not willing to open the doom of God's
house without pay. Our service should
be out of a heart of Kvo for Cod, not
for prollt. Tills has a vital application
to ministers and evangelists today. To
enter Christian service because of
worldly gain is of thi.? t.vpe. (1) Wear
iness (1:1V,1H). I'.ecause of lack of
love the routine of duty became Irk
some. (.") Net teiuhlug the law to
the people (2:1-0). iiioso set apart
to teach Cod's law to the people have
a great responsibility and Cod will
moit surely demand an accounting.
2. Agulnt the People (2:10-17; 51:7
1."). (1) Kor ungodly marriages (2:11,
12). Cod's purpose In the piohlblthm
of mixed marriages was that He might
raise up lady seed (v. l.i). The mar
riage of the heliovvr with the unbe
liever today brings confusion Into tlio
fold of Cod and turns aside His pur
pose. (2; For divorce (2 :KM0). Di
vorce was the source of great sorrow
even the tears of the wronged wom
en coveting tho altar (v. 111). The of
ferings of a man who had thus treated
ids wife would be an abomination to
Cod. The tears of wronged women
today are going up to Cod and mako
even the prnjeis of some men im
abomination to Him. (.'I) Public
wrongs (3:5, 0). (a) Sorcery magic.
Those who practice such tilings should
be regarded as public offenders, (b)
Adultery. Thlu Is a sin of wider extent
than the parties concerned, (c) Fnlso
swearing, (d) Oppression of the hire
ling, widow and fatherless. (e)
Turned ns'.oo the stranger from his
rights. (4) Blasphemy (:18-ir).
III. The Severe Judgments Which
Shall Befall the Nation 0$:l-5; 4:1-0).
1. Ily Whom Executed. This in
done by the Lord. Judgment has been
committed to the Son of Cod (Acta
2. Time of Second Coming of Christ.
John the Itaptlst was the forerunner
of nis llrst coming. Elijah shall bo
tho forerunner of Ills second coming.
.1. Itesult. Tor the righteous it will
bo a day of healing and salvntlon. To
the wicked it will be n day of burning
and destruction. A book of remom
brnnce Is now being kept. A day of
retiibutlon Is coming.
Even as He Is Pure.
Ileloved, now are we the sons of
Cod, and It doth not yet appear what
we shall be; but wo know that, when
Ho shall appear, we shall he like Him;
for wo shall seo Illm as He Is. And
every mnn that hath tills hope In him
purlfloth himself, even as be Is pure.
