1. How to Inherit Eternal Life (vv.
1. The Lnwycr's Question (v. 20).
"Lawyer"' here menns ono, versed in
religious law the Scriptures. This
does not mean lawyer In our modern
sense of that term. It would more
nearly correspond to n theological
professor. The lawyer's object was
to trap Jesus to Induce I Urn to take,
such a stand as would weaken Ills In
fluence as a teacher. He. expected
Jesus to set forth some new cere
monies which would conflict with or
disparage the law.
2. Jesus' Question (v. 20). Though
Jesus knew the motive of the lawyer
He did not evade his question. Ho
6ent him to tho law the Held which
was familiar to him. Ho thus was
robbed of his own weapon.
3. The Lnwycr's Beply (v. !27). lie
made an Intelligent answer declaring
that tho entire content of the law
was embraced In love to God and man.
This expresses tha whole of human
4. Jesus Beply (v. 2S.) This
straightforward answer went to tho
henrt of the lawyer. Perfect love to
God and man Is truly the way of life.
No man has yet had or can hava such
love. His sinful condition precludes
Its possibility. Man's failure to meas
ure up to this requirement Is his con
demnation. The lawyer keenly felt
this thrust. He was defeated on his
own grounds and convicted of
II. Who Is My Neighbor (vv. 20
37). 1. The Lawyer's Question (v. 20).
This question reveals the Insincerity
of the lawyer. Christ's answer lind
reached his conscience and now ho
seeks to escape the dltllciilty by ask
ing u captious question. Lawyer-like
ho sought to get off by raising a ques
tion ns to the meaning of words.
2. Jesus' Answer (vv. 3037). Christ's
reply more than answered tho law
yer's question. In the parable of tho
Good Samaritan Ho mnkes cQear who
Is a neighbor, and also what it means
to be a neighbor, or what loving a
neighbor means. Christ's aumver had
a double meaning. He not only made
clear who Is my neighbor, btt made
it clear that the lawyer was not play
ing the neighbor. He thus was con
victed of not hnvlng been a neigh
bor. (1) Who Is my neighbor? Tills des
titute and wounded man left on tho
highway by the robbers Is tho man
who needs n neighbor. My neighbor,
therefore, Is the ono who needs my
help, whether ho lives next door or
on the outside of tho world. Those
who have tho Spirit of Christ can see
their neighbors on every hand.
(2) What being n neighbor means.
Our supreme concern should not bo
"Who is my neighbor?" but "Whoso
neighbor am I?" To bo n neighbor is
(a) to see those about us who need
help (v. 33). Lovo Is kef-n to discern
need. We should be on tho lookout
for those In need of our help.
(b) Have compassion on tho needy
(v. 83). Christ's compassion was
arouBPd as He came Into contact with
those who were suffering and In need.
All thoso who have Ilia nature will
bo llkwlse moved, (c) Give to those
In need (v. 34). Many are willing to
give money to help tho poor and needy,
but are unwilling to personally minis
ter to them. Mnny times the personal
touch is more Important thnn the ma
terial aid. We, should glvo ourselves
ns well as our money, (d) Bind up
wounds (v. 34). (e) Set tho helpless
ones on our bensts while wo wnllc
(v. 34). This Is proof that lovo Is
genuine. Christians will deny them
selves In order to have something to
give to those who have need. Tills
kind of sympnthy Is greatly needed
todny. (f) Bring to tho Inn nnd tnko
care of tho unforlunnto (v. 34). Gen
ulno lovo does not leave Its service In
complete. Much Christian service Is
spasmodic, helps and then leaves a
man to take care of himself, (g) Glvo
money (v? 35). It coMi n good denl
to be n neighbor. Lovo Is the most
expensive thing In tho world. It cost
God Ills only Son. It ec-it Christ Ills
life. May we go nnd do likewise!
When the Last Trump Sounds.

Such as I lovo, I rebuko and chas
