YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC
-Christ's Methods of Deullne With Peo
ple. 1. Jesus In tho Home of Friends
There Is no place where true charac
ter Is so clenrly revealed as at home.
1. Ills lteceptlon (v. .13). Martha
was the head of the home, therefore
she received him. It would be a fine
thing If nil homos were open to re
2. Mary Sitting at Jesus' Feet (v.
39). She, of fine spiritual discern
ment, knew that sitting nt the Lord's
feet and hearing His Word was that
which would please him most.
' 3. Martha Cumbered About Much
Serving (v. 40). Both sisters loved
the Lord. It would be Impossible to
say which loved the more; but Martha
was bent on providing a fine meal for
Him. She was trying to do so many
things that she was on the verge of
distraction. This had so completely
got on her nerves that she found fault
with Jesus for permitting Mary to
leave the kitchen to listen to Ills
.teaching. Not only did she crltlclzo
her sister and Jesus, but she assumed
the authority to command Him to send
Mary back to the kitchen to help.
1. Jesus Answer (vv. -11, 42. (1)
Rebuked Martha (v. 41). lie did this
tenderly, for He knew that she loved
Him slnceruly. ('!) Defends Mnry
(v. 42). He declared that but ono
thing was needful, and that Mary had
chosen that good part which could not
be taken away from her.
II. Jesus Among Foes (11:14-23; 29
32; 37-51). . - '
3. Charged With Being In Lengue
Wlth the Devil (v. 14-23). Being un
willing to rccolve Him as the Son of
God, and yet unable to account for
His mighty works, they declared He
was casting .out demons through Beel
zebub, the chief of demons. Jesus
exposed the fallacy of their reasoning
by showing that In that case Satan
would be arrayed against himself, nnd
therefore woutd destroy his own king
dom. 2. Itefuscd to Believe Ills Miracles
(vv. 29-32). They asked for n sign,
to which Ho replied that they would
have a sign fiom heaven In His death
und resurrection. He reminded them,
however, that their request showed
unbelief surpassing that of the heath
en queen of the South, and the wicked
people of Nlnaveh.
3. Wickedness Denounced (vv. 37
51). He pronounced six woes upon
those who were opposing Him und
seeking His destruction.
(1) The Pharisees (vv. 37-41). Theso
He denounced for (a) punctil
iously observing some minute rites and
at the same time breaking the Ten
Commandments. They carefully tithed
tho smnll heibs of tho garden whllo
practicing injustice to their fellow
men and withholding love from God.
I He pointed out to them the folly of
attending to these external acts while,
the heart wan filled wjth wickedness.
(b) Desiring public recognition (v.
43). This Is a common sin today.
(c) For feigning humility (v. 44). He
compares their hypocrisy to graves
which nro on a level with the' ground
and may be stepped upon unconscious
ly by someone, and thus defiled. Wo
can avoid those who make their van-
i lty known by boasting, but some are
filled with thin same wickedness who
do not thus make it known.
(2) Tho Lawyers (vv. 45-54). Jesus'
strictures on the hypocritical Phari
sees aroused tho lawyers, ono of whom
Indignantly declared: "You aro Insult
ing us also." In replying to this
Christ pronounced three woes upon
them; (a) for placing burdensome re
quirements upon the people to which
they themselves would not sumblt
(v. 40). (b) For the murder of God'a
prophets (vv. 47-51). Ho showed
thnt their attitude toward Him was
the same that was fihown to tho
prophets by their fathers, (c) For
keeping back the knowladgo of God
by false Interpretation of the Scrip
tures (vv. 52-51). There Is no
wickedness perhaps so great ns that
of supposed teachers of God's Word
who keep Its precious truths from
the people by perverting Its meaning,
But seek ye first his kingdom, nnd
his rlghtenuMiess; nnd all theso
things shall be added unto you. -Matthew
0:33. . .
Yo have plowed wickedness, yo hnvo
reaped Iniquity; yo have eaten the
fruit of lies. Ilosea 10:13.
Character attains final permanence,
nnd rinnl permanence can come but
once. Joseph Cook.
