Mark's Contribution to Christianity.
I. Mark' Home Life (Acta 12:12).
He had the wholesome Inlluenco of
a Christian home, for his mother was
godly woman. There Is no heritage
to be compared to that of a godly
tome. Nothing ha nt- !i a far-reach-'!;
Influence upon the life of a young
man as the memory of a praying moth
.r. liven when it was so perilous to
be known ns a follower of Jesus, she
vviib not afraid to have a prayer meet
ing In her home.
II. Mark With Jesus In Gethsemane
(Mark 14:01, 52).
At the sight of the Roman guard,
the disciples "all forsook Him and
fled." This timid lad still followed
the Lord till laid hold on by the young
men. He then lied, leaving behind
him his linen garment, This Geth
semnne experience doubtless had a
decided effect upon his life.
III. Mark a Servant of Paul and
Darnabas (Acts 12:25-13:5).
Mark was with the company when
Peter told of his wonderful releaso
from prison. This, doubtless, made a
f,reat Impression upon him nnd was
the beginning of his desire to accom
pany the missionaries of the cross.
He was not a missionary on the samo
footing as Paul nnd liarnubas, but an
attendant upon them to look after
IV. Mark Deserting Paul and Barna
bas (Acts 13:13)
We are not told the cause of this
desertion. Three conjectures, one or
all of which had u bearing upon his
action, aro offered.
1. Homesickness. Ills home wna of
easy circumstances If not wealthy. As
they were carrying the gospel Into the
rough, mountainous country, occupied
by rough, half-civlllzed people, tho
mettle of this young servant was tried.
We ought not to condemn him too
readily, for we know how trying It Is
to leave home when struggling against
the rough world. While sympathizing
with him, we must remember that
duty Is stronger than the tender ties
of life. The time conies when the sol
dier must spurn the ties which bind
him to father, mother, wife and chil
dren, In response to the call of duty.
The missionary must turn his back
upon home, native land, and friends In
his devotion to his Lord.
2. Disbelief In Foreign Missions.
There was a common prejudice among
the Jews against taking the gospel to
the Gentiles. When he snw that these
missionaries were going to the "re
gions beyond," his prejudice may have
caused him to turn back.
3. Cowardice. Tho dangers before
them were not Imnglnury but real.
Tho missionary today faces awful dan
gers: climate, wild beasts, deadly ser
pents and Insects, and savage and can
nibalistic men. However, fear is no
excuse for cowardice because we nro
linked to the Almighty by faith ; tlicro
Is nothing in heaven or on earth that
can harm us. Courage la required of
those who would do tho Lord's work.
V. Mark With Peter In Babylon (I
Seme yoars after Mark's desertion,
when Paul and Darnabas were arrang
ing for n second evangelistic tour,
they had a sharp dlsputo over the
question of taking Mark with them.
Paul would not consent to Mark's nc
compnnylng them, so "they depnrtcd
asunder ono from the other." Mark
went with his uncle. Dy this time ho
must Iinve been cured of his covvurdlco
for we see him associated with Peter
VI. Mark Honored by Paul (II Tin?.
Paul Is now an old man In prison.
Marl; Is a middle-aged man assoclnteA
with Timothy nt Kphesus. Mnrk had
proved" himself, for Paul gives tho
pleasing testimony that "he Is profit
able unto me for the ministry." Mark
Is an example of one who made good
In spite of his early bacL'slldlng.
The world's battlefields have been In
the heart chlelly; more heroism has
been displayed In the household and
ihe closet than on the most meuiorablo
batllellelds of history. 11. V. IJeecl.er.
