Christ's Missionary Kial.
I. The Missionary Motive (Mutt.
As Jesus saw tlie multitude Ills
compassion was aroused. Their pitiful
condition moved llliu to tuke steps to
provide inisM'inarlos. The result of
this was the sending forth of tho
Twelve. Jesus saw the multitude as:
1. Shephenlless Sheep (v. K(5). The
people were In need of a protector,
provider and guide, Just as sheep are
of a shepherd. They were faint nntl
scattered distressed, cast down and
hopeless. What a picture of the needy
world today 1 The world Is hungry
but knows not how to have tills hun
ger satlsiled. They know not which
way to turn in their confusion and
perplexity. They are In need of that
which alone the (lood Shepherd enn
2. drain Uady for Harvest (v. 7).
He told the disciples that the grain
was ripe, ready for the harvest, and
that unless laborers were secured the
harvest would be lost. This Is still a
picture of tho world. The laborers are
still few. It Is the Lord's harvest tlmt
Is ready to he gathered. No wonder
Ho was moved with compassion I
Those who have eyes to see and hearts
to feel are still moved with compas
sion as they see the world ready to be
gathered into Christ's fold but no one
to perforin the labor. The means for
securing laborers for Ihe harvest Is
prayer. He urged tho disciples to
pray that tha Lord would send forth'
II. Classes of Missionaries (Luke
Three cinsses are here enumerated:
1. Jesus Himself (v. 1). He ls the
grand and supreme missionary. All re
ceive their example itnl power from
Him. lie left all nnd gave all in tills
2. The Twelve (v. 1). Christ called
them nntl sent them foith. They were
Ills representatives and were clothed
with Ills power. Missionaries should
bo chosen and commissioned by tho
Lord himself. In the evnngellzntlon of
the world. there will always be need of
the group of men and women devoted
exclusively to Unit work.
:i. Certain Women (vv. 2, .'). Chrlo
tian women can most effectively do
their part In preaching the gospel by
ministering to the workers. All who
have experienced the saving grace of
(lod desire to have u part in bending
tho gospel to others that they too
might be saved. The church Is greatly
indebted to the work of consecrated
III. The Missionary Message (John
The salvation which Is offered. to the
lost world was accomplished through
the sacrificial death of Christ. Out
of n heart of love God gave His own
son to die. The llgtire portraying tho
method of the Cross and salvation Is
that of the brazen serpent. The out
standing tec chlng us suggested by Dr.
Charles K. fcrdinnu ls us follows:
"1. That men are, like the Israel
ites of olt serpent-bitten; but tho
deadly poison is the sting of sin.
"2. (toil has provided a remedy In
the person of His Son; In Ills cruci
fixion we stv sin vniupiished, as tho
uplifted serpent pictured the death of
tlie destroye.!; yet as the uplifted ser
pent was not real but one of brass, so
Christ was not really a partaker of
sin hut only inutle In the likeness of
"a. As it was necessary for tho dy
ing Israelites to accept God's pro
vision, and villi submission nnd faith
to look upon the brazen serpent, bo
It Is necessity for us to look In re
pentnnco and faith to the crucified
Snvior and to commit ourselves to God
us He ls graciously revealed In Jesus
Christ. If wo. refuso to accept Christ
wc perish, but faith results In eternal
"1. This provision Is mnde by the
love of God nntl Is freely offered to
everyone who helleveo. Tor God so
loved tho world, that Ho gave Ills
only begotten Son, that whosoever be
lleveth In Him should not perish, tint
havo everlasting life.' "
When we have broken our god of
tradition, and eeasetl from our god of
rhetoric, then niny God fire the heart
