LESSON FOR AUGUST 4.
THE WORTH OF THE KINGDOM.
LKSSON TRXT? Matthew 13. *a-M
OOLDIM TEXT?**alsst* y? firs' Ms
klrigdoro, anil his righteousness: arni all
?these thlnjrs shall be avldeJ unto you."
We have studied some of tie prin?
ciples that are to obtain In the es?
tablishing and the working out of this
new kingdom Jesus c;m:e to found,
and the question naturally arisen, "Is
lt of sufficient value for me to con?
sider or seek to enter it, or to possess
lt?" In our Ifsson today there is Mt
before us I. - parables (Jehus' favo. '9
way of teaching) which he gave p.v
ately to his disciples and '-ot to the
multitude, that ought to ai.'uer any ?
such questioning In our hear-?
The first two have to do aith the
great value of the kingdom, t ? rec
ond Its mixed character and final ;? ? i
ration, and the last, the great res,
slbllity of those who possess I
truths. In this entire group of par?
ables found In the thirteenth chapter
of Matthew are four that are for men
"who are careful to observe the out
*ward development, and four others
that are for those men of faith v ho
see beneath the surface the hld len
things of the kingdom. Those men
who view the kingdom, in each par?
ticular age as God sees rather tl.an
as man observes.
Today's lesson sets forth the pur
chase of things of great value. thc ac?
quisition and dLsposttion of thin*;- of
a mixed value, and lastly, the use of
these values after coming Into the pos?
session of them.
I. The hidden treasure, v. 4! Per?
haps more properly this should be
termed the parable of the bought field.
Wa need to remember that ia all of
these parables the Master himself is
the important personage. He ls the
one who sows the seed. etc. Hence
we understand that he is the one
who discovers this great treasure hid?
den in the field. Hay has already told
us that "the field ls the world'' (Matt
Symbolism cf Pearls.
II. The pearl of great price, vs. 45,
46. This parable ls very much the'
same as the foregoing, yet lt adds great
strength and force to this study in
value*. We ought to be very clear in
our study and appli"ition. The pearl
of great price uia> perhaps bs taken
as a symbol of our salvation, but if
so for us to Interpret the merchant?
man as tbe eomuji mitty ol man would
be for the sinner to purchase his own
salvation, a thing as far as possible
for the New Testament teaching.
Why does Jesus sjieak of pearls to
the Hebrews who di ! not esteem them
at all? What is tha symbolism of a
pearl? The pearl ls the one precious
stone that is the result of a li\ir.g
organism: it ls the result of an injury
done, to the life of the oyster. It has
always stood for purity and for in- ?
nocence. Is lt then illogical for us to
assume that Chri.-t is the merchant?
man who gave all to redeem ie. g..
buy back) the lost souls of mankind?
III. The drag net. vs. 47 -M. This
parable ls another that deals with the
mixed character of the kingdom here
upon the earth and of the final so; ara
tion incident t'-^roto. lt is t -*' eabla
that this Is i.a votive, not i: , loni,
fishing. There will be many move
"" j ments that will ostensibly bo for the
. I gathering of men into this kingdom,
but the principle here laid Iowa is
that one considered in the lesson of
the wheat and the tares, viz., that ul?
timately there shall be cast ont all
things that do offend. In the finality
of all things tho kingdom all be
without spot or blemish. Hence we
do not read Into this parable .??* tr
isis upon any phase of smug lism.
Search the Scriptures.
TV. The householder, vs. 51-53. In
the first of these parables we bad the
Word as the seed of this new kingdom,
In this the eighth of thc kingdom par?
ables we revert as lt w* . >* to the mat?
ter of the Word. Jesus asks his
disciples If they nuder trad the Word
he has spoken to them. Their re?
sponse ls. "Yes, we clo." Then Jesus
shows them what a I" rd en of respon?
sibility due to possession rests upon
them. Jesus re'er; to the Scribes
whose work Radi .he Jewish econ?
omy was to transcribe and to interpret
?. and tells the disciples that they in a
k like manner are to Interpret the king
dom to all men They ure to "hiing
forth" hidden treasaT s Va's most re?
member that Jesus taught in par.ibVs
that "hearing they might not hi;.:."
etc.. hence we are to s?>ar,i-h the
Scriptures and bring forth these hid?
den treasures of truth as we ga about
doing our part.
Are we willing to pay the price for
a mt the sake-of the pearl? Are we willing
Lw to pay the price of the 1*1*1 that oth?
ers may possess the great treasure cf
eternal life in Christ T Ho,-paid the
price to purchase eternal life for us.
Do not forget the kim*doni is not eat?
ing and drinking, but righteousness
and Joy and peace In the Holy Spirit
The treasure **as discovered, the
pearl sought after; both methods
,1 have their place and significance in
** our lives that are to be hld\wlth
Christ in God. W? must reveal to th*
world Cleat treasures.
