y,E GRIATEST-THE SERVANT.
Matthew 20:17-34.-August 21.

MBIlTION mve the wcrld-selfish ambition. A certain kind of ambi
tion-to piease God ard to have svr,wards, is encouraged by the
exceeding great and precious promises of God's Word. Think of the
promise held out to the consecrated, self-sacrificing followers of
Jesus-that, if faithful unto death, they shall receive the "crown of life,"
- immorth-lity, and attain a place with their Master in his Throne-as participants
in the glories and honors of his Kinadom! There is no earthly appeal to am

The prospect of the Kingdom was bright before the minds of the apostles.

tuned a promise that they should sit, the one on the right hand ant the other d
on the left hand of the Great King when his Kingdom should he established.
This. request drew from the Great Te::cher the suggestiIn tam -
and ambitious disciples had, perhaps, not fully counted the cost of such exalta
tion, He inquired if they were willing to drink of his cup of ignominy anld
Teproach and if they were willing to be haptized with his baptism. into his
death-the sacrifice of all earthly interests. They had counted the cost, and
promptly responded as to their willingness. They had learned well the lessols
of the Great Teacher. lie assured them that with this willingness of mind the
privilege would be theirs of sharing his ignominy and his death and of sitting
with him on his Throne. But as respects th chief positions, tl:ey were not at
bis disposal. At the conclusion of the t.tings of his people, those positions orf
bighest honor in the Kingdom next to himself will be given according to the
just standards which the Father has prepared and established. How we can
rejoice with those apostles in the fullness of their consecration and in the
assurances of the Master! And we also should strive by faithfulness to attain
a place with the Master in his Throne, as members of his Body, the Church. 10
The ambition of James and John was shown In their desire for places of
special nearness to the Lord. Jesus did not reprove them specifically, but 10
Indirectly. When the other ten heard how these two had sought to bespeak 10
the chief places of honor they were indignant. The Master took advantage of
the incident to show how different is God's judgment from that of men. With 1
3nen the aggressive and powerful hold the lordship and dominion over others,
but in the Divine arrangement the order is reversed. God will honor most and 10
put in the highest positions. the humble, the submissive, the meek. On this 10
incident the Lord bdsed a general instruction to his followers on the necessity 10
for humility. We are to take the Divine standpoint and honor most in t&e 10
Church those who most serve tne Church. and not those who demand service
and honors and seek self-exaltation. Our Lord pointed to his own course as
an illustration: they acknowledged him as their Master and yet no one served
them so much as did he. Indeed, he came into the world not to be sel ved, but
to serve others, even to the extent of laying down his life as the ransom price
for the many, for the world, to be applied for their release from sin and death 11
condemnation in God's due time-during the Messianic Kingdom. 11
journeying on the Master had an opportunity of exemplifying his position
as a servant. Two blind men, learning that he was passing. exercised such
faith that they bailed him as the Messiah, the Son of David, entreating Mercy,
Help, Relief. Instead of passing them by, saying, You are only blind beggars,
anyway, the Master stopped and called them to him and, in response to their
request, touched their eyes, and immediately they received sight. Other
Scriptures indicate that the Great Teacher's miracles were not performed 11
'without cost to himself. "Virtue (vitality) went out of him and healed them 11
all." (Luke 6:19.) 1
He who was rich, for our sakes became poor, humbling himself to serve 1
the humblest and poorest unfortunates! Here we have an illustration of the
spirit of meekness, the spirit of service, which must characterize the hearts,
and, in some degree, control the lives of all true followers, disciples, of the1
Great Teacher. If it is not in our power to open the eyes of the physically
blind, it is in our power to help many to a clearer insight into the things of
-God which the natural eye bath not seen, nor ear beard-the things which God
bath in reservation for them that love him and that, loving him, follow in the
footsteps of Jesus.-(1 Cor. 2:9). Let us, then, seek theatrue, God-given ambi
tion; but let us specially seek to know and to do the will of o.ur Father in
