Jemn spake unto them, saying. Be of
good cheer; It is I; be not iitrsJd." Mat
Tho mlraclo of tho feeding of tho
five thousand marks a crisis In tho
llfo of Josus. (John C:15). Tho human
ity of Jesus Is shown in that as soon
as lie hnd performed that mlraclo ho
first sends away his disciples, then
sends nway tho multitude, whllo he
departs "Into a mountain to pray." To
pray tho prayer of thanksgiving, to
prny for strength to withstand thla
new lomptntlon, John C:J4, IB); to
pray for thoso whom ho had fed;
and surely to prny for his clioBen ones
Hint they might understand him nnd
Jesus had taken his disciples Into
tho mountain for their own good.
(Mark 6:31) nnd now ho sends them
away lest thoy jleld to tho advice,
tho Importunities, of tho crowd and
consort with them In their desire to
make Jesus a temporal rathor than a
spiritual king Such a course would
havo precipitated matters. But in his
solltudo as he prayed, Jesus wan
watchful of his own.
Ho had sent them Into tho storm
to avoid a greater danger, would ho
not watch over them? So with many
a testing In our lives. They Bcem
severe, hut how little wo know of tho
greater danger we have missed. Ho
saw (v. 4S) their distress long before
they saw their relief v,49). Jesus
knew the need of prayer. Josus fcnew
the need of solltnry prayor as lie must
pa"s tilts crisis, so It vya3 that whllo
ho lingered In prayer they wero dis
tressed till "tho fourth watch," near
lit Considered Test.
It la not strango that thoy did not
recognlzo Jesus. He often comes to
us in ways wo do not at first recog
nize. In ways that at first terrify us,
but ho docs not leavo us long In sus
pense. Wo rend, ho "straightway"
rescued them "It Is 1; bo not afraid."
Notice ho assures them first who it Is
that Is near, "It Is I." Thoy recognlzo
the tones of his familiar volto and
then they wero ready for his words
of confidence, "be not afraid." So God
speaks to us In the hour of out
darkest trial, saying "Lo, I am with
you always;" "bo not afrajd."
From tho parallel account by Mat
thew (Matthew 14' 28-30) wo read of
Peter's attempt to walk upon tho wa
ter. His rash and ill considered tost
of tho reality of Jesus' presence. Then
we seo him as he too compares him
self with the angry storm and taking
his eyes off of Jesus begins to sink.

definite, appeal Is at onco answered

Tho real Interpretation of Christ's
miracles Is not that wo nro to bo

but that wo are to seo tho spiritual

It was a different reception Jesus
received when they reached Genno

him with their sick ones and Mark
with a few deft strokes shows us the
plcturo of a vast deal of healing. None
Is disappointed, for wo read that as
many ns touched him were made

today to a slnglo person, nor limited
to a peculiar place or shrlno.
In this lesson wo seo Jesus direct
