THE GOOD SAMARITAN.
Luke 10:25-37 Jan. 18.
Thou ahslt love thy neighbor thy
mlf." Mark 1J:J1.
Our studies now relate to the last
sis months of our Lord's ministry. lie
knew that lie m-ust, as the antltyplcal
Passover Lamb, be put to death the
following; spring, on the 14th day of
the first month. His ministry had
only begun to awaken the people.
The seventy were sent across
Jordan Into tthe district of re
rea. Jesus went thither shortly after
ward. The purpose of His ministry
was to thoroughly awaken all the Jews
to the fact that the time of their vis
itation had come. The Apostle Paul
tells us that at the Ixrd s death there
were about Ave hundred brethren. But
the witness given by the seventy sub
sequently bore other fruit after Pen
tecost. La'er, the seventy returned, express
ing joy that even the demons were
subject to them in the Father's name.
But the Master told them that they
were overlooking their chief cause of
I Joy, saying. "Rejoice, rather, that
! your names are written in Heaven,"

And so with us. Salvation is a per
sonal matter with us, and works and
preaching are merely incidental. The j

However praiseworthy are the social
uplifts of thei present time, they are
as nothing compared with the great
social and moral uplift which God has
Manned and which Messiah will insti
tute with His kingdom. Hence the
firrt work of God's consecrated people
is fhe preparation of their own hearts
and characters for divine approval,
sharing in the sufferings of the pres
ent time that they may share in the
glorious work of the future.
At this point our study for today
opens. A lawyer thought to entrap the
.Master by asking: "Master, what shall
I do to inherit eternal life?" In those
days, when the only law of Israel was
God's law, a lawyer was one well-versed
in the teachings of Moses. Jesus
therefore said to this theological doc
tor: How do you understand the mat
ter? You know what is written in the
law. The lawyer replied: We shall
love the Lord with all our heart, with
all our soul, with all our strength.
with all our mind: end our neighbor!
as ourselves. Jesus approved this,
saying. Do this, and you shall live.
You will never die.
The lawyer was caught He knew
tha the poopln of Israel had been dy
ing for reuturles. yet himself and oth
ers outwardly claimed that they were
keeping the law. Jesus showed him
from his own testimony that he was
not keeping the law, as he and the
Pharisees pretended to do. The fact
is that no imperfect fallen human be
ing ran keep the perfect law of God;
for It Is so comprehensive that only a
perfect man could keep it thoroughly.
The lawyer sought to make the
best of a bad argument, and turnvd tue
question to Jesus again: "Who Is bmt
neighbor?" Whom am I to love as my
self? This was one of the points which
Jesus had particularly made against
the Pharisees that outwardly they
were pious, religious, they prayed,
fasted, etc.: ye- in their hearts they
were unjust and would take advantage
of widows and orphans not loving
these as themselves. The luwyer
sought to Imply that God's law did not
Includo everybody as his neighbor, but
culy certain ones.
Jesus, however, again outgeneraled
him. saying. A certain man went
uuu i jcinuu, nuu on luai joueiy ;
mountain road ho was beset by
thieves, who stripped him. wounded
him and left him half dead. There
happened that way a priest, one of
the highest representatives of the law.

have accepted Christ that love fulfills
the law. For those who become dis

arrangement, that the merit of Jesus'
sacrifice shall cover their blemifchep,
eo that if they possess the heart qua!

Now, said Jesus to 'he lawyer,
which of these men acted the part of
the neighbor to this man who fell
among the thieves? Which fulfilled the
requirements of the law. think you?
The lawyer answered. "He that show
ed mercy on him." Jesus replied tha'.
this should be an example to the law
yer to do likewise., to be kind,
thoughtful, generous, toward any hu
man being In need of help.
We do well to remember God's real
object In giving laws, commandment,
etc. He is not taking pleasure, espe
cially in the number of tlmt s that we
bow the knee or the head, or attend
divine worship or In anything that we
can do along the lines of outward wor
ship. The Ird especially delights to
see us cultivate Mis own kplrit of love, i
kindness and generosity. "God Is
lore; and be that dwelleth in love j
dwelleth In God," (1 John 4:16). "He
that loveth not his brother whom he
bath seen, bow can be love God. whom
he hath not seen?" how could be
know that he loves God? (1 John 4.20).
