Luke 0:1-10:24.
December 3, 1922.
Jesus sent out His twelve apostles
as the first regularly appointed Chris
tian missionaries. He gave them a
double commission. They were to
preach the gospel and work miracles
of healing as a proof of their divine
commissions. He tells them that they
are not to provide for their own ne
cessities, but to expect those to whom
they preached to provide what they
needed. Christ lays down a great
principle, which the Apostle Paul ex
presses (1 Cor. 9:14) very strikingly,
"So hath the L.ord ordained that they
which preach the Gospel should live
of the Gospel." He brings out very
clearly the thought that the preacher
is to be naid for his services just as
any other man is paid for his work.
Too many people think of what they
pay the preacher as a benevolence
bestowed upon hiin, as a kind of char
ity. The preacher works and should
be paid.
The Apostles had a very success
ful missionary tour, and when they
returned Jesus took them off into a
quiet place in the country in order
that they might rest and talk over
their experiences with Him. But the
people followed Him and would give
Him no time to rest.
Jesus never complained because of
what He had to do. So He had noth
ing to say in objection to the people
coming to Him on thi3 occasion. The
interest of the people in His teach
ing was shown in their staying with
Him all day without food. In His
compassion for them, He told the dis
ciples to feed them. They reported
that all the food they could find was
a small boy's lunch, nve loaves
(rather biscuits) and two small fish
(John G : 9 ) . With this limited sup
ply He fed 5,000 men.
Jesus will always take what we
bring to Him and multlpiy it and use
it, no matter how small it may seem
to us to be.
When He did finally get off in some
quiet place with His disciples. He
asked them as to what they had heard
on their journey, showing men's opin
ion of Him. When these answers
were given, He then asked the dis
ciples what they thought of Him. Peter
at once announced his belief in His
divinity and His being the promised
Messiah (Christ, God's anointed one).
Jesus then makes a very clear state
ment in regard to His death, but the
disciples could not take in His mean
ing.
A week after this Jesus took Peter,
James and John, His inner circle of
disciples, up on the Mount of Trans
figuration. There we have one of the
many instances of His praying. And
while He prayed that wonderful
transformation took place in His ap
pearance. There Moses and Elijah
joined Him and talked with Him "of
His decease which He should accom
plish at Jerusalem."
Peter was so delighted with the ex
perience of being in the company of
these three heavenly beings, that he
wanted to stay there, not considering
the fact that such a course would de
prive the other disciples and the rest
of the people of the presence, work
and teaching of Jesus. Many of us
are just as selfish about our religion.
We enjoy it ourselves and do not stop
to think that others need it just as
much as we do.
Jesus showed these three, when
they came down from the mountain
