JUNIOR MEMORY VERSE—I John 4: 2L I. The Stupidity of Selfishness, (vv. 30-32). Jesus w’ith his disciples Is on his way to Capernaum for the last time. He is soon to leave for Jerusa lem, where he is to die on the cruel cross for the world’s sins. He still seeks the way of retirement in order to be alone with his disciples, his ob ject being to lead them into the appre hension of the meaning of the cross. The teaching which w r as interrupted at Caeserea by Peter’s rebuke is now ? re sumed, and with definiteness he de clares the future event as already present. 1. “The Son of Man is delivered into the hands of men.’’ 2. “They shall kill him.” 3. “He shall rise the third day/' While pressing upon them continu ously the fact and necessity of the cross, he never failed to show them the bright side —his triumphant vic tory over death In the resurrection. The hearts of the discijiles w’ere so steeped In selfishness that they failed to understand his teachings. If .the disciples had more definitely attended to his teaching concerning the cross, they would have been better prepared for the hour of temptation which was so soon to overtake them. 11. The Wrangling of Selfishness, (vv. 33-37). 1. The searching question (v. 33). The omniscient Christ knew the se crets of their hearts. The fact that the disciples were wrangling about of ficial position W’hile the Lord was fac ing humiliation and death for them and the whole world, shows how com pletely the Lord w r as alone In his sor row. 2. The silent disciples (v. 84). They w r ere ashamed In his presence, because the selfishness of their hearts w r as revealed. To realize the presence of the Lord w ould shame us of much of our selfishness. 3. The stinging rebuke (vv. 35-37). “If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.” The greatest among mefi are those who are willing to take the low est place and serve others. This truth he enforced in a concrete way by plac ing a child in their midst. This child w’as an illustration of dependence and ignorance. By example and w r ord he shows that true greatness Is expressed by willingness to aid the weak, to In struct the ignorant and to serve those In need. All such render service not merely to those In need, but unto Christ ayd God. True greatness, there fore, consists not in self seeking, but rendering cheerful service to the needy in the name of Christ. 111. The Intolerance of Selfishness (vv. 38-41). 1. John’s guilty conscience (v. 38), , In the light of the teaching of Jesus, John w as a little disturbed over having “forbid” a worker for Christ w’ho did not follow after him. Doubtless this intolerance w as in part due to jealousy for Christ, but also a selfish ambition. Many times Christians mistake bigotry for zeal for Christ. 2. Whom to tolerate (vv. 3941). (1) Those who are casting out devils (v. 39). We should really satisfy our selves that supernatural works are be ing done. Are demons being cast out? However, this Is not final, as there is a supernatural work not of God. / . (2) Those who are not doing this work In Christ’s name (v. 41). Any worker going forth In the name of Christ, and for the glory of Christ, should be given Godspeed. If he is doing a good work, even though not In your way, or If not a member of your church or school, “Forbid him not.” IV. The Awful Issue of Selfishness, (w. 42-50). -* Selfishness results In min to others (v. 42), and also to the individual (vv. 43, 45 and 47). In either case the is sue is eternal torment In hell. Selfish ness is opposed to God, and that which Is opposed to God must be eternally separated from Mm, Self-renuncia tion should be so complete thtft we Should be willing to abandon the most accessary and lawful things in life — hands, feet and eyes—when they be come occasions for stumbling cither to ourselves or to others. ■■■■■■■■■■ ■ ■ ■ ■■ ■ mmmmmmmm Tonight!
