YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC
-Public Health Problems.
'like teachings of this lesson have an
Important bearing upon physical
health, but the primary reference is
moral. The sin with which Paul was
tlealiug was fornication, not matters of
hygiene. That physical health may be
included we tlo not question, but sad
sod serious will be the blunder if that
vnly is taught.
I. Glorifying God in Your Body (I
Cor. 6:19, 20.
It should be noted that the last
clause of verse 20 is omitted in the R
vised Version and the best manu
scripts. The conclusion of Paul's argu
ment is, "therefore glorify God In your
1. The Christian's body is the temple
of the Holy Ghost (v. 19). God's
dwelling place on earth is now the re
deemed human body Instead of the
temple at Jerusalem. If the sinless
Spirit is to dwell in the body it must
be kept clean. To defile or abuse the
body in any way is to insult the Spirit
nd commit the most awful sacrilege.
This truth apprehended solves forever
the problem of licentiousness, gluttony,
use of tobacco, the abuse or neglect of
the body in any way whatsoever.
2. The Christian's body is God's
property (v. 19). Being God's temple,
the proprietary right is in God and not
bum. P.elng the property of the Lord,
the Christian's motto is, "Whether
berefore ye eat or drink, or whatso-
ver ye do, do all to the glory of God
I Cor. 10:31). "Holiness unto the
ord" ought to be written over our
3. The Christian's body has been
ought (v. 20). The price paid to re-
em the body, was the precleus blood
mate things hy what Jhey cost When
we estimate our bodies in that light
we will be very jealous of their purity.
Guarding our health is part of our re
ligion. II. Keeping the Body Under Con.
trol (I Cor. 9 : 24-27).
The Christian's life is more than
mere existence, there is something to
lo to be accomplished.
1. It is a race (vv. 24, 25). In order
to win a prize there must be self-denial
and definite exertion. The Chris
tian obtains life by contact with Jesus
Oirist through faith (John 3:16; 3:30;
5:24). This he possesses before he can
legin the race. While he gets salva
tion (life) at the beginning, God places
before him definite rewards as incent
ives to exertion. The Christian be
lieves to get life, but works for re
wards. In the Olympian games only
tne could hope to get the prize, but in
the Chrlstiun race there Is a reward
waiting for every one who disciplines
liimself and runs. As the racer in these
games mastered Ids desires and ab
stained from everything which might
hinder him to win the prize, so the
Christian will make any sacrifice to
win. The prize in the Grecian games
was corruptible, but the prize of the
Christian is incorruptible. ' If the
heathen would practice such self-de-nial
regardless of its paiu for a gar
land of pine leaves, shall not the Chris
tian turn from bodily indulgences of
wery kind so as to obtain the crown
of righteousness which fadeth not
2. It is a fight (vv. 20, 27). The
Christian's efforts are not mere beat
ings of the air. He has a real antag
onist. His fight is not a sham conflict,
lie should exert himself with all his
energy, and strike to hit his enemy. In
order to win success the body must be
kept under. In this case the antagonist
Is the body. It should be so dealt
with as to bring it under subjection.
All the evil propensities of his nature
should be brought under control.
III. Reaping What You Sow (Gal.
God has established a law in the
world that whatsoever a man sows that
shall he also reap. To go on sowing
with the expectation of not reaping is
to mock God. The world Is full of ex
amples of those who thus mocked Him.
Tliis text has primary reference to
giving to the support of ministers of
the gospel ; its real bearing is upon the
leliever for his stinginess, rather than
upon the sinner for his meanness, but
It has a bearing on all that we do.
