Che goKrett (Teak "^'*a«2ts:ts: Lvv^,;* ;·*** '' V. ^ .« ,, . - ' A Mark 1:34--"And he healed many lhat ucrc sick." By DR. ALVIN E. BELL (The International Uniform Lesson on the above topic lor Jan. 23 is Mark 1:29-45, the Golden Text being. Mark 1:34. "And he healed many that were sick. 11 ) IT IS NEVER far from the place of divine worship to the place of service to our fellowmen. So our lesson opens: "And straightway, when they were come out of the synagogue, they came Into the house of Simon and .Andrew, with James and John. Now Simon'.i wife's mother lay sick of a fever: and straightway they tell him of her: and he came and took her by the hand, and raised her up: and the fever lc(t her. ana she ministered unto them." Are we telling the Good Physician of our sick and bringing him to them as did these early followers of our Lord ? How promptly and effectively tlic Lord responds to such appeals of human need: "They tell him of her: and he came, and lock her by the hand, and raised her up." Authority Over Disease In last Sunday's lesson there was displayed Jesus' authority In the realm of doctrine: "They were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority." His authority even extended to the realm of demons: "For wl-.h authority." they said, "he commandcth even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him." Again he asserts his authority, this time in the realm of disease. Luke the physician tells us that it was "a great fever" with which Simon's wife's mother "was holdcn". and that Jesus "stood over her and rebuked the fever; and It left her." And the word Luk« used here for "rebuked" Is the same word he used to describe Jesus' exercise ot authority over the evil spirit. This authority of Jesus in the realm of disease was displayed on a wider scale at sunset of that busy day. when "they brought unto him all that were sick, and them that were possessed with demons. And all the city was gathered together at the door. And he healed many that were sick with divers diseases, and cast out many demons; and he suffered not the demons to speak, because they knew him." Source- of Authority Jesus, walking among; the rows of sick and afllictcd brought to his door that evening, Is the picture of the Good Physician meeting perfectly a dying world's every need. That sunset marked "the end of a perfect day". How that day and every day of the Good Physician's busy life began, are told us next: "In the morning, a great while before day, he rose up and went out, and departed into a desert place, and there prayed." When his disciples found him, and gently chidcd him for this, as it must have seemed to them, waste of time from a busy day. saying. "All arc seeking thee," he replied, "Let us go elsewhere Into the next towns, that I may preach there also; for to this end came 1 forth." As much as to say, "I know it is to be a busy day, therefore I came forth here to pray." Prayer time Is by no means wasted time, to take time to pray Is to save time for work and to multiply strength for work. The authority Jesus exercised in every realm was purchased by prayer. Our lack of It is explained in the words. "Ye have not because ye ask not. Ye ask ana receive not, because ye ask amiss." Fourth Christ (en'lered Crusade Sermon Sunday At First M. E. Church FIREMEN'S MEMORIAL SERVICE SUNDAY NIGHT AT CHRISTIAN CHURCH "Tne Christ of Ihe Loving Heart" will be the fourth message of the Christ Centered Crusade scries, 'Following the Footprints of Jesus,' now being conducted in the First Methodist Episcopal Church, on Sunday morning at 11 o'clock.
