M.; sermon, "Vic (the Soldett (Text .Mark 2:16--"I cnmc not to call the righteous, but slnnerfc." By DR. ALVIN E. BELL (The International Uniform Lesson on the above topic lor Fab. 6 la Mark 2:13-22, the Golden Text being- Mark 2:16, Â·1 came not to call the righteous, but sinners.") IMMEDIATELY: preceding this lesson an Incident occurred which left a profound Impression upon the people concerning our Lord, and regarding which Mark says, "They were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, we never saw It on. this fashion." The Originality of JeÂ»u* Jesus Va3 continually cutting across established customs. He wasted no time with his car to the ground to learn what would be the discreet and politic thing to do to gain favor for his cause. This originality ol Jesus manifests Itself in his selection of Matthew as one of his disciples and apostles. The tact that Matthew was a tax gatherer made him persona non grata to all Jesus' countrymen. They de- splseil no one so much as the hated publican, especially when the gatherer of Rome's taxes was one of their own. people. But In Matthew, whom all his fellows regarded as a renegade Jew, Jesus saw a heart of gold and the possibility ot a great saint. So Jesus called Matthew from the scat or custom, saying, "Follow me." And he arose and followed him. Furthermore, when Matthew gave a farewell dinner for his former associates In the Roman customs service, Jesus even dared to attend the banquet, and thus further offend the sense of propriety of the scribes and Pharisees, who demanded: "How Is it that he eateth and drinkcth with publicans and sinners?" When Jesus heard the criticism, he stood his ground, and justified his action, saying, "They that arc whole have no need of a physician, but they that are sick: I came not to Â«J1 the righteous. but sinners." Jesus refused .to kick any man because he was down. He had come to lift men up, and was unashamed to "rake the gutter for his saints", that he might lift them to the stars. He held In contempt all race and class prejudice that sought to ostracize from religious fellowship those whom any smug set felt might seem out of place in their society. Long-Faced Religion Because Jesus did not go about with a long face and sanctimonious mien, his enemies charged him with a lack of piety. While they were fasting he was feasting. Their own religion hurt them while Jesus and his disciples seemed to enjoy theirs! "And they come and say unto him, why do John's disciples and and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?" His answer, in effect, was that folk should not fast unless they felt like fasting, and even then they should not make a fuss and ado about It. If there were not an Inner sadness there should be not outward sham or show of It. With John the Baptist In prison his disciples might well feel sad and show It In fasting. But Jesus' presence with his disciple* was the occasion of such joy that fasting would have been an Incongruity. There would bo time for that later under the cross, but not now while he was with them. "As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast." Normal religion to joyous. . Fatchwojk Religion Jesus had not come to remodel or patch a wornout rcllgloi of empty and meaningless forms. "No man sowcth a piece of undressed cloth on an old garncnt: else that which should ail it up takcth from ft, and a worse rent is made." A blood transfusion will do a corpse no good. Jesus came to give us life from the dead. First Meihpdisis At Sixth Sunday In Christ Crusade "The Christ of Omnipotent Power" will be the subject for the sixth Sunday of the three-month crusade "Following the Footprints of Jesus" at the First Methodist Episcopal Church nt 11 o'clock tomorrow morning.

There arc too many events to cover in one brief sermon, but we shall take time to consider some ol them. This is the sixth Sunday morning, and I think we all agree that the farther we go on this pilgrimage of 'Following the Footprints ol Jesus,' the more interesting we find the studies."
