Choosing Companions in Service ·BRASS TACKS' ON THE SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON By DR. ALVTN E, BELL (The International Uniform Leseon on the above topic for Fob. 20 Is Mark 3:7-19; 31-35. the Golden Text being: Mark 3:38, "For whosoever will do the will of God, the same is my brother.") THE UGLY shadow ol the cross falls clearly across the path of Jesus In the midst of his popular ministry In Galilee as his enemies, the Pharisees, confer with the Hcrodians on "how they might destroy him." From this opposition "Jesus with his disciples withdrew to the aca: and a great multitude from Galilee followed." Jesus' Popularity Great throngs of people gathered about him from every direction, from Judaea and Idumaca on the south, from beyond Jordan to the east, from Galilee to the north, and even from Tyre and Sidon on the Mediterranean sea to the west,."hearing what great things he did," they "came unto him." He even had to take precaution of having his disciples arrange "that a little boat should wait on him because of the crowd, lest they should throng him. For he healed many; Insomuch that as many as had plagues pressed upon him that, they might touch him." Choosing; the Twelve Both this increasing popularity nml the increasing opposition led Jesus to choose from his followers an inner circle whom he designated "apostles", who might carry on his work after his enemies should succeed in crucifying him. Luke tells us that this choice of the twelve was proceeded by an entire night in prayer: "He went out into the mountains to pray; and he continued all night in prayer to God. And when H was day he called his disciples: and he chose from them, twelve, whom he also named apostles." Mark adds the significant note which indicates our Lord's purpose^ in this appointment, viz. "He appointed twelve, that they might be with him, and that he might wnd them forth." This order of events is vitally Important. Jesus communed with God In prayer through the night; then he came to men and made his choice from them. For those he chooses he prescribes the same order. They arc first to "be with him" before he "might send them forth." Communion-must precede conquest; fellowship must beget frultfulncss and experience prepare the way for expression. Christ's order is always "Come and sec," then, "Go and tell." We defeat ourselves when we Bet out upon his work without flrst equipping: ourselves for It by communion with him. His companions in service must first be companions before they can be servants. The Making of the Twelve When Jesus chose the twelve he challenged them to high achievement with the promise, "Follow me and I will make you to become." And he truly njade tliem to become all they did become. He found them unknown, he rrmdc them well known through the ages. He found them poor, he made them enrichers of all subsequent centuries. He found them ordinary m e n ; he made them extraordinary. Kinship With Jesus So zealously did Jesus give himself to his passion to bless humanity through his teaching and healing ministry that his own family said, "He Is beside himself." And they came to restrain his enthusiasm and take him home with them. When Jesus learned of their presence and purpose he said, "Who is my mother and my brethren?" We emphasize the ties of blood by saying. "Blood is thicker than water." But Jesus puts the ties of faith above those of blood, as. pointing to his disciples he said. "Behold my mother and brethren; For whosoever shall do the will of Cod, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." .MRS.
