DENTOH JOURNAL Page. 6 MELVIN ft JOHNSON, Inc., Publishers Saturday Morning, October 8, 1938 ^IMPROVED UNIFORM INTERNATIONAL S UNDAY I CHOOL L. ess on By HAROLD L. LUNDQUIST, D. D. Dean of The Mopdy Bible Institute of Chlcaco. © Western Newspaper Union. Lesson for October 9 SPIRITUAL WORSHIP LESSON TEXT--Exodus 20:4-6; 32:1-8; John 4:19-24. GOLDEN TEXT--Cod la a Spirit: nnd Ihey that worship him must worship him In spirit and in truth.--John 4:24. "The First Commandment bids us " to worship God exclusively; the Second bids us to worship Him spiritually. The First Commandment forbids us to worship false gods; the Second forbids us to worship the true God under false forms" (Farrar). Israel had lived among the Egyptians, a people known for their ' worship of images, and was about to enter into Canaan where there were many false gods. The Lord was therefore careful not only to forbid the worship of other gods, but also to forbid the making of images of any kind, whether they represented the many gods of heathendom, or were attempts to symbolize the true God. In studying this lesson we need to exercise care lest we miss the" point by talking only of the gods of wood and stone which the heathen worship, and fail to apply the truth to any improper use of images which may prevail in our land and in the present day. Let us lay aside any preconceived notions and face the facts in the light of God's Word. I, True Worship Required (Exod. 20:4-6). This commandment expressly for- 1 bids idolatry in any form. The injunction is twofold. (1) Men are · forbidden to make any material likeness which to them represents a being to be worshiped. It matters not whether it be an image of what men believe God to be like, or the image of an angelic being, a heavenly body, in fact "anything that is in the heaven above," or on the earth--such as a man or animal; or under the water--such as a fish. (2) It. such objects have been made either by ourselves or others we may not bow down to them, nor render any service to them. Let us all examine our religious ceremonies and practices in the light of God's commandment. Observe that obedience to this command brings rich blessing to "thousands" (v. 6), whereas disobedience is a curse not only to the man who disobeys, but also to his descendants. Spiritual blight so often runs through whole families, while spiritual life just as often blesses those who follow us. Blessed is the man wlio gives his children and his children's children a true spiritual heritage, but woe be unto that man who passes on the darkness and spiritual death of unbelief to his children! n. False Worship Established (Exod. 32:1-8). It comes to us as a real shock that a people so highly privileged, , 'so well-instructed and so ably led 'as Israel should turn to idolatry. The story reveals the depravity of the human heart. Their excuse that Moses was gone was only an excuse without foundation. They did what their hearts wanted to do, and they used his absence to put forward their wicked desires. Let us be careful lest we be misled or indeed, mislead ourselves into creating a God after the concept of our own heart and mind. We, like Israel, may be tempted to "make us gods" to which we will bow down and worship. It may not be out of place at this point to warn against a folly which seems to have laid hold of the church, that of almost ' deifying our Christian leaders. A man who is called to speak for God is a highly privileged man, worthy of our support and our respect. But let us remember that he is only a servant, an instrument in God's hand, and let 'us never be guilty of worshiping and serving "the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever" (Rom. 1:25). HI. True Worship Defined (John 4:19-24). One would suppose that a truth so vital and fundamental as that stated in these verses would long since have completely saturated the life of the church as well as of the individual believer. "God is a Spirit, and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." Even in this year of our Lord 1938, countless men and women still believe that worship has something to do with place (w. 20, 21) or race (v. 22) or some other external device 'or formula. What a pity that this should be true when the gracious and delightful way to worship is through personal spiritual com- 'munion between God and man. Deadening formalism is not our only enemy. There is the powerless preachment of modernism--and in all honesty must we not admit that even some so-called fundamentalism, has in many respecta lost the . true spirit of the faith for which it rightly contends. We who cherish the truth of God's Word will shun modern liberalism. We may not be tempted to obscure the worship of God by formalism. But we may be in danger of a dead orthodoxy, being as someone said "orthodox about everything except I Corinthians 13"--or failing to worship God in spirit and in truth and not living out that spirit in loving service to our brethren.
