Jingoism is a tertn applied to
anyone who favors an aggressive
or bcllicose policy in foreign af
fairs, says Pathfinder. In this
sense, it was first used in England,
where "jingo" became a nick
name for any advocate of Lord
Beaconsficld's action in sending a
fleet to Turkish waters to stay
Russia's advance in 1878.
The word was lifted from the
chorus of a music-hall favorite of
that bygone day, which ran as

The diffeience between Weissmul

pole vault and Les Steers at the high
jump ? two high-flying Californians.
Warmerdam discovered that the
only way he could pass 15 feet was
to get his right arm out of the way
in time. Steers discovered that the
only way he could beat 6 feet 10
inches over the lofty cross bar was
to get his left foot out of the way
before it carried away the bar.
"I could get my left hand and left

God is sovereign and has all pow

His works without the help of man,
and on many an occasion He doe3
That fact makes it all the more

I. Appointed to Serve Christ (w.
It is the constant teaching of
Scripture that those called to serve
God are not self-appointed. They
1. Chosen by Him (w. 12, 13). He
chooses whom He will, gives them
the gifts and the grace for ministry
(and both are important!), and pro
vides them a place of service. It is
vitai to the servant of Christ that
he know that he has been chosen
and called of the Lord.
Observe that it was after a night
of prayer that Jesus appointed the
twelve. How many churches give
that much prayer to the choosing
of its leaders? Do we not need it
far more than did our Lord?
2. Called from Many Walks of
Life (w. 14-16). The apostles were
men of widely differing gifts, tem
peraments, and personal character
istics. Some had unusual ability,
others apparently were of ordinary
qualifications. They were of many
occupations, fishermen, a tax gath
erer, etc.; but not one was by pro
fession a preacher or priest.
Were men to choose iui sucii of
fices they would look within the nar
row limits of a few learned profes
sions, with certain nationalities pre
ferred, and with position in life an
important factor. God cuts across
every rnan-made limitation and
calls His workers as He sees fit.
3. Companions in Service (vv. 17
19). At once the twelve received
their introduction to service to the
great multitude diseased, demon
possessed, in spiritual need. It was
Jesus who healed them (and notice
that "he healed them all," v. 19),
but verse 17 tells us that the newly
appointed apostles came and stood
with Him. They had fellowship with
the healing and serving Christ, just
as we may have it in service for
II. Prepared to Live for Christ
1. How to Meet Difficulties (vv.
20-23). Poverty, hunger, weeping,
being hated for Christ's sake, these
! were the things that Jesus knew
i His servants might expect, so He
! prepared them. They were told that
these things need not disturb them,
for there is a kingdom coming;
there will be a time when every
hunger will be satisfied, when weep
ing shall turn to laughter.
Hatred for Christ's sake is de
clared to be the occasion for an
outburst of joy because of the re
ward which awaits in heaven.
Scripture speaks much of rewards,
and we do well to encourage our
selves and other Christians by the
! Meeting difficulties is a matter
' of having mental and spiritual eyes
rightly focused. If we do, we can
see right through them and see that
on the other side there is blessing.
But there are temptations in an
other direction, so He tells them
2. How to Avoid Dangers (vv. 24
26). Jesus is here speaking of those
I who, lacking true spiritual vision,
revel in the satisfaction of worldly
things without a thought of God. The
passage, however, may well be ap
plied to the worker for Christ. Often
he will be tempted to covet the
wealth, the prosperity, the pleas
ures, and popularity of those round
The question which comes to him
is. Why should I and my family not
share these pleasant things? There
in lies a temptation to become
worldly-minded, centered in the tem
poralities of life. Let him learn that
money in itself cannot bring last
ing joy; that the fullness of this
world is soon exchanged for an eter
nal emptiness; that the shallow
laughter of this world's fun rapidly
gives way to weeping.

Do Not Go WITH ADVERTISING
Advertising and high prices do not go together at all.
They are extremely incompatible to each other. It is
only the product which is unadvertised, which
has no established market, that costs more than vou
can afford to pay.
Whenever you go into a store and buy an item of ad
vertised merchandise, it doesn't make any difference
what, you are getting more for your money ? more in
quality and service? than you would get if you spent the
same amount for something which was not advertised.
