Lesson on the above topic for

"THE BASIS of Courage for the
Future" is the subject of our lesson
today Do we ever think of Jesus
needing courage even as you and
I to go on with His earthly life ?
He knew that two months from
ihe time He was talking with His
disciples in Caesarea Philippi He
ivould be crucified, and the cer
eal knowledge that He would
rise from the dead did not miti
gate the knowledge that He would
die as a human being a very pain
ful death. We can picture Him
with the men whom He knew best,
and those with one exception,
Judas Lscarlot who loved Him
Caesarea Philippi was far to the
north, at the foot of the Lebanon
mountains, In Palestine, in a place
noted for Its adolatrous worship,
and n.urt be distinguished from
Caesarta whioh was on the Medl
terrantan coast. Here Jesus and
His disciples talked together.
J.sus had boa preaching, per
forming rii!;v-les and living with
the people cf Palestine for over
t vo years; what did they think of
H!.n? Whom did they think He
Jesus put the question to His
disciples, and they answered,
"Some say John the Baptist;
some, Elijah; and others Jeremiah
t: one of the prophets."
Asks His Disciples
Then He said, "But whom say
ye that I am?" And Peter, always
the spokesman for the twelve, an
swered, 'Thou art the Christ, the
Son of the Living Ood."
For the first time In the Scrip
ture record, Jesus called an Indi
vidual blessed. "Blessed art thou,
Simon Bar-jonah; for flash, and
blood bath not revealed it unto
thea, but My Father which la in
"And I say also unto thee. Thai
thou art Peter, and upon this rock
I will build My ohureh; and the
gates of Hades shall not prevail
against It. .
"And I witt give thee the keya'
of the kingdom of heaven, and
whatsoever thou shalt loose on
earth shall be loosed in heaven."
One commentator states chat It
would almost seem as If Jesus had
"asked the question with some
anxiety, as If Peter's immediate
and decisive reply was a Joy that
contained m It something of relief..
The Lord emphatically declared
that this confession of faith in His
Messiahshlp is not the outcome of
human Instruction, but must be a
revelation from God Himself."
Faith Conies First
The first great lesson of cour
age for the future is faith. Faith
In God the Father and His Son
whose guidance we must seek in
the grave solutions of peace that
face the world after all the un
speakable cruelty and suffering
After nearly two thousand years,
the church of which Christ speaks
la still giving people hope and
courage and providing inspiration
for them to try to live the Christ
like life. Hades has not indeed
prevailed against It.
While we confidently expect
peace and happiness to come to
the Christian world, we must re
solve to do our part. As Peter
writes in his second epistle,
"Wherefore beloved, seeing that
ye look for such things, be dili
gent that ye may be found of Him
In peace, without spot, and blame
less." He concludes the epistle with
the words: "But grow in grace,
and In the knowledge of our Lord .
and Saviour Jesus Christ."
That Is the point of our lesson
on courage for the future, to be
lieve, to try In every possible way
to follow the Master In our every
action. Thus we cannot despair
These are the bases of courage
for the future.
