forth In Pa. IxtII and many other

these, "God bo merciful onto us and

the "little faith"' or "no faith" of Is

Ttfe story of the woman of Tyre and
Sldon follows la the regular order of
events, while that of the Roman cen
tnrlon takes us back to a time Just
after the choosing of Ufa twelve apos
tles. Both events are recorded by
Matthsw; the centurion also in Lake
vll and the gentile woman in Mark In
the leeson of today. The great words
In each lesson are. to my "o wo
man. great la thy faith, be it unto thee
even as thou wilt." and -Verily I say
unto you. I hare not found so great
faith, no, not in Israel. ? ? ? Go thy
way. and as thou hast bettered, so be
It dona unto thee- (Matt xv, 28: vUl
Taking the story of the centurion
first, we note that his servant, who
was dear unto him, was sick unto
death, and the messengers who came
to Jesus on his behalf spoke of the
centurion's love for the nation and how
he had built them a synagogue; bet
. the centurion himself said, either per
sonally or by his messengers, that he
was not worthy to have the Lord ,Te
sns come under his root, but that If
He would only speak the word his
servant would be hpaled. When tb?
messengers returned to the centurion's
bouse they found the servant whole
that had been sick, ne had been hea'
ed In the same hour that Jesus had
said. "As thou hast believed, so be it
done unto thee."
As; Jesus joqa mended the centurion's
faith He said to the people that manr
would come from all parts and share
the kingdom with Abraham. Isaac and
Jacob, while many- who supposed rl'e*
were sure of It would And tfcems-. It s
cast Into outer darkness. How ess^n
tlal it Is that we become In God's w?;
His children and know that our names *"
are written In heaven (Luke x, 20; Rev
15; xxl. 8), for many who profess
to be His will have to hear Trim say.
"I never knew you. depart from Me':
iMatt. Til, 21-23). Mark the poverty
of spirit of the centurion, no self con
celt or consciousness of the importance
of his position, but evidently from his
heart. "Lord. I am not worthy." Some
thing of the spirit of him of Luke xv'.U
13, 14. who went to his house Justified
There Is only one who is truly worthy |
and when we take our right place be- '
fore Him He is ready to honor all the i
fa|Uj we place In Him.
As to the other incident 1 hare often
thought that Jesus went away off there I
to be refreshed by that woman's grenr I
faith, for knowing all things He kne-n
all about her and her trouble, and the
way she would come to Him and clinv
to Him and take no denial. Nothing
pleases Him like faith, and wilhou*
faith it Is Impossible to please Him
it is written that the centurion's serv
'ant was dear unto him, but here It 1*
a mother pleading for her own diugb J
ter who must have been dear to her
and specially dear because of her nf
diction, for the sick one in a home gen
erally has the sympathy of alL As we '
think of those who are dear to us do
We consider the words of our Father !n
heaven concerning His only begotten
Son. "This Is My beloved Bon In whont
3 am well pleased?" (John lit. JO.
Matt- 111, 17; xvli. 6). Let us also la;,
to heart that we -do not honor the Fa
ther unless we honor the Bon; and that
since God spared not His own Son He
will with Him also freely give us all
things (John v, 23; Rom. vll I, 82).
Probably this distressed mother did
not know these great truths, but she
knew that she had a greatly afflicted
daughter, she had heard of this won
derful teacher who could heal all dis
eases and cast out demons and had no
?doubt longed to reach Him. but He was
too far away, and so her case seemed
hopeless But now He had come near
to her, the blessing was within her
reach, and as soon as possible she Is
at His feet beseeching Him for her
daughter. To get the complete recorc.
we must put the accounts In Matthew
and Mark side by side. To her first
appeal Jesus answered her not a word.
The disciples besought Him to send
her away. He then said that He was
sent only to the lost sheep of the
boose of Israel. She first cried unto
Him ss the Son of David, now she
?'says, "Lord, help me." To this He re
plied. "It Is not meet to take the chil
dren's bread and cost It unto the dogs."
Then cime her conquering appeal,

table sat Of the children's orambe."
Willing to own herself a gentile dog
pleading for a crumb, she gets all she
cams tor. "Far this seytng go thy
way; the derll Is gone out of thy daugh
