WORSHIP AND WORK
Memory Selection: "Jeana said
to them. 'My food b) to do the will
of him who sent me, and to ac
complish hia work'."
Lesson Text: Mark 9:2-50.
Today we consider the Trans
figuration of Jesus and attempt
to relate that high experience to
present-day worship work for
From our Bible study for today
we see that as Jesus approached
the end of his ministry, he called
some of his disciples apart. With
him were his three most intimate
followers: Peter, James, and John.
After they had gone up a moun
tain, Jesus was "transfigured" be
fore the disciples. During this
experience they saw his talking
with Moses and Elijah. We, our
selves, shall never be able to ex
plain scientifically exactly what
happened. It is a mystery, and
such it will remain. However, we
can try to understand the signifi
cation of the event as it is report
ed to us.
What did this experience mean
for the disciples? It confirmed
their earlier confession that Jesus
was the Christ. They saw Jesus
talking with Moses and Elijah,
the representatives of the Law
and the Prophets. And in Jesus'
absence the remaining disciples
had been ministering to the peo
ple; hojw they fared, in a general
sense, we have no concrete idea,
but from one instance related in
the book of Mark, we do know
that in the case of the young boy
"possessed of demonds" they failed
where Jesus later succeeded. Jesus
attributed his success to prayer.
The implications of this incident
God and with
First ftotfat, Mark placed the
high spiritual moment and the
types of exper
ts Jesus' life and
ware here tied
together. Those who saw Jesus s
heavenly Lord also saw him as
servant of nan. This is the nature
of God's revelation.
Christian service is the expres
sion of what we find in worship.
These two are always related, but
the piiority is clear. Jesus indica
ted that worship is the necessary
foundation of Christian concern.
The love of God underlies and is
the source of love of neighbor.
These two worship and service
are not to be separated. Each
implies the other. The first com
mandment is to love God. Inevi
tably the second commandment
follows, "Low thy 'neighbor."
The definition of the moral act
or the good act is given for the
Christian by his faith. We must
do "the will of God." Why should
we love others as God in Christ
has loved usT Only because we
have found the significance of
that love in our own lives. Only
