wicked., We are for righteous, good

And we know we must fight sin in

fact is that man is a sinful creature.
We need deliverance from the pow

Christ, The Peerless Speaker
BV REV. C. HERMAN TRUEBLOOD
TEXTS "Never man spake Uke this man. John 1:46.
History reveals the records of many great and mighty speakers.
Winston Churchill is probably the greatest speaker of our generation.
Demonsthenes was rated the most famous orator of ancient Greece.
Patriarchs, prophets, kings, and teachers of Bible time have left their
messages upon the pages of history. However, the words of Jesus stand
out, and above, the utterances of all others. Men of exalted position, and
'recognized wisdom, have spoken since Him; but none like Him. Jesus
spake as never man spake:
1. IN REGARD TO AUTHORITY. "He taught as one having authority."
Matt. 7:29. "For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to
the Sonto have life in himself; & hath given authority to execute judge
ment also, because he is the Son ot man." John 5:26-27. "And Jesus came &
spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in
earth." Matt. 28:18. Jesus represented the Triune God on earth; He brought
heaven's message to mankind, he spoke with unquestioned divine authori
ty. 2. IN REGARD TO TRUTH.' The unanswerable as to the divinity of
Christ Is two-fold; first, His spotless life - Said Pilate: "I find no fault in
this man." Luke 23:4. Second, In His words. The words of Jesus were as
perfect as His character. Perhaps it would be better to say, because He
was perfect in character, His words were necessarily without error. "I
am the way, the truth, and the life." John 14:6. "To this end was I born,
and for this cause came I unto the world, that I should bear witness unto
truths Everyone that is of truth heareth my voice." John 13 37.
3. IN REGARD TO SIMPLICITY. Paradoxically, Jesus spoke more
profoundly, and at the . same time with more simplicity than any other
personality of the ages. His subject matter dealt with, and gave the
correct answers, to the deepest questions of the human heart, for time
and eternity. However, his words were clothed In language that even a
child could understand. The multitudes clung to his words and were
charmed and inspired because they understood His mesage. To the
simple and unlearned, "Never man spake like this man." Yes, "The
common people heard him gladly." Mark 12:37.
4. IN REGARD TO HOPE. All the words, of all the speakers, of all
time combined have not been able to bring as much cheer, inspiration,
and solid hope to the heart of humanity as have the simple words of
Christ, The Peerless Speaker. To troubled hearts, He says: "Let not your
heart be troubled, ye believe ip God, believe also in me." John 14:1. To
the bereaved, He says: "I am the resurrction, and the life; he that be
lieveth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." John 11:25. To
those burdened by the cares of life, He says: "Come unto me, all ye that
labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matt. 11:28.
I heard the voice of Jesus say, "I am this dark world's Light;
Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise, and all thy day be bright.' '

Serlptaro: John ll: 1-64. ' "J
LesMB for Mrch 7, 1954. ;
KING EYOKAKOLl of Lukoleta
in Afrhfa changed his name
every day for twenty-four years.
He thought this would keep the '
angel of death from finding him.
But death knew his namf, knew :
his last name, which was all that
mattered Death knows every one's -name,
and will call it . The one
prediction . that Is
certain to - come
true, and the only
one, is this: You
will dlef Death
rides every . high
way; he rides too ' ;
on every country
road and back-l
woods 'trail,: he
rides the seven -
seas. Wherever Dr.'Poreman
your road may" take :you, at the
last you will come face to face with
death. It is only an illusion to think.
you can ride away from death, ?
You are always coming nearer.
You will face it, no question Of
that. The question is, How will you
face it? x
The Christian looks for his an- ,
swer to Jesus himself. He too
faced death, both of his friends
and of himself: We call him,
and rightly "Lord of Life," "I am
the Resurrection and the Life," -he
said. But the blaze of light in
which his spirit moved did not
blind him to the dark fact of
death. He faced death, first of all
with frankness. He did not try to
avoid mentioning it. He said to
his friends quite simply, "Lazarus
is dead." It would be tunny, if if
were not so pathetic, to see how
many ways people find of avoid
ing saying "He is dead." He is
deceased, or demised, or passed
away, or gone on, anything but
dead. At funerals the corpse is
rigged up to look as lifelike as
possible. At the grave everything
is done to keep it from looking
like a grave. Death is a subject
dodged in polite conversation. But
why not face it? Jesus certainly '
believed in immortality, more
firmly than we do indeed; but still
he was frank about death. j
Jesus' tears were shed on only
one recorded occasion, when Laza
rus died. 'Could he have been
weeping for Lazarus? That Is
hardly possible. If he believed half
what we believe about immor-
tality, he could not have wept for
a man who had gone beyond these
shadows to the light of God's
presence. Or if he did not believe
in immortality (let us suppose
just for a moment that he did
not), then why should he weep
for a man who was within the
hour to be restored to full life
again? The one explanation that
accounts for Jesus' tears on that
day is to see them as tears of
sympathy. The hearts ot Mary and
Martha were torn, and his own
was torn in sympathy. Perhaps it
was not altogether because they
were for a time lonely and bereft.
Jesus could see something be
neath their loneliness, he could
see that they did not understand
death itself. To their minds Laza
rus had as good as ceased to exist.
He would be "raised up" at some
future day; but on that day, four
days after his death what had be
come of him? All they could see
was the black shadow into which .
their brother had disappeared. It
was for their hopelessness, their
misunderstanding, as much as for
their sorrow, that Jesus wept.
People who have had little ex
perience In such things sometimes
wonder what to ' say when , they
visit a house of sorrow. If only
we could bring back the dead to
life, as Jesus did! If only we could
break into moving poetry such as
might have come from a Tennyson
or a Dantel If only we could Say
some magic thing that would dia-
solve death in ashes and make life
bloom again! instead we are shy
and blundering and. we are afraid
we say the wrong thing in spite ,
ot ourselves. Two thing need to v
be remembered at ' such times.
One is that what -we say is far
less important than our attitude.
If we ourselves have an attitude
of fear, of doubt, of hopelessness,
anything hopeful we say Is belied
by our evident despair. But if in
ourselves there is a strong faith,
this will make the simplest words
glow-with hope. . '
- The other thing is' recall that .
Jesus reminded Martha and Mary-'
of himself. "I am the Resurrection
and the Life." When we think of
Jesus we think ot Life so all his
friend have . felt How -can , we 1
help it? .So in the presence, of
sorrow the best . word we can say
1 some word that points to Jesus.
BUt 'of course the .better time to
say that word is before sorrow
