Sunday School Lesson
HOPE IN THE MIDST OF DESPAIR
After the days of privacy were over, Christ appeared on a
level spot, overlooking the beautiful Sea of Galilee, not far
from Capernaum. Many people of all sorts were attracted
to Him ; some by His words and others by His works. Know
ing that they were in search of happiness, Christ proceeded
to inform them that true happiness is based on and grows
out of a right relationship with God and others. He told His
followers the kind of people He wanted them to be and the
kind of lives He wanted them to live. True happiness
depends on an inward condition rather than on outward cir
cumstances or material possessions.
In this lesson our Lord directed the attention of His
listeners and readers to the following:
' Healing. (Verses 17-19). In the multitude who entered the
presence of Christ were those who were afflicted with
various diseases and those who were possessed of demons.
Out of His heart of great compassionate love Christ healed
those who needed it. Through the centuries our Lord has
kept on healing the bodies, minds, and souls of people who
have needed such.
Poverty.1 (Verse 20). The first characteristic of a citizen
of Christ's kingdom is that he is conscious of his spiritual
poverty. He recognizes that he does not have any spiritual
resources of his own, and, for that reason, wholly relies
upon God. He does not boast of his talents or attainments,
because he knows that he does not have anything which he
has not received. Christ does not pronounce a blessing upon
a conceited, proud and self-sufficient person, but upon the
one who is conscious of his own insufficiency, and his in
ability to cope with life, and who fully trusts in God in
Whom ample strength and help are found. "Oh, the hap
piness of the man who has realized his own utter
helplessness, and who has put his whole trust in God."
Hunger. (Verse 21a). If a man is hungry, nothing except
food will satisfy him. Uncomfortable and discontented, he
looks to his environment for the satisfaction of his hunger.
. One who hungers after righteousness is aware that he lacks
it and cannot be happy without it. Those who hunger after
righteousness "shall be filled," meaning their hunger shall
be satisfied completely. Unfortunately, only a com
paratively few hunger for righteousness. May God fill our
hearts with a yearning for righteousness such as we have
Grief. (Verse 21b). There is no need to attempt to prove
the reality of pain, sorrow, and grief. These things have
visited our families, and we have experienced them in our
lives. This verse refers to that unpleasant and severe ex
perience of grief which is too great for concealment, and is
revealed by sobbing aloud. Grief is real to the saved and
unsaved, but the Christian is "calm in grief because rich in
Persecution. (Verses 22-26). Christ warned His followers
to expect and be ready for trouble, hatred, and persecution.
In persecuting those who are faithful to the Lord today, the
v world employs brutal jest, oiting sarcasm, and cruel
- sneers. It is impossible to live for Christ without being sub
jected to social obstracism, sneers, and scorn ; but persecu
tion for the sake of Christ and His righteousness is not
something to whine about. A genuine Christian provokes
opposition because his godly life is a constant rebuke to the
selfishness and sin of others, and because what he is, says
and does serves as a rebuke to their sinful way of life.
Those who stand up for Christ will be rewarded for doing
