[ 00'' 0' ''0~" I---- [ Lesson for January .... 18, 1959 ! THERE is a religion which ~p~- ~cializes in destroying desire. If you wish to be saved, they will tell you, you must stop wishing for anything, even to be saved. You must go farther than that, you must get rid of the wish to get rid of all wishes. The happy man is he in whom all desire is dead. Jesus never indulged in such talk. He had no hard words for ambitious men. Of course it made a different story, when men were ambitious for the wrong reasons or for the wrong things. But am- bition as such, he never condemned. Dr. Foreman Two of his nearest friends told him one day, not too privately either, that they wanted to sit at his right hand and his left when at ]~tL he should be King. That was another way of sayin~ they wanted to share his power and his greatness. The other disciples were disgusted and angry; but not Jesus. All he said was, in effect: Grestness has price; are you prepmred to pay it The Towel The price was a cup that must be drunk; a baptism to be undergone. It is quite plain that these are fig- ures of speech, as Jesus tWed them to those ambitious brothers $~m&s and John. For Je~ms.was ne~e~r ~p- tized after that; and all* ~ c~l~S from which he drank were 'or~ Cups such as all poor families used. This price-of-greatness Jesus him- self illustrated by what he, great- est among the great, was ~d did. At the last supper, it was remem- bered after~arcls what Jesus hSd done besides presiding at the meal. He knew he had come from God, knew he was going again to God, and that the Father had given all things into his hands. Surely these words spell greatness beyond com- parison. Yet knowing his greatness, "he took a towel . . ." (The story is in John 13.) The cost of great- ness is to become a servant. The mark of greatness i~ not power- over, but service-to. .The Teeohlng Well, you might say, that towel incident was something special Jesus sat among those men as theiff acknowledged Master; if for a few moments he took the part of a stave, a personal valet, he soon enough put on the teacher's gown agaln. Is there some way of serv- ing others where we are, as we are--is there any way in which a teacher, for instance, can be "ser- vant of all" without leaving the classroom or putting on an apron ? Again Jesus shows US the way. All through his public life he was a teacher. What he had to say was more than personal opinion, it was a message from God. Yet Jesus was always humbly at the disposal of My Miss Margaret Houser Deferred From Last Week Mrs. Carl Hill, cafeteria worker gave the teachers and .pupils their annual Christmas pa~ty Dec. 19th of which ~ey a}l enjoyed.
