Bible Material: John 10 through 11. Devom ~sl Reading: Romans 8:31-39. Lord of Life Lesson for February lO, 1061 i MANY MORE people died in Palestine than Jesus brought back to life. He did not spend all his life, or anywhere near the most of it, in breaking up funerals. We hear actually of only three partic- ular cases where he brought a dead person to life; John tells of only one, the story of Lazarus. Jesus toQk death as a natural end of life. It is the one event to which every one can confidently look forward. Jomm did not set out to make a heliday for death. He did Dr. Foreman not share the modern prejudice against even using such "ugly" words as "die" or "dead." No Tears for Lazarus Why then did the Master weep when Lazarus died ? Some think he wept for himself; but this would be most unlike him. Self-pity would be the last sin you could think of in connection with JeSus. Others think he wept for Lazarus. This could scarcely be true; for he knew he was going to restore the man to his family. Some would agree to this---Jesus did not mourn for a man death could not hold. But could he have been weeping for the opposite reason---that Lazarus had to come back to this world of xtn and sin ? It is more likely that ' tears were not for Lazarus _ all, but for the grieving sisters .ary and Martha. If he wept for Lazarus, it would be the o~e and o~dy funeral that brought him to tears. It is more natural to think of Jesus as sharing the sorrow of the two sisters, as he shared the woes Of the world always. He was Paul nor any other writer in the Bible (except Ecclesiastes) looks at death as man's worst enemy. That place is reserved for sin. The damage that sin can do is worse than any damage de~[th can do. This is not to say that prevention of deatlL or rather postponement of death, which is all that medical science can accomplish, is not worth while. If "Thou shalt not kill" is a divine command, there is another commandment wrapped up, as it were, in that one: Thou shalt do all things possible to pre- serve and prolong life--thine own and the lives Of others. Neverthe- less, though the healing profes- stous owe much to Christianity and have contributed much, the fact remains that no death can be anything but postponed, while sin can actually be prevented. So our Lord spent most of his time not in breaking up funerals but in break- ing the power of evil. It is less im- portant, after all, to keep men from dying than it is to keep them from sinning. Two Kinds of Life Let us turn this thought ereufid and look at it another way. It is important enough to be looked at for a long time. Here is a question: What is the most important thing in the world, to you ? Many per- sons would come up with what seems like the simple answer: My life. That is a true answer--per- haps. It depends on what kind of life you mean; for there are two kinds. One is the life that ends at the moment of death, the life that is tied to yo~nr heart and lungs. The other is the llfe called in the kpostles' Creed the Life Everiast- ng, but better called in the New Testament the Life Eternal There at Bethany Jesus did not prescribe for Lazarus a pill or potion guar- anteed to keep him from dying again. Lazarus would die again, and Jesus knew it. So did his sis- ters. Jesus did not offer them life everlasting; they had it. God has made us human beings so that death is not the end. But the press- ing, even the terrible, question is: What sort of person are you going 'o be, forever and ever? Without he life eternal, the life everlasting xn be an eternity of frustration at )est, torture at worst. Without the life eternal, life everlastlng means only existence shut away from the Lord of Life. Eternal life is that kind of life that makes everlasting life worth the hope of ma~ and the promises of Christ. indeed "acquainted with grief."

GO TO CHURCH Educador swamp into harbor. The Saxons had a word for Spring. It was Leneten, shortened, in time, to Lent. So tl e name Lent was given to that springtime period of 40 fast days from Ash Wednesday until Easter. Lent came to mean a time of penitence. And it is. But it is also a time of preparation, and of promise. For because Lent means Spring, it heralds good things to come. It forecasts the glorious message of Easter. It is the dawn of the most beautiful season of the year. The bare branches of these trees will burst into bud and leaf with the touch of Spring. Our thoughts during Lent, our personal prepara- tions, also will reach fruition when the 40 days are through. Lent is the time for prayer and self-examination. Make this Lenten season really mean so nething by seeking help and guidance at your church services THE CHURCH FOR ALL FOR THE C The Church is the greatest factor on earth 1~ the building of character and good It is a storehouse of spiritual values. strong Church, neither democraq can survive.
