international Un~orra Sunda~ Scho~ Le~or~ Bible MateriaJ: John 1,2. I)e,otlo,.-I M t ew IS:IVY. THE HEADLIN!g above might lead you to think this is a Column about a boy and a girl. If that's what you are looking for, read no further. That's not what this is about. We are talking about something more important than an imaginary girl or boy. This is about life, your life. We may as well come to the point at ~ once. "He who loves his life losesii 'it." This is a quo- tation from Jesus Christ. As if it were not hard enough to under- stand by itself, Jesus adds an Dr. Foreman even harder sentence: "He who hates his life in the world will keep "it for eternal life." Jesus never talked nonsense; but he often said things that made men walk away, asking themselves, What can th'~ mean? This is one of those hard sayings. The Orou Is the Answer Jesus did not explain his riddle in words. He explained it by action Let it never be doubted that Christ was fully normal, apart from sin. "Like his brethren in every re- spect," a New Testament writer says. Now the will-to-live is strong in every man. In some persons of unsound mind there is no will-to- live, only the will-to-die. But Jesus never strikes you (nor any o~e else) as a morbid type, who v:ou~.~ go around hating himself and~h:' il ing life. Jesus had a Joy in livinE this is clear f~'om all we know o~ him. Yet he came at last to s crlsi~ in life where he Ihad a chance to choose to live, perhaps for mary years; but chose to die. He l~ved life; but he would not treasure h!~ life above all things else. He loved life; but it came to the point wl-ere he knew the best tnvestmenL @f h'; life would be to "Isy it dowr." :t,; use his own words). Jesus sometimes said he "had to" [ suffer and die; but what kind of I ! necessity what this? No outside By Miss Margaret Houser force pushed him. True, once he got into the hands of the police, I News~hasu~,~-~--'~-~carce due to the end was foreseen by every one.II the s"--~:--:now and the drifted roads Yet even then Jesus said he could summon angels to his aid. And be- that were almost impossible to fore that, it would have been per- travel. If it hadn't been for the fectly simple not to offend the Pharisees and the scribes. Pilate had never heard of him and would never have heard of him if the chief priests and the rest of them had not brought Jesus before him. Jesus had no quarrel with the Roman Governor; and could have lived to a ripe old age, in retire- ment somewhere. But then what about the rest of us ? What would we think of God ? If Jesus was the divine Word made flesh, if he was God-made-man, and if he had re- fused the cross, then W'e would have known that there is one thing God would not do for man. God would teach man, condemn man, praise or punish man; but God would not die for man. God would not let himself be hurt... But no, Christ chose the Cross. He chose to die, not for himself alone but for every man. The Dying Seed Look into the garden ground after it has been planted. What do you find? To the eye, nothing; just seeds rotting in ~he ground, seeds that will never come out again, seeds falling apart, dying. But look again; every living seed is sending up a green stem that will hold up another plant. To have life, you must first have death. To have victory, you must be ~illing to take scars. It is so with gardens. It is so with life. Jesus' sacrifice is not the only one needed to save the world. Let us suppose for a moment that every Christian in the church were just as selfish, Just as much a Me-Firster, as anybody outside the church. What would th~ church amount to ? Nothing more than another I~ompous club. It would never hav& lasted as long as it has, of course; it would indeed never have existed at all. Go over the roll of history. Some people are called "Great" when nothing about them was great except their crimes. Who are the truly great ? They are, they have always been, those who did not love themselves best. They were those who--in the pinch--whether in one single burst of heroism or through long years, gave themselves for others.

But it is. It has been designed to protect a child from exterior hazards-- and from himself. Religion isn't what we would call "scientific." But it, too, embraces this theory of double protection. The man or woman who worships God faithfully is prepared for the unexpected crises in life. And his mature conscience is ready to cope with temptation. ( This isn't to say that nothing ever goes wrong for the ardent church-goer. But meets each outward or inward challenge with ade- quate spiritual resources |. There are impelling reasons why you need the Church and its un- dergirding strength. And for every one that is evident today, there are others you'll confront tomorrow. CopyHS$I 196l, I(~ter A~v. ,~rvlc~, ~r~,b~r~, Va. THE: CHURCH FOR ALL . . . ALL FOR THE CH;URCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth'for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can surviv~e. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They arc: (1) For his own sake. (2) For h~s children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to so to church regularly and read your Bible daily.
