Matt. 20, 28

I.

Jesus was conscious that the world needed to give.  It could add nothing to him, but he could greatly enrich the life of the world.  In him dwelt all the fulness of the Godhead bodily the riches of Christ are unsearchable.

II.

Hence he “came to minister”–to bestow upon men what they most needed–the knowledge of God, his nearness and love, his grace, his saving power, the most exalted view of life and destiny, to guide us unto the paths of wisdom and peace.  In him is the solution of the questions before us.

III.

This is the true mission of the church–to render needed service unto men.  What can we the church be worth to others?  If they need help of any kind, especially spiritual assistance, the church should strive to render it.

IV.

Hence each individual should strive thus to serve.  “As much as in me is.”  How help them?

Be Christ-like in all things in prayerful effort, as opportunity affords.

Then “Well done” at last.
