John 13, 1   1 comment

John 13

Above:  Part of the Original Text

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Despite all their inconsistencies, Jesus “loved them unto the end.”  Men glory in His love.  Notice some of its characteristics.

I.

Its intensity–“moved with compassion.”  His heart was deeply stirred–boundless love.

II.

Its continuousness.  It never wore off.  He never got used to physical sufferings, never forgot man’s spiritual needs.  He was constantly relieving both.

III.

Its personalness.  No one was ever lost in the crowd.  He saw and loved each one.  How minute is his care for us.  Not one is overlooked.

IV.  

It was constructive.  It built up character, developed the powers of believers to a high degree.  He sees the possibilities in each one of us and seeks to expand and develop them.  This opens up a great future for us.

V.

We should strive to be like Him, to love men like He did and seek to help them to be their best selves, to think of men in terms of their possibilities under grace.  This will also enrich and sweeten their lives.

EDITOR’S COMMENT:

I have been adding some of my great-grandfather’s sermon outlines today.  With this post I conclude this round of that activity.  Quite on purpose I end today’s blogging session on a high note.  Although I argue with the man in my brain much of the time that I type his sermon outlines and even say so on occasion, I agree with him more often than not.  And I have a high regard for the Holy Eucharist.  So I make one comment about the following sermon outline:

I agree wholeheartedly.

That is why I partake of sacrament at least once–usually twice–a week.

Jno. 13, 6-9

In partaking of this sacramental fest we should be solemnly affected:

1.  With a sense of our unworthiness–our need of his pardoning and saving grace.  That he died for us emphasizes this.

2.  With a deep sense of reverence and humility.  We owe all to him and should be very grateful for his mercy.

3.  [We] should remember his death for us, because of our great need and because of his boundless love.  We should trust him fully.

4.  We should love one another and pray for one another.

Luke 23, 33-38

1.  Prophecy foretold the event, as did Jesus.  He laid down his life.  “No man taketh it from me.”  It was part of the Divine plan.

2.  Jesus chose the time of his death.  “Mine hour is not yet come” is used frequently.  At last he said, “the hour is come” (Jno. 17, 1).  “Go tell that fox”–Luke 13, 32.  “Not at the feast”–Matt. 26, 5.  “What thou doest do quickly”–Jno. 13, 27.  Jesus thrust it forward ere they were ready.

3.  The charge was blasphemy, making himself equal with God–his soul.  He either is, or else an imposter and false swearer.  To profess admiration for the man and deny his Divinity is to betray him with a kiss.

4.  They crucify him between two thieves at 9 o’clock.  Darkness from 12 to 3 o’clock.  The crowd mock him.

5.  His concern for others–prays for his slayers, provides a home for his mother, answers the penitent cries to the Father, declares it is finished & commends his  spirit to the Father & yields up his spirit.  The earthquake bellows & the tombs open.

6.  Why all this suffering?  He did no wrong, as said Herod once & Pilate six times.  It was for me & the whole world.  Shall I not love him and live only for Him?

Brotherly Love Proof of Our Discipleship   4 comments

EDITOR’S COMMENT:

The Revised Version of 1881, which many have long since forgotten, was part of my great-grandfather’s preaching library.

I, being both a history nerd and one fascinated by the sequence of English Bible translations, know about such things readily.

Jno. 13, 35

1.  Jesus, “having loved his own,…loved them unto the end,” or uttermost (Ch. 13, 1).  So great was his love that he gave himself for them.  Love bound his heart to them and them to him.

2.  “His own” are like him, love him and each other as he loved him.  Discipleship is a question not of external relation but of similarity of character.  No matter what else we have or do, if we have not love we are nothing.  “When he shall be made manifest we shall be like him.”

(a)  “If a man say, I love God and hateth his brother, he is a liar” (1 Jno. 4, 20).  Love to God and man is one and the same thing and same act.

(b)  “We know we have passed out of death unto life because we love the brethren.”  His children love each other and what He loves.  See also Phils. 2, 3 & 2 Thes. 1, 3 (Revised Version).

3.  By this shall men know we are His disciples, seeing we have His Spirit and live a life above the power of this world.  How beautiful is this tie that binds our hearts in Christian love.  This is the “old commandment” he gives us which is ever new.  “Let us not love in word, neither with the tongue; but in deed and truth.”  Then to wash one another’s feet will be easy for us and a joy.
