No one should ever speak conlcmplu
oinly of tho Jews as a nation. They aro
a pcoplo whom God has honored through
tho passing centuries.
It wns tho purpose of God that tho
Jews, being fitted by n Unowlcdgo of tho
Scriptures nnd by religious training,
should give the message of salvation to
the world. Paul and Barnabas preached
Hi st to tho Jews, not because of a
national pride, being Jews themselves,
nor because it was a special privilege to
preach to their own people, but they
were canning out the purposes of God.
But the door of tho Jowlsh heart was
closed to the truth, and tho Master and
His messago of salvation were rcjoctod.
Then said the disciples, "Lo, wo turn to
tho Gentiles," and "My word shall not
leturn unto me void," salth tho Loid.
Paul preached flrst to the Jews, say
ing, "To vou is the word of this salva
He argued from prophecy and from
history that God had delivered and
blessed His covenanted people; that Ho
had promised to them and through them
the Messiah; that Jesus Christ was the
promised Messiah, and because they
knew Him not they hnd rejected Him
and put tho Son of God to death, even
the death of tho cross, and that God had
lalsed Him fiom the dead. "Ho came
to His own and His own received Him
Paul's gceat argument for salvation is
based upon tho crucifixion and resur
icction of Jesus Christ, and ho picsents
tho Rospel of Jesus to the "Whosoever
Will" accept It; to the Jews first, and
through them to tho world.
No puio and unselllsh love Is ever lost.
Gi eater love hath no man known than
the love of God for this poor lost world,
which love found expression In the re
demption by Jesus Clulst. Such love
could not be in vain. Those who could
not appreciate, but despised and rejected
it, "Judged them unworthy," and were
filled with hatred for the Messenger and
the message, while thoso who gladly
welcomed and received the truth wcie
filled with holy Joy.
The unwillingness to receive Jesus
Christ ns tho Messiah and "Tho Light of
tho World," makes all who reject Him
unworthy of the lovo of God (Jno.ill:l),
nnd unworthy of eternal llfo through
Tho licrht of God's precious truth
shines for all who will icceivo It. Do
not close they heart ngninst the truth,
and so leject the Saviour and His love.
