Object: A piece of paper 2 x 8 inches, on which is printed the word “ Behold” . Attach a flap 1 x 2 inches to the top of this paper, so that when it is folded down it will cover the letter “ h,” and on this flap print a capital “ B.” Lesson: I hold in my hand a very in teresting paper this morning, boys and girls. Will someone tell me what is writ ten on it? That’s right, George, the word is “ Be hold,” and it is a very unusual word— one which we do not often use today. It means to gaze on with surprise, and whenever it is used there is always an element of suspense involved. The word is used in our lesson today. Israel was

Objects: A picture of Christ or a red cross, a quart fruit jar, in which is placed an imitation cigarette, an imita tion playing card, a flask-shaped bottle filled with vinegar, an imitation theater ticket, and a black paper heart on which are written the words, “ Hatred,” “ Ly ing,” “ Stealing,” and “ Unbelief.” Lesson: What is wrong with this jar? “ It has a lot of bad things in it.” You are right, Bill, and this jar is so much like some people that we might call it Jim Jar. The greatest need that any boy or girl has is to know Christ and have Him abiding within. Here is a picture of Christ. Can I put it in the jar along with these other things? “ Oh, no; it would not look right to have the picture of Christ in the jar as long as those other things were there.” You are right. We must get rid of these other things. This same truth is stated a little differently in Mark 1:15: “ Repent ye, and believe the gospel.” These words, “ repent ye,” mean “change your minds” about sin. We must turn from sin and turn to Christ. But Jim Jar is not able to cleanse his own life in order to make room for Christ. Jim has to receive Christ as his Saviour, and allow Christ to cleanse away these evil things. Suppose just the bottle of vinegar, representing whisky, and the imitation cigarette were taken out, and the other things remain in the jar. The picture of Christ would still lobk out of place with a heart of hatred, lying, stealing, and unbelief, to say nothing of a show ticket and cards. When they are all taken out, it seems right for Christ’s picture to be inside the jar. People who have repented and received Christ as their Saviour often find the problem of certain sins in their lives as Christians. But that is not God’s best plan for them, for the Lord Jesus Christ is able to keep the Christian’s heart clean. In Jeremiah 35 we are told that the Rechabites did not drink the wine be cause of their father, Jonadab. How much more should we be constrained not to drink because of the love of Christ.

in trouble. They were threatened by enemies on every hand. In the face of these difficulties they were tempted to trust in their own wisdom and strength, instead of that which the Lord would give. In Isaiah 7 we see clearly the con trast between Ahaz who was afraid when trouble came, and Isaiah, who trusted in God. In Isaiah 12:2 we read “ Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.” Isaiah was saying when trouble came and he did not know what to do, he would trust in the Lord. In Jeremiah 32:27 we read, “ Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?” When we as Christians grasp hold of the fact that nothing is too hard for the Lord then we will “ Be Bold” in the face of trouble. (Fold the B down to spell “ Bold.” ) God would not have us filled with fear but confident, with Him as our helper. When the three children of Israel were in the fiery furnace there was one with them like unto the Son of God, and they came through victorious. The Lord would have us “ Behold” His might and power, and then “ Be Bold” in the face of all obstacles.
