He will set you the pattern, and then, if you will let Him, He will come into your hearts, and make you able to copy the pattern. Concomitant with this experience was another — that which was connected with the performance of His miracles of mercy. Some ancient historic heirloom, which he dearly prized? It is one of the virtues of Jesus that He transforms into His own image those who look at Him. S. Storrs, D. D.)The Christian runner in relation to his spectatorsHomilist.I. "Well, then, He is our peace."

But the commander may march in the centre, as well as in the van, and even in order of time; He is the Beginner or Leader, inasmuch as He is the first who ever lived a perfect life of faith. Maclaren, D. D.)For the joy that was set before Him.Christ's joy in livingH. Because He is the dearest object of human love.II. A. I do not see how it could ever be." Now what is wanted is, that the mutineers should be subdued — changed into obedient and right-hearted seamen, or put in irons and kept from doing harm.

LET’S RUN! And do you tell me that in the blessed work of teaching and mercy which He was carrying on, Jesus was not a joyful man? If that be a correct exegesis, it sheds new light on unbelief. On Him the Father is looking and saying, "Let thine eye rest where Mine is resting," and can you turn away, as if not satisfied with that which satisfies the Infinite Father?I. Thomas. How that hinders many. Thou art striving with thy whole heart to please God in that point; thou wilt be asking for and using God's grace for this. For this there are many reasons. Such likewise is the prepossession in our own favour, so flattering the glass that self-love holds before us, that this also prevents us from seeing our deformities, and marking the true features and complexion of the mind. It is the holding out till the next glimpse of light comes from above. Our celestial kinsmen minister to us, for they exalt our conception of the nature we possess, of the inheritance to which we are destined.IV. Calthrop, M. In the time of your temptation.2.

Stevenson, M. A.I. "Oh, no!" Are you trying to do your duty? Is my life and yours a race with a goal, and a prize and a judge, and a cloud of witnesses? And as you read the descriptions you might ask, "May we take these as our pattern?" The position of the spectators. He went through all the experiences of babyhood, of early boyhood, of youth, and came into full-orbed manhood without any moral disturbance of which we are aware — without any convulsion that threw Him out of the ordinary experience of a pleasant household, and entered upon His public ministration when He was about twenty-seven years old, dying at about thirty. )Looking to JesusThe painter who undertakes to copy some masterpiece of art, sits down before it, sketches the outline upon his own canvas, reproduces the colouring of the model, adds item by item to his picture, constantly looking upon the original, noting its qualities and the deficiencies of his work, till, by scrupulous care and untiring endeavour, he has produced a facsimile of the original. And it is important for us very often to ask, for what end were we made? A great many men lose the prize by dropping out of the text altogether the clause which we have put in italics. Their number. Bevan. Again, He is "the prince of faith" as leading us into faith. A Christian is never safe, never strong, never true to Christ, unless he is constantly "collaring" ever sinful and selfish passion, and forcing it into unconditional surrender.(T. HE IS OUR ONLY EXAMPLE TO IMITATE. But setting aside all this, which lies upon the very surface of the text, look at the career of the Saviour in another point of view. It is one of the virtues of Jesus that He transforms into His own image those who look at Him. Carr, B.A. He bids the nurse go down and bring a picture which he named, and fasten it on the wall opposite his bed, that he might look upon it when he pleased. The cloud of witnesses. He is our Master, and He appoints our services. Will you confess it and repent of it? Love is the fulfilling of the law, and the most powerful principle of gospel holiness. There is the habit of drinking. It must be a loving look. Christ is here represented, not so much as one who begins faith in men's hearts, but as the Leader of all the long procession of those who live by faith. He has a better model, even Christ; but a harder task, for his canvas is treacherous and his work is life long.Looking unto JesusC. When a man does a heroic action at some cost to himself, he knows that though it costs it counts. the greatness of doing what you ought to do; goodness, the greatness of loyalty amid sorrow. He took it up willingly, and carried it patiently. This thought is also a vast incentive to the culture of power in us, of personal, moral, and intellectual power, for which there must be range in those circles of life which we are to join, if we are the disciples of the Divine Lord.IV. Wherein are we to imitate Jesus? We perceive that He was of a nature such that He drew to Him good-livers. (John Kempthorne, M. Look to Him as the sustainer of your faith. He had a delight, indeed, not, to use a modern phrase, "in influencing the masses," but in saving you and me. We must not loiter and linger as children returning from a summer's ramble. Oh! You can spread Divine joy — will you? Mackey. (3) Looking unto Jesus, you will get many a direction; for, as He sits at the winning-post, His very presence indicates the way. What do you think you can't get along without? We could hardly keep our feet out of doors. Christ began immediately after him. He was a favourite from the beginning; for blood told then in the estimation of men as much as it has ever done. So He perfects our faith. (Canon Knox Little. Oh, that I might glorify Thee, my Creator, my Preserver, my Redeemer! Or you are reflecting upon the foundation? Condescending love as God, sympathising love as man. Is my life and yours a race with a goal, and a prize and a judge, and a cloud of witnesses? Such likewise is the prepossession in our own favour, so flattering the glass that self-love holds before us, that this also prevents us from seeing our deformities, and marking the true features and complexion of the mind. God alone can tell the blessedness which one redeemed man may be the means of communicating into others. Is there no stubborn will that disobeys, and must needs be broken if things are to get on at all? Why not to his fellows in the race? We are to think of this triumph of the Commander as being, first of all, a revelation and a prophecy for us. Those who would win in the great race must keep their eyes upon Him all along the course, even till they reach the winning-post.1. And the text exhorts us to look to him as our great Exemplar, and to draw from him support and encouragement. How shall we resist this encompassing influence? The great God enjoins it.II. Why, such an idea is false to nature, as it is false to grace. )Joy triumphingJohn Kempthorne, M. A.I. There will not be much trouble in getting men to empty their hands of wood, hay, and stubble, if they see that there is a chance of filling them with the treasures, which gleam from the faces or lives of others, or which call to them from the page of Scripture. "Ye are the salt of the earth," said Christ, and "Ye are the light of the world." And another subject-matter of that joy — we dare to say it, because His apostle taught us to do so — was the crowning in Himself of human perfection — the vindication of goodness. Perhaps this may seem not very much in your way, and more for your fathers and mothers. This, the highest height of all human excellencies, is crowned on the throne of the Crucified, in the person of " Him who liveth and was dead."III. Now the attractiveness of the Saviour was Such that these men wanted Him, and called for Him. IN human warfare, those who fight are tired even by their victory; in Divine warfare, they are strengthened. "Let us lay aside the sin which doth so closely cling to us" (R.V.). And it is not merely in business that men put on weights. Loving. )The injury of a besetting sinC. )The Christian raceJ. We see in Him a willing sufferer for others, and we learn willingly to suffer. He " endured the Cross." 11. This is the proper work and business of religion: this the duty which God requires at our hands; and has therefore, undoubtedly, given us ability to perform. 2. Look to Him as your rewarder, and be of good cheer, and let the prospect of that great crown stimulate and sustain and lift you above the ills and the sorrows of life. Some ancient historic heirloom, which he dearly prized? We are not to think of our exalted brethren as forming in the midst of heaven a brilliant cloud, admirable in the eye of imagination, yet exercising no real practical influence over the earth; but as a cloud full of mystic rain and dew, imparting life and beauty to those who dwell on the earth. We must go on patiently under all difficulties.4. When fear strikes its chord call upon Gideon. This shows that His bearing was sweet and attractive. As we naturally are we cannot take such a thing in — we want to do what we please — we fret at having any restraint put on us. Master.3. B. Meyer, B. A.I. They contain far more than a careless eye can see on the surface. To assist us in forming a Tight judgment of our conduct, and seeing it in a true light, the best method perhaps would be, to put ourselves as much as may be out of the question; to divest ourselves of all concern in it; and to suppose that we are passing judgment, not on ourselves, but on another person.(G. Run, that you may come nearer to Jesus. It is one of the virtues of Jesus that He transforms into His own image those who look at Him. )The sin which cloth so easily beset us.The besetting sinE. They will have much to do in making you the men and women that you shall be. That humiliation, especially, which becomes us as rebellious creatures, will be best promoted by looking at a suffering Saviour, bending under the load of our guilt in the garden and on the Cross. 3. His joy was the joy too of being recognised as the great Joy Giver to a number of men which no man can number; and the joy of working out, even to its consummation, the greatest and most glorious work of Jehovah.II. We have to strive against the whole body of sin, everything which is against the holy will of God, "every evil inclination, all iniquity and profaneness, neglect and haughtiness, strife and wrath, passion and corruption, indolence and fraud, every evil motion, every impure thought, every base desire, every unseemly thought."2. Some months ago we had an ice storm. He threw himself like a judgment-bolt into the face of rulers. But a friend came alongside, and when I put my arm into his, and had his support and his company, the tiredness left me, and I could have walked half a dozen of miles, and sometimes did walk backwards and forwards for a good half hour. "I forgot that." They must have distraction, pleasure, society, travel, to relieve the jaded mind. She went joyfully home, and I can suppose her children to have said to her, "Mother, how are you looking so happy? We could hardly keep our feet out of doors. It always takes a resolute effort fixedly to contemplate, and to bring heart and mind really into contact with unseen things and unseen persons. His human nature had in it the strongest possible faith, and on this account you may call Jesus " the prince of faith." While we are fighting Amalek in the valley below, one greater than Moses is holding up His hands for us in heaven, and through His intercession we shall prevail.III. Maclaren, D. D.Consider the remarkable aspects and relationships in reference to our faith in which Christ is here set forth.I. or will you neglect the foundation? "We love Him, because He first loved us" (1 John 4:19). And now what has that to do with us? )The Commander's conflict and triumphA. 1. L. Cuyler, D. D.A man's besetting sin is the one that jumps with his inclinations. We have to look to Jesus, first, by trusting in that which He has wrought for us. By effort. He is the channel which connects us with God. Is our race faith? Martin. S. Storrs, D. D.I. But how shall this be obtained? UNDER WHAT ASPECTS ARE WE TO LOOK TO JESUS?1. He endures the one, but He despises the other. Yes, it has its roots, remember, in a rugged soil. Do not you suppose that this joy that He saw in the future made Him a man of joy, and not of sorrow? By friendship with Himself.III. But if He were to give you His strength, it would not be so difficult, would it? So the next step for us is to be filled with God's Spirit. While we are fighting Amalek in the valley below, one greater than Moses is holding up His hands for us in heaven, and through His intercession we shall prevail.III. This, the highest height of all human excellencies, is crowned on the throne of the Crucified, in the person of " Him who liveth and was dead."III. A very small sin, a very little self-gratification, may hide the light. WHAT THEN, WE ASK, ARE THOSE OPPOSING FORCES WHICH THIS PRINCIPLE IS REQUIRED TO BREAK AND CONQUER?1. He photographs Himself upon all sensitive hearts. He knew how He should meet the unconquered foe, Death, and by yielding awhile before him, turn and rout him all the more gloriously. So soon as He entered upon His course as a public minister, He showed great aptness in teaching. Jesus Christ, then, is our only hope of salvation. True faith neither goes away from Christ Jesus, nor takes a roundabout road to Jesus, nor so much as dreams of going beyond Jesus. For faith is dependence upon God, and surely never did human being so utterly hang upon the Father, nor submit himself so absolutely to be moulded and determined by Him, nor yield his will up so completely to that will. All sin is, to choose something else rather than God. And it takes a very strenuous effort to bring the unseen Christ before the mind habitually, and so as to produce effects in the life. She went joyfully home, and I can suppose her children to have said to her, "Mother, how are you looking so happy? It taught her the lesson, that, in the hour of danger and trouble, deliverance is to be found, and found only, by looking unto Jesus.(T. H. )The necessity of looking to ChristE. The joy set before Jesus was the joy which must be awakened in Jesus as the means of diffusing and spreading so much blessedness. It is the "old Adam" lurking behind every hedge. Lewis, B. A.I. You might direct their eyes to the Star of Bethlehem through the telescope of faith and holy confidence; but, alas! It is with Him, above all else, that we must have to do.1. He showed us how to believe, and believe even on this earth where there is everything to tempt our faith and to cherish unbelief. By the study of His biography.2. Many a good writer has been spoiled to make an insolvent merchant; not a few good housekeepers to make execrable poets; now and then an execrable mechanic to make a poor preacher. R. Look at Him in the place of His atoning death.3. Nature approves moderation; is disgusted and oppressed by excess. Lewis, B. On Him all heaven is gazing, and can you turn away? Because He is the dearest object of human love.II. And another subject-matter of that joy — we dare to say it, because His apostle taught us to do so — was the crowning in Himself of human perfection — the vindication of goodness. Let us look off unto Jesus. Seek after more near and dear fellowship with Him.(C. You will observe that Christ had the ordinary experience which men have, of being a child, and of being loved by His father and mother and His brothers and sisters. And we have the contumely and shame of His death presented, not as showing to us His willing self-abasement and His loving lowliness, but as revealing to us the scorn with which He looked upon all hindrances that would bar His path and shake His resolute will.II. Then, as Himself continuing in faith to the end, He is "the finisher." Thousands of Christians are like water-logged vessels. (3) Our Saviour is to be imitated in His perseverance. Jesus, too, Himself speaks of it. The world pities us, because it sees only what we give up; but it would hold its sympathy if it could also see how much we receive — "good measure, pressed down, and running over given into our bosoms."III. This tendency must be corrected, in order to Christ's becoming all that He would be to any.III. This legend is founded in the truth that the powerful and blessed memory of our dead is a preservative against sin, a strengthening to virtue. Similarly we are prepared to forego a good deal, when once we catch sight of the spiritual acquisitions which beckon to us. 11. Now, I aver that it happens to no individual in his lifetime to experience so much joy as was compressed into the life of Jesus Christ; and a very slight examination of His history would make it incontrovertible. God does not give us Christ piecemeal, but wholly. I was not enjoying it, but I knew I should enjoy it at the top. Again, He is "the prince of faith" as leading us into faith. Paternal love as God, fraternal love as man. He had a delight, indeed, not, to use a modern phrase, "in influencing the masses," but in saving you and me.3. )Looking unto JesusL. That active mind, which so long had been occupied with things of earth, was busied now with higher and nobler contemplations. When a man does a heroic action at some cost to himself, he knows that though it costs it counts. The answer is found in the twofold aspect of the Cross.1. Is there a joy set before us? If there be a joy set before us, who has set it before us? "Looking to Jesus" supplies the strongest motive to run well our Christian race; that is, love towards Himself. Our celestial kinsmen minister to us, for they exalt our conception of the nature we possess, of the inheritance to which we are destined. To obtain a portion in that great peace, we have only to look by faith to Jesus, as our substitute and Redeemer.II. "Let us run with patience the race that is set before us," says the sacred writer. You cannot copy Him too exactly. And how were they saved? Now in the chapter before that from which our text is taken (chap. Obedient.3. Now, you will observe that when Christ entered upon His ministry the first step He took in it was toward social joy; for after the temptation in the wilderness He went north and joined His parents, and in Cana of Galilee attended a wedding. It ought to be the consolation of Christians in these latter days as much as it was in primitive times. We should leave the wreck altogether — leave it behind us, "look away" from it, and jump into the lifeboat. He should maintain great self-possession. They were not perfect patterns, and so are not safe to be followed in everything. What of secret sins which you try to conceal, but which are always growing stronger, and if unsubdued will go on as they are doing, burning like a fire within, and eating out your very heart and soul? Concomitant with this experience was another — that which was connected with the performance of His miracles of mercy. Their life should be salutarily influenced by the good who have departed. It is said that the Kohei-noor diamond is only half its original size, the other half being in a distant country, where it was found in the possession of some one who used it as a common flint. Life is a journey; BUT LIFE IS SOMETHING MORE. "No," she answers, "but it is all right. And so the writer points away from them all, and as it were, says, "Do not stop at these. upward! Let me remind you THAT SUCH BLESSEDNESS IS WON FOR YOU. But we have a more decided case yet. Is my life and yours a race with a goal, and a prize and a judge, and a cloud of witnesses? "Ye are the salt of the earth," said Christ, and "Ye are the light of the world." The eyes outstrip the feet; but this also is well, for the feet will thus be made to move the faster. Means of grace.III. A revelation and a prophecy. We may well be humbled when we think how unlike the best of us are to our example, and what poor blurred copies of His character we show to mankind. By coming to Christ. We also begin looking unto Jesus because of what He has wrought in us.II. Marsh. It is called "the joy" — that is, the cause and the occasion of the joy, "who, for the joy that was set before Him."I. Big, human-hearted he may be, but power of initiative or incentive has he none. To do His will is rest and heaven.2. If in the very acme and midnight of His suffering He had so much peace that He could divide it and share it with His disciples, do you not suppose that now, a Prince of Peace, He is also a Prince of Joy?(H.
