If any man love not the Lord
Jesus Christ let him be Ana-
thema Maranatha; 1 Cor. 16:22.
These startling words are here
thrown in the midst of the clos-
ing salutation of the apostles
message to a church of his own
planting that was waning in its
love for the Christ. You can
sense the writer’s grief and
tender solicitude because of the
deepening divisions and increas
ing contentions among its mem
bers, many of whom doubtless
had first heard the words of
eternal life from the lips of Paul
The book as a whole is char
acterized by the, challenge it
makes to everyone, who thru
grace has been made a believer
in Christ Jesus, to let his daily
walk in all of life’s tasks, whatso
ever they are, be in keeping with
his professed love for his Lord.
The apostle himself is filled so
unmeasurably full of that love
for a divine Saviour that he must
needs in this epistle write the
nama for the Redeemer of men
more than four score and ten
times, in each instance suggest
ing something about Him that
makes Him altogether lovely.
You will notice at times that he
is wont to use these names sing
ly as if to call attention to each
separate meaning for us: again
he arranges them in pairs that
we might behold their combined
beauty; but here, when he would
fully persuade men to live up to
the highest and best and noblest
that redemption makes possible
for us, he would place the three
together: If any man love not
the Lord Jesus Christ. If these
separate and combined relation
ships to you, excite within you
no genuine love for Him, you
must be accursed from Him.

Will the reader not bear with
me a few brief words as to why
men do not love the Lord Jesua
Christ. I am thinking certainly
it must be first of all because
they do not know Him. How
truly did John in the first chap
ter of his gospel strike deeply at
the whole cause of man’s heart
remaining alienated from Christ.
Said he, That was the true Light
that lighteth every man that
cometh into the world, He was
in the world and the world was
made by Him and the world knew
Him not It was the one thing

Jehovah revealed to Isaiah in a
vision, as the cause for Israel’s
backslidings and idolatry: The
ox knoweth his owner and the
ass his master’s crib; but Israel
doth not know, my people doth
Just one word more. The text
suggests to us the awful penalty
that comes from sinning against
divine love. Let him be cut off
from the grace of God at the
coming of the Christ. It is an
awful thing to sin against human
love. The light has gone out of
full many a life because of it.
May I not point to one concrete
example, in the Bible, of the
blight that comes to a life so sin
ned against, and the death and
destruction to the one who so
grossly sins. David s mourning
for a lost son that had sinned
against his love is but a faint
picture of a lost soul that will not
come to love the Lord Jesus
Men beguile themselves that
life and love belong to themselves
and that they can do what they
will with them and get by with
impunity. But beloved here is
the real test of the purity of your
religion and mine. Neither the
beauty of your religious creed,
nor the orthodoxy of your ritual-
ism nor even the harmony of
your church with an accepted
Bible standard will suffice for a
test of true discipleship. If you
love Him all is well. If the
Sabbath with its worship, the
church with its program for tell
ing the world of a needed Saviour
if the story of the Christ and His
surpassing love for men, however
poorly told, make no appeal to
you and me in the Sabbath morn-
ing hour, had we not better call
in question the reality of our
professed love for Him? Simon,
son of Jonas lovest thou me?
Let that question probe all our
hearts today, and may every
answer be: Lord thou knowest
all things, thou knowest that I
love thee. Your true answer is
seen at all times in your con
stancy at the hours of worship
and the measure of sacrifice you
joyfully make to extend His king
dom to the "uttermost parts of
