GOLDEN TEXT--Thy word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against thee. Psalm 119:11. PRIMARY TOPIC--GIving Thanks for God's Book. JUNIOR TOPIC--GIvlng Thanks for God's Book. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC---Studying the Bible Together. YOUNG pEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC--The Bible in National Life. This lesson is a fine illustration of the rightful place of God's Word In the life of a nation. The only cure for national ills Is a return to God and obedience to hls Word. I The Teacher's Spiritual Condition (Ezra 7:10). He prepared hls heart to seek the law of the Lord, to do It, and to teach Israel the statutes and Judgments. II. The Word of God Read (Neh. 8:1-3). 1. The eager assembly (v. 1). The people gathered together and requested Ezra to bring the book of the law. God had touched their hearts, creating within them a yearning for his Word. 2. A representative assembly (v. 2). God's Word should be taught to all classes--men, women, and children. The Spirit of God can speak through his Word to the whole family sitting in the same pew. 3, An appreciative assembly (v. 3). So eager were they to know God's Word that they (Lid not get tired, al- though the lesson lasted for five or six hours.

Due reverence shown (vv. 4, 5).~ When Ezra opened the law all the, people stood up out of respect for God's Word. 2. They Joined heartily In prayer (v. 6). As Ezra led them In prayer they united in saying, "Amen, Amen," bowing their faces to the ground, I IV. God's Word Being Interpreted (vv. 7, 8). The attitude of the people toward God's Word largely depends upon the minister. Proper dignity and solem- nity should be manifested by the mln- ister when reading the Holy Scriptures. 1. He stood up where the people could see him (v. 5). 2. He read distinctly (v. 8). The manner in which many read the Script- ures Is greatly to their discredit. 3. He caused the people to under- stand (v. 8). The supreme business of the minister and teacher is to make the Word of God so plain that old and young can understand. The explana-: tlon should be clear and definite. V. The Effect of Applying God's Word to the Life of the People (vv. 9-18). 1. Coavlctlon of sin (v. 9). The divine method of convicting men of their sin is to have God's Word ap- plied by the Holy Spirit. The Word of God Is quick and powerful (Heb. 4:12). 2. Weeping turned into Joy (vv. 10- 12). When sins have been perceived and confessed there Is forgiveness. Continued mourning ~vill not atone for~ past sins. Furthermore, it dishonors a pardoning God and even unfits the one for present tasks. Joy has a salu- tary effect upon one's entire being. "The Joy of the Lord Is your strength." 3. Blessings were shared with oth- ers (vv, 10-12). True Joy manifests itself in giving to others. Pure religion goes out to minister to the poor (James 1:27). Godliness is not con- tent with having a good time alone. 4. The people obeyed. From the reading of the Scriptures they found that the feast of the tabernacles had long been neglected. They kept this sacred feast in a way that had not been since the days of Joshua. 5. They separated themselves from the ungodly (13:1-3). As soon as they had heard the Word of God they sep- arated themselves from the mixed mul- titude. 6. The house of worship was cleared and order restored (13:4-14). No na- tion or people can be strong which neglects the worship of the true God. 7. The Sabbath was restored (13: 15-22). Israel had long violated the Sabbath. To ignore the essential law of the Sabbath is national suicide. Un- numbered evils followed in the wake of the desecration of God's holy day. 8. God's law of marriage restored (13:73-31). Some of those who had intermarried with the heathen were brought face to face with their sin. They separated themselves from their ungodly companions. God's favor can- not be enjoyed by those who live in disobedience to his Word.
