Pastor, Wallace Sexton. opics of TrOth Compliments of Pastor Jessie M. Jones ,762-7963 Well, we have entered into a new year and I hope and pray that it will be a happy one for you all. According to the Bible, some amazing things have happened on New Year's Day. In !I Kings 13 & 20 it teaches that the Israelites were at battle against the Moabites. Prior to that, one of the greatest prophets that ever lived named Elisha took sick and died and was buried in a sepulchre. During the battle, one of the Israelite soldiers was kille& Not having the time to bury him properly, they cast him down into the sepulchre of Elisha. When the dead soldier's body touched the bones of Elisha he was instantly revived and stood up on his feet. Well, it doesn't have to be New Year's Day for God to work miracles. I think one of His greatest miracles in my life was when He saved a wretch like me. One could fill up this newspaper and thousands more just like it and still not be able to begin to record all the miracles God has performed. Maybe you need a miracle in your life. Perhaps you have,an illness; maybe financial or I ariml issues; maybe yot]'re sin-sic which is the absolute worsr+0f all. You can die i~ a sick body and go to Heaven - but you cannot die in a sinful body find go to Heaven, becaiase the Bible says that no sin t:an enter. There are many diseases t hat doctors and researchers ha, ve found no cure for. But there is a cure for that sickness called sin. It was found some two thousand years, ago when Jesus Christ gave his life in order to save man-kin& It was not really the Roman-soldiers who put Himon that cross but instead it was the sins or" this world. We all had a part .in +helping to crucify the: Lor& So I thank God for the cure that only He could provjde? for oursin-sickness. ! hope yotr will thank Him every day too:byI living for Him.
