John Thompson :i I i l:i, " Pure ' Celebrated with chocolate,  flowers, and candlelight dinners, - February is known as the "love" month. How wonderful it is that God, who created the universe, ,considered the emotional needs . of mankind, so he gave them the girl of love. I am sure there are readers who would argue this pomt. Having experienced the pain of having loved and lost, whether through decisions or death, many would say that love can be a cruel thing. This won- derful gift of God is an example of how the fall of man into sin, and the distortion by Satan of God's girls to man has left us with a twisted version of the original. God, in his wisdom, created mankind to love and be loved. No better words express this than John 3:16 which says, "For God so loved the world, He gave His Only Begotten Son..." What a picture of what love should look like. The one who loves gives their most prized possession to express their love. We are aware that, even in the church, the twisted version of love toward God and others may be seen. How often do our pray- ers express selfishness on our part toward God? How often do we take His love and mercy for granted, which causes us to live our lives for our own purposes and pleasure? How many times do we tread on the love of God, assuming he will always take us back, forgive us, and bless us? I Love wonder what could happen in our world if every person who professed to know Christ would offer God prayers of love and gratitude for who He is, without demanding Him to meet their needs. I wonder what it would be : like for believers to ask God what they might offer Him. Even more incredible than this, I wonder what our community would be like if we chose to love our fellow man, rather than seeking to take advantage of, to use, or abuse one another. oun.ds . like. a. Valentine's Day fairy tale doesn't it? It is if only we choose to continue in our own way. God offered a solution. His love expressed through His Son, Jesus, has the power to help us become those who truly love God and others. Certainly, human relationships go far beyond a single day of cards, flowers and chocolates. Certainly, love cannot be packaged in a red heart shaped box, for after the 14 th there are another 364 days that will need some expression of love. In the same way a few minutes on Sunday will never suffice to answer the call of God to love. It begins now, it begins today, it can last for eternity, so why don't you find a place, sit down, and tell this wonderful Creator that you have fallen in love with Him, and then let Him tell you that He's always been in love with you, even at your worst.

Compliments of Pastor Jessie M. Jones 762-7963 One morning in 1977 1 had .just got to my office when I heard a sound like ! had never heard before. When I looked out all I could see was smoke and a cloud of dust. 1 knew there had been an automobile accident or a plane crash. I rushed to the scene and was the first one there. I am sorry to say that it was an alcohol related accident. Two men had been thrown from the cab of a pickup truck. I found the first man with his head laying over the embankment. I turned him so that he could breathe and he told me that he was okay and asked me to check on his friend. He then drew a breath and died. About 20 years went by and we were playing a gospel con- cert in a church somewhere near Bristol. After the service a lady Dante Lives On will host a Hot Dog dinner on February 16. Hot dogs, baked beans, cole slaw and a dessert will be available at $5 plate. Come by and enjoy came and bought some tapes She"questioned me about th accidefit: She asked me if I wa the 3egsie Jones and asked if l could Temember anything aboul the .accident. She ask if I remembered if her husband Rad called on the name of the Lord. I told her no that the only thing he said to me was that he as alright and to check on his friend and trick he died. That has run through ;m mind anumber of times. ,he we our life span out' for saran'and leave this world it is the oneS.we leave behind Who suffer for our mistake. Do ;you have a testimony to leave behind because the Lord said, Beho]d, I stand at the door and knock ;and whosqevcr will let Him come and tal( of the water of;life freely. ", '" o.
