Jones 762-7963 Just fight the good fight of faith Well, I remember back in the 60's, I had a couple of coal trucks on the road and I had pulled into my friend Jerry Couch's garage to gas up and there was a gentleman in there who was a tire salesman. I was certainly needing a tire for one of my trucks. He said there was no company building a tire that has a guarantee that he had on his tires. He said~ "These tires ar~ unconditionally guaranteed for the lifetime of the tire." Well, I knew where there Was an old tire laying in the creek and it had been there a long time. And I thought it was the brand he sold. And certain- ly it was. So I got it out of the creek and took it down there the next Saturday morning when he run and showed him the tire. I said, "Does this tire have a guar- antee?" He said, "All of our tires have a guarantee." He got his little ruler out and measured the tread on the tire and he said, "To get a brand new big, truck tire, it will cost you $20." Well, that was music to my ears. I paid him and he unloaded me a brand new tire. These tires were U.S. Royal. I don't know" if they even make them anymore. But from that day for- ward, whenever I needed a tire I always bought the tires he ' sold simply because of the guarantee. You might say, "Is that the best deal you ever made?" Certainly not. The best deal I ever made was when somebody told me about Jesus Christ and explained to me that in this walk of life we make many decisions. But in eternity, we only have two decisions. "Heaven or Hell?" No, I didn't find Jesus in the creek like I did the tire. But He found me in a world of sin and on my way to Hell at a high rate of speed. Well, as long as I stayed in the trucking business I stayed with the U. S. Royal tire because of a guarantee. I stay with Jesus Christ because in the King James Version of the Bible I find over 4,000 promises and the Lord has kept every one. He told me He would never leave me or forsake me. He said He would be with me in the 6th trial and in the 7th one. He would not leave me. I find him to be a shelter in time of storm and when I'm not seeing any peace I find that He's the Prince of Peace. And when I'm down in the worry land. I find Him to be the Rock in the worry land. All He's asking of me is to just fight the good fight of faith and endure until the end. And the end for me will be when the clock of time runs down. The next thing I expect to hear is, "You've been faithful over a few things, I'll make you rurer over many," SWCC hosts Sabika Bingo December 6 A Sabika Bingo and Vendor Fair will be held at SWCC in the King Community Center Gym on Tuesday, December 6th hosted by the SWCC's Professional Support Staff Association (PSSA) to fund the PSSA scholarship awarded to deserving stu- dents.
