OBSERVE IT BY ATTENDING THE CHURCH OF YOUR CHOICE! . #k ...... ~ ." * I iI I i"- ! II 11 .l || ! al Bible Material: John 14 through 16. Devotional Reading: John 16:7-15. Home of the Spirit LeBson for March 12, 1961 llVOU know him," said Jesus to hi8 friends, speaking of the Holy Spirit. Could he say as much to the average Christian today? On the contrary, the ordinary Christian nowadays finds the Holy Spirit a hard problem. His notions about the Spirit are very hazy His immediate reaction to Jesus' words, "You know him," would be a denial and a question: "No, I don't know him. How can I know him ?" One reason why we are confused Dr. Foreman and uncertain about the Holy Spirit may be that we start think- ins at the wrong point. We won- der what "Spirit" means, and what "Holy" means. ~Since they are two X's in our minds, of course the Holy Spirit means notl:- ~ lug definite either. A better place to start is not with some definition. ~but to look at what Jesus had to say about this. We must remem- ber that this "You know him" was ~:spoken before Pentecost. There had been no "descent of the Spirit" on the first Christians. "In My Nama" As a matter of history, m~ persons have claimed to pos:~e~ or to be possessed by, the I-~c Spirit; but not all these perz~ have been acknowledged by t Church. In I John 4:1 (an eptsl written by the author of the 4~ Gospel) Christians are told not l believe every spirit but to t~ them to see whether they are t~-'~ "of God." The test spoken of : the Epistle is suggested already the Gospel: Is the alleged "Sp~: in harmony with Christ ? Does L Spirit "confess" Jesus, is t1 Spirit "in the name" of Jesu~ There have been in American hi= tory several self-styled prophet or Bearers of the Spirit, but the church has not accepted them Just on their own say-so; indeed, (though it's a feeble false prophet that can't get somebody to believe him!) the church has rejected nearly all these prophets so-called, largely because their lives were not Christlike and many of their teachings contradicted or distorted the teachings of Christ. "Spirit of Truth" Another, sign by which we can know the Holy Spirit is the simple sign of truth. God does not sponsor lies. "I am so full of the Spirit that I can't sin any more," a man told the writer of these lines some years ago. Well, that man, still claiming to be full of the Spirit, first coveted and then ran away with another man's wife. He had convinced her, poor soul, that since he was filled with the Holy Spirit anything he wanted to do would be free from sin. A Christian with better sense would have a right to suspect a man who claimed that it is right to break the Ten Com- mandments and to do what God has condemned as sin. So when people who Claim to be "spiritual" make Bible interpretations that twist and destroy what the Bible actu- ally teaches; when they make prophecies that do not come true; when they claim to have the cen- tral place in God's kingdom which rightly belongs only to Christ, then we have every reason to know that whatever they may be filled with, nonsense, madness or wickedness, they ar~ not filled with the Spirit of Truth. Oonditions The Christian church very early in its existence conclude< that the Holy Spirit is nothing lea than God. In other words, the dec trine of the Trinity meets us here already in these simple yet pro- found sentences from Jesus' last mzpper with his friends. If it seems too hard to understand, remember three simple truths. One: If you could understand all about the Trinity, you would know all about God--and only God can do that. Two: You will never be any neare) God than you are to the Hol: Spirit, no nearer than you are t~ Christ. Three: If Father, Son ami Holy Spirit are to "make their home" with you, there are two conditions. First is love and the s~ {~Imtest, of ~the ~rst) i~ O~Ce.~L~0d IS Lord of ~ll men but he comes to make his horn only where the door of loviv obedience is open to him.

Only wise men and hungry children fully appreciate their blessings! Many of God's gifts, like the air we breathe, are received without " .bought. Others, like the abundance of the harvest, we think about only in season. Still others, like our religious heritage, get varying degrees of attention and response according to our spiritual perception.., or the precariousness of our plight. This isn't Christmas... or Easter. And we hope it is not a time of personal crisis for you and, your family... If it's just a normal week, full of the routine of life--then it's an ideal time to remember your blessings. And Sunday will be an ideal day to begin, renew or strengthen that wholesome habit of worshipping God in the church of your .choir. THE CHURCH FOR ALL . .. ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the grdatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: fl) For his own sake, (2) For his children's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly ~md read your Bible daily.
