Bible Material: James 1:21-22; 2; 5; Galatlans 5:25-25. Devotional Reading: Galatians 5:22-26. ~t| want what you have," the A young man said. But this was not a stick-up. The young man was not a bandit, the older man was not rich. One was a brilliant young Brazilian, the other a Chris- tian missionary in that country. The young man had been the mis. i~!l slonary's com- panion and help- meet er for several ~~I months, living un. ~~ der severe condi- tions in the back ~~l country of the l~iJ Amazon. In that mmm~:mmz~.mmm country one does Dr. Foreman not put on a "front.'~ What a man is, comes out very plainly. So when the young man said "! want what you have" he knew what he meant: it was the missionary's religion, his faith. This kind of thing has been happening for a long, long time. It began with Jesus, didn't it? His friends wanted what he had, or to put it another way, they wanted to be the kind of per- son he was. Dead Faith or Living? What is it that "sells' Christian- ity? Why is it today the world's leading religion? A great deal of what we might call sales talk is going on all the time. But why do people buy anything? They buy on performance, not talk. The other day one of the big motor companies discontinued the manu- facture of a certain automobile. This car had had wonderful sales talk; the commercials for it on TV" would make you think that there was no car in its class. But the public didn't buy it. When they went to look at the car it.~elf and try it out, and compare it, they found that if they had tha~ much money to put on a car, they might better buy some o~l,r make. The talk was good; ti~. performance was poor. So, if there had never been any- thing you could see, anything in action and behavior, about men of "faith," Christian religion would have died off long ago. "By their fruits you shall know them," said Jesus once, comparing true men with hnl}ow men. And that has been the real test always. Chris- tians are meu of faith; but if the "faith" is not matched by what Jesus called "fruits," and what James called "works," it is dead. Fruit of Thn Word We can call what we are talking about, fruits of faith, but that is not the whole picture. The whole New Testament teaching bears on this point: that the highes~ human goodness is not a strictly human product. The highest good- ness (and if that word seems weak to you, then say the highest human perfection, or strength of char- acter) is God's product, brought forth in the lives of those who are open and receptive to Him. As Baron yon Hugel put it, the Christian virtues are supernatural virtues. The highest and best that man can attain, he cannot attain by himself, but only as he fives in God. (The deeper truth is thai even the lowest levels of good ness, if they are genuinely good. are also from God. But these of- ten are attained without giving God a thought. To live in the heights, it is absolutely necessary to be consciously devoted to God.) So James speaks of the "im- planted Word," meaning the Word of God. Fruit ot The Spirit Does all this sound cloudy and mystical to some people? It need not. We are fortunate in thin three of the most influential per- sons in the New Testament whose words have come dov~ to us, were plain and outspoker men: Jesus, and Paul, and James. James doesn't speak of "fruits" all the time, he speaks of "works." Put your faith to work, he means in all he says. And he ~ives some plain and simple examples of whal he is driving at, as any one can se~ by reading his short letter. WheJ messengers came to Jesus from John, asking, Are you the Christ really the Man of God? Jesus de! not reply by giving them an anal ysis of his mind and feelings He took them around with him on a busy day, and at evening said "Go tell John what you have seer and heard." When Paul, in hi.~ own way, speaks of "fruits of ~he Spirit," and names them (Ga! 5:22-25) he names such things 'a~ love, kh~dness, self-control.

ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is s 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: (I) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. fS) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) F~ the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church resularly and read your Bible daily, Day Book Chapter Verses Sunday Isaiah 55 6-13 Monday I Kings 19 9-18 Tuesday Psalms 37 23-29 Wednesday Psalms 37 34-40 Thursday I Peter 1 8-9 Friday I Peter 1 18-21 Saturday Ephesians 6 10..18 This is life ! On top of the world.., then lost in the depths, For a child it can be exciting" sport. For a grownup it is bitter reality. No other resource in life is better geared to this frightening swing t religion. For centuries it has provided purpose for our summits, and courage our valleys. Don't let some imagined sense of the inevitable chain you to the of fate. The Church, its message rooted in the life of Jesus Christ, a Faith for climax.., and for crisis. Attend church next Sunday. Let the love of God invade your defeats... f! J opportunity to your victories. . Copyrlght I~Sl Kehte~ AAv. nervi~ 1~e., Str~bu~g, Vb THIS | J. RUSSELL FRITTS, INC. PHILCO DEALER Charles Town, W. Va.
