This week, PAWS is fea- turing an approximate- ly two-year-old, big gal named Zest, who wants all to know she doesn't need much, just an owner and love. She is an attractive hound/boxer mix with silky brindle-colored fur with white accents. She would love to have an ac - tive owner to take her on long walks and just hang out with. Zest has a zest for life and is just waiting to share it with someone. She is spayed and has all her shots. You can adopt her by calling 812-354-9894.

Dr. Robert Asa, Minister football players and asked the question "what is impos- sible with God? " The idea was to hear their answer, nothing. Which is true, we believe that with God every- thing is possible (Matthew 19:26). This week while preach- ing over the latter half of John 17, the words of Jesus, or should I say the prayer of Jesus to the Father right be- fore he is arrested the night before his execution, struck me. Jesus' prayer was very purposeful, and Jesus specif- ically prayed that the Father would make and keep his fol- lowers one. Jesus knew that what the apostles would face in his absence would be enough to divide them or give the enemy a chance to break them away from each other. But Jesus also knew that if his followers were united, that nothing would be impossible, in the king- dom of God, with his follow- ers unified, the kingdom of God would persevere. Everyone welcome.

Verse to Ponder For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father JESUS CHRIST OUR FIRM FOUNDATION 1415 N.

"O Lord, how long will I call for help and You not hear? I cry out to You, 'Vio- lence.' Yet You do not save" (Habakkuk 1:2). Habakkuk's words seem to be a cry of desperation. As a prophet, he has been praying for others and wit- nessing to them, telling them of God's word and a coming judgment. But no one seemed to be willing to turn from their sin and the violence seemed to increase. Sound familiar? God does hear, though we may feel he doesn't by what's going on around us. But sometimes God says "no," and other times He says "wait." Only His timing and judgment are perfect. He does want us to contin- ue praying though. I would encourage us to pray with an expanded vision. Not simply praying for the sav- ing of our loved ones, but al- so for their active participa- tion in the work of our Lord, for God's glory.

Thursday, Aug. 22, Bible study at 6:30 p.m. "They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world" ( John 17:16). God's ideal of man was manifested in the life and character of Jesus Christ. Had it not been for the fall, every man would have lived such a life. The object of the atonement is to bring men back to the same moral plane that God intended Ad- am and his posterity to live upon, and if your life is below this, you are living beneath your privilege and the pow- er of the atonement. You may preach about Je- sus, but do you preach Jesus? You may preach about holi- ness, but do you preach holi- ness? You may preach about the power, but do you preach with the Holy Ghost and fire sent down from heaven? If you do, the result will be re- vival. Chad Searls, Pastor Independent will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Mat- thew 6:14-15, NIV ). God bless you and keep you. We welcome you to all ser- vices. Come and worship Je- sus with us. See our Facebook page Glezen Revival Center. Web- site: – E-mail address: glezenrevivalcen- Joe Henson, Pastor Matt Haycraft, Reporter
