(Romans 6:4 and Colossians 2:12-13). If we can be born again of the Spirit only, why did Christ say to be born of water and Spirit? John 3:3-5. Because He lives.

I have seen the bur- den God has laid on the hu- man race. He has made every- thing beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hu- man heart; yet no one can fath- om what God has done from beginning to end.

Make Yourself Ready "When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am" ( John 14:3, NLT). As Christians, it is amazing to know that Jesus has gone to prepare a place for us to be with him for eternity. With all of the things going on in this world, it is a great com- fort to know that this is not our home, and that Heaven is. We are only here for a God-ap- pointed time and being ready for the day we get to go home, to be with him, has never felt so close. Make yourself ready, for no one knows the day or time Jesus will return to take us home. God bless you and keep you. We welcome you to all ser- vices. Come and worship Je- sus with us.

"Let all that you do be do- ne with love" (I Corinthians 16:14). Seems pretty direct, but it's far from simple. It doesn't mean that someone can't be hurt. It doesn't mean that someone shouldn't be pun- ished. It is about our mo- tives. Jesus said and did ma- ny things that seemed hurt- ful at the time, but every- thing He did was done with love. He allowed Himself to be killed for His love of those who least deserve it—us.

Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him com- pletely; never depend upon your own ideas and inven- tions. Give Him the credit for everything you accomplish, and He will smooth out and straighten the road that lies ahead. And don't think you can decide on your own what is right and what is wrong. Respect the Eternal; turn and run from evil.

"That ye should follow his steps" (I Peter 2:21). It is important that we un- derstand what constitutes a spiritual person. First is the desire to be holy rather than happy. A man may be consid- ered spiritual when he wants to see the honor of God ad- vanced through his life even if it means that he himself must suffer to see it come to pass. The spiritual man wants to carry his cross. The cross, if not forced upon us, we vol- untarily take it up, with full knowledge of the consequenc- es. A man is spiritually minded when he strives to see every- thing from God's viewpoint. The ability to weigh all things in the divine scale and place the same value upon them as God does is the mark of a Spirit-filled life. The spiritual man habitually makes eterni- ty judgments instead of time judgments. Such a man would rather be useful than famous and would rather serve than be served— Dr. A. B. Tozer.

Washington Ave. Otwell 812-766-3344 Facebook: Otwell United Methodist Church and Jeff Pin- ney.

Hope Barnett, Reporter SPURGEON UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 11505 N. Hwy. 61 Spurgeon Pastor Cell 812-202- 8903 or church office 812-922-8215 Church service 9 a.m.; Sun- day school 10 a.m.; Friday Bible study at 1 p.m. Read: I John 3:1-2. "Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in or- der that we may also share in his glory" (Romans 8:17, NIV ). It is God's wish that we be- come part of his family. Jesus taught this when he instruct- ed the disciples to begin their prayer by saying, "Our Father." Jesus shared the glory of the Fa- ther with his disciples and with all of us. Everyone is welcome in the family of faith because our heavenly Father loves us. Thought for the day: I belong to Christ's family of faith. Prayer: "Lord Jesus, thank you for making us a part of your family of faith. Help us to invite others to find in you a real sense of being a family" —Amen. Josh Sanders, Pastor Sherry Julian, Reporter WHITE RIVER CHAPEL UMC 3555 W. SR 56 Bowman 812-582-8896 Sunday worship 9 a.m.; Sun- day school 10 :15 a.m. We are exploring the words in Philippians 4:4-9 and how they can help us thrive in cha- os. So many trials come into our lives and along with the business of life. These things can easily choke out the Life of God in us. But praise God, "But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteous- ness; and all these things will be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33). What things will be add- ed? God's order back into our lives—a peace that passes all understanding—He is in con- trol. Facebook: White River Chapel UMC, Jeff Pinney.
