Main Street Petersburg 812-354-6775 Sunday morning worship service at 10 :30 a.m. There's Just Something About That Name Several years ago, Bill and Gloria Gaither wrote a beauti- ful song by the same name as the title of this article. There is indeed, something wonderful and powerful about the name of Jesus. There is some over-simplification when using that phrase and it should be quickly realized that we're not talking about magic. We are talking about God's truth and God's power through the cen- turies. Millions of people from every culture and ethnicity have discovered its profound truth. The name could be consid- ered just another name, but when thinking about Jesus, the Christ, the prophesied Messi- ah, there is something special about it. The Gospel of Matthew records that an angel of God told Joseph, Mary's betrothed husband, His name would be Je- sus, "because he will save peo- ple from their sins." Embracing Jesus completely, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually, brings change to our lives. Jesus brings change to all people, young and old. When we follow Him, life takes on deeper meaning. When we follow Him, He helps keep us out of the ditches of life. When we follow Him, He empowers us to deal with life's most difficult circumstances. His presence and power in our lives can heal broken hearts, resolve conflict, and bring us peace in the midst of life's storms. Greater still, Je- sus brings forgiveness to every facet of our lives. There really is something about that name…and I'm all about Jesus. Dennis Randall, Minister VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E.

Stewardship thoughts It has been said, "When you put money in the bank, it grows. When you put money in the offering for the Lord, you grow. Jesus said, "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust de- stroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heav- en, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Mat- thew 6:19 -21). Because He Lives.

Passage to Ponder "In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you complete- ly forgotten this word of en- couragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, 'My son, do not make light of the Lord's dis- cipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens every- one he accepts as his son.' En- dure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their fa- ther? " (Hebrews 12:4-7, 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.

Help yourself to "FREE FOOD" and may God Bless all of you. Continue from last week: Not till I started reading the Bible and listening to teach- ers and preachers, did I know that all the Old Testament was written by the Jews and was written for the nation of Isra- el. But it's for the learning of the Gentiles. This is why we should always bless Israel, be- cause without them sharing the word of their God ( Yah- weh) the Gentiles would have been doomed and lost forever. I didn't know that God had a preference over Jews and Gen- tiles. "For you are a holy peo- ple to the Lord your God; and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for himself. A special treasure above all peoples who are on the face of the earth" (Deuteronomy 14:2). Even when God came to the earth in human form, ( Je- sus), He preached and taught to Jews only, with a couple of exceptions (Matthew 10 :5 -6). These twelve Jesus sent out and commanded them, say- ing: Do not go into the way of the Gentile, and do not en- ter into a city of the Samari- tans. But go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. Paul the apos- tle of the Gentiles and why he couldn't be the 13th disciple. Continue next week.

"Wash your hands, you sin- ners, and purify your hearts. Come near to God and he will come near to you" (vs. 8). These are sanitizing words describing the necessity of turning to God to scour away the soil of sin from our lives. James then further explained the cleaning method: "Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble your- selves before the Lord, and he will lift you up (vs. 9 -10)." Dealing with our sin is hum- bling. But, hallelujah, God is faithful to turn our "washing" into "worship"—Patricia Ray- bon. Josh Sanders, Pastor Sherry Julian, Reporter WHITE RIVER CHAPEL UMC 3555 W.

So many trials come into our lives and along with the busi- ness 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 righteousness; 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 un- derstanding—He is in control. Facebook: White River Chap- el UMC, Jeff Pinney.
