While he was still living, I used to like visiting Lawrence Roeder.
He lived in ranch country, 15 miles from Harper, and to visit him,
I had to drive a narrow and winding country lane which one has to
drive the way you kiss a porcupine - very carefully. He was in his
80s and was always jolly and glad to see me. Many years ago,
Lawrence had lost his left leg in a farming accident, so most of
his life he had to get around on crutches. Yet he wore his age
and disability gracefully and I never heard him complain. I was
edified by his patient endurance and I think visiting him did me
more good than him.
The Church has learned from Jesus to have a special care and
interest in the sick. In Mark 1:29-39 we see Jesus go grom the
synagogue in Capernaum to the house of Peter which was just a
block away. He had just proclaimed the truth of God in word;
now he proclaims the truth of God in action by heading Peter's
mother-in-law. There is a lesson her for us; our religion does not
belong in church alone. We show our love for Jesus in our
Sunday worship, but we must take this love home and share it in
our daily life. We cannot heal the sick and work miracles as
Jesus did, but we can let our love extend to all the sick.
In addition to the service of doctors and nurses, the sick often
need the help and encouragement of family and friends. A bit of
tender loving care is often one of the most important medicines
that a person can receive. Throughtout the Gospels we read of
Jesus helping the sick whom he loved and cared for. We should
do the same.

FTcm The Pa$tcr*s Heart
by Paster Pen tiewerth
"......you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if
you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul."
This passage speaks of one thing: PASSION! The truth is that
many of God’s people are "passive seekers: not "passionate
seekers". We can so easily fall into the routines of the Christian
life that we don't realize the slow, subtle ways that we can lose
our passion for Christ. This loss of passion is usually hidden
beneath a vail of busy-ness, and church activity. While these
things are noble and aood.are they really what we are called to ?
Are they our First priority?
In light of the current condition of our nation, we must admit that
without God's intervention we are in serious trouble! Consider
the crime, suicide, violence, immorality, etc. Are these our
problems, or someone else's? What can we do about these
things? Or, do we just hope they will go away on their own?
America must have a heaven-sent, nation-wide REVIVAL! The
amazing fact is that God has already written America a
prescription! It is the same one He gave the nation of Israel.
This prescription is found in 2 Chronicles 7:14: "If My people who
are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and
seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear
from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." You
may say, " I know that verse already." The question is not do you
KNOW the verse, the question is are you LIVING the verse.
Some other closely related passages are: Isaih 55:6, Amos 5:4.
The heart of the matter is that we must begin to seek the Lord
with all our hearts! we must ask the Holy Spirit to search our
hearts and who us our sins that we mav repent. We must renew
our passion for Christ! It's time to "clean up our spiritual house".
We are living in a great hour of God's visitation. The Lord is
pouring out His Spirit ! Revival fires are burning across the land!
Let's not miss it! Let's seek God while He may be found! Let
God re-ignite the flame of your passions for Jesus Christ, and
restore Him to "first - love " status in your heart and life. For our
nation, it is a matter of life and death!
