ituol " " f THE BAIH COUNTY NEWS-OUTLOOK OwingsviUe, Ky.mWeek of November 28 - December 5, 2002 2 DEATHS AND FUNERALS The Titus 2:11-15 Gal. 2:20 By: Luther M. Cain As Paul traveled over the country on his missionary journeys he con- stantly proclaimed a religion of purity. He had faith in a God who revealed himself in splendor and great power. We hear him say, "The grace of God has appeared, training us to renounce irreligion." With these words Paul be- gan to shake traditional idolatries. Wherever Paul went he found that the prevailing religious practices not only endorsed but encouraged the in- dulging of baser passions. At Athens and Ephesus hundreds of "sacred" prostitutes lured and enticed men to abase themselves in the name of their false gods. The disclosure of God's grace to men had a deep and profound effect upon this situation. The great mark of the true Christian has always been his changed moral character. Paul says, "denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live sober, upright and godly lives in this world." Unholy passions were turned loose when Jesus was crucified. Among those who had .shouted "Hosanna" on the occasion of his entry into Jerusalem were those who cried "crucify" him. Surely there were those who spent the rest of their lives regretting their part in that great crime. There is a very fine demarkation line that divides man's goodness from his baseness, and it takes but little stimulation to arouse ones worldly passions. The power of good can be despoiled by passions. The struggle for righ- teousness in thought, and deed calls for staunch souls immersed in the grace Cross Calls Us On bear tesimony to goodness. It can prove that a life of goodness is indeed life at its best. Jesus gave himself to redeem us from all iniquity. This is one of the great truimphs of the cross. It was for you he died upon the cross, this blessed truth can be owned by each and every one of us. Jesus gave himself"to purify for himself a people of his own who are zealous for good deeds." (2:14) Many of our songs about the cross exult in and exalt the personal salva- tion it affords. This is one of the tri- umphs of the cross. When Jesus was placed on the cross he had little assur- ance of the loyalty of the men he had chosen left. His great teaching, his friendship, his miracles failed to give him" a people of his own". As the days passed men began to reflect upon the meaning of his death. When they rec- ognized Jesus as the victor instead of the victim, they entered into the fel- lowship of his suffering. As the days passed the number of those believing on Jesus multiplied. The cross had given Jesus what he wanted most - "a people of his own." The cross speaks to us today. The cross calls us to go on in His name. How do we show our gratitude for Jesus' great love for us? Singing hymns, reading the Bible, and praying are forms of gratitude. But this alone is not enough. Christians are urged "to be obedient, to be ready for any honest work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all men." (3:102) Such demands are difficult. But if you follow them they will vouch for the integrity of your Christian fellow- I The Bath County Band Boosters are doing their annual fruit sale until December 2nd.
