multitude of impotent folk,
blind, lame, withered, including
one ihfirm man to whom our
Lord addressed - the question,
‘‘Wilt thou be made whole?”
A Itrange question to ask!

thirty-eight years. Perhaps be

follow that where there is an
infirmity there is a desire for
health. Perhaps the impotent
man, like many in our modern
American Welfare State, pre

responsibilities and demands of
health.. Perhaps he preferred to
remain infirm, and be waited on
hand and foot. Jesus never
heals, and Jesus never saves,
unless there is a genuine will

man had to do was to be will

you deserve to be made whole?”
but “Wilt thou be made whole?”
“Whosover will may come,” and
personal willingness is the only
prerequisite to coming.
further, the question asked is
a personal one: “Wilt THOU

of your eternal destiny is a

from God comes as a free gift,
not a reward. We are made
whole, not because of our good
ness or worthiness, but because

ner, do to be made whole? You
must realise your need, for none
would seek a physician who did
not realize he was sick. You
must realize your inability to 1
meet your need. You cannot
lift yourself up by your own
bootstraps; you cannot save
yourself. Then, resting upon the
sacrifice, the ability, and the
promise of Jesus to receive all
who come to Him in faith be
lieving, you must come for par
don and cleansing.,
And finally, like the infirm
man in the story, you must arise
and Walk (John 1:8). That is,
there must be a change in your
life. You must be different be
cause you have had a personal
encounter with God. I don’t!

obeyed the command of Jesus'
to arise and walk. Neither do

Wilt thou be made whole?
Jesus, the Great Physician,
stands ready to save you. Come
to Him and give Him a chance.

Here’s the car that reads you loud and

rolet. We started out by trimming the
outside size a bit (to give you extra inches
of clearance for parking and maneuvering)
but inside we left you a full measure of
Chevy comfort. Door openings are as
much as 6 inches wider to give feet, knees,
and elbows the undisputed right of way.
And the new easy-chair seats are as much
as 14% higher —just right for seeing, just
right for sitting.
Once you’ve settled inside you’ll have
high and wide praises for Chevrolet’s
spacious new dimensions (in the Sport
Coupes, for example, head room has been
upped as much as 2 inches, and there’s
more leg room, too —front and rear).
Chevy’s new trunk is something else that

obscures the fact that gasoline

During the same period gasoline
