"He was wounded for our
transgressions, be was bruised for our
iniquities: the chastisement of our
peace was upon him: and with his
stripes we are healed... The Lord hath
laid on him the iniquity of us all"
(Isaiah 53:5. 6). "He was numbered
with the transgressors, and he bare the
sin of many" (verse 12).
What awfulness of suffering this
bearing of sin brought upon the Son of
God we shall never know, but it
reached the ultimate limit because of
the utter perfection of His character
As Bishop B F Westcoft says "Man
as he is cannot feel the Ml significance
of death but Christ In His sinlessness' ?
perfectly realized its awfulness In
this fact lies the immeasurable
difference between the death of C hrist.
simply as death, and that of the holiest
Upon Him who came horn God.
with mind attuned to that of His holy
Father, and with all the delicate
sensitiveness of a perfect character,
fell the terrible impact of the penalty
of sin. No wonder we read in the
Scriptures that we have been bought
"with a price"! I Corinthians 6:20)
What a price!
Only the perfect love, in the heart
of the Eternal Lover, could have
devised a plan of sal vation such as this
and endured so much to carry it
through to its consumption
Trying to bring home to the people
of Philippi the stupendous nature of
the divine sacrifice, the apostle Paul
wrote this sublimely beautiful
description: "Though lie was in the
form of God. (Jesus) did not count
equality with God a thing to be
grasped, but emptied himself, taking
the form of a servant. being bom in the
likeness of men. And being found in
human form he humbled Imnrelfiandn
became obedient unto death! even
death on the cross. There fore God has
highly exalted him and bestowed on
him the name which is above every
name, that at the name of Jesus every
knee should bow. in heaven and on
earth and under the earth, and every
tongue confess that Jesus Christ is
Lord, to the glory of God the Father"
(Philippians 2:6-11. RSV).
Thus did God seek to bridge the
gulfthat sin had made As Peter wrote
"Christ also hath once suffered for
sins, the just for the unjust, that he
might bring us toGod"(l Peter 3:18).

If you have beat reading the news
thai past few months you probably
heard thai this is suppose to be a bad
year for the flu. I just cot buck to
Oklahoma after being in Robeson
County for the holidays, and wouldn't
you know it. the flu is here! It seems
like I saw a too of kids in clinic, all
with the same symptoms, and all of it
was the flu
The flu is a virus that is common
here in the U.S. It's medical name is
influenza. It is most commonly seen
in the winter months, and affects all
ages. There is nogeographic testnctioo
to the illness The highest incidence
of disease in children usually occurs
in the 5-14 year old group Respiratory
secretions of infected children contain
large amounts of the virus, and the
infection is transmitted directly from
person to person by the airborne route
The symptomsofthe flu in school
aged children and teenager^are simi lar
to the classic flu seen in adults The
illness usually starts with sudden high
fever along with flushed face, chills,
headache and muscle aches A dry
cough with runny nose is common, as
is sore throat symptoms. Eye pain,
burning and sensitivity to light may
also be seen. In uncomplicated flu. the
fever usually lasts up to 5 days, and
most symptoms are gone in 1-2 weeks.
The flu symptoms in younger, pre
school kids are more varied The
illness looks more like a bad upper
respiratory infection (common cold)
with high fever, but is also more
commonly ?wortatcd with stomach
symptoms such as vomiting and
dianitea They also are more likely to
have swollen neck glands and ear
infection with the On vims. Muscle
aches may be present.
While most flu infections clear
without complications, some children
develop secondary infections, such as ?
ear infections, sinus infect ions and
pneumonia. Re ye syndrome is a ?
disease associated with aspirin J
ingestion in flu patients, litis disease
can be fatal, never use aspinn in a
child you think may have tne flu.
Immunization with potent
influenza vaccines is safe and
effective. However, routine
vaccination of normal children has
not been recommended but has been
reserved for patients at high risk of
complications from the virus. These
would include children with heart
disorders, lung disease (including
asthma), kidney disorders, and
metabolic diseases < such as diabetes).
The best treatment for common
flu is bedrest, lotsof fluids, and Tylenol
for fever. There is a prescription
medication your doctor may prescribe
in some instances that can decrease
the length of the illness It is wise to
try to keep contagious children away
from elderly adults or debilitated
Well, that's all on the flu for now
Take care and we'll talk again next
