The Miracle Of Time
, In all human experience and
progress, . no .1 man has y ever
solved the puzzle of time. What
is ; it or is it any thing. ; . Ein
stein believed there was no log
ical ' plan for the human mea
surement of time.
We say, for example, that we
spent an hour doing this-and-sro,
y but what is an hour other than
a : man-made measurement of
seconds ticked off on a clock?
Likewise a day and a 'month are
man-made measurements of what
we call time. But in .the scheme
of nature and life is there any
delineation of February.- where
it ends, and where March , begins?-
There is . only a cycle of life
n ; nature, no : man-marie meas
ures a are valid.. And Einstein
believed that a cycle of We is
the, key measurement and that
when cycles of life can be- pro
longed, time might be made to
stand still. , i- . , . , , '
Time is the one thing we al
ways have iess- of tomorrow.
We. cannot increase our supply
of; it; as we can money 'and ma
terial things. We cannot buy
more of it. We only have a lim
ited amount of time in which
to live our lives to, .the best of
So the lesson of thrf must be:
Spend your time carefully and
wisely. Each day you have so
many hours to spend. Do not
waste them or fail to learn, or
accomplish something. And time
will fool you in the end when
its supply is running out. So do
inot postpone until the last the
good work you will do. Time
passes faster as age increases.

first night with lights. Only three out of 100 rural
North Carolina homes had electricity then,' so you
may have a similar memory. , ' (
Remember the long years of waiting .', . and
the refusals of the existing power companies. And
then the decision of rural people to organize and
do the job themselves.
Today, nearly 98 out 100 rural homes have
electricity. They do because of a basic American
freedom: The freedom to organize to provide our
selves with a service on a nonprofit basis. wk -

it. Our rural electric cooperatives believe in both
freedoms. ' "''''?

; ' In this lessson , we consider
Peter's confession ' and examine
our own beliefs about Christ.
This passage is the shortest
in our study of Mark. But it is
extremely important. The, con
cession of Peter and of the dis
ciples that Jesus was the Christ
brought his previous ministry to
a climax' and constituted the
point of transition into the final
events of his death and Resur
rection. , ,
This account of Peter's con
fession is . the pivotal point' in
Mark's Gospel. All that - has
happened,, before culminates in
this experience. Jesus is - the
Messiah, and now the ' disciples
can affirm this faith . But notice
that Jesus waited a long time
' to ask them: "Who do you say
j; that I am?" It was only after
; a sharing of life after the dis
i ciples have been with Jesus, lis-
tened to him: teach, watched him
' work among the people, ' and
been in his company that Jesus
asked this question. ; And it was
only as a result of his total im
pact upon the people that they
were able to answer.- , ; 1
. It is always this way in the
Christian life. The first require
ment is not that individuals be
able to quote creeds or say the
correct words. The first in vita-,
tion is that of a person to per
sons. It is an invitation to share
, life,, to live in cominunity with
place;' ''then bne can answer' the
r question of 'whoi Jesus, is. j There
are o neaven-snaiienng signs .f
oniy, a , person. . jno tremor ot
the earthonly 1 a' ' Life among
men.) -But in .meeting this per
son and in sharing this Life one
, comes to know who he is. ,- He
theithrist w '
. This confession is the turning
noint in. the Gospel account. Je
sus has set his face toward Je-
rusalenv" He1 begins to indicate
that suffering is a part of . his
: messianic role. The final events
I of his life are coming fast upon
i him, but in obedience he em
braces his task. ; ". ', ; i f
Upon the basis of their con
fession, Jesus leads the disciples
a step further. Immediately af
ter t Peter speaks, Jesus invites
them , to share with him in his
suffering. And what did Jesus
mean by "taking a cross?"
To "carry a cross" means obed
ience. ' Jesus' perseverance was
due to his loyalty to the will of
God. We, too, are to be obedi
enteven in the face of a cross,
and through a cross.
v To "carry a cross' means hu
mility to set oneself at the dis
posal of God and to walk in his
way, v To. want what God wants
and to want it God's way is the
humility that is implied in cross
bearing. To "carry a cross" is to ex
press love and concern for oth
ers. There is redemption in the
cross-bearing of Jesus. To "car
ry a cross" means to carry with
us what we find at Jesus' cross;
willingness to be a servant,
obedience, humility, and concern
for others. No wonder so few
followed Jesus! ' And even the
disciples were not fully equal
to the challenge until later.
v Simon Peter had spoken for
the disciple group and said Je
sus was the Christ. But they
had yet to learn that messiah
ship did not mean prestige. They
had yet to understand that Jesus
was a "suffering servant". But
the disciples- still followed. Un
certain about future events, they
were growing in trust in their
Lord. Not yet free of self-ambition,
they loved this One more
than themselves. . And as a re
suit, they were willing to go
even to Jerusalem and to dare
the threat of the authorities.
This call is still being issued.
Jesus invites us into his ' com
pany. He invites his present-day
disciples to share all of his life;
He invites those who follow to
"carry a cross". He asks that
they grow in ' his likeness -and
become fellow servants with him.
Jesus does not simply set an
er ample. He asks that we share
a life. He does not simply ex
press an ideal way of life, he
presents himself . and invites us
to come to him, and' then : go
with him. ' ! -

- V Robert Edward, Junior that's his name. But
'soon it will be Bobby. And after a while he and I ,
will probably be known as Big Bob and Little Bob.
Funny how you start looking ahead. When X
came, out of the shop today I happened to notice,
- our sign the big one with my, name on it that ,
hangs over the door. And I thought to myself, h
maybe someday we'll add : & SON . ; . i
But Marge and I know better than that! You
; can't plan your son's life for him. He's got to make
: hiR own decisions, choose his own rnad. " ' '
? One thing we have decided, for him, though.
i That he's going to have all the moral and spiritual
training a man needs to make right decisions and i
follow a straight road.
This God expects of us of all parents. And .
. our church is ready to do its vital part. v v
