" ( 1 Corinthians 5:17) Today's lesson is the fourth and last lesson in a series entitled "God Redeems His People." In the first lesson we asked, "Why would God need to redeem His people unto Himself?" and we learned the problem was sin. Mankind had sinned, which created a chasm between him and God. In the second lesson, we asked, "Why would God want to redeem mankind unto Himself," and saw the motive was God's love. In the third lesson we asked, "How would God do it," and learned that the means was through His Son Jesus, who paid the sin debt by His death on the cross, thus enabling people to be redeemed and saved. In today's lesson, the question is asked, "What happens when those who, through faith, believe that Jesus died for the sins of man?" The scriptures given for today's lesson tell us that the result is that people become "new persons." According to the Apostle Paul they become new creatures. They have been born again. When we become Christians we are new in more ways than one. First, we are different than the old person we used to be. Our wishes, our motives, our characters, our thinking, our talking, our acting ? "all things become new." Second, we are new in the sense that we are young. We are beginners and we need to grow and mature. We need to develop wisdom and character and strength and goodness ? to grow in favor with God and man and to mature in Christ. The Apostle Paul, in writing his letter to the church located in Ephesus, Greece, notes that we are called to a new life as new persons. He points out some things that we should not do and, also, some things that we should do. Read the entire chapter of Ephesians 4 to get the full picture. I urge to do so. First, he speaks of the old way of life. The Old Way Ephesians 4:17-19 Before describing our new way, Paul gives us a glimpse of the old way we have left behind. It is characterized by vanity, ignorance and wickedness. Vanity is wor thlessness or uselessness.

Stanton Harrell Carolyn H. Winslow PUGH only of themselves, and their own pleasures and desires. They lack the vision of goodness and greatness in service to God and their fellowman. Ignorance! That is what cuts the heathen off from the love of God. They do not know that God gave them life. In Ephesians 4:20-24, Paul then speaks to the transformation which takes place when one has been converted ? he is to be transformed from the old ways to the ways of God. The New Way Ephesians 4: 25 & 5:2 It is God who made us and it is He who makes us over. We cannot transform ourselves from sinners to saints. Paul outlines things that we are to do if God is to take us as new creatures and shape us into His image. He gives a whole list of things that we are not to do. These belong to the old person. The neww way is a way of truth, self-control and helpfulness, things that have lasting qualities. Paul then sums it all up in verse two of chapter five; "And walk, in love, as Christ hath also loved us. and hath given Himself for us an offering and sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor."

A simple explanation of the fact that death occurs eventually to all living things is the most wholesome for the child. It is far better than pretending that grandma has merely "gone away for awhile". Respectfully, SWINDELL FUNERAL HOME HERTFORD, N.C. 426-7311 WOODLAND Dress Shop 108 S.
