fHinffwiiroiwiMimnflitflnnnti WEEKLY imnmniinmiiiiiiitnniiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiniiir LESSON ly DR. 2, f. Abiding Ifl Christ Jn. 15:1-12. This lesson is based on the allegory of the vine and its branches. Jesus said, "I am the true vine, and my Father IS the husbandman." ! Christ is the feal vine. He is the true vine, as truth is opposed to pretense and counterfeit. His is the fruitful plant. The Father is the cultivator. Me is the worker of the soil. God not only owns, He also has a care for the vine and all its branches. He cuts away any branch that docs not bear fruit, and He repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more. In order to bear fruit we must remain in union with Christ by faith and do all we do in religion by virtue of that union. The Duty of Abiding in Christ V. 4a. Jesus said, "Abide in me, and I in you." Christ not only wants people to abide in Him, He also expects them to do so. His abiding in us is dependent upon our desire to abide in Him. His invitation to abide in Him is imperative. It is urgent. If we remain in union with Him, He has promised to remain in union with us. The communion between Christ and believ- vers never fails on His side. We must abide in Christ's merit as our righteousness and plea and it in us as our support and comfort. It is the great concern of all of Christ's disciples constantly to keep up a dependence upon Him and communion with Him, habitual- Jy to adhere to Him, and actually to derive support from Him. The Necessity of Our Abiding in Christ Race for Governor's Chair Entangled in National Politics Vs. 4b-S Jesus said, "As As bfaftch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 1 am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me. and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing." So necessary is it to our happiness and comfort that we be fruitful, that the best argument to cause us to abide in Christ is, that otherwise we cannot be fruitful. Abiding in Christ is essential to our doing much good. He who is constant in the exercise of faith in Christ and love to Him, who lives upon His promises, and is led by His Spirit, bears abundant fruit. Such an individual is very serviceable to God's glory. A life of faith in the Son of God is incomparably the best life a man can live in thi< world. Abiding in Christ is necessary to our doing any good. This is the root and spring of all good. We cannot do anything cut off from union vrith Christ. We are absolutely dependent upon Jesus for all the actions of the spiritual life. The Consequences of Not Abiding in Christ V. 6 Christ conveyed this concept in these words, "If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned." This is a description of the fearful state of the unbeliever. A person who has not accepted Christ as Savior has never become a part of Him. He is not a branch of the true vine. Anyone who is not in union with Christ by faith is subject to punishment by Sy OAftttt JONfeS Associated Press Staff Writer Texas' elbow-to-elbow race for the governor's chair finally gained full force the past week, then immediately got entangled in President Johnson's politics. By the end of the week it appeared some candidates considered Bobby Kennedy a personal opponent. With absentee voting only three weeks away, it was expected the crowded field of 10 Democratic and three Republican candidates for governor would try to peak their campaigns within the next month. Lt. Gov. Preston Smith, 55, Lubbock businessman finishing iis third term as second top state executive, began his cam- jaigning before Christmas and has been at it steadily since then. The past week Smith fwinted out he had already visited more than 360 cities and towns and therefore, Smith said, he knows more about Texans' problems than any other candidate. Eugene Locke, 49, Dallas lawyer and former deputy ambassador to South Vietnam, got his statewide campaign under way about March 1, using unusual amounts of newspaper, radio, television and billboard advertising for an early campaign. Locke frankly told voters he needed to get his name known quickly throughout the state. Locke quickly jumped to Johnson's defense against Kennedy and Sen. Eugene McCarthy, D-Minn., and challenged other would-be goverors to take a stand. "Kennedy's actions can only be divisive," Locke said. "Is this what some of these men who want to be governor want?" Don Yarborough, 42, Houston lawyer and twice an unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate, crisscrossed the state sketching his plans. Yarborough, the only avowed liberal In the field, said he would establish regional offices eternal separation from Him, and to the torture of continual suffering in hell. The Blessed Privilege Of Abiding in Christ Vs. 7-8 Union with Christ is a great privilege and blessing. Jesus said, "If ye abide in me, anc my words abide in you, ye shal ask what ye will, and it shal! be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear must fruit; so shall ye be my disciples." If we have Christ we shall want nothing that is good for us. If we have union with Christ, and His word is in us we shall not ask anything bui that which is proper. Furthermore we shall have such an interest in God's favor and Christ's mediation that we shal have an answer to our prayers By continuously bearing abundant fruit and in this way proving ourselves to be true disciples of Christ, we glorify the Father. 6f the fovefftof! office, fight public during the tftek called 'of lowef auto insurance fates, for higher teacher salaries, create a human resources de-more vocational and technical veloptnent program, strengthen education, traffic relief for air and water pollution controls,cities, state park development, and s pe fid more money tobettef air and watef pollution match federal fund! available control and increased efforts to Busy Season Seen i For Casa Manana ; persons \vere killed and one ift- Casa MaMfta has afmouficed ; graduate who will soon star . jured shortly before midnight its fifst group of stars signed season of summer for needy old folks. attract industry and tourists.

Believing that the learning process does not have to be confined to a classroom in an ivy-covered building, HPC has established within its Douglas MacArthur Academy of Freedom a fully accredited college course that will take the student to the place where the story of America has been and is being unfolded, she noted. Mrs. Schroeder will serve as the tour director for the course, to be held June 5-30. Mrs. Schroeder, who served as assistant tour director under Col. Russell 0. Fudge for the trip last year, likes to refer to the American Shrines Traveling Seminar as "education in motion." "But", she says, "this is not just another tour. In the first place, it is cross-disciplinary education. It carries a course number in the division of social sciences, because its scope is not limited to any traditional college discipline. This course is for the well-rounded studenl who seeks to become a complete citizen knowledgeable in the facets of contemporary American life." Planning for the course un dertakes to intergrate histori cal and sociological sites, anc to include sights and observa tions pertaining to economics psychology and politica science. But music, drama art, literature, theology, engin eering, business, nature, arch eology, and other academic classifications also have im portant places in the schedule, Mrs, Schroeder said prepar atory lectures will be present ed prior to the visit to all the stops, whether they be battlefields or the New York Stock Exchange. Night stops for the trip wil be Monroe, La., Montgomery Ala., Macon, Ga., Greenville S.C., Durham, N.C., Norfolk Va., Williamsburg, Va., Rich mond, Va., Washington, Phila delphia, New York, Cam FLIP OUT FOR THE COLOR OF A NEW Personality Very, very groovy . . . jMyched-up flat* m vilely h*ppy colon] JViuc 'em or match em •with your bright new clothes ,.. have a fashion bash all lc c, A.
