Christ Is man's refuge, forgiving hi* Kins. Here man may find peace with God and then the peace of God by making restitution for hi* sin*. The penalty for sin unforgiven, or unrecUfied, is a guilty conscience. This was Paul's "thorn in the fle*h." Rev. Mr. Rollins impressed the fact that man can not overcome hU sin by his own strength, but only by accepting Christ. He declared that the lust of the flesh and the drinking of strong liquor ant the two chief sins today. God does not blame us for finning, but for our unwillingness to accept Christ. When forgiven by Him .we may become Justified. «.< though we had never sinned. Got! forgets the sin. Man can forgive others, but for him to forget is impossible. A warning waa given that in the time of great tribulation to came, men shall surely need Christ for their refuge. Those in Christ •ball escape the judgment Although the men will be especially recognized at Wednesday's service, all are equally welcome.
