Face To Face With God

Written by Alma Norman

Continued from page 1

Would you thank God For all he's given you? Or make excuses, knowing That you will reap What you're due?

What words would God speak to you or to me? Would they be words of Chastisement or praise? Oh, Lord....what would they be?

The Church Choir

Written by Joyce C. Lock

Continued from page 1

Yes,repparttar choir has many parts, not just one part. Ifrepparttar 126917 alto says, "I am not a part ofrepparttar 126918 choir because I am not a soloist," that does not make him any less a part ofrepparttar 126919 choir. And what would you think if you heard a youth say, "I am not a part ofrepparttar 126920 choir becauserepparttar 126921 choir loft is running out of room?" Would that make him any less a part ofrepparttar 126922 choir? Supposerepparttar 126923 whole choir was a director, then who would sing? Or ifrepparttar 126924 whole choir just sang, who would playrepparttar 126925 instruments? But that isn'trepparttar 126926 way God made us. He has many parts forrepparttar 126927 choir and has put each part just where He wants it. What a strange thing it would be if it only had one part! So He has made many parts, but still there is one choir.

The alto can never say torepparttar 126928 soprano, "I don't need you." The choir can never say torepparttar 126929 director, "I don't need you." And some ofrepparttar 126930 parts that seem weakest and least important are reallyrepparttar 126931 most necessary. If one part suffers, all parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, allrepparttar 126932 parts are glad.

Now here is what I'm trying to say: all of you together are one choir of Christ and each one of you is a separate and necessary part of it.

Sincerely, X Paul
