OceMionally people who are young in the Christian faith, and on other occasions people who have been Christian for a considerable time, experience a severly strenuous test of their faith in some form. When this happens, it is not uncommon to hear the question: "How can I know that I am truely converted?" The question arises because by the nature of "the confrontation" -- as the moderns say and "the testing of faith" as the elders of the faith put it -- they are thereby tempted to cast offtheir new faith and walk therein no more. Because of this they become unsure of their confession and commitment; they need some reassuring that they might continue as obedient and faithful disciples. To such a person I would suggest that he study the Gospel of St. John and remember his statement [John 20:31] "These things are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name." John 20:31 is the key verse stating plainly the purpose of the gospel. With this understanding he who has begun to waver should study intensely John&apos;s gospel for the strengthening of his Medical Auxiliary sets organizational meeting The Medical Center Auxiliary of Donley County will have an organizational meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 2 p.m. at the Lions Club Hail. New officers will be elected and the group will begin regular meetings once again. New members are sought for the organization. faith. In this gospel John had two primary purposes: 1) to show that Jesus was the long expected messiah, the Savior of the world, and 2) belief and acceptance of Hislife and teachings would bring an experience of an entirely new quality of life. However, one should not believe that at the point of conversion - when Christ has begun to make all things new in your life--that you have reached full spiritual maturity. Rather, we at that point of the Christian experience are but as "Babes in Christ" as Paul states having to be fed spiritual milk rather than the meat of faith [I Corinthians 3:1-2.] While we are yet "babes in Christ" we cannot fully accept some of the deeper mysteries of the Christian faith, wherein we must step out in faith, believing that the proclamations of the Gospel is true and trusting that the experiences of life will witness to the truthfulness of that which logic and systematic proof cannot support. We are not let alone as infants in the faith. We have the records of the ancient Hebrews as they followed the directions of God passed down by the prophets. We have the Apostles and other disciples of the New Testament Period. We have the early Church Fathers as the young, infant church grew and matured. And, we have our contemporaries who are faithfully supporting us in the faith that we might come through those spiritual "growing pains" as an infant Christian. Therefore, it is expedient that since "we...are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the Joy that was set before him endured the Cress, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." This can be done as we grow in our belief that "Jesus Is the Christ, the son of GOd." And John's gospel will help us to strongly believe in Him who loved us and gave himself for us. Grace and peace. in accordance with the national bicentennial celebration activities, Texas is co-sponsoring a delegation to visit the country of Guatemala this week on an international cultural exchange program developed under the "Festival USA" phase of the national bi-centennial celebrations. Mrs. Norma Selvidge, drama teacher at Clarendon College, is one of the representatives and left from Amarillo at 6:20 Friday morning to meet the rest of the group in Houston and then travel on to Guatemala. Others included on the trip are Texas Secretary of State Mark White and wife and Lt. Col. John Moellering, the White House representative to the bi-centenniai international affairs. The group will be met by .. official delegation at the airport and w$L,trX?ei in an entourageof antique cars to the Ritz Continental. They will be officially received by President and Mrs. Carlos Arano Osario of Guatemala, whom Mrs. Selvidge will present with a book of original poetry illustrated with pictures of children from Donley County.
