Our Search For Spiritual Perfection: (Part Two)
by Terry Broome

The goal of Paul’s preaching was that he might present every man perfect in Christ. This is the goal of Christ Jesus as well. It is a goal too huge for human power. Our generation with its lack of moral principles needs to be converted and transformed – presented perfect in Christ. This was what Paul attempted to do by a preaching of the Gospel. It was his fervent desire for us to grow and attain to a fully developed spiritual man in Christ Jesus. Paul expresses this aim in Col. 1:28, “Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.”

You Are Making A Difference
by Terry Broome

Do you ever get the feeling that you’re just not needed? Sometimes we judge ourselves so harshly that we find no “redeeming” qualities about our lives. One thing I’ve learned in life is that things may be in the “working” directly resulting from someone’s influence/ action/ choice of direction. I don’t know of anyone who has absolutely no influence on at least someone around them. Even if you happen to be the one person who has absolutely no tie with any family member, no involvement in any work that you consider essential to mankind, even you have the ability to directly affect others by choices you make.
