~~~~~~~ THOUGHTS:

The problem lies not in the question, "What is the meaning of life?" The problem is not finding Love as the answer. - Debbie Skelly

A direct and impressive way to exercise transforming faith in Christ is to read the wonderful prophecy of Isaiah as Henry Moorhouse did. The evangelist was preparing a sermon at the home of a friend when a child came into the room and said, “Mr. Moorhouse, I want to be a Christian.”

“Well, you may be, for it is very easy.” He then asked the girl to read the fourth and fifth verses of the fifty-third chapter of Isaiah, making the pronouns “we” and “our” personal.

So she read the verses this way: “Surely He hath borne my griefs, and carried my sorrows, yet I did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for my transgressions, He was bruised for my iniquities; the chastisement of my peace was upon Him, and with His stripes. . .“ At this point the girl stopped and her eyes filled with tears.

“Read on,” said the evangelist.

The girl continued, “. . . I am healed.”

“It is as easy as that,” said Moorhouse.

Every longing heart, every anxious mind, troubled by the burning question, “Where shall I spend eternity?” may settle the question once and for all by accepting Jesus.

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

A mystery man arrested for breaking into the same house three times in Wales is baffling the authorities.

Police and immigration officials have no idea of the man's name, age, nationality - or what language he speaks.

Magistrates at Llanelli were told he had broken into the same house, near Ammanford, three times, washed himself, cooked food, and stole a sewing kit.

The man, who appeared to be in his 30s with dark receding hair and olive skin, was remanded in custody as no plea could be taken.

Laura Carthew, prosecuting, said: "A map of the world has been offered to the defendant with no response."

She also said they presented him with flags from all the countries in the world, but this met with a similar response.

He has briefly spoken once in a language thought to be Amharic, but when a translator was called they said they did not understand him and had no clue to the dialect he was speaking.

The man's solicitor Mike Reed said in his 30 years' experience he had never come across a similar situation.

He said that in a previous hearing, the court heard how writing in a book apparently discarded by the man had been identified as belonging to a "small tribe at the bottom of the Atlas mountains" in Morocco.
