The Power of Autosuggestion

It is generally recognized that worry interferes with the normal functioning of the various organs of the body. Every cell is influenced by the condition of the mind. Many of the diseases afflicting mankind may have their origin wholly in the mind. All diseases are in­fluenced by mental conditions.

It is not to our credit that we are generally regarded as legalists, attempting to aid in our salvation by our own works, in other words, not saved solely by grace. Unfortunately, we are not without blame in this misconception.

Visiting an Interest

We are in grave danger of making two mistakes in the matter of personal work. One is the danger of pressing one too far to­ward a decision who is not yet ready for it, and the other is failure in not giving enough help to one who is ready for the kingdom.

These trips have been primarily for older M.V. members and the young married couples of our church. About seventy have usually gone.
