Signs of the Times

[Rev. J. W. McComas, as quoted in the Evening News, Glendale, California]

Before his death and resurrection Christ [Jesus] gave power to his disciples; for we read that "when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease." Luke says that Jesus "gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick." We know what organized power can do in the hands of men who possess it, and most of us seem to have more confidence in this power than we have in the power of God. If we had as much confidence in the power given to us of God as we have in the power exercised by men of great wealth, most of our church problems would be solved.
