It is the religion of our Lord Jesus Christ. With it, if you had nothing else, you could be happy. Without it, though you had everything else, you could not be happy." The Christian religion is the only thing that really matters in human life. He who has not found peace with God through faith in Jesus Christ is of all men most miserable. matter what may be the size of his bank account and how high his rung on the social ladder. And by the same token, he who has found free and full forgiveness for all his sins through faith in Christ's work of redemption has found the supreme assurance and satisfaction of life—no matter how little he may have of this life's goods and no matter what side of the tracks he may live on. As William Penn once said; "The true end of life is to know the life that never ends." That is the life that is lived by faith in Jesus Christ. Have YOU found that life? We will feel privileged to help you.— ST, JOHN LUTHERAN CHURCH. no no matter _ sä væ ,: B» B F. Hutton ÄÄ« ß again proved by the excellent picture drawn by Abner Dean m LIFE, January 15. 1948.
