8 Kimball Tri-County NewS--Thursday, Nov. 7, 1991 Good News This clergy column is sponsored by the Kimball Ministerial Association By Jerry Albert Kimball Church of Christ My family and I have had the good fortune to be able to do a considerable amount of traveling. Some has been for church conventions and camps while some has just been vaca- tion times. We have been to various parts of Canada, to Mexico, myself to the Domini- can Republic, our son to Ger- many. We like to travel but it is always nice to come back home again to family, church and community. God called upon Abraham to take a journey to a distant land that was unknown to him. He was to leave behind family and friends and not return. Unlike our family, traveling a long distance, Abraham had no map to guide him. He had no specific point of arrival in mind. GOd said "you go and leave the guiding and destination to Me". The Scriptures tell us that Abraham stepped out in faith and followed God's command. He believed in GOd enough to know that if God said it, it would happen. He trusted God enough to believe he would be taken care of and he would be shown hisdestination once he arrived. God showed Abraham His ability to handle even the im- possible tasks if Abraham would just have faith in Him. A child was born to him and Sarah in their old age, way beyond normal physical abilities. Later, God tested Abraham by asking him to physically sacrifice this son on an altar. What a test Of faith in God[ When submitting to God, another sacrifice was provided in place of the son. Abraham is described as one who pleased God. Hebrews 11:6 says it is impossible to please God without this kind of faith. Today we are being put to the test in many different ways. It may be through trials and troubles, it may be God's call to us for ministry in some way in our own community. He may have a specific task in mind for each of us if we would be will- ing to follow His leading. Are we pleasing God with our lives today? Is our conduct, attitude, words and activities that which would please God? II People with diabetes are two to six times more likely to suf- fer from heart disease and stroke.

We will all be glad when deer hunting starts this week- end. Maybe it will eliminate a few of them from crossing the highways in front of us. Almost everyone in the neighborhood has had a deer" experience lately. , Our UMD student reported that Duluth received over 3 feet of snow last weekend.
