Are You One Who Is Still Not Saved
Robert Walker
Jeremiah 8:22

If you like trees I would recommend a little seed that weighs lesson that 300 thousands of one ounce. You can plan it and wait about a 1000 years when it grows up it would be 270 feet high, 40 feet at the base and you could get enough lumber out of it to build 10 five room houses.

Trees can be a very interesting subjects but there is a tree I want to consider in our message this morning. The tree that the Lord Jesus Christ died upon. Look at the question Jeremiah asked in verse 22.

There is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin sick soul.

Don't ever feel discouraged, for Jesus is your friend;

And if you lack for knowledge, He'll never refuse to lend.

There is a balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole;

There is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin sick soul.

There is a chorus of an old Methodist Hymn that says there is a Balm in Gilead

To make the wounded whole;

There is a Balm in Gilead

To heal the sin-sick soul.
