John W. Gines Obituary
John W. Gines Obituary

OBITUARY OF J. W. GINES


We are taught in the work of God that man was created a little lower than the angels. Whatever this may mean to us, we are sure that the Marvelous Cabinet consisting of reason, Will, and Conscience, are God-given powers and by these man is distinguished from the beasts sof the field with capacity for higher rational life and Spiritual insight.

To this truth John Wesley Gines was awakened years ago by the birth of a moral personality.

In Bible terms we wold say he was "born again" or truly converted to Jesus, and later saw the consistency of the teaching of God's word relation to the doctrine of heart holiness, and our ransom powers being fully dedicated to God.

This was the experience that gave this good man a never dying zeal and fervor for the salvation of men and the prosperity of the cause of Christ.

It was the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that pressed the matter of a place of worship upon the heart of Bro. Gines while living near Taswell Crawford County Indiana.

There was no finance and not many people interested but despite the prevailing indifference and unfavorable surroundings - his faith touoched the God of Miracles and the church was erected. Grand revivals followed and many who were converted to Christunder the labors of John Gines have long since gone to their heavenly reward.

It was almost 26 years ago since Bro. Gines located in Daviess County North of Washington. Again the revival fire was kindled in his heart and plans were set in operation for an ingathering of Souls.

As a result of this inspiration more than one hundred and fifty people were converted to Christ in the old theater building on West VanTrees St. and a Free Methodist Church organized with forty-four Charter members.

Later followed the erection of the building, we worship in today. Bro. Gines has served the Church through all the reverses and problems that are common to those who carry responsibility in religious activities. Many times has he been elected as delegate to the Annual Conference of his Church. Also served as Local Preacher, Class Leader and Chairman of various committees. Yet with an humble attitude and congenial Spirit he won the hearts and love of many people in and outside of Church circles.

We would not forget while we mention the many virtues of this good man that a consecrated devoted mother in Israel shared her life in all the efforts which were crowned with success. Ida M. Burget to whom he was married November 24, 1887. Never failed to play the part of a faithful wife and an affectionate mother. For 53 years they have journeyed together and reared a family of six children. One having died at an early age.

Living are Rolla H. Gines, Washington, Indiana; Ray I. Gines, Bloomington, Indiana; Oral N. Gines, Washington, Indiana; Isis M. Hoss, Washington, Indiana; Dorothy B.Riggs, Bloomington, Indiana; and Herald M.Gines, Washington, Indiana beside 23 grand children and 3 great grand children.

Well done thou good and faithful servant, are the words of our dear Lord. Your toils have won for you a crown, up here is your reward.

What glorious things you shall behold. Eye hath not seen nor hath ear heard. But mansions fair so we are told, are for the saints so says the Lord.
