The Churches Of Christ Rom 16:16

By Ben Bailey

The New Testament teaches that the church of Christ began in Jerusalem on theDay of Pentecost (Feast of Weeks; Sunday) after Jesus’ resurrection (around A.D.30: Matthew 16:18-19; Luke 24:46-47; Acts 2:1, 5, 47; Leviticus 23:15-16). About three thousand lost souls who gladly received the gospel message, repented and were baptized in the name of Jesus so that their sins would be remitted/forgiven (Acts 2:36-41, 47). 

As these precious souls were being cleansed by the blood of Jesus in baptism, the Lord was delivering them from the power of darkness and adding them to the church of Christ, the kingdom of God’s dear Son (Acts 2:38, 41, 47; 22:16; Revelation 1:5; Colossians 1:13; 1 Corinthians 12:13). 

Because of their obedience to the gospel message, they also received (the gift of) the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38-39; 5:32). These new converts (and all other subsequent, faithful Christians) spent Sunday steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine (teaching) and fellowship (sharing worship and salvation in common), in the breaking of bread (the Lord’s Supper) and in prayers (Acts 2:42; 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:20, 23-29; Jude 1:3; 1 John 1:5-7). 

Other passages indicate that faithful Christians also assembled together every Sunday and worshiped God by singing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs and giving as they had prospered (Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 16:1-2; Hebrews 10:24-26). 

In conclusion, we have learned that the church of Christ 

(1) began in the city of Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost (Sunday) nearly two thousand years ago;

 (2) Those who gladly received the gospel message, repented of their sins and were baptized so that their sins would be remitted and they would be saved;

 (3) those who repented and were baptized received (the gift of) the Holy Spirit; 

(4) the Lord added to the church of Christ daily those who were being saved;

 (5) the saved church worshiped God together on Sunday, engaging in teaching, fellowship, the Lord’s Supper, prayers, singing and giving. Would you like to learn more about the church of Christ?

There Is Evil In Our Land

By Dan Jenkins


If America would understand the importance of studying the Old Testament, our world would drastically change and head in a new direction. Why do we have that old covenant when we live under the new one? Listen to what God says. “For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope” (Rom. 15:4). We are a sick nation because we have not paid attention to those things written before.

There is evil in our land as there was evil in the land of Noah. When godly people became intertwined with the ungodly, our holy God responded. “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart” (Gen. 6:5-6). At one time, we at least said that we wanted to be “one nation under God,” but now we have become a nation which longs to be “one nation out from under God.” How much longer will it be before God is sorry that He ever made America?

What things were written before? Read those verses from Genesis again and understand they were for our learning!

How do these words from Micah describe our land? “Woe to those who devise iniquity and work out evil on their beds! At morning light they practice it” (Micah 2:1). They cunningly devise their plans and then carry them out as soon as the morning light comes. How good are they at it? “They do evil … successfully with both hands” (Micah 7:3). We are truly a land filled with ambidextrous people!

Once a nation starts down the road of evil it becomes more and more corrupt. Paul described it this way, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Tim. 3:13). Jeremiah’s words are so graphic: “And like their bow they have bent their tongues for lies. For they proceed from evil to evil, and they do not know Me” (Jer. 9:3).

We hear that the economy is booming, and while that may be true, there is something far more important. Our land has become a place where “evil is booming.” Will we never learn? Is there no hope? The hope for us is found in the opening words of this article. Those things written before were written for our learning!

How do we respond to all of this evil? What values must we place in our homes? It’s very simple. We must not follow the multitude to do evil (Ex. 23:2). We must not be overcome with evil but overcome evil with good (Rom. 12:21).

TIME TO IMPROVE

By Tom Moore



“For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I la-bored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me” (1 Cor. 15:9-10).


Deep within us there seems to be a need to make progress. We appear to have a basic, built-in drive to get to higher and higher levels of quality — and we are un-happiest when our lives have come to a standstill. The word “frustrated” means
that we have stopped, we have been blocked in our effort to move toward something that’s important to us. The things that frustrate us are often obstacles of our own making, but even so, frustrated people are unhappy people. When we are
not getting better and doing better, we don’t like being a human being.

From the standpoint of spiritual realities, sin is obviously the root of the problem. It is the fundamental explanation for both our failure to grow as we need to and the feeling of frustration that inevitably follows. When all has been said and done, it is God our Creator to-ward whom we must move and in whom we must grow. Apart from a right relationship with Him, no progress we can make will mean any-thing in the end. “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it” (Psa. 127:1).

Yet even when we acknowledge the primary role God must play in our progress, we some-times still don’t move ahead. We fail to see the need on our part to take the spiritual steps we could take and to make the progress that is available to us each day. We can’t, in this life, be perfect. But we can make progress. We can improve. We can make each day better than the last. We can make the conscious decision to upgrade something about our character and conduct every day. We can reach forward. We can determine that the grace God has shown us will not have been in vain.

One way to understand the corruption by which sin destroys the human spirit is to think of it as a “stagnation.” When we cease to move to-ward God, we stagnate. When we are not improving and making progress, we decay into a motionless death. To be delivered from this stagnation means that we are given God’s help to get up and get going again — toward Him.

Remember, “Holiness is not the end of progress, but deliverance from standing still

Don’t Lose Your Ticket

By Tom Moore

The story is told about Albert Einstein, the brilliant physicist of Princeton University in the early 20th century. Einstein was traveling from Princeton on a train, and when the conductor came down the aisle to punch the passengers' tickets, Einstein couldn't find his. He looked in his vest pocket, he looked in his pants pocket, he looked in his briefcase, but there was no ticket. The conductor was gracious; "Not to worry, Dr. Einstein, I know who you are, we all know who you are, and I'm sure you bought a ticket."
As the conductor moved down the aisle, he looked back and noticed Einstein on his hands and knees, searching under the seat for his ticket. The conductor returned to Einstein; "Dr. Einstein, Dr. Einstein, don't worry. I know who you are. You don't need a ticket, I'm sure you bought one." Einstein arose and said "Young man, I too know who I am; what I don't know is where I am going."

Do you know where you are going eternally? Friends, the word of God is our ticket? The "ticket" gives us the details on how to reach heaven? The Apostle Paul declared, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek" (Rom. 1:16). The Gospel, my friends, contains "facts" to be believed, "commands" to be obeyed, "blessings" to be enjoyed, and "warnings" we must heed. "Wherefore putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness, receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls" (Jam. 1:21).

Study the word of God prayerfully, carefully, and obediently. Don't lose your ticket!

What We Need
By Tom Moore

In his bestselling book called, "Into Thin Air," Jon Krakauer relates the
hazards that plagued some climbers as they attempted to reach the
summit of Mount Everest. Andy Harris, one of the expedition leaders
stayed at the peak too long and on his descent, he became in dire
need of oxygen.

Harris radioed the base camp and told them about his predicament.
He mentioned that he had come across a cache of oxygen canisters
left by the other climbers but they were all empty. The climbers who
already passed the canisters on their own descent knew they were not
empty, but full. They pleaded with him on the radio to make use of
them but it was to no avail. Harris was starved for oxygen but he
continued to argue that the canisters were empty. The problem was
that the lack of what he needed had so disoriented his mind that
though he was surrounded by something that would give him life, he
continued to complain of its absence.

Many today are complaining about not being able to live a fulfilling
life, and that something is missing in their life. Many complain while
the answer is right before them. The apostle Peter declared,
"According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that
pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that
hath called us to glory and virtue" (2 Pet. 1:3). Friends, God's word is
the oxygen that will give us spiritual life – with our spiritual lives
in order, life has true meaning, and it is a life worth living. Jesus said, "I
am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more
abundantly" (Jn. 10:10). What the world needs is right before us in the
New Testament. Friends, partake of its life giving flow.


Think About It!
