Prayer Requests

Prayer List for Sept. 2022, please share with us what we can bring to God this month. Thank you kindly.

1. @BrnAgain2000 - "There are several in my home congregation who are battling severe health issues. Please pray for them @ Crestview church of Christ. Thank y'all. 🙏"

2. @Jac_tx - "After having my hip replaced on 8/22 and spending about 11 days in a rehab Center, I'm finally home. I'll begin the long recovery from my home, which is far more more comfortable than where I was! Thank you for your prayers thru surgery and recovery."

3. @Ndemmings - "I'd like to ask for prayer on behalf of a sister, her name is Stephanie Rios and she is struggling with health and unbalanced emotional issues. I was concerned and she finally reached back out to me to explain in detail what was going on. Also I want to ask prayer for her son (11 years old) Alex who has not been consistent with his attendance in worship. I won't go into detail there, but just pray that he will seek to be faithful to God and that his desire to learn will return."

4. @Lilome - "my husband, Nick is going in for a full knee replacement surgery on Tuesday, please keep him in your prayers. Hopefully, after physical therapy he will be in less pain. Thank you."

5. @CNelson745 - "My brother in law Justin Nelson and his family just lost their house to a fire this evening. Praise God the family is okay. But they are in shock right now. Prayers are appreciated."

Sermon Sunday: John 2:13-25
EastCoast church of Christ

Sunday, Sept. 18th, 2022.

"Cleansing the Temple"
"Water Baptism, Saves?"

In 1 Peter 3:21, we see the explicit inspired words of Peter the Apostle of Jesus the Christ. Was he teaching the Christians of the 1st Century that they were saved by "water?" What exactly did Peter mean within the context? This and more we explore in this exclusive LOCALS podcast session.

POLL question: "was Peter the Apostle married?"

"Water Baptism, Saves?"

Happy Lord's Day !!

We know why they hate him, don't we?

Faithful Christians:

Our little children have seen us cry, devastated in deep sorrow; have they not wept along with us? Have we not embraced and shared tears, seeking an answer from God, guidance, hope, peace, justice, and mercy? Are we not humbled before the great I AM? Yes, yes, it is true. When we hurt, they hurt and break, yet God gracefully heals us. The selfish and cold-hearted never humble themselves to the damage they cause; sin has no remorse. But what evil workers fail to know is how stronger in love the faithful flourish, despite their hate. It's not easy being the voice who leads and ministers. It's not easy going through trial and temptation, but we learn patience, do we not? We grow in wisdom, correct? We learn to discern, becoming more fruitful for the Master.

Is it not remarkable how Paul described himself as a prisoner of Christ Jesus when the world considered him the prisoner of Rome? Did not the world consider itself victorious over Christ on the cross, only to be defeated...

Rescued - Transferred - Redeemed
The Kingdom of His beloved Son

You've fallen asleep comfy in your bed, and a fire started in your house. You wake to panic as you become aware of your surroundings, trapped by a wall of lavalike heat. You find yourself in danger, where smoke and flames threaten your life. Your neighbors were capable of seeing the threat and had since called for help. The firefighters arrive on the scene and immediately find you in your bedroom--time for a rescue. Are you yet seen in a location of satety? No, not yet. There still needs to be a transfer from the site of dakness, smoke, and fire to an area of light, fresh air, and safety. And so the firefighters guide you out of certain death into a secure location. You have now been saved, not without damage, trauma, and loss. But you've gained your life and get to learn fowared another day.

You've become idle in your sinful behavior and practices. You wake to panic as you become aware of your eternal punishment. A neighbor cares for you enough to share Jesus with you. Will you obey the gospel?

The reception of forgivness was the desired result of all who willfully gave their lives to Christ, submissive to His spiritual operation (Col. 2:11-12). Paul, the apostle, speaking to his brethren in Colossae, was accurate in reminding them of their reconciliation. And how the Word of God they had chosen to hear produced fruit for the Kingdom. The Kingdom was God's preplanned location where all found within would have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

A domain needs a King, Christ Jesus. A Kingdom has boundaries, borders, law and order, and justice. This Kingdom is of a peculiar kind, and we should all seek first legal citizenry (Mt. 6:33). His Kingdom is the body, the church (Col. 2:1,18,24). The body for it has organic members all united for the purposed function--the church fo its assembly, it's family. The way in? Being a repentant believer confessing Christ, immersed into water calling on His name, in order to receive the forgiveness of your sins, being added to His Kingdom, local assembly (i.e. "rescued, transferred, redeemed"). 

This good news of Jesus Christ "was proclaimed in all creation" to give humankind a way out of the flames and sinful consequences. And we are wise to hear its call.

Is your house on fire?

Ref. Colossians 2:13-24

Your servant,

SM
