    1 Bulletin with 3 articles worth reading 

    Here’s a link to a PDF of a bulletin from a sister congregation in a neighboring county.

    The bulletin contains three articles with titles: Well-Scrubbed Individuals, Who Are Our Real Heroes, and The Tongue is Ugly….

    All three of these articles are doctrinally sound, they are very practical in nature, and to top it off they are manageable in length. So in other words, the articles hit the “bulletin-trifecta” as far as I am concerned. All of them work great for personal edification, for sharing with others, or for devotional thoughts/sermon ideas (that last one is for those of you who can use one of those every now and then).

    Hope you find these articles to be as beneficial as I did.

    Good poem about the ironies of Calvary 

    I thought it would be good to share this poem which was published in the latest Bulletin Gold.

    The poem was written by Edd Sterchi, who preaches for the church in Kentucky.

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I did:

    The Ironies of Calvary
    By Edd Sterchi

    Man of sorrows, Prince of Peace,
    Son of Joy, Man of griefs,
    Wounded healer, Rejected King,
    Earth’s disdain, Salvation’s wing.
    Friend of sinners, Friendless One,
    Men charge sin to the Holy Son,
    Innocent, yet judged with guilt,
    Had no home, but mansions built.
    The irony Christ was and gave,
    Buried, yet o’ercame the grave,
    The irony Christ makes in you,
    Buried in Him, you’ll rise anew.

    Neat Reverse Paragraph Article 

    You may have seen this before, but it was new to me and I thought it was worth passing along.

    I read it in the email bulletin sent out by the Wise church of Christ.

    AN ATHEIST’S VIEW ON LIFE

    I will live my life according to these beliefs

    God does not exist.

    It is just foolish to think

    That there is a God with a cosmic plan

    That an all-powerful God brings redemption and healing to the pain and suffering in the world

    Is a comforting thought,

    However

    It

    Is only wishful thinking.

    People can do as they please without eternal consequences.

    The idea that

    I am deserving of Hell

    Because of sin

    Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power

    “The more you have, the happier you will be.”

    Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose

    In a world with no God

    There is freedom to be who I want to be

    But with God

    Everything is fine.

    It is ridiculous to think

    I am lost and in need of saving

    A CHRISTIAN’S VIEW ON LIFE

    (reread from bottom to top)

    Interesting connection to worship and a Greek word 

    Here’s a link to a short but very good article that makes an important point about the worship we offer to the one and living God of Heaven by describing the meaning of a Greek word that had its roots in what possibly would have been a well-known character to a Hellenistic culture…or any culture today that enjoys doing a word-study on Bible words.

    Because of the content and size, the article would make a great fit in any bulletin.

    SERMONS 

    A sermon, in many churches, is just a word of encouragement relative to the daily struggles in life. It is the opinion of some that since people struggle with various things throughout the week, the last thing one wants to hear is an exhortation to shaping one’s life in accordance with godly standards. This sounds too hard, and enough negativity has already occurred for the saints, that another negative is not desired, much less will it be heard. This, I suggest, was why Israel departed from the Lord’s way many years ago. Consider Deuteronomy 28. There are 68 verses in the chapter, and only 14 can be considered positive, or encouraging. Why did the Lord put this kind of “out of balance” on His exhortations? It was a warning, but it was also a prophecy (31:29). Godly sermons are to focus on godly exhortations that have both a positive and negative quality to them. When the Lord said something about marriage and divorce, the saints are to hear what the Lord said and be warned. When the Lord said something about the promise of heaven, the saints are to hear and be encouraged. Let us preach and insist on only biblical sermons.

      Deuteronomy 28 is only the end of a sermon by Moses, that begins at Deuteronomy 26:16: In which Moses reaffirms the terms and obligations of GOD’s Covenant with Israel as they are about to enter the promised land.

      But for us, ” the law was given by Moses: grace and truth subsists through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:9-17)

      ” Therefore remember that formerly you, the Gentiles in the flesh, who are called “Uncircumcision” by the so-called “Circumcision,” which is performed in the flesh by human hands— remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without GOD in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, ” (Ephesians 2:11-14)

      ” Therefore be imitators of GOD, as beloved children; and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to GOD as a fragrant aroma. But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
      For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and GOD. ” (Ephesians 5:1-5)
