EldersDownFront 8:00AMDarnellSelf 10:30AMSkipMcCurry 5:00PMDougScruggs The Greatest Treasure One of my favorite pastimes is hiking through the woods without a trail. When I was a boy of around 8 and 9, I do not remember a day when I was not in the woods. For a time, we lived in my dad’s home town of Haleyville, Alabama, in the Free state of Winston County. My best friend and I were homeschooled, so our families were often together working on our school work. Once the “home” work was completed, we headed for the hills. My best friend lived on a piece of land that bordered the Sipsey Wilderness of the Bankhead National Forest. We often waded through offshoots of the Sipsey river in search of arrowheads and crawdads. While climbing outcroppings on a natural rock face, we found a pretty substantial waterfall. We found small caves in the rock where we made forts, and our imaginations again went as wild as we felt. we were Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn on our childhood adventures. On that preserved piece of earth, the greatest treasure I found was my God. “ For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse’ (Romans 1:20). The more I study creation and the scriptures, I find God. It may be because of this childhood experience, but my favorite pas- sage in scripture is, “And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day” (Genesis 3:8a). I have walked amongst the trees of God’s garden in the cool of the day. I have heard the leaves rustle in the wind and mountain streams ebb and flow around the rocks. I almost taste the air as I imagine what it would have been like to walk with God. Yet the second part to that passage is devastating and puts an abrupt pause to the blissful picture. “And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden” (Genesis 3:8). In the forest, there is no place to hide ourselves from God. To think that we can is foolish. In fact, Romans 1:20 (quoted above) is stated in the context of those who strive to hide from God like their original mother and fa- ther. “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them” (Romans 1:19-20). To try to suppress truth is to attempt to hide from the greatest treasure ever given. Jesus embodies Truth. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father ex- cept through me” (John 14:6).Through Jesus, we can again walk with God. The blissful picture is un- paused and the ability to walk with God has resumed. Will you choose to take hold of the hand of the greatest treasure? A Note From the Harp

Among the Greeks and the Romans it was a word that describes the man who was “careful and correct in per- forming his duties both to gods and men.” This may have been used by Peter in contrast to those false teachers who failed in the proper behavior toward God and their fellow man. Brother Guy N. Woods pointed out that in adding godli- ness to patience, that “patience can be approved only when it results in submission to the burdens of life for the sake of pleasing the Father. The desire to be godlike is the motive from which all our actions should originate and without which there can be no acceptable service rendered to God.” Godliness is a virtue that we need in our lives but the problem is that sometimes we find individuals who manifest a “godliness” that is not real. Paul told Timothy that in the last perilous times would come where there would be those who have a “form of godliness” but who deny its power (II Tim. 3:5). It is possible that one may give the appearance of godliness but absolutely refuses the idea that it should change their lives. William Barclay quotes Lord Melbourne as saying, “Things have come to a pretty pass when religion is allowed to invade the sphere of private life.” Yet that is exactly what Christianity ought to do. The truly godly person is one who has changed for the better. True godliness is profitable both for the life and the life to come. Paul also told Timothy “For bodily exer- cise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come” (I Tim. 4:8). Physical exercise aids one in having better physical health in this life but godliness will profit one not only here in this life but in the life to come. Later is this same letter Paul reminded Timothy, “Now godliness with contentment is great gain” (I Tim. 6:6). In his commentary on I Timothy Don- ald Guthrie said that “godliness will only be true gain when independent of circumstances,” and brother David Lipscomb echoed this thought saying, “It is great gain to learn to be content without riches or earthly treasures.” When we have this godliness so that we behave properly toward God and our fellow man we can truly be content and that is great gain indeed. -to be continued CIA– 2019 January 15, 22, 29 –Class 9:30 am –11 am Area Wide Singing February 1, 2019 7 PM Deerfoot Church of Christ Please invite your friends and neighbors.
