Paul emphasized to the Corinthian congregation the topic of utmost certainty. Paul was a very educated man and had access to great wisdom and insight (Acts 22:3). Paul was a tentmaker by trade, and we know that he was successful in his work efforts. His missionary journeys would have been costly endeavors, yet he trav- elled thousands of miles over land and sea. Why? For what reason did Paul put himself in harms way? Why did he endure 8 beatings almost to death, one stoning, and three shipwrecks? “On frequent journeys, in danger from rivers, danger from robbers, danger from (his) own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the wilderness, danger at sea, danger from false brothers; 27 in toil and hardship, through many a sleep- less night, in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure” (2 Cor. 11:24- 27). Paul took his right and authority as an apostle of the Lord and submitted himself to Christ. Paul decided to represent to the Corinthian congregation the topic of utmost certainty. “And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. 2 For I decided to know nothing among you except Je- sus Christ and him crucified” (1 Cor. 1:1, 2). In our lives, we all have our own understandings and perspectives. We must share this same unifying resolve. May we be ever more certain of the unity we share in Christ. May we also choose to know nothing among ourselves except Christ and Him crucified. The only cause for Certainty.

The Gap Between Knowing and Doing – Part 4 A third reason why some people know but fail to do what they know is self-deception. The verse we mentioned last week illustrates this. James said, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves” (Js. 1:22). This was a problem that many in Israel had. They would listen to God’s message but they would not obey. God told His prophet Ezekiel, “And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not” (Ezek. 33:32). Self-deception is lying to self; rationalizing about sin and personal responsibility. So Israel would deceive themselves into believing that every- thing was alright between them and God and any sin was not their fault but the fault of someone else. Adam blamed Eve and indirectly God and Eve blamed the serpent. “And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. 13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat” (Gen. 3:12, 13). Some are deceived into thinking that they are the exception to the rule. Those disobedient to the gospel will be lost but God will make an exception with me. Again, looking into God’s word we read, “Who will render to every man according to his deeds” (Rom. 2:6, 11). And again Paul tells us, “For there is no respect of persons with God” (Rom. 2:11). Lukewarm Christians disgust God, but I’m one lukewarm Christian that doesn’t. Rev. 3:16 – “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Some believe that while most unfaithful Chris- tians will be lost in hell, God will make an exception with them. However, in James. 5:19, 20 we are told, “Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the er- ror of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” -to be continued Area Wide Singing FEBRUARY 2 7 pm—9 pm Deerfoot Church of Christ Please bring finger foods: brownies, cookies, sandwiches, hotdogs, chip & dips, little smokies, chili, or soup, drinks.

Thank You Deerfoot Church of Christ, This is a feeble attempt to express my love to the congregation that was part of me for about 40 years and how circumstances have caused me to move away. First off, I recall learning at the feet of great Bible teachers like Jerry Jenkins, Tim Shoemaker, Ron Cobb, Brown Rogers, and many others. I recall the baptisms following a study and what a joyous occasion it was. I recall the many handshakes and hugs we received each time we met; the local door knockings, the Rook games going on adult campaigns, and Belizean campaigns. I recall the many fellowships meals we shared together, like CIA’s second Tuesday lunch, Wednesday nights, VBS homemade ice cream, Edification team meals Sundays start of a gos- pel meeting, etc. I recall the many visits we made, hospitals, Monday night, funerals, etc. I recall when we cut the grass, dug a ditch for a fire hydrant water line, put up a couple of high block walls, remodeled and repainted the building, and put trash cans in the auditorium to catch the rain leaks, etc. I recall how the congregation responded to requests for finan- cial assistance for victims of Hurricanes, Tor- nados, from other sources, plus Mission Sun- day, Purpose Sunday, etc. I recall how a brother told me how to increase my giving to the Lord each year. I recall how a teenage boy, practicing a L2L speech, told me how to quit smoking cigarettes. And I will never forget the encouragement I have received these last few weeks from my brothers and sisters telling me I‘m doing the right thing with June and how we will be missed. I will thank each of you personally when we meet in heaven. God Bless the Deerfoot Church of Christ, In Christ, Ed Cooper LADS TO LEADERS Lads to Leaders song leading workshop will be from 9:15-9:45 on each 2nd and 4th Sunday from January to March (1st workshop - 1/14).
