Bulletin, 3 20-18

  1. 1. 4 Hugh Vol. 43 March 20, 2018 Number 12 A Law, Not Destroyed, But Abolished “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17). Here Jesus plainly lets us know that His coming was not to destroy the Old Testament system. He willingly lived His life under it, without sin. Instead of destroying, Jesus said He came to fulfill. Many Old Testament passages point to Christ. He came to fulfill all of them. As predicted, Jesus bruised Satan’s head (Genesis 3:15). He was that great prophet to be raised up (Deuteronomy 18:18, 19). It was our Lord who fulfilled Isaiah’s prophecy of the virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:20-23). Then there was the perfect fulfillment of that beautiful suffering servant passage in Isaiah 53. Since Jesus did not destroy the Old Testament system, does that mean that it is still binding on us today? Not at all! He abolished the Old Law at His death (Ephesians 2:13-16). Not being subject to that abolished law, which was nailed to the cross (Colossians 2:14), we are now under the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2). Please understand that if we really desire to learn things like how to become a Christian and how to worship God acceptably, we must consult the New Testament, the last will and testament of the Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

  2. 2. Before You Hit “Share” or “Like” Before you hit “share” or “like” on that post or funny story, let it simmer for a bit and consider Paul’s admonition from Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Is it true? Each and every day, hyped up fear fed articles are posted about new applications, foods, vaccines, politics, local events, the family next door. Many of them are just not so. Simple common sense should tell us that one-half of these things are not so, and discretion should eliminate the rest. If it is really that important, take the time to do some fact checking. Is it honorable? Not every noteworthy event in life needs space in our heads. Mark your space with things worthy of real honor. Is it right? Fanning the fire of rebellion towards things that are truly right tears down the very ones who need help most. Is it pure? It helps to become a little savvy with social media. Sometimes and old friend will pass along a great uplifting story, but they shared it from a Facebook group or page that either has a foul name, or commonly passes along material filled with profanity. Make a choice to check out first if the story is true, and then find a clean source to share. Not only will you help yourself, you help those who you want to encourage. Is it lovely? Your kids and grandkids are--that 14th million “share” of “people of Wal-Mart” is not. Is it of good repute? Remember your reputation. When you share that page, your character goes with it, for good or ill, they will be latched together from that point on. Do you really think those two or three good things are worth the filth one needs to swim through. Is there any excellence? Is this really what it seems to be, and does it provide the best you want those whom you care about and lead to follow. Does it raise the bar? Is it worthy of praise? Life is already full of enough sorrow. Our broken hearts desperately need things worthy of praise and rejoicing. Remember Solomon’s admonition (Prov. 4:23): “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” --author unknown Visitation Team #4 Visitation Team #4, Mike Ratliff’s team, will meet this Sunday, Mar. 25 after morning worship services in the multipurpose room. A food list is posted in the foyer beside the tract rack. Also, if you are not a part of this team, but would like to stay for lunch you may sign the list as well. 52nd Annual MSOP Lectureship The 52nd Annual Memphis School of Preaching Lectureship will be held March 25-29 on the theme “FAITH UNDER FIRE.” A flyer of scheduled speakers and session times is posted on the bulletin board across from the library. Maywood Christian Camp Retreat The youth in 7th -12th grades and college are invited to the 7th Week Retreat at Maywood Christian Camp on April 6th -8th . This retreat will bring together many who attend our regular week at camp in the summer. The theme for the weekend will be taken from 2 Corinthians 6:2: “Now is the time…” The cost to attend is $40.
