East Main Informer, 3-1-22.pdf

  1. 1. 0………. 4 --article continued from page 1— Are we confident that our light is bright Vol. 47 March 1, 2022 Number 9 CONTENTMENT Life is filled with moments of bliss, But how many times do those moments we miss? When we were all young, we wanted to age But now that we’ve aged, we miss the first stage. We longed for the promotion and then when it came, We found ourselves stressing our newly found gain. At times thinking, if only we were given a slight raise in pay. And then when we get it our bills only raised. It seems that the goal is always out of reach, But maybe that’s because it’s the wrong goal that we seek. If the Kingdom of God and His righteousness is first. He promised to add all the blessings of worth. But part of the process of gaining the goal Is realizing the value of contentment in soul. Paul the apostle said the lesson he learned, Was with food and clothing contentment is deserved. The world has its measure of success as its goal, But physical possessions will not save our souls. Jesus has shown while He hung on the cross, That crucified man counts possessions as loss. If we learn to let go and in God have our hope, He promises contentment that will bring peace to our soul. —Barry Kennedy ELDERS Mike Childers ............. 397-6453 Dennis Hallmark......... 255-5557 Mark Hitt .................... 322-0917 Bobby Lindley ............ 260-9193 DEACONS Wade Bryan ................ 419-5552 William Harris ............ 416-8149 Ricky Lindsey............. 255-8136 Jeff Mansel.................. 871-0357 Jimmy Spearman ........ 840-8957 Michael Wilson........... 891-0891 MINISTERS Barry Kennedy....(931)787-7108 Alex Blackwelder (731)879-9196 SECRETARY Renee Childers Office.......................... 842-6116 Fax .............................. 842-7091 E-MAIL eastmaincoc38804@gmail.com WEB PAGE eastmaincoc.com SUNDAY SERVICES Worship........................9:00 a.m. Bible class..................10:15 a.m. Worship......................11:15 a.m. Singing or Devotional Last Sunday of the Month MID-WEEK SERVICES Wednesday Classes......7:00 p.m. 1606 East Main Street P.

  2. 2. --article continued from page 1-- Though it should not be so, it tends to be easy for people to “forget” God. Just think, if Israel (God’s chosen people) could do it, it only makes sense that we would guard against doing so ourselves. Each of us have countless opportunities which can distract one from thinking about God. The first step toward forgetting about God is done through forgetting His Word. Paul encouraged Timothy to take heed unto himself and the “doctrine” (1 Timothy 4:16). The Hebrew writer made clear the need to remember when he wrote, “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip” (Hebrews 2:1). Without giving “more earnest heed” we run the risk of allowing the Word to slip from our minds. Usually that unoccupied space is replaced with the cares and desires of the world. Jesus told of the person who had an unclean spirit removed but failed to fill the void left behind. The result was worse than the beginning (Luke 11:25-26). Holding fast the word of God is the ultimate defense against Satan’s forces. “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee” (Psalm 119:11; see also Matthew 4:1-10). There is never a time when we have to say to the Lord, “Forget Me Not.” On the other hand, maybe He is telling you and me “Forget ME Not!” May He always be merciful to us as we endeavor to maintain a constant remembrance of Him. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sympathy Our sympathy is extended to Donny McKay in the loss of his stepfather, Marvin Chamblee, on Feb. 17.
