  2. 2. --article continued from page 1-- against God in letter to the church in Corinth? Not in the least! Paul is simply stating that having God as your companion is far more needed than that of any earthly relationship (Matthew 10:32-39). The Hebrew writer (Largely believed to be Paul) emphasized how that “marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled” (Hebrews 13:4). One must not compromise self-esteem to ever win a spouse. It should be the case that our spouse, or prospective spouse, encourages and elevates our self-esteem. That is the true companionship that we need and that is the true companionship that God offers to all who follow Him (John 10:10). Finally, we all need FORGIVENESS. We all find ourselves having weak moments. Temptations are everywhere and we need not forget that those temptations that torture us the most, stem from our own lusts that “war in our members” (James 4:1). James said that we are tempted when we are drawn away of our own lusts and enticed (James 1:14). The fact that we have our own lusts and that we often give in to those lusts, lets each one of us know the real need we have to be forgiven. Jesus came to make that forgiveness available to all who will obey Him (Hebrews 5:8, 9). We need salvation (the forgiveness of sin) because our sins separate us from the companionship that we had with the Almighty. We need forgiveness of sin because without it we cannot have the true self-esteem found only in the body of Christ. John wrote it this way, “But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1John 1:7). We should see in this verse how all of our needs are met. What do you need? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Family Fellowship Don’t forget that our first “Family Fellowship” will be held this Sunday, May 26 from 8:15-8:45 a.m. in the multipurpose room before worship services. Everyone in the congregation is invited to come and enjoy a brief period of Christian fellowship before we begin our worship services. Donuts, fruit, juice & coffee will be provided. Come and draw closer to your church family! Sympathy Our sympathy is extended to Mark Hitt & Lori Sheffield in the loss of their grandmother, Sarah Grubbs, on May 16. Funeral services were held May 18 in New Albany. Ladies’ Day The North Hillcrest congregation in Aberdeen will host a Ladies’ Day this Saturday, May 25 with Cathy Turner & Darlene Fears speaking on “Living Godly in an Ungodly World” (Titus 2:11-12). Registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. Thank You Notes To our church family at East Main Church of Christ, Thank you from the bottom of the Laney family’s heart for the beautiful plant that you sent to us in the passing of our loved one, Jody Laney. We feel blessed to have always had a loving church family in our lives. We will be forever grateful how thoughtful you have been thru the years. You are genuine! You are wonderful! Love in Christ, The Laneys ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dear faithful Ladies, Thank you so much for a wonderful Ladies’ Day. I enjoyed it so much. The speaker, prayers, songs, food and friendship was great. Thank Patsy for the pineapple cake. It and all the food were good. God bless you all, and keep you safe, healthy, and happy.
