Are we confident that our light is bright

VICTORY AND DEFEAT
Barry Kennedy
Victory and defeat are facts of life. It has been said that for every
winner there must be a loser. How one “deals” with victory or loss can
change his or her status from a winner to a loser and vice versa.
Undoubtedly, we all have heard of, or seen the evidence of a sore loser.
A sore loser is in essence a double loser. Not only did this person lose
the competition, but he also lost his character as well. Having said that,
there are also those who can be classified as sore winners. These are the
gloaters, proud, and arrogant people. They may win the competition,
but let’s face it, no one would ever want to compete with them again!
They, like the sore losers, lose their character.
God’s people are to be of the utmost character. Character is
defined as: “the set of qualities that make somebody or something
distinctive, especially somebody's qualities of mind and feeling”
(Encarta). Jesus said, “ye are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14).
Jesus was pointing out the fact that His people are to help point the way
to Heaven (cf. Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15, 16). The apostle Paul
encouraged the young preacher Timothy to “. . . be thou an example of
the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in
purity” (1 Timothy 4:12). Clearly, every facet of the Christian’s life is to
be an example of Christ to the world. After all, the word “Christian”
carries the idea of being “Christ-Like.”
The Lord’s church in the first century was very well known
throughout the world. “Praising God, and having favor with all the
people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be
saved” (Acts 2:47). What a compliment this was to those newly made
disciples of Jesus Christ. Even if the world does not accept the doctrine
of Christ, Christians are to be considerate of others. “If it be possible, as
much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men” (Romans 12:18). One
might say that this was a victory. On the other hand, some said, “These
that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;” (Acts

17:6b). The church met much opposition then
and the Holy Spirit affirms that it always will.
“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus
shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12).
Does this mean that Satan is victorious, and
Christians are defeated? Of course not, as long
as we maintain our character.
Victory and defeat will always be a part
of this life. However, the Christian has an
advantage in the “game of life.” “For
whatsoever is born of God overcometh the
world: and this is the victory that overcometh
the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4). What is
our status in the game of life? Are we headed
for victory (i.e., Heaven) or defeat (i.e., Hell)?
The choice is ours (Deuteronomy 30:15;
Matthew 7:13, 14; Revelation 22:17).

Neglected Opportunities
Felix’s problem was sin; thus, his greatest need
was the forgiveness of sin. Yet he neglected the
remedy. Notice the many opportunities Felix was
given to be saved, yet he neglected them all.
Felix had to neglect all the following
opportunities to remain lost:
Felix was in the right place at the right time
(24:24a). The right place is here, and the right time
is now (2 Corinthians 6:2). The gospel invitation is
always open; it must not be neglected.
Felix heard the apostle Paul preach (24:24b).
Paul was a powerful preacher; however, the power
is not in the man; it is in the message—the gospel
message (Romans 1:16). Felix heard the glorious
gospel of Jesus Christ from a dedicated servant of
the Lord!
Felix heard a sermon adapted specifically to him
(24:25). Paul preached about three of the most
important things in the world: righteousness, self-
control, and coming judgment. Paul preached
exactly what Felix and Drucilla needed to hear.
Felix had an emotional response to the gospel
(24:25). Change is, to a certain degree, emotional;
however, emotion is too unbalanced to use as a
spiritual foundation. Faith is the rock upon which
salvation is built. The rock is Jesus (cf. Matthew
16:13-19; 1 Corinthians 3:11).
Felix had a second chance (24:26). Jonah (3:1),
Simon (Acts 8:20-24) and David (2 Samuel 12:1-
13) were given opportunities to change and get right
in God’s sight. Felix called for Paul often, giving
him many opportunities to change; however, there
is no indication that he ever took advantage of the
wonderful gospel opportunities.
Felix neglected wonderful opportunities to be
saved; he neglected them to remain lost. Let that
never be said of us! “How shall we escape if we
neglect so great a salvation?” (Hebrews 2:3).

EMYG News
When a child is hurt, most grownups are too,
It hurts most of us when they are blue.
We seem to have a special place deep down
inside
That really goes out to them when they’ve been
hurt and cried.
God is our Father through thin and through
thick
But sometimes we wonder if he cares when
we’re sick.
Sometimes we wonder if he’s even aware
That our life has become burdened with this
huge load of care.
We pray and we pray and we believe that he
hears
And then we say, “Father, don’t you see all my
tears?
Why do I deserve to suffer like this?
Haven’t I been good? Don’t I deserve bliss?”
Yes, God knows what happens to us every
single day,
But beyond knowing he loves us in an
unfathomable way.
For us, his children, he wants only good,
But lives don’t always go as he wishes they
would.
Life will definitely bring you good times and
bad,
When you are hurting your Father is sad.
Don’t look for answers that aren’t there to be
found,
Trust God completely, you’ll be safe and be
sound.

East main informer, 1 18-22

  • 1. 0………. 4 --article continued from page 1— Are we confident that our light is bright Vol. 47 January 18, 2022 Number 3 VICTORY AND DEFEAT Barry Kennedy Victory and defeat are facts of life. It has been said that for every winner there must be a loser. How one “deals” with victory or loss can change his or her status from a winner to a loser and vice versa. Undoubtedly, we all have heard of, or seen the evidence of a sore loser. A sore loser is in essence a double loser. Not only did this person lose the competition, but he also lost his character as well. Having said that, there are also those who can be classified as sore winners. These are the gloaters, proud, and arrogant people. They may win the competition, but let’s face it, no one would ever want to compete with them again! They, like the sore losers, lose their character. God’s people are to be of the utmost character. Character is defined as: “the set of qualities that make somebody or something distinctive, especially somebody's qualities of mind and feeling” (Encarta). Jesus said, “ye are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14). Jesus was pointing out the fact that His people are to help point the way to Heaven (cf. Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15, 16). The apostle Paul encouraged the young preacher Timothy to “. . . be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12). Clearly, every facet of the Christian’s life is to be an example of Christ to the world. After all, the word “Christian” carries the idea of being “Christ-Like.” The Lord’s church in the first century was very well known throughout the world. “Praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved” (Acts 2:47). What a compliment this was to those newly made disciples of Jesus Christ. Even if the world does not accept the doctrine of Christ, Christians are to be considerate of others. “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men” (Romans 12:18). One might say that this was a victory. On the other hand, some said, “These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;” (Acts --article continued page 2-- 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. --article continued from page 1— 17:6b). The church met much opposition then and the Holy Spirit affirms that it always will. “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy 3:12). Does this mean that Satan is victorious, and Christians are defeated? Of course not, as long as we maintain our character. Victory and defeat will always be a part of this life. However, the Christian has an advantage in the “game of life.” “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4). What is our status in the game of life? Are we headed for victory (i.e., Heaven) or defeat (i.e., Hell)? The choice is ours (Deuteronomy 30:15; Matthew 7:13, 14; Revelation 22:17). ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Gospel Meeting A Gospel Meeting will be held at the Verona congregation January 21-23 with Jeffery King speaking Friday and Saturday at 6:30 pm and Sunday at 9:00, 10:00 and 11:00 am. Friends & Family Day The Amory congregation is hosting a Friends and Family Day on Sunday, Jan. 30 with Chuck Morris speaking. Worship at 9:30 am and 1:30 pm. Bible class at 10:45 am. A fellowship meal will be held at noon. Thank You Note East Main Brethren, Thank you so much for the beautiful wreath for Rhonda. Thank you for your love, prayers, support and comforting words. We gratefully appreciate your kind and generous expressions of sympathy during this difficult time. In Christian love, Jason, Clint & Cass Kelly, and family Neglected Opportunities Felix’s problem was sin; thus, his greatest need was the forgiveness of sin. Yet he neglected the remedy. Notice the many opportunities Felix was given to be saved, yet he neglected them all. Felix had to neglect all the following opportunities to remain lost: Felix was in the right place at the right time (24:24a). The right place is here, and the right time is now (2 Corinthians 6:2). The gospel invitation is always open; it must not be neglected. Felix heard the apostle Paul preach (24:24b). Paul was a powerful preacher; however, the power is not in the man; it is in the message—the gospel message (Romans 1:16). Felix heard the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ from a dedicated servant of the Lord! Felix heard a sermon adapted specifically to him (24:25). Paul preached about three of the most important things in the world: righteousness, self- control, and coming judgment. Paul preached exactly what Felix and Drucilla needed to hear. Felix had an emotional response to the gospel (24:25). Change is, to a certain degree, emotional; however, emotion is too unbalanced to use as a spiritual foundation. Faith is the rock upon which salvation is built. The rock is Jesus (cf. Matthew 16:13-19; 1 Corinthians 3:11). Felix had a second chance (24:26). Jonah (3:1), Simon (Acts 8:20-24) and David (2 Samuel 12:1- 13) were given opportunities to change and get right in God’s sight. Felix called for Paul often, giving him many opportunities to change; however, there is no indication that he ever took advantage of the wonderful gospel opportunities. Felix neglected wonderful opportunities to be saved; he neglected them to remain lost. Let that never be said of us! “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?” (Hebrews 2:3). –Mark N. Posey --via House to House Heart to Heart (Archive 6844)

EMYG News When a child is hurt, most grownups are too, It hurts most of us when they are blue. We seem to have a special place deep down inside That really goes out to them when they’ve been hurt and cried. God is our Father through thin and through thick But sometimes we wonder if he cares when we’re sick. Sometimes we wonder if he’s even aware That our life has become burdened with this huge load of care. We pray and we pray and we believe that he hears And then we say, “Father, don’t you see all my tears? Why do I deserve to suffer like this? Haven’t I been good? Don’t I deserve bliss?” Yes, God knows what happens to us every single day, But beyond knowing he loves us in an unfathomable way. For us, his children, he wants only good, But lives don’t always go as he wishes they would. Life will definitely bring you good times and bad, When you are hurting your Father is sad. Don’t look for answers that aren’t there to be found, Trust God completely, you’ll be safe and be sound. –Author Unknown ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ --We will be having in the Multipurpose Room KIA (Kids In Action) this Sunday, Jan. 23 for anyone from 6th grade down.
