Are we confident that our light is bright
Vol. 47 June 7, 2022 Number 22
COMMUNICATING OR JUST TALKING
Barry Kennedy
“I gave him a piece of my mind!” No doubt, most of us have heard this
line before, or maybe even said it ourselves. Anyone can “speak their mind,” but
when it comes to listening, well that is a different story. Often, when one wants to
offer up a “piece of their mind,” they are angry and wanting to lash out at the one
they deem responsible for their anger. There are times when one must speak up
and make his point known, but Christians must always strive to display a proper
attitude (Ephesians 4:15).
One of the many reasons we should guard against making faulty
assumptions against one another is seen in Paul’s admonition to the brethren at
Corinth.
For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which
is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of
God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit
which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us
of God (1 Corinthians 2:11-12).
We cannot know of a certainty what one another is thinking without their
willingness to reveal it to us. Paul also addressed the attitude we should have
toward one another.
The “spirit” of man in verse eleven carries the idea of the core of man or
the seat of intellect, however, the “spirit of the world” focuses more on attitude or
disposition. The Christian’s spirit (i.e., attitude) must be brought in line with the
Spirit of God. That being said, it is very interesting to know that God has sought
to communicate with man from the very beginning of time. Not only did God
speak to Adam, He listened to him as well (Genesis 3). Communication is more
than one person talking; there must be a listener as well. The question we must
ask ourselves is, “Are we listening to the word of the Lord mixed with faith”
(James 1:22)? The Hebrew writer noted the importance of listening with faith.
“For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word
preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it”
(Hebrews 4:2).
Anyone with a voice can talk, but are they able to communicate? The
answer to this question hinges upon one having an attitude of a listener. The
inspired word of James gives us a practical guide for proper communication.
“Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak,
slow to wrath:” (James 1:19).

EMYG News
“Welcome to East Main!” I have heard
this statement so many times this week and it
has been a tremendous encouragement to me! I
want to express my gratitude towards the
congregation as this week has passed by. My
first week with the congregation has been
amazing! There is so much to be excited about
with the youth group of East Main.
Since I have been here, we have been
busy from the jump. We have held a Lock-in
for the kids as well as TGIF and a devo. When I
first got here, the youth group welcomed me
with open arms. These kids are amazing and
have shown me how amazing a youth group
can be. This group has shown me how much
they love Christ and truly desire to continue to
grow in that relationship.
This summer is going to be a great time
for the kids to be able to further their
relationship with one another as well as their
relationship with Christ. Already, I have been
able to create some relationships that will only
be able to grow as time continues. This
summer, we are going to try and learn more
about how we can walk in the ways of Christ.
To “Walk as Jesus Walked.” Proverbs 22:6:
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and
even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
-Alex Tucker
Haden Bland, Aaryn Vines, Alex Blackwelder, Xan

East Main Informer, 6-7-22.pdf

  • 1. 0………. 4 --article continued from page 1— Are we confident that our light is bright Vol. 47 June 7, 2022 Number 22 COMMUNICATING OR JUST TALKING Barry Kennedy “I gave him a piece of my mind!” No doubt, most of us have heard this line before, or maybe even said it ourselves. Anyone can “speak their mind,” but when it comes to listening, well that is a different story. Often, when one wants to offer up a “piece of their mind,” they are angry and wanting to lash out at the one they deem responsible for their anger. There are times when one must speak up and make his point known, but Christians must always strive to display a proper attitude (Ephesians 4:15). One of the many reasons we should guard against making faulty assumptions against one another is seen in Paul’s admonition to the brethren at Corinth. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God (1 Corinthians 2:11-12). We cannot know of a certainty what one another is thinking without their willingness to reveal it to us. Paul also addressed the attitude we should have toward one another. The “spirit” of man in verse eleven carries the idea of the core of man or the seat of intellect, however, the “spirit of the world” focuses more on attitude or disposition. The Christian’s spirit (i.e., attitude) must be brought in line with the Spirit of God. That being said, it is very interesting to know that God has sought to communicate with man from the very beginning of time. Not only did God speak to Adam, He listened to him as well (Genesis 3). Communication is more than one person talking; there must be a listener as well. The question we must ask ourselves is, “Are we listening to the word of the Lord mixed with faith” (James 1:22)? The Hebrew writer noted the importance of listening with faith. “For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it” (Hebrews 4:2). Anyone with a voice can talk, but are they able to communicate? The answer to this question hinges upon one having an attitude of a listener. The inspired word of James gives us a practical guide for proper communication. “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:” (James 1:19).

I want to express my gratitude towards the congregation as this week has passed by. My first week with the congregation has been amazing! There is so much to be excited about with the youth group of East Main. Since I have been here, we have been busy from the jump. We have held a Lock-in for the kids as well as TGIF and a devo. When I first got here, the youth group welcomed me with open arms. These kids are amazing and have shown me how amazing a youth group can be. This group has shown me how much they love Christ and truly desire to continue to grow in that relationship. This summer is going to be a great time for the kids to be able to further their relationship with one another as well as their relationship with Christ. Already, I have been able to create some relationships that will only be able to grow as time continues. This summer, we are going to try and learn more about how we can walk in the ways of Christ. To “Walk as Jesus Walked.” Proverbs 22:6: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and even when he is old he will not depart from it.” -Alex Tucker Haden Bland, Aaryn Vines, Alex Blackwelder, Xan Rogers
