East main informer, 12 15-20

  1. 1. 4 Vol. 45 December 15, 2020 Number 49 THE BLESSINGS OF GIVING What a blessing life can be when other’s welfare we perceive. When we all learn to put ourselves behind, And develop an attitude that’s good and kind, The Lord has promised to bless us all in time. Many may find it quite difficult to try, When the world says that the good will only fall behind. But will we listen to the lies in the world? Or listen to the words that come from our Lord? We do not know of the situation perceived, Just that the Lord said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” So, knowing the blessings that come from God’s hand, Each one step up and make his or her stand. Let each learn to give and not just to receive, But with the attitude of others to please. God will be glorified, and His love will increase, When all of His servants make selfishness cease. So, have we been longing for this season of giving, With a life that is filled with more sending than receiving? May God help us all not just in this season, To always exemplify the blessings of giving. —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 Early worship...............8:30 a.m. Bible class................9:30 a.m. Main worship.............10:00 a.m. Bible class.............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. THE CHRISTIAN LIFE Charles Box The goal of every Christian must be to live a righteous, sober and godly life (Titus 2:11- 12). One becomes a Christian by obeying from the heart the gospel of Christ. "But God be thanked, that; ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteous- ness" (Romans 6:17-18). The gospel is the story of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Those who obey the gospel (a) Hear God's word, (Romans 10:11-18), (b) Believe in Christ, (John 20:30-31), (c) Repent of sins, (Luke 13:3), (d) Confess faith in Christ, (Matthew 10:32) and (e) Submit to baptism in water (Acts 22:16). Following baptism is the Christian Life. The Christian life involves living by the spirit. Christians must live a clean and godly life. Living by the Spirit means living a good life (Romans 8:13). The Christian life involves learning. It is impossible to be faithful in Christian Living without a study of God's word. Through study Christians gain God's approval (2 Timothy 2:15). The Christian life involves loving. The Christian life will involve pure and sincere love. It would be impossible to separate Christian Living from sincere love (1 Peter 1:22). The Christian life involves leaving. The old life must be left behind as one becomes new in Christ. The Christian leaves the old to become humble, loving, kind, teachable and obedient in spirit (2 Corinthians 5:17). The Christian life involves looking. The Christian is ever looking for the appearing of the Lord, Jesus Christ (Titus 2:13). "Come Lord Jesus." As a Christian you must make your calling and election sure through Christian growth (2 Peter 1:5-9). If you are living, learning, loving, leaving and looking you will be prepared for eternity. "For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 1:11). If you are a Christian LIVE a faithful Christian life (Revelation 2:10). Sympathy Our sympathy is extended to Wesley Bass in the loss of his niece, Tina Richardson, suddenly on Dec. 8. Funeral services were held Dec. 11 at McBride Funeral Home in Ripley. Also, our condolences to the family of Jay Buse who passed away suddenly on Dec. 10. Funeral services were held Dec. 13 at Holland-Harris Funeral Home in Tupelo. Jay was the cousin of Suzanne Long and the nephew of Gail Geno. Community Outreach Program The Community Outreach Program would like to thank the elders, deacons and every member at East Main for the outpouring of this year’s Christmas angels. Thank You Notes Dear Church Family, We are extremely grateful for all your expressions of love and concern for us while we were sick. It is bad enough when one family member gets sick, but when the whole family, including the in-laws, get down it is really tough. Your prayers and God’s mercy made us well again and for these we are truly thankful. Continue to keep us in your prayers, especially Bethany’s in- laws who are still in the hospital in Texas. Sincerely, Wade & Karen Bryan John Duke stationed in Gulfport, MS Caleb Williams stationed in Quantico, VA Rob Cross & family stationed in South Korea Ty Nichols stationed in Germany
