DO WE REMEMBER?—Part 2
Barry Kennedy
Memories have a way of helping the wise to make the right decision.
The person who does not learn from his past is destined to repeat it.
Sometimes Christians need to stop along life's road and take a good look
back. Although our past might have been winding and steep, we can see how
God directed us by His faithfulness. The Psalmist said, “Be still, and know that
I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalm
46:10). One cannot be still and know God without seeing His unwavering
faithfulness. This begs the question, “Does God find us to be unwavering in
our faithfulness?” One of the keys to developing a life of faithfulness is our
ability to remember. We previously discussed two questions first: Do you
remember what sin is, and second, do you remember what sin does? Now
consider two more questions to help us all to focus more toward taking sin
seriously and being able to answer “Yes” when asked, “do we remember?”
Do we remember what sin costs? Here in America we are constantly
made aware of cost. The food we eat, the clothes we wear, the cars we drive,
the homes in which we live, and even maintenance to keep our things going
all come to us with a price tag. The same is true when it comes to our walk of
life. There is a price tag firmly affixed to our decisions. Moses said to the
children of Israel, “I call Heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I
have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both
thou and thy seed may live:” (Deuteronomy 30:19). They had the ability to
“choose” whom they would serve, but the wrong choice would lead to
destruction. The way of sin is not a lifestyle; it is a deathstyle (Romans 6:23).
The cost for sin is death, but the overwhelming point we need to consider is
not so much our own death but the death of Christ. When we remember that
our sins bring death to our souls it has some motivating thrust, but to
remember that our sins brought about the death of Christ, it should cut us to
the core. There has never been and never will be a greater showing of love
than the death of Jesus (John 15:13; Romans 5:8). Do we remember what our
sins cost?
How can we remember to not sin? The answer to this question is seen
in the last point. Remembering that Jesus died for you and me, while we
were yet sinners (Romans 5:8) should cause one to “think twice” before
committing any transgression (2 Corinthians 7:10). The “how” in the above
question is answered by one’s willingness to store up God’s inspired word in

“Thou shalt observe to do all that they inform thee”
(Deut. 17:10)
--article continued from page 1—
his or her heart. “Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against Thee” (Psalm 119:11).
This word reminds us of what sin is (1 John 3:4), of
what sin does (Isaiah 59:1-2), and of what sin costs
(Romans 6:23). Therefore, if we truly want to know
how to keep from sinning, we must study God’s
inspired word (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
Another way that we can remember to not sin
is with one another’s help. Christians are to be
watching out for one another. For example, consider
the Christian armor of Ephesians 6:11-17. Loins girt
about with truth, breastplate of righteousness, feet
shod with the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet
of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit all cover and
protect the front of the soldier, but who is watching
our backs? Of course, one could say God and that
would be true, but God often uses His soldiers (you
and I) to watch out for one another (Romans 15:1;
Galatians 6:1-2). Are we remembering to not sin? Are
we remembering to help one another to not sin?
God has blessed us all with memory, some
more than others. May God help us all to take the
necessary time to prepare ourselves to stand faithful in
the face of the enemy. Jesus showed us how when He
said, “It is written” (Matthew 4:4, 7, 10). The
question is “do you remember?”

Wednesday Bible Classes
On Wednesday, September 23,
the elders have decided to resume
Wednesday night Bible classes at
7:00 p.m. at the East Main
building. We will NOT meet in
the auditorium as a whole but go
directly to our Bible classes so as not to congregate in
the hallways. Barry Kennedy will teach an adult class
in the auditorium. The young married class taught by
Mark Hitt will meet in Room 10 (downstairs). Roger
Sanderson & Tim Davis will teach the college class in
their regular room upstairs. Alex Blackwelder will
teach the 7th
-12th
grades in the big classroom upstairs.
Several ladies (Missy Nichols, Ashley Davis, Kristie
Webb, Renee Childers) will teach the 4-year-olds
through 6th
grade in the multipurpose room. Sherry
Kingsley will teach the 3-year-olds and under in the
nursery. Everyone will be dismissed to the parking lot
following class. We are asking everyone school age
and up to wear a mask, if possible. We are looking
forward to being able to meet again in Wednesday for
Bible class.
Senior Youth
The senior youth
(grades 7-12) are
invited to the building
this Saturday, Sept. 19
at 5:00 p.m. to wel-
come our upcoming 7th
graders, pizza, and other
activities. Please let Alex know if you are coming!
Thank You Notes
Thank you, my East Main brothers & sisters, for
your calls, cards, prayers and for the beautiful flower
arrangement after the death of my brother, Charlie
Estes. The longest of lives seems short when it has
ended. With gratitude,

East Main Church of Christ,
Thank you so much for the cards, calls, texts, food
and especially your prayers while I have been sick.
Susan Reed
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dear family and friends,
Marlon & I want to thank all of you for your many
calls, prayers, cards & concerns in these past several
weeks. Truly these have been some of the hardest I
have ever been through. However, almost every day
or two when the mail came, there were encouraging
words and beautiful cards from so many of you. I still
have pain from time to time, but it is improving. I
thank each of you for your concern and especially
your prayers. To each of you who has dealt with pain,
my prayers are for you that you will have relief.
Many times, we cannot understand what others
experience. If you are sick or suffering in any way,
may you get the relief you pray for. My thoughts are
for you to know that our God is ever by your side.
May you receive the peace and joy of God as you
serve Him each day, with love and continued care for
you all. In Christian love,

East main informer, 9 15-20

  • 1. 4 Vol. 45 September 15, 2020 Number 36 DO WE REMEMBER?—Part 2 Barry Kennedy Memories have a way of helping the wise to make the right decision. The person who does not learn from his past is destined to repeat it. Sometimes Christians need to stop along life's road and take a good look back. Although our past might have been winding and steep, we can see how God directed us by His faithfulness. The Psalmist said, “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalm 46:10). One cannot be still and know God without seeing His unwavering faithfulness. This begs the question, “Does God find us to be unwavering in our faithfulness?” One of the keys to developing a life of faithfulness is our ability to remember. We previously discussed two questions first: Do you remember what sin is, and second, do you remember what sin does? Now consider two more questions to help us all to focus more toward taking sin seriously and being able to answer “Yes” when asked, “do we remember?” Do we remember what sin costs? Here in America we are constantly made aware of cost. The food we eat, the clothes we wear, the cars we drive, the homes in which we live, and even maintenance to keep our things going all come to us with a price tag. The same is true when it comes to our walk of life. There is a price tag firmly affixed to our decisions. Moses said to the children of Israel, “I call Heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” (Deuteronomy 30:19). They had the ability to “choose” whom they would serve, but the wrong choice would lead to destruction. The way of sin is not a lifestyle; it is a deathstyle (Romans 6:23). The cost for sin is death, but the overwhelming point we need to consider is not so much our own death but the death of Christ. When we remember that our sins bring death to our souls it has some motivating thrust, but to remember that our sins brought about the death of Christ, it should cut us to the core. There has never been and never will be a greater showing of love than the death of Jesus (John 15:13; Romans 5:8). Do we remember what our sins cost? How can we remember to not sin? The answer to this question is seen in the last point. Remembering that Jesus died for you and me, while we were yet sinners (Romans 5:8) should cause one to “think twice” before committing any transgression (2 Corinthians 7:10). The “how” in the above question is answered by one’s willingness to store up God’s inspired word in --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 ...

  • 2. --article continued from page 1— his or her heart. “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee” (Psalm 119:11). This word reminds us of what sin is (1 John 3:4), of what sin does (Isaiah 59:1-2), and of what sin costs (Romans 6:23). Therefore, if we truly want to know how to keep from sinning, we must study God’s inspired word (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Another way that we can remember to not sin is with one another’s help. Christians are to be watching out for one another. For example, consider the Christian armor of Ephesians 6:11-17. Loins girt about with truth, breastplate of righteousness, feet shod with the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit all cover and protect the front of the soldier, but who is watching our backs? Of course, one could say God and that would be true, but God often uses His soldiers (you and I) to watch out for one another (Romans 15:1; Galatians 6:1-2). Are we remembering to not sin? Are we remembering to help one another to not sin? God has blessed us all with memory, some more than others. May God help us all to take the necessary time to prepare ourselves to stand faithful in the face of the enemy. Jesus showed us how when He said, “It is written” (Matthew 4:4, 7, 10). The question is “do you remember?” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Wednesday Bible Classes On Wednesday, September 23, the elders have decided to resume Wednesday night Bible classes at 7:00 p.m. at the East Main building. We will NOT meet in the auditorium as a whole but go directly to our Bible classes so as not to congregate in the hallways. Barry Kennedy will teach an adult class in the auditorium. The young married class taught by Mark Hitt will meet in Room 10 (downstairs). Roger Sanderson & Tim Davis will teach the college class in their regular room upstairs. Alex Blackwelder will teach the 7th -12th grades in the big classroom upstairs. Several ladies (Missy Nichols, Ashley Davis, Kristie Webb, Renee Childers) will teach the 4-year-olds through 6th grade in the multipurpose room. Sherry Kingsley will teach the 3-year-olds and under in the nursery. Everyone will be dismissed to the parking lot following class. We are asking everyone school age and up to wear a mask, if possible. We are looking forward to being able to meet again in Wednesday for Bible class. Senior Youth The senior youth (grades 7-12) are invited to the building this Saturday, Sept. 19 at 5:00 p.m. to wel- come our upcoming 7th graders, pizza, and other activities. Please let Alex know if you are coming! Thank You Notes Thank you, my East Main brothers & sisters, for your calls, cards, prayers and for the beautiful flower arrangement after the death of my brother, Charlie Estes. The longest of lives seems short when it has ended. With gratitude, Brenda Spearman ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ East Main Church of Christ, Thank you so much for the cards, calls, texts, food and especially your prayers while I have been sick. Susan Reed ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dear family and friends, Marlon & I want to thank all of you for your many calls, prayers, cards & concerns in these past several weeks. Truly these have been some of the hardest I have ever been through. However, almost every day or two when the mail came, there were encouraging words and beautiful cards from so many of you. I still have pain from time to time, but it is improving. I thank each of you for your concern and especially your prayers. To each of you who has dealt with pain, my prayers are for you that you will have relief. Many times, we cannot understand what others experience. If you are sick or suffering in any way, may you get the relief you pray for. My thoughts are for you to know that our God is ever by your side. May you receive the peace and joy of God as you serve Him each day, with love and continued care for you all.
