Category Archive: Weekly Encouragement

Every week, the ministers here at the South Green church of Christ write brief articles for the congregation's weekly bulletin. The following is a copy of those articles, which have been adapted to this digital environment. Brief and to the point, these articles are designed to inspire, encourage, and challenge all. We hope and trust you will find them useful.

Marriage, God’s Plan Says:

One man & one woman-Matthew 19:4-6 says And He answered and said to them, Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, for this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become …

Mothers

We are in a time where the lines of morality are blurred. The Bible is plain when it comes to who is to marry (1 man & 1 woman), how children are to be parented (by both parents), and how children are to respond to their parents (reflecting Godly parenting). We should be thankful for …

Be Careful What you LIKE

My social media usage would be considered moderate. I enjoy seeing the pictures of my friends & keeping in touch with others. I too, share information & pictures. Social media has created another realm for us to interact. We may forget our Christian influence is seen in the virtual world as well. I’m not the …

Seeking The Truth

Seeking the truth of Scripture is paramount with each step of our walk with Christ. Knowing more about Jesus strengthens our relationship, stomps out doubt, and motivates us to love Christ. What does it say about us when we seek the truth? Acts 17:11 says These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that …

Judgement

The Bible is clear: Judgment is coming. In fact, the “eternal judgment” is one of the foundational teachings of Christianity (Heb. 6:1-2). In both the Old and New Testaments, the reality and certainty of the final judgment is revealed. For the unrighteous, those who do not know God and have not been purchased by the …

Following Jesus

Unfortunately, compromise has become commonplace & a willingness to go along just to get along has become the mindset of most religious bodies of our day. The Bible plainly teaches we are to live peaceable with all men (Romans 12:18). Christians are not to seek division, strife, & confrontation. Christians are to follow Christ & …

Regret

Since it opened in 1937, more than 2,000 people have jumped off of the Golden Gate Bridge in an attempt to commit suicide. The jumps have become so commonplace that authorities have placed signs on the bridge that read: THE CONSEQUENCES OF JUMPING FROM THIS BRIDGE ARE FATAL AND TRAGIC. They have even included a …

“Lest We Drift Away”

Man made religions grow due to entertainment worship & an acceptance of feel good philosophy. Once faithful Christians have exchanged truth for fiction. The Hebrew writer says Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away (2:1). Ignoring God’s commands will cause the once faithful to …
