  AT OUR HOUSE                    

 Will priorities be established in
  your children when…

        *You are early for their ballgame,
          but late for worship?
        *You check on their homework regularly,   
          but never check on their Bible class lessons?
        *You won’t let them miss school even though they don’t want to go, but  
           let them miss church worship services?
        *You won’t let them stay up late on school nights, but let them stay up
           late on Saturday night.
        *You will serve as room mother at their school or volunteer at school,
           but will not help with classes, activities, programs which involve
           spiritual matters?
        *You attend open house at their school, but do not visit their class room
           of Bible school, or even know where their class meets?
        *You support, attend, or even participate in their sports activities
           (baseball, softball, basketball, volleyball, etc.) but regularly miss
           activities involving the church?
        *You never (almost never) miss meeting with the civic or social club of
           which you are a member, but frequently miss worship services?
        *You go to work even though you do not feel like it, but stay home on
           Sunday in the same condition?

“Suppose,” said I, that you should see
A small boy tumble from a tree;
How would you tell that tale to me?”

“Why, dad,” said he, “I’d simply say,
I saw a fellow hurt today,
And two men carried him away.”

“How many injured would there be,” I asked?
“Just one, of course,” said he,
“The boy who tumbled from the tree.”

“No, no,” I answered him,
“That fall which hurt the lad brought pain to all,
Who knew and loved that youngster small.”

“His mother wept, his father sighed,
His brothers and sisters cried,
And all his friends were hurt inside.”

“Remember this your whole life through;
Whatever may cause hurt to you
Must hurt us all who love you too.”

“You cannot live your life alone;
We suffer with your slightest groan
And make your pain and grief our own.”

“If you should do one shameful thing,
You would not bear alone the sting;
We’d spend our years in suffering.”

“How many hurt?” We cannot state.
There never falls a blow of fate
But countless people feel its weight.”

                                            GOD’S SIMPLE PLAN TO SAVE MAN                            


                                                 Hear God's Word- Romans 10:17

                                                         Believe- Hebrews 11:6

                                                            Repent- Acts 17:30

                                                          Confess- Acts 8:36-37

                                                         Be Baptized- Acts 2:38

Live Faithfully- Hebrews 5:9


                  WHAT IS MY FOOD?

“My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work”
(John 4:34).

1. Spiritual birth is part of God’s will (John 1:1,2).

2. Doing the will of God brings satisfaction (John 7: 1,7; Acts 13:22).

3. The will of God provides for everlasting life (John 6:40).

4. The will of God includes our resurrection (John 5:21; 25-28; 14:1-3).

5. The will of God includes heaven (John 17:24).

6. The will of God includes service on earth (John 21:21-22).
