The Eyes of Godby Tim Dooley
Far too often we fail to see clearly the steps we take, the path we walk, or the very nature of our own hearts. Certainly the "way of the fool is right in his own eyes" and he doesn't see himself as a fool. But God sees the fool for what he truly is. The soul-winner is wise, but few pursue this way. The one guilty of contention is he who is arrogant and many have fallen victim to this great evil. The man who loves his child punishes the son's misbehavior, but "love" has caused many parents to forsake discipline and society is plunged deeper into heartache because of it. A soft answer is better than an angry reply, but have you driven in traffic lately?
The general truths however are often scoffed at and unappreciated. "There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the ends thereof are the ways of death." The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, beholding the true righteousness and wickedness of man (Proverbs 15:3). It is therefore imperative that we see things through God's eyes and not our own. Be faithful, for the Lord is "far from the wicked: but he hears the prayer of the righteous" (Proverbs 15:29).
"Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts." ~ Proverbs 21:2
Alabama churches of Christ is a Christian website with lots of articles, the KJV Bible, a church directory and more!
Here's a brief look at what the churches of Christ believe...
- We believe that the Church should speak where the Bible speaks and remain silent where the Bible is silent.
- The Bible teaches that we must have the authority of Christ for whatever we practice or teach (Colossians 3:17).
- Worship services should be conducted strictly in accordance with the scriptural patterns set forth in the New Testament.
The New Testament makes no mention of mechanical instrumental music being used in the early church, as such we do not use them in our worship today. Instead we sing "a cappella" (singing without mechanical instruments). MUSIC IN WORSHIP by Raymond Elliott is a good article on this subject.
"Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;" (Ephesians 5:19).
