Lostby Brett Petrillo
It doesn't really make sense, but it's so very true. When we are lost, we tend to run in an attempt to find our way again. Instead, all we do is become more lost with every passing second.
The same is true spiritually. When we get lost in sin, fo some reason we lose all sense of direction and run deeper into our own faults. Many before us have done this very same thing. Consider those who looked to escape from God when they were lost.
Adam and Eve hid themselves after sinning (Genesis 3:8). Cain tried to talk his way out after killing his brother (Genesis 4). Achan hid the treasures he had stolen that rightly belonged to God (Joshua 7). Saul blamed his sin on peer pressure, among other things (1 Samuel 15). David went to great lengths to cover up his sin with Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11). Jonah literally ran from the Lord (Jonah 1). Certainly, many other examples could be mentioned.
We all can stray and become lost (Romans 3:23). Without a doubt, the worst thing we could do is to run faster. The solution isn't complicated. We need to stop, think about where we are, and find help getting us back on the right road (Matthew 7:13-14).
So many are running around lost. Are you to be found? Stop running. We're here to help show you to the right road.
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." ~ Romans 6:23 (ESV)
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).
