Introduction from a new member

Hello,

I'm D. I was baptized in November 2007 and became a member of the Church of Christ. I was born, raised, and still live in New Jersey. I've just graduated from college in January and started working full-time in February.

This looks like a small group, but we can still edify each other. I look forward to our discussions.

Introduction from Newbie

Howdy! I'm Viv.  I was raised in the CofC.  Some things I hold with and others I don't.  I was wondering...if I don't hold with all teachings of the CofC, may I still be included in the group?

Just in case....

Born a Texan, reside in Vermont for the past 21 years.  I'm a wife, a mom of 3 ~ all on varying points of the autism spectrum.  I'm fat, happy, sort of outspoken. *(unless I'm in a CofC congregation  of course - snicker,giggle)  AND...I LOVE to sing to and about the Lord ~ especially accapella.

Here's hoping all of you have a wonderful weekend.

Please feel free to message me to say howdy.

It seems like there isn't a lot of activity in this community, but I thought I would share this link. It's made by a Church of Christ preacher, and focuses on what the Bible says. There is also an email list you can sign up for.

Happy New Year and a Question to Get Things Going

So, with the new year upon us, we should stir things up a bit and get some conversation going in here.

Let's start with a little encouragement. What is everyone's favourite part of worship?
Personally, the Lord's supper is the focal point for me. I find it a great mix of guilt, motivation, and reminder of the unity we share as Christians. The best example of this was a service I remember attending where the congregation waited until everyone had been served and then took the emblems at the same time.

Happy Sunday everyone.

I am new to this community, and this morning was my first visit ever to a Church of Christ. I loved it! The accapella singing, the sermon, the prayer... it was beautiful. I guess you could call me a born-again Christian. I went to church when I was younger, then turned my back for a while on Jesus Christ and God, but the past few weeks have been filled with spiritual journey for me, and it feels good.

Just wanted share. :)

God`s Effect

TODAY'S DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT, God's Effect


"For we do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, of the affliction we
experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength
that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the
sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God
who raises the dead. He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will
deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again."

2 Corinthians 1:8-10

IT'S HUMAN NATURE to want "all our eggs in one basket," and "all our ducks
on a row." We are in control. We want it all to be in order. We are serious;
our plan is in mind. Our purposes are set forth. And those around us had
better "get in step" with this business of life.

IT'S A FACT OF LIFE that something often comes along to upset our "house of
cards." The "apple-cart" is turned over. The eggs break. The ducks scatter.
We're left knocked down, helpless, dismayed, with no control. Maybe it's a
death. Or divorce. Or sin. It could be financial ruin, or job upheaval. A
major illness. A birth defect. A huge, life-changing thing. Kidnapping.
Rape. What then?? Paul in this passage was burdened beyond measure, above
strength, so that he despaired even of life. He felt the sentence of death.
Why?? Why would this happen to such a dynamic and sincere servant of God??

IT'S ABOUT CAUSE AND EFFECT. Whatever the cause might be, God wants the
effect to be one thing:
THAT WE SHOULD NOT TRUST IN OURSELVES BUT IN GOD.
(The very Son of God suffered while on this earth, and used it to learn even
greater trust and obedience in His heavenly Father, Hebrews 13:10-18; 5:8.
Why shouldn't we?) This passage further points out:
1) He raises from the dead. Whatever we suffer here won't mar that, if our
trust remains intact. Our eternity is secure in Him. There is life beyond
this, Revelation 2:10.
2) He delivers. There may be a deliverance now, on this earth, as well. Paul
was delivered from that distress. Some illnesses are cured. Life-changes can
have positive results. God is able to work things together for good, Romans
8:28. May we see the good!
Proverbs 3:5 is a good motto. I have it on a poster in my laundry room.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not upon your own
understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your
paths."

TODAY...no matter what the cause, let's aim for God's effect -- greater
trust. Proverbs reminds us that trusting God brings happiness, deliverance,
security and a shield (16:20; 28:25, 26; 29:25; 30:5). We are ultimately
safe in the arms of Jesus, no matter where the storms of life may blow,
Matthew 8:24-27.

Thank you for your responses to my last entry. I read the information linked to me and I some things I really liked and some things I was a little uneasy about.

Here's my next question. The Church of Christ isn't affilated with the Iternational Church of Christ, which many consider to be a cult, is it. If it isn't, how can I tell the difference?

Thanks.
