College Day in Kilgore
Each year, the members of the Chandler Street Church of Christ invite in and celebrate college students in the area. This year was a great year. There were about 25 college students from
We served the students a really good home cooked meal. I had the privilege of cooking the main part of the meal. Everyone said that it was pretty good. They say you should taste everything you cook and everything you serve, the irony is, I do not like chicken and that is what I cooked. It seemed to be tender and tasty. Our good friend William Curry, who works at Dominos, had the foresight along with the Carrols, to bring pizza. The kids loved it.
Each of our students were given a nice gift bag full of goodies including a clock, a silver plated bookmark, candy, a book and some other useful gifts.

Biblical Truth compels people from "every tribe and language and people and nation" (Revelation 5:9) to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ-that Jesus alone is the way, the Truth, and the life, and that no one comes to the Father but by Him: John 14:6.
The true Gospel acknowledges that Jesus is God of Very God who existed with the Father in heaven before His incarnation. He died for the sin of all those who believe in Him and surrender to His authority. Jesus rose from the dead and appeared before hundreds of people in
Our call as followers of Christ is to love our enemies. Scripture tells us that people will be offended when we live and preach the Gospel. Jesus hung on the cross for preaching the Gospel, and we can expect no greater favor than He received. He warned us that the Gospel would divide families and nations so we must never give in to the temptation to be silent or soft about the Truth. Knowing biblical Truth and living like it matters is imperative. When you come into the presence of God, open His Word and ask Him to show you His Truth. He is faith
