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 Letourneau University, Kilgore College, and Harding University.

It was a great day of fellowship. I got to preach the sermon this morning. It was a pretty good sermon. I have included a brief summary of what I preached about. I wasn’t at my best, but I was as good as I could have been. We nearly had close to 260 people at the service. I was really happy to see so many of our college students who showed up.

 

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.

The Cake.
I believe they all had a good time and enjoyed the wonderful fellowship.

 

Mary Brown, our Family & Youth Minister’s wife, mother made the most delicious cake. It even looked good. The cake read, “What are you Looking for?” which is the theme for us this semester. It was a great day and I hope the students got as much out of it as I did preaching.

I get many questions about the Churches of Christ so, I have included a little overview of how one of our worship services go. I would encourage anyone who would like to join us, to come out. You can check our website at www.cscoc.com There you will be able to hear past sermons as well as check out all the things that are going on with the congregation.

 

Here is a brief summary of what my sermon I preached this morning.

Seveta and Roberto
I started and ended with Ecclesiastes 5:1-2.

 

In this age of multiculturalism, excessive tolerance, political correctness, and revisionism it is vitally important that Christians sort the truth from the "almost truth." We are always looking for something, but is it always the right thing.

We hear counterfeit gospels preached across our land every day-in the media, in schools, and even in churches. There is a desperate need for Christians to know and to understand biblical Truth because the best way to identify a counterfeit is to be intimately acquainted with the genuine article.

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 Israel.

Betty, Ann and her friend
Jesus ascended to the right hand of the Father, and He is coming back to judge every human being. That's biblical orthodoxy-and anything that denies these truths is counterfeit.

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
