We are happy that you chose to be with us. It is our prayer that you were encouraged as you joined us in praising God and studying His word. Since it is difficult to get to know someone very well during their first visit, we hope to see you again so that we can get to know you better. Ministers: Rufus Martinez Rocky Whitely Elders: Lester Gilmore Tim Hines Pete Marchbanks Deacons: Larry Adams Clay Bassham Randy Field Ashley Hull Serious Bible Study (2) I think of those Jews from the town of Berea. They welcomed Paul’s preaching of the good news and “examined the scriptures every day to see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11). Paul exhorted the Ephesian Christians to“understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:17). He also encouraged the young preacher, Timothy, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved by Him, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly explaining the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). In serious Bible study, we learn the difference between ancient and modern definitions of christ, baptism, church, presbyters, bishops, shepherds and saints. We learn who, in the New Testament, the Sadducees, the Pharisees and the scribes were. We learn who, in the Old Testament, the Rechabites, the Hittites and the Amorites were. We learn why various places, for example, Samaria, Zion and Tekoa, are important. In serious Bible study, we learn the value of various translations and the use of tools, namely Bible dictionaries and original language lexicons, to help us appreciate those translations. We learn of the value of context of a passage, whether the immediate context of the text to help us understand its meaning, or the overall context of the Scripture to discover, using a concordance or cross references, other passages that teach similar things. In serious Bible study, we learn the value of those books that provide background information, for example, of Bible lands and Bible cultures. We learn the value of commentaries, both good and bad. Ask me about what books that I would recommend for further Bible study. You may reach me by writing, Rocky Whitely, 3200 Cavitt Ave., Bryan, TX 77801, or by calling me at 979 822-4844, or by emailing me [email protected] I know. Some might think that Festus’ words apply to me, too. He said, “You are out of your mind!... Too much learning is driving you insane!” (Acts 26:24) My goal, however, is to “stand mature and [be] fully assured in everything that God wills” (Colossians 4:12). So then, bring “the books, and above all the parchments” (2 Timothy 4:13), I have more studying to do. Rocky Chosen to Serve February 1, 2015 Sunday Morning Lord’s Supper: Marcus Hernandez, Gary Hines, Jonathan Hines, Tim Hines, Ashley Hull, Jim Lancaster, Joe Ligon, Rufus Martinez Opening Prayer: Conrad Mahan Closing Prayer: Michael Myers Sunday Evening Lord’s Supper: John Barron Closing Prayer: Jim Nolen Wednesday Song Leader: John Barron Elders Corner I recently read a quote by Tim Ferriss, author of "The 4-Hour Workweek": "You're the average of the five people you associate with the most." Makes me think of 1 Cor. 15:33, "Do not be deceived: 'Bad company corrupts good morals.'” If we want to be friendly to others, have a positive outlook on life and be happy then should we associate with people with similar characteristics?
