Poplar Log Church of
Christ-Notes from the Preacher
There is a lot of sickness going around this time of the year, some
people blame it on the weather, some just say it is because people don't take
care of themselves. I really don't know what causes the sickness like we have
right now but I do know on the news a couple of nights ago they said Kentucky
was in an epidemic for flu. There are several schools that have and are
letting out because of this. I know I preach that you shouldn't let small things
keep you from the services of the Lord, but just let me say this. If you have
the symptoms of the flu, don't come to the services of the Church, you may be
contagious and if you are you could spread it and make others sick. Now
some people will read this and automatically say "Well the preacher said not to
come to the services if you aren't feeling well." You know if you are sick
or not, and you know if you should come to the services or not, so don't use
that as an excuse. All it takes is just a little common since.
There are some among us who seem to have more problems that do others. Let me
just say this: the man or woman who doesn't have any problems at all has not
been born yet. Marriage problems, school problems, money problems, problems at
work, and just thinking about them can ruin your day. But from my prospective
the number one problem I see is SIN that little three letter word that has
almost vanished from our vocabulary, is still real and it is a problem non the
less. You see the bible says when we break God's laws we SIN and that is a
problem whether we admit it or not. But when you look closely, this SIN
can most of the time be linked to our problems, work, play, marriage, money.
Sometimes we let these things lead us in the wrong direction, and they cause us
to sin. The Bible says for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
Rom 3:23 and later on it says that the wages of sin is death.
Rom 6:23 but it also says the gift of God
is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.... So there you have it
........Problem..... and solution!
