NEW SERMONS posted 1/18. Check the Resources tab.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: In Matthew 6:7, Jesus says “And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.” Many people are nervous about praying or think that they do not pray well. Such an idea is much like those who think they do not sing well. God does not require one to be a golden throated warbler. He also does not require us to follow some formatted prayer. What is the common denominator? God wants our hearts. He wants our praying, our singing, and all we do for Him to be with all our heart. Yet we know there are still those who do exactly the opposite of what Jesus said. They continually recite formulaic prayers. They have turned Jesus’ example of how to pray in Matthew 6:9-15 into a repetition. They encourage others to recite a premade “sinner’s prayer” and say it will bring them salvation. Isn’t what Jesus said clear enough? Didn’t He say not to use vain repetitive prayers? Doesn’t He mean that we should pray what comes from our hearts? What is the perfect format for prayer? Whatever is in our hearts. Tell that to God.
If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me. One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18. If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me. Sincerely, Scott Long firstname.lastname@example.org
