THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: One thing we see in the book of Job is the value of friends. After Job loses his possessions, his children, and his health; his three friends come from a great distance to be with him. When they see him, they must be astonished because they cannot recognize him. When they reach him, they remain in silence for seven days and nights. Think of the comfort their presence was to Job. It does not take long, in fact as soon as they open their mouths, that they betray their friendship to Job. They attack him as a sinner and say his troubles must be his fault. They do not mourn with Job, Romans 12:15. Most of us have probably had a “friend” who kicked us when we were down as Job’s friends do. Note these scriptures in relation to being a friend: Proverbs 17:17, 27:6, 27:9, 27:17. Be a true friend. As Job says in Job 6:14, “To him who is afflicted, kindness should be shown by his friend.”
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 email@example.com
