THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Paul told the Roman saints in his letter to them in 15:14, ” Now I myself am confident concerning you, my brethren, that you also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.” Considering this verse may bring us several points. First, Paul had never been to Rome. He did not plant the church there. True, he had met some people who were from there. Based on what he knew about the church, he was willing to think the best of the congregation, at least, until he had reason to think otherwise. Second, the statement speaks to expectations Paul had based on his knowledge of God’s operation among the saints. In other words, Paul had confidence that the Lord would supply the congregation with those things that it needed, 1 Corinthians 1:4-8. Third, it seems there is a succession here. The saints in Rome, Paul believed, were at their core, good. As a result of that goodness, they would seek after the knowledge that God supplied to them; and as a result of their goodness combined with knowledge, they would be able to admonish (to urge) each other on in doing the work of ministry. Without goodness, there is no desire to seek knowledge. Without knowledge, there is no admonishing of each other in the service of the Lord. Today, we, as Christians, should assume the best of our brethren; realize that God supplies what we need, 2 Corinthians 9:10, 1 Peter 4:11; and diligently seek goodness and knowledge and use them to admonish each other.
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
