What Are We Supposed To Do With Ourselves Now?

Now that Comedy Night is done, what are we supposed to do with ourselves? We’ve been so intensely practicing that we forgot about… gaming! Oh yeah. Mafia. That’s what we can do. Thanks, Alexa. And for the lesson time, we finished up the 3 M’s and 3 A’s for men […]

September 15th, 2011


Saturation Saturday was last week, and it was really cool to see so many of you out for doorknocking that day. The next day was our Kickoff Sunday, and it was a bummer that we couldn’t have class, because we had over 40 people here for Sunday school!!

 

I was REALLY excited to see so many of you putting yourselves out of your comfort zones and greeting the guests that were in our services. If you continue to act on your love for God and others, God will continue to bless. Thank you for acting on your spiritual decisions. For those of you who DIDN’T greet all the guests… doom on you, doom on you, doom on you…  You all had plenty of time to see them, shake their hands, and get their names. Don’t pass those opportunities up. They are the types of opportunities that will matter in 1 million years.

 

Also, be praying for the upcoming series on the tongue and on Bible study. I am very excited about the potential of each of these series, and I hope you open your hearts to the truths. Purpose now to be here on Wednesdays and determine to somehow make at least one small spiritual improvement every week.

 

Do right,

Bro. Ryan.

BOOKS TO HELP YOU

Our upcoming series on Bible study will help you learn how to learn on your own. Tools are used in every profession, and good money is spent to increase learning and effectiveness. You as a Christian should have tools to help your Christian life, and the Christian’s tools are… books. Here are a few books that I’d encourage you to spend about $40 or $50 on (see gettextbooks.com for cheap prices listed):

 

  • The King James Bible Commentary; Nelson Publishers; contributions by Dobson, Feinberg and more. About $14
  • A Survey of the Old Testament; by Hill and Walton; Zondervan (2nd edition is cheaper) About $10
  • Jensen’s Survey of the New Testament; Moody Press. About $17
  • World’s Bible Handbook; Boyd. About $13

 

Not everyone will buy these, but if you’re serious about God and finding out His direction for your life, you’ll be serious about finding answers in God’s Word. If you’re digging for direction (and you should be) you should have a hunger to know what God says, and these books can help you. It’s just a thought.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TITLE: Close your mouth

 

Pro. 3:30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.

Pro. 4:24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.

Pro. 10:13-14 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding. 14Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.

Pro. 10:18-19He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool. 19In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.

Pro. 10:31-32 The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out. 32The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.

Pro. 11:9 An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.

Pro. 11:12-13 He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace. 13A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.

Pro. 12:23 A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.

Pro. 13:3 He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.

Pro. 14:3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.

Pro. 14:7 Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.

Pro. 15:28 The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

 

Pro. 17:1 Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.

Pro. 17:27-28 He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. 28Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.

Pro. 18:13 He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

Pro. 21:23 Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.

Pro. 23:9 Speak not in the ears of a fool: for he will despise the wisdom of thy words.

Pro. 24:7 Wisdom is too high for a fool: he openeth not his mouth in the gate.

Pro. 25:9-10 Debate thy cause with thy neighbour himself; and discover not a secret to another: 10Lest he that heareth it put thee to shame, and thine infamy turn not away.

Pro. 26:4-5 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him. 5Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.

Pro. 27:2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.

Pro. 29:11 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards.

Pro. 29:20 Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him.
