Verse of the Day

We Have Moved!!

We have outgrown our building! After nearly a half century at our Stone Street location, as of Sunday, January 25, 2015 we are now meeting in our new building located at 514 Airport Road (corner of Airport Road and Prospect Road) in Jonesboro. With the new location, a name change was also necessary. We will now be known as the StoneRidge church of Christ. Please be patient while we update the website. We look forward to seeing you at our new location! Glory to God in all things and we thank Him for giving the increase so that this move was necessary.

This is the question of the Ages. Try as one might, it is an inescapable question. Whether he phrases the question orally or not, every man makes a decision concerning what he will do with Jesus. All are confronted by it. We are told that Moses made a decision regarding Christ  (Hebrews 11:24-26). As it appears in the title of this article, the question was first phrased by Pontius Pilate when he faced a bloodthirsty mob who demanded the crucifixion of Jesus (Matthew 27:22). Though he thought he had avoided the question, he had not. And though he thought he was dealing with a temporary problem of the moment, it had eternal consequences. And so it is with everyone.

Perhaps you have heard sermons on this subject that show how some in the Bible answered this question. The answer of Judas was selling him (Matthew 26:14-16)). The Jews’ answer was crucifying him (Matthew 27:22-23). Peter dealt with the question by denying him (Matthew 26:69-75). Some of his disciples decided to walk no more with him (John 6:66). Felix thought he could postpone a decision, but that was a decision! Agrippa was almost persuaded, but too many things stood in his way. Pilate thought he could be neutral, but his balancing act showed which side he was on (Matthew 27:24-26). It amounted to a rejection of Jesus. “He that is not with me is against me” (Matthew 12:30). The 3,000 who obeyed on Pentecost will be eternally in the presence of God, if they kept their commitment to Jesus.

One may find himself described by one or more of these, for they cover all the basic reasons why men reject the Christ. However, this article is not about Moses or Pilate. Nor is it about Judas, Peter, or others. It is about you. What will you, (put your name in the blank) do with Jesus? Read Entire Article

Did you perchance hear about the little boy who was looking at the family photograph album with his mother? As he pondered a particular picture of a fine-looking young couple on their wedding day he proudly said, “She’s pretty. That’s you, isn’t it Mama?”

“Yes Junior, that’s me”, his mother responded.

“Mama”, he asked, “who’s that man with the great big muscles and all that black hair with you?”

“Why Junior, that’s your Daddy”, she answered.

With a perplexed look, the curious boy then asked, “Then Mama, who’s that fat man with the bald-headed haircut who lives with us now?”

timeflysby.gifJohn Lennon sang, "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."   For a surety, life is and does many things. One thing it doesn’t do is sit still. Life’s kinda like that rolling stone that gathers no moss you've maybe heard of. It’s in a state of constant transition, all too rapidly moving from one scene to the next. All of us old enough to care or notice realize this as we take down our old calendar and put up a new one to begin another year. And maybe even more apparent is our perception of the time span between birthdays shrinking more and more. They do roll around a bit quicker every year, don't they? Read Entire Article
