Snowed In!

Here we are in St. Louis snowed in again.  I think we got five or six inches, but it was through the night so there wasn't time to clean the streets.  There were 840 school closings this morning.  Wayne was bummed out because his history class was supposed to be at 10 today and he loves the class.  This is his fifth history class he's taken at Meramec, and he's running out of choices.  

I went out to Meramec yesterday to visit, and it was fun seeing all of my old work friends.  My replacement seems to be doing fine.  Then I picked up Abbey and Erin at noon because their school closed early due to the weather forecast.  They are nice kids, and really pretty easy.  They play really well together; they'll go up in the playroom for a couple of hours and we don't hear a thing.

We've had two birthdays in the past couple of weeks, my son-in-law Dave's, and my grand daughter Abbey's.

    The New Testament church began on the Day of Pentecost. Does the church congregation where you worship resemble the Lord's church. (Acts 2:47...And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved) (NKJV).

    Acts 2:22-41......41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. (NKJV)
    Acts 2:22-41......41 And those who believed Peter were baptized--- about 3,000 in all! (The Living Bible ---Paraphrased)

    The 3000 all believed Peter when he preached Jesus as a miracle worker, and as Lord and Christ. They believed Peter when he said that God raised Jesus from the grave. They believed Peter when he told them to repent (repent means to make the intellectual commitment to turn from sin and to turn toward God) and be baptized so their sins could be forgiven. They believed Peter when he told them they would received the gift of the Holy Spirit. (That would be the indwelling of the Holy Spirit Himself.)

    Is that what occurs at the church where you attend?

    Acts 2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. (NKJV)
    Acts 2:42 They joined with the other believers in regular attendance at the apostles' teaching sessions and at the Communion service and prayer meetings. (The Living Bible---Paraphrased)

    Is that what occurs at the church where you attend?

    1. Is the apostles doctrine taught or is made-made church tradition taught at your church?
    2. Is the apostles doctrine taught or is a semi-religious entertainment session presented, with skits, jokes, and or a secular a perspective of God's teaching? Is the gospel presented as an alternative, or the only way of salvation? Is sin preached as sin and then apologized for, or is sin simply not mentioned?
    3. Is communion offered every Lord's Day, or is it offered weekly, monthly, yearly?(Acts 20:7...on the first day of the week...)
    4. Is regular attendance encouraged, or is Easter, Christmas, and a few Sundays a year deemed to be sufficient? (Hebrews 10:25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.) (NKJV)
    5. Is prayer an import part of the church you attend?
