Terry made us realize ’, how having problems in our lives can be a blessing and not a punishment, :; lamentations 3:33 says "For He does not willingly bring affliction or grief .-'o the children or men." ,, :' Sunday's message reminds us of five ways God uses problems in our lives, :'they are: to direcL inspect, correct, protect and perfect us. We should look at problerrm we are having as a blessing from God not as a punishment. You ' "haay he experiencing a problem because you have taken a journey this is ' hot what God has planned for you, allow God to direct you back to his phm for you. As humans we don't like changes and when life is comfortable we won't change. God keeps inspecting us to bring the great out in us. God is always examining our hearts and motives; he is more interested in integrity ..than image. God corrects us because he loves us. You should feel tbrtunate when God corrects you that mean you are one of God's children and God doesn't punish his children, he takes punishments upon himself. If we allow God to direct our steps and learn to trust and obey him, he will protect us. It is impossible to grow spiritually without pain in life. God corrects us to perfect us so that we will become more like Jesus Christ. God can bless you so learn from your problems. Remember life on earth is preparation tbr etemal life so , :'keep looking to God for strength. God can do great things with all problems -'  stop today and asked God to direct, inspect, correct, protect and perfect I" you through your problems. "Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful ',) trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. i',  But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may [, : Se overjoyed when His glory is revealed. 1 Peter 4:12-13, i|,;t , , ": We encourage you to join us next Sunday to hear another great message I . from Terry.

He was a ribe and friend to Jeremiah the Old Testament prophet. He was called to read the stinging words of Jeremiah in the temple, at the cost of his political and social future. He did so faithfully, yet. he was very. sad. He prayed to God saying, "Woe is me now! For the LORD has added grief to my sorrow. I fainted in my sighing, and I find no resf' (Jer. 45:3). God answered througJa Jeremiah with a message to Baruch that said, "Do you seek great things for yourself7. Do not seek them...I will give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go" (Jer. 45:5). What a powerful message. God was letting Baruch know that it was okay to be ambitious, as long ts it was Godly anabition. And no maller what failures loomed ahead for Baruch (there were many), God would `send him away with life as a prize. That is a message that resonates in nmy homes today. We find ourselves embattled between our principles and our ambitions. And God's answer is the .same for us: IX) you `seek great things tbr yourself?. Do not seek them. If we claim that truth with the way we live our lives, then God's prornise will ring true as well. Our life will be laid out tbr us as a prize. A great message tbr Baruch, and a pretty good one for us as well. Perkins Church of Christ would like to invite you to our Fall Festival on October 31 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. here at our building. We will have a petting zxo, a bounce house, f(xxl, a costume contest and lots of candy and prizes. All this and the cost is nothing. The night of fun is absolutely free. So mark your calendars, pick out a fantastic costume, and get ready for a great time. At Perkins Church of Christ we have no creed but Christ, no book but the Bible, in faith unity, in opinions liberty, and ha all things love. Sunday morn- ing Bible class begins at 9 a.m., with Sunday morning worship following at 10 a.m. Sunckly evening Bible study is at 6 p.m. God bless, and have a great week.

Agra Baptist Church by Lois Slgnrall Have you ever had to stop and ask directions, did you you only half listened? The same is true in everything are in school, on the job, in the home, or in instructions we don't know how Bro. Roger Shaw continued in Rev. 3:1-6 with the church was active but spiritually dead, they were outwardl, things but were not right with God on the inside. Once God, our Lord and Master can lead others to God or turn them away. At times we God controls the `seven Spirits of God, Isaiah 11:2-5, "And the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, I of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge, and of t We are to be watchful and strengthen the things that are good.
