What is the Silver Spring Church of Christ?

link to the Spanish Ministries link to directions

A better question would be who is the Silver Spring Church of Christ? We are a body of people who believe that Jesus Christ is Lord -- meaning that God lived on earth in the form of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus Christ taught us how to live, died for our sins, rose from the dead (to demonstrate that He really was God) and now sits at the right hand of the Father.

Our congregation consists of people from every race, of many languages and nationalities (about 25 nations represented on a typical Sunday morning!), of all ages, educational levels, marital statuses, and economic levels.

We are all sinners who have thrown ourselves on the grace of God, and we live with a joy and peace because God graciously forgives. God's Holy Spirit lives in us, and changes us from what we should otherwise be without Him.

Peace, Perfect Peace

The news of the horrific tragedy in Paris, France which took several hundred lives has impacted all of us who have read these reports. People who were shopping and/or eating a meal at a restaurant were gunned down and are no longer among the living human beings there.

Unbelievable! And now we hear that some of the terrorists are targeting the United States and D.C. in particular. What is next? How do you and I react to these reports? May I urge myself and each reader to go to the Word of God for answers.

The Book of John, chapter 14 and verse 27 reads, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." We must find our peace in a close and trusting relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul writes in Romans, chapter 5, verses 1 and 2, "Therefore since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. "Another Bible writer, the Apostle Peter says in I Peter, chapter 3, verse 11, "He must turn from his evil and do good; he must seek peace and pursue it." 

A verse that is quoted and heard often in this upcoming holiday time is Luke 2: 14, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." Do we long for peace? I would be astonished if anyone answered no to that question. Of course we hope and we Christians must pray for peace. Another question is does His favor rest upon us? The answer depends upon our response to His offer of saving grace or favor to you and me. Have we understood the reason that the "Prince of peace" or Jesus Christ has come into this world of ours?

Do we believe that He is the Son of God and have we placed our trust for eternal salvation in Him and His saving death on the cross for us? Have we been baptized (the word means immersed) for the forgiveness of our past sins? Read Acts, chapter 2, verse 38. If you have done these things as instructed by the Word of God then you have received not only forgiveness of past sins but you now have the peace that passes understanding. Philippians, chapter 4 and verse 8 states this truth.

Let me finish this article by saying, dear readers, that my hope and prayer is for all of us to have a strong and faithful relationship with the Son of God as the Lord and Savior of our lives. That we shall experience peace here now and forever in the afterlife. If I can help clarify anything stated above with any reader please do not hesitate to call me. May the peace of God and His Son Jesus Christ be with each of us. In these days of tragedies such as happened in Paris recently, may we hold tightly on to God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Peace, blessings, and love to every reader

"The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, 'The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!'  The LORD is good to those who depend on him, to those who search for him. So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the LORD."

Lamentations 3:22-26
