Welcome to Jones Road!

What is the Jones Road church? We are a group of Christians who have made it our aim to be no more and no less than that which we read about in the New Testament. We are “of Christ” because He is our Savior and King and our goal is to allow His word to control all we do.

Our building is located nine miles east of Athens, Alabama on Jones Road. If you are in North Alabama, please stop by and visit us. You are always welcome!!

Does Our Speech Betray Us?

 

By John R. Gibson

 

As Peter warmed himself by the fire he was told, “Surely you also are one of them, for your speech betrays you” (John 18:18, 25; Matthew 27:73). While Peter’s denials of Jesus would make a good study, I want to focus on the idea of our speech betraying us. On more than one occasion Jesus pointed out that one’s words are reflective of his heart, sometimes for good and sometimes for evil (e.g. Matt. 12:34-37; 15:18, 19). What does our speech say about us? Does it betray something about us that, like Peter, we would prefer to deny?

That’s Embarrassing...Or Not

 

By John R. Gibson

No! They were not at all ashamed;

Nor did they know how to blush.

Therefore they shall fall among those who fall;

At the time I punish them,

They shall be cast down,’ says the Lord.”

Jeremiah 6:15

 

It is not uncommon today to see people out in public exposing as much or more of their bodies as would be seen if they went out in nothing but their underwear. Women wearing low-cut tops. Men going shirtless. Both men and women often expose most or all of their thighs. Skin-tight does not seem like a strong enough description of how tight some clothing is.

Helping Other People Raise Their Children

 

By Greg Chandler

 

Someone once quipped, “Few things are more scary than an angry mother.” This is certainly true for a child who finds himself on the wrong side of his mother, but even more frightening for someone a mother perceives as hurting her children. This fear, exacerbated by a hyper-sensitive culture, means that many shun offering help when it comes to other people’s children. Sadly, this often deprives a child of voices that offer encouragement and pro-vide guidance in building a relationship with God. It is a trend that must be reversed.

Parents, Be Consistent With Your Attendance

By Greg Gwin

All godly parents are concerned about bringing up their children to be good, God-fearing people. Of course, we are commanded to do so (Ephesians 6:4). Consistency is an essential key in bringing up faithful children. An obvious area where this consistency needs to be seen is in the matter of attendance.

Don’t Miss Either Point

By John R. Gibson

Are you more of a “take heed lest [you] fall” or a God “will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able” person?
