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!!

Who Will Be Saved?

By John R. Gibson

 

An Awkward Situation

Have you ever been asked, “Do you think you have to be a member of the Church of Christ to be saved?” Or perhaps it was put to you this way, “You think you are the only ones going to heaven, don’t you?” I know I have been asked such questions a few times and have found myself struggling for an answer that would be true to God’s word and, at the same time, not close the door to the possibility of converting the one asking the question. I have not always done a good job in answering such questions, but I would like to offer for your consideration an approach suggested to me by another gospel preacher.

Distinct Disciples

By Bubba Garner

 

It is amazing to me how people in the world will sometimes use the name of Jesus to justify their behavior. They choose an immoral lifestyle and then cry, “Jesus never judged people” to anyone who might oppose them. They have a picture in their mind of a soft, cuddly Savior who never said anything controversial and tried to keep the peace at all costs.

For I Am a Great King

By John R. Gibson

 

The Old Testament closes in a fiery way as the fifth century B.C. prophet Malachi rebukes the returned remnant of Judah for various sins including divorce, failure to pay their tithes, complaints about God’s injustice, et al, but I want us to pay special attention to the prophet’s denunciation of their “sacrifices.”

 

“ ‘You offer defiled food on My altar….you offer the blind as a sacrifice….you offer the lame and sick….you say, “The table of the LORD is defiled; And its fruit, its food, is contemptible.” You also say, “Oh, what a weariness!” And you sneer at it,’ says the LORD of hosts. ‘And you bring the stolen, the lame, and the sick….’ ” Malachi 1:6-14

Knowledgeable, Discerning Love

By John R. Gibson

 

“And this I pray, that your love may abound still more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent….” Philippians 1:9-10a

 

Paul had a special bond with the saints at Philippi and this was reflected in the fact that he was always making request for them in his prayers (Phil. 1:3-4). While there were certainly other elements to his prayers on their behalf, let’s think seriously about the details of the prayer given in 1:9-10. The apostle desired that the Philippians, a people who had shown much love to him through the years, have a love that abounded in knowledge and discernment. That he would express this desire should tell us that what we think to be love is not always what God wants it to be; i.e. it is not always in accord with His will and does not always reflect “senses exercised to discern both good and evil” (Hebrews 5:14). Let’s look at a few areas in which our love needs to reflect a knowledge of God’s word and the discernment to make good choices.
