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!!

Peter and Judas at the Crossroads

 

By John R. Gibson

 

The night before the crucifixion two of Jesus’ apostles failed their Lord and committed shameful acts. For thirty pieces of silver, Judas Iscariot led the chief priests to the garden where Jesus had been accustomed to going. There he hypocritically greeted Jesus with a kiss so that in the darkness they would be able to identify the One they sought. At that moment, recklessly and impulsively, yet quite courageously, Peter took a sword and sought to defend Jesus. However, later that same night at the high priest’s house, Peter’s courage completely failed him and he denied Jesus three times. (See Matthew 26; Mark 14; Luke 22; John 18).

But What If They Won’t Be Drawn

 

By John R. Gibson

What wonderful news—the crucified Lord is to draw all to Himself and His gospel is God’s power to save! Yet some are not interested in the gospel and feel no need for Jesus in their lives; the lifted up Christ and His teaching do not appeal to them. So, what are we to do? This is an issue of real concern to all who care about the lost, which constitute the vast majority of people around us, often including friends and family. People are headed down the broad way to destruction and seem to have no interest in the message we are proclaiming, so what are we to do?

Saying What Needs to Be Said

 

By John R. Gibson

 

“Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.” Luke 17:3, 4

 

“And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’” Luke 15:21

 

These passages, along with many others, show that we must be willing to admit it when we have wronged someone and then humbly ask their forgiveness. The late John Clark often said that ten of the most important words in a marriage were, “I have sinned. I am sorry. Will you forgive me?” And while these can be critical to the happiness of a marriage, we must be willing to use these same words (or similar ones) in all our relationships.

In Search of Truth

 

By Jim Deason

 

The Bereans “were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11). Many good sermons have been preached from this text. I have an old outline in my preaching arsenal, the idea for which I think came from a sermon preached by Robert Jackson many years ago, asserting that the Bereans believed because they kept three things: (1) Open minds (2) Open Bibles, and (3) Open schedules. It is hard to beat such a simple approach. Open minds? We are told that “a mind is a terrible thing to waste,” and a closed mind is a wasted mind. Open Bibles? When one refuses to turn to the only source of spiritual light, he will remain in darkness. Open schedules? When one is too busy to search for truth, he is too busy and destined for destruction.
