The Centerville Church of Christ in the past has had a long history of holding Gospel Meetings. In August of this year, we are going back to having a yearly gospel meeting. I’m excited for this to be happening again and excited about our first speaker. Bro. Phil Sanders, host of the television program “In Search of the Lord’s Way” will be with us. I am going to share a few of his articles from time to time until our meeting in August. “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26 They say minor surgery is when it happens to someone else, and major surgery is when it happens to you. Someone else’s soul may not seem very valuable to you, but your soul is the most valuable thing you possess! The Lord Jesus ransomed our souls not with silver or gold but with His precious blood (1 Peter 1:18-20). Jesus “Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed” (1 Peter 2:24). He gave His head to a crown of thorns, His face to slaps and spit, His back and chest to a whip that brought blood, His hands and feet to nails, and His side to a spear. “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit” (1 Peter 3:18).

Your salvation is by grace; it is the free gift of God (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8), but it was not cheap. “Jesus paid it all; all to Him I owe. Sin had left a crimson stain; He washed it white as snow.” If we reject Jesus, and the price He paid for our sins to redeem our souls, then we have no other hope of eternal life. At SEARCH we strive to reach people’s hearts and minds with the gospel that Jesus Christ may win their souls. We are in the soul-winning business. God’s blessing, your prayers, and your financial support make this evangelistic ministry possible. We are grateful so many have prayed for us and generously supported us. We thank God for you! May the Lord be with you, Phil Sanders God Bless– Todd
