In the Sanctuary
every first Sunday at
9:00 a.m. & 11:15 a.m.
Looking forward to
Sunday, September 28
Dear friends in Christ,
We think, "If I just go to church every Sunday..." or, "If I just volunteer to serve regularly..." or, "If I just put something in the offering plate..." that will make me a good Christian. But like it or not, we are Christians simply by virtue of our faith in Christ.
According to the book of James, being a "good" Christian means living out our faith one day, one action, one word at a time. The actions themselves don't make us Christians; we are Christians, and so we must act. But it’s not just James saying this.
--It was the preaching of John the Baptist that men should prove the reality of their repentance by the excellence of their deeds (Matthew 3:8, Luke 3:8).
--It was Jesus’s preaching that men should so live that the world might see their good works and give the glory to God (Matthew 5:16).
--Jesus insisted that it was by their fruits that men must be known and that a faith which expressed itself in words only could never take the place of one which expressed itself in the doing of the will of God (Matthew 7:15-21).
Do we delude ourselves thinking we’re shouldering our part of the burden?
Join our 2nd Family on Sunday at 9:00 a.m. in the Chapel or 11:15 a.m. in Sanctuary as we live into our identity as Christians, one day at a time.
