Theme = ‘holiness’
As God’s family, let us turn towards the light of Jesus, let us shine with his light, and let us share that light with others.
Let’s together make a conscious decision to put on the new self, the new life God has won for us, and given us freely in Jesus.
Are you joining in with God’s work within you - are you maturing in holiness?
James puts it like this: do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
Mature Christians meet trials with perseverance, and meet doubt with wisdom.
Let us listen to James, do what he says, and learn to be devoted to Jesus with all our hearts
Salvation is the beginning of the Christian life. It is the foundation of the building, the first step of the journey. That journey, that building, is called holiness.
Jesus did not do away with the Fourth Commandment: instead he taught us that the Sabbath is a gift, not a burden.
Advent is a time, like Lent, for us to prepare ourselves for Jesusâ€™ return, to make sure he finds us waiting patiently, living holy and godly lives â€“ not to earn his love, but because he already loves us.
