Dear Grace Church,
If we have been changed, then we have been changed. It can be a struggle for us to enact a new way of life in Christ Jesus, but the Holy Spirit is at work in our lives. We need to allow him to do the work on reforming us. The question we must ask is, “Do I really want to be different?” The cost can seem high, but peace and joy follow this change.
This week I will cover James 2:1-13. James addresses the sin of partiality. He links this sin to the command of Jesus that we are to love one another. It is important for us to deeply consider the impact that partiality has on us.
We will be packing OCC boxes tomorrow morning. We still need some donations to ship the boxes. Please consider sponsoring a box or several at $10 per box. Additionally, please make plans to attend our Thanksgiving potluck Wednesday November 16 th. The church is providing the meat, please bring your favorite Thanksgiving side.
