Our land is crying out for rain. May God pour out his showers of mercy on our parched land and broken lives.  Let us use every opportunity at this time to seek the Lord and to point others to him.  

We have been enjoying some rich times in the book of James in our Sunday morning services.  (See Reflections). Join us this Sunday when together we share Communion as we remember the great work Jesus did for us on the cross.

Reflections

Last Sunday, our brother David Pearson helped us to continue our series in James by sharing with us on Inside Out – The Secret to Living a Life of Rejoicing from James 1:19-27.  James is writing to Jewish Christians dispersed against their own will because of persecution.  They were refugees with no United Nations to take care of them and no refugee camps offering them secure lodgings.  It is in this context that James encourages them to live authentic Christian lives – rejoicing in God and living responsibly in light of God being in control.  James shifts focus from what God is doing to what Christians should do, how they ought to live to enjoy this life of rejoicing.  They must live from the inside out.  If the Word of God has been planted on their insides, then they must give the Word a chance to bloom on the outside.  The Word must be allowed to prune our lives so that everyone can benefit.  This however is not automatic.

Finally

Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime; it is the Lord who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone. (Zech 10:1)  Let us pray to the Lord who is merciful and compassionate.  Let us live for him from the inside out and enjoy his promised blessings.

 

In His Love,
Uncle Cecil
