St. Jacobi Tidings ~ July 27- August 10, 2014

 

Devotion: Romans 8:26-39

If you have had a moment in your life when you knew that you needed to pray but your mind or body was too busy to actually stop and engage in prayer – than this scripture is for you! God understands our nature intimately because we are made in His image and because he walked and lived among us. In addition we have this gift of the interceding Holy Spirit. God works on our behalf when we love our Lord Christ Jesus. We get to join a team for God and then we are joined with everyone else who goes through the process of being called, justified and glorified. Nothing can separate us from the love of our God.

 

Reflection: If God is for us, who can be against us?

 

Prayer: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, not anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (v38-39)

The Covenant of St Jacobi Congregational Church:

We covenant to walk with one another to seek and respond to the Word and Will of God. 

We purpose to walk together in the ways of the Lord, made known and to be made known to us.

We hold it to be the mission of the Church to witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in all the world, while worshiping God as a striving for truth, justice and peace.

As did our fathers, we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead and empower us.

We pray for the coming of the kingdom of God, and we look forward with faith toward the triumph of righteousness and eternal life.
