St. Jacobi Tiding ~ March 9, 2014
Devotion –Romans 5:12-19
What about St. Paul’s assertion that one sin brought death to the whole human race? Well, I think we have to understand first of all that when Paul is talking about death coming to the whole human race as a consequence of one sin, I don’t think he’s talking about the physical limits of human mortality. I think he’s talking about death as a spiritual condition. He’s talking about those actions that affect the spirit, the heart, the mind, the very the soul of who we are as human beings. Can one sin lead to the death of a person’s very soul?
Reflection: What are the sins that I offer?
Prayer: Lord, keep me in your peace and blessing. Amen.

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.
