St. Jacobi Tidings ~ October 26, 2014

Devotion: 1 Thessalonians 2.1-8

When your phone rings and you talk to an old friend, there is warmth and familiarity in the conversation. When you get a card from a relative or friend and they sign it personally, you can almost hear their words coming off the page. We know what it is like to have people who are close to us and we know the effort it takes to maintain those relationships. It is not easy, but certainly worth the effort. In this scripture we see a similar relationship between those in Thessalonica and the ministers that came with Paul to teach them how to please God, and take on the mighty task of sharing the Gospel message. We still have these tasks today, and we still share the burden with those who are closest to us. It is not easy, but we have been chosen and prepared for this good work.

Reflection: When I think of those closest to me, how can I speak to them about spiritual things?

Prayer: Lord, Jesus Christ, you came and sacrificed life for my behalf and I struggle to make a sacrifice for you. Be with me as I navigate this world and attempt to be who you have called me to be. 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.
