Hebrew Ch 13 v 2
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.
We should all ask ourselves how many times someone has crossed our paths in their moment of need and we have been in a position to help?
Be it a car breakdown,
Lost their purse,
Involved in an accident
It’s a lovely feeling to know that we have made their lives a little easier in their time of need. But what a thought to know they could have been placed in front of us to see how we would react. We could have been touched by an angel.

Isaiah Ch 5 v 20
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
Isaiah the prophet writes at a time when the people have rejected God. He gives due warnings of God’s displeasure. God will judge those responsible for their wrong doing. How displeased must God be today seeing the injustice meted out by many, the wars and the hypocrisy just to name a few areas of behaviour that go against his teachings?

James Ch 1 v 2
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds
This verse taken from James letter is thought to have been aimed at Christian’s in general and not a particular Church.
His positive attitude to difficult situations he faced shows how much faith he had in God, knowing he could turn to him for help and guidance in how to deal with any problem encountered. He doesn’t blame God when things go wrong, rather looks at it as a learning experience. James displays true Christian behaviour and standards.he puts his faith into practice and it shows. The question is….’do we?’

James Ch 1 v 11
For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business.
This verse reads as a warning to us all. One thing is clear in life we can count on nothing, not even tomorrow. It’s why as a Christian we should live each and every day with Christian principles. All the riches in the world will one day mean nothing. We should never lose sight of eternity.

James Ch 1 v 19
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
God’s way or the world’s way? We have two ears and one mouth and they should be used proportionately!
Having Christian wisdom in dealing with situations is different from being worldly wise. The worldly wise are often full of selfish ambition, eager to make a name for themselves with no consideration for others. Our judgement in all matters should never be clouded by personal ambition.

James Ch 2 v 24
You see that people are justified by what they do and not by faith alone.
Time and time again we are reminded that saying we have faith and claiming to be a Christian doesn’t wash unless we follow up with actions. We need to prove we are Christian by what we do. That is the test.
Written Sunday Service June 19th led by Rev. Mary Ellen Thomson
