For the week of January 17
Show and Tell!
Scripture: James 2: 14-18
James is all about living our faith: “I by my works will show you my faith.” (2:18) The letter speaks very plainly about how important it is to confess our faith, not just with our words, but with our actions. On Sunday, we will install a new class of elders. They, like all who have served, not just on Session, but in the many ways this congregation serves God, are people who not just speak about their faith, but live their faith. Let’s celebrate the ways these special people have answered God’s call to show their faith and how this congregation does so, every day.
Show Jesus, Jamie Grace
Do you remember having show and tell at school? What ever happened to show and tell? That was a time in elementary school when students would bring in something fun or creative to share with the class. I clearly recall desperately wanting to bring the chipmunk we rescued from our cat to show and tell. The chipmunk, whom I named Flash, actually spent 3 days in rehab with us and then went back to the wild and I never got to take him to show and tell. I’m sure my teachers were relieved! Whether it’s a chipmunk or just a toy, there was always something special about show and tell. Even if we can’t do show and tell in school anymore, we do it every day of our lives. We show and tell all about our Savior. To use the words of the Jamie Grace song: “I gotta tell you that I like the way, any time anywhere any place, it’s written all over your face, the way you love Jesus. And it always speaks to me, a little joy with a touch of peace. It’s so inspiring, the way you show Jesus.”
