Gems in the book of Romans
Paul’s statement in Ro
He will render to each one according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; but for those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. Romans 2:6-8
SSome of Paul’s Jewish readers had made the mistake of thinking that they would be declared righteous by God and spared from His wrath for their sin by simply being Jewish. This misconception also exists in many Christians today. They can quote the Bible, debate on Social Media, point the fingers at others, shout the loudest “amens” during church, and the like. Yet, they still live worldly and little or no evidence of the fruit of the Spirit in their life. This behavior irritated James, as well. He writes, “But be doers of the Word, and not hearers only” (James 1:22). The theme of “doing” in the Bible is essential. Christians are also judged according to what they do or did not do. It is a matter of the heart. Is the heart regenerated? Is the heart sanctified? Is it regenerated? For the presumptuous person that quickly replies, “Yes,” but there is no sufficient evidence in behavior, James also advises, “Do not deceive yourself.” Self-examination is the medicine that can cure this spiritual sickness.
A short message to ponder on… Have any one else in church noted during last Sunday's meal how willing our small children were to set up the tables, and moving chairs around!!! Well done to them.. I dare to say that they worked as much as the grown ups... We are obliged to pray that the same energy they have now will never cease to glorify God.. we shall pray and thank the Lord that we should be like wise... Some times our children teach us as well.. Blessings
ZOOM MEETINGS Some members are still not abiding with ZOOM meetings rules. Consequently, as from September 13, 2020, those allowed to enter will: 1. meet to have a valid reason for not coming to church. 2. abide with the rules previously given. Zoom is to be considered as a need, not a substitution for the attendance in church and there will be no more compromise. Therefore, those who feel have a valid reason not to attend church, will need to contact Lawrence or Joe from the evening before, or as early as possible in the morning. If not, they will not be allowed in.

WOL Marriage Devotion
This week we will continue on the same subject from last week. Speaking the truth is essential even about things that one spouse perceives as wrong in the other’s behavior. This is a two-way road because the couple is to build one another. However, first, the principle of Matthew 7:3-5 will need to be applied. This means that spouses are to first learn about the log in their eye, and are willing for their soul-mates to point out issues to them. If one points out things and then not giving the right to the other
to equally have the right to point out problems, then, according to Jesus, he or she is a hypocrite. Just as much we want our spouse to understand us, we must also be willing to understand our partner. Gary Thomas wrote: “Just when we are most eager to make ourselves understood, we must strive to understand. Just when we seek to air our grievances, we must labor to comprehend another’s hurt. Just when we want to point out the fallacies and abusive behavior of someone else, we must ruthlessly evaluate our own offensive attitudes and behaviors” (Sacred Marriage). Let us then, always speak the truth in love!
Speaking the truth in Love  Prov. 15:1
