Letter from John
Sometimes encouragement from others can help us do things we couldn't do alone. Hebrews 24-25 tells us “
And let us consider each other carefully for the purpose of sparking love and good deeds…Instead, encourage each other...” Common English Bible
I am intrigued by the “Do Good” Team of the youth program. This group of adult volunteers works with Matt Wiggins and the Youth Committee in creating opportunities for our youth to do good by offering mission opportunities, both here at DCPC and in the larger world. If you haven’t seen what they have coming up, check out the Youth Ministry Guide Book!
As followers of Christ and members of his body, we are told to encourage one another. The book of James says, “
My brothers and sisters, what good is it if people say they have faith but do nothing to show it?” While we know that our good works are not dependent on salvation, I like to think of them as byproducts of faith. Let’s encourage each for the purpose of
good deeds and
doing good in the community.
See you in church on Sunday!
