James’ Notes

AUGUST 31, 2014

Marks of the True Christian

Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor....Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all....Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. —Romans 12:9-10,17,21 (excerpt from Epistle)

Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things: Graft in our hearts the love of your Name; increase in us true religion; nourish us with all goodness; and bring forth in us the fruit of good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen. —The Collect of the Day

Come, almighty to deliver,
let us all thy life receive;
suddenly return, and never,
nevermore thy temples leave.
Thee we would be alway blessing,
serve thee as thy hosts above,
pray, and praise thee without ceasing,
glory in thy perfect love.
—Hymn 657 (excerpt), Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
