Faith and Deeds
Winter does seem to have come quickly this year with cold weather here already. Please pray for all our CAP clients who are struggling to pay the bills, many having to sacrifice food or heating, and this colder weather can make life even more of a struggle, especially for those struggling to provide for families or battling health issues as well.
Give thanks that they have reached out to CAP for help. CAP is a faith based charity, with Christ's message of love at the centre, not just practical help to relieve debt and escape poverty, but carrying the message of the Good News as well - faith and deeds combined to make a difference.
James 2: 14 - 17 (NIV)
14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
When our debt coaches and visit team enter the homes of our clients, they bring love and warmth in with them - they bring practical help to relieve debt and they also bring the Good News, God's ever-living message of love.
1 Peter 1: 22 - 23 (TLB)
22 Now you can have real love for everyone because your souls have been cleansed from selfishness and hatred when you trusted Christ to save you; so see to it that you really do love each other warmly, with all your hearts.
23 For you have a new life. It was not passed on to you from your parents, for the life they gave you will fade away. This new one will last forever, for it comes from Christ, God’s ever-living Message.
Please pray for those struggling as colder weather arrives, facing the Christmas season with debt, illness, mental health issues, addictions, loneliness. Pray for all those who can bring love and warmth into their lives.
