The Reformed Church In Kinnelon

We are a Church family celebrating our unity at Christ’s table by praising God’s name in worship and in prayer. Our Church is guided by the Holy Spirit, embracing God’s Grace, nurturing each other’s gift, supporting each other in Christian Love and reaching out to others in Christ’s name.

Grace

Grace (from the Greek New Testament word charis) is God’s unmerited favor. It is kindness from God that we don’t deserve. There is nothing we have done, nor can ever do to earn this favor. It is a gift from God to those in his church.  Grace is divine assistance given to humans for their regeneration; a virtue coming from God; a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine favor.

Only through Jesus Christ we are offered grace, a free gift. This is contrary to human nature, which in pride says I can do it myself. Our attitude is, €my life is my own and I will do with it as I please. Jesus says “yes I gave you life and I gave you power to choose; it is your choice.”  So we choose love and give our life to Jesus, and rest in Him, or we choose pride becoming God’s enemy, trying to work and climb up to heaven another way besides through Jesus. (John 14:6 NKJV) Jesus said  I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Bible Verse of the Day
Live Well, Live Wisely

James 3:13-16 Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here’s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly.  It’s the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts.  Mean-spirited ambition is no€™t wisdom.  Boasting that you are wise is not wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourselves sound wise is not wisdom. It’s the furthest thing from wisdom.  It’s animal cunning, devilish conniving.  Whenever you’re trying to look better than others or get the better of others, things fall apart and everyone ends up at the other’s throats.

James 3:17-18 Real wisdom, God’s wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor.
