This means our immediate neighbors are carpenter bees. We strive to be holy in our household, but we do not want our house to be holey... if you know what I mean. Recently, we noticed that on the corner of the back patio there is a suspended piece of 4x4 wood with a mason jar attached to the bottom of it. I had never seen one of these devices, and upon examination I noticed the jar was full to the top of those dreaded Drill-Bit Bumble Bees. It’s a primitive trap that is quite genius! There are four entry holes drilled into each side of the wood at an upward angle. These four tunnels access a center hole drilled from the bottom. The bee enters the hole, thinking it is a beehive. When it realizes it is not, the bee tries to escape and by instinct goes to the one source of light, falling into the jar and getting trapped. “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death” (Proverbs 16:25). If we use ourselves only as the source of our truth or decision-making, Solomon says the end to this is death. In essence, we will be a lot like this bee, making our home in a way of life that at first seems harmless -- even fun. But as we travel further down the path, we recognize that it isn’t right. This represents sin. “So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin” (James 4:17). Being caught in sin can cause us to dig ourselves deeper into the mess, even when we are trying to get out of it. I have not met one alcoholic who is happy with being an alcoholic. I have not met one drug addict who is happy with being a drug addict. I don’t know anyone who has not felt some sort of remorse for a sinful action. We all have a built-in mechanism to know when we’ve done something that has gone too far. Often ,it’s what we do next that will make the difference. We will often follow our own instincts and head to the light, not realizing living in sin is a trap. We can be well-intentioned and get caught even further into Satan’s trap. Read James 1:13-16 and find how the Bible defines this very trap of sin. “Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures” (James 1:16-18). Verse seventeen gives us the true light that will get us out of sin’s mess. Obeying the word of truth is what will bring us out of sin. The Father of lights sent His only begotten son to be raised by a carpenter. In essence, Jesus was willing to BEE our carpenter replacement -- to take on sin for us, and build a way out so we would not have to BEE TRAPPED in sin. Read Romans 6:1-14 to learn how to BEE free from sin.

Think of all the wonderful mission efforts we can fund! ____________________________________________ Jefferson Christian Academy In the spring of 1970, several interested individuals - all members of the Church of Christ – began formulat- ing plans to fund and develop a great school to provide quality education in a Christian environment for the young people of the Birmingham area. In the fall of 1971, operation of Jefferson Christian Academy began with thirty students in kindergarten through the fourth grade, meeting in the old building of the Homewood Church of Christ. Enrollment grew to sixty students the following year, necessitating a move to larger facilities, which were provided by what was then the Woodlawn Church of Christ (now Deerfoot Church of Christ). The academy continued to expand there until it moved to the campus of the former Birmingham Univer- sity School in 1975. In February of 1985, JCA moved to its present facilities on a 15-acre campus on the eastern edge of Irondale. The purpose of Jefferson Christian Academy is to provide and maintain a safe Christian environment that promotes spiritual and academic growth. It is a Bible based school that focuses on the whole child; spirit, mind, body and a servant’s heart. Their goal is to prepare their students for life and eternity with each day centered on Biblical truth and its application to everyday life. We will encourage each child to develop and use the talents that God has given them so that they may be a role model for others. They provide a clear model of Christian life through their faculty, staff and Board of Directors and strive to train up each child to follow the example of Christ – “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men” (Luke 2:52). JCA students have daily Bible classes for K4-12 grade, daily chapel services for 6th -12th grade, and twice- a-week chapel services for K4-5th grade. Deerfoot Church of Christ has been supporting the school’s academics by giving $12,000 to help pay the salary of the man who serves as the teacher for all of the Bible classes. We believe that this is an important work of teach- ing God’s word to the children and we need the church to continually give liberally to support this and the other works of spreading God’s word. Please begin thinking seriously of how much you can give on Mission Sunday.
