"CLEAN UP AT CALVARY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL"  
  
Some of our teachers are planning on working Saturday, May 27, 2017, cleaning out their classroom.  

What does this mean?  Teachers need your help boxing up books, personal items, lifting boxes, cleaning, and so much needs to be done before June 1st.  If you are able to help and/or you still need PPP hours, please contact the school secretary at (510) 278-2598, or speak to your student's teacher and she if they will need your help.

Thank you so much for continuing to support the CCS teachers. 

           

   
 
"The God Who Saves"
Ephesians 2:8-9
  
Recently I was talking with a fellow about his spiritual life. When I asked, "Are you saved?" he answered, "No, but I'm working at it." When I pressed him, he explained that he was making some changes in his life. He had given up smoking and drinking, among other things. I knew that I should help him understand a few important principles, as his only guarantee so far was better health.

What this gentleman needed to realize was that what we do or what we give up for Jesus doesn't amount to much. The Lord isn't looking for people who change a few habits by sheer force of will; He's calling people to surrender themselves to Him. The only action God expects of a "seeker" is to believe in Jesus--that He is who He says, He will do what He says, He has the authority to forgive, and He will equip His people to live a godly life. Because of those convictions, a new Christian is empowered to turn away from his old life--in other words, to repent--and begin the process of becoming "a new creation" (2 Cor. 5:17).

We don't evolve into a saved people by deleting old habits and instituting better religious ones; we are transformed by the saving power of Jesus Christ when we believe in Him.

Since salvation isn't something we earn, no one can boast before God. All of our moral living, good deeds, and strenuous efforts to change bad habits amount to a pile of trash compared to the holiness of Jesus Christ (Isa. 64:6). Only His righteousness can cover our sins and make us right before the Father.
