Our Pastor's Devotional - November 2019

Banking on the Promises of God.

In the ‘Message,’ translation of the Bible, Psalm 119:11 reads: “I've banked your promises in the vault of my heart so I won't sin myself bankrupt.”

If you think of a bank vault, it is generally a pretty safe place to keep your valuables. If you were planning to break into Fort Knox, one of the most secure vaults in the world! First you would need to climb the four surrounding fences—two of which are electric—then sneak past the armed guards lining the perimeter. Be sure to avoid the video cameras. Don’t waste time trying to blast through the granite walls—they are four feet thick and held together by 750 tons of reinforcing steel.

If you get past the armed guards inside, plus the maze of locked doors, you’ll probably be stopped by the 22-ton vault door. Don’t despair. The vault can be opened, but only if you find all the staff members who know a small slice of the combination (you’ll need all of them, since nobody knows the whole thing.) Once you get inside the vault, you’ll have to break into the smaller vaults tucked inside, then you can start taking the 5000 tons of gold bullion stored in there. And do be careful when you leave: 30,000 soldiers from Fort Knox’s military camp will be anxiously awaiting you outside.

What are these promises that we should bank in the vault of our heart, to keep us from sinning? God loves you, sometimes it is hard to even find the right words to describe the incredible love God has for you and me. In Ezekiel 18:23, the Bible says: “Do you think I [God speaking] take any pleasure in the death of wicked men and women? Isn't it my pleasure that they turn around, no longer living wrong but living right—really living?”

God loves us and He doesn’t want to see anyone lose out on eternity. In a kingdom, where there will be no more death or sorrow, there will be no more crying or pain, a kingdom where we can speak with God face to face. This sounds like the place I want to be, and God wants us there, but today sin is separating us, sin is stopping us access to Him. Isaiah 59:2 says, “There's nothing wrong with God; the wrong is in you. Your wrongheaded lives caused the split between you and God. Your sins got between you so that he doesn't hear.” This is why we need to bank the promises of God in the vault of our heart, so, when we are tempted to sin, we’ll turn from those sins.

God promises, “On the other hand, if we admit our sins—make a clean breast of them—He won't let us down; He'll be true to himself. He'll forgive our sins and purge us of all wrongdoing.” [1 John 1:9]. When we’ve banked God’s promises in the vault of our heart, when we put our trust in the promises of the Bible, we won't sin ourselves bankrupt and miss out on eternity.

Read God’s word today and hide or vault the promises of God in your heart.

A welcome to visit Middlesbrough Church from Isabel.

Hello, my name is Isabel Dirahu and I go to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Middlesbrough. I enjoy going to church because when you go you have lots of people keen to help you understand the Bible, you will find learning about God easy.

My church has lots of very different people, from across the world and different ages! There are teens, children, babies, adults and the elderly. The children in the church are a blessing, their compassion for God is endless, they sing for Him, tell stories about Him, and tell friends about Him and much more! Some children have been growing up in the church and have learnt brilliant things about our Saviour.

The teens are always up for Bible study and helping out, there are about six pre-teens and a few teens. It’s great to have an example for the kids of what they should believe in when they are older and some great singing teachers too!

The adults are a thrill to have in the church; they and the kids are like two peas in a pod! They always help when it comes to cooking, teaching and helping us to pray and read the Bible.

So I hope you will come to my church, because together with Christ we grow in faith and knowledge.


One of the fundamental beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is baptism by total immersion. This was a practise carried out by the early Christian believers in Britain but fell into disuse later. Our previous resident minister Pastor Peter Jeynes is a keen photographer and video maker. He has made a short film about an early outdoor baptistry that he found quite recently in the Pennines. To view this video requires RealPlayer, if this player is not on your computer it may be downloaded from this link.

The Middlesbrough Congregation now have their own church in Clive Road Middlesbrough. Previously we used the facilities of St. Barnabas Anglican Church. A Day of Fellowship was held there in September 2007 when five people were baptised by total immersion, the video may be viewed here.
