Our Pastor's Devotional - January 2020

‘Words that give eternal life’

How must Jesus have felt, when the Bible says, many of His followers began to turn away from Him? Was it because they didn’t believe the things Jesus had to say? Was it, that in Jesus they saw some kind of dictator or unfair leader? Or had they felt the truths Jesus shared with them too hard to follow? The scripture says, Jesus turns to the twelve and says: “Are you also going to leave?” Look at the reply of Peter in John 6:68-69, ‘Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life. 69 We believe, and we know you are the Holy One of God.”' What are these words that give eternal life? Are they relevant for us today?

In John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” Jesus is the way. Jesus’ righteousness is the path that leads to eternal life, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.’ [Acts 16:31]. As we believe in the sacrifice Jesus made for each one of us, as we confess our sins, ‘He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness’ [1John 1:9]. Jesus will clothe us with His righteousness, that God will know longer see us, in our pitiful, wicked state, but Jesus’ purity, goodness and mercy.

Jesus is truth. When Jesus stood before Pontius Pilate, the governor asked Him, "What is truth?" [John 18:38]. Well, what is truth? Jesus says, ‘Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.’ The song says: ‘Beautiful words, wonderful words, Wonderful words of life.’ The scripture, speaking of God, says it is: ‘Impossible for God to lie.’ [Hebrews 6:18] We can believe the Bible, the word of God, in the word we have truth.

Jesus is life, and Jesus so desperately wants you to have life, not just now, but for eternity. The apostle John writes in his first epistle, ‘And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.’

Do you have the Son, Jesus Christ, in your life, if not invite Him in today? Please, don’t turn away from Jesus as many did, Jesus is only a prayer away, accept Jesus and believe.

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.
