Our Pastor's Devotional - March 2020

Don’t Panic!

Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Psalm 37:3.

I remember the old sitcom ‘Dad’s Army,’ one of those who had a key part in the programme was Corporal Jones. If anything happened, he would immediately jump up and shout “Don’t Panic, don’t Panic!” Yet he was always the first one to jump up and run around in an state of near hysteria.

Today in 2020 it seems as though the world is in panic! If it’s not one thing it’s another. There’s panic over the weather, in some places it’s too hot and the ice-caps are melting, which could result in some areas being reclaimed by the sea.

In other places it’s too dry and there’s the possibility these places will turn into dust bowls. While in other places it’s so windy, we see airports, like those in the Canaries, closed down because of Sahara sand being blown over from Africa, which made it too dangerous to fly the planes. Or commercial aircraft flying from America, over the Atlantic, to Europe making it in record time.

We read about floods, avalanches, tornadoes and whirlwinds in unexpected places. Here in the UK it seems almost every weekend, over the past few months, there are warnings of torrential rain and strong winds.

Then we have Corona Virus, will we get it; won’t we get it? As a result, the financial institutions have almost gone into melt down. In Luke 21:26 Jesus says, ‘men’s hearts failing them for fear’. On the streets there’s panic buying, even though the government says we have more than enough food and supplies, to keep us going.

Yet when we truly put our trust in the Lord, we don’t need to panic, we don’t need to run around like headless chickens. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. The word fed here, means God is more than able to supply all our needs, He just asks us to put our trust in Him. Besides trusting God what part do we have to play? Let us do what is right and good. May this be our continuing experience.

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.
