Our Pastor's Devotional - February 2020


In the chorus of the hymn ‘Trust and Obey,’ J.H. Sammis writes, ‘Trust and obey, for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.’ The writer counsels us to trust in Jesus, but can we trust Him, can we trust God?

Throughout the Bible we read of characters who put their trust in God and God didn’t let them down. In the first book of the Bible there was a man called Noah, God called him to build a boat, because of an impending flood, even though it had never rained. Noah spent 125 years of his life building the boat and warning the people of the coming flood. When the boat was finally finished it was large enough to take two of every species of animals and as many people who wanted to get on board. When it was time to board the boat, even though the animals had miraculously appeared, there was only Noah and his family. They trusted God and were saved through the flood.

Daniel trusted God. Even though he was falsely accused and thrown into the lion’s den, because Daniel trusted God, God sent an angel to close the mouths of the lions and Daniel was safely brought through the experience. Daniel's three friends, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, trusted God and wouldn’t bow down to king Nebuchadnezzar’s golden image. As a result, they were thrown into the fiery furnace, but Jesus was there with them and the flames didn’t touch or harm them, the flames didn’t even singe a hair of their heads.

Job went through a terrible time, but even in his pain he cried out, ‘Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him:’ [Job 13:15]. Because Job trusted God, when his time of trial came to a close the Bible says, ‘So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning:’ [Job 42:12].

King David, wrote Psalm 91, paraphrased: when we put our trust in God, He will protect us, even though all around us we see the people fall. In verse 7 the New Living Translation of the Bible says: ‘Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.’ Then in verse 10, ‘No evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.’

In this world of uncertainty, why not put your trust in God, He is only a prayer a way? King Solomon, the wisest person ever to live, wrote in the book of proverbs a verse which will help you in your daily walk, ‘Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.’ [Proverbs 3:5]. Be blessed, as you go through this week and every week until Jesus comes.

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.
