Pastor's Pen
November 2015
by Pastor Alan Darby

Dear Friends,

Yesterday morning I was in the midst of our small group, Wednesday Morning Men’s Breakfast Bible Study discussing Jesus’ command to “Seek for the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all things will be added unto you.” In our conversation we were impressed with the truth of Jesus’ priority on “righteousness.” It was good to be reminded of the Lord’s desire for obedience, holiness, and the right living in our daily lives. It seems, these days, we talk a lot about what God can do for us and the good feelings His blessings produce in us, but can be neglectful of responsibility for righteous living in obedience to His will. We worry about so many things in this world, and need to be reminded of the primacy of seeking Him and His righteousness.

Marriage Moment

*Hide and Seek*

Consider this verse from Genesis 3:8-10

"And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden. And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, “Where art thou?” And he said, “I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.”

Were Adam and Eve hiding from God because they knew they were naked? Or was it really because they were ashamed of what they had done? Ever since that one act of willful disobedience, human beings have done things they knew were wrong. Many people are so broken they don’t even see the error of their ways. Others are proud of their misdeeds; they are unrepentant, reveling in their sin. Regardless, we have all sinned, and fallen short of the glory of God.

Psalm 139:7-10 Your Spirit is everywhere I go. I cannot escape your presence. If I go up to heaven, you will be there. If I go down to the place of death, you will be there. If I go east where the sun rises or go to live in the west beyond the sea, even there you will take my hand and lead me.Your strong right hand will protect me.

A popular song from a few years ago by David Crowder band described the love of God as "jealous for me. Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy" As we all know hurricanes are powerful. In fact they are said to be the most powerful of the natural disasters. Anything caught in its path is affected greatly and the effects of the storm are felt for a long time. To be in the path of a hurricane means that your life stops as you are impacted by wind, rain and water.
