Pastor's Pen
March 2016
by Pastor Alan Darby

Dear Friends,

What did it, or would it, take to awaken faith or grow your faith in Christ? Perhaps you came to believe through the witness of a friend or a sermon based on God’s word, or the conviction of the Holy Spirit as you read a passage of Holy Scripture. The Bible says, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.” Clearly, the “seed” of new life is sown as the Word is planted in our hearts. During this last season of the church, we have been spending time in God’s Word, specifically the Gospel of John, growing our faith through the wonderful “I AM” statements of Jesus. I hope this Lenten Study has added greatly to your growing faith in “The God We Can Know”.

Marriage Moment
Brian Collis
March 2016

From Springsteen - "When we kiss.... ooh oooh, fire" to Johnny Cash - "got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout" and "I fell into a burning ring of fire" love has always been described with metaphors based on fire, burning with heat and light. Even God, via Solomon's pen in Song of Songs 8:6-7 says:

[Love] burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame

Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away.

Fire is a powerful force of nature, with equal potential to give life andtake it, so it is fitting that love and passion are described as having a similar nature. In James 3:5 it says:

Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.

Fire must be taken seriously, and respected lest it grow and rage out of control. Over and over in the Song of Songs Solomon writes "Do not awaken love until it pleases." Depending on the translation it could also be read "until it desires" or "until the time is right." In this context marriage is like a fireplace: an environment where fire can be safely lit, tended and stoked until it gives off warmth and light. Especially after some time has passed, marriage relationships that have "gone cold" are said to need to be “spiced up,” that the “spark” needs to be rediscovered and rekindled.

Youth

10"Be careful. Don’t think these little children are not important. I tell you that these children have angels in heaven. And those angels are always with my Father in heaven.]

12“If a man has 100 sheep, but one of the sheep is lost, what will he do? He will leave the other 99 sheep on the hill and go look for the lost sheep. Right? 13And if he finds the lost sheep, he is happier about that one sheep than about the 99 sheep that were never lost. I can assure you, 14 in the same way your Father in heaven does not want any of these little children to be lost." Matthew 18:10-14

March Madness, the annual NCAA basketball tournament that captures the attention of many throughout this entire month, has begun. Just about every day you can expect to see amazing performances, dazzling plays, last minute buzzer beaters, and of course, the upsets. We love upsets don't we? There's something special about a small school overcoming the odds and shocking the big school powerhouses. They're called Cinderella teams and their victories are something magical.
