The Perfect Gift – this Christmas

As we enter December perhaps you are already wondering what will be the Perfect Gift for a Family member or even a Friend.

We are presented with so many options of things we are told we need or should have and yet the reality is we don’t need that much to live on from day to day.

We also live in a world where we like to receive things instantly, we seem to have forgotten how to wait for things, so even if we find the “perfect gift” the person may already have it.

The Bible however does tell us of the “Perfect Gift” that we can all have and we don’t need to wait till Christmas to have it. The Gift is Eternal Life, made available through the birth and death of the Lord Jesus.

As we think about the Perfect Gift think of the following:

GGiven (the Gift of eternal life has been given, all gift are given)
IIndividual (the gift is for you as an individual – we individually need God’s salvation)
FFree (a gift is free, you wont be given a gift this Christmas with the receipt and told to pay for your gift before you can have it. That is the same with God’s Gift)
TTake it (the perfect gift becomes yours when you take it. Will you be leaving your gifts this Christmas around the Christmas tree?)

For the wages (result) of our sin is death (eternal separation from God) but the Gift (perfect free gift) of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord)

LOVE COME DOWN – Friday 15th December 6pm Children’s Christmas Production

Join us at 6pm to listen to the Children re-tell the Christmas Story “LOVE COME DOWN”

God has always loved this World despite the fact that “mankind” on the whole has gone his own way and disappointed and disobeyed God.

LOVE COME DOWN reminds us of the birth of God’s Son, the Lord Jesus, into this world, born as a Saviour for you and me. Let’s not miss the real reason of Christmas as we celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus and why it was necessary for Jesus to come into this World.

Please come and join in with us as we sing Christmas choruses and traditional carols throughout the production.

ALL CHILDREN THAT COME WILL RECEIVE A FREE GOODIE BAG

Pilgrim Pete writes – Dinosaur Sandwich Anyone?

Two of them, each the size of a London Bus, locked in roaring battle, one with it’s jaws sunk in the other’s spine. No time to guess the winner. Sudden instant freeze frame – bang! They’re fossils. WOW….

Mrs Icthyosaurus decides the moment had come to give birth. Nearly there – when – Bam! Freeze frame again, and there they are for ever, mother and baby-fossils.

Large fish off the north of Scotland, decides which smaller fish to swallow for breakfast. It’s a tight fit, folks-nearly there – Suddenly – POW! Freeze frame again, a half finished meal, dinner and dish fossilized forever.

“OK fine… I get the idea. Sudden interruption of normal earth life by some remote world – wide cataclysm. A strong point. But why then does the media constantly tell us that fossils are the result of dead things quietly fading away and getting covered with two millimeters of sediment every year. Surely these scientists know!”

Ian Campbell gave three wonderful hour long powerpoint presentations at the Gospel Hall several years ago was waiting for a classroom to become free when he heard a young lady teacher with a group of juniors around her. “Now this,” she said “is how fossils are made. When a fish dies it sinks to the bottom and very slowly the sediment builds up over it. One day many hundreds of years later – there’s a fossil. What about that?”

One little girl at the back spoke up. “please miss, my goldfish died last week – and he floated to the top!” It’s what fishes do.

Whether it produced a dinosaur sandwich or the thirty six inch diameter tusks of a trumpeting mammoth instantly arrested in the prime of life while grazing in some green pre-glacial valley, some instant cataclysmic deluge called a sudden halt to life on earth, swirled myriads of tonnes of readymix sediment to every corner of the globe, leaving a decisive, frightening silence. Purbeck marble, anyone?

Fossils are only part of the story. There is the human knee, a unique piece of engineering which could never in billions of years have evolved from that of an ape. And the jellyfish, who could never mutate into anything else because its DNA keeps sending it around in circles. (mutations always lose information)

We came home form the third night of Mr Campbell’s presentations thinking that some of these anti-God, millions of years theories sound somewhat old hat.

Dr. Kent Hovind is offering $250,000 to anyone who can give scientific proof for evolution.

Pilgrim Pete writes – A Unique Bookmark

It floated out at my feet as I opened the book…. what a lovely idea for a bookmark! I turned the kestrel’s feather in my hands. A feather is a miracle! Whales don’t have feathers, animals don’t have feathers!

Feathers provide buoyancy, insulation, weather protection and are in an aero-dynamic form. They provide wing and tail area without extra weight. The right feathers grow on the right bird in the right place – even to consideration of colour. And most miraculous of all – they grow from the skin of the bird without the slightest discomfort.

Feathers for flying vary in size from less than an inch to more than a foot in length. They vary in colour – no bird ever grows someone else’s feathers.

Did you know that every feather ever made was made by God. God knows every bird that flies, every bird that falls, he knows them, but they don’t know Him.

The bird who lost the feather I found never knew anything about me, but I know quite a lot about him. That’s because people are made by God, made to be like Him. The trouble is, people have a problem. We are disobedient to God. If we do nothing about this then in a coming day God will say “I never knew you”

We know about wrong from a very early age. In order to put this right you need to believe FIVE things.

FIRST – That your smallest sin has separated you from God
SECOND – There is no “good-work” you can do to put this right
THIRD – That God Himself has provided a remedy to put this right
FOURTH – That YOU must take up this remedy for YOURSELF
FIFTH – You must believe on the Lord Jesus Christ – asking forgiveness from the wrong you have done and you will be SAVED.

As I put the Kestrel’s feather back in-between the pages and return the book to the shelf. I wonder if perhaps someone else will find the feather and share it’s wonders.

Mayday Mayday Mayday – do you need help?

As we enter into May I was wondering about this term Mayday!

According to Wikipedia

Mayday is an emergency procedure word used internationally as a distress signal in voice procedure radio communications.

It is used to signal a life-threatening emergency primarily by aviators and mariners, but in some countries local organizations such as firefighters, police forces, and transportation organizations also use the term. The call is always given three times in a row (“Mayday Mayday Mayday”) to prevent its being mistaken for some similar-sounding phrase under noisy conditions, and to distinguish an actual Mayday call from a message about a Mayday call

The Bible warns us that we are in distress (a life-threatening emergency) and need to call out Mayday due to this danger we find ourselves in. In the incident in Matthew ch 14 vs 29-31 when the disciple Peter was walking on the sea to Jesus (because Jesus the Son of God could do these things) Peter takes his eye of the Lord Jesus and starts to sink.

Peter was crying Mayday Mayday Mayday when he said Lord Save Me! He didn’t try to save himself, he didn’t call upon the disciples he cried to Jesus.

Jesus stretched forth his hand and saved him immediately.

Did you realise that you have offended God, the creator of this World in which we live. The Bible states that all have sinned that includes me and you and as a result will face the judgment of God in a coming day. The good news of the Gospel is that God in his love to mankind has provided a way whereby we can cry Mayday – with acknowledgement of our distress and need we can call to God through his Son the Lord Jesus and be saved.

Jesus died on a cross at Calvary but what is important is that God punished his only Son for the wrong things that we have done so if we say we are sorry and ask for our sins to be forgiven we can know God’s Salvation.

This May…. think seriously about the MAYDAY call. Have you made it?

EASTER – What does it mean?

In 1 Corinthians ch 15 v 20 the Apostle Paul writes “but now is Christ risen from the dead” he is discussing the fact that if Christ didn’t rise from the dead then our faith is in vain and we are still in our sins.

In this World of uncertainty and false dawns of an improving World the reality that we face is that this World will never improve but continue to deteriorate (this is due to Sin – disobedience towards God). The Bible makes it very clear about the impact of sin, however the Bible also tells us about the EASTER story which is totally AMAZING!

God provides a way back into a right relationship with Him through His only begotten Son. He willingly allowed His Son Jesus Christ to be taken by those who He had created, to be humiliated and even spat upon then Crucified so you and I can be in Heaven in a coming day.

What are you celebrating this Easter? An Egg reminds us of the potential for NEW LIFE? Do you have NEW LIFE in the Lord Jesus?

He died was buried and rose again and because he LIVES you can LIVE to. On the cross at Calvary Jesus paid the price of our sin so we can know the forgiveness of a loving God. What an AMAZING Easter story.

Pilgrim Pete writes… Discoveries discovered!….

Sir James Simpson, the discoverer of chloroform, made many other scientific discoveries. Towards the end of his life he was asked which of all these was the greatest of them all. Without hesitation the famous scientist replied…

“The greatest discovery I ever made was that I was a lost guilty sinner, and that Jesus Christ the Saviour of sinners died to save me.”

Lord Kelvin in his teaching days was asked by a student which of all his wonderful discoveries he considered the most valuable? he replied…..

“To me the most valuable of all the discoveries I ever made was when I discovered my Saviour in Jesus Christ.”

We would love to help you discover Jesus Christ

Pilgrim Pete writes – Calling Kids! Have you ever wondered why?

Have you ever wondered why?

Why is it that Planet Earth is so beautiful?

Everything about it is perfect – there is nothing like it in all of the Universe of Space but why is this?

The Sun is a small star – not very special as stars go… But our Sun does have a family of 8 planets. Seven of them very strange indeed.

Mercury is the closest to the Sun – this planet always reminds me of a bar-b-que! It flies roasting around the Sun every 88 days! A place where there is no water no air Not a happy place to be but why is EARTH so different?

“God who made the Earth,
The air, the sky the sea,
Who gave the Light its birth –
He cares for me!

Pilgrim Pete will be back…..
