The Pastors’ Pen


As always, there’s a lot happening in the life of the SCPC church family!
 
Last weekend, 26 of the young adults spent two nights at Old Bonalbo, hearing talks from Scott Curtis from 1 Corinthians 5-7 on complex relationships. From all reports it was a very valuable time, both in the word and with one another. Why not ask someone who went along to share with you about what they learnt?
 
This weekend our marriage course begins. Twenty one couples have registered for the course so far. Please be praying for all those planning on attending, that God would be strengthening their love and respect for each other.
 
Looking further ahead, on the 11th of September we’ll be enjoying Celebration Sunday together. Make sure you lock the date in your diaries and don’t forget to send in your photos and your stories of God’s love from the past year to office@scpc.org.au as we reflect on, and celebrate, God’s work amongst us over this last year.
 
I hope as well that you have been benefiting from our time together in the book of Ephesians each week. I’ve been hearing many encouraging stories of people growing in their appreciation for, and understanding of, their union with Christ. Perhaps you could pray this prayer of Paul’s from Ephesians 3:16-19 for someone else in your Gospel Community today?
 
“16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

My Shepherd

Towering mountains shielding me from the warmth of the sun as I walk by a bubbling, icy stream… just part of the picture that conjures in my mind as I read the beautiful imagery in Psalm 23. There is something very picturesque about this psalm, yet behind the imagery I find deeper meaning and the essence of the gospel.

When I think of the Garden of Eden, I think of a flat plane and a lush garden – abundant, fruitful, free – with God, in communion with God and all that he provides. Here, as we find ourselves in a deep valley, there is still much beauty, still provision, yet all in the mountainous shadow of sin that separates us from such closeness with God. Yet despite that shadow and separation, God in His mercy, in His love, has come into the valley with us. He guides us, protects us and provides what we need as we navigate the sometimes tricky path and worldliness that can get in our way. God hems us  – leads us (v2), is with us for comfort (v4) and follows us (v6) so that we may navigate this life until that time when we come out from behind the shadow of sin and are again in close communion with Him, in the place He has prepared for us in heaven.
