Message from the Moderator, Summer 2014

 

 

“I was glad when they said unto me,

Let us go into the house of the Lord.

Because of the house of the Lord

Our God I will seek thy good.”

Psalm 122:1&9

 

 

In Ecclesiastes 3:1, we read,

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”

 

This reflects on the varied seasons of life-on-earth experiences. Times of gladness and times of sadness and distress, and all have a purpose in our life. Each is part of life’s lesson plan for our maturing in spiritual wisdom. All are to be expected and welcomed.

 

At this present time, we look forward to the earth cycle of summer in the northern part of the globe. It is a time when friends and family members join in fellowship and celebrations. A time of travel and visiting, the outdoor barbeques, weddings, birthdays, and also, the worry of hospital visits and sad farewells to those who are promoted to glory.

 

Throughout scripture, we are given guidance on conduct and attitudes, regardless of life’s circumstances. In the Epistle of James, chapter 1, verse 12, “Blessed is the man (person) that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.” This informs us that there will be temptations, there will be trials and disappointments, that everyone will endure. Endurance is the key. Prayer and faith will sustain. Life is inclusive in all these matters.

 

We are further instructed in verse 22, “Be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only…” which is consistent with our Principle of Personal Responsibility. It may not always be convenient, and perhaps is seldom convenient, to be helpful to someone in need. It is, however, always necessary to be a “doer of the word”. It is necessary to be timely in helping someone in need. It is necessary for our own spiritual growth, to respond to the need, regardless of any personal inconvenience. Imagine saying to someone who may be troubled or distressed, “Can you hold on for (whatever time… a few hours or days or more) until it is more convenient for me, and then I will be there to help you.”

 

We each have the present moment. We hold memories of the past and hopes for the future. The past cannot be changed. The future is a dream. Now, the present, is the time of action. Let us seize the moment to act for the greater good. This may be the only time.

 

May God Bless you, In His Service, and grant you peace.
