2 Samuel 23:5

1 September 2019

“Is not my house right with God? Has He not made with me an everlasting covenant, arranged and secured in every part?” (NIV)

They say that a person’s dying words are often more candid than those they spoke in life for the simple reason that the looming reality of death produces a candour that makes people often see and assess their life in a different light. The Scripture which I have just quoted is part of David’s dying words to his family and friends and what is interesting in it is his emphasis upon what he describes as an everlasting covenant which is ordered and secured in every part What is this everlasting covenant?

If you are reading this bulletin then the chances are that you are in a small minority at this time. You are a part of a segment of our society that values going to either chapel or to church and sees the benefit of setting aside time each week to worship God and to listen to His Word being preached.

Sadly such practice has declined, and for those who are the Lord's people and desire to see His name honoured and glorified we may look at the fortunes of the church at large and long to see God intervening once again as He has in time past and the spiritual tide turning in our nation.

One such occasion

As we have slipped almost imperceptibly into the month of May, summer is now not far away. I love this time of year, the longer evenings, the sudden explosion of growth and greenery all around us.

In Pembroke we are blessed with some beautiful surroundings, walking the other evening around Carew millpond and seeing the light cast upon the waters, it is hard not to feel the tranquillity such a scene conveys.

This last winter was not too harsh however in some years the arrival of the spring heralds a welcome break from the harshness of the winter.

In our spiritual walk as Christians we can also experience these contrasts.

I am sure that most of us are pretty fed up with hearing the word Brexit.
Almost daily another round of delays and alternative draught plans or no plans are paraded before us and discussed and debated as to what the potential implications of a no deal might be.
Just this last weekend I stepped into a shop in Tenby to buy one item, to emerge over half an hour later, the reason?
A long discussion with the proprietor over Brexit.
It seems that this topic is dominating so much of the news and so many peoples thoughts at this time.

The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light. Those who dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them the light has shined.
Isaiah 9 vs 2

As we come to the end of one year and approach the new year we have much to give thanks for.
As the psalmist says in psalm 23  "Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." And that promise holds fast for God's people whatever the future might hold. We can trust in His Mercy and Trust in His faithfulness to uphold us through thick and thin.

"Those who love deeply never grow old, they may die of old age, but they die young".
Benjamin Franklin.

I have often reflected how much we should value the elderly. In today's society we can often exalt youth, sometimes at the expense of valuing and appreciating those who are older. Of course the youth have some wonderful advantages and qualities, like their hunger for life, energy, zeal and sense of adventure and risk taking which can be infectious and a great blessing to any church.

In the Bible I love the story of the persistent widow.

The widow comes before a judge who is clearly corrupt and asks for her case to be settled fairly, but the judge refuses. The widow continues to come back to him again and again and eventually because of her persistence, she wears him down to where he is forced to give her the justice that she sought.

The harvest is past, the summer is ended, And we are not saved.” Jeremiah 8vs20

This scripture comes at the end of a passage in the prophet Jeremiah, where the prophet is lamenting the fact that in his day the people had cast off God's word and had given themselves to covetousness and materialism and still the false prophets were saying peace peace, when there was no peace.
