Editorial

Following Phil’s excellent sermon based on Romans 12: 1 – 8, I was prompted to read the next section of the chapter, verses 9 – 21. It comes under the heading “Marks of the True Christian” and sums up brilliantly how we should live out Jesus’s teaching.

I want to pick out 4 phrases that for me highlight essential strands of our discipleship:

  1. v. 11 “Never be lacking in zeal but keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord.” Above all, we need to keep our eyes on Jesus and serve Him in whatever ways we can.
  2. v. 16 “Live in harmony with one another.” That speaks about cooperation, tolerance and encouragement of our brothers and sisters in our Christian family, local and further afield, working together for God’s purposes.
  3. v. 18 “Live at peace with everyone.” We need to be reaching out to the world around us, not judging or criticising, but aiming to share the peace and love that Jesus gives.
  4. v. 21 “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” We have to guard our own hearts against all that is negative and remember we have life and strength through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Get the full newsletter from our website at “derrifordchurch.co.uk”

Our discipleship looks first to God, than to fellow Christians, the world at large and also to ourselves, the four interwoven strands holding us close to Jesus.

I urge you to read verses 9 – 21 for yourselves!

Can I also take this opportunity to say please come to the AGM on Monday 21st July. It’s where we can celebrate all that has been happening at DURC in the past year and also seek God’s guidance for the coming months. As we wait for a new minister we want to make sure we are a fit and active “body” for them to join!

With every blessing,

– Carrie Bowman

I believe that the inevitable period of waiting for God to call our next Minister is proving good for our church. As everyone combines their efforts to ensure that we remain a vibrant Christian community, we can only grow in confidence as we see members leading and serving and finding God-given strength as they do so.

My personal regret is in being unable to take a physical part for a while due to my health problems. But being ‘laid aside’ doesn’t mean I can’t pray! While I must possess my soul in (im)patience(!) for now I hope to be back before too long. I must thank all of you who have sent cards and/or visited, phoned all of which has been a great encouragement. And I have been experiencing that what Paul claimed in

2 Corinthians 12 v. 9, namely “My grace is sufficient for you” as a reality.

And finally let us all remember, “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” (1 Corinthians 12 v.27)

May God continue to bless us at Derriford as we each take our part in the church’s life and forward progress.

As we worship God and work together for Him here at Derriford, encouragement of one another is an important ingredient of what we do.
If someone speaks an encouraging word to us, we feel really positive about what we are trying to achieve, and if we are struggling it perhaps gives us the impetus to keep going.

We know we don’t do anything in our own strength, and that we rely on the Holy Spirit to enable and equip us. We can find passages in Scripture that just remind and reassure us that it is God who is the source of all our encouragement.

Isaiah 41:10 says, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Matthew 10:29-31 says, “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

Isn’t it wonderful that the God we worship is the ‘LIVING and TRUE’ God —- a God of abounding love, a God of great compassion,a God of incredible mercy, and a God who is always faithful and who will never leave us or forsake us.
Whilst this is a truth we need to fully embrace, there is another related truth that we also need to embrace. It’s the truth that the gods of this world are, in fact, empty and vain ,and we are strongly warned against chasing after them.
Now these two truths are somewhat embedded in the following short poem which I remember reading a while ago:–
The gods of this world are empty and vain,
They cannot give peace to one’s hearts,
The living and true one deserves all our love,
From Jesus may we never depart.

‘For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink.’ (Matthew 25: 42.)
Some statistics: Since we began to support the North Plymouth Food Bank in September 2012 I have been able to deliver 17 car-loads of provisions, one load almost every month. These contributions are gratefully received at the distribution centre and I am assured are a lifeline to those struggling to make ends meet in crisis situations. The average load has been made up of soups, baked beans, tinned fruit, tinned ready meals, pasta, rice, tinned vegetables, fish and stews, cartons of UHT milk, sugar and teabags, jars of cooking sauces and preserves. In every load there are also other items, some quite unexpected.

This giving is undertaken as a Christian response to Jesus’ words quoted at the start of this article. We never see those who receive, or experience their gratitude for help in trouble. But Jesus sees and is glad that we take heed of his words.

Even if we are ourselves on a tight budget it is no real hardship to at least add one extra item for Food Bank to our shopping list. Many are even more generous in what they feel they can afford to give.

Have you contributed to Food bank? Boxes are provided in the Church and in the entrance to the Hall.

If not, may I ask you to consider whether you can

manage to give something from now on for as long as the need continues?
And to those who have been filling the boxes so generously, thank you for taking Jesus’ words seriously.

– John Goodspeed
