Welcome to Derriford Church Blog

In Philippians 2:25, we read that Paul sent Epaphroditus back to the Philippian Church after taking care of his needs.When people are hurting, they need your support until they can get back on their feet again. Epaphroditus is introduced by Paul as “…my brother, fellow worker, and fellow soldier…and the one who ministered to my need…” The passage goes on to say, “Welcome him with Christian love and with great joy, and give him the honour that people like him deserve. For he risked his life for the work of Christ, and he was at the point of death while doing for me what you could not do from far away.” You may ask, “What was Paul lacking?” Encouragement! And who brought it? “Epaphroditus, a brother, a fellow worker, and a soldier.” Epaphroditus worked side by side with Paul and he fought for him. What an asset he was! We look for such people in times of crisis because they lift us. So today ask God to make you an encourager whose words and actions bring comfort and support to others.
There is no greater calling!

Did anyone watch “Miniature Britain”? (BBC 1 December 12th) A microscope-camera 7000 times more powerful than the human eye showed amazing images such as pollen grains trapped on the curved hairs of a honey bee, the claws on a caterpillar’s foot, and the scales on a moth’s wing that protect the delicate membrane. Wonderful mysteries of God’s creation revealed to our physical eyes. It prompted me to read a passage that I love, Isaiah 40: 12 – 31. It says, “Do you not know? Have you not heard?” and goes on to illustrate the mighty works of God. Isaiah describes God’s power to create, His provision to sustain and His presence to help. “He stretches out the heavens like a canopy…He brings out the starry host one by one….He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” Images again of God’s amazing creation but this time focusing our spiritual eyes, revealing His all-encompassing love for us. Read it and see what you think!
God bless,

Dear friends
Don’t be afraid to say “yes”! Whilst we are often told that we should say “no” to things, we should always say yes to God. When we feel a calling on our lives, a new gift to exercise, a new ministry to be involved in, a new area of service, let our yes be yes. However, we are sometimes afraid to say yes because we don’t think we’re good enough, skilled enough, old enough, young enough, spiritual enough, tough enough, etc… and our answer is often turned into a “no”. We allow our self-doubts and Satan’s lies to deflect us from the perfect path God has for us. When we do this we miss out on the opportunities God puts our way and also miss out on the blessing of seeing his Kingdom grow through those opportunities. Therefore our answer to God should always be, “with your help Lord, YES!”
With love in Jesus

Dear Friends
A blessed New Year to you all. Traditionally the 6th January is the day the church remembers the Wise Men bringing their gifts to Jesus. Their story, though brief in scripture, is an amazing one full of risks. The first risk was to trust the prophesies of old, the second was to follow a star into the unknown, the third was to go on the journey into potentially hostile territory with only the hope that things would work out right. They also met with a King who was more interested in self-preservation than worship and who had murder on his mind. They then took the ultimate risk of bowing down and worshipping the Christ, a child. These men, wise as they were also knew that with wisdom comes risk taking. What is the riskiest thing you could do for God in this New Year? Why not step out of your comfort-zone and go for it, you might be amazed at what happens…
Love in Jesus

As I write this I am conscious that we are very close to the start of a new year. And, as it comes uponus,we may feel the need to consider entering into some kind of ‘Jordan’ experience. That is, an experience where we put the past behind us and we cross over into something new and refreshing that God may have prepared for us.
The problem is that old things, old ways, things of the past, tend to be comfortable whilst new things and new ways tend to be strange and sometimes frightening. Indeed,not all change is pleasant. But, if we are being led to a better place by the one who loves us deeply, there really is no need to fear it, especially when we hear HIS voice clearly saying to us “Don’t be afraid,I will be with you, and I will help you.”

As we come this morning to share in the children dressing our Christmas tree, we are now well into Advent. For most, this time is simply a preparation for Christmas and may result in last minute shopping and some stressful times. However Advent should be a period of waiting, preparation, hope, judgement, Kingdom building and remembering. For Christmas is more than just a mere birthday party, it is also a celebration of all that is to come! Isaiah compares Jesus to a bright light, “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; on those who lived in a land of deep darkness a light has shined.” Look at it in these four ways: 1. Light at the end of the tunnel (Hope in despair); 2. Light that guides (Preparation); 3. Light that reveals (Judgement); 4. Light that transforms (Kingdom building). How are you preparing for the celebration of our Saviour’s birth?

Dear Friends
Today, traditionally in the Church calendar, is the day of Christ the King. Of course we should celebrate Christ’s kingship every day, but let’s spend a moment considering what this means. The king is a person who rules over a kingdom and the people who choose to live there are subject to his rule. He is their Lord and Master. In Old Testament times, when a kingdom was invaded, the conquering king would set out rules saying what he expected from the people. If they kept these laws the king promised to protect them. God set up a similar agreement with the Ten Commandments. Jesus adds to this the new commandment to love one another as he loves us. As citizens in God’s Kingdom we need to be living and faithful witnesses to God’s commandments so that others might see and feel the benefit of his rule and reign in our lives. A citizen of God’s Kingdom is a person who allows the Jesus who is King and Saviour to influence their everyday life and turn it into a way of living that shows the love of God. How will you show the Kingship of Jesus in your life this week?
With love in Christ the King

I wonder if you are taking advantage of our new “Oasis” Café facility? I have taken time out of my kitchen to have a couple of lunches and some coffee and cake – I met some ladies who work at our local hairdressers, seen some of our young people working a shift and learning new skills. I was also present when one of our local councillors came along for a coffee and chat. It’s a really good place to enjoy some relaxation and conversation. There are records in the Bible of Jesus sharing food with friends (and strangers too) – He even invited himself to eat with a Tax Collector and that made a massive difference to the life of Zaccheus! St Paul in Romans 12 and in 1 Peter exhorts us “to share with others and practice hospitality” and “to offer hospitality to one another.” Do pray and give support to this new ministry of fellowship and sharing for Sue and Helen R. and all the volunteers. May it be a blessing and witness to God’s love and glory to all who come.

When we look at leadership in the church, you shouldn’t be overlooked because of your age, your gender, your nationality, your education or your financial status. People will try to put you down, but if you trust God He will lift you up. Timothy started preaching in his teens. He became Paul’s travelling companion, which was no small honour. But in those days, society said you didn’t come into maturity until you were thirty, therefore Timothy wasn’t qualified for leadership. Since Timothy was facing criticism, Paul wrote, ‘ You have been taught the Holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus.’(2 Timothy 3:15). Timothy was nurtured in God’s Word and grounded in the truth. ‘I remember your genuine faith; for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you.’ (2 Timothy 1:5). So Paul writes to the Philippian church and says: ‘If the Lord Jesus is willing, I hope to send Timothy to you soon for a visit…. I have no one else like Timothy, who genuinely cares about your welfare. All the others care only for themselves and not for what matters to Jesus Christ. But you know how Timothy has proved himself. Like a son with his father, he has served with me in preaching the Good News.’ (Philippians 3:19-22). The right to work in God’s service is not determined by age, but by your experience with God, your growth in grace and in His Word.

On the night of the last supper with his disciples Jesus spent time reassuring his disciples. He knew what would happen to him tomorrow, he would be falsely accused, he would be mocked, whipped and endure a horrible, painful death. Yet his focus was on his disciples and preparing them for what was coming. His first words “Don’t let your heart be troubled”, uttered in those circumstances, have to be the most challenging to those who are going through difficult times. Yet he did not allow for any “get out”, his command to not allow our hearts to be troubled still stands. (John 14 v1-3) Proverbs 4 v23 tells us to “guard our hearts”, how do we do this? By applying the truth of Scripture to our lives, by prayer, by praising God for who he is. Try reading Psalm 23, out loud, every day this week, believe what it says and thank God for what he has done for you, just in this psalm.”
