  • “God is with us” | Glenbrook Presbyterian Church
    hope of rescue Shackleton and four other crew members set sail in a lifeboat in an effort to reach the island of South Georgia Traveling 800 miles through the world s worst seas they arrived only to discover the whaling station was on the other side of the island In order to rescue the remaining crew in time Shackleton and two of his men must cross on foot the treacherous cliffs of the island which were icy and forbidding vulnerable to sudden blizzards and hurricane winds The island s inhabitants considered the journey impossible Nevertheless Shackleton and his two partners crossed in 36 hours Shackleton s diary provides an interesting perspective on the South Georgia Island crossing I know that during that long and racking march of 36 hours over the unnamed mountains of South Georgia it seemed to me often that there were four not three I said nothing to my companions but afterwards Worsley said to me Boss I had a curious feeling that there was another person with us This experience of Sir Ernest Shackleton reminds me of the story of Shadrach Meshach and Abednego in the Book of Daniel chapter 3 who were thrown into the fiery furnace for refusing to bow down to a statue constructed by King Nebuchad nezzar of Babylon While they were in the furnace they were not consumed by the flames but instead were joined by a mysterious fourth person Who was that person Where did that person come from Was it an angel Was it a divine presence Was it even a pre existent Jesus Speculation abounds I think one theme that we can glean from this text for our own lives is that when we are facing adversity faith is believing that God is still there for us Jesus

  • How Long Lord | Glenbrook Presbyterian Church
    down they could damage her heart Through all of her health challenges Rachel never stopped trusting God but she couldn t help but wonder when God s promises to take care of her would come true Psalm 119 82 My eyes are straining to see your promises come true When will you comfort me NLT Perhaps Ezra the priest was the author of this lengthy psalm He was caught up in the Babylonian captivity Seventy years would pass before God would raise up a new ruler who would allow His people to return to their homeland Ezra would have the privilege of leading some of them back but he languished in sorrow for a number of years before he saw God s promise come true I too have meandered through lean periods when I wondered if God had forgotten His promises to me I ve never been homeless or had completely bare cabinets but I have lived in undesirable places and had less to eat than I wanted Like Rachel I ve endured medical issues that seemed to last forever and I ve wondered when God was going to come through with a healing And though God promises not to let temptations become overbearing there have been some that I didn t seem to see a way out of Though God s comfort occasionally appears slow in arriving it always comes in the correct measure and at the right moment He never forgets His promises nor reneges on them He always sends an answer to my prayers comforts me in my pain and assures me through my misunderstandings Let God s promises be your stronghold in life s difficult times Prayer Father we thank You for Your promises that are steadfast and sure Amen For more see Presbyterian Church in

  • Let There be Light! | Glenbrook Presbyterian Church
    first week there are dramatic improvements in the patient s moods and energy Of course the source of all light is our Heavenly Father who on the first day of creation spoke light into existence And God said Let there be light and there was light God saw that the light was good and he separated the light from the darkness God called the light day and the darkness he called night And there was evening and there was morning the first day Genesis 1 3 5 NIV As I reflect on this scripture passage it occurred to me that there are different sources of light in our lives and each brings illumination but also serves other purposes Sunlight for example is necessary for all growth on our planet Without sunlight photosynthesis could not occur Photosynthesis is a process used by plants and other organisms to convert light energy from the sun into chemical energy that can be later released to fuel the plant s growth and by extension the growth of all the animals and people who eat those plants Thus sunlight is vital for our survival Firelight especially before the dawn of our modern heating systems was similarly crucial for providing warmth from the winter chill and was the means to cook food Anyone who has enjoyed a campfire or sat in the warm glow of a fireplace knows it also has the ability to relax us as we stare into its flames Starlight also guided the wise men to our last source of light Christ himself The people walking in darkness have seen a great light on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned Isaiah 9 2 NIV If we keep our eyes fixed upon Christ and trust in Him

  • The Twelve Days of Christmas | Glenbrook Presbyterian Church
    6 with the feast of the Epiphany which is the revelation that God the Son has become a human baby called Jesus In our modern era Christmas is more about shopping and giving with December 25 being the day of revealing what we got and January 6 the day we find out how much we owe Boxing Day used to be the day when lords and ladies and other wealthy people gave Christmas boxes to their servants employees tenant farmers and tradesmen One medieval custom that has fallen out of practice is the Boy Bishop The verses above are called the Magnificat because it begins with the phrase My soul doth magnify the Lord KJV and it is the song Mary sings when she finds out that she will give birth to the Holy One of Israel It is a mystery that she will spend a lifetime contemplating During the feast of St Nicholas December 6 the Magnificat is read and at verse 52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones the bishop will step down and at but has lifted up the humble a boy will ascend to his seat He will be the acting bishop or head of the cathedral for part of the Christmas season We too like Mary are God bearers in that our incarnate Lord and Saviour lives within us But we like the poor Galatians to whom Paul wrote in love and exasperation have a tendency to wander off course Paul said to the Galatians and to us as well My dear children for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you how I wish I could be with you now and change my tone because I am perplexed about you Gal 4 19 20 When

  • The One who Lived Up To His Name | Glenbrook Presbyterian Church
    Christ the Lord Luke 2 11 Though we were created in the image God through the disobedience of Adam and Eve sin entered into our human condition resulting in separation and death The apostle Paul recognized the struggle that we all have with our sinful human nature when he examined his own life and wrote I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members Wretched man that I am Who will rescue me from this body of death Romans 7 23 The sins that we commit are symptomatic of our human nature captive to sin Who will rescue us Who will save us Who will forgive us We live in a world that is characterized in many places by corruption greed and violence so it is easy to point the finger and blame things on the state of the world But maybe the problem is that the world is also made up of people like ourselves Unless we understand that Jesus came into the world to save us from our sin Christmas will not be much more than a sentimental occasion or a consumer driven holiday To understand his birth we need to celebrate his coming to earth in Bethlehem but we also need to travel the short distance to Jerusalem It is there that on the cross God dealt with our sin once and for all It is there that Jesus lived up to his name The greatest need of every human heart is to be saved Christmas is about a baby born in Bethlehem sent into this world by a loving God to become the tender lamb of God who would die in our place Christians celebrated the birth
