A letter from our minister.
MARCH 2020 - from the church magazine.
It’s felt at times like February’s storms have been never-ending – between the wind, rain, hail and snow – the weather has been extremely challenging, though Glasgow has been much less affected than many other parts of the country.
I’m very conscious that some members of our congregation have also been facing seemingly never-ending storms of a different variety – whether due to physical or mental health issues, bereavement, challenging workplaces, difficult relationships, debt or any number of other causes.
But, when we turn to our Lord in worship, Isaiah reminds us that the Lord will provide shelter in the storm – helping us to keep going until the storm has passed.
You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat.
Isaiah then goes on to show us the wonderful future that awaits us once all of life’s storms have passed and we’re gathered together on his holy mountain:
On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine - the best of meats and the finest of wines.
On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death for ever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The LORD has spoken. In that day they will say, ‘Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.’
So let’s continue to put our faith in the Lord through all the storms of life and heed Isaiah’s encouragement to rejoice in the Lord and be glad in his salvation.
Wishing you every blessing for March,
