EXTEND Update - April 1, 2020

No April Fools here! Watch this video and check out the progress being made on the new building.

There’s a famous statement that many Christians believe: “The Lord helps those who help themselves.” Many of us have been successful getting ourselves out of tough spots. But this feels like a new kind of stuck, where we don’t have what it takes to make it out on our own. Interestingly, Charles Spurgeon turned the famous quotation on its head: “God helps those who cannot help themselves.” This perspective doesn’t fit our radical individualism, but it does fit the narrative of Scripture. The truth is, when we believe that we can help ourselves, we don’t look for the Lord’s help. We still think we can pull ourselves out of “the pit of destruction” and “the miry bog” (Psalm 40:2). But when we come to the end of ourselves and realize that there’s no way to get ourselves unstuck, we finally own our desperation and cry out for rescue.

Would you ladies like to be encouraged in scripture? Are you finding yourself looking something to do? Our Precepts class is starting a 4 week study of Esther on April 14. What is your purpose? Why does God place you in certain places during specific times? God is sovereign, providential and always working in the affairs of His creation even when we are unaware. Esther attained royalty for "such a time as this." She allowed God to use her in difficult situations. Are you willing to do the same? There will be no meetings for this study. Audio recordings of the lectures will be posted online to our women's audio page on our website pcpc.org/women.
Books are $10, sign up and purchase by going to our website.

Over the next many weeks we are going to set aside Wednesdays as a day of prayer and fasting (for those who are able), in order to help us praise God for who He is, to confess our sins before Him, to express our gratitude for all He has and is giving us, and to help us cry out to Him in our time of need. There are many ways you can spend time in prayer. One simple and specific way you can pray to God is to use the well-known acronym A.C.T.S. as a way of moving through different seasons of prayer. Go to https://pcpc.org/day-of-prayer-and-fasting/ where we have more info including specific ways you can pray today!

While the Men’s Tuesday Morning Bible Study is not able to gather together in person at the church, we will post a video lesson and personal reflection questions at pcpc.org/men each week on Tuesday at 7:00 a.m. Today Matt Fray teaches on Faith for the Future. Table groups are encouraged to connect online (ie. Zoom.us, FaceTime, or other audio/video conferencing software).

"A Very Present Power" Special Service (Ps. 46:1-11) [9:30am] - Mark Davis

"A Very Present Power" Special Service (Ps. 46:1-11) [9:30am] - Mark Davis

"A Very Present Power"
In times of trouble, we all preach to ourselves. What sermon are you delivering? What sermon are you listening to? The message is either centered on all that is wrong and how it is going to get worse, revealing your very limited power and promoting an increasing lack of peace. Or, it is anchored in something or Someone greater than yourself and greater than the present trouble. Every day we need to preach to ourselves and to one another the gospel of God’s redeeming power and very real presence. This is the way of the Psalmist. This is the Sermon of their Songs. In order to preach and listen to this sermon, we must “Be still and know that He is God.” (46:10). Join us this Sunday through our live stream service (https://pcpc.org/live/) as we look together at the attributes of God and how we can live today in His omnipotent power and His omnipresence, experiencing His perfect peace.

Seasons of our lives can lead to once solid edifices crumbling around us, leaving us with more questions than answers. Who am I? Do I even know who God is anymore? All that I thought I knew seems to turn to ash. This new perspective of God weighs heavily on my soul and seems incongruent to everything I thought I knew. What will happen to me now?

I have often been overwhelmed when confronted with my mistaken perceptions of God. I have gone through periods of my life thinking or hoping God was one way, only to have the Holy Spirit shatter that illusion. I tend to build the foundations of my life on my perceptions of God rather than God Himself. It shouldn’t be a surprise when that foundation crumbles and I painfully fall onto the true bedrock of God’s glorious personhood; a personhood more majestic than I could ever envision.

In the midst of the tumultuous darkness of Ezekiel’s circumstances and perceptions, the radiance of God was enthroned. It was the rainbow parting the clouds after the storm. Israel’s political and spiritual crisis was put into its proper perspective when Ezekiel saw God for who He truly was. Israel was not forsaken in Babylon but was deeply loved by God. Ezekiel was no longer exiled but at the center of the Lord’s plan to bring Israel back into the covenant. God lifted Ezekiel’s eyes beyond his present situation and former identity to the throne of God’s glory; a glory more dazzling than anything imaginable. And on that throne was man–-a man that would shatter everyone’s perceptions of God.

How do we perceive God?

Most of us are familiar with the saying, “Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” This proverb has been circulated for well over a century and is attributed to Lord Acton, but the idea behind it is as ancient as humanity itself. While this narrative may be true for most humans entrusted with power, the book of Hebrews reminds us that it is absolutely not true for Jesus.

Hebrews begins by affirming that Jesus has absolute power. The author describes Jesus as the Son of God, the heir of all things, the creator of the world, the radiance of the glory of God, the exact imprint of God’s nature, the one who upholds the universe by the word of His power, the one who sits at the right hand of God, and the one who is superior to angels (Hebrews 1:2-4). Taken together, these descriptions not only reveal Jesus as having absolute power over humanity and earthly powers, but over everything in the visible universe and in the invisible spiritual realm. Indeed, there is nothing outside of Jesus’ absolute power.

With such a strong opening, we might assume the book of Hebrews would go on to give threatening commands for us to fear, obey, and honor this divinely authoritative and sovereign Jesus. Perhaps the author would recount how Jesus will use His power to subdue and finally defeat all of His and our enemies on the last day. But that is not the picture of Jesus that Hebrews emphasizes and celebrates.

The amazing thing Hebrews reveals about Jesus is that He used His absolute power not to exalt Himself, but to humble Himself; not to provoke us to fear Him, but to convince us to trust Him. The author tells us Jesus used His absolute power in shockingly selfless ways.

Second to the Bible, the most published Christian book in history is one which most Christians today have never heard of. The book is The Pilgrim’s Progress, written in the 1760’s by a poor English preacher named John Bunyan. It is allegorical quest-story about a man’s conversion to faith in Jesus Christ, and his pilgrim journey towards his heavenly home. Like Bunyan, who wrote the story while in prison for preaching, the main character experienced both profound joy and suffering during his journey.

One of the most severe seasons of suffering in the story comes when Christian walks through the Valley of the Shadow of Death (while written in Old English, the allegorical aspect of the book is very straightforward). Bunyan introduces readers to the place with these words,

"The valley itself is as dark as pitch; we also saw there the hobgoblins, satyrs, and dragons of the pit; we heard also in that Valley a continual howling and yelling, as of a people under unutterable misery, who there sat bound in affliction and irons; and over that Valley hangs the discouraging clouds of confusion. Death also doth always spread his wings over it. In a word, it is every whit dreadful, being utterly without order."

Striking in Bunyan’s description is how disorienting and chaotic the Valley seems. Those who have experienced evil, misery, affliction, and the threat of death can all bear witness to the accuracy of Bunyan’s words. Many of us can attest that to the fact that suffering inflicts a confusion that can be paralyzing, lonely, and downright scary.

In the midst of the darkness, Christian is reoriented by doing two things: praying out loud (to drown out the evil sounds around him), and reciting Bible verses (because it was too dark to read his Bible)...

PCPC COVID-19 Message from Mark Davis

Dear PCPC Family,

As most of you by now know Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson declared a state of emergency after Dallas County officials banned large public gatherings of more than 500 people in efforts to slow the spread of the virus. At this time all PCPC events have been canceled until further notice.

The first words spoken by our County and City officials urge us not to panic. As those who trust in Christ, we have the privilege of casting all of our anxiety on Him who cares for us. We have the freedom of acknowledging every fear and bringing them into the Light, to the One who loves us and cares for us perfectly. This is a very significant and unique moment in our lives together to reflect the power and presence of our living God to a world that is deeply broken and understandably afraid. We will do this by faith, seeking the Lord in prayer, showing love and compassion to those who are sick and in need, and being ready to give an answer for the Hope we have in the midst of such incredible challenges.

This Sunday at 9:30 a.m. we will live stream our worship service. We invite you to join us by going to https://pcpc.org/live. Our service will include prayer, special music, the reading of God’s Word, and the sermon. We will continue to worship this way until further notice.

To stay informed with how PCPC is responding to this health emergency, you can go to https://pcpc.org/coronavirus or the PCPC mobile app.

If you are in need of pastoral care during this season, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our pastors through Wilma Morgan at 214-224-2742 or email at [email protected]. We are eager to walk with you and encourage all of our flock during this time.

The Lord is with us, He is leading us, and He will never forsake us. This is His promise! Now is an opportunity for us to lean into Him and pray and meditate upon His Word and His attributes. As we walk through this together, know that I, along with all of our pastors, elders, and deacons love you deeply.

Trusting in the Solid Rock,

Mark Davis
Senior Pastor
