Christmas Eve 2020: We had rain. We had social distancing. Yet Bethel gave thanks in all things and worshiped.
This dear sweet beautiful lady is Janet Fields. You may be familiar with her son Kenneth Fields (who served as a deacon at Knox OPC and later as an elder at another OPC in PG county). Janet played the organ for many many years at Knox OPC in Silver Spring, Maryland where I grew up. She also played the organ on my wedding day. Hearing her voice just brought back a flood of memories for me. She is being featured here in a profile piece where she currently resides at Quarryville Presbyterian Retirement community. Enjoy!!
Church at home, together. (Streaming now at www.bethelpres.com)
"Fear not, I am with thee; O be not dismayed,
for I am thy God and will still give thee aid.
I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand." [John Rippon]

Join us at 11 a.m. Sunday as we will start a new sermon series: Encountering God: Reflections on the Gospel of John.

Alienation. Separation. Loneliness. Who hasn't felt it? Sometimes we are aware of it even when we are in a crowd.

There's a root to these feelings. The first man broke confidence with God and then hid from Him. Human beings were driven away from the presence of God, content in their perpetual discontent.

But God was not content to leave us there. He called after us: "In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at various times and in many ways." Some heard. Some knew about God. But God was still not content. He didn't want people to know about Him. He wanted people to know Him, for us "to know as we are fully known."

So God robed himself in human nature, body and soul, and came to us to trap us into an encounter with himself. "In these last days he's spoken to us in His Son." We could know about God through the prophets, but God wanted us to know Him.

Face to face with the God-man, he would become the occasion for "the rise and fall of many." He would force the issue with an invitation to come and be reconciled to God through Him. To encounter God in Him, and really know Him.

Not all would accept the invitation. Many would turn away preferring to embrace their alienation, separation, and loneliness.

Although he has now ascended into Heaven, Jesus continues to be with us by His Holy Spirit, in His Word, and through His church. The personal encounters with Him reported in John's Gospel are no mere history lesson, no mere "information about." Through them, God continues to trap people into an encounter with Himself, and calls you to know Him, not just to know about Him. bethelpres.com

Being committed to Christ means being committed to truth. You should be suspicious of your real commitments if somehow “faith in God” always seems to baptize and confirm what you want to believe and achieve. If you are committed to truth, then you are committed to correction and rebuke (see the book of Proverbs). It should be a frequent experience that the truth challenges and confronts your natural desires rather than confirms them (if we actually believe what the Bible says of our natural desires. I think most Evangelicals believe what the Bible says about other people’s natural desires, but they’re not so sure of the Bible’s accuracy when it comes to assessing their own desires).https://www.bethelpres.com/articles/truth?fbclid=IwAR33DYuCyqv-a83iYyl-Rqg2pHCNwMI2hvFf9eYyy2vgc92hZ6ya6FpocW8
