    AtholRejoice in the Lord and Seek His Will
    Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever
    is true, whatever is noble, whatever
    is right, whatever is pure, whatever
    is lovely, whatever is admirable—if
    anything is excellent or praiseworthy—
    think about such things.

    Whatever you have learned or received
    or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into
    practice. And the God of peace will be with you. —
    Philippians 4: 8 and 9

    Fall is upon us, and the year is rapidly drawing
    to a close. It seems that the years go by ever
    quicker; and as we look at the world around us,
    it is easy to stumble into despair and retreat into ourselves. As Paul writes to the church in Philippi, he is encouraging them to be like Christ and to strive for a heavenly perspective on life; “But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly
    await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,” Philippians 3:20.
    Paul was writing while in prison, yet he constantly encouraged them to rejoice as he himself was rejoicing. How can we rejoice always? 
    (Chapter 4:4) Paul gives us clear advice in the verses quoted above; we have to ensure that we think and dwell on things that are right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy.

    The world does not dwell on these things. Rather, the world is mired in darkness and despair.  We can easily become trapped in gossip and negative talk as we walk together as brothers and sisters in Christ here in our church.
    As we embrace the changing of seasons and the changes in our church, let us remember to rejoice in the Lord always as we seek his will and purposes for our lives and our church.

    —- Athol Barnes
