Pastor Vic's message for June
 The Queen's Jubilee pageant was spectacular. During her sixty years on the throne our Queen has been an inspiration and even though she has led a privileged life, she has never wavered from her faith in Christ.
In the Old testament the word for Jubilee is 'yobel', its exact meaning is 'time of shouting'. You can read about it in Leviticus chapters 25 to 27. In the year of Jubilee which was to take place every fiftieth year, property was to be returned. It was a bit like leasehold, the more years to Jubilee the dearer the property was. That is why Elimelech's lands could only be redeemed by a close relative who was prepared to take Ruth as a wife. Boaz turned out to be that one. Slaves too were released in the year of Jubilee. Our Jubilee came when Christ set us free from sin's enslavement. Jesus is OUR kinsman Redeemer. No wonder we can shout for joy. Don't hold back, give the King of Kings a SHOUT OF PRAISE!
The other thing soon to take place in this memorable year is the Olympic games. In the New Testament the Apostle Paul was very aware of the games of his day. 1 Corinthians 9 vs 24 says; 'run in such a way as to win the prize..they do it for a crown that will not last, we do it for a crown that will last forever'. In Hebrews chapter 12 verse 1 it says; let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us'. I feel it is not so much a sprint race as a marathon, but at the end of it we shall receive a crown of glory, see 1 Peter chapter 5 verse 4.
Run the race, keep the faith, Our Queen has and one day she will exchange her fabulous crown for an even better one!
