Pastor’s Page - October 2014 “THE CHANGING SEASONS”

Genesis 8:22 “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”

Fall is in the air! Now, that’s good news for some people, like hunters who have endured what seemed like a never-ending summer of heat and humidity, rain, and lawn mowing. For others, that’s bad news, because it marks the end of the summer garden, the flowers, and the long, peaceful summer nights. (I won’t even mention that it’s time to get the snow blower tuned up, buy a new snow shovel, and clean the rain gutters).

For those of us who have experienced the passing seasons for a goodly number of years, it seems like we barely get into one season before another season comes knocking on our door.

Not long ago I came out of the woods after an evening of bow hunting. But it didn’t really seem like bow hunting because rainforest-like undergrowth and the hordes of mosquitoes that still infest the woods made for a miserable hunt. But as I emerged from the woods, I was greeted by the last light of dusk, a rising moon, a slight chill in the air, and that first deep lung-full of autumn air--a mixture of smells of dying grasses, changing leaves, wood smoke, and ripening corn and soybeans. There is just no other time of the year that smells as sweet as this.

The best part of it all is the reminder that God promised it would be this was as long as this world exists. The cited verse above comes from God’s covenant that He made with Noah after the flood. There were some pleasing smells then, too. Scripture tells us: “Then Noah built an altar to the Lord, and taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: ‘Never again will I curse the ground…’”

God promised that there will always be the changing of seasons as long as we live--as long as this world shall live. Some seasons we will love. We can’t wait until they come and are sad when they go. Some seasons we don’t love so much.

But the changing seasons are just a reminder of something greater that God has promised. Things never stay the same--they are always changing. When things are going badly or sadly in our life, we have the assurance and the eternal hope that God will make it change. When things are going good in our life, we rejoice with an even greater fervor because we know that this, too, will change for the not so good.

Just as we rejoice in the all too fleeting fall colors, we rejoice that the only thing that never changes is God. God and His promises will endure forever.

Rev. John Wilman
