1/16/2022 Bearing Burdens ~Rev. Benjamin Chung

When it’s time to slow down—slow down. The LORD can even cause you to slow down if He wills it. Someone who caught Covid a few months ago applied this fact as she was bed ridden for over 2 weeks. As she and her husband battled the virus, they also interpreted the time to be quiet and tune into the mind of Christ. For them, it was definitely a spiritual battle and coming out of it, they can now hear from the Lord much more clearly. (And during their sickness, their teenage children were able to care for


For my own family, Covid was not so debilitating (and so we think we had the Omicron variant). Ignatius had a fever in the afternoon and by the next morning, he was completely fine. Athanasius also became fatigued and had a dry cough. For Angelia and myself, we had flu-like symptoms and this drove us to resting in the bed for 1 to 2 days. Thankfully, we did not come down with the sickness at the same time, so we were able to care for each other. This was actually my prayer request to the LORD, as our children are not old enough to care for us at their age. We were also grateful recipients of food that was dropped off during our sickness. What wonderful gestures of love we experienced. Galatians 6:2 was clearly applied, which states, “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (ESV). Indeed our burdens were borne by others outside the household and inside. Not only that, we received my prayer from the church. James 5:14 states, “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him.” We are grateful to the deacon board and everyone else that prayed for us during this ordeal. We did not go through this event alone.

This is also how it should be. We support one another, whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. We come to one another’s aid as Romans 12:5 (NIV84) says, “In Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”

Let us care for always, and in so doing, fulfill the will of the Lord. Amen!

5/21/2023 信心和順服之旅 ~鍾卓權牧師

信心能趨使我們獻身於上帝和祂對我們生命的計劃,是重生之後正常的回應。 主耶穌在升天之前,馬太福音 28:16-20 中記載衪告訴門徒要將福音傳給萬民。 然而,信徒中有不少的人並沒有為完成這個大使命而努力,至少不是熱烈地或者踴躍地去執行這個命令。 是什麼原因阻礙了我們 呢?恐懼很可能是原因之一。 例如,如果傳福音意味著離鄉背井,很可能會擔心新環境與治安的問題,文化上的差異,家人和朋友的反對。 我們也

5/7/2023 一天一步順服神 ~鍾卓權牧師

在我們的生活中,順服神的旨意是否會成爲一種負擔?跟隨神的行動是否是一種冒險? 我們經常認爲遵循神的旨意是爲了避免或是不願承擔後果。而有時,我們還以爲改變自己的計劃去順服神可能也是一種沒有把握的冒險。 將順服神的旨意視爲負擔的原因是因爲我們認爲跟隨主是要付出極大的代價。然而,我們也要知道,遵行上帝的旨意並不是僅僅局限於人生中的重大事件,其實同樣也包括在生活小事上的順服。腓立比書4章6節告訴我們,應當

4/9/2023 復活節之後 ~周錦榮執事

七日的頭一天,天剛亮的時候,婦女來到耶穌墓前,想為祂身體薰香,以表示敬愛,卻發現墓石打開,不見主的身體,守墓的兵丁也不在。主的使者向她們顯現,首次宣告主耶穌己復活,並要她們轉告門徒這消息及往加利利見耶穌,耶穌會在他們以先往加利利。在途中,婦女與主相遇,再次要她們告訴門徒往加利利相見 (太28:5-10)。當年十二歲的耶穌在耶路撒冷過節,遲遲未走,與殿裡教師學習討論(路2:46),但現在卻催速門徒回
