11/07/2021 Have Faith! ~Rev. Benjamin Chung

Don’t give up! Keep trying! What am I talking about? A pastor friend of mine just shared with me that his grandmother was in the hospital last Friday. Normally, few are allowed into the hospital for visits. But through the efforts of the chaplain at the hospital my friend was let in. Moreover, this was in the nick of time, as she passed away Saturday evening. His grandmother’s doctors had stated that she did not have much time to live. Thankfully, the chaplain had been sharing the gospel with the grandmother. Then, when my pastor friend was allowed in and given the opportunity to further share the gospel with her, guess what? even in her weak state, when asked if she wanted to follow Jesus, she said, “Yes!” “What?” my friend thought, surprised. My friend’s grandmother accepted the Lord Jesus as her Savior! Hallelujah! This is definitely a time to rejoice in the work of the Holy

Spirit! Please celebrate with me right now! Then, in our mutual social media app chat, a friend of ours included this wonderful and true statement of our Lord Jesus, “I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine

righteous persons who need no repentance” (Luke 15:7 ESV). Like a sheep that has gone astray, the shepherd rejoices in the finding of his lost sheep.


Brothers and sisters, we know the drill. We know that our time on Earth is temporary as is the time for everyone else. Let the glories of the Lord be on the tips of our tongues. Acknowledge his greatness and goodness! In fact, there might be some who did go to church and have backslidden. Perhaps to the point where one wonders if they were even believers in the first place. Pray for them. Seek them out and connect with them to see how they’re doing and what they’ve been up to during the entire pandemic and lock down. When we show that we care out of genuine love, people will respond. Paul even says, “Love one another with brotherly affection” (Romans 12:10).


Lastly, if you have not been too active in your faith, know that it is not too late! Continue to join us in worship services, attending our small/community groups and fellowships. Have faith in the Jesus, the Savior of the world, who has kept you even to this day.

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

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

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
