4/25/2021 A Season for Everything ~Rev. Benjamin Chung

In Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 (ESV), it says, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: 2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted.” In agriculture, there are indeed different seasons. There's sowing, growing, and harvesting. Then there's also the barn season, where the equipment is prepared. The harvesters and tractors need to be maintained and be ready to operate for the next season. Even the seed needs to be purchased and measured. Living in a city, some of these aspects can be lost to us because we only see the final product in the store—unless we have tried to plant and grow something in our backyard or in the kitchen. Regarding the barn season, it might seem as if this is a time to be lazy, when in fact there is a lot of work to still be done! This is affirmed later, in Ecclesiastes 11:4, where the author writes, “He who observes the wind will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap.”

In the same way, preparation is vital to the believer's life. Whether it is personal, in the workplace, or even in ministry, those times of planning and preparing will help us put forth a successfully executed plan. I'm really happy with how the Easter Egg Event unfolded. There were many positive comments given and I can only praise the talent and diligence of the planning team. We held many meetings, purchased many items, and prayed for a successful event. And it came through! I pray for more successful events.

As our state continues to open up, so is the plan to resume in-person worship at SFCBC. Leaders, we really need you to participate in the soft openings! The planning and preparations have been put in place. “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9). Indeed, this is part of the work during our “barn season” so that we can have a bountiful harvest season in the coming months.

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
