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.

作為信徒,我們被神呼召來講述真理、尋求真理和實踐真理。畢竟,耶穌說:「你們必曉得真理,真理必叫你們得以自由。」(約翰福音 8:32)。但誰才是真理?答案就是耶穌。在約翰福音 14 章 6 節,「耶穌說我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉著我,沒有人能到父那裡去。」耶穌在每一方面都是真理的代表和化身。因為耶穌就是真理,祂也向我們實淺了如何尋求、講述和實踐真理的榜樣。 在寫給歌羅西教會的信中,保羅和提摩太熱

主耶穌在馬太福音 5:23-24節說:「所以,你在祭壇上獻禮物的時候,若想起弟兄向你懷怨,就把禮物留在壇前,先去同弟兄和好,然後來獻禮物。」換言之與人和睦相處比在教會事奉或敬拜奉獻更為重要。但是,如果我們的「鄰舍」真的對我們有意見,而我們認為是不合情理、怎麼辦呢?我們採取解決分歧之前,會忍讓到什麼程度呢? 在三日前的會員大會中,有一位弟兄提起馬太福音 18章,15-17 節是說:「倘若你的弟兄得罪
