4/3/2022 Who is Your One? ~Rev. Benjamin Chung

As Christians—and as a church affiliated with the SBC—a theme for the last several years has been: “Who is Your ONE?” It’s a very simple concept. Who are you focusing on sharing the good news of Jesus with? That person is your “ONE”. The idea is to keep the

concept simple. This is also how Scripture describes the actions of Jesus and His disciples. Jesus would find a disciple here or there. Once Jesus found someone, that disciple would find someone else and bring them to Jesus. Andrew brought his brother Peter to Jesus (John 1:42). The same scenario unfolds again in the following verses (vv.43-

46), where Jesus finds Philip, and Philip in turn finds Nathaniel and brings him to Jesus.

It’s such a simple process, really. So simple, we don’t even notice the process being applied. But we can easily forget and thus we need reminding. We get busy. And it was likely difficult to interact with others while we were in our homes during Covid-19. But even in SF, restrictions are loosening. We can engage with people more now. This means, on top of praying for the non-Christians we know, let’s be interacting with them, and even inviting them to church! This is how it works.

So, who is your ONE? If you don’t have a person in mind yet, here’s some simple steps to take.

1. Take a moment to pray right now and ask Jesus to put a person on your heart. Once the LORD has give you a name, write his/her down here: ________________________________. If more than one person comes to mind, that’s ok! Write down their names. (Research

shows that 3 is likely the max you can focus on.)

2. Figure out how you’re going to contact your ONE. Phone? Text? Mail? Email? Grab coffee or get lunch together?

3. Give yourself a deadline to contact your ONE. Many times, we plan to do something, but we forget because we don’t set a time to act. Set an appointment on your phone, or better yet, use an app to automatically send out a text message at a time that’s convenient!

4. Prepare. Pray for the LORD to work in your ONE’s heart. And pray for the LORD to guide you in what to say to your ONE.

5. Be patient and persistent. It might just take a single invite, or it could be years and decades. But don’t give up! It’s for your ONE to also be a part of the heavenly kingdom, so it’s worth it. Jesus says in Luke 15:10 (ESV), “I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Let’s keep those angels celebrating!

我們在逆境中處事態度和反應,正是測試我們對神的認識、信心和忠心。在順境中,享受美好的生活,一切順利,身體健康,感謝神是容易的,服事神是容易的,信靠神是容易的。相反地,苦難在眼前,我們的信心會動搖,憂慮境況會惡化,感到筋疲力盡。我們會怎樣回應這境況?我們的回應正是反映我們對神的認識、敬畏和忠心。 從但以利書三章一至十八節,尼布甲尼撒王命令民眾俯伏敬拜金像,沙得拉、米煞和亞伯尼歌對尼佈甲尼撒王的回應,

假若有人控訴我們奪取了神之物時,很多人也會反問:「我們在何事上奪取了神之物?」因為這確實是一個很嚴重的指控!就如瑪拉基書中的以色列人也同樣發出了這個問題。耶和華便說:「就是在你們在當納的十分之一和當獻的供物上。」 今天的信徒可能會反駁,我們當然有十分之一的奉獻,怎麼會是奪取呢?而我亦相信很多信徒有不止十分之一的奉獻。但是神的家是不是單指我們在金錢上的奉獻呢?現今除了金錢上的十分之一外,神更要求我們

從哥林多前書 13章1-13 節中,我們才得知什麼是愛,什麼並不算是愛。如果這聽起來好像很耳熟能詳,皆因這段文字經常在基督教婚禮裡被人引用。非基督徒聽到第一至第三節這些跟行為和異能有關的描述時可能會覺得很怪。然而沒有了愛,這一切都是無用和毫無價值的。這並非是個什麼新鮮概念,在路加福音 10章17-20 節中記載,當七十二個門徒回到耶穌身邊,門徒們對耶穌之名的力量與及對他們能以施行神蹟之事而感到驚愕
