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!

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
