5/22/2022 Children of God ~Rev. Bernie Chung

To be called children of God means that we should earnestly seek God and receive His redemption—but this is not the only reason we are called children of God. If we help others to be justified by faith and saved by God’s salvation, we are worthy of being called children of God as well. In Matthew 5:9 (NIV) Jesus says: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” Therefore, if the people of the kingdom of heaven can live out the heavenly likeness and exhibit the spiritual qualities that belong to the children of God, then those around them will recognize them as the children of God and

the disciples of the Lord Jesus. This is how we help with the justification of others, by them seeing God’s likeness through God’s children.

The ninth chapter of Isaiah describes the Lord Jesus as the Wonderful Counselor, Almighty God, the Everlasting Father, and the "Prince of Peace." The redemptive power from the "Prince of Peace" restores the relationships between God and man, between humans, and man with himself. The best way to promote reconciliation is to do our best in every way possible to spread the "Gospel of Peace". The Lord Jesus says that we are called children of God because we are also the peacemakers of God with man, man with man, and man with himself.

Being able to call God our heavenly Abba Father is a great comfort and a redeeming affirmation to many believers. When our friends, brothers and sisters in Christ have difficult relationships with their earthly fathers or have quarrels with their children, their relationship and understanding of God suffers as a result. To better understand who

God is, we need only look and direct the gave of our friends to the Bible to find many of His attributes: Holy, Glorious, Compassionate, Gracious, and Never-changing.

“And they were calling to one another: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory’” (Isaiah 6:3).

“The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love” (Psalms 103:8).

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).

To be children of God is to have a close relationship with Him. This is accomplished when we seek and find out more about God the Father and take up the role of peacemaker to help others to become children of God as well. Let’s pray to the Holy Spirit to help us remove all hindrances that may have kept us all away from God. May we call God our Abba Father as we seek out His glories day by day. Amen!

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
