LORD HAS CALLED US TO LIVE IN HOLINESS AND PRODUCE FRUIT.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of THE Father and of THE Son and of THE Holy Spirit” – Matthew 28:19
Our mission is to share the good news, the good news of John 3:16, the free gift of salvation. There are many people in this world who have not heard the name of Jesus. God has given us the commandment to go and speak the Good news to all creatures and we are obliged to do so (1 Corinthians 9:16), because salvation is found only in Jesus (Acts 4:12). This is why St. Paul recalls the words of Isaiah in Romans 10:15 , “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”.
praise and thank God for the many ways he has revealed his glory to us. This testimony is long overdue. We had been praying for our older son to find a suitable life partner. During the prayer meeting, Bro announced that someone has been praying for their son to get married. The Lord is blessing their son with a life partner. We claimed that blessing for our son. Another day when my son met Bro., while he was praying he told him that he would meet a life partner and he would get married soon. He did find a life partner, exactly the type of girl he wanted and he is now happily married. Then, suddenly my second son of 33 year old suffered a heart attack. It was a surprise to all of us, including the doctors. It was a shock to all of my family members. It was very hard to accept that my son, so young could have a heart attack. I thank them all for their prayers and support and above all I thank and Praise my Mighty Lord and Saviour for giving my son back to me..
I was having some tough time at office with heavy work load. I had to extend my shift everyday and it made me weak both spiritually and physically. I even planned to put immediate resignation as I felt rejected at work place. But, The Holy Spirit asked me to continue the work and to show dedication to all task in workplace for our Lord values our efforts (Prov 16:3). And Holy Spirit made me to meditate on the impossible things that he made happen over ages as nothing is impossible for God (Luke 1:37) I claimed and hoped for the good (Rom 5:5) as the word of God says, Lord may fulfill all our desires, according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Phil 4:19).. Then it was the time for my yearly work evaluation and I was in tears after seeing my performance rating. It was 10 out of 10, which is quite impossible as per worldly means…But is our Lord Jesus who made it possible. If God is for us who be against us.. Rom 8:31 Praise Yeshua…
FOR THE SAKE OF HIS KINGDOM!!
I was in an emotional distress and it has made me to be anxious severely. Fear of having serious illness, losing job, going crazy, hard to sleep and hard to concentrate at work. Praise Jesus I went to see a doctor (he’s both medical and spiritual doctor). He invited me to come to their regular class to praise and worship as well as reading and sharing bible. Initially, I thought it’s not gonna work for me (I pray and read bible but only with little faith). Jesus reminds me through a friend and ask me to pray everyday Ephesians 1:15-23 entitled Thanksgiving and prayer. However I love the translation in Bahasa ‘Doa untuk pengertian kemuliaan Kristus’ (Prayer for understanding Christ’s Glory). I started to read this passage few times, day by day I can feel that Jesus has removed my doubt and confusion. Now I can pray and worship with faith, reading and contemplating the bible everyday at least 2-3 hour in a day. Praise Jesus, I feel so different now. All my fears and anxious are gone, I can concentrate at work, I can sleep anytime I want. Most importantly, I feel missing something if I don’t read bible. Sometimes I sit in front of TV just relax and watching soccer match for a while, suddenly I can feel someone tell me ‘go to your bedroom and read bible, don’t waste your time with this useless TV program’. Jesus is alive, Praise Jesus!
