A good practice of doing things by faith: )

faithRecently we have been talking a lot about the word “faith”, not only from the book of Job (Job said the Lord gave and the Lord has taken away after his first testing, then he said when God tested me, I will come forth as gold when he suffered for some time.This kind of tested faith is what God wanted from us) , but also from the book of Ephesians (Paul reminded us that we have so many spiritual blessings in Christ, but all these blessings we have to attain it by faith, and after having all these spiritual blessings we should live the life of high standard).

From all these studies, we see God’s teaching are so connected, the spirit is leading us to live a life with faith, with power. And this Friday, we changed our normal topic on Friday to how to apply faith in everything we do due to the spirit’s leading. We used personal examples to express how we could use our faith. It was really refreshing to us. Praise God that he always gives what we need to us. God is so good!

Today we had our evangelism event, during our prayer, we prayed that may we have faith in the Lord that no matter how many people coming to the event, we will be prepared to do God’s work and be a good testimony to each other. We were planned to talk about how can we get the faith, in the middle of the teaching, we noticed there is a Finnish guy standing in front of our door. Ying went out and talked to him and welcomed him to our church and he came in. Praise God!

We all welcomed him and we had a chance to tell him briefly about our church, gave testimony to him.And praise God the person is also willing to open up to us. He said he believes there is someone in control, but he doesn’t know God so much. We got a chance to pray for him later, and we prayed God can open his eyes to see Him. When he told us the reason why he was looking at our church and came in, we saw how amazing our God is! We never know how He leads someone to Him, but we only trust if we have faith in Him, we can be used by Him to preach his gospel and glorify Him.

This is really a good practice of doing things by faith! Praise God!

 

Love of God endures forever

 

God is goodThis song was written according to the scripture in the old testament, Israelite sang to the Lord: “God is good; his love endures forever.”

It is true, God is good, he does everything to benefit those who love Him and help them to know Him more.

Here below is the lyric in Chinese:

耶和华本为善,他的慈爱永远长存!

耶和华本为善,他的慈爱永远长存!

我要天天歌颂你,永永远远赞美你!

The light gives us life

 

jesus is the lightThis song was written during the time when we started the study of book of John. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. (John 1:1-4)

Here below are the lyrics in Chinese:

你就是那真光,照亮我心中的黑暗

你就是那道路,修直我生命中的崎岖

基督耶稣,尊贵羔羊,洗净我一切的罪恶

全能真神,生命主宰,荣耀权柄都归你 都归你

你是生命,生命完全在你里面

你是真光,赐生命的光

Give up

 

Jesus carrying the crossThis song was written during a time Holy Spirit reminded us to give up self and offer ourselves as a living sacrifice to God which we could get the confirmation from Paul’s teaching in Romans 12:1-2(Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God- this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the patter of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.)

Here below is the lyrics in Chinese:

你取了人的样式降生尘世,你轻看了一切苦楚走向了十架

耶稣为我们你舍弃了自己,耶稣你给了我们这新生命

放弃放弃,效法你的样式

放弃放弃,跟从你的道路

世上一切实为虚空,唯有你能充满充满我们心灵

你的恩典每日赐下,丰丰富富进入进入我们生命
