Relationship is very important to every child of God, relationship with God, church, family and colleague but many times we unable to receive His strength to have a complete and blessed relationship with each of them. So Jesus Christ give us an example and called us to remember Him whenever we eat the flesh of Christ and drink His blood. To eat the flesh and drink His blood is to die and resurrect with Jesus Christ so that we are able to receive His strength and wisdom, and enjoy His greatest love and blessing in Him.
Although I’m a very soft kind of person, but most of the time I do not have a good relationship with people, the reason is because I feel inferior. So many times I depend on my own strength, own appearance, own strong point to cover my weaknesses so as to have a better relationship with people, but it still does not stands out well. Then I feel more inferior to everybody, no matter in church, family or in work, because I see inside myself is not good enough compare to everybody, so I became more close up to myself, slowly I don’t wish to attend the church service. When I thought of going to church, I don’t know what to talk to them so I rather make myself invisible. But God still loves me, so at the right time, God illuminate His love to me through the ‘Mystery of the Cross’. Then I realized that the most important relationship I must build with is Jesus Christ and so I told God, ‘I want to receive healing from you’. I started to attend all the church meetings, although I was still weak at that time, but through the pulpit message and the fellowship with brethrens, I started to love the church, love the brother and sisters as I see no matter their conditions is good or bad, we all have the same spirit which is ‘We all need Christ’. I also started to have strength to overcome some of my weaknesses, all my doubts and struggles are slowly clear, all the accusation from satan was slowly able to receive strength and counter back to him, what I cannot understand the love of God, the purpose and the direction was slowly revealed to me in His perfect will and the most deepest problem I had, God just said to me, ‘I loves you and wants to use you.’ Well, I’m still not perfect, sometime I still envy people, sometimes I still feel inferior and feel lousy of myself and etc… but during the process, I’ve learned one thing, no matter how people look down on me, how i feel inferior, how weak I am, God regards me the most important, He loves me and favors me, and this is where I’ve the strength to be joyful and contented in Christ. Although I do not always be strong, that’s why we always need to remember (in spirit) the ‘Baptism and Holy communion’ (The mystery of the Christ) of our Lord Jesus Christ. Only the fulfillment of the cross is our everything, our all in all.
Anymore inferior, no contentment, anger, hatreds, sin, problems…etc.. ? Restore the relationship with God is the most happiest relationship in this world that leads us to have a better relationship with people around us.
Our dear Pastor mentioned about the hymn of ‘Above All’. I would like to share this hymn. While listen to this hymn, let us enjoy the greatest, unlimited, unconditional, deepest and highest love of our Lord Jesus Christ. He seems lowly and trampled by people but He is above everything.
Above all powers ，Above all kings
Above all nature and all created things
Above all wisdom and all the ways of man
You were here before the world began
Above all kingdoms, Above all thrones
Above all wonders the world has ever known
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
There’s no way to measure What You’re worth
Crucified, Laid behind the stone
You lived to die, Rejected and alone
Like the rose, Trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
虽然我是一个柔软的人,但很多时候我跟人没有很良好的关系，原因是因为我很自卑。所以很多时候我靠我自己的能力，自己的外貌，自己的优点来遮盖我的软弱去建立与人的好关系，但是这并非如此。我后来对每个人就更加自卑，无论是在教会里，家庭里或是在工作里，因为我看到我里面的不好，更人相比时，我变得更加自闭，慢慢的我开始不想去教会。每当我想到要去教会时，我不知道能跟他们说什么才好，所以我宁可把自己当成透明人。但是上帝仍然还爱我，在最对的时间里，上帝的爱光照了我通过‘十字架的奥秘’。后来我发现到最重要的关系是要建立在耶稣基督，所以我对上帝说,‘我要得医‘!我开始去参加每一个聚会，虽然当时我还是很软弱，不过接着每一次的讲台信息和跟弟兄姐妹的团契，我开始爱教会，爱弟兄姐妹，因我看到无论他们的条件是好或坏，我们都有同样的灵，就是’我们都是需要基督‘。我也开始有能力来克服我的一些软弱，我所有的矛盾与挣扎，所有从撒旦得到的一切控告感也慢慢被除去，我一向不能明白上帝的爱，目的和反向，上帝也慢慢的向我显明祂的美意, 而我最最深的问题， 上帝只对我说，‘我爱你,我要使用你’。我虽然还不完全，我有时还会羡慕人，有时还会觉得自卑而感到自己没用… 但是经过这些过程，主叫我学习一样事，就是无论别人怎样看小我，无论我多么的自卑或软弱，上帝是最看重我了，祂爱我也喜悦我，我的喜乐与满足感就是从这里得着能力来的。我不是每次这么坚强，所以这就是为什么我们要时常纪念（心灵）‘主的圣餐和受洗’（基督的奥秘）。只有十字架的成就才是我们的一切所需，是我们的一切的一切。
降低 自己 因袮爱我
"For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
