当传福音不再是义务,凡事都能 All Things Are Possible When Evangelism Is No Longer An Obligation

jesus-bible-14g

God most concern is evangelism. When our concern match with God’s concern, we have the answer to everything and have no more problems. I started to recall back of what Pastor Lee had shared before when we just got to know this Immanuel Message, it said when we have the vision of evangelism, all problems will be solved. But since my life got more and more problems, I started to find it hard to accept ‘really no problem anymore’’? When I continue to doubt, I feel myself incapable to evangelise because of my conditions.

sleepless night

Since I’ve become the church of secretary, my sleeping time has all messed up. I’m only able to sleep when the birds start to sing. When I can’t sleep, I tried to do the church stuff or do my own personal things. I ever tried to sleep early, at first it became better but it doesn’t last long. Now, everyday I feel so tired, even though night time I can’t sleep, I still feel tired, the worse thing is, I can’t concentrate to do the church stuff because my mind just keep thinking about other things, I started to feel so accuse and blaming myself for everything. How can I serve the Lord and benefit people with such a conditions now?

church-mission-3Then God spoke to me through this message, it said ‘You are ALREADY the witnesses to all these things’. Through all my sleepless night and my weaknesses, I was ALREADY THE WITNESSES. Everything in me is a gospel because Christ is in me, the holy spirit is in me, the perfect will is in me… I realized even if I can’t sleep at night, even when I can’t concentrate, God still use me to glorify His name and His people. I think this is what evangelism is, not because of humanism but God-driven, not because of what I do or what conditions I have now, but it is because Christ (Power and Grace) lives in me and also ALREADY FAVORS me. 

a-childs-prayer

Last night I prayed to God, ‘Lord, let me able to sleep and give me the strength for tomorrow to do His will’. I thought God will grant my wish, but end up I still can’t sleep. I was a bit disappointed but when I see myself ALREADY THE WITNESSES, I know God has His perfect will in me and I don’t have to feel accuse anymore. God will heal me in His right timing so do continue to remember me in your prayer. 

May we continue to see our lives and all our conditions are a reflection of the gospel and also see as evangelism is not obligation but to see we are already a witnesses. Purely trust His promises in us, for ‘What we are now’ are already in evangelism and a bridge of evangelism.

‘As far as the gospel is concerned, they are enemies on your account; but as far as election is concerned, they are loved on account of the patriarchs, for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.’ <Ro 11:28-29>  

上帝最关心的是传福音。 当我们的关心与上帝的关心配合时,我们拥有了一切的答案而再也没有问题了。 我开始回想起初听到这以马内利的信息时,李牧师也曾经有分享过当一个人拥有了传福音的异象时,一切的问题都能解决。当我生命的问题越来越多时,我开始很难接受这个, 我想’ 真的再也没问题吗? 我越想越怀疑,觉得因自己的条件,无能传福音。

从我开始成为教会的干事时,我的睡眠时间慢慢搅乱了。我只有在鸟儿开始唱歌时我才能入睡。当我不能睡时,我就做些教会的事工或做个人的事情。我尝试要早睡,开始好像有好一些,但这并不长久而又再度进入失睡了。现在我每天都很累,晚上又累但不能睡,最糟糕的是,我不能专心做教会的事工因为我的脑子里一直在想别的事。我开始受自责,受控告,一切都怪我自己。 我心就想,因我的情况,我怎么事奉上帝,怎么叫人的益处呢?

但上帝接着这个信息对我说,‘我已经是这些事的见证人了’。通过所有的不眠之夜和我的弱点,我已经是见证人了。我的一切就是福音了因为基督已在我里面,圣灵在我里面,神的美意在我里面。。。我发现虽然我不能睡,不能集中上帝的事工,上帝还是使用我来荣耀祂的名和祂的子民。我想这就是所谓的传福音了,不是人为乃是神为, 不是因为我做什么或因什么条件,乃是因为基督(能力和恩典)住在我里面,祂也已经喜悦我了

昨晚我向上帝祷告说,‘主啊,求袮让我能够睡也给我能力行神的旨意’。我想上帝会应允我的祷告,不过最后还是不能睡。我虽然有些失望但我看到自己已经是见证人了,我知道上帝有祂的美意在这事情上所以我不再为此事受控告,上帝会在祂最好的时间表医治我。所以请大家能继续为我祷告。

希望我们继续看到我们生命和一切的条件都是福音的反映也看到传福音本不是义务乃是看到我们已经是见证人了。纯正的信靠主给我们的应许,因我们的一切生命已经是在传福音里,是福音的桥梁。

‘就着福音说,他们为你们的缘故是仇敌。就着拣选说,他们为列祖的缘故是蒙爱的。因为神的恩赐和选召,是没有后悔的’。《罗11:28-29》
