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.
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?
Then 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.
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。
