It’s have been a while I’ve not post my blog. Last week was a busy week as I’ve my church camp, rushing the video and also had a great fellowship with the co-workers during their stayed in my house these few days. It was until yesterday. I’m free to have my own time but I asked God whether I can have a good rest without doing anything. Indeed, God loves me so much, I had a great relaxing time, I finally able to sleep well enough and also watched some tv show, heehee.. Today I was recharged and able to start the engine for the Lord. 😛
The last Sunday message was shared by our Reverend Lee Chull. I’m sorry this time I don’t have the short video clip but I think this is also God’s will for us to spend more time to listen to his whole message. This message was similar to the church camp but it was preached in a more precise way that fixed into our time table. I believed many of us are blessed and receive grace from the message. Here are a few points I’ve receive God’s grace from it.
1. Discover in Christ
Many times I didn’t discover Christ is in my life. When problems come, I didn’t dare to face God (this was also shared by our Pastor Vincent during the church camp), or I can say, I don’t know how to face God with my own spirit. The reason I don’t know how to face God is because I didn’t see myself as God’s dignified child of God, I didn’t see that I can be complete and sanctify in Him when I face Him and I didn’t connect my whole life (my experience, my encountered, my conditions, my weaknesses) as a purpose of the great vision in Christ. Therefore it convicted me that I need to always confirm my identity in every way and in every circumstances so that I can discover how wide and long and high and deep the love of Christ and His perfect will is.
2. Meet God through the Holy Spirit
This impact me the most when it was also shared during the church camp. I always have a guilty feeling when I feel I always sin against God, the most guilty thing is why I ‘don’t hate’ the sin so much. Pastor said why we are still in the problem is because we haven’t truly meet God. I thought I have meet God but yet not. This really bothers me a lot and I cried to God, is it because of this reason that’s why I still can’t get out from my sin and problems? The answer is Yes. Then I realised when I ‘truly meet God’ with my spirit, I can truly hate the sin, able to have more strength to die and resurrect with Christ (overcome sin/problems), wants to be cleanse more, wants to be heal more, wants to love God more, … and so as to live a more liberty life.
Recently I’ve watched a show, a girl who feel inferior of herself because she always feel she’s the most unclean person but just when she wants to end her life, her brother came to tell her that ‘You are the most purest girl because your spirit is pure compare to those people who are dirty in their spirit even though their condition/appearance is good’. I was very touched by it, it reminds me of God’s love, in His eyes I’m already clean and pure before Him. – I start to to meet God once again.
3. Be brave
I was a very timid person, afraid a lot of things. When a person makes a bad remarks on me or I did something wrong, it will ruin my mood for the whole week. When I need to lead the singspiration or do a prayer or share something, I was totally freak out but I tried not to show it on my face. When Pastor wants me to take up a ministry, I would try to say no because I feel I’m not good enough, I can’t present myself well in front of people or I may say something wrongly. Even when I wish to comfort a sister, I also quite afraid to share because I feel myself not qualify enough. Yes, I need to be more brave, not to force myself to be brave but to be more rely on the Holy Spirit and to build my confidence in Christ because He is the one who gonna use me so He will surely give me the bold heart to accept everything He plans for me and His vision for me.
4. Books of Poetry
The 5 books of poetry and Psalm is one of my favourite because many times it comforts me and gives me strength the most. I prayed and hope I can become Psalm expert, able to apply it in my life and enjoy more in Christ.
When inferior comes, when guiltiness come, when accusation come, when feeling of failures come… say NO to Satan. Come and meet God, God said, ‘You are already the source of all blessing to all nation’. 🙂
Here’s a song to share below. God is our source of all blessing, no matter what happen tomorrow, God is in control and He is always with us. In Him we are worthy, in Him we have hope for tomorrow, so let’s treasure and give praises to God in each day of our life and enjoy His love and blessing in Christ. And then one day, we will meet Him again.
Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in his ways. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
<Psalm 128:1-2 >
