Dear Brothers and Sisters:
Welcome Rev. Calvin Lai and Mrs. Lai visited us and praise the LORD for the message delivered by Rev. Lai. Welcome Esther and her friends from Taiwan visited us Sunday.
Summary of the message on 1/15: Motive of Ministry – 2 Corinthians 5:14-15
Christ’s love constraining us and only that will keep us faithful in every situation. Our motive of ministry is “our response to the great love of our LORD”
The three steps of preparing disciples for ministry
- Jesus prayed for his disciples that they would have the love of the father in them (John 17:26)
- Jesus asked Peter three times that if Peter loves Him (John 21:15-17)
- Jesus gave the great commission to his disciple (Matthew 28:18-20)
Great quote from the message: “God’s work, do it according God’s way, will never lack God’s supply” -Hudson Taylor
May we all sense the deep love of God and respond in action!
