Mission a blessing

Mission is blessing. Talking about the mission, some confused blessing is some kinds of the material things like luxury, financial prosperities or any kinds of attractive things for human eyes. yes, we need money for our daily uses so that we may survive buying things like food, clothes, houses. Yes, we need car which makes our trip faster to our destination. Many people thought these worldly things would please their heart if they belong it. Do you think they might have peace and pleasure for having these things?
Even in Christian concept, some people thought money is so much blessing in their life. We also need money in mission, and yet cars for mission. But we cannot expect only these things. Worldly prosperities are not everything for us Christians but we should not expect only that much. We have so much precious blessing that God has given us by divine calling to proclaim the gospel so that the people around us would hear the word of God and came to know Jesus. Our spiritual destination is the place that Jesus prepared as he promised. This is the kingdom of heaven.

“Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
‭‭1 Timothy‬ ‭2:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

This is the reason that I am sure that we are so blessed that God pure out His will upon us passing to our generation to preach the gospel. In Jesus teaching about the lost son, which also teaches about our human deaire loving the prosperity rather than living in the present of the Father (God). The son left his father taking his inheritances and went to far away. He forgot how precious is being a son of a rich father. But when he encounter the sufferingand hoplessness in the world, he chose to turn back tohis father. So as the elder son, was a spiritual blind even in his father’s house. He expected to celebrate small feast with his friend, not with his father. What can we learn about the precious blessing here? Serving and living in God’s presence is everything, no worry, no stress at all because everything belong to God.

Hello Churches, Like me you may also have some problems, suffering, hardship.Paul said,

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬
https://www.bible.com/1/heb.12.1.kjv

May any kind of these problems, troubles, hardship loose you, but let us for us on Jesus the author so then our prize is prepared above. Yet your reward is so precious and amazing. Nothing on the earth could compare it and no batter treasure is greater than Gods. Amen

Behind the Stage

Last December 2019, I was invited to visit and share the gospel in the Ayerwaddy Division, where there formal effected areas, People there living scattering villages in the winter time, but in the raining season from June to September, their lives were frequently affected with the flood. Therefore they build houses and churches with high pillars instead of making foundation of their building. My friend invited me last July to go and help them because their area was extremely affected by the flood because of over rainfall. But in the second invitation of my friend pastor, I could join there to see and learn their lives and also to share the good news of Jesus Christ. It was not so much strange for me to make friends with them and still feeling like the real family members or siblings. Yes, we all Christian are in one body and we have no separation and discrimination between the different family background, languages, culture, and even race. This is what God wants us to live in love in all situation.

The Local Church of the affected area

When we visited there, my teams were preparing the drama of the Bible stories, dance and even songs. It was really precious gospel trip for me because of learning the faith of the local people right there and the performance of my team in serving the Lord. When it’s been 3 days we had passed there in serving, sharing the presents for the kids, and giving them spiritual food, making friends with the local people listening their past hard experience during the effected time. I was siting on the stage of the church, and something new words come to my mind looking to both the children’s performance and life in local people in the hardship even with poor education for some families. Why? No electricity, no schools, and yet they had to go to the populated place like town. They had to go to school by boat on the water still far from their villages. Then I could imagine their struggles comparing my struggle in childhood of poor education, health support of my birth place. I could also share their struggle in my spirit that the same thing happening which they were pretending like everting is going well.

After Night Worship Service

I started praying to change my massage to share this topic “behind the stage”. Whoever earn the victory has life struggle behind the stage. I could stand on the stage as a young servant of God, or a pastor, or even like a student as well. I started opening my words by sharing metaphor of my team’s actively performance which was perfect drama, as well as dance. I asked the question about why my team’s performance was so incredible. It was because they were preparing for this stage. The stage that I stood was just where I was sharing the gospel and showing people myself to show I am the servant of God. Who knows how I live like in my private? I was just standing to preach there but the reality of my life was in secret. As a pastor, as well as a Student (MA), nobody except God knows my struggle, pain, and even tears. It was so precious to share just even a few motivation for their educations, even for spirituality, hope and strength for their next step of their life and for even the kingdom of God. I hope they would not give up even though such poor situation occur in this time. There was s way of escape from the present situation like those area. Whenever I face problems, and troubles in life, I used to ask God why God allowed me troubled? “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear, But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it (1 Cor 10:13). That means God open the way and gave me wisdom and strengths to overcome any kind of troubles. Struggle teaches us how to escape, and yet gives us a new strength for the next lever of our steps for tomorrow.

This is what I am just sharing my experiences of visiting to the lives in poverty and my motivation for to work hard and live for God not just on the stage but behind the stage. Amen.

Lion

Why should we need to be like a lion? The book of Mathew emphasizes Jesus as the lion (King or Messiah) whom was prophesied in Old Testament. Lion means the king of the jungle which is the strong cat with big muscles, and having confident. His roaring is like a thunder and yet still dominated all the animals. No animals attack against the lion on the land. 17C6FAD1-DAC8-4DA5-B35B-2FD3D2681A9F
This is what the Bible mentions about Jesus who is Messiah the king of Jews, and the savior for the sin of His people. And yet the first paragraph of the gospel book of Mathew, was begins with the genealogy of Jesus.  This picture would show my site is about telling you Jesus who is your king and your savior. Amen
