  Missions Ministry 宣教事工
Renew mission to share gospel
Each year, the Church usually set October as Missions month. Thus, the Sunday messages for the respective services in October will be related to Missions.The 401 Missions Core Team will work out the theme for the year to come according to Church visions and directions. Guest speakers will be invited to preach in the Missions Convention to encourage and challenge the Church on Missions and renewal of their pledge to the Missions’Faith Promise.

One might ask: Do we need to repeat the same thing every year since we are aware and know these things? My answer is: Yes, we do. We live in an increasinglywicked generation, just like Timothy 3: 1-5 says: 【But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers ofmoney, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal,not lovers of the good,   treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather
than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.】

People whose faith are not strong living under such worldly condition will be influenced and affected by the world they are living in without them realizing or unconsciously affected without knowing. Not only their lives are affected but

their families are also slowly being influenced and affected. They even lost their sense of mission in sharing the gospel. Therefore,【Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. 】(Romans 12: 2)

As we “march towards the year of renewal”, set your hearts and minds on things above every day. May the urgency and sense of mission in sharing the gospel is even greater. Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you - guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.(1Tim 1:14)

I take this opportunity to thank brothers and sisters in Christ for being faithful to support the Church Missions work, physically, financially and in prayer. For God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.(Romans12:6-7)

更新传福音的使命
教会通常将每一年的十月份定为宣教月,各个聚会的讲台信息也会朝这个方向分享。而401宣教核心团就按着教会的异象与方向拟订下一年的宣教主题,并邀请讲员在几天的宣教特会里传讲和挑战全体会友并带领他们在上帝面前更新差传信心认捐的承诺。

有人可能会问:这些事我们都晓得了,还需要每一年重复做同样的事情吗?我的答案是:是的,非常需要。因为我们活在一个越来越邪恶的世代,有如提摩太后书3:1-5的记载: 【你该当知道,末后的日子必有艰难的时期来到。那时,人会专爱自己、贪爱钱财、自夸、高傲、亵渎、悖逆父母、忘恩负义、不圣洁、没有亲情、不肯和解、恶言中伤、不能自律、横蛮凶暴、不爱良善,卖主卖友,容易冲动、傲慢自大、爱享乐过于爱神,有敬虔的形式,却否定敬虔的能力。。。】

原来在社会文化及整个大环境的趋势上,信心不足的人将处在一个危机里,就是不知不觉的对这个趋势产生认同感,而且促使自己努力转换到那样一个角色。无论是思维、生活、甚至家庭都潜移默化的被同化,也失去了传福音的使命感。因此,我们千万 【不要模仿这个世代,倒要借着心意的更新而改变过来,使你们可以察验出甚么是神的旨意,就是察验出甚么是美好的、蒙祂悦纳的和完全的事。】(罗12:2)

迈向更新的一年,我们要在生活上天天寻求天上的事,也要思念天上的事。愿我们对传福音的使命感越发迫切,并靠着那住在我们里面的圣灵保守主交托给我们的善道。

在这里要感谢主内弟兄姐妹一直以来在人力、金钱及祷告上忠心支持教会的宣教工作。愿上帝照各人所作的报应各人,以永生报答那些耐心行善、寻求荣耀尊贵和不朽的人。
