我所投靠的。他是我的盾牌,是拯救我的角,是我的高臺。」 詩篇 18:2

 

趕快興起為主作工
張麥惠敏傳道

Stm 2有一天,我在家外門前的信箱收到一封用手寫來的信,內心很好奇,因為在今天的世代已經很少人用筆寫信了,很想知道是誰寫來的信,於是立刻翻開來看看,原來寫信人是來自異端的信徒,他們也附上一些單張,解釋他們的信仰並邀請人去參加他們的聚會,我住的那條街每一戶都收到他們用手寫來的信。他們是何等的努力,何等的付出,這實在值得我們基督徒去反思,今天我們為著這福音作了多少工呢?願意基督徒都興起來,努力為主爭戰!

在五月份,活證浸信會與短宣中心一起合作,舉辦了一個關愛社區福音行動,在每週二的早上,我們拍門探訪教會附近的社區,盼望將耶穌的愛、平安及福氣帶給我們的鄰居。當中,最令我感到鼓舞的,就是教會裡有幾位80多歲的長者,有的更要用手杖,他們不怕風雨,克服腳痛,他們都因主耶穌的愛,願意起來為主作工,他們的擺上,也成為我們的激勵。

主耶穌被父神差遣,成為了肉身來到世間,被釘死在十字架上為人類完成救贖,在十字架上祂說「成了」,因著祂流出的寶血,為人類還清罪債,成就了這救恩,但人如何可以得到這寶貴的救恩呢?主耶穌在復活後曾說:「父怎樣差遣了我,我也照樣差遣你們。」今日我們每一個信徒都是被主耶穌差遣到世上的,我們被差是要完成一個使命,這使命就是要去使萬民作主耶穌基督的門徒,讓人得知這實貴的救恩。約翰福音九章4-5節「趁著白日,我們必須做那差我來者的工;黑夜將到,就沒有人能做工了。」 願意我們基督徒不要躲在安舒的環境中,起來為主擺上,趕快興起為主作工!


年老的時候仍要結果子

黃德恩姊妹

Stm 3

我今年 81 歲,受浸於香港,除了年輕時在香港曾在詩班事奉,在現時所屬的教會做過司事和現在為組長外,從未想過自己有能力去佈道,加上近兩年行動不便,需要用手杖,每星期有4天還要去探望住在護理院年邁的母親,所以從未有機會去參與拍門佈道。

最近得知教會有一個關愛社區福音大行動,得到神的呼召,就去報名。到臨出隊的前一晚,竟然無緣無故就在家中的樓梯失去平衡,跌倒一下,弄傷了肋骨,當時我想魔鬼的攻擊好厲害,我第一次作拍門佈道就來攻擊我,我立即祈禱,求神保守我,令我第二天能夠如期出發。第二天,感謝神,雖然還有些少痛,但仍然可以出發,神好恩待我,當天給我一個好姊妹作拍檔,沿途都好照顧我。

這個經驗令我重拾傳福音的信心,我年紀雖大,口齒也不伶俐,但如聖經提醒我們:「他們年老的時候仍要結果子。」(詩92:14)完成了這幾次的拍門佈道,我克服了我的膽怯和學習到如何向陌生人傳福音,我會繼續去學習,正如聖經裡的迦勒,年紀雖漸長,仍可為主發光和作工。


為主尋找迷失的羊

何美玲姊妹


Stm 4教會今年是宣教年,「整裝待發,承接使命」教會邀請了短宣中心的彭師母來教導我們在社區鄰居拍門探訪,將福音帶給鄰居,將耶穌的愛傳給未認識主的人。

但我心想真的可以嗎?拍門會有人開門嗎?耶穌說:「在人是不能,在神凡事都能。」我們藉著祈禱,惟有求聖靈幫助仰望耶和華堅固壯膽,跟著短宣中心的姊妹出去拍門探訪,四個星期的星期二天氣都很冷,第四個星期二還下著毛毛雨,感恩每按一下門鈴就充滿喜樂的等待,等待迷失的羊可尋回,雖然有很多家中沒有人,有些不敢開門,每當有人開門我們便很歡喜,平時不會和陌生人說話的我就會從聖靈而來的開口介紹我們的教會,邀請鄰居來教會崇拜,希望能將福音帶給他們認識主耶穌,當中遇到很多是有其他信仰的,有拜偶像的,但我們都不放棄把主耶穌的愛和福音帶給他們,希望能讓鄰居知道神是只有一位,是耶和華,是昔在、今在、永在的真神。

在這四個星期裡拍了幾十家的門,只有三幾家說希望會、可能會、將會!當我有氣餒之際,得知我們其中一組探訪隊真的尋到一位失喪的靈魂,教會的傳道為她祈禱,叫她把一切重擔交給主,接受主耶穌基督為救主,決志認罪成為神的兒女,我就感動得難以形容,主耶穌說衪要尋找迷失的羊。原來是真的,是信實的,所以我更加明白之前的我是愚笨的,以為不會有人開門給陌生人,但原來藉著懇切的祈禱,從聖靈而來的力量去拍門,是一定會有得著的。從今之後我希望能藉著教會的教導,整裝待發,承接使命,繼續出去將福音廣傳,求聖靈幫助,阿門。

 

預備自己,作主精兵

謝寶珠姊妹


Stm 1最近參加了教會和短宣中心合辦的「關愛社區福音行動」,這次活動主要是探訪教會附近的居民。自覺信主那麼久,到外地宣教對我來說太遙遠了,不如試試街坊佈道吧,就這樣我參加了整四次的出隊。

每次出隊前,都會在教會集合;首先禱告唱詩、然後有靈修時間,之後再次唱詩,接著由彭師母教導我們一些技巧,應對方式等事宜,最後分組,大多是三人一組。每次學習去不同的環境佈道,有拍門佈道、商場佈道和商舖佈道;由一位有經驗的弟兄姊妹,帶領兩位初次參與的,而我就是其中一位新人。心口一個勇字,什麼也不懂,以為應該跟上門推銷差不多,只要臉皮夠厚就可以,重點只是要和對方打開話題。

但結果這次參與給我有兩處很深刻的體會:第一,神看重的是人的心思意念,只要我們願意踏出去為神作工,衪必與我們同工。看見那些有經驗的弟兄姊妹,他們除了有基本技巧外,還有諸般的智慧和對整個救恩的熟悉,跟陌生人用聖經真理對應如流,使我大開眼界,更加讓我清楚看到自己的不足,我真的要好好預備自己,作主的精兵。第二,原來在我們的社區,就是華人教會在同一條街上都有兩間,但仍然有那麼多的鄰居未認識耶穌基督。

正如經上說:要收的莊稼多,只是收莊稼的人少。我們是否願意作神的僕人,天天傳揚祂的救恩,使我們的鄰居也成為同路人,一同榮耀主名?

給基督徒的一封信:耶穌愛華埠本土宣教大行動 8 月20 - 25 日

親愛的基督徒們,你們認為有何力量能改變社區、改變生命.........可能,你從未想過耶穌愛華埠是一個走進社區走進人群中間的福音行動,我們就是:蹲下身子向露宿者分享福音,向坐在街頭與無家可歸者分享信仰,向來來回回身邊擦過的人群招手,向那些漫無目的和雙目迷茫的人群中穿插,目的就是要把神愛世人的福音帶進人群。我們堅信福音是改變社區改變生命的唯一途徑,福音本是神的大能,要救一切相信的,並且能改變「你」—基督徒的生命素質,不再一樣!

本土宣教大行動除了多倫多華埠中區外,也伸展東區至西區,並且用三語個人佈道培訓(國、粵、英),進行大型區域佈道,鼓勵住在東西南北面的信徒向華埠區居住的親友佈道,這是多倫多華埠區的教會和短宣中心向教會發出的「馬其頓」呼聲,也藉此佈道行動,裝備那些有海外長宣或短宣心志的信徒們,向不同人仕和不同語言的群體傳福音。

去年參加佈道人數 402 人,我們祈求主賜我們 600 人,把福音的震撼力深入社區各角落,也震撼著每一個參加者的心靈,不再為自己而活,乃是為主而活!主必快來!主啊!我願祢來!

Letter to all Christians : Jesus Loves Toron to Local Mission in Action ! August 20th – 25th, 2019

Dear brothers and sisters:

You may wonder how we can change our community, and how our lives can be transformed. Perhaps, you have never heard Jesus Loves Toronto is about walking into a community and share the wonderful Gospel to everyone we meet. Can we humble ourselves to share the Good News at the street corner with the homeless people and share God's love to them? We may also come across someone that are confused or feel purposeless in life. The reason we are here is to bring the Gospel message of "For God so loved the world" to people from all walks of life. We firmly believe the power of the Gospel is the only way to transform lives and to transform a community that we live in. The Gospel of Christ is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes. It is capable to transform you, and definitely, it can transform your Christian life, so that it is no longer the same.

Besides having this local mission in the core Chinatown area, we will extend our mission to the east and west of Chinatown, along with the personal evangelism training utilizing three languages(Mandarin, Cantonese, English). Hence, we are evangelizing a large area in downtown Toronto. We encourage all Christians living in all parts of Toronto to share Gospel to their friends and relatives in the Chinatown area. This is the Macedonia call to all the GTA churches from the downtown churches and from Toronto STM. Thorough this weeklong action in local mission, we can equip mission-minded Christians for long-term and short term overseas mission. They will be able to meet to share God's love to people of various social and ethnic background.

Last year, we had 402 people joining Jesus loves Toronto. We pray that God will give us 600 people this year, so that the impact of the Good News of Jesus Christ can deeply reached every corner of our community. It can also realign the hearts of all Jesus Loves Toronto participants, not to live for themselves, but for Christ. 

Our Lord Jesus Christ is coming quickly! Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

His servant,
Pastor Faith Pang

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6,7

患難 Trouble, Suffering

義人多有苦難,但耶和華救他脫離這一切。詩篇 34:19
The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all. Psalm 34:19

神是我們的避難所,是我們的力量,是我們在患難中隨時的幫助!詩篇 46:1
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

耶和華本為善,在患難的日子為人的保障,並且認得那些投靠他的人。那鴻書 1:7

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; Romans 5:3

我想現在的苦楚,若比將來要顯於我們的榮耀,就不足介意了。羅馬書 8:18
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18

因為你們蒙恩,不但得以信服基督,並要為他受苦。腓立比書 1:29
