Good Monday afternoon healing team!
I hope you all had a great weekend.
Well, I got some scriptures for you. Here we go!
“12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. 13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!”
16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
God send Jesus for our salvation. Yes, it is true we can do the same works or even greater works. We can share the Good news to anyone on this earth and it will eventually lead to salvation, that will bring glory to God.
“7 But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! 8 When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.
16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.
God will give you anything you need to produce fruit, which brings glory to Him. It’s all start with sharing the Good news.
I have a missionary friend in Japan. Sharing the Good news in Japan in not easy. Only 1 % of Japanese are Christian.
He recently fractured clavicle (Collar bone) and needed to have surgery. Of course he was spiritually, physically and emotionally down.
“Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” 43 Then an angel from heaven appeared and strengthened him.”
Jesus prayed this prayer before He arrested and crucified. I believe it was the hardest time of His life on the earth.
God responded Jesus prayer with verse 43.
If Jesus need an angle to strengthen him, we all need an army of angels to strengthen us!
I asked men from my life group (Church small Sunday school) to send emails to encourage my missionary friend in Japan. They did and emails definitely encouraged him.
It is not anyone’s plan to fracture clavicle and go to hospital. However, God opened a door of opportunity to share His love in the hospital he stayed at.
My friend stayed in the hospital for three nights and he shared the Good news with those who would never heard about it if he did not fracture his clavicle.
God works in miraculous way.
You may be stuck in the situation you don’t want to be in and waiting for a door to open so you can get out of the situation.
Just step back and look around.
Can you see anyone around you who needs to hear the Good news?
In order to produce fruits, someone needs to plan the seed.
Then he said to the disciples, “Anyone who accepts your message is also accepting me. And anyone who rejects you is rejecting me. And anyone who rejects me is rejecting God, who sent me.”
Don’t worry about rejection, they are not rejecting you, rejecting God….. but just for now.
Have a great week!
