Good morning healing team!
If this is your first time to receive an email from us, Welcome to T Chiropractic and Acupuncture!
I hope all of you had a great Easter.
I took a short mission trip to Japan during Easter. I had an opportunity to lead a Bible study session.
I have made five short mission trips to Japan since last June. Every time I was there, I visited my parents and two of my best friends from childhood.
When I was on the first short mission trip to Japan last June, I told my friends I am here to find a mission trip partner church in Japan. They said “Oh’ religion thing…” then awkward quiet moment passed for a few seconds then moved on to another conversation. Thank God.
The Second trip in last September, I had Philippians 4:13 t shirt on when I had a dinner with my friends.
“For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
One started translating a verse in Japanese but he got stuck translating at “through Christ,” so I explained what it means. He liked it and asked if he can have my t shirt, so I gave it to him.
On the fourth visit, I shared the Good News with them and had great discussions.
On the last visit, the one whom I gave Philippians 4:13 t shirt had questions about the Bible and we had deeper discussions. He said he wants to read more about Bible. I had an extra Japanese Bible (Special thanks to those who has supported Japanese Bible), so I gave it to him.
I found it is not easy to share the Good News with those who know almost everything about me. I was afraid to be rejected and lose the relationship with them.
But God gave me a chance to share about Good news in fourth visit and see what happened in fifth visit? I cannot wait what will come next.
“15 And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.
If you are a child of God, you are called to do so.
“36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.
If you are a child of God, you have His love in your heart.
I recently learned that love I have is because of His love. There are a lot of things I have done because I know His love. There are tons more I should have done because I know His love.
You do not want to know my selfishness love. It is not kind and loving.
In order to know God’s love, you have to experience His love.
If you want to know Disney world, you can go to Disney world to “experience” it, but can you go to heaven without knowing Jesus?
“6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.
Well, we have tons of children of God on earth. If you are, people can experience His love through you. No travel and tickets required.
Let people experience God’s love, whom sacrificed Jesus for us, through you. Let His love spread to the world through you.
Have a great weekend!
