Consider your ways! Consider STMT and E-band

Bro Yap Chuan Yu

“Then came the Word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying, Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, And this house lie waste? Now therefore thus said the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.” (Haggai 1:3-5) 

Every year, we make resolutions. To witness to at least ten people, to share the gospel with 12 of our colleagues…We pledge to God that we will talk to our loved ones and friends on God’s love and salvation. Yet more often than not, we would fail to deliver our promises and pledges. We are very much desirous to obey Jesus’ commandment to preach the gospel to all nations. Yet year after year, we regret, confess our sins of failures and start all over again and again. 

If this is who you are, consider your ways. Consider joining the Evangelistic-band. E-band is a door-to-door Church evangelistic effort to reach out to the neighborhoods. E-band is a group of brethren, going to neighborhood to give out gospel tracts, inviting residents to our Church services and children to Awana. There are ample opportunities for you to share the gospel and you will be surprised that there are so many who have not heard about gospel, and of our Savior Jesus Christ. Join the STMT and E-band and you will fulfill your pledges and deliver your promises to God on evangelism. 

If you have not experienced

. slamming of door in your face;

. mockery (“you Christians are worse than non- believers”);

. slandering (“your god is not as high as my god”);

. humiliation (he is polishing his toenails while you are sharing with him the gospel);

. rejection (“take back your tracts, I am not interested”); 

consider your witnessing life. Being mocked or slandered when sharing the gospel is part and parcel of Christian life at end times. Consider STMT and E-band. STMT and E-band will provide you on-the-job training. Initially, you will inevitably sweat and fear but eventually, even when faced with adversities, you will have become bold. 

C H Spurgeon once told of this story. “An infidel once met a Christian. ‘Because,’ said the other, ‘for years you have passed me on my way to my house of business. You believe, do you not, there is a hell, into which men's spirit are cast?’ ‘Yes, I do,’ said the Christian. ‘And you believe that unless I believe in Christ I must be sent there?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘You do not, I am sure, because if you did you must be a most inhuman wretch to pass me, day by day, and never tell me about it or warn me of it.’” 

This is a hard language and meant to hit us hard. If it did not have a hard impact on you, consider your ways. Consider joining the STMT and E-band. 

检讨自己的景况!考虑参加短宣队及个人布道

叶传宇弟兄 

于是上主藉着先知哈该把以下的信息转告人民。他说:我的子民哪,我的圣殿荒废着,你们却住在建筑华丽的房子里!现在我——上主、万军的统帅要你们检讨自己的景况。(哈该书1:3-5 

我们每年都立志要做许多事。向至少十个人做见证,向12 位同事分享福音我们承诺上帝我们会跟家人朋友宣扬上帝的爱和救恩。但我们常发现自己不能信守我们的承诺。我们都很想顺服耶稣的命令,向万国传福音。但年复一年,我们都懊悔时光的流逝,为着我们的失败而认罪,重新再来。

如果这里说的正是你的景况,那么请检讨自己。考虑参加本地布道。本地布道是到教会邻里的每家每户去进行布道。参加的弟兄姐妹们到邻里去分单张,邀请住在附近的居民来一起敬拜上帝并把孩子们带来Awana。分享福音的机会很多,你也会惊讶地发现其实还有许多人不曾领受福音甚至是听说过我们救主耶稣基督。参加短宣队及个人布道,履行上帝所托付你的大使命,信守你对祂的承诺。 

如果你不曾有以下经历:

. 人在你面前用力甩门;

. 耻笑(你们基督徒比非信徒还要糟糕);

. 诬蔑(你的神没有我的神高强);

. 耻辱(你与他分享福音时,他正在修剪脚指甲);

. 拒绝(把单张拿回去,我没有兴趣 

那么请重新审视你见证的生命。在这末世,分享福音时被耻笑和诬蔑是一个基督徒生命的一部分。考虑参加短宣队及个人布道。这同时也是个实地的训练。刚开始时,你或许会害怕恐惧,但是不久后你将即使是面对视时也能坦然无惧。 

真就曾经说过这一个事。一个教徒在见一位基督徒是说到:年来,你重来没有向我传过福音。你是真相信有地狱吗?基督徒说: ‘信。 那人继续说到:你是真相信基督救,否则每个人都要到地吗?’ ‘是。’‘不,你肯定信。为如果你真相信但却复一选择缄默,不告我也不警诫我,那么你肯定的人! 

这听起来很严肃,也该如。如果你听仍然无动,请检讨自己的景况。考虑参加短宣队及个人布道。
