FROM THE PASTOR’S HEART

Feb 2018

Dear New Horizoners,

Dear New Horizoners,

We started the year with the grand celebration of the church’s 5th anniversary. My heart is so filled with thanks as I reminisce the many wonderful things the Lord has done for us.

As I waited on the Lord during my personal retreat, He reassured me that though there are many obstacles seeking to hinder the church from fulfilling the vision God has shown us, He will give me the strength and wisdom to overcome them. The fact is, I know the Lord has called me to the ministry and placed me in New Horizon Church. Therefore, I am confident that the Lord is with me. He will lead me as I follow His way and obey Him in every situation.

God also spoke to my heart that He who called me is faithful, and that He will fulfill it (1 Thessalonians 5:24). I should fear nothing but God, and just trust Him all the way.

While there may be many challenges ahead facing us, I can also see that there are many great things God wants to accomplish in the church in the years to come. Meanwhile, we just need to allow the Lord to rebuild our lives, restore our homes, and renew the church, in order that we may see the wondrous works of the Lord.

“Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.”
(Joshua 3:5)

Praying for you,

Pastor Lawrence Koo

牧师的心声

2018 年 2 月

亲爱的新天际教友,

教会以一场五周年庆典开始了这一年。当我回想起主为我们所做的许多奇妙的事时,我满心感恩。

当我在个人退修期间等候主时,祂向我保证,尽管有许多障碍阻碍教会实现上帝向我们显示的异象,但祂会赐给我力量和智慧来克服它们。其实,我知道我的事工是应着上帝的呼召,而且是祂把我领到新天际教会的,所以我相信主与我同在。当我遵循祂的道路,并且在任何情况下都顺服祂的时候,祂将带领着我。

上帝也在我心里说,那召我的本是信实的,祂必成就这事(帖撒罗尼迦前书五24)。我必须只敬畏上帝并一路信靠祂,就无所惧怕的。

虽然我们可能会面临很多挑战,但我也可以看到上帝在今后几年想要在教会里完成许多伟大的事情。与此同时,我们只需让主重建我们的生命,修复我们的家园,更新我们的教会,我们便能看到主奇妙的作为。
“你们要自洁,因为明天耶和华必在你们中间行奇事。”(书三5)

为着你祈祷,

丘牧师
