PASTOR’S HEART

 

FROM THE PASTOR’S HEART

Dec 2017

Dear New Horizoners,

While writing this article, I realised Thanksgiving Day is fast approaching, and the year is coming to a close soon. I couldn’t help but look back and ask myself these questions:

1. Have I grown closer to the Lord?
2. What have I done for the Lord that matter most in His eyes?
3. Where am I now in my relationship with my loved ones?
4. Am I a better pastor / leader / person?

The things you reflect on in life reveal both your purpose and passion. I hope your life’s purpose and passion are in line with the Word of God. Personally, there are many verses in the Bible that I try to live my life by. The two most significant ones are:

“Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.” (Isaiah 26:8 NIV)

“Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.” (1 Timothy 4:15 NIV)

What are your life verses in the Bible? Would you also reflect upon your life based on these verses?

牧师的心声

2017 年 12 月

亲爱的新天际教友,

当我写这篇文章的时候, 我意识到感恩节快到了, 这一年也即将结束。我不禁回头问自己这些问题:

1. 我与主更亲近了吗?
2. 我为耶和华做了什么在祂眼中认为重要的事?
3. 现在我和亲人的关系如何?
4. 我是一个更好的牧师/领导/人吗?

你在生活中所反思的事反映了你的人生目标和热忱。我希望你的人生目标和热忱符合上帝的话语。就我个人而言, 圣经中有许多经文是我尝试着作为我生活的依据。其中两个最重要的是:

“耶和华阿,我们在你行审判的路上等候你。我们心里所羡慕的是你的名,就是你那可记念的名。”(以赛亚二十六8)

“这些事你要殷勤去作,并要在此专心,使众人看出你的长进来。”(提前四15)

圣经中有哪些是你的人生经文呢?你是否也会在这些经文的基础上思考你的生活?
