Christian Life| The Way to Avoid Being a Slave to Sin

By Christopher, Philippines

My name is Christopher, and I’m a pastor of a house church in the Philippines. In 1987, I was baptized and returned to the Lord Jesus and then by the Lord’s grace, in 1996 I became a pastor in a local church. At that time, I was not only working and preaching in many places around the Philippines, but I was also preaching in places such as Hong Kong and Malaysia. Through the work and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I felt that I had inexhaustible energy in my work for the Lord and endless inspiration for my sermons. I would often offer support to brothers and sisters who were feeling negative and weak. Continue reading “Christian Life| The Way to Avoid Being a Slave to Sin”

Testimony | Why Engage in Trickery When Serving God?

Why-Engage-in-Trickery-When-Serving-God.jpg

By Hu Qing, Anhui Province

I remembered the first time I saw God’s words saying: “Those who serve as leaders always want to have greater ingenuity, to be head and shoulders above the rest, to find new tricks so that God can see how capable they really are. … They always want to show off; isn’t this precisely the revelation of an arrogant nature?” (“Without the Truth It Is Easy to Offend God” in Records of Christ’s Talks), I thought to myself: “Who has such nerve to try to find ingenious new tricks?

How should one experience God’s judgment and chastisement in order to attain salvation?

Relevant Words of God:

To summarize taking the path of Peter in believing in God, it is to take the path of pursuing the truth, which is also the path of truly knowing oneself and changing one’s disposition. Only by going the path of Peter will one be going the path of being perfected by God. One must be clear on specifically how to take the path of Peter and how to put it into practice. First, one must put aside his own intentions, improper pursuits, and even his family and all things of his own flesh.

Gospel Worship Song | An Awakening Through Judgment

II

Through God’s judgment, I see my ugliness. I flaunt myself with doctrine, decorate myself with words to deceive others and myself. I follow the Pharisees, yet claim to be loyal. Without the reality of God’s words, I have no likeness of man. Clinging to religious tradition is not worshiping God. If I cannot accept His judgment, my belief will be empty. God tests man to see if they possess the truth. No matter the suffering, without truth it’s nothing. His judgment saves me, awakens my heart. I’ll seek and live out the truth to please God.

Christian Testimonies | An Arrogant Believer’s Process of Transformation

An-Arrogant-Believer’s-Process-of-Transformation.jpg

By Zhang Yitao, Henan Province

“God, Your judgment is so real, full of righteousness and holiness. Your revelations about the truth of mankind’s corruption have left me thoroughly exposed. I think of how I expended myself and busied myself solely to gain Your blessing. I imitated Paul, toiling and working, so that I could stand out from the crowd. Your words of judgment made me see how selfish and contemptible I was. I fall to the ground feeling ashamed and abashed, too unworthy to look upon Your face.

Resolving the “Cold War” Makes My Life Even Happier!

Resolving the “Cold War” Makes My Life Even Happier!

Tian Yu

When I got married, my family advised me that “All lay loads on the willing horse,” that after marriage, I must be in charge so that I’m not taken advantage of, so that my life will be fulfilled and happy. So, after marriage, I always wanted to be in charge and that whatever I said would go. In the beginning, my husband would consult me for all matters big and small in our home. But as time went on, he would often not consult with me, but do things according to his will. Because of this, I felt rather unhappy. I felt that my husband didn’t take me seriously.
