我不是周杰伦。。。I’m not Jay Chou…

 

周杰伦是音乐才子,很蒙恩宠,我们都晓得。
周杰伦的粉丝和支持者之多可想而知,所以他的言行举止都可以影响很多人,无论正面或负面;所以那天在报章上读到(我也上载在我面子书)说,周杰伦已认真信主,并将在年底受洗,我们听了都雀跃万分,很是兴奋。

Jay Chou is a music prodigy and very well-favoured, we all know that.
So we can imagine the multitude of fans and supporters Jay has, so his every action and word can impact many people, whether positively or negatively. Therefore when I read from the paper that day (which I have posted on my Facebook too) that Jay Chou has seriously believed in Jesus and is going to be baptized end of this year, we were all very happy and excited to hear.

 

 

为着周杰伦信主受洗而高兴欢呼,当然没有错,也很应该,因为他毕竟是上帝所爱的。。。
但我们往往会忽略到的是“平常人”信主受洗时,我们仿佛没特别兴奋或激烈反应。事实上,不管是你、是我、或任何人,只要真心信主受洗,天父都一样开心和感动。。。

耶稣在路加福音15:10说:“我 告 诉 你 们 , 一 个 罪 人 悔 改 , 在 神 的 使 者 面 前 , 也 是 这 样 为 他 欢 喜 。”

Of course there is nothing wrong to rejoice and get excited because Jay Chou believes in Jesus and is baptized, and in fact we should, because he is someone God loves…
But what we often neglect is when “ordinary people” believe in Jesus and are baptized, we do not seem to be as excited or overjoyed. The truth is, whether it is you, or I, or anyone else, as long as we sincerely believe in Jesus and are baptized, our Father God is equally as happy and moved…

Jesus said in Luke 15:10 “In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

 

 

给我本身,看到老人家信主受洗,我会异常的感动。。。
因为在他们年纪老迈时,还有机会回到上帝面前的确很感人。。。
刚刚过的礼拜六,我们给56个人施洗,其中有7位是六十岁以上,照片中的房伯伯是当晚最年长的,85岁高龄!

Personally for me, I feel especially touched when I see the elderly believing in the Lord and baptized…
Because to see them having a chance to return to God when they are advanced in age is indeed very touching…
Just last Saturday, we baptized 56 people, and among them, 7 are above the age of 60. Uncle Fang in the photo is the oldest that night at 85!

 

 

当晚56个人受洗,天上的使者就大庆祝56次!同样的周杰伦受洗的那一天,使者也会大庆祝!
所以要晓得,你我虽不是周杰伦,天上还是会为我们庆祝的;因此也让我们记得,无论是谁信主,我们都要一样的欢喜快乐!

That night, 56 were baptized and the angels of God celebrated 56 times in heaven! Similarly, the day when Jay Chou gets baptized, the angels will celebrate as well!
Therefore do remember, you and I may not be Jay Chou, there will still be celebration for us in heaven; and let us all remember too, whoever it is that believes in the Lord, let us all be as happy and excited!

 

 

老实说,那一晚,为着这56位欢喜时,我心里也有一丝丝的伤感,因为往往我们受洗的人数都接近100人以上。。。
主啊,我们是不是救灵魂退步了?求祢保守我们的心,如同祢爱罪人的心一样,救灵魂从不放松、从不冷淡,阿们!

Honestly, that night, while feeling happy for these 56 people, I was kind of sad too in my heart, because normally the number baptized is about 100 or more…
O Lord, have we gone backward in saving souls? Do guard our hearts to be like Yours, to love sinners and save souls always, never to slack or grow cold, Amen!

So do seriously pray hard for me! Thank you.
 
 
 

 

 


這樣算是宣教嗎。。。? Is this considered a mission…?

 

那天我們從實兆遠搭船過去邦咯島宣教。。。
在碼頭我們好像遊客般拍照留念,因為。。。哇!這裡景色未免太漂亮了吧?

That day we took a ferry from Sitiawan to Pangkor Island for a mission…
At the jetty, we took photos for remembrance like tourists because… wow! The scenery here is really beautiful!

 

這簡直就是在國外吧?
整個團隊的人都失控的東奔西跑去拍照,因為多數沒到過國外,不能怪他們。。。

This is so like an overseas country!
Members of our team all lost control and ran everywhere to take pictures! Can’t blame them as most of them have never been overseas…

 

連我們酷酷的田聖按耐不住也留下倩影。。。

Including our Mr. Cool Daniel, he could not resist not taking picture too…

 

安排我們所有的聚會的Lydia姐妹非常照顧我們,也充當我們的導遊。。。

Sister Lydia who arranged all our meetings took very good care of us, and she was also our tour guide…

 

這麼舒服漂亮的環境算是宣教嗎?
其實只要是做主的工,無論甚麼環境都是宣教,重要的是上帝要你去哪裡,你就去那裡。

Is it considered a mission to go to such a comfortable and beautiful place?
Actually as long as you are doing God’s work, regardless of any type of environment, it is a mission. The important thing is go where God wants you to go.

 

 

這一帶有很多有錢人,你看這些私人游艇就知道。。。
嗯。。。其實我們只是路過這裡罷了,我們去的是漁村啦。。。而我們搭的也不是這些船。。。

There are a lot of rich people here, you can tell from the private yachts…
Hmm… actually we were just passing by this area, we were going to some fishing village… and we were not taking these boats too…

 

我們是搭乘一般的渡輪到島上啦。。。但也很舒服。。。

We were taking the ordinary ferry to go to the island… but it was very comfortable too…

 

半夜回程搭的船就有一點緊張。。。
還好這一次都是帶年輕人,整個團隊就我最老!

The boats that ferried us home in the middle of the night were even more exciting…
Just as well I only brought young people this time, I was the oldest in the team!

 

當時還下一點雨,但感謝主雨不太大,要不然都變落湯雞了。。。
大家動作也不敢太大,因船會搖撼,有些人不會游泳。。。
有些變得很安靜,不敢說話,怕講話也會加重重量。。。

It was drizzling at that time, but thank God not too heavy or we would have been drenched….
Everyone minimized their movements too because the boats were swaying, and some do not know how to swim…
Some became very quiet for fear that talking would increase our weight…

 

半夜冒雨在海上搭小船真的很刺激。。。
而且在黑暗中拍照真的效果也很特別,你看下面那張,起初我還以為前面拍到的是甚麼。。。

Riding a small boat in the rain in the middle of the night is really an exciting experience…
Also, to take photos in the dark, you could see some very special effects too…. see the photo below, look at the front, at first I thought what that was that I captured…

A friend from Medan, Indonesia, just sent me this photo to show me how serious the church there is in promoting my upcoming evangelistic concert in Medan at the end of February!
After seeing the photo, it really makes me feel nervous and pressured to some degree… and of course I’m very touched too!
We must seriously pray and hand over everything to the Lord and ask for His great anointing that we will really be a blessing and bring glory to His name, Amen!
The Remnant and the dancers will perform too, do pray for us fervently… thanks!
