We ARE the Church

When Christians meet me — a Christian newspaper boy — they always ask, “What church do you belong to?”
And I often tell them, “I AM the Church! YOU are the Church! We, ALL of us born-again Christians are the Church.

The Church is the Body of Christ. All of us who have received Jesus as our personal Saviour have become a part of the Body of Christ consisting of all the millions of born again believers, wherever we are, wherever we come from, whatever we look like, whether we are rich or poor, black or brown, left or right, young or old, East or West, male or female, etc.”

“And”, I add, “Whether we are called Orthodox, Protestant, Catholic, Presbyterian, 7th Day Adventists, Bread of Life, True Jesus, Mormon, Recovery, Jehovah, or even those of us without any label or any church denomination! Like ME!”
“You mean that you don’t belong to any church or denomination?
“That’s right, I don’t have any label, denomination, official organisation, foundation, or building that I attend on Sunday morning.”

“What? You don’t go to church?”
“I told you. I am the Church! How can the Church go to church? YOU are the Church! Those Christians over there in this amusement park, are also the Church! Church with a big C!”

But how do you fellowship then?
Well, you are a Christian, I am a Christian, and we are fellow-shipping here right now in His Name, sharing the Word of the Lord! And     “Where two or three are together in My Name,” Jesus said, “there am I in the midst of them.
So WE are the Church of this street/park/school/university/shopping center that we are standing in, right now!”
“Huh? That’s weird!” Continue reading “We ARE the Church”

Witnessing Tract to Give to Church People! True Comics Colour Gospel Tract

TrueComicsWhen we go out witnessing & tracting, we often meet church people. Almost every time they will ask, “What church do you belong to?” or “Where is your church!”, while they scan the tract for some address.
We answer, “Right here! You and I are the Church of Jesus! All the saved, born again believers in Jesus are ALL the Church! We all are the body of Christ, the temple of God.”But then we try to explain that our job is not to go into a church building, but to go out witnessing to the people who have never heard, and then this tract comes in very handy. for the Chinese one see next post. We hope that you can use this when going out tracting to inspire and train the church people to learn how to do it. Maybe we can reach the entire world before Jesus comes?

Can you just imagine if EVERY Child of God in this world would go out regularly – like at least once a week – to reach others with the Gospel? Man! We would turn the world right-side up! Of course Taiwan being a Buddhist country, here in Taipei one sees very few active Christians that are doing street or university or wherever outreach. That’s why it is so inspiring to meet another Taiwanese passing out tracts! We met one a few months ago at Yuan Shan station who did. We had a great time together. May more of them come out and reach the unreached!! How about you! Would you like to even leave your own country and become a missionary to another Asian land? They sure need you. Cheers! Lu.

Can God’s Children Mess Up TOO Much?

Sure, even God’s kids can mess up too much. But not with God! I mean that in a way of, we can mess up our bed, mess up our kitchen, mess up our lives, even commit suicide! But it is not God that is doing it. God always has hopes for us, even when we mess up, thinking we messed up too much. I messed up losts of times, and Big Time!

Sure we reap results from our sins and sinning, but it is not God sending it. It is like Karma coming back to you. God always has a positive spin for us, even if we wind up killing someone and land in jail, or get sentenced to death. A sin unto death! God will still be there for you, and take you on from there.

Oh, you don’t think so? Well, how about King David! He stole someone else’s wife and then killed her husband! Was that the end of David? No! Because he had some sweet special deal with God? No way! He paid for it. He lost their first son and some other discipline came his way. But God didn’t give up on him? God’s way up is down! Continue reading “Can God’s Children Mess Up TOO Much?”
