A Word From The Editor

Kita bersyukur kepada Tuhan bahwa bulan misi sudah berjalan dengan lancar. Khususnya waktu puncak acara di Konferensi Misi, kita bisa belajar dari Rev. Dana Ostby bagaimana tantangan dan pergumulan yang dia alami sebagai missionary di Indonesia dan istrinya yang menderita penyakit terminal selama sepuluh tahun. Kita bisa belajar untuk terus bersandar kepada Tuhan dan meminta kekuatan daripadaNya di saat kita mengalami tantangan hidup. Kiranya kita bisa selalu memiliki semangat bermisi untuk menjadi saksi Kristus dimana pun kita berada melalui interaksi kita dengan teman-teman atau anggota keluarga kita.

Mengingat tema gereja kita yaitu Kristus, Pusat Hidupku, kita mau belajar untuk menempatkan Yesus sebagai yang terutama di kehidupan kita setiap saat. Sering kali kita berdoa lebih banyak untuk diri kita sendiri supaya Tuhan memberkati kita, tetapi kita juga perlu ingat untuk mendoakan orang lain. Kita mau berserah kepada Tuhan supaya Dia menjawab semua permohonan doa menurut kehendakNya dan waktuNya saja. Kita mau selalu bertekun dalam doa dan mencari wajahNya setiap saat karena Dia adalah tempat perlindungan yang sejati dan tidak pernah meninggalkan kita.
Kiranya Tuhan terus memimpin langkah kehidupan kita sebagai umat Kristus dan biarlah kita terus memancarkan sinar Kristus didalam hubungan dan interaksi kita dengan orang lain. 

Blessings,
Steven Sutjandra

The Trials of Faith
Author: Rev. Stephen Hosea

The Greek word of “trial” is “peirasmois”. It is the same Greek word used for “temptation”.  So “peirasmos” can mean both “trial” and “temptation”. It is like a coin with one side is temptation and the other side is trial. In order to understand whether it means “trial” or “temptation”, we must look at the context of the passage in the Bible.  In James 1:2-3, James uses this word for “trial”. In James 1:13-16, he uses this word for “temptation”.  In 1 Peter 1:6-7, Peter also uses this word for “trial”. I would like to focus my message here on “trial”.... More

We have access to hundreds of thousands of good sermons today. Online, radio, digital books, and smartphones are devices that provide access to good sermons on God’s word. How can God’s word in Amos 8.11 be true today? We have abundance of God’s word, not famine. Yet, God says that He will send a famine of hearing the words of the Lord... More

Menyenangkan Tuhan

Ada orang-orang yang kita rindu untuk menyenangkan. Sebagai seorang ayah, kita ingin menyenangkan anak kita, misalnya dengan cara membelikan mainan kesukaan mereka, atau makanan favorit mereka. Sebagai seorang suami, kita ingin membuat istri kita bahagia, misalnya dengan memperhatikan kesehatan dan menolong tugas rumah tangganya. Sebagai anak, kita juga ingin membuat orang-tua kita berbahagia, misalnya dengan memperhatikan kesehatan di usia mereka yang sudah lanjut. Ketika mereka berbahagia, kita merasa lebih berbahagia... More
