A Word From The Editor

Kita bersyukur kepada Tuhan atas rahmatNya dan kasihNya yang begitu besar kepada kita. Pada saat kita merayakan Jumat Agung, kita diingatkan kembali atas cinta kasih Kristus kepada kita dimana Ia merelakan diri untuk disalibkan dan menanggung segala penderitaan supaya semua dosa kita ditebus olehNya. Saat kita merayakan Kebangkitan Kristus, kita bersyukur bahwa Yesus telah bangkit dari kematian menunjukkan kemenangan atas maut sehingga pengikut Kristus dijanjikan beroleh hidup yang kekal dengan Yesus di sorga. Kita mau senantiasa berdoa untuk gereja kita supaya seluruh jemaat bisa terus bertumbuh dalam pengenalan dan cinta kasih kepada Yesus, dan kita mau saling menguatkan dan mengasihi satu sama lain sebagai tubuh Kristus.

Kita akan merayakan Hari Ibu pada tanggal 10 Mei. Kiranya kita bisa mengingat cinta kasih ibu kita dalam mendidik dan membesarkan kita, dan kita mau berdoa supaya Tuhan memberkati dan melimpahkan mereka dengan sukacita dan damai sejahtera.

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,

Three Persistent Challenges for Evangelical Christians in America—A Father’s Perspective

My son will turn eight years old next month. Ten years from now he will become a fully grown-­‐up man. Like any other good parents, I pray that he will be a more faithful follower of Christ than I am. But I think most parents will agree with me that becoming a faithful follower of Christ is getting more and more challenging day by day. America is changing rapidly, and it is sadly becoming less friendly toward evangelical Christians. So I wonder, what are some tough challenges my son will likely have to face a decade from now when he is a grown up? What do I have to do now to prepare him to face up the challenges? ..... More

The Invisible Almighty God
Author: Wilson Suwanto

Everyone is born with the sense of God. You don’t have to see God, and you don’t have to be told that there is a God. The knowledge of God is clear from the conscience and the creation. There is a universal sense of right and wrong, which points to the existence of God as the Lawgiver. Every fabric of the created world bears witness to God as the Creator. By this logic, everybody should believe in the true God, and there shouldn’t be any debate about it. But we know that it’s not the case..... More

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

The apostle James in his letter James  1:1-16 talks about “trial and temptation”.  He uses the same Greek word “peirasmos” to describe “trial” and “temptation”. “Peirasmos” can mean both “trial” and “temptation”.
