A Word From The Editor

Kita bersyukur kepada Tuhan atas kasihNya yang tidak berkesudahan melimpah dalam hidup kita. Dia selalu ada disisi kita untuk menolong dan menuntun kita dalam kehidupan kita. Banyak hal yang terjadi di sekitar kita, dan kita perlu sadar bahwa Tuhan bekerja dalam segala perkara maupun yang kelihatannya tidak baik untuk membawa kita lebih dekat denganNya dan bersandar kepadaNya. “Kita tahu sekarang, bahwa Allah turut bekerja dalam segala sesuatu untuk mendatangkan kebaikan bagi mereka yang mengasihi Dia, yaitu bagi mereka yang terpanggil sesuai dengan rencana Allah” (Rom. 8:28).

Pada saat kita merayakan Jumat Agung dan Paskah di bulan ini, kita mau mengingat penderitaan yang Yesus alami demi penebusan dosa kita. Karena cinta kasihNya yang begitu besar terhadap kita, Yesus merelakan hidupNya sebagai persembahan yang mulia supaya kita bisa memperoleh keselamatan. Kita bersyukur bahwa Yesus bangkit dari kubur pada hari yang ketiga melambangkan kemenangan atas maut supaya kita yang percaya kepadaNya akan menikmati kekekalan hidup bersama denganNya. 

Kiranya Tuhan terus memimpin langkah kehidupan kita sebagai umat Kristus dan biarlah kita mau dipakai oleh Tuhan supaya orang-orang disekitar kita bisa merasakan cinta kasihNya yang sejati melalui kita.  

 

Blessings,

The Invisible Almighty God

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

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
