34th Anniversary of Osaka International Church. The role of Pastoral Assistants is explained based on Biblical references and in light of the ministry and organization of OIC.
As the new year begins, let us continue to check our spiritual health in all areas.
When you die, you can’t take it with you, but you can send it on ahead.
When we hide ourselves in the cave of darkness, God comes and asks us “what are you doing here?” and tells us “Go out”. Cave or darkness is not for God’s children, because He loves us and wants to free us from darkness into His light. If we only trust Him and let Him work in us, He will surely do that.
We come to know Christ more through understanding God’s presence and work in and around us, and through us.
互いに相手を受け入れなさい。 The church of our Lord Jesus Christ is divided in many ways, but we should all look for and rejoice in even small steps toward unity.
すべてをささげて : What does it really mean to follow Jesus… wherever, whenever, and/or whatever?
教会で仕える: If we live for God and for others, we die to self. And in that process, we will discover a new life, a life filled with joy and peace, a life wholly focused on pleasing God.
