Dear beloved family in Christ
This coming Lunar New Year festivities may be subdued understandably because of continual Covid-19 restrictions and concerns. Where there are opportunities to meet up with family relatives, good friends and friendly neighbours, let us pray for a meaningful and joyous time together.
As you enjoy the delicious food and friendly conversations, may the Lord bless and guide you in his love and grace to bear a good testimony for Jesus and reflect the glory of God in your life.
- RESPECT – Always be ready to give due honour and respect to our family elders and appreciate them for being such a blessing in our lives.
- UNDERSTAND – Take time to hear the life stories of family and friends and understand their hopes, fears and struggles during such challenging times.
- CARE – May the Lord grant you a sensitive heart to discern the needs of your family, friends and neighbours, so that you can minister, show care and help them.
- PRAY – As you share in conversation together, commit your family and friends to the Lord prayerfully in your heart for God’s grace of salvation.
The harvest field need not be just about crossing the seas to a foreign land. But it is seeing the cross at the places and among the people where God has positioned you.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
