全是神的恩典
All By God's Grace

​郑国聪牧师和师母
Rev. Joel Chang & Jane CMO
  

2006年,我蒙召和太太一起全时间服事神。过去,我是一个独居的人,不喜欢沟通,也不太让别人帮助自己,以致常常靠自己用血气服事神。

 

在这16年的服事里,我感谢江牧师和邢牧师多年来的爱与信任,并差派我们一家去怡保开始GB611灵粮堂。我记得江牧师曾对我说过一句话:“服事神,不要怕麻烦。”我以为,只要我很努力做好每一件事,就可以省下麻烦,但我发现自己原来是一个怕麻烦的人。当我放下自己的doing的时候,我发现越麻烦的事,越要依靠神,没有神,其实很简单的事情也会搞砸。

我感谢神,我的属灵父母江牧师和邢牧师常常不怕麻烦的爱我、鼓励我、接纳和包容我的软弱,也教导我正面沟通的方法,如今他们更提升我为牧师。

被按立为牧师是神对我的拣选和恩典,也是给我的扩张。我相信神要扩张GB的境界,在怡保开阔新的领域,拥有新层面的发旺,我盼望GB能效法母堂GA,得地为业。

在此威谢江牧师和邢牧师多年来的栽培和成全、太太的帮助和孩子们的配合,还有GB同工们和弟兄姐妹的支持和关爱,让我今日得以按立成为牧师。愿一切荣耀颂赞都归给神!

My wife and I were called in the year 2006 to serve God fulltime. In the past, I was a loner, avoided communication, would not receive any help from others, thus resulted in my serving God mainly in the flesh.

 

In the last 16 years of my church ministry, I am truly thankful to Rev. Esther and Rev. Amos for their love and trust. They believed in us to send us as a family to Ipoh to establish GB611 Bread Of Life Church. I remembered the word which Rev. Esther had spoken to me:

"Serve God and fear not troubles", I reasoned that as long as I do everything well, I will have no trouble, but what I discovered was I was one who feared troubles. As I learned to relinquish my "doing", I realized that whatever was more troublesome, the more I would need to trust God, without God, even the simple things would not turn out well.

 

I am thankful to God that my spiritual parents, Rev.

Esther and Rev. Amos took pains to love and encourage me, to accept and put up with my shortcomings, whilst teaching me the positive way of communication. And today they even promote me to be a Reverend.

 

To be ordained as a Reverend is God's election and grace on me, being also His gift for extending my sphere of influence for His purpose. I believe God desires to extend the territory of GB, that we may open up new areas, to possess success in new levels. It is certainly my prayers that GB may emulate GA611, our mother church, to possess a land as our inheritance in Ipoh.

 

I would like to take opportunity here to say thank you to Rev. Esther and Rev. Amos for their patient nurturing and empowering, also the collaboration of my beloved wife and children, not least are also the support and kindness of all our GB co workers as well as the congregation, as together, they have made It possible, for my being ordained as a Reverend. Let all glory, honour and praises be accorded to our God!
