What to do during difficult times 如何面對艱難時刻

Matthew 26:36-46

In the past 14 months, all of us have been affected by the global pandemic. There are many unprecedented decisions that needed to be made in a short period of time. You may feel sad and distressed during this time. “How long, O Lord?”

Some of us have lost our jobs and loved ones. People are having historically high marriage and family problems. The church and family values are attacked from all directions. You may ask “who knows my pain and my fear, what can I do?” Does the Bible talk about it? Let’s look at what happened after the Last Supper.

Before Jesus was arrested, He took His disciples to Gethsemane. In Matthew 26:37, Jesus becomes anguished and distressed. Jesus tells Peter, James and John, “My soul is deeply grieved, even to the point of death” (Matt 26:38a). Jesus is saddened because He is going to take up the sin of the world and be separated from the Father. None of us will truly understand what Jesus felt at that time. But let’s see what Jesus did.

Jesus PRAYED and He also ASKED OTHERS TO PRAY for Him. He said, “stay here and keep watch with me” (Matthew 26:38b). The phrase “keep watch with me” has a notion of being focused and alert all the time. During this difficult time, Jesus not only prayed to God but also asked others to pray for Him. Are you willing to open up and ask your brothers and sisters in Christ to pray for you? It requires a lot of humility to share your needs.

On the other hand, if brothers and sisters share their needs with you and ask for prayer, will you earnestly and persistently pray for them? Will you even take one step further to identify their needs before they even open their mouths to tell you? I know many of you have Ring (a home security system). When someone comes close to your home, the motion sensor will sense the motion and will send a signal to your phone and you can see what’s happening.

Dear brothers and sisters, Jesus showed us how He dealt with His difficult time. He prayed and asked others to pray for Him. During this sorrowful and distressed time, let’s all pray for one another and walk through this tough time together. May God bless your family!

The Hope of Easter 復活節的盼望

We just celebrated Easter Sunday a couple weeks back. Easter Sunday is the most important holiday in the Christian calendar. It is even more important than Christmas. The very reason Christians gather

祂已經復活了! He Has Risen!

過了安息日,抹大拉的馬利亞,和雅各的母親馬利亞,並撒羅米,買了香膏,要去膏耶穌的身體。七日的第一日清早,出太陽的時候,她們來到墳墓那裡。彼此說,「誰給我們把石頭從墓門滾開呢?」 那石頭原來很大,她們抬頭一看,卻見石頭已經滾開了。她們進了墳墓,看見一個少年人坐在右邊,穿著白袍。就甚驚恐。那少年人對她們說,「不要驚恐。你們尋找那釘十字架的拿撒勒人耶穌,他已經復活了,不在這裡。請看安放他的地方。」(馬可
