Short-term Missionaries Experience the Fruit of Bible Telling 短宣實習生見證說聖經故事的果效

短宣實習生 見證 說聖經故事 的果效

Tony and Andy with their little sister.

On Thursday nights, Ruth teaches English to Tony and Andy.  Sometimes their father, Stanley drops in and studies along with them.  What has made this study lots of FUN for everyone has been the honest questions about the Bible stories used.  Recently, short-termers Matthew and Malina helped introduce the story of the call of Abraham. “Does this story give you any questions?” they asked.  Stanley could not believe Abraham could actually be the father of as many children as the number of sand grains on the seashore, “Unless,” he said, “They are people who believe just like he did, children by virtue of their belief.  Like you, Andy, you are Teacher Ruth’s child by faith!”  When Ruth heard this, she just had to show Stanley Galatians 3:7–“Understand, then, that those who have faith are the sons of Abraham.”  Needless to say, it was like the light dawned for Stanley and his boys!  But Andy asked, “How do you know these stories are true?”  Matthew encouraged him, “Tonight before you go to sleep, just ask God if He’s real, and see what He says!”  What a comfort to know God loves him more than we do!

The greatest joy is seeing God’s Word draw people to faith in God!  That is why Bible Telling is the Harbours’ favorite evangelistic tool–whether it’s on visits in  homes, in schools, at church, or tutoring English!  “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God!” (Rom. 10:17)

每週四晚間,路得會教Tony和Andy英語。有時他們的父親Stanley也和他們一起上課。對每個人而言,這個課程充滿樂趣的原因是所使用的聖經故事及所問的問題。最近,短宣實習生- Matthew 和 Malina對他們講了亞伯拉罕被呼召的故事。

“你們聽完,對這個故事有什麼問題嗎?”

Stanley不相信亞伯拉罕的子孫可以真的像海邊的沙一樣多””除非”他說,”所有像他一樣相信的人,都算亞伯拉罕的子孫。像你一樣,Andy,你相信路得老師所相信的,你就是路得老師因信而生的孩子!”

當路得聽到這番話,她讓Stanley看聖經加拉太書3章7節—”那以信為本的人,就是亞伯拉罕的子孫。”無疑地,這段經文對Stanley父子不啻是一道曙光! 但後來Andy問,”你怎麼知道這些故事是真實的呢?”

Matthew鼓勵他,”今晚上床前,你可以問上帝,祂是不是真實的?看他會對你說什麼!”

知道上帝比我們更愛他,這真是令人感到欣慰!而看到神的話語吸引人來相信上帝,這是最大的喜樂! 這也是為什麼講述聖經故事,一直是我們(何牧師夫婦)最喜歡使用的傳福音工具-無論是在拜訪家庭、在學校、在教會或是在教英語中..!

信道是由從聽道來的,聽道是從基督的話來的。(羅馬 10:17)

INTRODUCING Taiwan Harvest 119 Founded by Mark and Ruth Harbour on March 1, 2016, this vision and mission is to take possession of the west coast (more resistant area) of Taiwan for the Lord Jesus Christ by planting life-changing family cell-groups in every neighborhood. Telling God's Story from Creation to Christ is the foundation for on-going discipleship, training disciples to train others who will train others. Our hope is in the Lord, and our calling is to 1) Pray for Spiritual Awakening on the island, 2) Train and Encourage West Coast Church Planters, and 3) Mobilise Resource Churches and/or individual missionaries (both in Taiwan and abroad) to connect with west coast church planting works and enable them to reach their neighborhoods for Christ.
