God glorified is man fully alive
Every team member from Taoyuan, Taipei, Hualien, Kinmen and Nantou was able to be a part of the retreat in Taipei for Easter weekend. It was a time to remember God’s faithfulness to each of us in the past year and an inspiration to “die to ourselves” and “live unto God” as we walk with Him into the year ahead. Glory to God.
A major part of the time was spent hearing testimonies of the Lord’s work. As time went by, there wasn’t time for everyone to share–a process which has continued by email since then. Sunday morning, Wes contrasted Saturday with the Sunday that Christ rose again. What is God’s purpose in the cycle of disappointment and supernatural fulfillment? It is to remind us that we do not need to trust ourselves and that He is waiting to show Himself strong on the behalf of anyone who will follow Him whole-heartedly.
“One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple” (Psalm 27:4). As we live in His resurrection each new morning, every location we visit becomes an extension of His house, every step of life is a witness to the beauty of the Lord and the trials are but another loving reminder that we have the right and the pleasure of inquiring in His temple again.
