The word of God was delivered by Sister Anna, taken from Psalm 119: 105.
Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. (NKJV)
We all must have ever experienced a blackout in our homes. When the lights go out, our house will definitely be dark and we can do nothing. Especially if it happens at night, when we are working on college or school assignments, all of a sudden our room lights turn dark. What will we do? We will definitely try to find a tool to illuminate our room, whether it’s a flashlight or a candle that can give out light, so that when we walk, we won’t stumble on something.
Just like when the lights go out, we will try to find a flashlight to light up our room. It’s the same with our lives, we also definitely need a helper who will guide and illuminate our paths. Especially in times like this, surely we need help in our lives.
As written in Psalm 119:105 that it is only the Word of God that will illuminate our ways and guide our footsteps. In times like this, we don’t need to worry or feel confused about what to do because we’ve stayed at home for too long and so we feel frustrated. There is God who will always help us, guide our steps, and light up our paths.
If you are studying in college at the moment, you don’t need to worry about it for God will help you. We need God and God’s Word to light up our steps. Therefore, let us come to the Lord Jesus and invite Him to come in and light our way.
How happy it is because there is God who guides us. So, let us start our day by reading God’s Word because it will guide our footsteps. Now, we are no not alone anymore for there is God who will guide and illuminate our every way.
We can also share this good news to our friends, so that they know that there is God who helps and looks after them. We have to be passionate and committed again to serving God. This is the time for us to come to God and serve Him even more.
The preaching of the Word of God continued by Sister Tika, taken from Matthew 8: 1-3, Jesus healed a leper.
Matthew 8: 1-3 When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. (2) And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” (3) Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. (NKJV)
The Lord Jesus is the guide and guardian of our lives. Nothing is impossible for Him. He is always there for us in every condition, even in difficult situations, He is there to guide our steps. We are not alone because we have Lord Jesus who will enlighten our lives.
And the good news is that Jesus is also able to heal our sicknesses. In the past, a person affected by leprosy was neglected because his leprosy was contagious. The leper man in this story knew that he was not worthy to come before God, so he came bowing and worshiping before God. He came and said to Jesus ““Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” And Jesus’ first response was ““I am willing; be cleansed.” And Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
This Word of God was very touching. It shows that Jesus is always kind and longs to give the best for us. Just like our father at home, when we ask for something, the first response from our father is to give the best to us. So, it is the same with our heavenly Father, He wants to give the best for us. The Lord Jesus always knows how to delight our hearts, especially nowadays, maybe we stay at home, we feel bored because we cannot meet our friends, but there is one faithful friend, His name is Jesus.
Perhaps there are those of us who are sick at the moment or in the hospital or we feel that no one cares about us. But this word of God says that we need to come to God and ask His help and He will surely heal and help us because He is the one who guides our lives and who is able to help and accompany us at our every step.
