<與神同工的喜樂-We’re God’s co-workers> 4/13-4/19/15

 

兩周前, 我選擇性的發出以下的募捐信給教會較為相熟的弟兄姐妹, 反應出乎意外的熱烈, 有多位甚至願意更進一步, 參與 “3、2、5” 工程, 支持同工的需要。

 

最令我們感動的是一位姐妹的話: 「近水樓臺先得月」, 言下之意是因為我們先去接觸他們夫婦, 他們也認識我們在紐約的事奉, 因此感覺好像先得到「與主同工的喜樂」。這句話對我們很窩心, 聽後心中的甘甜久久沒有揮散, 像當年保羅所說: 「因為我知道你們樂意的心…並且你們的心激動了許多人。」(哥後9:2)

 

求主祝福報答每一位願意與主同工的弟兄弟姐妹, 也代表角聲佈道團全體同工謝謝您們的愛心支持!!

 

「我們與神同工的,也勸你們不可徒受祂的恩典。」(林後6:1)

 

親愛的弟兄姐妹主內平安,

 

我們被芝加哥教會差派到紐約投入宣教工場僅僅半年,神的恩典遠遠超過我們所求所想!

 

感謝各位一直以禱告托住我們, 使事工得以順利發展,在此同時也想向您們陳明一些特別的需要。

 

我們向來就不喜歡向人募捐, 即便是為神的事工來籌募, 往往也感覺難以啟齒, 總是害怕被拒絕而感到難受,寧願自己做個捐贈者,盡可能避免碰上尷尬的場面。

 

但經過黙想禱告, 再多思想神的話語, 才逐漸發現這種心態是有問題的, 因為我們倘若被很多的心理因素牽扯,不知不覺反而會妨礙了聖工的推展。

 

我們深深感覺, 大凡以 “自我” 為中心點的思想行為, 或憑個人感覺來判斷該不該做的事情, 都可能潛伏著與聖經原則相違背的危機。

 

我們開始領悟到為主國度的緣故向信徒、主內弟兄姐妹籌募事工的需要,其實是給神家裡的人有參與的機會, 讓他們成為事工團隊的一員。

 

許多像您們那麼愛主的信徒, 都很想參與建造, 但礙於各種客觀因素而不能直接投身特殊的工場事奉。除了代禱以外,其實您們仍然可以採用不同的形式來支持搭配。這也就是當年馬其頓教會多次請求保羅讓他們奉獻, 給他們機會參與的原因。(林後 8: 4-5) “並且他們所做的, 不但照我們想望的¸更照神的旨意, 先把自己獻給主, 又歸附了我們。”

 

因此我們相信,向信徒籌募支持事工的其中重要目的,是要為您們帶來更大的祝福, 是為各位的屬靈生命刻上一個里程碑, 使我們有機會一齊經歷 “與主同工”的美善。

 

每天我們看見「角聲佈道團」同工們竭力工作,為著服侍孤兒寡婦、癌症病人、還有那些生活在無身份無依靠的羣體而疲於奔命;並且在龐大的社區人羣中為主揚聲見證,好比在俗世的前方戰場為主爭戰, 搶救靈魂,同工們實在需要接取及時的後方補給供應。

因此我們就鼓起勇氣,不再為籌募的訴求而感到侷促不安, 因為我們深願把最好的祝福帶給主内的弟兄姐妹, 彼此配合組成一隊基督的精兵!

“As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain.” (II Corinthians 6:1)

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 

Peace be with you all!

 

We are so thankful for God’s abundant grace through your prayer support, ever since we were commissioned to New York by our mother church in Chicago six months ago.

 

Indeed we are truly blessed for engaging in the strategic ministries at CCHC.ORG and have made great strides in serving the community as local missionaries.

 

While we want to give all the glory to God, there are lots of unmet needs we want to draw your attention to.

 

Until recently, we both were quite coy to ask people for donations, even for the sake of ministries, for the sole reason of not wanting to face embarrassing rejection. Most of the time we would rather become donors ourselves, so as to avoid those unpleasant moments.

 

Yet the word of God transforms our attitude as we read II Corinthians 8:4-5 when Christians actively sought to support Paul financially. They considered a privilege to engage in partnership with Paul and received God’s blessings. “They urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people.” (V.4)

 

Suddenly, it dawns on us that asking church members and Christian friends for donations to support strategic ministries, is in fact offering them the opportunity to become a partner in Christ.

 

Many Christians who love the Lord, like yourselves, are deprived of the opportunities to serve in the field due to variety of reasons. Yet through prayer and financial support, you instantly become a part of the critical supply line in our spiritual battle field.

 

Every day, we observe CCHC co-workers toil to serve the sick, the downtrodden and people have no hope in life. We labor hard to sow gospel seeds with limited means. With your participation, the landscape can change into a beautiful scene.

 

Therefore, we are not shy to ask for your support, so that you will receive His manifold blessings as being God’s co-workers. Please visit this link for further information:
