New Life Exhorts Members to Take Up the Cross to Follow Jesus

sunday service

New Life Community Church held a graceful Sunday service on June 5. Six people joined the service and fellowship. Minister Cindy Chou delivered the message from Acts18:23-19:7.

"Apollos was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. He knew the book of law and prophets very well. Through learning these books, he knew Jesus is the one who came to us according to God's promise. However, It's not enough that we know Jesus is Christ. We need to go further step. That is to participate Jesus' life, we need to carry the cross together with Jesus, walk together with him. Aquila and Priscilla taught Apollos the deep meaning of cross and resurrection so that he can become a person who refuted the Jews in public debate, providing from the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ." Chou exhorted all the attendees to carry the cross to follow Jesus as they live their life.

After the service, everyone had a good time of breaking bread and fellowship. Newcomer Eral shared, "Thanks for God speaking to me through the message. We know Jesus is Christ. That's not enough. It reminds me we need the baptism of Holy Spirit every day. I need to follow the Spirit to live my life. I usually have work on Sunday but today I got off so I came. I hope I can come when I am off."

Jafre shared, "I hope I can practice the message more. Eat the lamb's head, legs, and inner parts. I hope Holy Spirit can come to my heart to change me."

Everyone shared their own cross in their life and meditated how to carry the cross to follow Jesus. After sharing, they had a free Chinese class with one newcomer who joined.

Please pray that New Life members can take up the cross to follow Jesus and live their life to experience the power of the Holy Spirit!
