Dear brothers and sisters of RCAC,

Recently, I read a testimony of a newly baptized sister. She shared about how God spoke to her through His word and walked with her in her ldaily struggles. She had gained comfort and strength to carry on. She had experienced how real God is in her life.

God is real and He lives! Not like any other religions. Jesus was not a mere religious figure who was here and then left. Not only does His impact continue, but He Himself lives on. We worship a living Savior Who indwells His church and all believers even now. Those who truly believe in Christ, will experience a glorious transformation and become a new creation in Him (2 Corinthians 5:17). All believers can see how God leads and walks with us in life.

As the lyrics of the hymn “He lives” says, I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the world today; I know that He is living, Whatever men may say; I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer, And just the time I need Him He’s always near. He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today! He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way. He lives, He lives, salvation to impart! You ask me how I know He lives: He lives within my heart.

“He Lives” was written by Rev. A. H. Ackley. The hymn has encouraged and strengthened God’s children for many years to growin their faith to God. It is also a challenge to all who seek God to experience how real He is. My heart echoes with the lyrics. Yes, He loves us, cares for us and walks with us always. He will never change, yesterday, today and forever!

The OMF prayer group during my school days always ended with the Lancashire Sunday School song: “How good is the God we adore, Our faithful unchangeable Friend: Whose love is as great as His power, And knows neither measure nor end!”

It is a true blessing to know Christ, to have Him as our Savior. Our God is so real. Let us follow Him closely and trust Him whole-heartedly.

Your servant in Christ,
Pastor Jeanie Auyeung
