Two days ago I had a chance to have meeting with Mrs. Fan Chan (Jireh Fund), Barbara (former Judge) and Rev. Gloria (NOW HOP) and have sharing. We discovered that Hong Kong this city has received God’s grace. Since two years ago, Hong Kong’s women had the longest average life in the world. Last year men in Hong Kong have the longest average life in the world. Not only this, two days ago Hong Kong was the place with highest IQ in the world. Hong Kong’s crime rate has major decreased compared with that of 2016. I believe, apart from Hong Kong people’s obvious improvement in different areas, God is pleased that we had prayed for this city. Hong Kong has God’s favour more and more.
Speaking about favour , I hope every family has more and more God’s favour. To achieve this goal, God has given some words for you and your family to have favour.
Favour comes from relationship, I believe God has given us grace is not because of religious ceremony. It is not because God loves you especially without reason. It is because you have done something to get closer and have intimate relationship with God, so that God answered your prayer and fulfil the desire of your heart.
“If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” (John 15:7)
To remain in God means always remain in Him, not once, not once in a while. We have to maintain a condition, to stay in God, that means to observe God’s word. To observe God’s word according to the passage is to observe His commandment, love each other.
“If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love.” (John 15:10)
“ This is my command: Love each other” (John 15:17)
Another condition of receiving God’s favour is bearing fruits.
“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.” (John 15:16)
Therefore, when we observe God’s word, love each other, God will please with us. Moreover, when we bear much fruits, we will have God’s favour. God will hear our prayer and “will give you.”
God bless you.
