‘My Joy, My Crown’

 

How can I thank you enough for the last 4 years and 7 months! I don’t think I have deserved the wonderful grace bestowed upon me during that time. Having been born to a family of unbelievers, it had been a special blessing for me to become a child of the Lord, and then the Lord called me to be His shepherd. I am overwhelmed with emotion at the honor of having served you as the Senior Pastor here in this great church, and the fact that I have served the Lord for more than 30 years after His calling.

 

For a long time I mulled over what to say to you today, then suddenly I was reminded of Apostle Paul and his most beloved church at Philippi. He wrote to the Philippians, “You whom I love and long for, my joy and my crown, you should stand firm in the Lord, dear friends!” (Philippians 4:1b)

 

This is so right. You have been my joy and my crown, nothing more is needed to say. Your love has always been generous and sufficient. Each smiling or sad face of yours has been so clearly carved in my soul that I will never be able to forget any of you. As I firmly believe that we will meet each other again when we get to heaven, I want to share with you ‘Returning home to heaven’, a poem by Sang-Byung Chun, instead of saying goodbye.

 

I will return to heaven,

Hand in hand with the morning dew,

That vanishes when dawn’s light appears.

 

I will return to heaven,

When the clouds give me the signal

After playing with the twilight alone at the foot of a hill.

 

I will return to heaven,

When my excursion to this beautiful world ends,

Then I will go and tell I had a beautiful time here.

 

For the last 4 years and 7 months, I had a beautiful time here, which I will never forget. How can
