‘Trust is a gift’

 

Trust is a very important factor in our daily life at home, at workplace and in the nation, as well as in our life of faith. Once we believe a project is worthy of our trust, we put all of our energies and hearts in it for a positive and productive result. On the other hand, if the project didn’t have our trust, not only all the energies and effort we put in are wasted, but also our hearts and relationships get broken. 

 

For a church to function as the church of God, there has to be essential trust between the pastors and congregation and among the members of the congregation. I am not asking for your trust right now, but I am asking you to pray for me every day, so that I can be on God’s side. This wish will come true, with the help of your fervent prayers. Often people make mistakes in actions and thoughts, as they get influenced by circumstances or conditions. Consequently, it is not easy for us to trust people and sometimes we get hurt by our trust in people. In other words, we cannot easily trust others or be proven to be worthy of the trust of others. Therefore, we need to pray for the help from God.

 

Please include our pastors and me, parish leaders, cell group leaders and church council staff members on your prayer list. When all of us are on God’s side, our church can be more pleasing to God, and we will be more proud of our church, which will be more respected and sought after by outside people.

 

Some say that we live in “the age of distrust” and that it is really difficult to find people who are trustworthy. It is not wise for us just to wait for someone who is trustworthy to show up or for someone to become worthy of our trust, as waiting doesn’t provide any assistance to anyone, and it doesn’t guarantee any better world for us.

 

Let us pray that those who are not yet trustworthy will be on God’s side. When we believe that God will answer our prayers, our trust will be restored to us, and our spirits will also be restored. Trusting God, let us pray to Him earnestly from our hearts. Trust is a gift from God when we pray. I hope and pray that our church and our community will be truly restored during this Lent season of 2018.
