Theme & Title 今年主題

WCCCLC 2008:

神恩 "R" 4 Us: Got Gifts? God Gives!

Come Rediscover the Holy Spirit, Who Releases His Gifts. Be Reborn in the Divine Fire, To Renew Our World.

We are all special in God’s eyes. Each person is created uniquely and blessed with many gifts. Part of our purpose in life is to discover the gifts that God has given to us.

Matthew 7:7 says, “Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you.” God, knowing everything past, present, and future, gives us what is best for us. As a loving parent, He protects us from things that harm us, “What man is there among you, of whom if his son shall ask bread, will he reach him a stone? Or if he shall ask him a fish, will he reach him a serpent? How much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him?” (Matthew 7:9-10, 11b).

Some people may ask for things in life such as money, power, and fame. Yet, God came to us as a baby born in a manger, and died on the cross as an act of love to take away our sins. God will give us all the gifts that we need to be successful in His eyes.

Our Theme & Title this year also serves as a reminder that the gifts that we have do not really belong to us, but are gifts from God. Taking time each day to reflect on this will help us become more grateful for everything that we are given.

We chose to focus on the Holy Spirit this year because we feel that we do not know a lot about Him. We hope that by focusing on the Holy Spirit, He can help us discover (and re-discover) God’s gifts for each one of us; He help us ask for these gifts; and that He to help us use these gifts to create a better world for everybody.
