As your new pastor, I could not be more excited to join this community. With each passing week, I continue to learn more about the different cultures represented in our congregation. My prayer for our church is that we would know God’s grace and be known as a gracious community that loves Jesus.
This week, I met with some of the other international pastors in the city, and I was significantly encouraged by our time together. Much like our church, there were many different backgrounds and nationalities represented. As we worshiped and prayed with one another, it became abundantly clear there is only one name to proclaim: Jesus.
Jesus is the one who brings us all together, and He is the one who holds us all together.
"Wonderful grace of Jesus, Greater than all my sin; How shall my tongue describe it, Where shall its praise begin?
Taking away my burden, Setting my spirit free; For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.
Wonderful the matchless grace of Jesus, Deeper than the mighty rolling sea;
Wonderful grace, all sufficient for me, for even me. Broader than the scope of my transgressions,
Greater far than all my sin and shame, O magnify the precious Name of Jesus. Praise His Name!
Wonderful grace of Jesus, Reaching to all the lost, By it I have been pardoned,
Saved to the uttermost, Chains have been torn asunder, Giving me liberty;
For the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.
Wonderful grace of Jesus, Reaching the most defiled, By its transforming power,
Making him God’s dear child, Purchasing peace and heaven, For all eternity;
And the wonderful grace of Jesus reaches me.” H. Lillenas 1918
By Grace, we love Jesus, one another, and the people of Hong Kong
