Edmund Chan's Message #2
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20
Pastor Edmund Chan began his second message sharing with our Global Leaders sharing this verse suggesting the Church is losing ground in much of the world today.
Why? He quoted Pastor Joseph Tson who told Adrian Rogers,
“The American Church has substituted commitment for surrender!”
As Galatians states, we must be crucified. That means our entire lives – not just a portion of it! We must move from being committed Christians to being crucified ones.
Edmund went on to share that surrender isn’t giving up. It is giving in! God wants us to come INTO his life. It is only as we surrender ALL and allow Christ to live IN us that we become His disciples.
Have you surrendered all? Do you, as we say at Asian Access, LIVE in a Love Relationship with God? Does he permeate your entire being? Are you, like we often say ALL IN with God?
I was convicted. How about you?
Joe Handley, President
"I believe that the test of leadership is found in the third generation. It involves mentoring leaders who would reproduce leaders. This is why I thank God for Asian Access! It is an outstanding movement that's strategically committed to sustainable leadership development! Mentoring leaders. Multiplying disciples. YES!!!”
