2018年林書豪見證會

【永不言棄-林書豪生命見證會吸引3000粉絲】

由基督教角聲佈道團主辦,五個州82個教會及機構參與的「林書豪生命見證會」,於9月15日在聞名全美的布碌崙會幕教會(The Brooklyn Tabernacle)舉行,近3,000人出席。聚會在中午12時開始,但等待進場的人早在上午10時前已大排長龍!大部分是華裔青少年,來自于紐約本地以及美東各州。

此次盛會的主領者,除林書豪外,還有深受年輕人喜愛的繞舌歌星歐陽靖(MC Jin)、布碌崙「會幕」教會創辦者辛傑米(Jim Cymbala)牧師,角聲音樂藝術學校的Joyous Ensemble亦參與演出,並由交響樂團配搭演出多首傳統聖詩,場面溫馨感人。

歐陽靖以活潑歌聲揭開盛會序幕,引起陣陣吶喊。他分享說:「自己的信仰歷程深受阿姨Cathy影響。在他小的時候,Cathy常常告訴他,耶穌愛他,並邀請他參加暑期聖經學校,在當中他明白了什麼是團契生活。之後他像世人一樣曾追求當明星、被粉絲簇擁、金錢以及豪車的生活,雖然口中說唱著讚美上帝,但內心仍然空虛。直到經歷到生命的破碎、失望與沮喪,他才再次回到上帝的面前,發現信仰不是宗教形式,而是要真實地明白上帝愛世人,甚至讓他的獨生子為我們的罪而死的真理。他也鼓勵在座的年輕人,雖然你們對未來都有很多的計劃,但要相信上帝會為你們指引正確的道路。」

去年10月,林書豪在比賽時受傷,造成右膝髌韧带断裂。當時林書豪難過的表情,以及連續說了多次 「 I’m done 」(我完了)的場景,都令觀眾們印像深刻。如今,林書豪再一次站到熱愛他的觀眾面前,以《Never done》(永不言棄)為主題,向觀眾分享了他的心路歷程,他說:「過去的五年,我每天訓練三次,一直在等待上場的最佳時機,卻因為去年的一次右膝受傷,無法比賽。我只能一邊復健恢復,一邊等待。眾所週知,NBA籃球選手的職業生涯是短暫的,而我在職業生涯最寶貴的時期卻只能等待。我哭過,也曾問上帝,我努力保持身體最佳狀態並且認真訓練,為甚麼上帝不能祝福我?經歷了一年的低谷後,上帝讓我看到,當我們與上帝有一個個人的關係時,再大的困難也會變成祝福。即使我右膝受傷,被轉會,並且外界充滿負面評價,但我深知上帝愛我,所以我無需懼怕。此外,上帝對我們都有一個完美的計劃,即使這個計劃我們當時還不明白。因此,雖然經歷這樣的困境,我不會輕言放棄。」觀眾們被林書豪真誠的分享所感動,全場爆發出熱烈的掌聲。

辛傑米(Jim Cymbala)牧師也借舊約聖經大衛經歷的一段故事,告誡人們:「盜賊來,無非要偷竊、殺害、毀壞;我來了,是要叫羊得生命,並且得的更豐盛(約翰福音10:10)。仇敵也許偷的不是金錢,不是物質上的東西,但是卻會偷走我們與上帝相處的時間。因此,在困境中,我們更要依靠上帝,從仇敵手中奪回失去的產業。」

當辛傑米牧師呼籲台下作出回應時,超過500人來到台前接受救恩以及再次與上帝立約,願意一生為上帝而活。

角聲關懷佈道部主任陳黃秋紅表示:「除了感謝眾教會支持参與,角声全體同工上下一心努力工作外,這場見證會讓我深深感受到上帝的同工,改變人心的能力! 」

此次見證會聯合林書豪、MC Jin以及布碌崙會幕教會和辛傑米牧師,再加上來自五個州的82個華人教會及機構,共同完成一場屬靈盛會,可說是基督徒合一的美好見證。

Introduction
On September 15 2018, Chinese Christian Herald Crusades (CCHC) will work again with Jeremy Lin, MC Jin and The Brooklyn Tabernacle Senior Pastor Jim Cymbala to organize the Evangelistic Rally – The overall theme is “Never Done”.

    • Ephesian 4:3 “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace”

The following are few highlights of last year event:.

With assigned barcode, it will be easier to return the response cards to inviting churches.
Also, this year the ticket will include the response card. This will streamline the check in process.
