这是我受洗时的个人见证,没有中文的,英文也soso,请谅解。

My Testimony
-- I rely on God for my entire life


Ladies and Gentlemen, Sisters and Brothers:

My name is L. My wife is V. We have a daughter, L. She is 10 years old. We came from China.

I once had a broken marriage. It was God saved my marriage and my family.

16 years age, I met a beautiful girl and we got married 2 years later. She was my wife V. I tried to be a good husband, but I failed. We had many different habits, opinions, and interests. I always asked her why she didn’t understand me, and I tried to change her. The result was we began to be angry at each other.

I read a lot of books about marriage, tried to find some ways to help my marriage. But it was useless. I thought if we had more money it would be better, but it did not work. I thought if we had a child we would stop to quarrel with each other, but it didn’t change. I thought if we moved to a new place the problems perhaps would be resolved, so we moved to Shanghai – a bigger city in China, but again we began fighting with each other.

In China, there is a slang saying: “Marriage is the tomb of love,” It means when you got married, your love will end. At that time, I believed it was true. I was like a sheep, lost my way.

I didn’t know God. I didn’t know Jesus Christ. I didn’t know the Good News. I was living for myself, and doing what I want to do.

And then we applied to immigrate to Canada. At that time, I still believed if I could earn more money, my life would be better. But one week before we came to Canada, we separated, because I couldn’t stand her anymore.

When we arrived in Canada, we ended up living in two different cities. Some friends introduced me to learning English in Church. I began to come to the Church every Friday night. I learned English song from the Church. I remembered the first song I learned was “Amazing Grace - how sweet the sound”. I learned the pronunciation from D.I. She was so nice. I met many teachers and friends, but I never told my situation to anyone. At that time, I began to know God. I knew the God was looking for me. But I refused, because in China, since my childhood, I have learned this song: “There is no Savior in this world, and we should be saved by ourselves”.

Although 3 months late, my wife and I got together again through friends’ help, but we still got angry at each other. I never forgave wrong things what she had done to me. 3 months late, we separated again. But this time, God came to save us. I think this was a miracle. Right on the day when we separated, my wife and I took my daughter to learn piano. This was first time we met my daughter’s piano teacher – a Christian. She found out our situation and immediately told us: “Both of you have to know God.” And then she spent several hours to tell us her story: how the Lord saved her marriage when she and her husband had similar situation like us. On the following day, the piano teacher brought us to a Sunday service and to study the Bible in the church. Since that day, I have been going to church to worship God and study the Bible.

I know that God loves me so much that He sent his only Son – Lord Jesus Christ – died upon the Cross, for me, and for my sin. I know I have sinned in my thoughts and actions. I am sorry for my sin and ask His forgiveness. One day, I prayed to Lord Jesus Christ and asked Him to come into my heart, come in as my Saviour to cleanse me. I became a Christian. Since that time, my life began to change.

I attended “A Christian Home” marriage class. I learned a lot from the Bible: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-5).  I learned how to love my wife, how to love other people, as Jesus loves me. When I feel angry, I pray to God in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ: Lord, please help me to calm down, and help me control myself. When I recall her past actions, I pray to God: Lord, help me to take those things aside, throw them out from my mind, and do not let them bother me anymore. In the beginning, it was really difficult, but God always help me to go through the troubles.

3 months later, my wife, my daughter and I moved to a new home.  And we have been living together until now. Every morning, when I leave home, I always give a kiss to my wife. She likes it. She is really happy for this. It is sure. My daughter always reminds me to do this. She likes we have a happy family.

Before, I never believe miracles, but now, I believe. God is a living God. When I pray, He always answers. Whenever I am close to God, my family is better, and whenever I am far from God, there are always some problems in my family. I believe there would be no love and peace in my home without God.  I rely on God in my entire life.

Now, I really want to thank each and everyone who has helped me. If I mention all their names, it will take you a whole night. I think Pastor did not permit me to do this. And other people are waiting to stand here. Anyway, I want to pray now:

Dear heaven father, thank you, thank you for every amazing thing that you have done in my life. Thank you for sending sisters and brothers to help me. I trust you because you are a living God. I know I am whom you love. I will serve you all the remaining years of my life. Pray in Lord Jesus Christ’s Holy name. Amen.

How could I find a job?

My name is L. I have been in Canada for more than three years and was baptized this past  May. At that time, I was studying to be a civil engineer in college and I wanted to be a construction estimator. I believed that God would prepare a suitable job for me, because I trusted God and that He loved me.

After that time, I experienced a challenge in my faith.

This past April, when I finished my courses and began my Co-op, I started looking for a job. I thought it would be better to find a job before July 13 because I would not have income after that. It was my mistake to set up a deadline with God. I said to God: I trust you my Load, so give me a good job before July 13. You have three and half months to prepare a job for me.

The next week I got my first interview, and almost a success, very close. But at last, they were concerned about my speaking. They said: Sorry about this. We don’t doubt your skills, but you need to communicate with other people when you work. I thank God for having given me that opportunity, to let me know my weakness. So I tried my best to improve my English.

After that time for three months, almost every week I got interview. Each time I felt that I improved from the last. There was even one time, a manager said sorry to me but he also introduced me to another company. I felt closer and closer to success each time. But I always failed. Most of them were concerned with my English skills. I began to wonder if God had  prepared a job for me. What time and where? Or had God wanted me to do another job?

During that time, when I was in Bible Studies, all my brothers and sisters in Christ prayed for my job situation. My family was also involved. My wife began to read the Bible. We began to pray together with my daughter.   

Up until early July, I did get a job. One of my friends, who worked at Pizza Pizza, told me that I could work there first, and continue to look for another job, because I have to put food on the table to support my family. I thought, “Maybe it will take a long time to get a professional job, because it is not easy to improve my English.” I said yes. And then I started to look for a delivery job in Pizza Pizza. I printed and read the menu. I tried to remember all names of the Pizzas and toppings. I practiced the restaurant English. I went to Pizza Pizza shops and left my name and phone number to the manager. Soon I got a chance. One owner gave me training and told me that he would call me the following weeks.

After July 13, the deadline I set up to God. The owner of Pizza Pizza did not call me. I still had no job. On July 17, after finishing a Bible Study, sisters and brothers prayed for my job situation. They said you have to trust God, his answer may be yes, may be no, may be wait. When I came home, my daughter and my wife prayed for me too. The next day, I had some time, so I tried to call some companies. I found out one company’s manager actually didn’t refuse me after my interview and I called back to ask him what had happened.

I called him and said, “Hi, I am L, do you remember me?”

He said: “Yes, I remember you. I am sorry. I was quite busy those days so I didn’t call you back. Could you come this Friday? My boss will see you.”

“Of course,” I said, “I am waiting for this.”

To my surprise, God gave me the job. The company is a family business company owned and operated for 40 years. They are so nice. My manager introduced his family to me. He has 3 kids. One was just born in 4 weeks ago. It is why he is so busy. They weren’t concerned with my accent and were willing to teach me. My boss was not only teaching my job skill, but also teaching me how to make coffee. Last Thursday, the boss taught me how to make Cappuccino, and told me: Enjoy your work. You can make Cappuccino any time if you like.

God just let me waiting for a more week and teach me how to trust Him. Thank you my heaven father. I know what you give to me is suitable to me, it is better than I hoped. Although sometimes I doubt, you still love me so much.

Through this I learned the verse from Bible in James 4:2,3: You do not have, because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, …

This is my story about how I could find a job.

道路·真理·生命 - 我怎样从无神论者成为基督徒
http://my.backchina.com/forum.ph ... &fromuid=244655

我从小在无神论的环境下长大,我所认识的人当中,没有一个是基督徒,甚至没有一个是有其他宗教信仰的。在这样的环境下,在不断的无神论教育洗脑下,也自认为是一个彻头彻尾的无神论者。

文革以后,虽然开始对自己的信仰产生怀疑,加入了当时“信仰危机”的大军。但在世界观上,仍然是属于唯物论和无神论的。我开始认真思考有没有神这个问题是气功和特异功能现象引起的。那时,隐藏了多年的气功大师纷纷出山,正是严新走红,到处做带功报告的时候。

当时有一个气功大师,在苏州体育馆表演。他在发功时,我在看台上感到自己的心跳加快。另外他表演了气功催眠。受催眠者当中有一个我认识的,会后告诉我,被催眠时,头脑很清楚,但就是不能动。

那时也是特异功能者张宝胜崭露头角的时候。我曾听到南京军区一个人说到他一个战友在北京见张宝胜时,张宝胜请他抽烟。后来那战友发现原来他自己口袋里的香烟不知怎么到了张宝胜手里。这是最初听到的意念移物的实例。后来上海华东师大物理系一位谭老师到我们系来介绍他们在北京对张宝胜特异功能所做的研究,讲了一些亲身经历的张宝胜意念移物的事情,并且放映了他们拍摄的录像。录像拍摄的是张宝胜用意念将一个物体从封闭的管状玻璃瓶子里面拿出来。玻璃瓶子是全封闭的,没有洞眼,没有口。若这是微观现象,或者可以用量子力学的“隧道效应”来解释。但对于这一个宏观现象,纯属不可能,明显违背了物理定律。所以我只能认为是一个超自然的现象。我相信所拍摄的是真实的,这位谭老师也没有必要来骗我们。他如果是为了要搞科研经费,应该去上级单位才是。

这些超自然现象使我开始相信有神的存在,但却是糊涂的。当时认为条条道路通罗马,所有的宗教都是一样的。这样差不多有一年时间。

当我还不认识神的时候,还在寻求的时候,,神已经带领我,为我预备了道路。就在我处于人生这样一个重要的转折关头,彷徨徘徊的时候,神借着环境带领我,来到自由的国家,有机会接触圣经、接触基督的福音。

接下来的几个月时间,我参加了查经,也自己读创世记、约翰福音等。这段时候也有机会读到梁燕城博士的《传统溯源》(他后来写的《静思宇宙玄秘》,包括了这本书的内容,并增加了不少新内容)。

当我读到耶稣说“我就是道路、真理、生命”时,我想没有人敢说这话。从耶稣所说的话、所行的神迹,他的超凡品格,我相信他就是他所宣称的。和耶稣的神迹相比,气功大师及特异功能者都不过是雕虫小技。梁燕城博士的书中提到他打坐到一定程度也有接触灵界的经历,但他觉得“灵验的不一定出自善良的根源”。我也曾去过在南京召开的一个气功研讨会,听到一些气功界内幕。曾经在广州召开的一次气功表演会,气功师之间互相斗法。许多人嫉妒严新,发功干扰他。另外也了解到这些气功表演是真真假假,也有当场露馅的。

耶稣说他就是通向神的唯一的道路(the way)。没有其他路可走。梁燕城在打坐时曾感觉有一条通向无穷无尽的路,但却是往下而不是往上的。所以他觉得奇怪。创世记里面记载雅各梦见一个天梯往上通向神那里,有天使上去下来。耶稣说,“我实实在在的告诉你们,你们将要看见天开了,神的使者上去下来在人子身上。”(约翰福音 1:51)所以耶稣说他就是那个通向神的天梯。耶稣说:“若不藉着我。没有人能到父那里去。”(约翰福音 14:6)耶稣就是那通向真理、通向生命、通向永恒的唯一道路。

耶稣又是那唯一的真理(the truth)。以前只有人说某个理论是真理,却没有哪一个人说自己是真理,也没有哪一个人敢说、配说自己是真理。而耶稣说自己就是真理的本体。通过与自己以前所相信的“真理”比较,我不得不承认他所宣称的是真理。例如根据阶级斗争理论,富人就是有罪的,钱多就是有罪的。其实没有钱的人也会去偷、去抢。而圣经说,贪财是万恶之根。所以不在于有钱没钱,而在于一个人的内心如何。人的罪首先是内在的,是从内到外的。外在的罪行不过是内在的罪性的表现而已。耶稣说,“我实实在在的告诉你们。所有犯罪的,就是罪的奴仆。”(约翰福音 8:34 )对那些不认自己的罪的,耶稣说,“你们若瞎了眼,就没有罪了。但如今你们说,我们能看见,所以你们的罪还在。”(约翰福音 9:41)耶稣告诉我们只有真理能使人脱离罪的捆绑:“你们必晓得真理,真理必叫你们得以自由。”(约翰福音 8:32)

耶稣又是那永恒的生命(the life.)。  耶稣说:“信子的人有永生”。(约翰福音 3:36)以前只知道人总有一死,人死如灯灭,一了百了。原来不是这样,这真是美好。

我被基督福音的真理所折服,在那一年冬令会决志信主,神的恩典从此临到我,一生一世随着我。信主后,圣灵光照我,使我看到自己实在是个罪人,需要主耶稣的宝血来洗净。

我这一生所做过的决定中,这是我从没有后悔过也绝不会后悔的一个决定。我这一生最大的遗憾,是信主太晚了。感谢神,他没有离弃我,他拣选了我,使我有永生的确据。希望那些还在寻求的朋友,早日得到基督福音的好处,不再有和我一样的遗憾。

那要不要饶恕希特勒呢?要不要饶恕侯赛因、本拉登、东条英机、冈村宁次、台湾连环杀人犯陈进兴呢?不饶恕 ...

饶恕人必须与被饶恕人在所饶恕的事上应有直接的关系。一个人不能替别人饶恕人,而别人要饶恕人是别人自己个人的事。
