Monthly bible message of August 2019. “You have your origin in God”

You have your origin in God


Toyohiko Kagawa was one of the Christian leadersin the early 1900s. He also played an active part in social services. He is widely known as a founder of COOP (Consumers co-operative). His novel Shisen wo koete was serialized in newspapers and became a bestseller. But he had no hopduring his age of puberty.


When he was a junior high school student, his mother told him a terriblethingYou are not my child. You are the child of a mistress and your fatherOn hearing this, he tried to commit suicide. Im not loved. I was a person who didnt deserve to be born here.Isnt there anything shocking than this? The thing that disappoints us is that we cant find the value of ourselves and the meaning of life. 


Nowadays, many young people are worried that they cant accept their environment they grew up and their parents and cant find the meaning of life. Statistics show that the number of suicide of students has been increasing. They dont want to die. Although they want to live, they cant find the meaning of life, and they commit suicide.


Have you ever felt you were ignored in society or abused by someone? Have you ever thought you have no value?Do you know the meaning of life? If so, I want you to listen to the voice of God who speaks through the Bible.


You are precious and honored in my sight and I love you. (Isaiah 43:4)


According to the Bible, you were created as a unique and irreplaceable being in this world by God the Almighty who is full of love. Moreover, God loves you just as you are. In God, you have your origin and recovery of your life. Feel free to come to our church. I welcome you from my heart.

第208回 2019年8月のメッセージ「あなたという存在は神に起源がある」中西正夫牧師音声で聴く。

1900年代前半に活躍しキリスト教指導者に賀川豊彦という人がいました。教会だけではなく社会事業にもずいぶん活躍しました。消費者生活協同組合、略して「生協」これも彼が始めた活動でした。その小説死線を越えて」は新聞に連載されベストセラーにもなったほどです。思春期真っ暗闇中学生の時母親が夫婦喧嘩の腹いせもあってかとんでもないことを言われてしまいます「アンタは母さんの子じゃないよ。父さんが外で生ませた妾の子だよ」この言葉で彼は当時自殺を計ろうとさえするほどでした。「自分は愛されていない。自分はこの家に生まれてはけない人間だったんだ」

何がショックといって、自分の価値を見いだせず、生きる意味が分からなくなることほどショックはないでしょう。


今、多くの若い人が、自分の育った環境や親を受け入れられず又生きる価値を見いだすことができないで悩んでいます「自殺統計」中学生や高校生の自殺が多くなってきているのです。彼らは死にたくて自殺するのではなく、生きたいのに生きる意味がわからないといって死んでいくのです

これを聞いたり読んだりしてくださる人の中で、社会で無視されたり、虐待されたり、或いは何不自由なく暮らしていても、自分は何の価値もない、生きる意味が分からないと嘆いている人がいるでしょうか。そういう人がいたら、聖しいのです。

はあ高価はあている」

イザヤ43節)

聖書によれば、あなたという存在は世界でたったひとりのかけがえのない存在として、愛に満ちた全能の神によって造られたのです。はあをあす。にあ起源人生回復

July 2019 monthly message "The treasure more valuable than money"

The treasure more valuable than money


There is something in common among happy people.  That is “they are happy to have whatever they possess.”  On the other hand, there is also something in common among unhappy people.  They envy what they do not possess.  No matter how much they possess or how fortunate they are, they can never be satisfied.


In the Bible, there is a story about the man crippled from birth.  In those days, people with handicap could not get any job, and the only way to make living was to become beggars.  When Peter and John walked by the man, he begged for money as he always did.  But the answer from two was something unexpected.


“Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you.  In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk. (Acts 3:6, NIV)”


Was the man disappointed to find out he could not get any money?  No!  The man tried to find out what Peter had.  As Peter reached out to the man, he accepted Peter’s invitation.


Immediately, the man felt his feet and ankles becoming strong.  And for his first time in his life, he began to walk and jump.


Of course we need money.  We cannot say money is meaningless.  Yet, money would be gone as we use it.  There are so many things that we cannot buy with money.  On the other hand, there is no limit with the name of Jesus Christ.  His name has overwhelming power than money.  Christians pray in the name of Jesus.  God is the one who created earth and heaven, and rules them.  With the faith to this name, we can possess the power that money cannot provide us.


I, myself grew up in a poor family, yet I do not think of myself as an unhappy person.  Among the same age as I am, there are many people who are wealthier than I am.  But I do not envy them.  I have the treasure worth more than money, the direct call line to God.


Are you happy now?  What is your purpose in your life?  You do not need to admire the life of celebrities.  Just in front of you, there is a shortcut to the blessings.  All you need is to ask, then anytime, the blessings will be given to you.  Through the name of Jesus, there are countless number of people who have already received hope and happiness.  I wish you would also receive this privilege into your hands.
