We are experience a good weather now.  Autumn is a good season to do anything, to do study, to travel and so on.  We would like to have not only the good weather but also good spirit.  In this autumn, let's activate our faith!

( Today's verce: 2 Kings 5 :1〜14)
This is a story of healing of Naaman.  It is a unique and famous story. 
Let's learn a posture of the faith from this story.  We want to receive a blessing of God.

1.God works through a process of stories.
The blessing of God is not mere story but the beginning of the father one, which leads to a goal.
The goal is prepared by God for us.

2.When we experience a blessing from God, we must not take only a superficial thing.
We don't end it by human idea and way. We must not end it on the way of God's plan.
Follow God's command through a shown method by God.

3.God demands that you follow his command until the last.
Let's carry it out till the time of God comes.  Do not give up and you will receive God's answer.

" The Greatness of the Lord Jesus Christ "

Today's verses: John 6:16-21

Ps Mandai has been teaching us about the deep meaning of a Sign. Although the four gospels talk about the signs, the book of John is distinctive in the sense that it records only 7 signs done by Jesus Christ. Usually the word Sign has always a deeper meaning, and John talks about the works of Jesus Christ as a sign post to the people to believe and to have faith in Jesus.
In today's scriptures, Jesus walked on the water as a 5th sign out of 7 signs recorded in the gospel of John. From this true story we can learn three points:

 
(1) Jesus Christ has His own divine will
Jesus has His own idea and strong will, He does everything by His divine plan and not for the convenience of people.
 On His time He came to this world to die on the cross and to resurrect from the dead to be our Savior and of all mankind in this world. This is beyond our thought and beyond our imagination.
Many people make Jesus too small in their mind. Do not make Jesus too small by the limitation of your mind.
 As we have faith in Christ, we should have real image of Jesus as God.

 
(2) Jesus is the manifestation of the true Creator God
As Jesus Christ is the author of natural laws, He can change anything He wants.
 When God speaks, everything will happen according to His word and change will occur beyond and exceeding the power of nature through the love of Jesus.
 As Jesus Christ is the Creator of the whole universe, He has the power to provide to us everything we need.

 
(3) Jesus has the power of God and is very close to help you
Jesus knew that His disciples were having tough time with their boat and journey on the sea due to the storms.
 And so He walked on the sea to help them.
 Even today Jesus is even coming to you in the midst of your storms or difficult challenges to help you and He is still saying to you " Do not be afraid."
 He is always on your side. You just need to immediately and willingly receive Jesus in the boat of your life for Him to help you in your tough situations.
 So no matter how greatly the boat will be shaken by the strong wind or start sinking, do not worry because He is with you.

 He has the power and authority to stop your challenges immediately. Because of Him, we can move forward and achieve our goals in life. He is The Great and Awesome God.
So do not miniaturise Jesus in whom you believe. He has divine plan, will and power for everything and over everything.
Remember Jesus Christ is still talking to us , "Do not be afraid" He is always near you. Believe in Him today!
