Having completed their studies this month, two of our members have returned back to their home countries. We are sad to think that we will not be able to meet them around here each day but we are thankful to be connected together with them by our loving Jesus Christ.
We are always with you and pray for you from now on.

The time is moving. We feel the coming of the fall.
 The blessing of God is fresh every morning. So, let’s give thanks God many good memories of summer and expect new blessing.

Bible:Acts2:37-43
 1. Save yourselves from the corrupt generation.
 Paul told to repent people 2000 years ago. Society has changed but we are still living in the wicked world.
2. There are sins within us.
 Recognize we are all powerless and foolish existence before God, and ask God to cleanse our sins. Always ask God in our prayer “What shall we do to be saved?”
3. Repent our sins from our heart and believe the gospel of God. And receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. We can get real peace and happiness in our life.

The long rainy season was over and the summer has come! God prepares special blessing for your summer.

Bible Mark 9:14-29
Today we want to learn God’s teaching “can or can’t” from the story “”the healing of a boy with an evil spirit”.

1. The disciples and people couldn’t heal the boy.
They were just talking without the result of healing.
Nowadays people rely on someone for the solution of troubles. But there is a limit of human power.

2. Even the father couldn’t do anything for his son.
Sometimes people think love is most important. This father has deep love for his son but he couldn’t deliver his son from the control of demons.

3. Only Jesus can heal.   And to our thanks, we can also work with God.  He says “Everything is possible for him who believes.”  One person can make a difference!
God has chosen you with special purpose!

Bible Joshua 6:1-7


 1. The declaration of the victory in advance of the war.
 In our actual life we face the difficulties. But fight with them believing the victory declared by God.


2. The preparation in faith for the war.
 Don’t rely on our own thinking or feeling. Instead, when we obey God, we can truly prepare for the war.


3. The consciousness toward God who is with us.
 The number “7” means the presence of God. God always works with us and helps us. So face our difficulties with God and get the victory in our hands.

Last night Pastor Mandai was preparing today’s message and thinking what is the most encouraging words.  Then the nest scripture came to his heart from God.

Bible Joshua1:1-9
1. We have visions and dreams from our God.(1:2-4)
God’s calling and gifts for you will never change.


2. God is always with us. He lives in our walk.(1:5-6)
God will never leave us nor forsake us!  What a great blessing it is!  So let’s be strong and courageous whatever you do.

3. God tells us what we should do clearly. (1:7-8)
Let’s make it into practice one by one.

Spring has come!!  Yesterday the weather broadcast reported the first cherry blossoms in Kagoshima prefecture.   The nature enjoys new season.  Let’s enjoy, we, too.

Bible: Exodus 3:1-12

When Moses was 80 years old, he was nobody, just only a shepherd.   He must have thought his life was over.   But God has the plan for him.

1. You have personal relationship with God.
God called to Moses.  God comes to our heart face to face. Your life must be unique one by God.  When you are challenging, you are not alone.   God is always with you.

2. God knows your reality.
God saw and heard the sufferings of Moses.  God is a creator, who can refresh and renew your life.

3. God provides you mission and aim on your life.
Some members will leave Japan and go home this spring.   But wherever you go, God will encourage and help you to accomplish your own mission.  Let’s do our best to accomplish the plan God has prepared for our life.

( Bible: Acts 9:1-6 )

It’s the story of Saul’s Conversion.

He persecuted the Christian first, but after he was struck the light of God he was conversed.



( Points )

Like Saul, let’s ask Jesus simply “Who are you?”   Then He will tell you your own identity and aim of your life.  Let’s live your life guided by God, not by your own thinking.

When you all came to Japan, there must be God’s guidance. 

And now, some of the members of Praise Fellowship are leaving Japan this spring.   Please follow him and do your own aim in your country, too.   Then God will tell you what you are truly.

( Information )

We had a farewell party at church.

Two of our members return to their hometown this spring.

English Sunday service in Matsuyama 2015/1/25



" The Thankfulness that God Desires "

Bible  1 Thessalonians 5:18 Be joyful always ; pray continually;give thanks in all circumstances,
 
The theme for this year is “Always be thankful!” Living a life of thankfulness to God leads to grace and blessings. Shouldn’t we always experience the kind of blessings brought on by thankfulness in our every day, actual lives?


Philippians4: 6,7  “ Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with
thanksgiving, present your requests to God “ 

God in every situation (whether good or bad) wants us have a thankful attitude. If we pray with thanksgiving, God will protect us. No matter what the situation, let us always be thankful throughout this year.

What is the sort of thankfulness that God desires, which we should be mindful everyday?

@  This thankfulness has a clear direction; it is important that we lift our eyes to God and give thanks TO Him.

Ephesians 5:20  “always giving thanks to God the Father for everything”   
Psalm 118:21  “I will give you thanks ”

What the Bible says about thankfulness is at all times direct your thankfulness toward God. God, to you, to Christ, we give thanks. 

We should not shut up our feelings in our hearts. Rather our thankfulness should be able to reach God. Proper faith comes from the heart directed toward God and has a relationship with God. This is why it is important that thankfulness also be directed toward God.

A   Our thanksgiving should be accompanied by full, expressive joy.

Colossians 1:12  “and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[a] to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.”
Colossians 3:16  Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.
Psalm 28: My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.

When we receive grace from God, when we are thankful, there is always joy.
The need to express joy, sing and dance come with it. It’s good to express and show your heart along with your faith. Thankfulness must be expressed. 
 
B Let us remember that proper action must always accompany our thanksgiving. What kind of action? This is very clear.
 
Psalm 50:14  “ Sacrifice thank offerings to God “
Psalm 107:22  “ Let them sacrifice thank offerings “
2 Chronicles 29:31  “ Come and bring sacrifices and thank offerings to the temple of the LORD “.
 
In order to express their thankfulness, the people of the period in the Old Testament gave a physical offering. In this, they even gave the lives of animals (as sacrifices) and showed how their thanksgiving was deep and genuine, with a true heart. In today’s society, we tend to offer superficial words and lip service as thanksgiving. To Christ, who loves us so much He gave His life for us, let’s give something worthy of being called a thank offering (with specific actions, or devotion that you give from yourself).
