This may call to mind for most people the words of God from Genesis: “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness.” Given that God says let “Us” make man in “Our” image, then “Us” indicates two or more; since He stated “Us,” then there is not just one God.

Whenever reading these lines of Scripture: “How think you? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, does he not leave the ninety and nine, and goes into the mountains, and seeks that which is gone astray? And if so be that he find it, truly I say to you, he rejoices more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish” (Mat 18:12-14), I feel very moved in my heart. From these verses, I understood that God doesn’t want to have any of us be tempted by Satan and thus keep far from Him, indulge in the pursuit of money, fame and gain, covet worldly things and carnal pleasure, and no longer have any place for God in our hearts. Instead, He hopes that we can worship Him and live under His blessings and promise. For thousands of years, God has always been looking for those who worship Him and belong to Him, and at the same time redeeming those who believe in Him but are distant from Him. This is God’s eager will. God compared Himself to the shepherd, every true believer in Him the sheep, through which He told us that He won’t leave anyone as long as they are the sheep that belong to Him. In the past, I only had these understandings of this parable. Until one day when I saw the word of God on a gospel website I understood the profound meaning within it and gained a greater knowledge of God’s desire to save mankind.
“Hey, Sister Fang, a pastor from outside the town is here to preach to us, are you coming to hear it?”
“Of course I’m coming. I always go when pastors come to preach.”
In my heart, pastors and elders had always been the people I respected and worshiped most, because in the Bible it says, “Take heed therefore to yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to feed the church of God” (Acts 20:28). Pastors and elders are all established by God, obedience to the pastors and elders is obedience to God, and not obeying the pastors and elders is resistance to God, so in all things we should listen to and obey them. In addition to that, the pastors and elders have believed in God for a long time, understood much of the Bible, and had the most solid foundation, so when the Lord comes, He will first enlighten Himself to them. So, by following the pastors and elders, we would certainly be able to Continue reading “Discerning Modern-Day Pharisees, I Followed God’s Footsteps”. Therefore, whenever I heard that a pastor had come to deliver a sermon, I would always go to listen.
