"Open your eyes and look at the fields! They
are ripe for harvest." ~John 4:35
In 1979, we began a journey with the Lord. We rejoice and sing
"How great are thy works, Lord!" The harvest is indeed
ready with today's communication technology; mission opportunities
are at our doorstep as well as overseas. The Lord has already set
the stage for worldwide broadcasting through the Internet. The potential
of this new medium will surpass all other media. For instance, it
has taken radio and television several decades to build the size
of audience that the Internet has garnered in just the last few
years. Great and mighty works of the Lord will be seen in the new
millennium. At CGBC, we are asking the Lord for wisdom as we work
on the cutting edge of high-tech ministry. After all, technologies
are a means to an end. Then, what is our end?
"Jesus Christ did not say, "Go and save
Souls." The salvation of souls is the supernatural work of
God. But, He said, "go and make disciples of all nations"
Yet you cannot make disciples unless you are a disciple yourself.
When the disciples returned from their first mission, they were
filled with joy because even the demons were subject to them. But
Jesus said, in effect, "Don't rejoice in successful service,
the great secret of joy is that you have the right relationship
with Me."~ see Luke 10:17-21~ The missionary 's great essential
is remaining true to the call of God, and realizing that this one
and only purpose is to disciple men and women to Jesus. Our inspiration
is Jesus Himself." ~My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers~
We thank God for using imperfect people to participate
in His perfect plan for humanity. He also uses ordinary people to
fulfill an extraordinary mission. The great challenge for us is
how to balance using the technology and trusting the divine power
to accomplish any task. Technology, whether television or the Internet,
is neutral as a medium. It is the users, people and our values that
make the difference. All kinds of people with different gifts are
important, yet not indispensable. The great factor is not our usefulness
and contribution. Our objective is to be true to Jesus and to carry
out His plan and fulfill the creative and redemptive mandates.
Since late 1995, we have learnt to build the Internet computer
system and use it to broadcast our programs. We have involved students
to work as a team in our urban mission setting. The X generation
is full of vitality and creativity, as well as high-tech savvy.
These young people are gifts from God. They are precious to the
churches and mission fields. When we grew up in the sixties as students,
the Lord used many faithful servants to be our role models. Now
in turn, we should mentor our young people. They need to see what
it means to be a living sacrifice. ~Roman12~ God has blessed us
the baby boomers, and we have raised a new generation of well-trained
and highly educated specialists in almost every field. To provide
training for them in the communication and broadcasting field is my
call for the new millennium.
We thank God for fax, e-mail, Intranet, and Internet.
We can work together in ways we never imagined to be possible before.
If God's people are mindful of the Father's business, we can share
the Good News to the ends of the earth in no time. It is the command
of Jesus that we "go and make disciples". The Lord is
still looking for people to feed the hungry very much the same as
2000 years ago when the disciples and the little boy brought the
fish and the loaves to Him.
By His grace, we want to share resources with anyone
around the world. It is still our goal to continue production and
serve as a mission resource center.
