The Fire – June 2, 2017

Posted by on Jul 6, 2017 in Sermon |

When I was in tenth grade, I broke my right ankle for the first time trying to dunk the ball. While in the air, I was undercut, fell, on my right toe, with all my weight. At the time I was just under five foot tall but the fall would tear all the ligaments on the outside of my ankle, fracturing the inside of my ankle. After six months of being in a cast, I was finally able to take it off. I remember the day. I was excited, especially to scratch my shin, calf, ankle, and foot for the first time in months. Next I was excited to get back on the court, because I knew that all four foot, eleven inches of me was destined for the NBA one day. As the doctor checked out my ankle and foot, he was happy with how it healed but still believed that I would eventually require surgery to stabilize it. He showed me a few rehabilitation exercises to start my progress of recovery and strengthening the ankle. He scheduled me with a rehab clinic, which I never went to, to help me fully recover and to help determine if I needed surgery. I remember the list of “do nots” he gave me… do not play basketball, do not run, do not jump, do not jog, so not practice kung-fu, do not… At 15 years old, I heard him speak but didn’t hear what he said. I just wanted to get home and test out my newly healed ankle. At the time, I lived in Alief, Houston. As we pulled up to our unit, I noticed thick line of dark smoke snaking up to the sky. I pointed and said, “Mom, pull around the corner, I think there’s a fire!” My mother answered in Chinese, “No, you need to go inside and rest.” I replied, “Mom, you have to pull around, someone may need help!” My mother dropped her head, and pulled the car around. As we turned the corner, I surveyed the scene, as I was taught in emergency training in middle school, just a few short years ago. When we arrived at the scene, I saw a crowd of people standing around and watching, two men, a Hispanic and Black guy, standing by a window where the smoke was originating from, they were attempting to break more glass. My heart raced as I turned to my mother and was surprised that she was already looking at me, I said… “I have to go help mom!” With tears in her eyes, she replied, “I know, you were meant to save lives. Go and save lives.” With that, I sprang into action, forgetting what my doctor just instructed me an hour before. I ran up to the two men by the window and asked them if anyone was inside. The...

Here Comes The Bride

Posted by on Aug 11, 2015 in Bible Study, Direction, Encouragement, Sermon, Videos |

By: Jonnathan Zin Truong | Facebook, Twitter I’ve been married since May of 2011. Of all the things I heard and imagined about marriage, I had no idea how much being married would teach me about a part of my identity and an aspect of my relationship with Christ which I lacked – being a bride. While speaking to God about this subject, He revealed to me why His bride is so special to Him, the Bridegroom. It’s because a bride only becomes a bride after she receives the Grooms proposal, making a covenant with Him at the alter. Simply stated, it’s a choice which is made through our free will and His free will. God chose us with a proposal unlike no other, with the full laying down of His life. We in turn are given us the honour of choosing to become His bride. I can speak for most men when I say, none of us grew up day dreaming about walking down the aisle in a Vera Wang wedding dress, center of attention and locking eyes with our Groom to be. Don’t get me wrong, most men desire to have a bride but the idea of becoming a bride is completely foreign to any man. How many women here can honestly say that they dreamt about their wedding day, becoming a bride, walking down the aisle, gaze locked on the eyes of the man of your dreams? Some of you single women, can close your eye and feel your heart race with excitement. By the end of tonight, my sincere heart’s desire is to lift off the vail on what it is to be a Bride of Christ and how if men are able to grasp and fully receive the beautiful proposal of our Bridegroom, Jesus Christ, it would completely change church, life, relationships and possibly propel the Christian’s walk to the next level. But first, before learning to become a bride, we need to understand the Grooms’ heart and the Father of the bride’s joy. Ephesians 5:25-27 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her (Father of the bride) to himself (the Groom) as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. (NIV) If I ask, how many men here would be willing lay your life down for their bride? Since being married, the laying down of one’s life has taken on a deeper revelation. Obviously, if called upon I would physically die for her to live. What I have learned is that allowing what the God’s definition is for a man to die, allows the identity that God has called the bride to become – to come to life. Just as...
