Remembering Jesus (What we talked about Last Week)
On Friday we talked about “Living Witnesses”. As Asian Americans we are experts as Code Switching. We change how we behave, speak, even dress, to fit into different contexts. While for many of us, this may come from a place of hurt, and longing to fit in, Christ can use this skill for good. We see that the Apostle Paul, and other Christians of the past such as Hudson Taylor, became like those around them, culturally, to gain favor and opportunity to share the Gospel. Since their identity was so firmly rooted in Christ, they could live like they were Jewish under the Mosaic Law, gentile, or Chinese, even though they were not these things. So too can we live as witnesses for Christ, and use our ability to code switch, that Christ might be shown through our actions and words to those who may not know him.

What you can pray for:
Your church – That we would serve each other, even while practicing “social distancing” and in Quarantine. Pray for health and strength for church members. Pray that we would be about the business of making disciples of Jesus Christ!
Your Youth Group – for students to grow in love and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, through the work of the Holy Spirit.
Your Friends – for their lives to be grounded in, centered on, rooted in Christ. And pray for your non-Christian friends to know Jesus.
Yourself – and your eternal (and immediate) needs, like being faithful in evangelism or knowing how to spend your time during the pandemic, or knowing how to be part of the solution to racism rather than being part of the problem.
