あるものを与えよう! Let’s give what we DO have!

Today was another powerful day from the morning to the end!

Pastor Rod, our senior Pastor from Tokyo came to Osaka to preach for us…!

Luke and I are so blessed that we can lead Jesus Lifehouse Osaka under Pastor Rod and Viv’s amazing leadership!

Because Pastor Rod and Viv came to Japan with a vision to build a church for the next generation, we are all here! We are super thankful!!!

It’s amazing what Pastor Rod brings, the security of the father.  We feel so secure when he speaks!

In the 14:00 message, he shared from Acts 3.

When the man who was lame from birth asked for money from Peter and John, they said

「金銀は私にはない。しかし、私にあるものをあげよう。イエス キリストの名によって歩きなさい。」
“Silver or gold I don’t have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ, walk.”

They took the man’s hand, helped him up and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. The man jumped to his feet and began to walk!

Just like this story we can do the same thing to the people around us.

Maybe you don’t have everything. But let’s be someone who has something to give!

When Pastor Rod and the team came to Japan 10 years ago they did not have much money.

でも、自分たちにはもっているものがあった。 それがイエス!!!  神様の最高の知らせ。
But they had something to give. That was Jesus!!!   God’s great news for people! 

The power of Jesus can forgive you, heal your body, heal your mind, give you great relationships, you can live a great life!!! 

Let’s look intently at people with a heart to bless.

Know the power of God in your life!!

And communicate your desire to help though Jesus’ power.

Did you know that we can still pray for people even when we are not perfect. 

You don’t need to wait until you are perfect to pray for people.

You can pray for people to get healed even if you are not healed yet.

Even if you are financially challenged, you can pray for peoples’ blessings!

God can life people up through you!!!  

What is happening in lifehouse is…

Young people are praying about their fathers, mothers, grandparents and sharing about Jesus!!!

And we are seeing more family members coming to church and receive Jesus!!!

Don’t focus on what you don’t have, let’s give what you DO have!  

Even when we don’t have it all, when we give what we have, God’s power really works through us!!!

だから、みんな持っているもの伝えていこう! イエスのこと、伝えていこう! 言葉でもっと伝えていこう。周りの人のために祈っていこう!! 大胆になろう。
So let’s share what we have! Let’s share about Jesus more and more!!! We have to have our mouths open!  Let’s pray for the people around us!  Let’s be bold!

Because what we DO have is AMAZING!!!

起きて、光を放とう! 神様の光を輝かせよう!
Arise and Shine!! Let’s shine God’s love!!!


(Isaiah 60:1-3) “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
