昨日は神様の導きシリーズの第3弾でした☆  ルークがメッセージしてくれたよ〜。自分なりに受けとったことをシェアするね。
Yesterday Luke preached about “God’s guidance” as we have started “God’s guidance series” from last week! I’ll just share what I got from yesterday’s message.

God doesn’t guide us by one method, but he gives us pieces of puzzle.

(Acts 16:6-7) ‘All the pieces had come together. We knew now for sure that God had called us to ….’

そのパズルを組み合わせていくうちに、神様の大きな計画がわかってくる!! それは複雑ではなくてシンプルなもの。わくわくするもの!
And as we put the pieces of puzzle together, we start to understand God’s big plan for our lives! It’s not complicated, it’s simple. And it’s exciting!!!

Yesterday Luke shared about one of the pieces of puzzle, which is another important piece.

The Witness of the Holy Spirit 

When we become Christian, God’s spirit, the Holy Spirit will come inside us and give us a new heart.

He leads you doesn’t become weird you become the great Japanese (or whatever nationality you are!)

パウロも聖霊の導きによって、行く場所を決めていた。 ルークも聖霊の導きがあって、日本にきた。
Paul visited places being led by the Holy Spirit. Luke came to Japan because he was led by the Spirit!

It’s so important for us to listen to the Holy Spirit.

So Luke shared about the Holy Spirit so I will share it here.

1. 私たちは聖霊によって導かれる We are led by the Holy Spirit

(ローマ8:14-16)神の御霊に導かれる人は、だれでも神の子どもです。(15)あなたがたは、人を再び恐怖に陥れるような、奴隷の霊を受けたのではなく、子としてくださる御霊を受けたのです。(ギリシャ語 Huiothesia-養子によって子どもになる)私たちは御霊によって、「アバ、父。」と呼びます。(16)私たちが神の子どもであることは、御霊ご自身が、私たちの霊とともに、あかししてくださいます。

(Romans 8:14-16) because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. (huios)
(15) For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. (Huiothesia – becoming sons by adoption) And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” (16) The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.

If you are a Christian, you are the child of God!! 

You don’t need to live in fear.

Remember this when you are making a decision. If you are making a decision based on fear it’s not good!

Girls, if you are going out with silly boys because you are scared of being single, you shouldn’t continue that relationship! Believe that God will provide you a great Godly man if you grow in God, become secure in Him.

Men, if you are fear of not having job and choose a bad job you are going to regret it!

Recently in our church we have had about 15 people getting amazing jobs!!

神様があなたの人生にいるなら、めっちゃ特権がある! 就活は簡単ではないけど、神様は一緒にいてくれる! 後から最高の仕事についた時に神様がずっとそのプロセスの中にずっといてくれたことがわかる!
If you have God you’ve got an edge!!  Job hunting is not easy but God is with you and you will know later when you get that amazing job how God has been involved all the time!!

Don’t be afraid not being led by God.

Some people are so afraid of missing God’s will.

But the truth is, if you got a good heart and love Jesus, it’s easier to stay in Gods will!

You need to be super rebellious and run away from God to fall out of His plan.

There is a story about this little boy who completed the 1000 puzzle all by himself. 

His father saw the completed puzzle and was shocked! His father asked the boy how did he finish it?

The boy answered, “It was easy! When I flipped the puzzle, there were numbers written on it so I just placed the pieces according to the number!

Our life is like that too!

Flip one at a time as we follow God and things get to make more sense.

That’s why it’s important to be in church!! 

In church, you can learn how to hear from God.  The more you come to church, the more you will hear clearer from God from Monday to Saturday too and start seeing the big picture that God has for you!

2. 私たちは聖霊の平安をもっている We have the Peace of The Holy Spirit

(Philippians 4:7) And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Holy spirit is like our referee. He has the red card and decides what’s in or out!

Negative word – red card!!

Some people have red card out but the Holy Spirit will say, “let it in!”  Receive Encouragement!

It’s not prideful to receive encouragement from God and what He says about you. Actually, it’s more prideful to disagree with God!!!

神様はあなたにこういってる。 あなたは最高!あなたのことを愛してるよ!できるよ!
God is saying to you, “You are awesome! I love you! You can do it”

3. 私たちは聖霊によって教えられる We are taught by the Holy Spirit

(John 14:16-18) And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever—(17) the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. (18) I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

The Holy spirit is going to teach you and remind you

That’s why Journalling is so powerful!  By reading God’s word everyday and writing it down, the Holy Spirit will help you to remember God’s words and apply it to your life!

One of the men in our church recently said this, “As I share God’s word I feel the power of God!”

When the Holy Spirit speaks inside of you there is a power!

Also, the Holy Spirit changes the words that we speak.

If you are full the Holy spirit, it’s hard to have a bad mouth.

Holy Spirit will give you new words!!

What is coming out of your mouth affects your future

The bible says, Life and death is in the power of tongue

If you are a Christian and are saying, “I can’t stop myself from saying bad things!” that’s not true!

You can change because you have the power, the Holy Spirit who can help you. 

Stop speaking death over yourself and speak life to yourself! The Holy Spirit can help you!

Sometimes we have to make a decision before we sense this witness of the Spirit.

(Isaiah 30:21) Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

We will either feel a sense of excitement without reserve or a warning that we need to make a U-turn.

Be like the turtle putting his neck out of the shell. Move out so far as to go forward, but not too far that we can’t pull back our neck if we need to.

5. 実践的なアドバイス:Some Practical Advice:

Because this is the most subjective piece of guidance, there should be open to inspection by good Christian friends, Life Group Leaders, etc.

– 聖書と一致してあることが大事。It must always agree with the Bible.

It must line up with other pieces of the puzzle of guidance.

– 同様にタイミングがチェックされる必要がある。
Timing needs to be checked as well.
