内側をおおきく Bigger on the inside!

We had special guests at Lifehouse Osaka International Church!!! 

オーストラリアのシャイアライブチャーチから、ティモシー牧師がきてくれたよ☆ 彼は最高のユース牧師です。
We had Pastor Timothy Biasetto from Shire Live church in Australia. He is an awesome youth pastor.

また、彼のめっちゃ美しい奥さんのマラーニもきてくれました^^ 2人は結婚6ヶ月の新婚さん。最高のカップル。
And his beautiful wife, Malani came along too! They have been married for 6 months now. Still newly weds! Awesome couple.

Pastor Tim preached for both 12:00 and 14:00 service. So many people received Jesus or came back to God after hearing his messages! His message really moved people 🙂

What really spoke to me through his 12:00 message was the verse from Mark.




Mark 11:12-14, 20-21 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. 13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. 14 Then he said to the tree, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard him say it. 20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!”

fig tree

2つの種類のいちじくの木があった。 一つは外見はまだ葉っぱしかない、イチジクの木。でもしっかり根がはってる。 次の季節にむけて準備をしているイチジクの木。



There were 2 kinds of fig tree. One kind had leaves only and nothing else. But it’s strong in the inside and the root is growing deep. It’s preparing for the next season.

The other kind looked good on the outside, but it was not developing inside. The root was shallow.

Jesus cursed the one that only looked good on the surface but had no content inside.

神様はあなたの内側を重視してる。 どんなに外側がよくても、ちゃんと根がはっていないと、もたない。

Let’s not become a Christian that cares about how you look on the outside.

God sees your inner part.  That’s really important for him. No matter how good you look on the outside, if your root is shallow, you are not going to last.

チャレンジの中にいる時、喜ぼう。 感謝の気持ちを持とう。

だって、神様にもっと深く根をおろすことが強制されるから。 もっと神様との関係が深くなる。

そして、神様に深く根を下ろした時、強められる。 成長できる!! これってすばらしいこと。

And if you are facing challenges right now, REJOICE!  Let’s keep a thankful heart.

Because when we are facing challenges we are forced to dig deeper to God. We get to develop a deeper relationship with God.

And when we go deeper with God, we get strengthened! We can grow!!! This is truly amazing.

ティモシーのメッセージを聞きながら、去年のヒルソングカンファレンスのジョン マクスウェルのメッセージで受け取ったことを思い出した。




もっと外側よりも内側(心)を強くしていかないといけない。 外側で起きていることが内側を影響しないように。


そして、外側で起きることに揺るがされないこと。 悪魔は私たちを陥れようとしている。特に外側を攻撃する。


As I was listening to Tim’s message, I was reminded about the message preached by John Maxwell at Hillsong Conference last year.

John Maxwell said, “Leader is an inside job!”

When you are bigger on the outside than the inside, you are eventually going to fall apart.

It’s not what you see on the outside, it is about what you know on the inside.

Basically, we have to be thinking bigger than the people we’re leading, and being confident of the things in our hearts.

You need to be bigger on the inside than on the outside so that the things happening on the outside don’t change the inside.

We need to not be shaken by the things that will come at us, since the devil is looking for ways to bring us down, and it’ll start on the outside.

If we’re bigger on the inside, whatever happens on the outside it won’t change what’s on the inside!!


強い信仰を持っている若者。 大きなビジョンを持っている若者。 神様のために妥協をしない強い意志をもったブレない若者。

そのために、まず私自身もリーダーとして、もっともっと内側を強めていきたい^^ もっと大きなハートが与えられるようにずっと祈り続けてるよ☆  もっとキャパを広げてほしい。


We want to see a church that is packed with young people who are not only shining on the outside, but also strong inside and are bigger on the inside.

Young people with strong faith. Young people with big vision. Young people who won’t compromise to live for God! They won’t be swayed.

I, myself want to strengthen my inside more and more.  I am constantly praying to God to give me a bigger heart. To expand my capacity.

Because I want to bear lots of fruit in the next season!
