Beijing Shepherd Tells: Faith in Life is True Faith

Rev. Zhang Bin(Jiameizhidi Church)

"Religion that can be testified in real l life is true faith," shared by Beijing Pastor Zhang Bin recently in a Jiamei worship party.  He enouraged people to do the things on their identity.

Jiamei church is located in the Haidian District of Beijing.

The apostle Paul said in I Corinthian 7:20 , "Every man, wherein hiss status is (may be), still keep this identity." In his preaching, Pastor Zhang reminded the people not to be envious of other people's identity and to see the importance of their own identity. They must trust that this identity is God -given.

"Doing their things on their identity is a big challenge." A person has many identities and God has given him a lot of responsibility. We must seek God and keep the identity that God gave to us.

He also talked about ways to deal with sins and crime. In his view, when people commit sin, it is a normal phenomenon but our face is in Jesus Christ. Man has sinned and cannot enjoy the joy of sin. Through Jesus, man is able to climb up from sin and move forward in life. "By Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, change is the core of life." 

Pastor Zhang believes that the changing of one’s inner life, will also affect one’s external life.

In addition, Ptr. Zhang also talked about the "cross." The power of the "cross", he thought, is to break us as man and sinner and to help us go the way of Jesus. Jesus had said, "I tell you the truth, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth's dead, it is still a grain. Dies, it bears much fruit." (John12:24). This should be our life.

The challenge of the Christian is internal. They must be willing to break their habits of sin and take up the cross to follow Jesus.
