Townsville bible seminar news
From June 17th to 20th, the bible seminar started with the minister Jae-Hyun Bae from Melbourne church in Townsville, Australia.
4 days before the seminar, church members had prayer meetings every night preparing the seminar with their hearts. Also, short term missionaries practiced dance and assisted preparing of the seminar. It was physically hard for the short-term missionaries who started propagation in the morning, but they were always filled with joy and spent time to share their happiness. When we were preparing for the seminar, we heard that people who were invited in person cannot attend because of their personal reasons. We wondered ‘Are they going to come to the seminar?’ as the time for the seminar was coming. However, we waited with the faith in God who works only for Jesus, regardless of our actions.
Lecturer missionary Jaehyun Bae talked about Genesis 6:1~8 to tell people are bodily wicked. He told that everything of people is evil by especially emphasizing Genesis 6:5. There are two types of people; one type is people who can do things by themselves so they follow their own thoughts and another type is people who know they are wicked so they only follow God and believe him. God places people under indebtedness when people realized their evilness and become weak people before the Lord. Since all things about us are evil and wrong, there is no hope, so God sent Jesus to us. No matter what our plans and thoughts are, when we give up those and only follow God, then, he told that, we can receive the benefit.
