Shepherd’s Corner – March 31, 2019

Spring has arrived. This past winter was colder and wetter than usual. Though it may be unfamiliar to some, when the winter is cold and wet, it leads to a spring that’s in full bloom! This is an important thing to witness in order to be reminded of the cycle of life. Not everything and not every time in life is rosy…

It is a joy to be back with a new addition to our family. Thank you for all your prayers! Today won’t be the last time I’ll be preaching on spiritual adoption, but it’s particularly special because of our adoption now being finalized. I hope that you will join me in reflecting upon our own adoption through Christ by God the Father. It was an unconditional adoption; God didn’t wait for us to love him first, or to tidy ourselves up, or be remorseful for our sins first. Instead, Romans 5:8 tells us that while were still sinners, God demonstrated his love for us and Christ died for us. This is an incredible Gospel truth, and may our wonder and gratitude of this adoption never cease! And that adoption is sealed through the Holy Spirit. We are now family of God, through His grace! How marvelous is your Gospel salvation oh Lord. May we be a congregation that never forgets this and lives everyday in response to this love and grace. in Him, Daevid Yoon

The brokenness of people is one that is made very apparent week after week. Whether it’s another relationship scandal, a domestic violence case, or just about anything else you see on the news, it’s a reminder that we still live in a broken and sinful world. But, the encouraging thing about the gospel is this: that we have hope despite all that…

Heading back to Korea this week to go and take custody of our daughter in Korea. Words cannot express our joy and anxiousness. As we’ve explained this journey to you, we thank you for your prayers and ask that you will continue to pray for us. There are still legal and logistical matters that can come up, so we pray for a…

As Pastor Daevid is in Korea for his adoption process, the conversation with him got me thinking about couple things; how costly it is to adopt a child financially, how much time and patience it requires. Then got me thinking about ourselves, that we as believers of Jesus Christ are all adopted children of God. In order for us to be adopted…

Today is Super Bowl LIII (or 53 for us modern folk). Did you know that means this is Tom Brady’s 9th time playing in the Super Bowl? He has appeared in more Super Bowls than any NFL team today (except his own team the Patriots). Those are some impressive numbers. But I bet after the 5th or 7th time it’s almost like…

As we close out the first month of 2019, I hope and pray that we are still mindful of the many blessings that we have received from God. Let’s not make that practice an “end of the year” thing, but an “all the time” thing. Because when we regularly remind ourselves of God’s provisions and faithfulness in our lives, then we are…

Thank you for your prayers during our Thailand trip! By God’s grace we returned safely and were very blessed during our time there. It was great to see how God is using His people to share the love of Christ in Phetchabun and Bangkok! We were able to visit with Todd and Karen Indehar in Bangkok and listen to their story of…
