Dreaming for Joseph 与约瑟一同做梦

“Here comes that dreamer!” they said to each other. (Genesis 37:19)

Are you a dreamer? Joseph was! And so are we. We dream of impacting this city with the good news of Jesus, and bringing transformation to the next generation. We dream of thousands of lives, young and old being drawn to the power of God to restore and heal. We dream of hospitals being emptied, the poor being set free from their poverty and the rich making this happen. We dream of engaging the corridors of power and bringing change to our state and nation. We dream of living in a nation where we are not judged by the origins of our ethnicity nor the creed of our religious beliefs, where every race has equal place and voice and where every religion is respected and given room for expression! We dream!

We dare dream big because we have a big God! To all who dare, God will give us more dreams and the grace to interpret the dreams of others. Joseph dreamed big but it was his singular skill in interpreting dreams that ultimately brought his dreams to pass! As we enter the final quarter of the year, let’s dream! Are you ready? We are into final two months of rehearsals for Joseph. We will soon be announcing ticket sales for our exciting year-end musical. This year, we hope to invite students, young adults, people of all races and religions to watch a musical based on a bible story! There won’t be any altar call, but we will be asking each and every one of us to sow the gospel as part of our follow-up conversation with our friends after the show. Possible? Dream!

Dreamers face all kinds of obstacles. Joseph fell prey to his brothers’ evil plot. Then survived slavery and prison. Yet he never let the dream die! In God’s time it became a reality and impacted Pharaoh and the all of Egypt. This year as we prepare for our musical, let’s dream the Joseph dream and believe again! And see lives changed and the city impacted and Skyline growing to touch the next generation!

彼此说:你看!那做梦的来了。(创世记37:19)

您是一位梦想家吗?约瑟是!而我们也是。我们梦想这城市将被耶稣的好消息所影响并转化下一代。我们梦想着无数的生命:无论男女老少,将因着上帝的大能得复原和医治。我们梦想医院将会被清空、贫穷者将从他们的贫困中得释放,并且是由富裕人家去完成这些事。我们梦想能够与国家领袖们进行交谈,为我们的州属和国家带来改变。我们梦想居住在一个不会因我们的种族或宗教信仰而受到批判;每一个种族将拥有平等的地位和发声的机会;每个宗教都被尊重并拥有表达空间的国家!我们一直梦想着!

我们勇于拥有很大的梦想,因为我们有个无限大的上帝!那些有足够勇气的,上帝将给他更多的梦并有足够的恩典来解说其它的梦。约瑟拥有很大的梦想,但正因为他有独特的能力去解梦,他的梦想才会成真。在我们进入今年最后一个季度,让我们一起做梦吧!您准备好了吗?约瑟歌舞剧已进入最后两个月的彩排。很快的,我们将宣布这年度最有看头的歌舞剧的售票详情。今年,我们希望邀请学生、职青、各友族同胞以及不同信仰的朋友来观赏这场以圣经故事为基础的歌舞剧!当中不会有任何呼召,但我恳请我们每一个人在表演结束后,在我们与朋友的谈话中撒入福音的种子。有可能吗?让我们勇敢的去梦想吧!

做梦者往往会面临各种不同的障碍。约瑟掉入他的兄弟们恶劣的套圈。随后他又从当奴隶和被收监的经历中存活下来。尽管如此,他从未忘掉他的梦想!在上帝的时间里,他的梦想成真了,并成功影响了法老和全埃及的人民。今年,当我们准备着我们的歌舞剧,让我们也做与约瑟同样的梦,并重拾我们的信心吧!让我们一起见证生命被改变和这城市被影响,Skyline也将成长并感动下一代!
