Tell of God’s Grace and Spread His Salvation

By Rev Sally Yung

February 19, 2023

“…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

Let me share with you seven thanksgiving testimonies of God answering prayers from a meeting of Cancer Care Prayer Group. In sickness and in difficulty, God indeed gives grace. He saves and heals our body, mind, social well-being and soul.

 

  1. My family and I are grateful for the care, support and prayer from our fellowship and the Cancer Care Prayer Group. I could feel the Lord’s love. Dad came to faith and was baptized when he had cancer. God brought love into my family. Dad turned from being irritable, beating and scolding family members to knowing how to cherish those around him. Thank the Lord!
  2. Twenty years ago, God sent many people to pray for my treatment and recovery. Thank our Heavenly Father for His healing and blessing. May God use me to walk with those in need and to pray for them, that their lives will be blessed by God.
  3. During her cancer days, Mom confessed her sin of having worshiped false gods (天道五教) for tens of years. She repented, confessed her faith in the Lord Jesus alone and was baptized. That was the happiest and most thankful day in my life! Later, Mom said to my uncle, “It’s great to believe in Jesus! Why don’t you do so, too?” I immediately shared the gospel with my uncle and, thanks be to our Heavenly Father, he also gave his life to Christ.
  4. My sister was suffering from stage 3 colon cancer. She had 40 tumors. Thank God for watching over her that her surgery, chemotherapy and targeted therapy were smoothly completed and that she had recovered. Above all, I am most grateful that my sister came to faith in the true God and have peace in Him. She completed the nurture class and baptismal class. After her baptism, she gladly shared testimonies and spread the gospel!
  5. I have fully recovered from cancer. Thank the LORD for His grace, I can be born again. The new me wins over my old self before I came to Christ. My family and relatives can also see that God has renewed and transformed me, and my relationship with them has greatly improved. I now have opportunities to serve God. May God continue to grow my spiritual life. May more people see the testimony of my life and receive the gospel and salvation soon.
  6. God healed my illness and through that my family came to Christ. I am truly grateful! My parents gave their lives to Christ and were baptized. God also moved my aunt through Mom’s funeral service. After attending the nurture class in NPAC, she came to faith and was baptized.
  7. Fifteen years ago, I was in stage 4 cancer. Thanks for the prayers of the NPAC family and thank the Lord Jesus for saving and healing me. I then retired early and enjoyed the bonus life with my wife, attending our church’s prayer meetings, Sunday School, patient visitations and testifying for God in various places. I saw quite a lot of people come to faith. There are both gains and losses in having cancer. But in all of this, my greatest blessing has been coming to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. My wife, my family and many friends and relatives have come to Christ because of this. Thanks be to God!

 

Leading people to Christ is of utmost importance! It is all because of God’s forgiveness of our sins that we can be reconciled to Him, become His children, and savor His love and a missional life. We wait for the Lord’s return when we will be resurrected and have eternal life and a new heaven and earth, where we will be with our brothers and sisters and God who loves us the most forever. What a blessing!

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” (Psalm 9:1)
