After our co-workers Dan and Andrew had taught chronologically from Genesis to the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ in January 2012, Janet approached co-worker Rachel and Robyn separately and announced to them, “I have no sin…Jesus didn’t have any sin, but He took my sin and died on the cross like the sheep that took Isaac’s place. His blood was spilled out to pay for my sin. Now I don’t have any sin! Friend, I need to go home and think about this.”
Since her declaration in January, Janet has continued to come and hear the teaching of God’s Word in the Yu Wei language though some have been drawn away by other things and others have been told by some of the religious leaders not to continue coming as the message we are teaching counters their current church laws. There are many others who have been taught how to become a part of God’s family but are torn between believing in the true Gospel of salvation by grace through faith or their hybrid gospel of animism syncretized with works-based salvation. Unfortunately, many have chosen the later rather than the former.
Pray for the few faithful like Janet, that they will continue to grow stronger in their faith.
