  • Our dear sister grace came to know the Lord Jesus in her teens. I believe those must be some of her happiest moments in life when she found the purpose of her life in Jesus. And for those of us who knew her, her family members, her brethren from church, friends from her life, we would agree that she has a passion for life, a passion for her Savior.
  • In 2000, Grace began her battle with cancer for 10 years. I am sure that in those years, she would have thought of what are the important things she wanted in her life, what she wanted to do, which lives she wanted to step into. I am also sure that she had thought of death, but moreso, I know she has thought of eternity and eternal life beyond the grave. Her faith in her Savior and His promises has not wavered. Even till the end, she holds fast to the promises of the Word of God. During the last few weeks before she was admitted, she was resting downstairs here on the Sofa and yesterday when I was here helping to cleanup, I was touched to see that on the living room table, right on top is her bible, which is her comfort, her strength. Let’s look at a few promises from the bible, promises that our sister has cling too.
  • Jesus closes His prayer with a great, heartfelt expression of His desire that we may be with Him in glory, that all who believe in His name, from the beginning of Pentecost until the end of time, may be with Him in His glory. What a magnificent basis for our hope of heaven! And yet heaven is heaven only because we will be with Christ. This is the hope of every believer, that one day we will be with Him. As Paul said, We ... would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8-9). And in many places Scripture brings that hope before us. The joy of the Christian is that in heaven we behold the glory of Jesus, the face of Jesus, the manifestation of all the glory that is in Him.Rom 8:38 因 为 我 深 信 无 论 是 生,都 不 能 叫 我 们 与 神 的 爱 隔 绝 。 这 爱 是 在 我 们 的 主 基 督 里 的 。
  • Grace is always hardworking, we see even till now the renovations are still ongoing…For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 因为他等待那座有根基的城,就是 神所设计所建造的。Here indeed we groan, and long to put on our heavenly dwelling, so that by putting it on we may not be found naked. For while we are still in this tent, we sigh with anxiety; not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. (2 Corinthians 5:1-4 RSV)
  • Like a seed sown in summer, it lies dormant in the winter but it does not perish, when spring comes, the plant comes alive.然 而 靠 着 我 们 的 主 , 在 这 一 切 的 事 上 , 已 经 得 胜 有 馀 了 。
  • They ever were and always will be dear to Him. His saints! They were the ones on whom His love was set before the earth was formed or the heavens made. These are they for whose sakes He left His Home on high and whom He bought with His precious blood, cheerfully laying down His life for them. These are they whose names are borne on our great High Priest’s breast and engraven on the palms of His hands. They are His Father’s love-gift to Him, His children, members of His body; therefore, everything that concerns them is precious in His sight. The Lord loves His people so intensely that the very hairs of their heads are numbered: the angels are sent forth to minister unto them; and because their persons are precious unto the Lord so also are their deaths.

  • In Loving Memory of Grace Wong

    1. 1. 黄君平<br /> Grace Wong<br />02 Aug 1975 – 15 Dec 2010<br />安息主怀<br />
    2. 2. May 2010 – 十年的病历路程<br />
    3. 3. 主耶稣的心愿<br />耶稣说: “你们心里不要难过,你们应当信神,也应当信我。   在我父的家里,有许多住的地方…我若去为你们预备地方,就必再来接你们到我那里去,好使我在哪里,你们也在哪里。<br />“父啊,我在哪里,愿你赐给我的人也和我同在哪里,让他们看见你赐给我的荣耀,因为在创立世界以前,你已经爱我了。”约14:1-3,17:24<br /> “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms…And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.<br />“Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. John 14:1-3, 7:24<br />
    4. 4. 得享安息<br />我听见从天上有声音说:你要写下来!从今以后,那在主里死去的人有福了!圣灵说:是的,他们脱离自己的劳苦,得享安息了,他们的作为也随着他们。启14:13<br />我们若信耶稣死了, 又复活了, 照样, 也应该相信那些靠着耶稣已经睡了的人, 神必定把他们和耶稣一同带来。帖前 4:14<br />Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.”  “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.” Rev 14:13<br />For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 1 Thess 4:14<br />
    5. 5. 春天来临着<br />我现在把一个奥秘告诉你们:我们不是都要睡觉,而是在一刹那,眨眼之间,就是号角最后一次吹响的时候,我们都要改变;因为号角要吹响,死人要复活,成为不朽坏的,我们也要改变。这必朽坏的必须穿上不朽坏的, <br />这必死的必须穿上不死的;林前15:51-53<br />Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 1 Cor 15:52-53<br />
    6. 6. 完美的荣耀<br />太阳有太阳的荣光,月亮有月亮的荣光, 星星有星星的荣光,而且每一颗星的荣光 也都不同。死人复活也是这样。所种的是 必朽坏的,复活的是不朽坏的;所种的是 卑贱的,复活的是荣耀的;所种的是软弱的,复活的是有能力的 。 林前 15:41-44<br />The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor.  So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.<br />1 Cor 15:41-44<br />
    7. 7. 我知道我是宝贵的!我们在永恒里再见! <br />在耶和华的眼中看来,圣民的死极为宝贵。<br />Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful servants.<br />所以有话说:睡了的人哪,醒过来, 从死人中起来吧!基督必要照亮你。弗5:14<br />This is why it is said:    “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Eph 5:14<br />

    14. 14. Benediction<br />As Christians, it is our conviction that our loved ones move on into the nearer presence of God, where they shall hunger no more, either thirst any more; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat.  For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water; and God himself will wipe away every tear from their eyes.Having this faith, we now commend into God's keeping our sister, Grace Wong, here departed.  We commit her mortal remains to the elements from which they first arose: earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust, trusting in Gods great mercy by which we have been born anew to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.God's peace is hers. God's peace will be ours.Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen<br />
