  5. 5. BE RECONCILED TO GOD5 Messages from Our Chairpersons Dear brothers and sisters, What an honor it is for me to welcome you to our 49th annual West Coast Chinese Christian Conference! It’s a joy to see everyone here, together, learning and growing in Christ. We are truly blessed to have you in our midst. Our theme this year is “Be Reconciled to God” and we will take the next 4 days to better understand what that looks like. My hope is that you will take with you into the new year what you have learned and bring forth change in your life and in the lives of those around you. Grab hold of every opportunity that may allow you to get to know more about who God is and in turn, who you are in Him. May you be blessed and leave equipped to serve our God. In His love, Karen Yu 2018 WCCCC Executive Committee Chair Welcome to the 2018 West Coast Chinese Christian Conference (WCCCC)! Greetings in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We are truly honored to have all our speakers, the worship team, translators, and YOU to be part of our conference this year. WCCCC is always a place for me to meet many brothers and sisters from different churches. Seeing what God has done in different places always amazes me, reminding me how much He loves us. I also want to praise the Lord for our wonderful Planning Committee. 2018 has been a very difficult year for myself and for our Planning Committee, but I know that our planning team tried their best to deliver a great conference for all of you. I pray that you can experience the love of God and the truth of God in WCCCC this year. All the glory to our highest King, Jesus Christ! Enjoy your time with God in the coming 4 days!

  8. 8. BE RECONCILED TO GOD8 ABOUT WCCCC OUR HISTORY WCCCC began in 1969 when a group of foreign-born Chinese Christian students gathered for fellowship over the Christmas break. This winter retreat continued up through 1971. In 1972, the winter retreat planning committee placed their efforts in the planning of the North American Congress of Chinese Evangelicals (NACOCE). After the NACOCE meeting, this winter retreat began its transformation into a full-fledged “Winter Conference”. From this beginning, WCCCC has grown into a regional conference ministering to students and young adults, both foreign and American born, from over 100 different groups and churches. OUR VISION WCCCC’s vision is to co-work with West Coast Chinese churches to bring about a grass roots revival. OUR MISSION The primary mission of WCCCC is to plan, organize, and deliver an annual conference for West Coast Chinese Christians that will: • Stimulate conferees to grow in their walk with God; • Equip conferees with the knowledge and skills to fulfill their spiritual calling; • Enrich conferees with a knowledge and understanding of current and past events and movements relevant to Chinese Christians; • Promote conferees’ awareness of their social responsibilities. West Coast Chinese Christian Conference is an evangelical fellowship of Chinese Christians committed to challenging and equipping God’s people to serve on campuses or in the workplace, at the local church or on the mission field. Through a network of resources, training and encouragement, WCCCC aims to serve the West Coast Chinese Christian community.
  9. 9. BE RECONCILED TO GOD9 OUR DISTINCTIVENESS A Community Within Diversity Conferees come from throughout the West Coast representing diverse backgrounds. Through group Bible studies, cabin sharing and other activities, fellowship is fostered to promote a genuine community. A Wealth of Perspectives Conferees are challenged and stimulated through interaction with our numerous speakers on a broad range of topics regarding spiritual growth, Christian service and contemporary issues. An Opportunity for Training Conferees are offered practical workshops to build leadership and evangelism skills, as well as in-conference opportunities to lead Bible study and to practice spiritual discipline. Committee members develop important strategic and tactical skills that provide a valuable foundation for future ministries. OUR BELIEFS Although we come from various church denominations, the leadership of West Coast Chinese Christian Conference holds to the following statements of faith: • We believe that the Bible is uniquely inspired by God, and in its trustworthiness and authority. • We believe in the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His true humanity when He lived among us. • We acknowledge the necessity of Jesus’ substitutionary death on the cross for the redemption of the world. • We hold that salvation is by faith and through God’s grace alone. • We believe in the historic fact of the resurrection. • We acknowledge the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration. • We fully expect the personal return of Jesus Christ in the future.

  19. 19. BE RECONCILED TO GOD19
  20. 20. BE RECONCILED TO GOD20 Jesus and the Rich Young Ruler Matthew 19:16-26 (ESV) Good morning. We thank God for letting us get close to Him by reading His words this early morning. The theme of this year’s con- ference is “Be Reconciled to God.” We hope that today’s morning devotion can help you think about your current relationship with God. Please find a quiet place to read the following bible passage three times and open your heart to hear God’s words. Scripture Passage The Rich Young Man 16 And behold, a man came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” 17 And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments.” 18 He said to him, “Which ones?” And Jesus said, “You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, 19 Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 20 The young man said to him, “All these I have kept. What do I still lack?”21 Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” 22 When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. 23 And Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly, I say to you, only with difficul- ty will a rich person enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.” 25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?” 26 But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” DAY 2 morning devotion 1
  21. 21. BE RECONCILED TO GOD21 Observation The young man asked Jesus what he should do to inherit eternal life, and Jesus answered that he needed to obey the commandments. Ac- cording to passages from other books in the Bible, we know that he was a rich young ruler (Mark 10:22, Luke 18:18). He obeyed the commandments since he was young (Mark 10:20), but he was still uncertain about eternal life. He came to Jesus and hoped to get the assurance of eternal life, but Jesus replied that he needed to sell all he had and give it to the poor in order to have treasure in heaven. Even- tually this young man went away because he had great possessions. Reflection 1. How did this young man interpret eternal life differently from Jesus? Why did Jesus ask him to sell everything and give it to the poor? 2. What aspects of your life are preventing you from obeying Jesus wholeheartedly? Please pray about those obstacles. Prayer Dear Lord Jesus, Thank you for coming down to the earth, living with us for thirty- three years, and allowing many of your deeds to be recorded in the Bible. It is because of God’s word that I’m able to understand what You have done for us and for God’s kingdom. Thank you for guiding me to West Coast Chinese Christian Conference this year to reflect on you and your Word. Please remove anything and everything that prevents me from coming close to You so that I may have a spiritual renewal by the end of the conference. In Your Powerful Name I pray, Amen.
  22. 22. BE RECONCILED TO GOD22 耶穌與少年財主 馬太福音19:16-26 (新標點和合本) 早安,感謝神讓我們在這清早藉着閱讀祂的話語親近祂。今年大會的主 題是「與神和好」,希望今天的靈修能讓你思想到現在你與神的關係。請 找一個清靜的地方安靜下來和讓神打開你的心。細讀以下經文三遍,預 備身心去聆聽神的話語和教導。 靈修經文 當積財寶在天上 16 有一個人來見耶穌,說:「夫子,我該做甚麼善事才能得永生?」17 耶穌對 他說:「你為甚麼以善事問我呢? 只有一位是善的。你若要進入永生,就 當遵守誡命。」18 他說:「甚麼誡命?」耶穌說:「就是不可殺人;不可姦淫;不 可偷盜;不可作假見證; 19 當孝敬父母;又當愛人如己。」20 那少年人說:「 這一切我都遵守了,還缺少甚麼呢?」21 耶穌說:「你若願意作完全人,可 去變賣你所有的,分給窮人,就必有財寶在天上;你還要來跟從我。」22 那 少年人聽見這話,就憂憂愁愁地走了,因為他的產業很多。 貪財的難進天國 23 耶穌對門徒說:「我實在告訴你們,財主進天國是難的。24 我又告訴 你 們,駱駝穿過針的眼,比財主進神的國還容易呢!」25 門徒聽見這話,就希 奇得很,說:「這樣 誰能得救呢?」26 耶穌看着他們,說:「在人這是不能的, 在神凡事都能。」 DAY 2 morning devotion 1
  23. 23. BE RECONCILED TO GOD23 觀察 這少年人問耶穌他該做什麼善事才能得到永生, 而耶穌回答他若要進入永生,就當遵守誡命。由 其他福音書的資料集合對這人的描述,我們得知 他是一個擁有很多財產 (馬可福音10:22)的一個 官員 (路加福音18:18)。他從小便遵守誡命 (馬 可福音10:20),但他依然對永生沒有把握。因此他 來到耶穌面前,希望得着永生的確據。耶穌回答說 若他願意作完全人,便需要變賣家產去賙濟窮人, 這樣必能積聚財寶在天上。這少年人因為產業很 多,聽到後便憂憂愁愁離開了。 默想 1. 這個少年人對得到永生有什麼誤解?為什麼耶穌 要他變賣所有的來分給窮人? 2. 你生命中哪些地方阻止你全心全意地跟隨耶穌? 請為攔阻你的東西祈禱。藉着禱告交托給神。 禱告 主耶穌感謝祢紆尊降貴來到地上與我們同住33年, 讓祢的事蹟都記錄在聖經上。以致我們可以藉着聖 經裏的故事去明白天國的道理。今天我們來到西岸 基督徒聯會也是祢的帶領,求主把攔阻我們到祢面 前的東西挪開,讓我們在日後三天的營會中被祢感 動、拆毀、以至被祢重建。求主幫助,把我帶到祢的 跟前。 奉主名求。阿們。 NOTES

  26. 26. BE RECONCILED TO GOD26 Joshua 7:1-26 “Why have you troubled us? The Lord will trouble you this day.” Learning Objective To reconcile with God, the church must purge any evil within them. Discussion Questions 1. Why wouldn’t the Lord warn the Israelites about the sin of Achan? 2. Why would God let thirty-six innocent people die during the siege because of Achan’s sin? 3. Between damaging His name and allowing sin to be within his people, which one did the Lord choose? Why? 4. Why was it so complicated to search for Achan? Why didn’t the Lord just tell Achan’s name to Joshua instead? 5. Why did Achan’s family have to be stoned for the sin of Achan? Application Questions 1. As shown in the above passage, one’s sin has great impact to the community and would lead to God’s wrath on us. Therefore, what can we do if God does not tell us that people are sinning among our community? 2. How can we avoid suffering from the consequences of the sins committed by others?

  38. 38. BE RECONCILED TO GOD38 Being an Ambassador for Christ 2 Corinthians 5:11-21(ESV) Good morning everyone. Did God talk to you through yesterday’s sermons and/or devotion? Are there any areas you would like to im- prove in your relationship with God? Let’s pay attention to what God wants to speak to us about today. Please find a quiet place, read the following passage three times, and reflect on the ministries God has given you in your communities. Scripture Passage The Ministry of Reconciliation 11 Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others. But what we are is known to God, and I hope it is known also to your conscience. 12 We are not commending ourselves to you again but giving you cause to boast about us, so that you may be able to answer those who boast about outward appearance and not about what is in the heart. 13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, there- fore all have died; 15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. 16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. DAY 3 morning devotion 2
  39. 39. BE RECONCILED TO GOD39 Observation The author reminds the readers to let go of the old things and em- brace the new (2 Corinthians 5:17-20) and to live a God-centered life. We are called to serve God because He has saved us from sins by grace. The author calls us ambassadors for Christ. This term might seem a little vague. Think about the Chinese ambassador to the United States. Although they are in the US, they are protected by the Chinese government and are responsible for protecting Chinese within the US. Similarly, as ambassadors for Christ, we are protected by God and are responsible for protecting God’s people. We are not exempt from the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20). Reflection 1. How are we reconciled to God? In the scripture, it says, “There- fore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” Because Christ died for us, we are counted righteous in God’s eyes. Are there any “old things” in your life that you are holding onto? Pray to God that He will give you strength to overcome them. 2. God’s grace is sufficient. Are you living as an ambassador for Christ? How has God used you to bring reconciliation to others? If not, what is holding you back? 3. Reflect on your life. How has your life been transformed after committing your life to Christ? How would you be able to share this as a life testimony to help others reconcile with God? Prayer Lord, I’m so thankful that your grace never runs out on me. You created my innermost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I can pray to you today because of your grace. Please renew my innermost being so people will know that I am your child. Please grant me courage to be an ambassador for Christ. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
  40. 40. BE RECONCILED TO GOD40 成為基督的使者 哥林多後書 5:11-21(新標點和合本) 大家早上好,神有否在昨天的靈修或講道上跟你說話? 你是否有反思有 什麼地方需要改善你與神的關係? 今天也讓我們細心聆聽神的話語吧! 請找一個清靜的地方安靜自己,細讀以下經文三遍,默想耶穌給我們在 地上的職份。 靈修經文 勸人與上帝和好的職分 11 我們既知道主是可畏的,所以勸人。但我們在上帝面前是顯明的,盼望在你 們的良心裏也是顯明的。12 我們不是向你們再舉薦自己,乃是叫你們因我們 有可誇之處,好對那憑外貌不憑內心誇口的人,有言可答。13 我們若果顛狂, 是為上帝;若果謹守,是為你們。14 原來基督的愛激勵我們;因我們想,一人 既替眾人死,眾人就都死了;15 並且他替眾人死,是叫那些活着的人不再為 自己活,乃為替他們死而復活的主活。16 所以,我們從今以後,不憑着外貌認 人了。雖然憑着外貌認過基督,如今卻不再這樣認他了。17 若有人在基督裏, 他就是新造的人,舊事已過,都變成新的了。18 一切都是出於上帝;他藉着基 督使我們與他和好,又將勸人與他和好的職分賜給我們。19 這就是上帝在基 督裏,叫世人與自己和好,不將他們的過犯歸到他們身上,並且將這和好的 道理託付了我們。20 所以,我們作基督的使者,就好像上帝藉我們勸你們一 般。我們替基督求你們與上帝和好。21 上帝使那無罪的,替我們成為罪,好叫 我們在他裏面成為上帝的義。 DAY 3 morning devotion 2
  41. 41. BE RECONCILED TO GOD41 NOTES觀察 作者在經文提醒讀者要棄舊而更新(哥林多後 書5:17-20), 並效法基督的樣式,建在基督裏 的生命,活出主喜悅的樣式。既然我們得蒙主的 救贖和恩典,而活出新的生我們應使用祂賜的 生命在地上為祂作工。作者稱我們為基督的使 者。這詞可能有點虛大家可聯想一下在美國的 中國大使。他們雖身在美國,卻受中國保護、肩 負保護在美人的責任。同樣我們身為基督的使 者,雖身在世界,卻是屬天、肩負保護屬神的人 任。這樣看來,耶穌交付我們大使命的責任(馬 太福音28:16-20)是不能推卸的。 默想 1.基督如何使我們與神和好? 作者在經文說「 若有人在基督裏,他就是新造的人,舊事已過, 都變成新的了。」通過基督的犧牲,我們在上帝 的眼中成為義人。你生活中有沒有任何“舊我的 東西”攔阻你親近主?向上帝禱告,祈求祂賜給 你力量來克服它們。 2. 神的恩典是足夠的。你是否有盡力以基督使 者的身份而生活? 上帝如何使用你使別人與神 和好? 如果沒有,是什麼阻礙你? 3. 反思你的生活: 你信主後生命有什麼改變? 你怎樣分享你生命的見證來幫助他人與上帝 和好? 禱告 感謝主祢的恩典不曾離開我,我的肺腑是祢所 造的,我在母腹中祢已覆庇我,今天能在這 裡向祢禱告實在是祢的恩惠,求祢讓我在祢裡 面有更新改變,以致別人認出我是祢的兒女, 也賜給我勇氣負起「基督的使者」的職任。 奉主名求。阿們。

  44. 44. BE RECONCILED TO GOD44 Learning Objective Anyone who acts against the Lord within a community can lead to God’s wrath upon the whole community. Therefore, to reconcile with God, the community must be vigilant of the sins they commit. At the same time, the community should also be careful not to wrong brothers and sisters for sins they did not commit. Discussion Questions 1. What did Joshua say to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh? 2. What did the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh do when they settled down at Gilead? 3. What were the concerns of the Israelites’ leaders? Why? 4. What explanation did the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half- tribe of Manasseh give? Why did they build the altar? 5. What caused all these misunderstanding and disunity among the people of Israel? Application Questions 1. Why would God’s wrath fall on the whole group when only a small part of these people sinned against God? What can we do to avoid God’s wrath falling on the whole community? 2. What can we do to avoid misunderstanding and disunity within our church? 3. How can we stay vigilant to avoid misunderstanding and disunity among our community?

  50. 50. BE RECONCILED TO GOD50 DAY 3 workshops c C1 THE MAKING OF A LEADER C2 CAN I BE THE TRUE “ME” IN CHURCH Speaker: Ken Law Language: Cantonese Contrary to the common notion, most people think that a title is required for one to be a leader. However, according the biblical leadership master teacher Dr. J. Robert Clinton, “Leadership is a dynamic process in which a man or woman with God-given capacity influences a specific group of God’s people toward His pur- pose for the group.” This workshop will explore the five stages of a leader’s life-long development. We will focus on what God’s purpose upon us is; what our God-giv- en capacity is and see how one’s inner life growth will affect one’s life time ministry. This workshop is for all those emerging leaders that want to be faithful to the Lord not just for a short endeavor but their whole life. Speaker: Kaho Jim Language: English Sometimes, we feel like we have to act a certain way in church because of other’s expectations of us. It is difficult to be fully honest in church, but the Bible teaches us to speak truth in love. In this workshop, we will talk about how the Bible wants us to live as who we are in Christ. Brookside Youth Memorial C3 EVANGELISM IN EVERYDAY LIFE Speaker: Ken Fong Language: English God commands us to proclaim His name and make known what He has done among the nations. As Christians, we are commanded to fulfill the Great Commis- sion. No matter where we are or what we do, how do we direct others around us towards God? Fireside

  54. 54. BE RECONCILED TO GOD54 Another Helper - The Holy Spirit John 14:15-24 (ESV) Good morning everyone. Today is the last day of the conference. Please find a quiet place and spend two minutes thinking about what you have learned in the conference. Read the following passage three times and meditate on Jesus’ promises to the disciples. Scripture Passage Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit 15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forev- er, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21 Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” 22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, “Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me. DAY 2 DAY 4 morning devotion 3
  55. 55. BE RECONCILED TO GOD55 Observation The author says in verse 15: “If you love Me, you will obey My commandments.” The word “obey” appears four times in the passage, showing the importance of obeying the commandments. Obeying the commandments is to love Jesus (v21). Loving Jesus is also to be loved by His Father. Jesus knew that the world did not accept him and his followers (John 1:10-11). Therefore, He gave us the Holy Spirit as another Helper. In this passage, Jesus clearly points out that the Holy Spirit is with the person who believes in Him (v16). The believers are able to understand the truth in the Bible with the help of the Holy Spirit. Reflection 1. What is Jesus’ promise for those who keep His commandments? Although Jesus is not physically in the world, He gave us the Holy Spirit as another Helper to stay with us. Do you feel the presence of the Holy Spirit in your everyday life? 2. What are your challenges in obeying the commandments? Can you write down these challenges? 3. The passage mentioned that we need to obey the commandments if we love God. However, many people have challenges obeying the commandments in their daily lives. Are you willing to overcome your challenges by relying on God? Please pray for your challenges. Prayer Dear Heavenly Father, thank you Lord that I have come to know You deeper in this conference. Thank You for Your grace and love for us. I rely on the Holy Spirit to live in my daily life, so that I can have the courage to spread Your gospel to others who haven’t heard from You before. In Your Powerful Name I pray, Amen.
  56. 56. BE RECONCILED TO GOD56 聖靈保惠師 約翰福音14:15-24 (新標點和合本) 各位早晨,很快已經來到營會的最後一天。請找一個清靜的地方安靜自 己,先花兩分鐘時間反思過去兩天在營會的經歷和領受。細讀以下經文三 遍,默想耶穌對門徒的應許。 靈修經文 應許賜聖靈 15 「你們若愛我,就必遵守我的命令。16 我要求父,父就另外賜給你們一位 保惠師,叫他永遠與你們同在,17 就是真理的聖靈,乃世人不能接受的;因 為不見他,也不認識他。你們卻認識他,因他常與你們同在,也要在你們裏 面。18 我不撇下你們為孤兒,我必到你們這裏來。19 還有不多的時候,世人 不再看見我,你們卻看見我;因為我活着,你們也要活着。20 到那日,你們 就知道我在父裏面,你們在我裏面,我也在你們裏面。21 有了我的命令又遵 守的,這人就是愛我的;愛我的必蒙我父愛他,我也要愛他,並且要向他顯 現。」22 猶大(不是加略人猶大)問耶穌說:「主啊,為甚麼要向我們顯現,不 向世人顯現呢?」23 耶穌回答說:「人若愛我,就必遵守我的道;我父也必愛 他,並且我們要到他那裏去,與他同住。24 不愛我的人就不遵守我的道。你 們所聽見的道不是我的,乃是差我來之父的道。 DAY 2 DAY 4 morning devotion 3
  57. 57. BE RECONCILED TO GOD57 觀察 作者在第15節說:「你們若愛我,就必遵 守我的命令。」「遵守」在這短短的10節 經文中,出現了四次,可見遵守命令的 重要性。遵守命令就等於愛耶穌(v21), 愛耶穌就等於被神所愛。然而耶穌知道 世界不接納祂(約翰福音1:10-11),也 不接待信祂的人,故此祂賜下保惠師(聖 靈)與信祂的人同在(v16)。因有聖靈的 陪同,信主的人就能明白真理,也會不被 撇下。 默想 1.耶穌對遵守祂誡命的人有何應許?雖 然現在耶穌的身體不在世上, 但祂賜聖 靈每天都顧念著我們。你是否每天感受 到聖靈的同在呢? 2.你覺得遵守誡命有何挑戰?你能否把 這些挑戰寫下來? 3.上述經文多次勸挽我們愛神就要遵守 祂的誡命,但不是每個人每天都容易切 實遵守神的誡命,當中可能有很多的掙 扎。你是否願意每天透過聖靈的感動和 教導,來勝過你的挑戰呢? 請藉着禱告交 托給神。 禱告 感謝主!讓我們在營會中可以更深的認 識祢。我深知主耶穌的恩惠,上帝的慈愛 和聖靈的感動不會離開,故此我有勇氣 面對世界,負起對這代人傳福音的責任。 奉主名求。阿們。 NOTES
