What Should We Do?

We hope you have been able to enjoy some of the warmer weather and upcoming Sakura season (safely!).

We have some great things coming up in the life of the Church and also some things to celebrate!
-new marriage (congratulations Chris & Rumy)
-new babies born (congratulations Hideki & Ai)
-Zoe International School opening in April and already students from around 10 nations have joined (www.zoeinternationalschool.com)
-Operation Easter Egg for families (www.lifehou.se/operationaeasteregg) has launched coming up to Easter Celebrations!

This week Ps Rod has been sharing this scripture in light of our current circumstances,
1 Chronicles 12:32 (NIV) “from Issachar, men who understood the times and knew what Israel should do—200 chiefs, with all their relatives under their command”

This scripture is talking about a group of people who “Knew What To Do And When To Do It”.
I believe we all need this wisdom in 2021!

1. Understand The Times
Let’s not just see the times, or read the news, but let’s step back and understand the greater picture.
Sometimes we can get caught up in emotion or rumor, but I believe God wants us to be people of wisdom and understanding.

2. Know God’s Heart
How do we know what to do?
By knowing God.
The closer we are with God, the more our decisions will reflect his heart.
To know God lets be spending time daily in prayer and reading the Bible.

3. Be Part Of A “Tribe”
Issachar means “reward” and they were a tribe of Israel.
Our Church Lifehouse is part of the greater Church across the world, and also within our Church we have smaller tribes called “Connect Groups” or “Dream Teams”.
When we get around other good people they inspire us, encourage us and make life fun!

It’s not enough just to know what and when to do, but let’s do it with other people.
As the national emergency lifts let’s pray for Godly wisdom moving forward.
We are excited to increase in-person gatherings and we’ll have some updates for you this week!

Have a great weekend and see in you in Church or at Connect Group!
Josh & Yuki.
