Beginning of Spring
Then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil. (Deuteronomy 11:14)
In the 1980s, Trans World Radio had a very popular program called "Spring Returns to the Earth". It has nurtured lives of countless countrymen, and its impact also lasts till today.
"More than 30 years ago, Teacher Xie Han led me to accept the Lord Jesus as my personal Savior in the program "Spring Returns to the Earth" he hosted in Trans World Radio. Since I believed in the Lord, I have felt in my heart that the Lord Jesus and His great love and salvation lead me to do good and not to do evil. Until now, I am still listening to the Gospel programs of Trans World Radio. The Gospel programs of Trans World Radio have already accompanied me for 30 years non-stop. Thank you Trans World Radio for the Gospel program broadcast, the truth and salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ!" This is a letter from Brother Liu, a listener in Inner Mongolia.
Gospel broadcast goes boundless, travels time and space, impacts lives, and bears lasting fruit. This is the reason and motivation behind our striving on, regardless of circumstances good or bad.
Although the wintery cold is still reluctant to go - temperature this morning recorded 12 degrees Celsius in urban areas in Hong Kong - the fact is that today marks the Beginning of Spring in the Chinese Lunar calendar. We can proclaim aloud: Spring has come! May the spring rains of God fall! May He grant us grains and new wine, supply what we need, and give us hope, courage and strength of the season spring! Amen!
