PERSONAL TESTIMONY OF JOSEPH YONG

The Spirit of God has given us spiritual gifts but those gifts are worthless unless they are put to use in the service of God and His church. And just as the various members of the human body are independent on upon one another, some in more prominent places of service than others but all are equally important.

Galatian 5:13 -” view freedom in Christ not as an opportunity to do whatever one wants to Galatian 5:13 -” view freedom in Christ not as an opportunity to do whatever one wants to do. But true christian liberty is the freedom to serve one another in love “

 

The Spirit of God has given us spiritual gifts but those gifts are worthless unless they are put to use in the service of God and His church. And just as the various members of the human body are independent on upon one another, some in more prominent places of service than others but all are equally important.

 

This is also true of our Spiritual or new life. We ought to use the talents and abilities that God has given us to meet the needs of the other members of the body ( the church ).

 

Thus since my youth days, I have been most active, very vocal, physically serving in School school, choirs, youth fellowship, church council, counseling and champion the causes of the Boys Brigade(christian youth group ) in various churches. And also happily active in our church Mens’ ministry. Thus when the Mens’ ministry was disband in favour of the cell church.


I then decided to join my dear brother Richard and Edward in the Hymnsmen Group ministry. Its sincere, unpretentious, selfless desire to serve God through singing, living and sharing of God’s word, and reaching out to the smaller network of inter-denomination churches nationwide and beyond is truly what Apostle Paul would encourage the Galatians to do. Thus far, the results has greatly encourage all of us, Hymnsmen, not so much our unpolished singing but the genuine response in adoration to God arising from the songs itself. And the heartfelt testimonies of some of our Hymnsmen Businessmen has encourage other Businessmen and christians alike. Yes, Hymnsmen is free to serve one another in love, now and always. To God be the Glory, Amen.
