Representation

When athletes take part in the Olympic Games, they also represent the country under whose flag they are competing. The symbols of the different nations are omnipresent, especially at the awards ceremonies.

For many this is a huge additional motivation not only to train and compete for their own success but also for their country. If they do their job well, they might even receive a decoration from their head of state at home. For this they do not even necessarily have to come back with a gleaming medal hanging from their neck. Sometimes those who did not win but gave everything and behaved in an exemplary manner are celebrated the most.

We are disciples of Jesus, whom He has sent into the world to represent Him. In our everyday lives—whether it is the children at school or the parents at work—we do not only work upon our own success. We represent Jesus Christ. Our mission is to live up to Him and His teaching—a wonderful motivation to grow more and more into His nature.

What we receive in return eclipses any medals or other decorations: whoever represents Jesus, whoever stands up for Him and fights for Him, can be absolutely sure that Jesus will do the same for him, regardless of whether we are successful or not.

We pray for MH17
On board MH17 were also 4 members of the New Apostolic Church according to news on the websites of NAC Netherlands and NAC North Rhine-Westphalia.

The Chief Apostle comments in a message as follows:
"The misfortune hits me very hard! We have prayed yesterday evening for the victims in the circle of the Apostles here in Kigali / Rwanda, where I am currently visiting our faithful. My flight departed only minutes before the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 from Amsterdam. Maybe I have even met some of these people at the airport. I pray intensely for all the victims and their families and share the suffering of our brothers and sisters."

The New Apostolic Church Malaysia reaches out in thought and prayer to all mourning families. We join the international community to offer sympathy and condolences. May healing and forgiveness be brought about by the comfort of the Holy Spirit.
