An important announcement
How do you announce the coming of a big event? eg. Concert, Social
How does God announce the arrival of His Son, Jesus?
He makes this announcement in three big ways. Mark 1:1-11
- The Old Testament prophets
- John the Baptist
- A voice from heaven.
What God has to say is extrememly important as shown by the way he makes these announcements. He is saying ... here is my Son, listen!
Sadly, many today in Australia reject Christianity. They do not listen. They do not think what God has to say is important.
Many youths, however, with Chinese backgrounds are embracing Christianity.
This reminds me of the words of our former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, John Anderson
"Wouldn’t it be an incredible irony if we from a traditional Caucasian background who walk away from our faith and our culture and let it decay around us, have the whole situation picked up and retrieved for us by New Australians? God bless them if it happens .."
John Anderson has also pointed to the involvement of many Chinese Christian youths in 'Rice Youth Sydney'.

Many youths of Asian background in Australia see the immense value of the Christian gospel and have embraced Christianity.
In fact, many Chinese are becoming Christians.
Matthew 13:45-46 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it."
Sadly, many people in our Western culture have have trampled these fine pearls under their feet.
They fail to see the immense value of Jesus and the Christian message.
How important is Jesus to you?
