The straight three-night evangelistic rally given by Rev. Dr. Stephen Tong was brought to a conclusion by the grace of our Heavenly Father. The rally left much for Sibu Christians to reflect upon!
In all honesty, had we as God-loving Christians from different denominations put good efforts into this rally? Let us hold ourselves to be answerable and accountable to God! The turnout for the three nights showed that there was a lot more space to be filled up. Rev. Dr. Stephen Tong reminded the congregation more than one time in his message," You have to be diligent in serving God."
The speaker's message for the three nights was both evangelical and revival. More than half of the congregation were Christians coming from various churches of different denominations. Rev. Dr. Stephen Tong's message was spiritually uplifting. Those participants who opened themselves up to God's words would have been the reapers!
There has got to be a systematic follow-up for the newly committed. Don't let them slip off down the road! Churches have got to take it up to bring them up.
God has enriched Rev. Dr. Stephen Tong with strength to carry on God's work. At 70, he has set no agenda yet to retire. "With God's blessings, I wish to come back for gospel rallies in Sarawak in three years' time. I plan to have them in Mandarin with BM translation." I salute Rev. Tong for being untiring in serving God!
