Father Ahnsahnghong & Mother Who Gave Us Eternal Life

We were speaking yesterday about how so many young people can be so involved in this church. Normally, we'd expect elders and mature-aged people to fill a church, however, in Church of God, World Mission Society the elderly are the minority.

I think, what is it that's different about this church from all other churches? Actually, when I look around at the COG, WMS, it seems that all of the members here were in the same situation. We were not satisfied with the word of pastors and longed to hear the word of God. All of us have either been in a particular denomination for a long time; went to so many denominations and stopped going to church all together; or some of us didn't believe God at all! But we all have something in common: when we heard the words of eternal life, we wanted more.

In this world, we can do so much to be well off. We can get an good education, become wealthy, have a lot of friends, and even produce a great family. But who on this earth is able to take way their own death? Even though we have everything we need in this world, (which lasts 60-70-80 years) what about the next world (which will never end) This is what we need God for. So no matter what our spiritual situation was prior to meeting Father Ahnsahnghong and Mother Jerusalem, when we learned that we can have eternal life we took it. And God made it simple for us, even sacrificing everything in the process.

John 6:54 "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day."

Luke 22:13 "They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover. 14When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. 15And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer...19And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me." 20In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you."

All thanks to Father Ahnsahnghong and Mother for giving us the way to have eternal life!
