Publish Date : 15-Jan-2017
Author : The Steering Committee of the HKSKH Church Policy Paper - The Working Group for Discipleship Training

Advent is the season when the faithful are reminded to prepare for the coming of Christ with hope. Christmastide is the season when we are invited to receive Christ with joy. In Epiphanytide, we are reminded to bear witness with a renewed sense of mission -- to live out, to reveal the true and vibrant lives in Christ!

The Gospel readings for Epiphanytide introduce us about Christ's identity, His words and works, and His ministry. They give us a deeper understanding towards the incarnated Jesus who appeared two millennia ago and that how He worked out His mission. As Jesus' followers, we should familiarize and digest His deeds. So, we not only proclaim to people His teachings and works, but also live out Jesus’ life.

Jesus Christ incarnated. He revealed God and leads people to the road of salvation through His togetherness with words and deeds. Christians of all generations should also be ‘little Christ’ to reveal such grace of God and help people walk towards the road of salvation through our lives. In Epiphanytide, let’s bear the witness of the grace of the Lord.

  1. Review the Gospel Mark of Jesus' life. List the characters of Jesus which touch you most. Commit to follow Him.
  2. Review the Gospel Matthew about the Beatitudes. List the teachings of Jesus to benefit you most. Commit yourself in working them out.
  3. Review the Gospel Luke of parables of Jesus. List one parable that touches you most. Why?
