IRECT Family Retreat 2017 Atas nama panitia retreat, kami mengucapkan puji syukur kepada Tuhan atas kesempatan mengadakan IRECT Family Retreat yang ke enam belas. Salah satu definisi kata ‘retreat’ adalah mengundurkan diri dari atau menjauhi kehidupan rutinitas untuk bisa belajar, berefleksi, dan berdoa. Para pembicara kita: Dr. Yudha Thianto, Pdt. Agus Sadewa, Han Gil Lee, dan Rev. Lisa Vander Leek akan memberi pengarahan dan pengajaran mengenai Christian Character. Ada banyak definisi dan atribut dari ‘character.’ Namun yang paling mudah dimengerti adalah definisi yang diberikan oleh Bill Hybels: “Who you are when no one is looking.” Sekali lagi, selamat datang dan menikmati IRECT Family Retreat.

Shepherd’s Note Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Welcome to IRECT’s Family Retreat 2017. Each year we can gather is a gift from God. We pray these days are used by Him to strengthen and encourage us in our lives as disciples of Christ. Thank you for the time, expense, and effort to join this Family Retreat. Know that we have been praying along with many of you that God will bless the messages, the singing, and the fellowship – all to the equipping of His church and the glory of His own name. Each time this Family Retreat is put together we treat it as its own, as if it may be the last one of these we do. Coordinating schedules, getting time to pray and plan and talk are challenging. We each have our own works and ministries that we are responsible for. Each time is a privilege, too. All of us in the committee feel that it is a privilege to be able to serve and lead a retreat like this. We do not take it lightly. There are some changes in the lineup of speakers. This year Professor Yudha Thianto will be speaking at our plenary sessions. We anticipate his teaching and preaching, praying for God to instruct our minds and challenge our hearts. Our teenagers will have Han Gil Lee as their speaker. And finally, Lisa Vander Leek is with us again, teaching our children. Another thing that is different this time is, of course, the theme. Last time we considered the Christian Ministry. We considered how the gospel can guide and shape our ministries. This time we want to focus on character formation. As Christ’s disciples, we want to grow in conformity to His image. We believe that the acid test of all character formation is this: Are we becoming more like Jesus? Are the contours of our character being shaped by His image, formed in His likeness? This ongoing transformation is possible for each of us. We can become more and more like our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. But there is only one way, that is through our increasing understanding and application of the gospel. The goal of our theme “Till Christ is Formed in You” is to help us in this process – to help us discover new depths of joy in what God has accomplished through Christ and the Holy Spirit to deliver us from the guilt, the shame, and the grip of sin. Every message is bent to this end. The speakers have prepared and prayed trying to understand what burden the Lord has given them to share with us. Pray that God will pour out His Spirit on us during these days.

What God has begun in you, he will complete. Your destiny has already been decided. The One who decided it will give you all you need to get there. – Timothy S. Lane

My sin, O the bliss of this glorious thought! My sin, not in part, but the whole, is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more; praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! – Philip Paul Bliss

In justification, the word to be addressed to man is believe – only believe; in sanctification the word must be “watch, pray, and fight.” - J. C. Ryle

That’s the prayer of your pastor and servant, Do you mortify; do you make it your daily work; be always at it whilst you live; cease not a day from this work; be killing sin or it will be killing you. – John Owen

GO HOME 7

I ASKED THE LORD 1. I asked the Lord that I might grow In faith and love and ev’ry grace, Might more of His salvation know, And seek more earnestly His face. 2. ‘Twas He who taught me thus to pray, And He, I trust, has answered prayer,

But it has been in such a way As almost drove me to despair. 3. I hoped that in some favored hour At once He’d answer my request And, by His love’s constraining pow’r, Subdue my sins and give me rest. 4. Instead of this, He made me feel The hidden evils of my heart And let the angry pow’rs of hell Assault my soul in ev’ry part. 5. Yea, more with His own hand He seemed Intent to aggravate my woe, Crossed all the fair designs I schemed, Humbled my heart and laid me low. 6. “Lord, why is this,” I trembling cried; “Wilt Thou pursue Thy worm to death?” “’Tis in this way,” the Lord replied, “I answer prayer for grace and faith.” 7. “These inward trials I employ From self and pride to set thee free And break thy schemes of earthly joy That thou may’st find thy all in Me.”

To mortify a sin is not utterly to kill, root it out, and destroy it, that it should have no more hold at all nor residence in our hearts. It is true this is that which is aimed at; but this is not in this life to be accomplished. – John Owen

Till sin be bitter, Christ will not be sweet. – Thomas Watson 9

Notes

I know of no other way to triumph over sin long-term than to gain a distaste for it because of a superior satisfaction in God. – John Piper 10

Notes

You pray and make your requests made known unto God, and God will do something. It is not your prayer that is going to do it, it is not you who is going to do it, but God. “The peace of God that passeth all understanding” – He, through it all, “will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” – 11 Martyn Lloyd-Jones
