Dear Friends


Christmas and New Year celebrations had hardly passed, and Chinese New Year celebration is at hand. It is indeed a time of jolly making and spreading good tidings all over. CNY, for the Chinese, is supposedly a time of meeting up with relatives and friends to celebrate the harvest of the past year and looking forward to the next. For the children, it is a time of receiving some extra pocket money in terms of ‘Hong-baos.’ A joyous mood is definitely in the air as everyone busied themselves in celebrating.


It is also good for us to take time to reflect upon the whole occasion. In a melancholic mood, we can say that time just pass us very quickly. Another year had passed without us making the most of it. On the happy side, we can look forward to new and exciting opportunities. Whatever it is, we can definitely participate in such a festival in a joyous and productive manner.


A celebration need not be a time of been busy. Remember the example of Martha busying herself and was told to slow down and relax. Likewise, for us, CNY can be a good time for warm fellowship and catching up with old friends and relatives. It also provides us an opportunity to mend some relationship problems and thereby exhibit a good Christian witness. Who knows? Maybe you could usher someone into the kingdom of God during the festival.


We live in a culture and society just like fish lives in water. We cannot get out of it but we need not lament about it. Therefore, it is better for us to make full use of this season than to make a fuss over its spiritual significance, for example to toss or not to toss. Is there real spiritual significance to a food dish? It is all up to you. Asking for blessings is not wrong, we ask God for them all the time. More importantly is for us to watch out what we ask for. So, I would encourage you to enjoy what God has given with thanksgiving and help others know the blessings of God.


One that note, I would like to wish one and all a happy and blessed Chinese New Year.


God bless.


In Christ's service,

Revd Barry Leong (Vicar)

Message from the Vicar


During our last leaders' retreat, I've outlined the direction that God had impressed upon my heart for the church. We need to be:


A Word-based and Spirit-led Church that demonstrates the holiness, love, power and grace of God.


Word-based
- The church has to base its every decision and action on the Word of God, i.e. the Bible. We cannot do anything out of this principle and must strive to live within it.


Spirit-led
- As opposed to some who advocate that we should be purpose driven, the Bible only shows us examples of saints being led by the Spirit. Unless we are led by the Holy Spirit, all human wisdom will lead us to way of destruction. In MPCC, every activity and ministry must be prayer through very carefully and discerned that it is of God before we engage in them. Here I would like to encourage all of you to join the monthly prayer meeting.


Demonstrate the Holiness of God
- The holiness of God is best demonstrated by the believers living by holy lifestyle in their everyday living. How else do we think others will praise God as holy if they do not see the disciples living in holiness?


Demonstrate the Love of God
- The love of God is best shown by believers acting in love in everyday lives to believers and non-believers alike. They should not be shown fervently only in times of crisis like now in the "Hai Yan" disaster. It is during the everyday mundane life that a touch of kindness and act of love that will make the difference. MPCC members must make that difference.


Demonstrate the power of God
- We do not live timid and powerless lives. Do not let the devil fool us into thinking that it is so. This is our Father's world and all authority has been given unto us in Jesus' name. We, His children, can live out the power and authority given to us. Learn to use it to pray for people, change the lives of others and ourselves, make a difference in everything we do. We have the power of prayer and our Father in heaven listens to us. Use it for God's glory.


Demonstrate the grace of God
- The grace of God is best demonstrated by engaging in missions and evangelism. How else can the world receive the grace of God unless they are told about it? We must really make it our daily desire to bring the gospel to others.


The church must also start to fulfill its destiny, that is, to evangelise and to bring the good news to everybody, far and near. We in MPCC had been rather active in missions overseas. I hope we can be even more fervent for souls around us. About four in five people we meet everyday is lost and in need of the gospel. If we are so concerned for the victims of disasters, let us be even more concern for the people whose destination may be hell. They need the good news more urgently than anything else. All said, we still need to engage in good works and never be weary doing it.


My dear brethrens, I wish you a blessed New Year. May we decide to live a life worthy of God. May it be that some day we can always look back and say that it was a life well lived.


The love, peace and grace of God be with you all always.


Revd Barry Leong
