Passing by a shop that sells artificial flowers, I cannot help but noticed how beautiful and “real” looking the artificial flowers were. They even have one with a very realistic looking humming bird flying round a sunflower. I remembered an incident when I overheard a young lady looking at very beautiful flowers in a garden exclaimed: “The flowers are so beautiful and colourful; they look like fake flowers!” There was a time when we remarked about fake things looking like real ones. Now the beautiful things look fake! How the world had changed. Of course, now we have fake hair, false teeth, Botox, etc. You may not really know the real look of the person beside you.
In the fight for our soul, much begin in the mind. What is real and what is false? Do you really know? Who can we believe to tell us if the God we worship is real or there are others? When we cannot tell the real from the fake, then we are in great trouble. In this case, the stake is eternal life or eternal damnation.
The devil need not feed you with false information. All it needs to do is to distort the truth that you know. Why is there so many different “versions” of Christianity? Which one is correct? One church insists on the KJV while others feel otherwise. All these disagreements in the church cause splits and unhappiness, eventually leading to very sad endings. Must this be so?
We must major on the major and first things first. Our basic beliefs are the same – Jesus Christ came to die for our sins, resurrected to defeat death and will come again to judge the world. Our major duty is to live out the life of Christ – His death and resurrection. The worship styles, language used or clothing worn are secondary. They will not change our status in Christ. How we live the life will matter, not what we wear?
Brothers and sisters, it is important for us to identify truth from errors. How are we to do that if we do not study our Scripture well? Decide this day to know the truth.
In Christ's service,
During our last leaders' retreat, I've outlined the direction that God had impressed upon my heart for the church. We need to be:
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.
