A generation of transformed and passionate youths
making a difference in our communities!
Every Saturday 4 - 6 pm @ Glory Hall
The PSLE period, a very stressful period for some adults. I overheard the conversation between a mother and her son, who just finished one of his papers. When the mother asked how he fared; the boy went on to outline the entire examination and pointed out how he made some mistakes resulting in wrong answers. “Did you correct them?” asked the mother. “No” said the boy, “I realised after I handed up the paper. I swore that I saw the woman pulled out a large chunk of her hair.
The question I asked myself is why most of us realise that we had made a mistake only when it is too late. How come we do not seem to be able to correct them before it is too late? All these had to do with our preparedness. Most people do not prepare themselves for the time of testing. It could be any kind of testing, some easier and some difficult. For example, how many of us check for emergency exits and escape routes when checking in the hotels overseas. Most Singaporeans just assume that it will be safe. So, when an emergency breaks out, they do not know what to do. Too late to try to find out where the exits are then.
The bible exhorts us to stay alert and be prepared. It is so easy for us to be complacent and get ourselves in trouble. Just like the boy, he knew what went wrong. That meant he knew what was right. It is just that he did not bother to follow up carefully. If not, he would have scored a lot more marks.
Read the bible, pray every day. Seek the Lord and keep close to Him. Then we will be well aware of the dangers surrounding us and not fall into them. The Holy Spirit will be there to guide us, and be sensitive to hear His voice.
Brothers and sisters, do not fall and regret. Do not live with regrets. Live according to God’s guidance through fellowship with Him and His church (your fellow members). Be protected by God’s angels and His angels on earth (your church mates). Live victoriously.
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.
