Dear Friends


In a meeting with a long-time good friend recently, he told me about my constant “self-depreciating” joke about being good looking. Then he told me, in brutally blunt way, that I am just ordinary not handsome nor ugly. He told me that I do not need to do those self-depreciating jokes just to make others laugh. I totally agree with him that I am just ordinary. Never had one day did I think that I am good looking. The truth did hurt a little coming from a good friend, however, it did set me free. I also decided to stop with those jokes about me being good looking. 😊😊 Just happily enjoy being ordinary.


The truth will set you free. Of course, the context is the salvation of Jesus (truth) will set us free (eternal life). However, knowing the truth does set us free from deception, self or otherwise.


We live in a world where there are many things that tell us how we should look, live, like, or love. Most have to do with a materialistic world that we are in. Advertisements bombard us with how much we need those things. So what can a Philippe Patek do that a Seiko cannot? They both tell time but their costs are a world of difference. This deception drives most people to chase after wealth to fulfil their materialistic desires. I know of people who buy expensive bags but leave them in cupboards without using them even once. Such deceptions only seek to put us in bondage of evil. Because if we want it badly but do not get, then some bad things that we regret later may happen.


Brothers and sisters, let us be truly free in Christ and from this world. Do not live in deceptions. Friendship with the world is enmity with God. Live well and free from worldly burdens. Enjoy all that God gives you abundantly. Only the freedom in Christ is real and eternal. Remember “it is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Let us not return to a life of slavery.” (Gal 5:1)


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
