Dear Friends


To manage all the tasks that I have to handle, I spend a lot of time to list them down. Upon completion of any task I cross them out from the list. Of course, the tasks are prioritized according to four categories: Urgent and important, Urgent but not important, Important but not urgent, Not important and not urgent. It is tedious but proved to be reasonably effective in helping me get my tasks done.


Very often, I do not know how I manage to do so many things within the short time frame given. Other times, I do not know how I even get it done. Some tasks, I must add, need plenty of prayers. Without prayer I do not think that I can even do some of the tasks given. Suffice to say that often I am too busy not to pray.


Recently, I was introduced to a “Thanksgiving List.” Simply, it is to write down a list of things that I can give thanks to the Lord for during the day, week or month. The list helps to focus our attention to the intervention of God in our lives. Otherwise, we might become the 90 percent who did not come back to give thanks to the Lord!


It is good to match our Thanksgiving list to our To-do list. I believe that many of you pray for the Lord to give you wisdom and assistance in your endeavours. However, to give thanks for them after they are done is often neglected. Excuses like ‘I give thanks to God in my heart’. Why I say it is an excuse is because that is the common answer for many when asked if they had given thanks. Why do you think there are so few people coming forward to give thanks to God, most times after much coaxing!


We really have to learn to give thanks. It is our acknowledgement of God in our lives. It is our knowing that He is interested in every aspect of our lives. Only when we are consciously seeking His presence in our lives through thanksgiving, then we are fully aware of His presence. May the Lord be with you always.


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
