From the Pastor's Desk

Dear Friends

The aircon blower unit in my room was leaking badly for two days. At first, I thought the drain pipe was blocked. I tried to clear the pipe but it did not solve the water leakage. Finally, I had to call in the aircon servicing expert. He took an hour to strip the blower unit, clean out the little bit of dirt from the back of the drain behind the unit. Voila! The condensation water now flowed out of the drain pipe instead of dripping onto my bed.

So often in our lives that we saw something really wrong with ourselves. It was not that we do not want to do something to rectify them. Somehow, nothing really worked. They continued to go wrong. Many a time, we just want to throw in the towel and quit. Yet, deep down we want to change for the better. We do not want the “leaking” to continue.

Sometimes, it is that small bit of “dirt” (sin) hidden somewhere out of sight that is causing the problem that is so prominently manifested outwardly. If we get rid of the sin, we get rid of the symptom. For example, a child has poor school results. The child is perfectly normal and should score reasonable results. At closer scrutiny, the child stays up late at night and wakes up early in the morning for school. This resulted in tiredness that is not immediately noticeable. The tiredness led to poor concentration, which leads to poor understanding and therefore poor results. When the child was made to sleep early, the result improved. The “dirt” was cleaned out.

If we do not check our lives daily for unknown sins against God, then we will start to see things happening in our lives that we really detest. We can then try all kinds of remedies, spiritual or otherwise, and find that nothing will work. We need the Holy Spirit to show us the “sin” that we ignored, that which we must repent and change. Then and only then will we solve the problems in our lives.

Brothers and sisters, let us live a holy life by examining it often with Scripture and prayer. May we all live a wonderful life; free from the shackles of sin.

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.

- 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.

- 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
