From the Pastor's Desk

Dear Friends

My flight reached the destination right on time, for which I was thankful. As we prepare to alight from the plane, the captain announced that there was some technical difficulties with the aerobridge. We will have to wait a few minutes. The few minutes turned into an hour before some airport officials decided to bring a mobile gangway and a bus. Finally we got out of the plane and was ferried to the terminal. The whole saga was due to indecisive action of the various officials of the airport.

We are faced with making decisions every day. We decide to do or not to do something. Even not making a decision is a decision by itself. There is no escape from it. Making a decision is not the frightening part The part that we are afraid of is making a wrong decision. We are always unsure if we have sufficient facts to make a good decision. Past failures cause us to be even more frighten and careful about making them. Sometimes we get paralyzed by this fear.

Well, there are many decisions in life that can be made with reasonable confidence basing on facts and learning. There are others that we make and just hope for the best. Some decisions are just really stupid moves as we know that they are wrong in the first place, eg. committing a sinful act. Nevertheless, a decision must be made.

There is one decision to make that no one can ignore: to accept Jesus Christ as Saviour or not. It is a decision that one must not push back. However, many delayed making this decision and some to their own peril. Decide, my friends, and don't delay. Faith is the answer to your doubts.

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
