From the Pastor's Desk


Dear Friends


In the final stretch of the run in the recent ITU Triathlon World Series, a brother helped his brother across the finishing line even though he could have gone on and clinch first place. Instead he helped his brother across the finishing line ahead of himself, thus finishing third himself. It was a unselfish act on his part, especially so because of the glory of first place to be had.


Such selfless acts are hard to find in the “dog eat dog” world today. It is a “every man for himself” kind of society that we are living in. That is also why an act like this attracts much attention. We all long for such virtue, but many are not quite willing to “sacrifice” to give it, especially if there is a prize waiting. Consider the fact that more people are spending their time taking photographs or vid-eos to upload to social medias than wanting to help. It is more important that one be famous than someone else who is in need. Who cares is someone dies! Sad world to be in.


Can we Christians be like the world? Of course NOT! We are to be in the world but not of the world. Our behaviours have to be different. We had to be worthy of the gospel. People must see Christ in us. If that is not the case and we are no different from the world, then we failed our Lord in the worst way possible. I seriously doubt we will be able to face Him when He comes again. Will we share paradise with Him will be a big question mark?


Brothers and sisters, our Lord exalts us to do unto others what we want others to do to us. If we want others to treat us well, we treat others well. The world looks at power, riches and status. We must look at one another as the creation of God, one that God loves, and treat each other as pre-cious. No greater love is there than one who gives his life for the other. It is a tall order, a difficult command for us. Nevertheless, it is one that matters. Let us encourage each other to live well and pleasing to the Lord. We will need each other in this journey of faith. Who knows who will be push-ing us across the finishing line?


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
