A generation of transformed and passionate youths
making a difference in our communities!
Every Saturday 4 - 6 pm @ Glory Hall
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.
In Christ's service,
During our last leaders' retreat, I've outlined the direction that God had impressed upon my heart for the church. We need to be:
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.
