From the Pastor's Desk

Dear Friends

Passing by a shop that sells artificial flowers, I cannot help but noticed how beautiful and “real” looking the artificial flowers were. They even have one with a very realistic looking humming bird flying round a sunflower. I remembered an incident when I overheard a young lady looking at very beautiful flowers in a garden exclaimed: “The flowers are so beautiful and colourful; they look like fake flowers!” There was a time when we remarked about fake things looking like real ones. Now the beautiful things look fake! How the world had changed. Of course, now we have fake hair, false teeth, Botox, etc. You may not really know the real look of the person beside you.

In the fight for our soul, much begin in the mind. What is real and what is false? Do you really know? Who can we believe to tell us if the God we worship is real or there are others? When we cannot tell the real from the fake, then we are in great trouble. In this case, the stake is eternal life or eternal damnation.

The devil need not feed you with false information. All it needs to do is to distort the truth that you know. Why is there so many different “versions” of Christianity? Which one is correct? One church insists on the KJV while others feel otherwise. All these disagreements in the church cause splits and unhappiness, eventually leading to very sad endings. Must this be so?

We must major on the major and first things first. Our basic beliefs are the same – Jesus Christ came to die for our sins, resurrected to defeat death and will come again to judge the world. Our major duty is to live out the life of Christ – His death and resurrection. The worship styles, language used or clothing worn are secondary. They will not change our status in Christ. How we live the life will matter, not what we wear?

Brothers and sisters, it is important for us to identify truth from errors. How are we to do that if we do not study our Scripture well? Decide this day to know the truth.

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
