A generation of transformed and passionate youths
making a difference in our communities!
Every Saturday 4 - 6 pm @ Glory Hall
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.
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.
