I was watching the people washing their hands and legs as they going in to pray. Then I looked at the food menu and saw the certified Halal mark on it. Whatever people want to say about these people, I truly respect them. They make their mark and they stand firm. No compromise on their worship, no taking a step back on their dietary requirement. The world can conform to us, we will not conform to the world. Truly I admire them.
Likewise, our Lord Jesus Christ taught us not to conform to the world and to be united in one love. Well, I do not need to elaborate that His disciples had generally failed Him. Look at the rate of betrayals and divorces. What about the abominable acts of changing the scripture just to justify their abominable sexual acts? Prayers are banned in schools in a “Christian” nation? Would this even be possible in another faith? Some of these Christians need to relook at their faith before calling themselves Christians.
I know there are pockets of Christians that live lives worthy of the gospel. They are to be respected and admired. How about the rest of us in the world? Are we conscientious in living out our faith? Would we stand up to the world in our stand on faith and order? Or would we just relent and give up our stand so as not to “offend” others? Why is it possible for others to pray in those schools (in USA) but Christians are not allowed to pray? Baffling? No, just plain lip service religion. There is no real relationship with the living Lord.
I hear of so called full-time workers wanting official time off from attending prayer meetings, what kind of standards can we expect of ordinary church members?
Brothers and sisters, let us not fool ourselves in the ways we live. God will judge all of us someday. Fight the good fight and do not yield. Do not run the race but forfeit your prize. Complete the race properly and win the eternal glory that is reserved for us.
In Christs 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.
