I boil my water the old fashion way, kettle over open fire. The kettle had been with me for more than twenty years and it still works well, except for the cover to the pouring spout coming loose at times. It takes a little skill and patience to push it back in and all is well again. The idea is to align the holes on the cover with those on the kettle and push the pin through. Sound easy, of course, easier said than done. When you push the holding pin through the first two holes, the last hole cannot be seen. It takes a lot of tweaking in order to have them all aligned and get the pin through smoothly. Once done, the kettle is as good as new and will last many more years.
Our walk with the Lord is the same. We may think that we are walking closely and well with the Lord. Then we realised that there is something not exactly right. Upon careful introspection, we may find that we are a little off the will of the Lord. Not a problem, just get back in and all is well. Only that it is not so easy as we often find it difficult to discern God’s will. And we search here and there to be in the will. So, how do we get back in?
The answer is not as simple as many would like. It takes much patience to seek God in quietness and sincerity. Then when we thought we know, we realise that we are still off. The pin does not slide in. The idea is to get the direction correct, then we keep adjusting to reach the point when we are in perfect harmony with His will. It is this part of constant adjustment that most cannot stand. In this instant society, where everything must work immediately, we want it to fall in place immediately. We have no patience to adjust, even if it is the Almighty God that we are dealing with. Adjust we must even if it causes us great inconvenience. Then and only then we can live truly in God’s will.
Brothers and sisters, life in the will of God is the way we are designed to live. If we are to live for God in this earthly life then seek His will and start adjusting. There are no easy or standard answers. To each God has a plan, though some of the plans for us coincide. Live your life well, fight the good fight and finish the race.
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.
