Dear Friends


Four cyclists passed by me during my morning exercise. Further front, they made a turn to the left. Three of them followed the proper route on the cycle path. One of them took a short cut across the grass patch and true enough she fell from her bicycle. The rest laughed at her and chided her with “I told you so!” remarks. She would not have fallen had she also took the longer but proper way. She probably thought that she was clever to take that short cut but it backfired.


In a world of instant gratification, we all love short cuts to success. We want to get there fast, and if we can, we want it Now. In the rush to succeed and accumulating, many had fallen prey to the sinful world. Betrayal, backstabbing, quarrels and murders are all but results of wants and covetousness. Cutting corners without thinking through the consequences as long as our desires are gratified.


Believe me, our every action has its consequence. By cutting corners, the building can be less stable and sturdy than it was designed for. People could be injured or die as a result. No, it won’t happen! Is that what you think? Think again. There were news reports of buildings in certain nations collapsing because the contractors used bottles instead of bricks in part of the buildings that are hidden. This was revealed only when the people died due to the building collapsing.


What can we do to get out of this vicious cycle? Well, we are in the period of Lent, a season of deliberate denial of self-indulgences. When we break off the hold that the world had on us, then we can truly be free. Then and only then can we not follow the ways of the world. We need not take short cuts, we can live well. We can be in touch with our real self and enjoy God.


Brothers and sisters, let us walk the way we should. God will never short change any of us. Scripture tells us that He will do all that He promised. He never fails. Love never fails.


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.


Word-based
- 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.


Spirit-led
- 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
