From the Pastor's Desk


Dear Friends


Mosquitoes, Zika, Dengue fever, and exploding batteries hogged the news scene of late. Many peo-ple got themselves really worried. Insect repellents were sold out, rumours that one’s phone will blow up and the next big things will do likewise, all served to show how easily we all panic. What will happen in a few weeks? People get used to the “bad” news and life goes on. Long as I remem-bered the Singapore government had encouraged the people to help stop breeding of mosquitoes since the 60’s. The same message goes on today, and yet many ignore it but make a big fuss of the Zika disease. When we do not do our part to minimize mosquito breeding, what can we expect?


We all know of the danger of immoral living. How it can destroy us, our families, our society, and our country. Yet, for the gratification of self, many decide that it should be the responsibilities of others to live right. As for themselves, they live to gratify themselves. Smokers will not care about the secondhand smoke that others breathe in. In fact, they ignore the warning of critical illness and disease because of the thinking that it will not happen to them. Wishful thinking!


Well, we must watch the way that we live our lives out. Are we good testimonies to the people around us, especially to those in our family circles. Or are we stumbling blocks to them? When we fail as a Christian family because of immoral living and unforgiveness, can we expect a non-Christian to want to believe in the God we worship? Probably not. Oh! They should look at God and other Christians for the example, not us. Is that so? The excuse that I am a “young and weak” Christian should not be used. A Christian is a Christian, no excuse. Granted that we are on different phases of growth in our spiritual journey. We must, however, grow continually.


Brothers and sisters, it is not time to panic or to push responsibilities. It is time to act, and we must be the first to do so. Live a life worthy of the gospel is required of us individually and corporately. Let us spur each other on.


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
