SATURDAY Chinese Service @ 7.30pm / SUNDAY English Service @ 9.30am
Wishing all of you a Happy and Blessed New Year! WELCOME HOME everyone!
We had a great start on the first Sunday of 2021! Despite of the pandemic situation, WE ARE TRUSTING God for a greater year in 2021. Our church theme for 2021 is ‘May God Be Glorified!’ [Psalm 115:1], and we want to honour Him in four specific areas of our existence as a church.
OUR emphasis in these 4-quarters would be as follows:
1. Our CHOICES [Deuteronomy 30:15-16, NLT]
2. Our COOPERATION [Philippians 2:1-4, MSG]
3. Our COMMITMENT [Deuteronomy 6:5-7, HCSB]
4. Our COMMISSION [Matthew 28:16-20, NIV]
For the first-quarter of January to March will be — OUR CHOICES.
Deuteronomy 30:15-16, “15 “Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster. 16 For I command you this day to love the Lord your God and to keep his commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in his ways. If you do this, you will live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you and the land you are about to enter and occupy.” [NLT]
‘Choices’ defines us, and determines OUR tomorrow.
LIFE is a series of choices, each determining the trajectory IT WILL take. Will we choose life, by allowing OUR hearts to BE changed by God’s Word? Or, will we default to OUR human nature, a passive choice leading to death? Will you choose life?
LIFE is a series of choices we make every day. Hour by hour, minute by minute, all these choices have consequences WHICH WILL directly AFFECT us and those around us for OUR GOOD, or to OUR detriment.
While everything in life IS NOT laid out in black and white choices, there are many decisions WE CAN make that GIVE us direction and purpose. By the power of God living IN us if we DON’T purposely make these GOOD choices by default, the opposite happens.
God’s Word, Truth, teaches us THERE IS a better way. The right way ~ His way! This choice IS the path of abundant life, full of grace and mercy.
There are two forces at work in this world, EACH with a PLAN to capture our heart and devotion. Good and evil, God and satan, life and death. By God’s power, it WILL fight against YOUR natural tendencies or WILL YOU let YOUR human nature win? It’s YOUR choice. God’s DESIRE IS that YOU WILL choose His way. Choose LIFE, or death will choose you.
Let’s GLORIFY GOD in OUR choices. Amen!
May sure you all stay safe, observe SOP strictly, and take care of yourselves, especially your health.
You all have a great, safe and blessed year!
