Sorry, Attributes, it is not that I did not want to buy the Valentine products. I just do not know to whom I should give after I purchase them Confused smile But at least, I managed to sell one Devotional Bible to my CG friend! Open-mouthed smile

Pastor Niko preached about being obedient to the Lord and how this obedience will bring abundant blessing. However, this obedience has to be based on first love. After preaching, Pastor Niko prayed for the members who happened to have lost the first love. Such a wonderful service! Pastor Niko is just almost like older brother of Pastor Kong.

After the service, my CG had dinner at Marina Square.

Sermon Review VII: Sermon on the Mount CD 6: Blessed are the Pure in Heart

Sermon on the Mount power!

301220101083

 

Matt 5:8, James 4:8. It is my choice to purify my heart. God won’t do the purifying for me. Pure heart really means transparent water, crystal clear, no mixed motives or divided loyalties. Pure heart does not mean sinless perfection; it is about a heart of single devotion to God in the midst of my imperfection. Psalm 86:11. There is tendency for my heart to get distracted. However, I need to strive to have single devotion to God. God does not only see what I do, but also the motive behind my doing. Leviticus 19:19. God hates mixture. Rev 22:11. There is always a tendency to have mixed heart in the end times. Mixed heart leads to partial obedience. Partial obedience is really a form of disobedience. For God, partial obedience is the same as witchcraft and idolatry.

Gal 4:9. “Son” refers to a mature believer, not just a baby Christian. Only the mature Christian will inherit the kingdom of God. Gal 5:19. There are Christians who live according to the flesh. For sure, they will not inherit the kingdom of God.  A mark for mature believer is full obedience. Becoming a Christian is just the beginning. We need to keep obeying God all the way.

The obedient will see God, that is they will see God remarkably clearly. It is not only casual distant relationship;  we can even hear and see God clearly. Christianity is not just a set of philosophy, it is about walking with God. This promise of seeing God clearly is for this present life, not after we pass away.

Purity is not about what we wear. Holiness is about the presence of the Holy Spirit in life. Ps 24:3-4. Clean hands means honesty and integrity, it is not at all about touching clean or unclean things. Integrity means we integrate God’s moral values in our daily activities. 2 Chr 16:9. God wants to show Himself strong to those who are loyal to Him.

 

Self Reflection

A heart of obedience is the one God is looking for. Hmm, I need to cultivate one everyday although I may fall once in a while.

CG Meeting 27, January, 2011

Fantastic time in God’s presence together with God’s people!

My leader shared about 4 things we all should grow in this year:

1.) Love. Love grows as we pray for God to increase our capacity, decide to do good, and then act on it.

2.) Spiritual knowledge. It grows as we read the Bible and meditate on God’s Word

3.) Faith. It grows when we pray in the Spirit

4.) Good health. Exercise, sufficient sleep and eat healthily are definitely important.

 

After the meeting we celebrated Yesheng’s birthday!

Meditating on God’s Word ^_^

A wonderful word of meditation today!

270120111272

“Make your heart golden pot of manna to preserve the memorial of the heavenly Bread on which you have fed in the days gone by… Let your intellect be exercised concerning the Lord Jesus. Meditate on what you read. Do not stop at the surface; dive into the depths.” (January 27 devotion, page 35)

I guess I am guilty in this instance as I often just read through the devotional book and do not meditate on it. Actually there is one thing bothering my mind concerning a part of God’s Word. However, I suppose it is too personal so I won’t explain it in detail.

If I am not wrong, Pastor Tan used to say this before, “I would rather you read one verse and meditate on it. That’s how you “chew” God’s Word.”

Time for me to repent, obviously.

Leaders’ Meeting 25, Jan, 2011

I initially did not intend to attend the service last night as I wanted to spend more time in my work, only for Attributes project meeting. Nevertheless, since I finished work earlier, I went there and I managed to join in the service. I did not get to enjoy the praise and worship session. But at least, I could still listen to the sermon by Pastor Kong.

Pastor Kong shared 5 things leaders should do in order to appreciate the members.

a.) Be kind.

b.) Be generous.

c.) Be affectionate.

d.) Be attentive

e.) Be accepting.

At the end of the message, Pastor Kong shared his personal life which moved many us into tears…

Good news! We will see Pastor Kong and Sun more often in church!! Smile

After that Attributes project meeting began. The meeting lasted not for a long as it was quite late. Luckily I stay in NTU.

In the middle of the meeting, we celebrated Serene’s and Phyllis’ birthday! Smile Only Attributes people can see the video of the birthday, though.

Do look forward to more exciting time with Attributes pretty soon, ok?

Summary of Saturday’s Happening 22, January, 2011 (Part 2)

Some members were not able to attend the Appreciation event on 16, Jan, 2011. Since they happened to have won some awards, Morgan presented the awards to them during duty time. You can watch the three videos on my FB. One of the links is here:

Congratulations to Alvin, Gad, Wailun and Audrey  jie for winning the awards! Smile

My HP battery died out during the service so I was not able to write down the sermons. Nevertheless, I still remember what Pastor Phil preached. Basically, I had to leave behind my past. Past means past and I need to keep running the race God has set before me. Surrounding me are the saints from the past who cheer me up and before me is Lord Jesus Himself. Hmm, since they all made it, I can make it too with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Such a great sermon!

After the duty, we had dinner at Bedok.

So sorry there is no photo as my HP really died Confused smile

Summary of Saturday’s Happening 22, January, 2011 (Part 1)

Attributes  Expo Saturday Team B’s first duty of the year! The atmosphere was so charged up with people so enthusiastic to serve! Open-mouthed smile

After going through some discussion in email, we decided to start the duty at 2 pm instead of 1.30 pm. The reason is that there is an idle time from 4 to 4.30 pm after the members finish setting up things. What is important is not the number of hours in serving, but effectiveness in the serving. Hence, we changed the reporting time to 2 pm. After all, some members may need to have proper lunch time which 1.30 pm may not allow. Gladly, although there were new stocks to price tag, we managed to finish everything, including area cleaning before church service. Wow! So proud of team B people!

Morgan did something different from team A. He put the Valentine product on the sofa. I guess Susanna also had the same arrangement in mind.

Hmm, honestly, I don’t mind buying that big bear if only ….  (can guess?Smile with tongue out)

220120111254 220120111259 220120111260

Pastor Phil is in town!! It was a great session with him! We placed some other Valentine products at the tanker.

Morgan shared with us some tips to improve ourselves before moving to Suntec. We are Expo SAT B team!

S  = Strong. Be strong physically, mentally, and spiritually.

A = Available. Let’s avail ourselves to serve whenever there is an opportunity.

T = Trustworthy. Let’s carry out whatever words which we have  said.

B = Best. Be the best we can be in every area of life.
