Walking with God

An interesting definition of  “walking with God” from today’s devotional series.
It means “conversant with God”. The context was about Noah.
Maybe Noah spent considerable time with God in his prayer.
Maybe he simply talked to God in his mind while doing his work.
I shall imitate him: keep talking to God.

Photo of the Day: Yondaime Hokage Labcoat

Fourth Hokage_bb 270120123555 270120123556

Had been planning to decorate this plain lab coat for quite some time.
However, due to work here and there, I could only carry out the plan a few days ago.
And finally, mission was accomplished!
Whenever I am wearing this, I feel a surge of chakra flowing into me!
What’s next? Akatsuki lab coat, perhaps?

Sermon Review XXII: Becoming a Valiant Man

220120123533

Sexual integrity in a sex crazy world.
Dr. Allan Meyer had several heart breaking encounters with a number of men of God.
Yet, in the midst of all ministry they were doing for God, one by one they fell away from the Lord as they gave in to temptation.
Hence, Dr. Meyer shared the importance of sexual discipleship for man.

Acts 15:28-29. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
The apostles instructed the new believers to live in sexual integrity.
If we live in sexual immorality, we are not doing well and we are not obeying God’s will.

Males’ issue of sexual integrity is possibly more problematic than that of women. Some possible reasons for it:
1.) Male brain wiring. This in turn influences skills males are better at than females. When it comes to sex, males are optically stimulated. This sexual excitement is really difficult to handle.
2.) Testosterone engine. This hormone helps man develop muscles but at the same time it makes man more aggressive. Hence, every man needs a good role model. When it comes to sex, testosterone is the hormone of sexual libido. In God’s design, sex functions like a glue which holds the couple together. If it is used outside God’s design, it can act like a dynamite which blows the couple apart. Sexual drive in men is pretty much relentless.
3.) The influence of highly sexualized and eroticized environment. The influence of pornography is rampant in society. Even Christian man struggles with sexual integrity.

Based on statistics, men reach puberty age at younger age while they get married at even later age. This increases the period of “waiting”.
With increasing availability of pornography, men first encounter it at even younger age too.
The bad news is, the earlier men encounter, the greater the sexual distortion will be.

There are three areas in a sexual discipleship for men to handle:
1.) Fantasy.
2.) Pornography. Men who are frequently immersed in junk sex will not appreciate his own wife.
3.) Masturbation.

In conclusion:
1.) It is normal for a man to find managing his sexuality a challenge.
2.) Men need to deeply examine the status of sexuality and acknowledge distortion.
3.) It is possible for men to re-discover a sanctified sexuality.

The “Ewe Lamb” principle: A man’s duty is to protect a woman.

A very good sermon. You can purchase a copy in Attributes: http://attributes.com.sg/becoming-a-valiant-man-dvd.html

FB Status of the Day: Blessed are the Merciful

Blessed are the merciful,
for they shall obtain mercy

– Matt 5:7-

What we sow is what we reap.
If we sow mercy, we will reap mercy too.
I was about to prepare to face the consequence of my mistake.
Yet, in the end the consequence was canceled.
Was it because I had shown mercy to others? Well, only God knows.
Thank You, my God, I did not have to face the penalty.
It’s now time to keep sowing mercy to others as a symbol of gratitude.

Pastor Kong’s Sermon 21, January, 2012

A sermon last Saturday to welcome Chinese New Year.
For that occasion, Pastor Kong preached about loving family.

What is family? Simply speaking, it is “Father And Mother, I Love You”.
The LORD clearly instructs us to honor our parents. If we do not do so, our kids will not honor us. Sowing is reaping, after all.
As we embrace the new year season and enjoy reunion meal, what should we do to show our love?

F = Forgiveness. Real forgiveness does not keep past record.
A = Affection. Physical expression of love is essential
M = Mindfulness. We do our best for the interest of others.
I = Integrity. People can depend on my words.
L = Loyalty. Be devoted to the welfare of family.
Y = Yieldedness. Flexibility even in the midst of argument.

A very good sermon.
Do listen to the online service if you miss it, ok?
