Pastor Kong’s Sermon 15, January, 2012

Picture3

Did not manage to attend the service last Saturday due to bookstore duty.
Did not manage to attend Sunday service too as I had to do experiment afterwards.
So, here is the snapshot of online sermon outline.

We went through the faith statement of the church.
Pastor Kong went through 17 of them quickly as he wanted to focus on the church strategy:
a.) For the kids, CHC strives to be a fun place, even better than McDonald.
b.) For the youths, CHC gives them opportunity to fully develop talents and CHC mentors them too.
c.) For the prime adults and mid adults, CHC works in small groups system, making it easy to be accountable and to deepen friendship and fellowship. CHC also provides workshops to enhance their life skills.
d.) For the seniors, CHC is the place of care and acceptance.

Did you miss the sermon?
Fear not, the online service is just a click away:

Sermon Review XXI: 1 Samuel (Part 3)

In the first part, Pastor Kong preached about Eli. In the second part, about Saul.
In this third part, it is about David.

Saul’s life represents walk in flesh, David’s life walk in spirit.
Fleshly nature should decrease, God’s nature in use should increase.
Saul was handsome and tall, yet he lost his kingship. God does not see Saul’s appearance. He looks at his heart.

Three qualities essential for kingship:

1.) Faithfulness. God wants us to be found faithful. It is not enough to be called, not enough to be chosen, it is important to be faithful.
– David was faithful to tend to his few sheep.
– David was faithful to care for the weak of the flock.
– David was faithful to protect them.
– David was full of faith as he was facing Goliath.

2.) Wisdom. It is essential for any king.
– David was so wise that Saul was afraid of him. He immersed himself in ancient proverbs.

3.) Righteousness. Any king needs righteousness  beside wisdom. Solomon was wise but lived un-righteously.
– David had a pure heart and moved in holiness. Purity is forged in difficulty.
– Hardship is God’s way of preparing us for kingship.
– David’s heart broke when his wife to be was given to someone else.
– David was in the danger of murder in the hand of Saul.
– David had to escape from Saul’s intent of killing.
– Yet, in the midst of it all, David stayed persevering and kept trusting the LORD.

So, let’s be faithful, wise and enduring in the midst of trial just like David, shall we?

When We Have to Face the Consequence of Our Mistake..

From Genesis 32.

Jacob made a horrible mistake, deliberately.
Instead of trusting in God’s wisdom to bring the Isaac’s blessing upon him, he deceived Esau to sell the birth right.
Furthermore, he deceived Isaac; he told Isaac he was Esau.
As a consequence he had to run away from his family. Esau’s anger burnt hot against him.

One day, he wanted to return to his family. Yet, he was afraid of Esau.
He still thought Esau would want to kill him.
While he was still at a distance from Esau, he sent him gifts after gifts to order to pacify Esau.
Then, Jacob wrestled with God Himself.

In the end, God did a huge miracle as Jacob was approaching Esau.
Esau was not angry. Esau even ran and embraced Jacob. Both of them wept tear of reconciliation.

We may do mistake, accidentally or deliberately.
Yet, as long as we turned to God, He will do something about it.
Something good, beautiful and miraculous.
God can use our mistake for something great.
