Loving Your VIP Enemies

Lord Jesus taught us to love our enemies.
Well, we may not have enemies as in enemies of war or in gang fight.
However, there are VIP people around whom we need to love too.
Who are these VIP?

Very Irritating
           Inconsiderate
           Intimidating
           Immature
           Irresponsible Person

Maybe they speak, think, act, write and request/demand  like a tyrant.
However, Lord Jesus told us to love them.
He still loves those who crucified Him, after all.

Let wisdom from God guide us so we know how to respond to these VIP people.

Pastor Kong’s Sermon 24, March, 2012

Luke 15:11-32
Both sons were equally lost:
the younger son, who considered his father to be a hindrance to his fun and pleasure,
the older son, who considered his father to be a slave driver, someone hard to please.
Both had no true relationship with their father.

Lord Jesus, on the other hand, showed true relationship with God the Father.
He often prayed and withdrew to be alone with God.
He had only 3.5 years to finish all His assignment, yet never once He forgot to spend time with the Father.
”Abba, Daddy,” that’s how He prayed to God.

One of the five languages is quality time.
Nowadays, time is the most valuable commodity.
Money can be regained but time can never be regained.
Loving God means we spend time with God, breathing together with Him.

Are we willing to set aside some time to be alone with Him, our Heavenly Daddy?

Keep Believing

A note to self:
Keep believing in the LORD.
Keep trying,
but most importantly,
Keep crying out to Him.

Must think of solution.

Sin Lies at The Door

“… sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”
-Genesis 4:7-

Our sinful nature lies at the door.
It has a desire to overtake us.
Yet, God says we should rule over it.

Sometimes the toughest battle is not battle against Satan.
Sometimes, it is the battle against ourselves, our sinful nature.
Yet, God says it is possible to rule over this nature.

Temptation creates a phantasm, an illusion that bad thing is sweet and harmless.
Yet, once the victim gives in, it leaves the victim guilty and miserable.
Be careful with temptation. Be very careful.
Let’s shut the door of opportunity so we won’t fall for it, shall we?

————————————————————————————————–
In the past, I imagined having this eye in order to fend of temptation.

Mangekyo Sharingan-3

Maybe I should use it again in the present??

Party Time!!

Not really party.
As I am writing this, my labmates and I are having fun time.
It is now Friday evening and our supervisor has left.
Trust me, we all feel stressed whenever he comes into the lab to check our progress.
But now, we take things really easy.
WG and CW are playing Counter Strike.
ST is playing some chess on his PC.
XY is… I don’t know what he is busy with.
Me am busy with getting data and listening to PS soundtrack.
Party time!!

Pastor Bill Johnson’s Sermon 18, March, 2012

Introduction.
Matt 10:8
God’s will for us is to heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers and cast out demons.
Regardless of our situation and our occupation, we should carry out God’s will.
Yes, miracle is still for today, not only for early church since in Matt 28, Lord Jesus instructed the disciples to teach others how to perform these miracles.
It sounds impossible but the entire Christianity life is indeed impossible.
However, with God it is possible.

Main message.
John 15:2-3.
God prunes the good branch by His Word, not by punishment.
How did Lord Jesus prune His disciples?

Luke 9:1-3, 47
Lord Jesus gave them power to do miracles.
Due to all their success, they started to argue who the greatest was among them.
Lord Jesus did not rebuke them for wanting to be great. Lord Jesus only corrected their definition of greatness (first pruning).

Luke 9:49-50
They complained to Lord Jesus they someone else not in the group casting out demon in His name.
Lord Jesus did not rebuke their loyalty. Instead, He only corrected their definition of loyalty (second pruning).

Luke 9:54-55
James and John offered to Lord Jesus to burn down the city in His name.
This time round Lord Jesus rebukes them for their unforgiving attitude (third pruning).

In all these three instances, Lord Jesus did not punish the disciples at all.
He simply spoke to them.
Grace is the environment in which all things in the heart will come to the surface so God can address the bad parts.

Let’s keep in love with God’s Word, shall we?
