My tuition student in church passed me this cake.
He thanked me for being a blessing to him. I thanked him for the cupcake too.
Well, a tutor’s satisfaction!

A lot of testimony on how God has blessed us in the past 25 years.
Many tears were shared as different ones sharing their testimony.

Lunch (Connexion) 28, July, 2014

Finally!! Managed to catch up with my team 2 mates yesterday on public holiday!
Haven’t had a good chat with them for very long as we at times only bumped into each other in church.
We met up at Kungfu Paradise at Bugis+ and had lunch there.

Pastor Kong’s Sermon 19, July, 2014

What is the Great Commission?

Mark 16:15
We need to creatively engage the marketplace. Once we are inside the marketplace, we need to preach the Gospel.

Acts 17:16-34
Athens was the leading city of culture. Apostle Paul spent time preaching in the synagogue and marketplace.
He was then invited to preach at Areopagus

1 Cor 9:22-23
Apostle Paul used the culture to evangelize. Bishop Dionysius transformed the arts and entertainment for Gospel.

2 Cor 5:14-15
Love of Christ compels us to carry out mission.
1.) we are sent on a mission to engage culture.
2.) we are sent on a mission to preach the Gospel.
3.) we are sent on a mission to live for Jesus

How far do we go into the world?

John 17:18-19
This mission requires us to be like Jesus. We are in the world but not of the world.
4 possibilities of being “in the world” and “of the world’’.

1.) Alienation
The church is against culture.
Jer 29:5
The people of God were in Babylon, an evil and sophisticated city. Yet, God told them not to withdraw.

2.) Extraction
The church builds subculture.
Jer 29:7
Yet, God told them to assimilate with the culture.
John 1:14
Lord Jesus went to the neighborhood.

3.) Accommodation
The church is just like culture.
Lord Jesus befriended with sinners yet He didn’t compromise.
Jer 29:8
Don’t embrace whatever bad things the culture teaches.

4.) Transformation
Holy counterculture
While we are physically there, we are morally different.
Holiness is the mark of the kingdom.
Galatians 5:19-21
These are common things yet Christians must avoid them.
We need to be deeply aware of what God says and what the world says.

Little Kid’s Behavior

Little kids are cute and adorable.
However, there are so many things they need to learn.
As adults, we should be on guard at all times.
We need to protect them from danger.
However, at the same time, we need to prevent them from putting others in danger.

Alertness is the key.

A little kid was sleeping with his grandmother.
While she was sleeping, he woke up. He then grabbed a glass container.
What happened next?
He threw the glass container and it hit her forehead.

An autistic child was initially quiet.
Beside him was his little baby brother.
All of sudden, he stretched his hand and hit his baby brother’s eye.
The baby brother cried and the mother immediately rushed into the room.

Alertness.
Very essential. Important.

Saturday Service 19, July, 2014

Yoooz, the church did something unusual last Saturday!
They turned off the light in the hall.
As we were singing “God is fighting for us pushing through the darkness”, many of us lifted up our smart phones and used the flash light function.

Well, pre candle light service? Smile with tongue out
Indeed, in the midst of this challenging time for church, God’s light still shines for us.

Then my celebrated… a member’s birthday!!
