Chew Eng Han was not in the state of mind of conspiring anything.
How could one think of any conspiracy when he himself underwent much challenges?
In fact, none of the accused ever thought he/she was conspiring anything illegal.
All the best, Eng Han!

Glad to see Chew Eng Han testifying at the court.
He really did well in explaining the evidence and refuting the prosecution’s points.
All the best, Chew Eng Han!

Pastor Kong’s Sermon 24, January, 2015

Acts 17:28, John 10:10
Life.
Love. That’s the central theme of the Bible. Faith works through love.
Gal 5:6
Invest. How do we invest in lives in things which really matter? There must be eternal dividends.
Forgive. Without forgiveness, Christianity is a lie.
Enjoy. The joy of the Lord is our strength. Let’s enjoy the journey.
Nothing happens without God’s permission. When God permits it, it is for our good.

Love.
Make love our aim. 1 Cor 14:1
Beyond getting the blessing, we should be expert in love.
1 John 4:19
The only reason we can love is because He loved first. We love others just like He loves us.
How does God love us?

1. Jesus accepts us.
We live in the world of survival of the fittest, smartest and loveliest. People tend to reject us when we do not perform well. However, Lord Jesus accepts us for who we are regardless of our imperfection. Even when we let Him go, He will hold on to us.
Jesus Lord then commands us to accept others. We can accept without approving sinful lifestyle.
John 8:11.
Rm 15:7
We choose love. Let’s accept people who irritate us.

2. Jesus values us.
How much are we worth to God?
Our self worth is more important than net worth. We are worth much more than the angels. Lord Jesus died for humans, not angels.
How do we value something? It depends on who the Creator is.
Eph 2:10.
Workmanship. We are God’s masterpiece. 1 Pet. 1:18-19.
We are so valuable that Lord Jesus died for us. We then should treat others with care as they are valuable to God. We need to speak with tactfulness as we need to maintain relationship.
Col 4:6

3. Jesus believes in us
To Jesus, we are new creations, we are righteous, we are more than conquerors.
John 14:12
Jesus believes we can do greater works.
We should also believe in others because Jesus believes in us.
1 Cor13:7
We can believe in others by encouraging others. We should think the best of people.

Well, personal stuffs may come in the court.
Whatever it is, it is definitely more important to address the charges.
Indeed, it does not seem there was any sham investment as Chew Eng Han had managed the bonds to the best of his ability.

Indeed, I believe Chew Eng Han has done his best in ensuring there was no sham investment.
He himself has vast experience in handling fund and he did not gain anything from all the bonds, apart from perhaps a little management fee (http://www.citynews.sg/2014/07/chc-trial-chew-challenged-lams-evidence-that-he-had-offered-to-be-chcs-fund-manager/).
It is of no interest to see who gets blamed for what.
It is more important to see six of them vindicated.

 

Dim Sum Dollies (Connexion) 25, January, 2015

Had a wonderful dinner time with Connexion friends!
Dim Sum Dollies. It was the only outing event we had in the month of January.
Hadn’t met them for quite some time.
So, it was good to catch up with old friends.

We all shared these fantastic foods! I was soooo full.
Plenty exchange of info too on credit cards. Yup, money is an important topic of conversation.
Last weekend Pastor Kong preached about love.
One of the five love languages, according to Gary Chapman, is quality time.
Hence, we show our love to each other by spending time with them over dinner.
We try our best to understand their what each other goes through and perhaps to offer some help too.

Celebrated their birthday! Happy birthday, Tun Chung and Winnie!
May God grant you your birthday wishes!

Our lovely people!
Do look forward to the news of our next outing event, yeah?

Cg sermon 22, January, 2015

Ps 65:9-11
God wants to bless our year. He delights in the prosperity of His servant.
3 John 2.
Our soul has to prosper. The moment we prosper inwardly, we will prosper outwardly too. If we decay inwardly, we will decay outwardly too.

Heb 4:1
Be resolute to hear God’s voice.
Let us fear. Let us be careful not to come short of the promise of God. In the book of Revelation, Lord Jesus said let those who have ears hear. We should hear God’s voice, not just hear what the media says.
One word from God can change our entire life.

2. Heb 4:11
Let us be diligent. Don’t be lazy when it comes to spiritual discipline: Reading the Bible, fast and prayer, coming to church. These are all the ‘boring’ parts of Christianity. Yet, they are important.
Just like natural success requires much diligence, our spiritual success requires spiritual diligence.

3. Heb 4:14
Be resolute in holding the confession. It means homologia. Same word with God’s word.
When we are,depressed, we should not say what the world says. We should say what God says.
When we are unsure, we can confess Psalm 37:23.
Make the words of our mouth agree with God’s word. It is not just chanting, it is said with full of boldness until it gets into us.
We should prophesy life even when the situation is tough
