When we do not have vision in work, we may laze around. There are many things which need to be done.

When we do not help the poor, God will not hear us.

The diligent
Proverb 4:23
The diligent cultivate the inner man
Proverb 10:4
There is no substitute for hard work. Diligent people plan their work and work their plan out.
Proverb 22:29

Pastor Bayless Conley’s Sermon 11, July, 2015: At His Feet

Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus.
In every story, Mary was always found at the feet of Jesus
Luke 10:38-42
Mary came to His feet to hear His word. Let’s be fair to Martha. Firstly, Jesus came to Martha’s house. So, she might feel certain responsibility. Secondly, Jesus came with the 12 apostles. It was pretty costly to feed them. Martha didn’t mind. Martha was distracted by much serving. It is good to serve. It is not good to be distracted with much serving. It is good idea to fast from all busyness just to sit at His feet: To let His word change our heart.

John 12:1-8
Mary came to His feet to worship Him through giving.
Phil 4:18
Sacrificial gift is a sweet smelling aroma which please God.
When we give with the right heart, it pleases God. Whatever we pour to Jesus, it is never a waste. When we give extravagantly to God, we should do it with a sense of sacredness. A beautiful chandelier in church, for example, is fitting to glorify God.

John 11:1-17, 32-44
Mary came to His feet with her questions and needs.
Mary was honest with her agony and questions. Mary didn’t run away from God. She ran to Him. There is God’s love and concern behind tragedy.
How should we understand the context?
John 10
The devil stirred up the crowd. The crowd almost murdered Him. He escaped. The devil wanted to get Him again.
Jesus wept because they didn’t believe He cared. When bad things happen to us and we don’t believe God cares, the whole heaven weeps.
Matt 15:30-31
At the feet of Jesus, we find healing.
We come to His feet with all our confusion and questions

Cg sermon 9, July, 2015

The simple, scorner and fool
Proverb 1:22
The simple acknowledges, the scorner doubts, the foolish does something stupid.
Proverb 8:5, 9:4
The life of simple
Naive people who believe in everything or anything. These people lack discernment.
To believe every word of God is faith. To believe every word of man is naivety.
The tragedy is when the simple loves his simplicity.
Three results if the simple rejects the word of God:
– The simple falls easily into sexual temptation (Proverb 7:7-8),
– the simple only learns when they see others paying price for their mistakes (Proverb 19:25),
– simple people walk right into danger (proverb 22:3).
To avoid being simple, always have grip on the word of God.

The scorner think they know everything.
Proverb 21:24
They are proud. They are too quick to judge. Everyone who teaches them is just wasting time.
Proverb 9:7-8, 22:10
It doesn’t mean we don’t help. We simply do not spend much time helping the scorner.

The fools won’t learn from God’s word.
Proverb 1:7
There is no fear of God for fools. God’s word makes us wise.
Proverb 17:24
Fools cannot control their speech.
Proverb 15:2, 10:8
Fools talk a lot.
Fools can’t control their temper
Proverb 12:16
We should always cool down and analyze.
Proverb 26:4-5
If someone is stupid, we should not share in his/her stupidity.
Fools are proud
Proverb 28:26
Fools create strife over petty issues.
Fools bring sorrow to their parents.
Proverb 10:1
Parents should never worry over their grown up kids. Cain, Esau, Jacob’s sons, Samson. They make parents grieved
Fools always squander wealth away.
Proverb 21:20
Fools cannot be trusted with responsibility. Hence, fools cannot earn honor.
Proverb 26:6-9, 11
Fools repeat mistakes like dogs returning to vomit.
Proverb 19:3, Luke 12:20
We will not become fools as long as we submit to word of God.

Pastor Kong’s Sermon 5, July, 2015: The Adulterous Woman

John 8:2-3-6
Lord Jesus was teaching.
The Pharisees came interrupting, dragging a woman with them. They wanted to trap Him.
The Pharisees didn’t believe Lord Jesus to be the Savior: Why would a holy savior eat with sinners?
Lord Jesus wrote on the ground. We do not know what He wrote.

John 8:7
Lord Jesus said, "He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone."
The head priest, the oldest among them, thought he was worthy to cast the first stone.
However, his consciousness convicted him of guilt. The other Pharisees experienced guilt as well.
All of us sin. All of us are guilty.

Who was worthy to cast the stone? Jesus Himself.
He could have picked up stones and thrown to all of us.
The woman searched for love at all the wrong places.
She wanted to be accepted, however, all she received was broken promises.
She was caught in adultery. She was pushed, abused and shamed.
When she saw His face, she was willing to be stoned by Jesus. However, Lord Jesus let her go.
Why did He do it?

Sin has broken the world. Sin has cost God so much.
Jesus let her go because He was on the way to be executed as her Substitute.
His word to her and to us is still the same, "Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more."

Frankfurt 13-20, June, 2015 (17-18 June)

Wednesday morning.
My boss and I first discussed our finding in the first two days of exhibition.
Plenty new ideas as we brainstormed on how to improve quality control and lab procedure.
After done with the discussion, we had our breakfast.

WP_20150617_004WP_20150617_001WP_20150617_002WP_20150617_003

We went to a fish restaurant nearby the hotel.
Their salmon was really fresh. Their mineral water felt so refreshing too!

WP_20150617_008WP_20150617_005WP_20150617_006

We revisited some of the booths we were interested in.
And so, we gained even more new ideas.
My boss was so excited with such a fruitful finding.

We had lunch at the exhibition place. I forgot to take the photos, though Smile with tongue out
Upon returning to the hotel, we had dinner.

Interesting restaurant along the street.
The wine is really good. Wish I could have had more if not for my low alcohol tolerance Smile with tongue out
Another round of fresh salmon too.
But well, we waited for one hour for them to cook the food.

Thursday morning. Breakfast time!

WP_20150618_004WP_20150618_001

Well, it was really bread after bread almost every day.
Not bad. Eating rice all the time can be boring Smile with tongue out

I attended a workshop on fume cupboard and lab design.

Interesting to see this design of lab.
Kinda reminding me of NTU lab too~~

Dinner time!!!

A very classy interior design too!

19062015112951906201511289

The food portion was really huge! My boss and I could not finish it even though we shared it.
I guess the food was more suited for big-sized German people, not me.

1906201511296

Guess what is inside this treasure chest?

190620151131119062015112981906201511299

190620151130019062015113011906201511302

After dinner, we walked around again. Interesting buildings around.
The architect bothered with the detail of the wall. Really artistic.

1906201511304

What is this castle doing at the junction of a busy road?

19062015113061906201511305

Well, it turns out to be a cafe~~~
Our last day of Frankfurt tomorrow. Do look forward to the post!
