How to go

H

This is taken from Oswald Chambers’ So I send You & Workmen of God. How to go – Acts 1:8 There is always the danger of starting up false enthusiasm in missionary work. “Oh yes, I will go; where shall I go?” That is like making a false start in a race and having to go back to the starting point. Our Lord’s word go simply means live, and Acts 1:8 describes the...

Dress to Impress

D

I remember when I was younger, when I was still in University. As a guy, 90% the time we think about is how to impress girls. What to wear. What to say. How to act. In fact, my friend and I bought this eBook on how to get the girl of our dreams. It is all about how to act like the alpha male in the room. The book gives every detail from what to say, what to wear, what flowers to get, how to play...

A doormat for someone else

A

It was a few weeks ago when we had lunch after Sunday Service.  One of the brothers were sharing how he felt always cheated at work and always had to do a lot more than everyone else. At one point, I asked the brother about as Christian we should do the right thing and serve. He said, ‘is that what Christian is about? A push over?’ To which I replied, ‘was Jesus a push over...

The Calling…

T

…of Matthew
As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.
Matthew 9:9

Stubborn Disciple(s)

S

Sometimes I think I am the most stubborn disciple of all…. In the gospel of Mark, the disciples are often depicted as … fools… They never get it right.  They never understand what Jesus is saying or doing.  They always say the wrong things.  Jesus spent as much time rebuking them as he did with the Pharisees. Take Mark 8:14-21 for example…  The...

I will follow – Chris Tomlin

I

This passage has been on my mind for the past few days… As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him.  – Mark 1:16-18 Today’s Sunday School, the teacher mentioned...

How do you see your work fitting into faith?

H

A friend asked me where do I see my work and my faith.  How do they interwine?  Here’s my response….. You are asking a loaded question…one that I can spend forever to answer :)…(which I probably will and expect this to be a long email). The biggest lesson I learn from triathlon is the order of things when it comes to serving God.  I learn to let go of the...

Between good and good

B

Just write a quick post before I head out for lunch. I notice that the choices I make as a Christian is not between good and bad. It is not a decision whether to steal or not to steal. In a world of affluence, often it is a subtle difference between good and good. When I was little, I grew up playing paintball and video games.  I still do them on and off. Is it wrong to play paintball or...

To study the Bible…

T

When I first went to church, I had a pastor who taught us how to study the Bible. I remember there were a few Saturdays where our congregation will gathered together and my pastor would give us group exercise. I didn’t give much thought about it. Looking back, I am very thankful and blessed that he instill me and my congregation on loving the Word of God and reading the Scripture in context...

Gospel Living: From program to lifestyle

G

Yesterday before service, I was sharing at praying room that I am trying to train people to be not just good at event planning or doing. But rather to be living the gospel as a lifestyle. I don’t think I say all that as I often rumble and say a few things and miss a few things. My church is having a Christmas Luncheon this Sat. I was wondering if the people that coming to help out, am I...
