Remember the poor

R

For God, who was at work in Peter as an apostle to the circumcised, was also at work in me as an apostle to the Gentiles.  James, Cephas and John, those esteemed as pillars, gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship when they recognized the grace given to me. They agreed that we should go to the Gentiles, and they to the circumcised.  All they asked was that we should continue...

Blood Pressure, Reassurance and Kingdom Living

B

My blood pressure has been high for the past 2-3 months.  It is up at 150/100.  That’s hypertension level 1.  Ever since I came back from Cambodia, I made a huge change in my diet and start exercising again.  I went to a Pharmacy last night to check my blood pressure.  It is the same.  I, for one, am not happy about this. I cut down as much sodium as...

Go….

G

Hanging out with R on the street….reading Jackie Pullinger and her accounts of sharing the gospel in Walled City… … I can still remember that night when I was out on the street in a cold Canadian winter night. I was at Nathan Philip Square. The howling wind made every pedestrian walked faster. It was quiet, even for downtown. No one wanted to stop and talk.  Everyone is...

Five Hundred Dollars

F

Starcraft 2 is a computer game that came out earlier this week.  If you are into computer gaming and real time strategy, this is by far one of the most exciting news for a long time.  People are lining up over night, pre-order to get a hold of this game. I really like the original.  In highschool, I will play it all the time.  Even after so many years, I still play Starcraft...

Unity in Christ: Beyond race and nationality

U

Before Jesus was taken up to Heaven, He told the disciples the following: But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8) The verse is an introduction for the book of Acts. The apostles shared Jesus in Jerusalem…then they went off to Judea and Samaria….then...

Dignity

D

“Why are you giving this to me in this place? Can’t you see there are people I know around here?” – R replied as we are standing in an underground food court. My friend was holding a sleeping bag that was for R. He was offended. A good lesson on dignity. No one enjoys being a charity case. Nor do anyone wants to look down upon. We pulled a chair over and chatted with R. He...

Lunch

L

How do you know if you are a Christian? My friend asked me over lunch a while ago. I didn’t have an answer. I simply told him that you know you are a Christian when you know. I thought about that. Not quite the answer I liked. Today, over pho, we talked about being a Christian and what it meant to follow Christ. I pulled passages from Acts 2 when Peter told the crowd to repent and baptize...

Intentional spending

I

Today is Thanksgiving in Canada. I went on a ride. It was rather breezy and I put on my winter gears to keep me warm. Because of the holiday, the roads were empty. It was a cyclist heaven. I weave in and out of the streets of Mississauga which normally were packed with traffic. Instead of the stress of making sure there is cars coming at me. I was at ease. I had a few things on my mind. The...

Share the Good News!

S

When it’s all said and done..more is said. That was my response to a friend a while ago over the topic of evangelism and outreach in our local church. We study the passage to death (Matthew 28:18-20). We have events to fire up people to go out and share the Good News. We have group activities, sharing, games to talk about evangelism, Great Commission. Yet all these effort, the proclaiming...
