Doing the works of the Lord and being the works of the Lord


This morning I was reading the autobiography of George Mueller.  One of the early lessons in his walk with the Lord is that he would rely on the Holy Spirit to guide him on what to preach.  He reasoned that since he didn’t know the need of the congregation but the Lord knew the hearts of every men and women in the congregation, he would solely rely on him. The evening service I...

Stomach, Telugu and Seeking the Spirit


Bro, are you at je? (JE = Jurong East)  This is a MRT (Subway) stop in the west of Singapore.   I wondering what it would be like.  As I stood there, I prayed a bit to seek the Spirit.   I am reminded of the first time I went out to visit the poor in downtown Toronto in early 2008.   What it would be like? Would I shared elegantly? What should I say? I was getting the...

Produce Fruits in Keeping with Repentence


Last night it was my girlfriend’s b-day. As we sit by the beach, enjoying the stars, the quietness, the rolling waves and each other, we talked about many things. As we often discussed about our relationship, how do we learn to love one another, love God and help each other to love God, I mentioned the importance of not bringing a bag of sins into our relationship.  For a guy (also for...



There’s a time when it must walk among the branches, looking over the height, over its surrounding.  It must flap its wings.  For a moment thinking whether they will hold itself in the air.  There might be a sense of fear, excitement and above all, unknown. How will flight taste like? I am not sure if birds think as human do.  Maybe it is part of their gene and wiring...

Going back to the beginning….


I remember I once read that a Christian as he/she matures, it is not that he/she gain more new knowledge or wisdom.  Rather, it is the continue renewal and getting the thirst to know and to seek Jesus. A few weeks ago, I wrote an email to a close friend that I lost the passion to serve the Lord. Perhaps this was a bit too strong of words. I can see how my skills at Overseas Missionary...

Remember the poor


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...

God’s Will for whose life now?


This post is a thinking and a reflection…. For the past few months, a few brothers and sisters, sometimes during praying times and sometimes during fellowship, will share they like to know what’s God’s Will for their lives. After doing daily devotions from Oswald Chamber’s My Utmost for His Highest, it dawn on me that Oswald will often reflect that the very circumstance...

All in


Today, I overheard a conversation between two coworkers…we are having a volleyball team to play in a league to raise money for a hospital.  My coworker asked the other coworker if he is going to play in it. He told her that for him, he either go extreme or doesn’t go at all.  Then he said..’..like Cliff.  You know when you race, you have to set a high goal.’...

A fine evening


You can tell when the summer is over by the quietness at the port. There ain’t as many kids running around or the laughters of family over a BBQ. There is a calmness in the air, fortelling the turning of the weather. In a matter of a few weeks, the trees will be bared and this port will be devoid of anyone. Dark clouds had been covering the city for much of the day. Sprinkling here and...

Sunday Morning Reflection


Note: I notice I say ‘you know’ and ehh a lot.  😀 I am also using a NASB bible. In this blog, I mostly use NIV translation.  At least the river scene is nice! The sermon I was reflecting is from Tim Keller -> ;[4 min 30 sec into the sermon] If you stand praying and holding anything against anyone, forgive him.  Right there.  That’s what this...
