I was at Open Door tonight. They had a General Meeting. One of the members was talking with the recent change in the grocery store in not providing free plastic bag, they have trouble getting them. At the store, you can now pay five cent for a bag. This is good for the environment. But it makes it tighter when someone is making barely enough to pay rent. One of the touching story is a girl asking...
This is an emergency….
Either I fully believe in this or not.. Either I carry my cross or not… A long long time ago, I counted my cost. Ever since then, I am always overwhelm by the futility of what I can do…..there is nothing I can do but to pray with tears for God to work among my city. For the lost around the world, without even the basic necessity…may we dare to deny ourselves and help bring the...
He has shown all you people what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8 (TNIV) When I heard this verse this morning, I cannot help but have tears in my eyes. In the age where injustice and oppression is all around us, I am rejoice in knowing our Father is a source of justice, love and mercy. When we are called...
To serve or to be served
It seems lately I realize I am more on being served and to serve.
I also think I am quite a critic as well….
Repost: Saving the world…one purchase at a time
Jesus said: by this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.Or was that, if you wear the right gear?
A desire to see God working among the world.
A desire to see heaven coming down.
A desire to see bring fourth justice and free the oppress.
A desire to clothe the naked and to feed the hungry.
A desire to rejoice in the hope of a better World.
….it is this desire that keep us going.
Religion causes wars
As a Christian, there were conversations in which I have to defend what I believe in. Often times, it is focus on attack on religion. Perhaps this is the outset of living in a post modern world. Where people tend to suspect institutions and organizations of all sorts. I remember a while back my friend, an atheist, challenged me making a statement that religion lead to many wars and senseless...
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...
Contest the Good Contest
12Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 13I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, 14that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus...
Share the Good News!
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...
