Our sin must be extremely horrible….


Our sin must be extremely horrible. Nothing reveals the gravity of sin like the cross. For ultimately what sent Christ there was neither the greed of Judas, nor the envy of the priests, not the vacillating cowardice of Pilate, but our own greed, envy, cowardice, and other sins, and Christ’s resolve in love and mercy to bear their judgment and so put them away. It is impossible for us to face...

I wish….


Sometimes I wish my church is like the other church…. Sometimes I wish my fellowship is like the other fellowship…. How come my Sunday Service is not as energizing as the other one…. Or how come my pastor doesn’t preach like ______ (insert big names John Piper, Tim Keller, Francis Chan etc.)… I think there is legit reasons to focus on self needs.  At the same...

Signs of Spiritual Growth


– who preacher help me grow the most? – I have no one to connect with in this fellowship, I am outta here. – who can I talk to when I need help? – who can pray for me and listen to my needs? – I can only worship with these songs – that sermon is so boring, what a waste of time – God is not here.  This is too hard.  I am not ready. God is gone...

Parting is such sweet sorrow


Not that there are many things I cherished.  But for a triathlete, it is definitely the bike. I am always a big fan of riding.  When I was little with my BMX, to the first time my parents got me a 18 speed bike, to my first road bike, to my first tri bike.  There’s some special of going on the road, pedaling down for hours on end. I can still remember the days when I use to...

Mercy and Grace


Of all the lessons and reflection on God’s Mercy and Grace, I still think I still live in a life of expectations, performance and works. I remember a prof use to say that looking back, if he’s going to error, he will error in grace. As a do-er (I am a high D on DISC), the frustration that comes often is relate to doing.  This is not righteous anger or holy discontent.  In a...

Brokeness Complete


Worship with this song during service…so good. Unashamed – Starfield I have not much To offer You Not near what You deserve But still I come Because Your cross Has placed in me my worth Oh, Christ my King Of sympathy Whose wounds secure my peace Your grace extends To call me friend Your mercy sets me free And I know I’m weak I know I’m unworthy To call upon Your name But...

Three Days Grace – Lost In You


Heard this song on the radio recently….quite catchy… Always knew that you’d come back to get me And you always knew that it wouldn’t be easy To go back to the start to see where it all began Or end up at the bottom to watch how it all ends You tried to lie and say I was everything I remember when I said “I’m nothing without you” I’m nothing without...

Mentality between racing for fun and racing to win


Definitely not related to Christian faith but I like to jot this down for my own sake. As I look back over the races I done, triathlons, marathons, road races, some of them I did it for fun and some I do to win (or at least a personal best). Racing for fun is simple, you go in and have fun.  For me, I don’t care too much about my time. Usually this takes in a form of helping another...



I love to be busy. I love crossing over the items on the many to do list. Sometimes at work, I get in a mode where I just blast one email after another.  Just get it done. Though, lately, perhaps I am too busy to even jot down what’s been going on in my life. The busier I gets, the more I want to get stuff done and it leads to even busier. It is time to slow down and seek Him. All the...
