Today's Message

The sky has never been so quiet, LORD. The city on the edge of the sea is silent. And this weekend beach in the east is strangely soundless. Have You brought us to this calm that we may be stilled to listen to Your voice? What is it, LORD, that You want us to hear? That our eyes are no longer fixed on You? That we have strayed away from You? That in our busyness we have set You aside? That in the noise of life we have stopped to touch the pulse of Your Word and feel Your love for us? Alas, alas, a weariness lies heavy on us, LORD! Take away our pride, our arrogance, our ambitions, our hates, our worries, our fears, our anxieties, our entanglements, LORD! Free us from all these, LORD, and restore to us the fire of our first Love! We pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, Your Son and our Saviour. Amen!

Failure Is Not The End

I am sure failure in what we have done and our relationships have always got us down. No two ways about it. We would have been disappointed. We would have been angered. We would have been exasperated. We would have been depressed. We would have felt let down by people who we thought could be trusted and we loved. Sometimes, we would have felt like giving up. But, looking back, and mostly after having “fought” back or got back on our feet when we could, we would have always got up wiser and stronger. By the grace of God.

We will always be in broken situations. No two ways about it. But I have also come to learn that the Spirit in us is what will revive and re-energise us. If we call on It with all our heart! Praise God that He is always here for us. He is the potter. We are His clay. He is continuously forming us. We should be grateful we are always in His hands. In His hands! How wonderful that is! How marvellous!

CORVID 19 and the CROSS

9 Apr 2020

It is amazing how  micro-organisms have created such a macro impact.

Since January 2020 much has been said about this pandemic. People from various backgrounds have expressed their findings and views. These include politicians, socio-economists, medical and religious groups.

As we are in the midst of Lent and approaching Good Friday and the Day of Resurrection, let us look at the pandemic through the lenses of the cross. Let me take you back to Calvary and to the foot of the cross. We witness contrasting behaviours converging on the cross.

Selfishness and Selflessness
This is another season where we observe behaviour motivated by self-existence, self-centredness, self-preservation and survival of the fittest. It expresses itself in panic buying, hoarding, violation of guidelines regarding community responsibility and other  forms of unhelpful behaviour. Even politicians and nations start finger-pointing at one another.

What do we see about Christ on the cross? Amidst the excruciating physical  pain and curses, He blesses the people. He asks His Father to forgive them  “Father forgive them for they know not they are doing.- Luke 23:34. He takes our sin upon Himself creating a spiritual gulf with Him and the Father, “My God , My God why has thou forsaken me.” – Luke 27:46.

He promises eternal life to the thief next him “Truly I say to you  today you will be with Me in Paradise. – Luke 23 :43. Bearing the sins of the world, forgiveness and pronouncing eternal life are the apex of selfless giving. Are not these enough to transform our hearts?
