Today's Message

As St Hilda’s slips quietly into our 86th Anniversary, we thank and praise You for Your faithful love and watchfulness. We thank You for the smooth appointment of Rt Revd Titus Chung as the 10th Bishop of Singapore in October, even as we weather the storm of a severe pandemic. We pray, LORD, for Your continued guidance and generous favours as St Hilda’s strides confidently in Your care towards its 100th anniversary. In Jesus’s name. 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!

Learning Fruitfulness from the Old Testament

1 Nov 2020

There are many passages in the New Testament to learn about being fruitful for God.

What does being fruitful for God mean?

One of these verses is John 15:5 – “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

What about in the Old Testament (OT)? Jesus had not yet incarnated as human and died on the cross for us. So, what does being spiritually fruitful or productive mean in OT times? An examination of Deuteronomy 8 can reveal much.

Reading the passage carefully, we will note there appears to be three key operational words:

  • Remember – verses 2 and 18
  • Forget – as in don’t forget – verses 11, 14, and 19
  • Keep – as in ‘observe’- verses 1 and 6

Remember
The Israelites were to “remember”, that the LORD, their God, had led them out of Egypt, where they were slaves, and then through the terrible wilderness for 40 years.

They witnessed many miracles under life and death circumstances and situations.
Part of God’s purpose in the 40 years of wilderness was to humble their hearts that God might know if the Israelites were loyal to Him as Lord and Saviour.

Forget
Forget is the opposite of remember. Why does God emphasize “forget” three times in the passage.

It is because not remembering would lead not only to forgetfulness, but there is a more pernicious effect.
