This December season we have the privilege of hearing from guest speakers, Pastor Andrew Yeo, Pastor Lim Lip Yong, Rev. Dr. William Wan as well as our very own Pastor Alywin and Pastor Tiak. Join us and listen in for an exciting word from all our speakers.
Most people, whether religious or not, have the desire to be good. The problem is that our idea of goodness is fuzzy and our approach to goodness unworkable. God alone is truly good and he has revealed to us how we can be good like him. It’s not what you think.
If you are looking for a sign from God, Jesus says that no sign will be given except the sign of Jonah. It is easy to dismiss Jonah as a Sunday School story that we all outgrow, like our belief in Santa Claus. However, this ancient story holds surprises and powerful lessons for you, regardless of whether you are a Christian, a non-Christian, or unsure of what you are.
Discovering who we are and what we are called to do is an important journey in all our lives. When we realise our identities, we will be able to function most effectively in the place where God has called us to.
The more you want to be good, the more likely you are to feel crushed and disappointed
when you sin. And if you keep falling into sin again and again in spite of your best intentions,
you risk becoming disillusioned and giving up altogether.
All those who sincerely try to be good people would be conscious that there is a fierce tug-of-
war between the good and the bad within themselves. The bible tells us that this is a war we
cannot win on our own. In the last message, we saw how God delivers us through Jesus
Christ, so that it becomes possible for us to really be good.
Another new year has dawned, and no doubt all of us have engaged in the same mind game, wishing and persuading ourselves that on the stroke of midnight of 31 December, things would somehow be better going forward.
