The COVID-19 crisis has caused not only great fear, but also stirred up no small amount of tension as well. Christians have been labelled socially irresponsible for meeting together, and some have been expressly forbidden by employers or family members from going to church. Some Christians themselves are asking, “Why do we even still want to meet at all?” This situation presents us with a wonderful opportunity to examine how we can respond to the pandemic without panic, as well as adopt precautions without yielding to pressure. That’s why this week we have interrupted our preaching schedule just to bring you this special message by Pastor Tiak.
We are commanded to "love the Lord our God with all our heart, our mind and our strength". However, it is practically impossible to love someone whom we don't know for sure is real, or to show affection to someone whose reliability we doubt. For Christians and non-Christians alike, embracing the reality of God is neither just about solving a philosophical riddle nor having a personal subjective feeling. Rather, it involves a multidimensional quest. Come begin a journey with us to discover if the God of the Bible is truly whom He claims to be, or deserves to be loved as he commanded us to do.
What if you realise that all your asset classes would be rendered utterly worthless in time to come by factors beyond your control? How then can you still ensure that you preserve or even enhance the value of your wealth? What can give you the courage to be contrarian when everyone else is going in the opposite direction? Find out the answers in this message entitled: Enhanced Assets
We are constantly bombarded with advertisements and messages about how money can improve our lives. What we are, however, seldom warned about, are the very real and destructive pitfalls that money can trap us in if we don’t manage it well. That’s why this message deals with a crucial but often overlooked aspect of wealth management.
We all handle our money in ways that we believe would bring us maximum satisfaction. However, most of us seldom stop long enough to question whether our beliefs about money would actually help us to achieve the desired outcome. In this message, we will learn from Jesus’ teaching timeless lessons about wealth which are radically different from what our culture tells us, but which have the potential to give us what we truly desire.
The role of parents is to work themselves out of a job by raising their children to become independent adults. This is a difficult process for both parents and children, and does not always work out well. That’s why, in this message, we will learn about the tensions of relating to our parents as adult children, and how we can manage them so that we can become healthy individuals while still loving our parents.
Mothers are expected to be tender, loving, knowledgeable, capable, hardworking, patient, always cheerful and totally sacrificial. The reality is that many mothers find it difficult to live up to such superhuman expectations. Mothers need all the help that they can get. That’s why this message addresses the common mistakes that mothers should avoid so that they can be happy and effective in what they do.
In the New Testament, the dominant imagery used by God to describe his relationship with us is Father. That in itself speaks volumes about the crucial role fathers play. While those of us who are fathers would never be a perfect father like God, we can make a lasting and positive difference in the lives of our children if we apply the wisdom found in God’s Word for fathers.
Do you feel the uncertainty of life? That things will not happen as promised? Disappointed and discouraged by circumstances that are beyond your control? In a few moment’s time today, we will be learning how God has promised us heavenly blessings through what Jesus has already done, and how the promised Holy Spirit, our seal, the guarantee that God will fulfil what He has promised, to make right every wrong in this world.
Have you ever been blessed to know the ecstasy of winning a lucky draw and redeeming your prize immediately? Perhaps, made sweeter by the fact that your prize has a huge price to it. The Bible tells us there is nothing “lucky” when we were chosen by Christ to be redeemed by His blood. He did so at huge cost to Himself out of a profound, divine love to call us children of God.
Have you ever wished you were born into a rich and famous family? Or hoped that you could marry someone accomplished and influential? The Bible tells us that when we are in Christ, something even more wonderful happens to us: we are adopted by the most powerful being in the universe and we occupy a special place in his house. What does it mean to be a child of God?
