THE LIBERATING TRUTH OF GIVING

by Choe Swee See

“…while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom 5.8);
“Freely you have received, freely give” (Matt 10.8);
“For by grace you have been saved through faith…” (Eph 2.4-9).

I first caught the giving heart of Father God in the way my earthly father gave. People usually receive presents for their birthdays. Not my […]

ADVENTURES ON THE FIELD

by Hilda Solomon

Walking with God has brought me on so many adventures; I’m going to share a few that happened
recently:

Crossing fear
Last year, I was in Cambodia and followed Hope Centre’s staff to the villages. Hope Centre is a
women’s outreach founded by Steve Hyde & Noit. One village that we were visiting was cut off […]

BUILD IT WITH CARE

by Sam Tan

As part of the church building project, I had the opportunity to be involved in the planning and execution of certain areas. One of my responsibilities was to ensure that we had telecommunications running through the building- especially the Internet! As I got more involved, I began to understand what it means to “build rightly”.

My […]

CHRISTIAN VALUES IN THE MARKETPLACE

by Caryna Koh

“If we don’t identify and articulate Christian values, we will likely osmotically adopt the values of others.”

So, what are the Christian values we consider important, as we minister in the marketplace?

Spirituality

Secular humanism, which embraces human reasoning and rejects God, is fundamentally materialistic. It substitutes “man” in place of “God”. “Me” as the center of […]

GET HUNGRY FOR THE WORD

by Simon Kang

Imagine the perfect nasi lemak. Aside from the minor variations, most of us would describe the perfect nasi lemak as having these components: aromatic coconut milk rice, spicy sweet and savoury sambal, a perfectly cooked hard-boiled egg, crunchy salty ikan bilis, roasted peanuts, and fresh thinly sliced cucumber.

Now imagine if you only ever got to eat […]

MINISTRY EXCELLENCE

by Kenneth Koh

We don’t need to be told that when we serve God in our respective ministries, we are to give it
our all. We all know we serve a great and awesome God who deserves our very best, even our
very lives, for He gave His up for our salvation.

But what does “giving our all” […]

LIVING OUT THE GOSPEL

by Janelle Khoo

I once heard a pastor say, “Another person may preach the gospel better than me but he is not going to preach a better gospel”. You can present the gospel in many ways. Some creatively, some literally, but one can never preach a better gospel for there is only one gospel. The gospel […]

DESIGNED TO DESIRE

by Joshua Tong

The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to himself. Only in God will he find the truth and happiness he never stops searching for – Catechism of the Catholic Church

For mankind, sin came in […]

PRAY LIKE IT MATTERS

by Lei Wah 

Jesus’ life and ministry hinges on prayer and a total dependence on His Heavenly Father.
At every vital point of His life, He prayed: at His baptism (Luke 3:21-22), when the crowds
pressed in (Luke 5:15-16) and before choosing His 12 disciples (Luke 6:11-13). He was
praying when He revealed Himself as the Messiah (Luke […]

WE WALK BY FAITH

by Chua See Lian

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)

This is the promise of God and the word of the Lord for all of us to hold on to as […]
