22.8.09

Dear friends,

During last week’s youth meeting, we had Pastor Leow spend some time with us to share on “the WORLD and YOU”. First, we started of with an exciting and encouraging time of testimony followed by a beautiful time of praise and worship.

Pastor started his sharing by quoting that the ultimate key to true success is a firm foundation. Though we live in a democratic world, the church is theocratic.
There are 4, the Law of God, the Mind, Sin, and the Holy Spirit. We often realize that the decisions we make are merely to please our selfish desires, our peers, or parents. But we ought to get the world in proper perspective and set our priorities right. Only then can we full-heartedly and willingly please God, and choose to obey the Law of God and the Holy Spirit, the route to true success.

Just like the prisoner who looked out the prison bar and choose to be awed by the beautiful starts instead of the mud, let’s turn our eyes to Him and choose take up our cross and follow Christ!

Till next week, God Bless.
Ps: Looking forward to hearing some great news from Cameron Highlands.

Reflex actions

Also known as our automatic responses to situations, the past Saturday we learned that in times of troubles, needs or difficulties, we need to first pray before all else, just like our reflex actions.

We started our evening first with a fun game, a variation of "dodgeball", played instead with balls of newspaper, and instead of playing in teams, it adopts a "last man standing" rule, where the last person not hit with a ball is the winner. Congratulations to the winner...Sue Ann!!! :)

Afterwards, we went into a time of praise and worship, then into our teaching session by Jinho. When people throw something at you, your hands naturally go up to block it. When wind blows into your eyes, you naturally blink to protect your eyes. These are all natural reactions to different stimulus.

It written in James 5:13, "If anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms." It says here that if you are suffering, there is no simpler answer than to just pray, because God will definitely answer the prayers of a faithful man, as it is written in James 5:15, and in James 5:16, it says that the prayers of a righteous man is effective and powerful.

So we should pray first of all whenever we are faced with troubles, as it is the first step to finding the solution to our problems. Have a blessed week people~

are you DRUNK enough?

How can our spiritual lives be related with the life of a drunkard? Or rather, what can we learn from their lifestyle that can enhance our personal spiritual walk in Christ?

Well, this was the topic that our dear Sharon Marie shared last weekend. We started of with a time of fellowship and games followed by praise and worship. This is a few things I would like to share on this interesting topic that she shared last weekend.

Being “drunk” means to be under the influence of something, which most commonly is associated with alcohol. Similarly, our lives ought to always be led by the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Firstly, a drunkard is never alone. They’re always with their “kaki botol” buddies when they get drunk and are having a jolly good time. We ought to be just like that, always with our brothers and sisters in Christ, worshiping and fellowshipping together.

To a drunkard, everything is beautiful. Therefore, he looks at everything and he sees the beauty in it. We all should take off our sunglasses of criticism and look at everyone as being specially made by God. We’d also take pleasure in serving in the church.

A drunkard also experiences hangover. It is the after effects of the reducing alcohol in their system. Similarly, we have to constantly replenish ourselves as we tend to drift away from the His ways. That’s why we have to always read his word and have an on-going relationship with Him.

So let us all remember to be always spiritually inclined to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
God bless you and hope you all have a blessed week ahead :)


ps: Thank you dear sharon marie for sharing with us! Truly, we were blessed..
love, the SALT kl
