Word Of The Month

Psalm 106 & 107 begin with

 

“Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever.”

 

The two psalms tell the history of the Israelites from the time when they were slaves in Egypt. They were exhorted to give thanks to God for specific acts that He had done for the nation. His love, patience, mercy and power delivered them again and again!  Psalm 107 ends with these words, “Those who are wise will take all this to heart; they will see in our history the faithful love of the LORD.” v43

 

Like them, we should see in our 50-year history the faithful love of the LORD. The recent LOV3 drama-musical portrays God’s work in some of our   members. I believe that there are many more true stories or testimonies that we can share. God has done wonderful things in our lives!  Our story may not be dramatic. Yet they are real - I encourage you to tell them to your children and send them to the church. Don’t keep quiet. The Bible teaches us to boast in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:31

 

We also thank God for His hand upon Singapore., a relatively young nation of 52 years,  He has blessed us beyond our size and resources. We see the faithful love of the LORD in our tiny red dot. It is important that we acknowledge God’s hand and continue to pray for our nation and our leaders.

 

In addition to giving thanks to the LORD, we must commit to be faithful to Him and to follow Him. God’s blessings are intentional and purposeful. “When someone has been given much, much will be required in return.” Luke 12:48  Church, let us enjoy the blessings of God & share them with people around us - the poor, the hurting, the lost, the depressed, etc. Let’s reach out & bless them!
