True Prosperity


Speaker: Rev Alvin Ngo
18 Feb, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 
Many Chinese New Year greetings and wishes contain the words, "wealth" or "money" or "riches".  There is an innate desire that we are prosperous and blessed so that we can enjoy the good life.
 

Jesus promises, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." (John 10:10, KJV)  God wants us to enjoy the super abundant life. But is it the same as material prosperity?  Is money all-important or as some say, "almighty"? Come and find out what true prosperity is as we look into God's perspective on the abundant life.

Ridiculous Faith

"Then He told them many things in parables, saying: 'A farmer went out to sow his seed ...'" - Matthew 13:3.  

 

This passage begins a series of parables or stories that Jesus taught to the people. The Parable of the Sower is one of the most well-known stories. It is also the common experience of the audience that Jesus spoke to.  In the first of the Faith Commander series, we want to see how one tiny seed can result in a huge harvest.

 

"Redonkulous faith can be as tiny as a mustard seed, but it's as powerful as the mighty wind. It trusts that God is our defender, deliverer, and provider." Faith Commander, p17. The word, "redonkulous" is defined as "significantly more absurd than ridiculous" from the Urban Dictionary. Go with us on a wonderful adventure to discover the gem of the parables.  The story of the Sower is more than a lesson on agriculture.  It has the power to transform you to become a fruitful person with a great impact in your world.

Radical Forgiveness


Speaker: Rev Bob Lum
3 Mar, Sat, 5.30 pm, BTCCL6.Audi2
4 Mar, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 

"I know what you've been up to. We need to talk." These words would send a shudder down the spine of a person especially if he has done wrong.  The truth is: we have all done wrong and would continue to do wrong.

 

The second part of the 5-part series deals with FORGIVENESS.  The Parable of TWO DEBTORS in Matthew 18:23-34 is Jesus' response to the question, "How many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me?" We understand the point of the story but we find it impossible to practise it in real life.

 

Let's understand what forgiveness is and what it is not. You will also learn practical steps on how you can become a forgiving person and be set free from anger, bitterness and hate.

Ravenous Prayer


Speaker: Rev Anthony Chua
10 Mar, Sat, 5.30 pm, BTCCL6.Audi2
11 Mar, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 

"Why not stop right now and tell God what's on your heart? Be shameless, audacious, radical.'" - Faith Commander, p58

 

We know that prayer is the wonderful privilege of every Christian for we are all God's children.  In Luke 11, Jesus taught His disciples what is known as "the Lord's Prayer". Then He followed up with the outrageous story of a man who knocked on the door of his friend at midnight.  Is He teaching us to be inconsiderate to our friends? What does Jesus want us to learn from the parable of the friend in need?

 

Part 3 in the series opens up your eyes to see God in a fresh way.  You will uncover precious promises that will transform your faith and your prayers.  You will learn to pray more and rely on God instead of trying to live life all by yourself.

Real Obedience


Speaker: Rev Bob Lum
17 Mar, Sat, 5.30 pm, BTCCL6.Audi2
18 Mar, Sun, 9.30 am, BTCCL5.Audi1
 

The Parable of the Two Sons in Matthew 21 is a reflection of believers today.  Like the second son, we say "Yes" readily but our actions betray us.  We do not fulfill what we say we would do.  How does God view this kind of behavior? 

 

Part 4 takes a close look at this parable. We want to discover the honest truth about ourselves - what causes us to fail to follow up our words with actions. Then we want to understand the reasons for obedience. 

 

"There are some very good reasons for obeying God. One is that when we obey God, He often amazes us by the good things He can do through us." Faith Commander, p64.  Let us go beyond reading the parable, go beyond understanding the truth of the parable. Let's us do what Jesus teaches us in the parable!

Rowdy Kindness


Speaker: Rev Alvin Ngo

The Parable of the Good Samaritan is one of the most famous and universally known parables. Its impact is so great that the term "Good Samaritan" has become a generic term to describe a compassionate person who will assist people, including strangers, in unselfish and sacrificial way.

 

When Jesus told the story, He was opening up the mind of an expert in the Jewish law. The parable was Christ's answer to the question, "And who is my neighbor?" Luke 10:29.

 

So who is my neighbor? and what am I supposed to do? - we will study this parable with an open heart to God.  Let it become a personal lesson to examine ourselves honestly.  We need to understand clearly why we should be kind like the Samaritan.  You will also learn practical steps to demonstrate kindness in daily life.

 

This is the last part of the 5-part series. However it is not the end of our lifelong learning and growth.  "Give yourself and your family time. Our family didn't become what it is today overnight. It started with a tiny seed, a seed of redonkulous faith. In the right soil, that seed can produce a crop that will take your breath away." Faith Commander, p82
