How Are They Identified?…

Holy Saturday – 11 Apr 2020

A HOLY WEEK JOURNEY IN ADVERSITY TOWARDS RESILIENCE HOLY WEEK READING-REFLECTION PLAN 11th April 2020, Holy Saturday: John 19:38-42 Today in Lent is known as Holy Saturday. The darkness in the tomb was a mysterious darkness and through the night of Saturday would give way to a new dawn. But Holy Saturday is the 40th day of Lent and closes the period of Lent. So, what has happened to you after 40 days of self-examination, repentance and reading/listening to the…

Incomparable Integrity – 10 Apr 2020

A HOLY WEEK JOURNEY IN ADVERSITY TOWARDS RESILIENCE HOLY WEEK READING-REFLECTION PLAN 10th April 2020, Good Friday: Mark 15:1-41, Luke 23:13—49    Incomparable Integrity What is so good about Good Friday? Nothing could be so horrendous than to hear Jesus’ cry of dereliction. Only Matthew and Mark recorded it in their Gospels. You need to hear it afresh. I need to hear it afresh; “My God, my God, why have You forsaken Me?” This cry is one of seven phrases…

The Last Supper – 9 Apr 2020

A HOLY WEEK JOURNEY IN ADVERSITY TOWARDS RESILIENCE HOLY WEEK READING-REFLECTION PLAN 9th April 2020, Maundy Thursday: Luke 22:19-20    The Last Supper As I think of the last supper which Jesus ate with His disciples, I can’t help but remember Leonardo Da Vinci’s picture portrayal of the Last Supper – The iconic long table covered in tapestry with images of the disciples together with Jesus seated along the length of the table. In my younger days, there was a…

Prayer Of Relinquishment – 8 Apr 2020

A HOLY WEEK JOURNEY IN ADVERSITY TOWARDS RESILIENCE HOLY WEEK READING-REFLECTION PLAN 8th April 2020, Wednesday: Luke 22:39-46    Prayer Of Relinquishment In the school of Gethsemane, we learn the Prayer of Relinquishment. In the starkness of the scene, gaze in wonder at the solitary figure etched against the gnarled olive trees. The bloodlike sweat falling onto the ground. The human longing: “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me”. The final relinquishment; “Not My will, but Yours…

O How He Loves You And Me – 7 Apr 2020

A HOLY WEEK JOURNEY IN ADVERSITY TOWARDS RESILIENCE HOLY WEEK READING-REFLECTION PLAN 7th April 2020, Tuesday: John 17:22-26    O How He Loves You And Me Begin by prayerfully reading the whole of John 17. As Jesus concludes His prayer, perhaps these last few verses before His ordeal reveal what’s foremost on His heart? First, implicit throughout Jesus’ prayers is His deference to the Father, and this spirit of honour is evident as He closes His prayer. All things have…

Prayer Of Tears – 6 Apr 2020

A HOLY WEEK JOURNEY IN ADVERSITY TOWARDS RESILIENCE HOLY WEEK READING-REFLECTION PLAN 6th April 2020, Monday: Luke 19:37-44    Prayer Of Tears Luke gives a broader perspective on Jesus as He was approaching Jerusalem – already coming down the Mount of Olives. The multitudes of disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice. The sound must have been thunderous with appreciation. But when Jesus drew near and saw the city, He wept. Have you seen a grown…

Hosanna To A Different Tune – 5 Apr 2020

A HOLY WEEK JOURNEY IN ADVERSITY TOWARDS RESILIENCE HOLY WEEK READING-REFLECTION PLAN 5th April 2020, Palm Sunday: Matthew 21    Hosanna To A Different Tune Palm Sunday sets the tone for us entering into the week as a journey, participating as if you are one of those first disciples. You join the procession as you see Jesus enter Jerusalem on a donkey. Crowds flocked to see Jesus riding what was actually a young colt that had never been ridden before.…

Love your Neighbour

Rev Anthony Lee All of us know the great commandments: love God and love your neighbour as yourself. I suppose there is no better time than this Covid-19 season to express our love for our neighbours by staying away from people (whether at work, in school, at church, or even for a simple meal) when we feel unwell, even remotely unwell. Note what the commandment says, “Love your neighbour as yourself.” Would you want to catch Covid-19 from someone else? Clearly,…

In the Face of Death

A Word from our Pastor Death can be cruel but can also be a great wake up call to examine if we have lived our lives well. Watch the video to see what living in light of eternity can teach us. Lent is the season we are made to confront our mortality, and all the more so with Covid-19 looming over all our heads. As for our church, more acutely than ever, we are confronted with the fragility of life…

The Great Good God can Accomplish

by Pastor Anthony Lee Never underestimate what great good God can accomplish through terrible trouble. Joseph thought his life ended when he was delivered into the pit. In the end, he became his family’s deliverer from the pits of death. That journey led Joseph to declare, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives” (Gen 50:20 NIV). When persecution came against the early church, the…

Arise, Shine

“, ” The church is in the spotlight. As of 19 Feb 2020, there are 84 cases of Covid-19 in Singapore (46 under observation, 4 in critical condition, and 34 recovered and discharged – thank God!), out of which at least one-third are linked to churches. Without going into practical and theological reasons why churches are badly affected, we have to recognize that churches are meant to shine in the first place – for good reasons, of course. Jesus said,…

Not Fear, but Trust

A Word from our Pastor Not Fear, but Trust – by Pastor Anthony Lee The news these two weeks have been replete with churches (and even pastors!) being infected with the novel Coronavirus (now named Covid-19). In times like these, it is very easy to fall prey to our fears and lose sight of who our God is. I am reminded of a passage in Daniel 3, where Daniel’s three friends were faced with the threat of a blazing furnace…

Assurance Of Answered Prayer

BY Lim kok yong Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete. John 16:24 What do grandparents talk about? Grandchildren. I am a grandfather of one and am no different. My grandson is a blessing and an answered prayer from God. He is three and a half years old. However, this gift is not what I want to talk about. In 2015, my daughter-in-law conceived after…

God’s Goodness

BY Lim Siew Choo Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will help you; I will strengthen you. I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10 For many years, my prayers have always included, “God, have mercy on me. Forgive me all my sins. When it’s time to go home to you, Lord, just pluck me off from this earth. Spare me, oh Lord any kind…

Finding Anchors, Roots And Beacons Through Serving – AV Ministry at Hub

BY Wesley Teo I found my way into AMKMC in 2012 and was welcomed into a community of wholeheartedness, openness and warmth. It did not take long for me to feel that I had a place in this house of the Lord. I was grateful to have been accepted by friends in the church; and it was because of this gratitude that I felt a need to extend myself to do more for the good of the church. Upon encouragement…
