Devotions

In light of the Covid-19 situation, it can be easy for us to lose sight of who our God is. Check out these devotions by Pastor Anthony as he helps us navigate through this Covid-19 maze that we are in.

What is of True Worth

Rev Anthony Lee 1 Samuel 2:12 records one of the most fascinating verses ever. It reads, “Now the sons of Eli were worthless men. They did not know the Lord” (ESV). This verse is fascinating because in just two short sentences, God has completely revolutionized my understanding of how one’s worth is defined. The world sees those who are rich, famous, powerful, or well-educated to be people of worth. In God’s eyes, however, only those who know God are people…

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,…

Trusting in God’s Steadfast Love

by Ms Selina Gunawan 1 Shout for joy in the Lord,     O you righteous!     Praise befits the upright. 2  Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre;     make melody to him with the harp of ten     strings! (Psalm 33) The psalmist reminds us to rejoice in the Lord and to praise Him for all that He has done. Rejoicing in the Lord is also a message that Paul wrote to Philippians church. Despite suffering and persecution, Paul…

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…
