In Christ

Who are the wise & spiritual?  Paul taught the church in Corinth God's truth to deflate their pride of being wise & spiritual.  He highlighted their errors of using worldly wisdom in their evaluation of their leaders.  The church is God's field. God's building & God's Temple, God's spirit dwelled in them thus they must live their live reflecting Christ in their life individual & collectively as God's church. Pastor Joe Heng preaches.

Light from Asia 02: Is a Christian a leader or a servant? A conversation with Pastor Luck Yong and missionary Mark  

Pastor Luck Yong and missionary Mark discuss Christian leadership at the ARPC missions roundtable. What is a Christian leader?  Someone who tries to influence people towards God’s purposes. Servanthood is not pleasing people but leading people to do what God wants them to do.  

A leader puts together the jigsaw puzzle of the body of Christ to build them up. One of the privileges of leadership is being stretched. Christian leaders submit to God. Example: David submitted to King Saul and trusted God. The challenge of giving feedback to leaders. You grow as a leader by growing in your present circumstances. Example: Moses said God would make a way.

Is There Real Hope?

Israel had many evil kings and Manasseh the one who broke the camel's back. He dashed all hope for Israel to walk right with God again. In God's Sovereignty, God prepared Josiah 300 years before he was born. He was a good king but it came too late to turn God's anger away.  Why God did not send Josiah earlier? What hope do we have that God will keep His promise of an eternal king as exile is just round the corner. Pastor Joe Heng preaches from 2 Kings 21-23.
