|SEPTEMBER 24TH, 2017 PJ CHURCH OF CHRIST BULLETIN
We thank brother Allan Hoo for his touching sermon on “Will the Son of Man Find Faith on the Earth?” last Sunday. This morning brother Wong Wee Loke will bring forth the sermon on “Answering Life’s Questions”. (I Corinthians 1:1-8). Do bring your loved ones/ friends to worship with us every Sunday.
SUNDAY ADULT BIBLE CLASS:
Brother Wong Wee Loke will teach on the lesson “On Integrity” which was supposed to be last week’s lesson in the series -- “Strengthening Your Grip”. Food for Thought: “In our world, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know that usually brings about a promotion. But in God’s world, it’s what you are, not who you know. It’s what you are in your character. God saw fit, because of integrity in Daniel’s life, to move in the heart of King Darius to plan a promotion. .Notice his extraordinary spirit. The Berkeley Version of the Bible calls it a ‘surpassing spirit.’ (Daniel 6:3). The marks of integrity: 1) An excellent attitude 2) Faithfulness and diligence at work 3) Personal purity of the highest calibre 4) Consistence in his walk with God. You have the scalpel in your hand. Self-examination is now up to you. It is not only a good idea, it’s a biblical imperative, “But let a man examine himself… if we judged ourselves rightly, we should not be judged” (I Corinthians 11:28, 31)”. Please bring your children punctually for the Sunday’s Children/Youth Class to be taught the Bible every week.

“Open wide the windows of our spirits and fill us full of light; open wide the door of our hearts, that we may receive and entertain Thee with all our powers of adoration.” – Christina Rossetti
“The life of faith is continually renewed victory over doubt, a continually renewed grasp of meaning in the midst of meaninglessness.” -- L. Newbigin
“For the power Thou hast given me to lay hold of things unseen: For the strong sense I have that this is not my home: For my restless heart which nothing finite can satisfy: I give Thee thanks, O God. For the invasion of my soul by Thy Holy Spirit: For all human love and goodness that speak to me of Thee: For the fullness of Thy glory outpoured in Jesus Christ: I give Thee thanks, O God. ” – John Baillie
“They that know God will be humble; they that know themselves cannot be proud.” – John Flavel
“We hand folks over to God's mercy, and show none ourselves.” -- George Eliot
“Do not be angry that you cannot make others as you would wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.” --Thomas à Kempis
“Unwillingness to accept God's "way of escape" from temptation frightens me - what a rebel yet resides within.” – Jim Elliot
“I know well that when Christ is nearest, Satan is also busiest.” –Robert Murray M'Cheyne
“The real danger of legalism is that it produces a sense of attainment that short-circuits our call to live the life of Yes through Christ. Self-achievement brings a false sense of assurance that somehow we can live a pure life in our own ability. This attitude ultimately leads us to cut ourselves off from the heart of God and, in turn, to deny our true identity in Christ.” -- David Edwards
