NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS
Brother Alex Ong will bring us a message from the pulpit this morning as our minister is away in Penang for the weekend. Do continue to bring your colleagues, loved ones and friends to worship with us.
SUNDAY ADULT BIBLE CLASS:
Brother Allan Hoo will continue the series on “A Study of the Nature and Work of the Holy Spirit” (11) on Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit in the Adults Bible Class this morning. Food For Thought: “Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is attributing the power of the Holy Spirit to Beelzebub. It is a rejection of Him who bears witness to the Son of God and, therefore, makes it impossible for someone to come to faith. That person will never be forgiven for this because he has cut off the means by which faith can come. Total apostasy is brought about by “falling away” and committing “wilful sin.” In this state a person has “crucified and shamed Christ” and “insulted the Spirit of grace.” Such a hardened heart cannot come to repentance… Those who reject what truth they have will ultimately be blinded and unable to receive any other truth. The vacuum of their soul will breed deception, and that deception will ultimately lead to their damnation. Because the Pharisees did not want to believe Jesus, they deceived themselves into thinking that His miracles were of the devil.” Come join us in our weekly exciting Bible studies!
OUR HONOURED GUESTS:
We welcome our honoured guests: Lai Lee Chin (Debbie’s sister) and our regular visitors who worshipped with us last Sunday. It was good to see Daniel Hoh, Angie and Mun Yee back in our midst. They were away in Ipoh the past few weeks. Come back again!
Please continue to pray for: Bernedette Savitha (Tony George’s niece) – recuperation from ovarian cancer; Wong See Keok, Tan Swee Yoke, Choy Foong’s mother, Bawani’s father, Tan Yoke Ying and sister Thoo – health concerns; Those traveling to Penang this weekend. Please inform the church if you are travelling or have prayer concerns, so that we may know your whereabouts and include you in our weekly prayer list.
There is a legend of a village in Southern Europe that boasted of a church called “The House of Many Lamps.” When it was built in the sixteenth century, the architect provided for no light except for a receptacle at every seat for the placing of a lamp. Each Sunday night, as the people gathered, they would bring their lanterns and slip them into the bracket at their seat. When someone stayed away, his place would be dark; and if very many stayed away, the darkness became greater for the whole. It was the regular presence of each person that lit up the church.
How would you like it if… #Your watch ticked one time and missed the next? #Your heart beat one time and missed the next? #Your child missed every other day at school? #The engine of your car only hit on half its cylinders? Irregularity in any area of life causes problems. It was said about the early Christians, “… they continued steadfastly in the apostle’s doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread and in prayers.” If you are “on and off” in your church attendance, it hurts everybody.
