2/27/2022 Will Not Do Right? ~Rev. Bernie Chung

Where have our children learned to say, “That's not fair!” In reality, they have learned a lot from adults, especially from their parents as they develop their thinking and character.

Imperceptibly, children imitate adult habits and behaviors. So when children say “That's not fair!”, they probably are copying our response to a particular situation. When they hear “that’s not fair!” from someone else, they may put us in awe by replying “That’s life!”—like grownups.


Life indeed doesn’t seem fair sometimes. Unfortunate things happen to good people, and bad people seem to live good lives. People worthy of praise are often forgotten and ignored, while those without merit get recognition. These types of life contradictions have prompted King Solomon to lament with emotion: “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless!” The things we’ve pursued successfully early in life may yield some degree of satisfaction at first. But after a lifetime seeking things of temporal value, the enjoyment and excitement of yearning have disappeared altogether. Youth, love, career, fame and fortune, etc. are all unreliable, short lived, and fleeting entities. At the end, these pursuits cannot fulfill people's hearts. Life is full of unpredictable variables. “Void begets of void” often is the reality of life.


Genesis 18:25 says, “Far be it from you (God) to do such a thing—to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?” The most important thing in life is to truly know God, The Holy One, and to fear Him. Brothers and sisters, let’s continue to trust God and submit to him, and to do what he has considered the right things. Seek God’s wisdom and reconcile our relationship with him. May we enjoy his presence that is full of peace and joy each day. Amen!

5/21/2023 信心和順服之旅 ~鍾卓權牧師

信心能趨使我們獻身於上帝和祂對我們生命的計劃,是重生之後正常的回應。 主耶穌在升天之前,馬太福音 28:16-20 中記載衪告訴門徒要將福音傳給萬民。 然而,信徒中有不少的人並沒有為完成這個大使命而努力,至少不是熱烈地或者踴躍地去執行這個命令。 是什麼原因阻礙了我們 呢?恐懼很可能是原因之一。 例如,如果傳福音意味著離鄉背井,很可能會擔心新環境與治安的問題,文化上的差異,家人和朋友的反對。 我們也

5/7/2023 一天一步順服神 ~鍾卓權牧師

在我們的生活中,順服神的旨意是否會成爲一種負擔?跟隨神的行動是否是一種冒險? 我們經常認爲遵循神的旨意是爲了避免或是不願承擔後果。而有時,我們還以爲改變自己的計劃去順服神可能也是一種沒有把握的冒險。 將順服神的旨意視爲負擔的原因是因爲我們認爲跟隨主是要付出極大的代價。然而,我們也要知道,遵行上帝的旨意並不是僅僅局限於人生中的重大事件,其實同樣也包括在生活小事上的順服。腓立比書4章6節告訴我們,應當

4/9/2023 復活節之後 ~周錦榮執事

七日的頭一天,天剛亮的時候,婦女來到耶穌墓前,想為祂身體薰香,以表示敬愛,卻發現墓石打開,不見主的身體,守墓的兵丁也不在。主的使者向她們顯現,首次宣告主耶穌己復活,並要她們轉告門徒這消息及往加利利見耶穌,耶穌會在他們以先往加利利。在途中,婦女與主相遇,再次要她們告訴門徒往加利利相見 (太28:5-10)。當年十二歲的耶穌在耶路撒冷過節,遲遲未走,與殿裡教師學習討論(路2:46),但現在卻催速門徒回
