3/20/2022 Without Compromise ~Deaconess Michelle Tam

Have you ever done something that you knew was wrong but you did it anyway because it was an easier or more popular choice? If you have, were there any consequences? It may not seem like a big deal at the time but compromises have a way of gaining traction in our lives when it goes unchecked. Most of us, regardless of age, have felt the sting of

consequences from even small compromises in our lives. In turn, we also learn valuable lessons from those moments when we compromise. God’s grace is always enough but there are still consequences to our actions. And unfortunately, some consequences can follow you for the rest of your lives.


Not all compromises are bad. We can definitely “agree to disagree” or “give in” when those things are over opinions and preferences. And sometimes compromises are even necessary and good. What we need to remember is that when it involves giving up God’s Truth then we should not compromise. Adam and Eve were the first compromisers. They chose to believe the words of someone other than God. When Adam ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, he deliberately chose to disobey God. The consequence of his action resulted in death…death for all of us (Romans 5:12 NIV). God demonstrated His mercy and love for Adam and Eve by shedding the blood of innocent animals to cover their sin and nakedness. God didn’t stop there; He made a way for the rest of us to be reconciled with Him through Christ. God’s plan, established before the foundation of the world, made provision for sin by means of the sacrifice of His Son. God made a way for us by redeeming us through the blood of the Lamb who was slain for our sins. Jesus lovingly laid down His life so that we could approach freely a God who cannot coexist with sin. As we draw near to Easter, use this time to reflect on the choices and compromises you’ve made. Humbly go before God to confess and repent and ask for forgiveness. The next time you are tempted to doubt the teachings in Scripture because of another’s opinion, keep in mind that God’s Word is perfect (Psalm 18:30). He expects us to follow His commands and trust what He says – without compromise.


Philippians 1:27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel.


Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.


1 Peter 1:18-19 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.

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
