3/27/2022 You Are the Light of the World ~Rev. Bernie Chung

I was driving on the Interstate freeway one night last week. I was so far from any town or city that the surrounding area was pitch black. Just imagine for some reason that I was driving without headlights. This means the safest thing to do would be to pull over and stop driving. Electric lights were only invented in the early 19th century, so it was unsafe to travel at night before that time. People at that time must use a lantern to illuminate their path to enable them to walk at night even though their vision would still be limited.


The psalmist says: “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path” (Psalms 119:105 NIV). We are living in an age of rebellion, wickedness, and darkness. We need God’s word to prompt and guide us in our life journey, thus traveling in the right direction without stumbling. God’s word indeed is like lantern to the feet and “headlight” to the road especially in the hours of darkness.


Brothers, sisters, and friends, please think for a moment. When we find ourselves lost in life, who can really help us find the right direction? When our spiritual life has lost its vitality, do we believe that the word of God is the light before our feet? When we are stranded in the wilderness far from the city lights, aren’t we concern about the dangers hidden in the dark? When the Lord Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount, the listeners from the rural communities were made aware of the danger of darkness in the world. They themselves had to become the shinning beacons to help others to find their sense of direction in our Lord, similar to the bright landmark of a glowing city in the

distance would guide a traveler.


Jesus calls his followers to be the light of the world and the shining city on the mountain. Matthew 5:14 says, "You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” There is another fact that we should remember: in an increasingly dark age, our light will become brighter in contrast. May God keep and help us, 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
