5/9/2021 What Great Lengths ~Rev. Benjamin Chung

Many of us are familiar with the story of Moses. His names means, “one who is drawn out”, as we know that this is what happened to him in the Nile river. After being placed in the river by his mother, Moses’s sister, Miriam, watched his basket from a distance. But, it didn’t cross my mind until now that Moses’s father isn’t mentioned after verse 1. It appears that all the deception (after all, she defied the king of Egypt’s instructions) in order to conceal their child, was planned and executed through his mother, Jochebed. Take a look!


“The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months. 3 When she could hide him no longer, she took for him a basket made of bulrushes and daubed it with bitumen and pitch. She put the child in it and placed it among the reeds by the river bank” (Exodus 2:2-3 ESV).


What great lengths Jochebed took! She hid him for 3 months, then made a basket by hand to protect him in, before finally placing Moses and the basket that contained him in the river, with the express hope that he would somehow make it out alive. And alive he was, in the end! A miraculous introduction to a miraculous life story.


This is a great example of the extent to which a mother will go for her children. To very much the same extent, but in the exact opposite way, this is the depth of the love the Heavenly Father has for us. For He sacrificed the life of His Son to save us instead. Romans 5:8 says, “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”. Thank you moms for your love. And thank you Heavenly Father, for your love, too!

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
