    Help Needed! We are a group of church workers who have established a small village church and kindergarten in the Burmese/Thai border area in an area called 3 Pagoda Pass. The villagers are of Karen minority. The village has about a thousand people. The people are very poor. The village has no electricity and the village well runs dry for about 3 months during the dry season. They are in need of even basic necessities like clothing,food, soaps, Burmese language books,fuel,etc. If anyone has anything to donate or can direct us to organisations that can contribute please drop me an email.
    Thank you

    The call to worship

    Expressions Let us take a fresh look at worship. In many traditional churches, worship is just a part of their 'programme' for their traditions. However, we realise that worship is beginning to come out as part of the church to the core of the church. The heart of the church should be worship.

    Many have mentioned that the heart of the church should be the great commission, in other words, evangelism and missions. However, the greatest commandmant for us is not the go and make disciples, but to love the Lord our God with all our hearts, soul, mind and strength. It was only before the Lord Jesus went back to heaven that He called the church for the great commission. Jesus had meant for us to love God and do the works of God (the great commission).

    Christians need to find the balance between loving God and serving God. We must never put service to God before loving Him. If we do that, our service to Him will be a shallow one, without deep love and compassion. However, if we put our love for God first before our service to Him, He will cause us to abound even further, in fruits of the Spirit and in our labour.

    God loves you!

    The call of revival

    Expressions God promised the outpouring of His Spirit in the last days. That means to say that, God's Spirit will be more evident in the last days. We will see more and more people, prophesying, sharing their vision, performing healing and miracles etc. When we see these things happening more and more, we can say that the Lord is coming soon and that His work is being increased so that more people will know Him and that His church will be ready for His coming.

    Revival is the manifestation of God's Spirit to bring His people back to Him again and to cause us to be on fire for Him once again. God is not satisfied by our half-heartedness towards Him and people, neither is He satisfied with our lukewarmness. We may think we are spiritual but God wants to bring us to the fullness of His Spirit: The place of power and spiritual revival. Only when we are full of God's Spirit and power, can we then manifest the fullness of His Presence and glory. God wants us to be more like Him.

    Remember Stephen who was just a person serving the tables in the book of Acts? The Word of God tells us that Stephen, who was neither an apostle or leader in the house of God, performed great signs and wonders among God's people. He was full of faith and power (Acts 6 : 8).

    Let us be reminded that God wants ALL of His children to be in the state of spiritual revival and power. However, revival does not start from having the power, but from a broken and contrite heart.

    Jesus loves you!

    Finding the right church

    Expressions Last year, when I was praying to God for a church to settle down, He gave me the peace for a particular church. I went there and felt I fitted just nice in that church. I was at where God wants me to be. I was at where God wants me to serve Him.

    1. Not my will be done - Many at times we serve God by doing our own will. In other words, we are actually serving ourselves, we are making a ministry or future by ourselves. We hardly stepped into knowing and doing God's perfect Will for us. To know God's perfect Will for us, we can't find it in the bible, we have to find it from God Himself. Praying, fasting and seeking God for life's direction.

    2. But God didn't say no! - Many of us have entered into God's permissive will and not knowing it. When we fail to seek God for direction, we will enter into God's permissive will. When we repeated allow this to happen, it is the beginning of our backslidden condition. Our conscience will gradually be sealed to do our own will.

    3. Love what God loves, hate what God hates - It is a sin to rejoice in evil and to rejoice at another's failure or mistake. We must allow God to break us and mourn our hearts so that we will love what He loves and hate what He hates. We need to repent of every desires that are not of God.

    4. Waiting - Waiting on God is very tiring and most of the time discouraging. However, when God's timing has come to perfection for us, His Word spoken to us when we are waiting for Him will definitely be established by Him.

    Let us be patient and follow God's leading.

    Love

    The new wine and the new wineskin
    Wednesday, 15 February 2006 @ 02:37 PM SGT

    Expressions 'Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.'
    Matt. 9 : 17

    The abovementioned verse were spoken by our Lord Jesus Himself. He was answering the disciples of John in regards to their question posted to Jesus. He was using the abovementioned verse to tell them the difference between the pharisees, John's disciples and His disciples. Over here, Jesus described His disciples as the new wineskin and the new wine as the Spirit of God.

    We know that the Pharisees and John's disciples were of the 'older generation' when Jesus came by. Therefore, John the Baptist asked, 'Are You the One, or do we wait for another?' Certainly John's ministry was accomplished when Jesus started His ministry. The old wineskin cannot contain the new wine. Neither can the Pharisees and John's disciples who were caught up with rules and regulations comprehend Jesus's teaching and actions. For John's disciples asked Jesus why they and the Pharisees fasted often but His disciples don't. Certainly, they blindly followed their beliefs.

    In this last days, I believe the Lord has His 'new wineskin' and He will pour out His 'new wine' into His new wineskin. The new wineskin containing the new wine will accomplish God's new purposes and moves.

    Relating it to our present time, the 'new wine' is the new outpouring of His Spirit, a fresh and new anointing. Remember Jesus said the He will pour out His Spirit in the those days and those days will also be days of the outpouring of His Spirit.
    (Joel 2 : 28)

    While God's 'new wine' needs new wineskins to contain it, I believe a fresh new generation will be set apart by God for this outpouring. If we are willing, we can be the one.

    Jesus loves you!

    He must increase, and I must decrease.

    Contributed by: Benyamin

    Expressions Ministry to many are a specific calling given by God. People tend to run their church or ministry like a business of their own. The 'I am in control' mentality has surged into many of our hearts and minds. Therefore, leaders tend to do things on their own without God's Presence or direction. They did things, their way.

    John the Baptist, upon seeing Jesus made the abovementioned statement. He said, 'He must increase and I must decrease.' John's attitude was not one of safe-guarding his own ministry. He did not feel threatened when Jesus came after Him. He submitted himself to someone who is greater than himself.

    We need to have the same attitude like John the Baptist in order to work together. When God starts to raise someone who is better than us, we should not feel threatened or jealous about it. Instead, we ought to help the brother or sister in Christ to fulfill his or her role in the Body of Christ.

    Our ministry is not our own. We ought to submit ourselves to the Lord in regards to our ministry. When God told Abraham to sacrifice his son Issac, Abraham instantly obeyed. Abraham did not say, 'God, you cannot do this, for he is my son.' We also ought to follow Abraham's example of faith and obedience, to even allow God to intervene and lead us in every aspects of our influence and control.

    Jesus loves you!
