The Importance of Both the Inner Spiritual Life and the Outer Life of Ministry and Service – Matt 6:1-24
Written by John Tsang   
Monday, 25 June 2018 12:24


In Matthew chapter 6, we see the following:

6:1-4 – Giving to the Needy

6:5-15 – The Lord’s Prayer

6:16-18 – Fasting

The theme that runs through these sections is to do the right acts of devotion in the right way, namely, not for show but out of your love for the Father, and for the benefit of the other.


Giving to the Needy (6:1-4), almsgiving is

a word often used which includes any kind and good action intended to serve and help others. These acts of helping requires a lot of internal spiritual strength and character. The person often associated with giving and helping to the needy is of course, Mother Teresa of Calcutta. In one course that I took, we looked at the spiritual lives of the saints. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Mother Teresa has a very rich and deep spirituality.  Mother Teresa would began her day with 1.5 hours of prayer before her work. She is an example of someone who nurtured the inner life as she served the needs of others.

What a meaningful Father’s Day celebration! It was beautiful to see Melanie’s testimony and sharing, to hear of her father’s heart to serve the members of this orchestra, and then to see the passion of Professor Yin in his conducting! Many members of the orchestra expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to be a part of our worship yesterday and I want to pass that on to you. It was a real blessing for us at LPC, a blessing to the members of the orchestra, and a meaningful moment for Melanie, Professor Yin and the family.

Then we had the opportunity to dedicate Malcolm to the Lord on Brandon’s first Father’s day, what a delight!



For our sermon time, Jens Zimmermann offered us a way to think about the Sermon on the Mount.


First, Jesus is the Son of God, the firstborn of all creation, the cosmic Christ (Col 1:15). The Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead is in us. For those who have made a profession of faith to follow Christ, our identity rests on the fact that we are sons and daughters of God.

More Hard Teachings of Jesus – Promise Keeping, Retaliation, and Loving Enemies – Matt 5:33-48

In the Old Testament story of the Exodus, which serves as a way for us to understand the Christian life, you will notice that the Law was given to Israel AFTER they were delivered and rescued from Egypt. The Ten Commandments were given not as a prerequisite for salvation but rather as a way to form this group of slaves into the covenant people of God. In the same manner, observing the commands, the re-giving of the Law, and the teaching of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount, has no bearing on salvation. Obedience and observance of Jesus commands is best seen as a way to form us into the image of Christ – a way of discipleship.


Oaths (5:33-37) – the Rabbis developed a complicated system whereby if you swore an oath on the name of God, you were bound but if you swore an oath by ‘Jerusalem’ or ‘heaven’, you were not legally bound. They built in loopholes for vows and oaths. So Jesus simply said, “All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. Stay true to your word, be honest, and live with integrity especially in your business transactions.
