Wisdom from Above
Written by Conrade Yap   
Monday, 07 October 2013 00:00

Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”  (Acts 5:38-39)

Subject: Wisdom from Above will Last

As we journey through the Book of Acts, one of the remarkable things we discover is that the Holy Spirit works not only in the lives of believers but also non-believers. We see how the Holy Spirit came upon the people at Pentecost (Acts 2). We see how the Holy Spirit gathered the Early Church as a caring and sharing community (Acts 2:42-47; Acts 4:32-37). We see how the gospel was preached by the disciples. We even read about the judgment by the Holy Spirit on the deception of Ananias and Sapphira (Acts 5:1-11). Today, we read about the way the Spirit moved a Pharisee to rescue Peter and the apostles.

When God moves, God can use anyone, even non-Christians. Gamaliel is a well respected Pharisee in the first century. Known for his moderation and careful words, even the influential group of Sadducees at the Sanhedrin will listen to his counsel. Note that the Pharisees and the Sadducees cannot get along theologically. Yet, for this one instance, Gamaliel’s wise words reminded all of them that wisdom that originates from humans will not last. Wisdom that is from God will last. How true that is.

Responding to Adversity

Subject: Responding to Adversity

Adversity is a part of life. Some we handle well, others not so well. When adversity happens, it is easy to say things like: “Don’t worry, it’ll get better,” or “You can do it buddy!” or “When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.” Unfortunately, these become mere words when adversity hits hard.

There is a story about a Kenyan missionary who encountered a little girl in an impoverished village. Despite her frail and malnourished body, she exhibited a beautiful smile, that hid a tragic early childhood. Her father died soon after she was born. Her mother died when she was three. Her next of kin, an aunt, was so sick that instead of the aunt taking care of her, she ends up taking care of her aunt!  At such a young tender age, this girl experiences life as a lonely orphan, a poor peasant, as well as a young caregiver! When asked about the name of her hometown, she said: “Miseri.” For the locals, this word means “Egypt” in the Swahili language. For the rest of the world, the word bears close resemblance to the English word, “misery.”

Being One Body

Subject: Being One Body

I remember during my varsity days how my Christian fellowship group loves to come together to worship. We pray. We sing our prayers. We read the Bible together. We put aside denominational differences and unite our praises to God. It does not matter whether one comes from high church Anglican backgrounds, orderly Methodists, Baptists, Congregationalists or Charismatics. All are free to lift up their hands and praise out loud. Whatever styles and formats, personal preferences are secondary. Worshipping God is primary. Singing has a special way of bringing people together. We sing not just with voices, but also with our body swaying to the music of worship. When singing about a common love, we join our hands and sing songs about what it means to be one body. One such song goes like this:

“We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord (2x)

And we pray that all unity may one day be restored.

And they'll know we are Christians by our love, by our Love,

Yes they'll know we are Christians by our love. “
