The Gospel of Jesus Christ
Written by Conrade Yap

And this was his message: “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.”  (Mark 1:7)

 

The Gospel of Jesus Christ


Last Sunday, Pastor John reminded us about how the gospel of Jesus contrasted sharply with that of the Roman Empire at that time. We were then encouraged to think about how the gospel contrasted with our present world. Why did Mark introduce the gospel in such a way? How did the early disciples receive the text? Mark laid the groundwork to show the early believers that the gospel stood in contrast to a world that was increasingly hostile to all things Christ.


For a non-believer then, one would have wondered what difference it would make: The Gospel of Christ versus the prevailing notions of human power and Roman might. For a believer, one would be asking: When would the kingdom come and when would it be done on earth as it is in heaven? For contemporary believers like you and me, how would this passage affect us? Pastor John then went on to remind us that many believers often “gloss over” such an important introductory statement. Imagination and patience are key when it comes to reading Scripture. How then do we begin well?

Message from Pastor John Tsang

THIS is what the kingdom of God is like ….


I want to offer warm greetings to the brothers and sisters of Lord’s Peace Chapel.   This past weekend, we had the privilege of having Dr. Rod Wilson, president of Regent College, expound for us a simple and familiar parable (Mark 6:26-29) with depth, spiritual insight, and clarity.  I believe Dr. Wilson offered us a very timely vision for kingdom work as we begin a new chapter here at LPC.    What I was particularly struck by was how Dr. Wilson presented the mysterious surprising way of God’s kingdom versus the way of the kingdom of the world.   The kingdom of the world depends on technique, proven strategies, good marketing based on sociological and psychological behaviours, and sometimes manipulation but THIS is what the kingdom of God is like … the kingdom of God takes time, patience, faith, prayer, anticipation, and the work of the Spirit.  I look forward to working out all the implications of this in the garden that we call LPC.  God has placed us together as a church and in particular, at the junction of West Vancouver, South Vancouver, and Richmond for a purpose.  There is a kind of crop or harvest that God wants to grow, let us prayerfully discern the kind of seeds we need to scatter in the days ahead!

Taking a Spiritual "Selfie"

Subject: Taking a Spiritual “Selfie”

 

One of the cultural happenings of today is the popularity of doing “selfies.” Since the introduction of smartphones that come with dual cameras, people have been posting on their social media profiles, pictures of themselves using the front facing camera. All that is needed is to hold the phone-camera with our arms, aim the focus at ourselves, do a smile, and snap. Selfie created. Easy. While the back camera is used to capture images in our surroundings, the front camera is used for our FaceTime, video-conferencing, Skype, or whatever telecommunications apps we have. Even the media has been calling 2013 the year of the selfie, riding on how Obama, the Pope, and other famous personalities have been doing selfies as well. Maybe, as we prepare to say goodbye to 2013, and to welcome in 2014, we can make use of the dual-camera as a way to look back and to look forward.
