Reflections from Summer Conference 2013

Subject: Pastoral Reflections from the Summer Conference 2013

 

Last week, we had more than seventy people who attended the Summer Conference. Though there was a dip in attendance compared to last year, the numbers from Bill and Mirian’s family made up for the shortfall. We all got to celebrate the beautiful 50th Anniversary of our beloved Bill and Mirian Lee. Mirian also joyfully prepared a photographic set of slides to show all of us, their journey of life.

We also had an amazing time with Dr Bruce Waltke as he shared with many of us the Word of God. The book of Judges is not an easy book to preach on. Many of the stories in that book are difficult to read, with many cases of killing, bloodshed, and violence. Gently and capably, Dr Waltke reminded us that sin is not something to be trifled with. The Book of Judges is a very realistic portrayal of how man is his own worst enemy. When man is allowed free rein to do anything he pleases, the result is tragic. When man looks away from God, he will stumble over his own folly. Let me offer four reflections from last week.

For the months of July and August, we will be embarking on a sermon series entitled: "Tough Questions for Christians." Please join us each Sunday as we deal with tough questions such as:

 

  • "What About those who have not heard about the gospel?"
  • Predestination
  • Is the Bible Reliable and True?
  • What if we do not desire God?
  • Why pray when the Holy Spirit is praying for us already?
  • ....

Sola Gratia
Written by Conrade Yap   
Tuesday, 16 July 2013 11:49

How do we describe Christianity? If there is only one word that comes to mind, it is none other than the word "grace." Back during the Protestant Reformation days in the 16th Century, "sola gratia" is one of the five pillars of the Reformation. The other four are the Sola Scriptura (by Scripture alone); the sola fide (by faith alone); the sola Christus (by Christ alone); and sola Deo Gloria (by Glory to God alone).

 

It was the recognition of absolute grace through Rembrandt's painting, that led the Roman Catholic monk, Henri Nouwen to pen his most famous work, "The Return of the Prodigal Son." The parable is a powerful revelation of God's absolute grace. In our performance-based culture, we are used to an-eye-for-an-eye treatment. We practise regularly various forms of I-rub-your-back-you-rub-mine behaviours. Unfortunately, that is most foreign to what Christianity is about. When Christ lived among the people, there was no expecting people to pay him back for miracles and healings performed. Neither were there expectations of payment. The only request was to direct all attention back to God the Father.
