Possessions Must Not Possess Us

After they had further proclaimed the word of the Lord and testified about Jesus, Peter and John returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel in many Samaritan villages.”  (Acts 8:25)


Subject: Treat Things as Things; Treat People as People


On Sunday, we had our second sermon on the topic of money. Some people may be wondering whether the sermon series is beginning to talk about money matters, or whether the Church herself has a problem with money. Well, the truth is, on the week before, Dr Paul Stevens happened to be coming off a teaching series about money and was delighted to share his thoughts with us. This week, when I reflected on our series of sermons on Acts, the passage on Simon the Sorcerer sprung out and intrigued me. Whether you call it a coincidence or not, I preferred to call it a continuation.

The Barometer of our Relationship with God
Written by Conrade Yap   
Tuesday, 29 October 2013 20:27

Last Sunday, our guest speaker Dr Paul Stevens highlighted this question for us: “Is it true that how we relate to money is a barometer of our relationship with God?” He then went through the problem, the purpose, the potential of money, and finally homing in on an application of what has become a trademark of Stevens: Everyday Spirituality. We need to beware of the pitfalls of money as a power; be focused on the larger purposes of the Kingdom; and to use whatever possessions we have to win relationships for God. I think this pretty much sums up our application: Use whatever God has given us to bless, and bless, and bless others.

Persecution and Godliness
Written by Conrade Yap   
Wednesday, 23 October 2013 08:07

“Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.”  (Acts 8:4)


Subject: Where Persecution Fuels the Spread of the Gospel


Last Sunday, I preached about persecution and the Church. I contrasted between the faith of the Early Church and the Modern Church; the Third World Church and the First World Church. In countless stories from brothers and sisters throughout the world, there seems to be a trend that persecution does not necessarily impede the gospel. In fact, it fuels it. In Acts 8, we read about the “great persecution” which is a systematic program of harassment and oppression upon the early believers in first century Jerusalem. Many were forced to leave their comfortable homes. Many had to leave behind their possessions. Many became strangers in another land. By persecuting the disciples, the Jewish religious leaders thought that they could break down the band of believers. They thought that by stopping them from gathering, they could limit their growth. They were wrong. Instead, they had unwittingly scattered the disciples who themselves “preached the word wherever they went.”
