Romans 6:13

by Rev Joel Yong

Romans 6:13 reminds us “Give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God.”

There is no partial following of Christ. We either follow Him wholly or not at all. On Stewardship Sunday, let’s lay all we have – our body, our resources, our time, our finances, our talents before God for His use and His Kingdom’s work. Before these were ours, they were His – He gave them to us.

Psalm 119:18

by Rev Joel Yong

Psalm 119:18 says “Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions.”

We are often distracted by many things in life. May we learn to spend time poring over the Word of God on a daily basis. In doing so, may our lives be transformed day by day into His likeness and we grow from strength to strength.

Ecclesiastes 5:10

by Rev Joel Yong

Ecclesiastes 5:10 tells us “Those who love money will never have enough How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness!”

Only God can give a person true happiness. This is because we are beings that are not just physical, but emotional, and spiritual as well. Only our Creator can bring us true fulfillment in life. Come to Him today.

Proverbs 17:17

by Rev Joel Yong

Proverbs 17:17 teaches us “A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born of help in time of need.”

Do we consider ourselves friends of others – just because we are with them in celebratory moments and painful moments? What about being there for our friends – for an eternity? I long to walk into eternity with those I call my friends. Consider how to bring a friend, a step closer to Christ today!

Exodus 20:6

by Rev Joel Yong

Exodus 20:6 says “But I lavish my love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands.”

The choice to obey or rebel against God is ours. In accordance with this freewill, each choice has its consequence. To those who choose to obey, the consequence is a life that flourishes under God’s blessings – even their descendants will reap the blessings of the choice they’ve made.

Psalm 19:7

by Rev Joel Yong

Psalm 19:7 reminds us “The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul.”

God’s way, if obeyed, brings life, not restriction. By obeying God, we become set free. Imagine using a DVD player the wrong way for months before discovering the manual! Now with the manual, we know how it’s meant to function and enjoy it so much more! God’s Way liberates our lives!
