  • The Living Water that Divides

    < Back Previous Next John, Sunday Service The Living Water that Divides John 7:10-20,31,37-38,40-47 Pastor Daniel Gan 18 Feb 2024 00:00 / 36:18 Download Summary, Bible Passages & Outline Summary: This sermon discusses the problem of Jesus' claims of divinity and how it divides people. Two theories about Jesus from the verses are put forth - that he is just a good man or that he is a deceiver or crazy. Both theories are refuted if we look at the extreme claims Jesus made about Himself and the impact of His teachings throughout history. This sermon emphasizes the need for individuals to fully commit to Jesus and let their knowledge of God be shaped by His word, rather than the influence of the world. The sermon concludes by urging us to choose to align ourselves with Jesus or distance ourselves from Him, as it is an all-or-nothing decision. His word is the living water that divides. Bible Passages: Responsive Readings: John 7:10-20,31,37-38,40-47 Outline: Why is it that what Jesus said or did impact us? Jesus' claim to be God, divided people. The following divisive beliefs in people came about with Jesus' claim. v.5: Don’t believe Jesus is Messiah v.11-12: Believe Jesus is a good man or deceiver. v.20: Think Jesus was possessed or mad. v.26, 31, 41: Believe Jesus is Messiah. v.40: Called Jesus the Prophet. v.47: Called Jesus a deceiver. Jesus was constantly assuming this incredible and radical position that He is Christ, that He is God. And Jesus was also constantly making the most radical demands for allegiance. Jesus is more than just a great leader. He’s more than just a good person. In the Bible, you will see: • Jesus is tender without being weak (Matt 11:28-30, Isaiah 42:3). • He’s strong without being harsh (2 Cor 13:4, Psalm 46:1). • He’s humble with no lack of confidence (Philip 2:5-8). • He is holy and yet approachable (Heb 4:15-16, John 1:14). • He is courageous and yet gentle and sensitive (Matt 21:12-13). Meditate on the truth. Allow God's Word to rest on top of your heart. Two takeaways from our relationship with God: (1) All or nothing => Jesus demands absolute re-orientation of your life and total obedience. (2) Shaped by the Word, Hosea 4:1,6 => Your love for Jesus is connected to your knowledge of Him. Previous Next

  • Faithfulness Through Our Circumstances

    Articles - Backlist < Back Faithfulness Through Our Circumstances Mr. Daniel Gan 4 May 2020 How do we continue to trust and obey God, when things get from bad to worse? Joseph was the favourite son of Israel and only 17 years old when he was sold by his brothers to the Midianite traders who sold him in Egypt to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh. And just when it seemed things were getting better as he rose to become the overseer of his master’s house, he was falsely accused by Potiphar’s wife and thrown into prison. Jewish commentators have written that Joseph was imprisoned for at least twelve years and one can only imagine what it was like to be facing the dark nights of the soul, trapped in a foreign land, isolated from family and friends, isolated even from the culture and community that he grew up in. Many would be the nights where Joseph wrestled with hopelessness as he waited upon the Lord...yet day after day, nothing changed as he lay down to sleep on the dank and dark floor of his prison cell. “Was I wrong to trust and obey God in rejecting Potiphar’s wife?” But even as that fleeting thought crossed his mind, he would have remembered all the old stories his father Jacob told him. How God promised his great-grandfather Abraham a child Isaac by barran Sarah in their old age (Gen 17:19). And God fulfilled that promise. How God promised grandma Rebekah that her son Esau, the older would serve Jacob (Gen 25:23). And God fulfilled that promise. And how his father Jacob was caught in Uncle Laban’s deception for twenty long years, and God fulfilled his promises, delivered him and brought him back as a wealthy man (Gen 31:3). And as Joseph remembered these stories, one thing he would have seen was that God honored faith more than anything else. Abraham trusted God’s promise. Isaac trusted God’s promise. Rebekah trusted God’s promise. Jacob trusted God’s promise. And they all saw God’s faithfulness to His covenantal promises to them, despite their own individual weaknesses and circumstances. Being faithful to God, trusting Him and obeying Him sometimes may lead us to a trajectory where our circumstances become worse, not better. We see this in Joseph when obedience led to twelve years of imprisonment. But we can still cling to God’s promises. God fulfills His promises to us! And it’s faith in our faithful God, trusting His future grace that will sustain us in our dark moments. “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations…” Deuteronomy 7:9 Mr. Daniel Gan Previous Next

  • A Relentless Pursuit

    Articles - Backlist < Back A Relentless Pursuit Mr. Ho Zhi Wei 24 December 2019 With less than nine days to 2020, many of us might be reflecting on what we have made of 2019. Whether marked by accomplishment or disappointment, the extent to which we are seen to have progressed in our lives is likely foremost on our minds. This is not surprising, considering how our lives in Singapore are marked by ceaseless competition. In spite of (or perhaps, because of) growing concerns over social inequality, we persist in our striving to stand apart from our peers. This extends from our studies and careers—Singapore’s students and workers are reported to experience high levels of anxiety—to our view of what success might look like in the church and the family. We do not have to look far to consider what unchecked social comparison might look like; our use of social media readily serves as a mirror. Rather than “half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition” as characterised by C.S. Lewis in his 1942 sermon ‘The Weight of Glory’, the relentless nature of our pursuits suggests anything but. However, if Lewis was correct about our natures, that we are “far too easily pleased” as “an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea,” we cannot begin to fathom what the pursuit of true satisfaction might entail, particularly in the face of a perfect God. Not only would a simple reordering of our lives be inadequate, it is bound to fail. The reformer Martin Luther was practically driven insane in his pursuit of a sinless life. However, Christmas gives us reason to rejoice: our ultimate satisfaction is found not in our striving, but through God who has striven for us and shown “his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Indeed, as Lewis observed, “to be loved by God, not merely pitied, but delighted in as an artist delights in his work or a father in a son - it seems impossible, a weight or burden of glory which our thoughts can hardly sustain.” Reflection: Knowing that our sinful eyes are “never satisfied with riches” (Ecclesiastes 4:8), can we find rest from our relentless pursuits to rejoice and satisfy in Christ and his completed work of grace?

  • Church History: The Age of Universal Christianity (70-312) Part 1

    Articles - Backlist < Back Church History: The Age of Universal Christianity (70-312) Part 1 Dn. Mervin Lin 21 August 2019 After the destruction of the second temple in Jerusalem, the church laid plans for the long term. This process shaped its character for many generations and was a result of a spiritual vision of all Christians being in one body. The spread of Christianity during this time was helped by a field that was prepared for harvesting. This field was the God-fearers, Gentiles who were interested spectators of the Jewish religion. They were equipped with the understanding of the Old Testament and in faith were able to embrace Christianity. Christianity spread north, then west. It was predominantly the religion of the poor. The exception to this was the churches in North Africa who spoke Latin and tended to be of the upper class. Even though the church started with the support of the poor and despised, by the end of the second century many of the keenest mind were becoming Christians. They in turn became the defenders of the faith against rumors and false accusations. The church continued to grow on the unshakable assurance of salvation, meeting the needs of the people at that time and expressing love to one another. The church is truly one body when it is driven by the gospel to bring all men to faith in Jesus Christ. The persecution of Christians by the Roman Empire was not uniformly applied throughout this time. The main reason for persecution was due to the Christian’s life ethic of holiness. This caused them to stand out in their pagan society due to the way they lived. The people became suspicious of them because of their lack of conformity. The desire not to compromise their faith led them to become enemies of the Roman Empire. The onset of heresy drove the church to shape good theology. The first century Christians formulated their beliefs against the errors they encountered. Some of the first heresies were directed at the nature of who Jesus was. There were heresies that denied His divine nature and some denied His human nature. But the main heresy to emerge was called Gnosticism. It believed in the dualism of spiritual versus material, where the former was seen as good and the latter as evil. This resulted in the rejection of Jesus’ humanity by Gnosticism. The Apostle’s Creed was a result of the clarification of orthodox convictions in order to cast out the gnostic heresy. The church today is indebted to the doctrinal struggles of the past, as it stands on the shoulders of those who had wrestled with these issues and remained faithful to Scripture. Dn.

  • Don’t Waste Your Life Away Being a Cynical Christian

    Articles - Backlist < Back Don’t Waste Your Life Away Being a Cynical Christian Dn. Benny Low 20 October 2020 In the context of our faith, there is much literature written on how to live (or how not to live) according to the Word of God. In this article, I would like to share on a specific topic - cynicism in church and how it impacts our walk with God. What does it mean to be cynical and what is cynicism? According to Cambridge Dictionary, it defines cynicism as - the belief that people are only interested in themselves and are not sincere . Indeed, we are found to be self-centred and insincere on multiple occasions. The negative presentation of human nature in the definition is not surprising. It is but only a subset of our sinful nature. In Jeremiah 17:9, “ The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” We can even back the case for cynicism up with empirical data. Many of us can readily pull out from our bag of personal disappointments details of bad experiences with a brother or sister in Christ. Surely, these are justifications for being a cynical Christian! I encourage you to think otherwise and let me suggest 2 reasons why. 1. It determines how you respond to others. If you perceive you are surrounded by Christians who have only personal agendas and are insincere, the natural response is to treat every interaction with scepticism and deal on a superficial level. By default, everything that you see and come across is negative. If so, why bother? But what is God’s perspective? All of us are works in progress. Our faith can only progress if we put what God commanded into practice. In the refining process, some may have left a bitter taste in your mouth over an incident or behaviour. While there is no assurance that everyone will progress in their walk positively, not everyone will be stuck at the same spot! Don’t let an incident that happened in the past hold you back or cause you to lose your confidence in the power of our Almighty God to change a person. How about you? What areas of your life does God want you to work on? How would you then sincerely interact with others to build one another up? 2. It determines how you give of yourself to others. If you subscribe to cynicism, you will tread carefully and refrain from doing anything for the kingdom of God. You will be afraid of being criticised or perceived to be having selfish motivations. As such, it is better to keep a low profile and minimise interactions with the body of Christ. Again, what is God’s perspective? In John 13:34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. Jesus wants us to love the way He showed unconditional love for hopeless sinners like us We must practice this and it can only be possible if we show genuine interest in others instead of minimising interactions with one another. Who have you noticed that have gone under the radar during this Covid-19 period? How can you proactively reach out to the people around you? Where can you serve to meet the needs of the church? It is possible to be discerning and not cynical. Man will fail you and so will you fail man. Don’t live a life of avoidance by cutting off from the church in mind and body. Keep your eyes upon Jesus and do not be discouraged. Be fruitful. Don’t waste your life away being a cynical Christian. Dn. Benny Low Previous Next

  • Remember your Creator in the days of your youth

    Articles - Backlist < Back Remember your Creator in the days of your youth Pastor Matthews 6 November 2011 Ecclesiastes was written by Solomon, the wise king. Yes, the wisest man Solomon had it all and lived a long life overflowing with money, power, fame, and many women. But even when he had those things, he not only called them worldly and useless but also lamented that all these still did not satisfy him. It was all vanity like "striving or chasing after wind". Without God, life is indeed meaningless and so the wisest man Solomon rightly concludes in Ecclesiastes 12: 1, “Remember thy Creator in the days of thy youth”. Youth is an important phase of life when values are based on a foundation that will be firmed up. Just like the foundation of our house, if we establish an early and good found­ation based on a relationship with God, we will have a stronger foundation to face the storms of life. As young people, it is always tempting to lay worldly foundations but we need to heed the wisdom and advice of King Solomon. “Remember you Creator in the days of your youth” reminds us that we were designed by the divine hands of our Creator. We didn’t evolve from apes or lower life forms as "scientific theories" as you were made to believe. But more importantly, the verse reminds us to remember God in all the areas of life. We must remember Him daily in our quiet time and prayer. Start the day right with God. Remember Him when you are faced with temptations. "Flee also youthful lusts" (2 Tim 2:22). Remember God in all your everyday decisions. Choose godly and good friends over the worldly or evil friends. Bad company corrupts good character. Remember Him in deciding whom you are going to marry. Do not be unequally yoked with a non-Christian. It is completely against God’s will and will never lead to blessedness. We must remember Him while choosing your studies or occupation. Do not study or work just to earn big while putting God second in this process. But rather honor the Sabbath day and serve Him on the Lord’s Day. Give priority to God and His work. Remember Him by getting involved in the Youth ministry of the Church. The youth fellowship ministry is there for us. It is an exciting place for learning the Word of God, to fellowship, to grow spiritually, to serve and to grow up to be responsible believers in the Lord. We thank God for our youth worker Bro Zhi Wei and his team’s fervent sprit to serve God. The Lord has blessed the Moriah Youth Fellowship over the years with many members and participants. To continue this growth, may I urge all the teens, youths and young adults to participate and be part of the Fellowship ministries like TF or YF or YAF. So, have you registered yourself and your friend for this year youth Camp “ALIVE”? (19th to 23rd December 2011, Aranda Country Club, Cost: only $65). Gentle reminder, registration for the camp opens on 12 November 2011 and there is still time. Parents, it is also important that you too take keen interest in encouraging your children to attend these fellowships. Time and age is irreversible, cultivate your children to remember the creator from the days of their youth. God also wants us to be exemplary to our friends and parents. Instead of adults looking down on teenagers and despising the folly of adolescence, Paul tells Timothy to set good examples in 1 Tim 4:12 “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” Believe, love, obey and serve your Creator and Savior from the days of your youth. Those who do so will find a reservoir of godly counsel to guide them around the pitfalls of bad choices and give them joy in life. Whereas those who don’t, will inevitably fall victim to the sinful temptations of youth and bear the painful consequences of foolish actions throughout their life. As Youths, are you going to remember Him? Our Creator as He Our Redeemer remembers us? Remember your Creator, for this is deeply fulfilling and eternally rewarding. In Christ Only, Pastor Mathews Previous Next
