Something New
新的事

on January 2021

By Rev. Daniel
 
Introduction
2020 has come to an end.  If we were to ask the question, “So what has happened in that year?”  Probably the answer is COVID-19.  That was what it had been the past year.  With a gloomy past, how then are we to face a new year?  This is what we are all asking ourselves as we face 2021.  There are some who are pessimistic, there are also those who are optimistic and there are also those who are realistic. 
 
I have been thinking too.  What do you think the Lord has in stored for us in this new year?  What is the Lord going to do for us, to us and in us in the new year?
 
In Isaiah 43:18-19
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
 
A. A New Thing Awaiting us.  (Forget the Past)
The prophet of God said, “Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past!”.  It does not mean that we erase all memory of the past - we cannot even if we want to.  But I believe it means we must not let the past hinder the future.  The key word here is “dwell” which means being settled, living in the past.  While we use to do things in the past, it would have to be different for now.  As we look into 2021, it is looking with this expectation – the new is awaiting – we must be willing to forego the way we do things in the past to welcome the new.
 
There were things we still remember though.  In fact from verse 1-17, God was actually relating to them the past of his ability to deliver them.  There are things we want to remember.  For example;
1. Thank God that He has Pardon us of my past
2. Thank God that He provides for me in the past.
3. Thank God that He pushed me out from the past.
 
We look at the past with grateful to God, but that does not mean we should be living in the past.  They are past and they confirmed our faith in God.
 
There were many things that bound us from the past like, resentment, failures, worries, and sins.  God has delivered us from them all.  If we dwell on the past, harboring resentment, culturing worries, rolling in our failures, we will then not be able to enjoy the new thing!
 
B. A New Thing – we must anticipate it  (Looking Ahead)
“See, I am doing a new thing!”
Well, it says here that “He is making a way in the desert, and streams in the wasteland.”  The problem many at times is that we don’t see what God sees.  We see a desert, God saw a Highway.  We see wasteland, God saw a well watered land.  We see Covid 19, God saw the world crying out to Him.
 
Do you see that?  God is doing something new.  WE must learn to anticipate the new way of doing things as something good – something far reaching than we can imagine.
 
C. A New Thing – let us embrace it 
“I provided water in the desert and streams in the wasteland ... that they may proclaim my praise”
 
Changes carries the idea of newness.  If you changed your hairstyle today, you will probably hear something like this, “There is something new about you ah!”. 
Likewise to be ready for the future is to embrace it and manifest that change.  A person who is willing to change is the one who is ready for something new.  If you are not - there will be nothing new.
 
Verses 22-24 tells us that the way we show that we are ready is our willingness to offer to God that which belongs to God - and the first thing is to surrender ourselves to Him.
 
CONCLUSION
As we enter the new year – let us also move in faith and thanksgiving, surrendering ourselves to God as he is doing something new.  Don’t frown, have faith!  God bless all of you.

Christmas Pondering
圣诞节的反思

on December 2020

by Rev. Daniel

Introduction
Christmas like any other celebration for the year 2020 is going to be different.  Every celebration has to be down-scaled in many ways.  There will be a lesser festive mood, lesser visitation, lesser exchange of greetings and the like.

As we come to the Christmas season, what can we learn or anticipate for the year 2020?

A PAUSE
If we were to look at the scenario today, with each celebration, there seems to be a spike in the COVID-19 cases, the last being Deepavali.  However, would that mean that the Christmas spirit be stolen by this pandemic?  Surely not.

Nevertheless, as we celebrate Christmas, it would be a pause.  A pause to see the hands of God in the midst of trials.  We go back to the first Christmas – there had been 400 years of silence from the Lord Jehovah.  There were no more prophets, no more miracles taking place in Israel.  It was simply a day-to-day routine causing a spirit of despondency that they have almost forgotten the promises of God.

It was a 400 years silence then – and it has been almost a year of crisis and uncertainty.  Is there anything left for us to celebrate?

At the end of November, my wife decided to decorate the house with some Christmas lights and decoration.  As I watched her and helped her, I told myself – “COVID-19 shall not rob us of the Christmas spirit”.  It may be different this year but the good news of hope, love, peace and joy shall continue to ring silently to others.  It may be a pause, but a pause of God’s working in our hearts and the hearts of others.

A PONDERING
Another element is a pondering in our hearts.  Even as I thought of this Christmas season and the pulpit, it was impressed upon my heart that it is going to be different but personal.  God is going to speak to our hearts and we must be set to ponder what God is saying.

As such, let us look forward to what God is doing and speaking to us.  A series of sermons has been planned to gear us towards listening to God.
 

Christmas Theme:  When Everything came to a pause
Dec 6   Mt 1:18-24 The Heart of Joseph – Is your heart right?
Dec 13 Lk 2:19 The Pondering of Mary – What are you up to God?
Dec 20 Lk 2:28-35 The Waiting of Simeon – Is this for real God?
Dec 25 Lk 2:10 The Countenance of Christmas – Fearful or Faithful?
Dec 27 Jn 1:14-18 Immanuel – Pause, what did God do?
 
I pray that all of us will hear the voice of God during this Christmas in a special but different way.

A PROCLAMATION
Lastly, there is still the proclamation, not forgetting that all that the Lord has done is for us to proclaim but again in a very different way.  To some of you, it may be a personal touch and telling to loved ones, to close friends, perhaps over a family dinner taking the opportunity to tell others why you are still celebrating Christmas but in a smaller scale.

To yet another using social media as a way to make Jesus known – share your story, write something about Christmas on your Facebook, make a short video telling others why you celebrate Christmas and in a quiet way, thousands can get to hear this news of hope and faith.

Yet to others like me – I find myself preaching the gospel more fervently than before, taking every opportunity for those who are tuned into the internet and the online service to have the opportunity to hear the gospel.

We have been saying that it is the last days we are living in.  Therefore, greater is the urgency than before.  May God bestowed upon you the wisdom, the boldness and the joy of Christmas.

Blessed Christmas to all of you.

Growing Up To Maturity
往成熟的方向成长

on November 2020

By Pastor Tang Long Kin 

We have just celebrated our 12 th anniversary in October, 2020. As we looked back the past 12 years, we were all filled with thanksgiving in our heart to God for His love and protection and providence in all that we have. God has indeed blessed us beyond what we can dare hope for, both in FCC and in our own family.

As I ponder on it I ask these questions: What are there for us beyond 12 years? Are we just going to add another year to it and next year we celebrate 13 th anniversary? What should we be after 12 years? 

12 years has great significance in our lives; both physiologically and socially. Our bodies began to change and start to develop sexually for reproduction. Socially, our community began to recognize us as coming of age. In most societies we mark this age with a special ceremony. Twelve years is indeed a milestone in our life.

Upon reaching 12 years old, we are required by law to apply for an identity card. When we got our ID card we feel with pride in our heart that we are now somebody. We have an identity that states our name and address and date of birth and other personal information. We feel proud because we are somebody now. But our parents and community also expect more from us. We are expected to be more responsible in many areas. We are also expected to behave with more maturity. In school, 12 th year is
the final year in primary school. After that we are promoted to lower secondary school. It is another milestone in our life. 

As a member of FCC, I am also feeling with pride in my heart as we celebrated our anniversary. I can’t help but to sense that God is also telling us now He expects more responsibilities from us. We are no longer babies anymore. We have reached a certain stage of maturity. Our Heavenly Father has been taking care and providing for us for the past 12 years while we were infants and then as little children.
Now we are growing into adulthood. We are expected to carry more responsibilities. We are expected to behave in a more matured ways both towards each other within the FCC family and also towards others in the kingdom of our Heavenly Father. We are no longer to be fed with spiritual milk but we have to learn to feed on more solid diet. We are no longer expected to be fed but to learn to prepare a more substantial meal for ourselves and our family members who are still young.

As in any growing family, there are babies, children and adults in it. FCC is also growing and must continue to grow. The more matured ones must now take on more responsibilities in growing the family. They must get themselves organized to provide spiritual food for the younger ones. Just as God commanded Adam & Eve to go forth and multiply, Jesus commanded His disciples to go and make disciples of all nations. We must do likewise to bring in spiritual babies and nurture them to maturity. 

We are growing into maturity and more are expected from us. We must rise up to take on this responsibility. We will not just add another year to next year’s celebration but to show our commitments to grow to maturity as we step into a new era.
