Bring Them To Me
领过来给我

on February 2020

“Bring them to me” by Pastor Daniel
 
Introduction
A few days ago, I was having my devotion and reading from the gospel of Matthew concerning the story of the feeding of the five thousand.  This is a story that is familiar to all of us.  The statement that Jesus made was significant when the disciples came back to Jesus saying that there they had only five loaves and two fish which were obviously insufficient to feed the five thousand present.
 
To that Jesus said, “Bring them here to me.”  That made all the difference.
 
Share your life, Shine your light
With the current theme for the year, here again is a devotional thought that reinforces this same thought - “Bring them here to me.”
 
The past few weeks, I had been hearing many among you uttering the new word, “spendomai” and here was the case of the little boy who “spendomai” his lunch.  But what was that for the five thousand present?
 
Well, I think the little boy did not even think about it.  He heard that there was a need that was all he could offer and so he did. 
 
The disciples sounded a little more sarcastic, taking only one little boy’s lunch and sarcastically questioned Jesus - that was all that was available.
 
The point was this - it did not matter how each one perceived that five loaves and two fish.  The innocent boy or the sarcastic disciples.  What matters was that, there was the offering of the loaves and fish.
 
This year’s theme is about that aspect of our lives - it does not matter how others perceive our “offering” but it matters that we are willing to share.
 
Sharing our lives is about the willingness to offer whatever we have to the Lord, whether it is our time, our service, our resources or our family.  Sharing our lives is about our first and foremost devotion to the Lord.  I know we have been hearing this quite a lot, but are we willing to bring to God whatever we may have?  The Lord still speaks today, “Bring them here to me.”
 
Five Thousand Blessed
Sharing our lives is also about, letting God decide how wide a blessing it can be.  Only God knows what the need is and how wide the influence is He wants to make with our offering.
 
The little boy certainly was not sure that his lunch meal could satisfy one person, let alone feed more than five thousand people.  But it did.
 
The difference is this - in our hands, yes it may only feed one person, but in God’s hand, it can multiply and satisfy five thousand people.
 
In verse 20, it was stated that, “they all ate and were satisfied.  And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over.”
 
That is all we need to know - while many tried different ways of explaining how this could happen, we all know that God did a miracle with the offering of one little boy’s lunch pack.
 
Our lives, looking at it may seem so insignificant.  And in all reality, it is - just a simple lunch pack but there is another reality taking place - God’s reality.
 
Sharing our lives is about living in the reality of God.  This is so because as we look at it, why would one want to share that lunch - it is not a great lunch and it is not a great amount.  When we speak of Paul’s attitude of “spendomai”, we ask, “why would he do that and why would he be so glad to do that?”  In a simple statement, it is this - “Because he lived in another reality - God’s reality.”
 
Blessed to be a blessing
As we approach this new year and as we have accomplished the crossing over from 2019 to 2020, this is about, being a blessing to someone.  Only God can make that happen, but we come responding to the words of Jesus, ‘Bring them here to me.”  Will we bring them to Jesus?  I asked myself this question, “What would be my five loaves and two fish?”  I ask you the same question, “What is your five loaves and two fish?” 
                                                                                                                                   
Let us be a blessing because God has blessed us and He will continue to bless our “spendomai”.

The Holy And Merciful God
圣洁且充满怜悯的上帝

on January 2020

By Pastor Daniel 

Introduction
As we rethink of our relationship with God, in various aspects in the months past, I would like to conclude yet another feature of our relationship with God.
 
It is the Holy and Merciful God.  Ultimately in all the pictures of our relationship with God as Father, Friend, Shepherd, Bridegroom, He remains our God.
                                     
THE HOLY GOD
Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
 
The psalmist acknowledges the great and mighty God.  It is God’s exhortation that we learn to be still, to be quiet, to allow everything around us to settle as dust settles on the ground, thereby to know that there is only one fact remains - that God is God.
 
He is Almighty, He is great, He is to be exalted amongst nation and the earth. 
 
If there is a favorite song sung in heaven, it has to be “Holy, holy, holy”.  Countless times in the Bible, the reference of the angels in heaven singing and declaring that God is holy are recorded.  It is no accident that it is always in a trilogy.  This is because we worship a Triune God.
 
Despite all the pictures of relationships we have with God, a final encounter with Him is always His holiness.  Holiness cannot escape the attributes of God.
 
Moses in search for the destiny of his life, came to a mountain, only to see a burning bush but a voice coming out of it says, “Take off your scandals for you are standing on holy ground.”
 
Isaiah’s encounter with God in a vision in chapter 6, saw the absolute holiness of God to the point that he only saw his own sinfulness.  Even a prophet who spoke the word of God considered himself a man of unclean lips.
 
John on the island of Patmos, when given the vision of God, saw the holiness of God and the angels and elders bowing down to worship Him.
 
Even Peter in the earthly days of Jesus, on an occasion when he was in the fishing boat and there was a miraculous catch, jumped into the water, swam to shore and bow before Jesus, exclaiming, “Depart from me for I am a sinner.”  What did he see then?  It has to be the holiness of God.
 
THE MERCIFUL GOD
With that thought of God’s holiness, we can never comprehend - the mercies of God.  They are almost opposite in character.  When we think of justice and holiness, we think little of mercy and grace.
 
Yet this holy God is at the same time a merciful God.
 
“The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin …” Exodus 34:6-7.
 
“Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments …” Deuteronomy 7:9.
 
In the Bible, the virtues of mercy and compassion are mentioned in various forms hundreds of times, especially in describing God’s nature. Instead of giving us what we deserve, God has shown mercy again and again.
 
What does the mercy of God done for us besides saving us from our sins?
 
BE YE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY
The mercies of God does not take away our responsibility, but to give us a chance to repent and be saved. We can ask ourselves: How have we responded?
 
The obvious answer is really to repent and live holy lives because we have a holy God.  It is not being flippant in our relationship with God.  It holds in good tension, the intimacy we have in God, at the same time the awe we hold when we worship our God.
 
Then the other responsibility is that we show mercy because we have been shown mercy.  That is what our life is redeemed for - to bless as we are being blessed.
 
As we enter into a new decade in 2020, may we who are blessed, be more godlike.  Let us Share our lives with others, Shine our lights to a world who does not know God.

Our Relationship With God : Bride Awaiting The Bridegroom
我们与上帝的关系 : 新娘等待新郎

on December 2019

By Pastor Daniel 

Introduction

As I think of our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, there is one which is described in the context of marriage - the bride and the groom. Perhaps this is the most intimate of all relationships.  The bonding of two persons in union as one.
 
This relationship is spelt out throughout scriptures - from the Old Testament through the last book of the Bible.
 
A Commitment
The very first incident we have of God’s relationship with His people is pictured in the prophet of Hosea.  It is indeed a story of unshifted commitment.  Regardless of Gomer’s unfaithfulness, Hosea remained faithful.
 
The story of Hosea and Gomer is itself a prophecy of Yahweh God and Israel.  The beauty of the drama between this couple is the persistent faithfulness of Hosea, a faithfulness that is out of this world, a love that is truly unbroken and unconditional.
 
In Hosea 3:1, is stated, “And the LORD said to me, “Go again, love a woman who is loved by another man and is an adulteress, even as the LORD loves the children of Israel, though they turn to other gods and love cakes of raisins.”
 
It speaks to us about the love of God that will continue to pursue us even when we ignore him and play the adulteress.  When we come to recognize the love of God, we will inevitably run to Him.  God made a covenant with Israel, God made a commitment with us as His people and His children.  We are His by commitment, like that of a marriage - to promise to love.
 
A Sacrifice of Love
Then as we move to the New Testament, one of those passages that speaks so clearly to us in this kind of a relationship is found in Ephesians 5:25, “Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her..”  These words are given in a marriage context between husband and wife, where the wife is to submit to her husband and the husband to love his wife.
 
The allusion then given was the sacrificial love of Christ towards the church.  In this marriage context, Paul summarizes in verse 32, “This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.”  That is how God sees us.  That is how God relates to us.  We are His bride and the object of His love.  He would do anything for her to the extent of giving his life for us.  This is not just a metaphor or an expression or other figure of speech to tell someone you love her.  It is literal and it is a reality.  That is why God came to this world in Christ - to die in our place, that in his death, we might have life.
 
There is no God in any other religion that would do that.  God is simply too transcendent to do that.  But in Christianity, God seeks for the lost, the willingness to die for the lost so that we can be restored to God in this union of love.
 
As we hold on to that thought, we rest in the assurance that God will, in loving us, also provide, protect and assure us of His love.  Would we who know this great and loving God, look for another?
 
A Beauty of Anticipation
Continuing from the thought in Ephesians is also this note in verse 26-27, “... that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.”
 
I think this is one beautiful thought and picture when we think of our relationship with God.  For those who are married, we can identify with this clearly, how the anticipation was on the day of your wedding as husband - the sheer delight when you see your bride walk down the aisle. 
 
That is our anticipation when we meet the lover of our soul.  It is not just getting to heaven and remain invisible - it would be spectacular where angels longed to look.
 
In the book of Revelation 21:9, “Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues and spoke to me, saying, ‘Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb...”
 
This bride on that day, will indeed be spotless and without wrinkle, holy unto the Lamb.  We enter the presence of God as a display of the great work of God who has redeemed and restored the bride, the church, believers like you and I.
 
Conclusion
When I thought of that, I cannot help but to think and thank God for his great love.  A relationship that lasts and a relationship that brings out the beauty of the bride by what the groom does.  He will be faithful - let us be faithful.  He has sacrificed his life for us - let us be committed to Him. He will present us beautiful - let us walk in newness of life, exhibiting the beauty of Christ in us.
