Our Special Delight: Going To The House Of The Lord

PrintE-mail

"I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD"

It is the special delight of everyone who loves God to go into the house of the LORD to worship Him. When the day of worship comes, they love to be where God's people are gathered together. Their hearts rejoice when others tell them it is time to go to the house of the LORD.

The psalmist tells us that when he was invited by others to go to the house of the LORD, he was glad. Obviously, he was eagerly waiting to go to the place where they worshipped God. So he accepted the invitation joyfully.

A child of God is unlike those who rejoice in going to the house of wickedness. He does not rejoice in worldly pleasures. He is not charmed by the sound of worldly music. He detests their unwholesome speech. He dreads the sounds and sights of the houses of sin.

He would rather be in the presence of the LORD and His people. His heart yearns to join the people of God in singing hymns of praise, in praying, in hearing the Word of God and in serving the LORD.

May our hearts find joy in the house of the LORD! May our excitement to be in the house of the LORD inspire others! Let us cheerfully encourage one another to gather together to worship the LORD in His house.

 

 

A Testimony Of Thanksgiving For BWMM
(Posted in the BWMM's Facebook Page)


The Bible Witness Media Ministry has been very close to my heart. It has ministered to my family since the day we came to know it. Let me count our blessings...

Bible Witness lunchtime Bible study has been a place of refuge during the most difficult 8 months in my working life. For the whole 8 months, week after week, I came to the Bible study in terrible shape after being "beaten up" in the office. God, through Dn Paul Cheng, ministered to me with His Word, restored and uplifted me, and then sent me back to the office for more "bashing"!! :)

The Scripture in Song DVD was where my daughter picked up her very first memory verse. This is how she came to know Cornelius.

Children’s Christmas Musical DVD was my daughter's 1st experience of the nativity play. This is also how she came to know Pastor Koshy.

Fanny Crosby Musical DVD was where Priscilla was first introduced to the blind hymnwriter who turned out to be auntie Flora in her role as Fanny Crosby.

The story of Jonathan Goforth in Bible Witness Magazine was where my daughter learnt about giving to missions. This is the first ministry that she gave her ang pau money to.

At the Bible Witness Retreat children’s programme, Priscilla learnt 10 names of God in Hebrew and she can still recite them today. This is how she came to know auntie Carolyn.

Being a stay-at-home mum can be very lonely at times. It is not easy to attend fellowship groups while taking care of a young child. But through the Bible Witness Web Radio, my wife can listen to godly sermons and hymns at any time of the day. It is a huge source of comfort and encouragement for her.

There are just too many blessings that I cannot list them all here. Some are too personal to share, others may seem trivial but God knows their profound impact in our Christian walk. Thank God for Bible Witness and all the labourers behind the scene. May the Lord bless you all richly.

Bro Eliezer's Report on 2nd Anniversary of TGCM, Cebu

 

Dear Pastor Koshy,

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

The Lord is truly and greatly to be praised for His goodness and faithfulness upon TGCM, Cebu. The Lord has seen TGCM, Cebu through for 2 years. All glory and honour be unto the Lord for His grace that has enabled us to serve in the ministry. I praise and thank the Lord for the untiring support of the mother church and TGCM, Singapore.

Last Saturday, we had our 2nd Anniversary Thanksgiving Service. It was indeed a great time of rejoicing in God's goodness and faithfulness. I praise the Lord that you had joined us in our rejoicing through the presence of Bro Jeremiah, Bro Sangkar and Bro Johnny. The service was well attended with brethren from Cebu church, former residents together with loved ones and friends. We gave all the glory and honour to God through the presentation of songs, testimonies, singing of hymns and preaching of God's Word. "My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever" (Psalm 145:21).

TGCM, Cebu will continue to be a "Gospel home for the weary and heavy laden" so that those who come into the gates of TGCM, Cebu would know the One and only Saviour Jesus Christ.

Sincerely in Christ,

Bro Eliezer Ortega
