Lions Home Ministry Update

PrintE-mail

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Sunday, 21 January 2018

As we recall God’s bountiful blessing and goodness upon this ministry to the Lions Home for the Elders (Bedok and Bishan) in the year 2017, we look forward to yet another year of fruitful Gospel ministry in 2018. Indeed, we count it a joyful privilege to serve the Lord among the elderly. Every Lord’s Day, after our church worship and Bible study (now GBI class), we would set out to visit the elderly people in the Lions Home.

The primary purpose of this ministry is to declare the Good News and glorify our Lord Jesus Christ. We pray that the seniors whom we visit will come to the saving knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ...


Boasting in the LORD

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Sunday, 14 January 2018

The psalmist David said, “My soul shall make her boast in the LORD” (Psalm 34:2). Similarly, in another psalm it is said, “In God we boast all the day long, and praise thy name for ever. Selah” (Psalm 44:8). “Boasting” in the Lord is all about duly and joyfully acknowledging and exalting the Lord above oneself and everything else. It is about rejoicing in the Lord and all that He has done. An elevated feeling of gratitude, praise and rejoicing overwhelms the man who boasts in the Lord, and he spontaneously and sincerely exalts the Lord.

Since the soul that boasts in the Lord is most concerned about the Lord’s praise, it will be least concerned about its own glory. When the glory of the Lord is the soul’s uppermost passion, the soul boasts in nothing but the Lord alone. That soul will be selfdenying and full of thanksgiving before the Lord...


Christ’s Custom of Worship: Our Example

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Sunday, 07 January 2018

While on earth, Christ – though worshipped by the heavenly hosts of angels (cf. Hebrews 1:6; Luke 2:9-14; 1 Peter 3:22; Revelation 5:9-12) – habitually took His place among the worshipping people. Luke, the inspired historian, records concerning Christ: “as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read” (Luke 4:16).

We might rightly wonder why He, who is fully God and full of glory and power, would join men of low estate in their worship. Even so, it was customary for Him to be in the place of worship on the Sabbath day. Though the worshippers could offer Him nothing to benefit Him, He disregarded not the assembling of the worshipping community...
