Above and Beyond

Sunday, 8th March 2020

Rev Daniel Xi An Poon

We need find find answer from our Creator God. As Christians, we are chosen by God to do things above and beyond what we can imagine. This earth is unwell, but as Christians and we can stand up and make a difference. Therefore we should always ask ourselves, “what does God want me to do for Him?”

1) Return to God

Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple faced east; the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar. He brought me out by way of the north gate, and led me around on the outside to the outer gateway that faces east; and there was water, running out on the right side. (Ezekiel 47:1-2)

2) What do we see?

And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist. Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed. He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen this?” Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river. When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. (Ezekiel 47:3-7)

3) GOD‘s Promise

Then he said to me: “This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes. (Ezekiel 47:8-9)

This year our church’s theme is arise and shine, and Rev Daniel encouraged all of us to stand up, step out from our comfort zone, and shine for Jesus!
