Rev Daniel Poon
OUR GOAL IS NOT JUST FOR PEOPLE TO COME TO OUR CHURCH, BUT FOR THE CHURCH TO GO TO THE PEOPLE!
“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” (PSALM 23:4)
We always have a fear in our lives, different people have different kinds of fears. Rev Daniel reminded us that fear actually comes from the root of our spirit and soul, and the root of fear comes from the lack of trust and faith in God. So in order to deal with this fear we need:
1. TO CONTINUE BELIEVE IN GOD’S PROMISES
Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” (Mark 4:30)
All of God’s promises are amen and yes. God will take responsibility of His promises despite any obstacles we may encounter. God wants us to see His signs and wonders through our attendance in church and cell groups. Rev Daniel reminded us that through God, anything is possible!
2. TO ACT & BOLDLY OBEY
A lot of Christians are always negotiating with God. But we actually need to know we come to church not to receive but to see if the church is alive, whether it will carry out God’s biggest commandment, which is to love Him and to love our neighbors.
3. TO LOOK UP TO GOD AND WAIT
Don’t look around you’ll be impressed, don’t look down you’ll be depressed, just look up to God you’ll be blessed.
