    God has empowered each one of us to engage so that we can express love to one another and so that we can exalt Him.

    The Beijing Olympics has come and gone. Sadly, our athletes did not win a single medal, let alone a gold medal. Yes, we won a gold medal in Wushu. But it did not affect our medal standing because it is just a demonstration event. I am not putting down our athletes. They tried to compete against all more

    We are to acknowledge the significance of our gifts.

    Last time I spoke, we looked at 1 Peter 4:10-11. We saw that God has empowered each one of us to engage, He gave us spiritual gifts, so that we can express love to others and exalt God. Now, let us open our Bibles in 1 Corinthians as we continue our series on spiritual gifts. Here we will see that more

    We are to accept the sovereign choice of the Spirit in giving us gifts.

    Have you ever been compared as child? Your parent said, “Why don’t you become like your older brother?” Or, have you ever been compared as an employee? Your boss said, “Why didn’t you close as much deals as this or that employee?” Did you like it when you were compared? Do you like being compared more

    We are to appreciate our special place in the Body of Christ.

    If you have a choice, which part of your body can you live without? I think you would answer with the famous line of the vitamin commercial, “I want to be complete.” Well, according to 1 Corinthians 12:27, “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” [1] I believe God more

    The leader’s responsibility is to bring out the best in people.

    Allow me to thank all of you who lovingly prayed that my surgery would be successful. Thank you also for helping us one way or the other. Our family felt so encouraged. I remember some of you assuring me not to worry for they will take care of the church. Those are words that pastors would love to more

    The laity’s response is to build up the body with the lasting result that it will be united and mature.

    In relationships such as the corporate world or the married life, it is important to be clear on our expectations. God made it very clear what He expects from us. Let us read Ephesians 4:11-13. “It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be more

    We should rightly assess ourselves and we should responsibly access our gifts.

    There’s nothing like the local church when she is working right. When the church becomes the church that God intended her to be, the church is a force to reckon with. Lives are changed. Marriages restored. Families united. Communities transformed. No wonder the church was labeled as “These who have more

    Flame on!

    Someone said that at the end of our lives, we will regret the things we didn’t do more than the things we did. But when that time comes I think we would like to sing the line of a famous song, “Regrets I’ve had a few. But, then again, too few to mention.”[1] One of my fears in life is that I would more
