True Treasures "But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ." (Philippians 3:7) After I graduated, I thought my life would start off as l planned: I'll have a high-flying career, earn lots of money, travel the world, be famous, own a car and condo, and live life to the fullest. This was my definition of a happy life, What I soon discovered is that none of these made my life happy or fulfilled. This is exactly what Solomon was talking about in Ecclesiastes - it's like chasing the wind.…

Heavenly Thoughts "When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory." (Colossians 3:4)I believe we don't think of heaven as much as we should. We are often occupied by the things we do on this earth on a daily basis. We are always concerned about our needs that we become selfish. When our self becomes the center of our life, we then find ourselves battling with the desire for authority, popularity and achievements.But when we think of heaven and fix our eyes on Jesus, we think less of ourselves and more…

Behind the Scenes "[We are treated] as unknown and ignored [by the world], and [yet we are] well-known and recognized [by God and His people]; as dying, and yet here we are alive; as chastened by suffering and [yet] not killed." (2 Corinthians 6:9) In every church service, there are people who really serve behind the scenes. These are the people that come to church maybe two or three hours before the church program begins. They clean the toilets, parking lots, and worship hall. They take charge of mixing the audio so that the congregation can hear clearly all the…

What Will Be Your Title? "His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant/ You have been faithful with a few things; i will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'" Matthew 25:21 If God allowed you to have one title, which title would you choose? What is the title you've been longing to earn? How would you want to be remembered at the end of your life? What's the one word that you would want to be known by? Is it president, champion, best, most, first? The list goes on. Personally, I want…

Selfie No More "He has to become greater while I become less." (John 3:30) Narcissism is the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one's own attribute. It has become a real epidemic in our advanced world. How so? Firstly, people show themselves off on Facebook through taking "selfies" every day. While an innocent act for some, it can also indicate an unhealthy obsession with the self. Secondly, there's the term "humble brag" - a practice of showing off accomplishments and wealth (like on Facebook) while trying to appear modest. There's really no law against it, but it…

Friend of the Bridegroom "You yourselves are my witnesses that I said, 'I am not the Christ,' but, I have been sent ahead of Him.' He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom,who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. So this joy of mine has been made full." (John 3:28-29) Our church, our ministry, and our missionary work all belong to Jesus. This must be a constant reminder for every pastor, leader and worker. There is a huge gap between the manager and the owner. Many ministers forget that…

The Greatest "An argument started among them as to which of them might be the greatest. But Jesus, knowing what they were thinking in their heart, took a child and stood him by His side, said to them, "Whoever receives this child in My name receives Me, and whoever receives Me receives Him who sent Me; for the one who is least among all of you, this is the one who is great." (Luke 9:46-48) We live in a world where VIPs exist, being first matters, and accolades and achievement give you an edge in society. This has pushed many…
