Building a Church Aft er God's Own Heart

Christians today hold different views on the church. Many

Christians like to attend churches that have lots of people,

worshipping in beautiful and grand church buildings

which are fully equipped. Some Christians choose to

attend churches with lots of activities, above par praise

and worship teams, as well as full of warmth and love. As we come

to build the church of God, we cannot just follow human opinions;

we must return to the Bible, to study the teachings of Jesus, the

model of the early church and the teachings of the apostles, in

order to build a church after God?s own heart.

What kind of church is a church after God?s own heart? I want to

share the following five aspects for us to reflect together.

1. A Church That Pursues Unit y in One Spirit

The desire of Jesus is for Christians to pursue unity. According to

John chapter 17, in His final parting prayer, the Lord Jesus pleaded

with the Father specifically for the unity of the disciples and for the

unity of the church through the age: ?And I am no longer in the

world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy

Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that

they may be one, even as we are one. ? I do not ask for these only,

The Lord's Supper is often used to indicate church unity

Gerard de Lairesse, The Institution of the Eucharist, 1664-1665

but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they do not ask for these only, but also

for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one? .? (John 17:11, 20-21a).

The division in the church will definitely bring shame to the name of the Lord, cause stumble among our

brothers and sisters, and destroy the work of the church. Only a church in unity can prosper the gospel,

develop ministry, and honour the name of the Lord. In Ephesians 4:1-6, Paul reminded believers to

maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. He taught us to do so ?with all humility and

gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in

the bond of peace.? It is my hope that believers of the Methodist Church will do their best to keep the

unity in the Lord.

2. A Church That Prays Toget her in One Spirit

It is also the will of Jesus for the Christians to pray together in one spirit. In Matt. 18:19, Jesus told us the

promise of praying together. Jesus said: ?Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything

they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.? Here, we are reminded of the importance for

believers to pray together as a body. After Jesus ascended into heaven, the first time the believers

gathered together was in a prayer meeting where everyone prayed in one spirit and it brought about the

coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. From the records of Acts, we see that the early church put a great

emphasis on prayer. Thus, at that time, God performed many miraculous signs and wonders through the

apostles, and the ministry of the church continued to expand. It is my hope that believers of the

Methodist Church will value prayer and be involved in praying in one spirit.

3. A Church That Nurt ures Disciples

For Christians to nurture disciples is the command

of Jesus. The great commission that Jesus gave,

before his ascension into heaven, is for his

disciples to ?go and make disciples of all nations.?

One of the purposes of the church is to proclaim

the gospel and nurture disciples, so that they can,

in turn, witness for our Lord Jesus on earth and

produce many more disciples. The believers of the

early church truly experienced ?the Lord adding to

their number day by day, those who were being

saved.? The believers at that time must have been

very active in sharing the gospel of Jesus with

others. When the Lord gave them those who had

been saved, the apostles nurtured those new

believers to enable them to ?devote themselves to

the apostles?teaching.? In Colossians 2:6-7, Paul

also taught us, that after believers received Christ

Jesus the Lord, they still need to be ?rooted and

built up in him and established in the faith, just as

you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.? It is

my hope that the believers of the Methodist

Church not only attend Discipleship classes, but

also lead others to believe in Jesus, and nurture

the new believers to grow in Christ.

4. A Church That Lives Out t he Love of God

For Christians, to live out the love of God is also a

command of Jesus. Jesus told us: ?This is my

commandment, that you love one another as I

have loved you.? (Jn 15:12). The Apostle Peter also

told us to ?make every effort to add to your faith,

godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection,

and brotherly affection with love.? (2 Pet 1:5, 7).

Paul taught us that love was the norm for all

Christian behaviour. In Rom 13:9-10, he stresses

that love does no wrong to a neighbour; love

enables people to benefit themselves.

Furthermore, ?You shall love your neighbour as

yourself? is the essence of the commandment. A

famous quote of the founder of the Methodist

Church, John Wesley, says: ?Do all the good you

can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you

can, in all the places you can, at all the times you

can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you

can.? It is my hope that our Methodist Church will

live out the love of God and be concerned with our

neighbours in our community.

5. A Church That Act ively Involves in Global


Christians should not only care about, and

participate in, the ministries of their own churches,

but God also wants us to spread the salvation of

His love for the world to the ends of the earth.

Jesus, before he was taken up into heaven, had

promised that his disciples would receive power

when the Holy Spirit came upon them, and also

told them, ?You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem

and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the

earth.? (Acts 1:8). God?s wish is that all nations and

all people in the world will share in His kingdom.

Facing such a large field of harvest, how can we sit

still and ignore it? Beside sending out a few

short-term mission teams overseas, it is my hope

that we have our own missionaries from our

Methodist Church to serve in overseas missions.


In conclusion, I hope that the pastors as well as

brothers and sisters of CMCA are willing to rely on

God?s help and strength, strive to pursue unity in

the Lord, spend time to pray together in one spirit,

focus on nurturing disciples to produce godly

children, actively live out the love of God in the

community, as well as actively participate in the

work of global missions. Only when we are in the

Lord, then, we can bear more fruit for God, ?for

apart from me you can do nothing.?

However, the next

Church Praise Ministry

" As a r esult [of the chur ch pr aise ministr y], people fr om

differ ent denominations as well as non-Chr istians joined

together to sing God?s pr aises. "

- Bob Organ


he Praise Group at CMCA Sherwood

was formed several years ago when a

concerned couple in the fellowship had

a desire to provide more involvement

within the fellowship because in today's

society there are so many non-Christian activities

competing to capture our time, hearts and minds.

The fortnightly informal meetings proved very

popular as members from all ages came together

to praise our Lord.

The group

included very

capable singers as

well as those of us

who love to praise

? not always in

tune, but


Scriptures?edict to

?make a joyful

noise.? It provides

a casual

opportunity for

members to open

up to each other

and share our


daily lives. These

meetings were initially held in the fellowship hall

but are now held every second Friday night in a

church member?s home.

During the second year of the meetings, a brother

was hospitalised with a very serious condition

which required an extended stay. As Christmas

approached, the founding couple realised that our

brother was missing fellowship, so some members

of the group began visiting and singing with him

and his family members, with music being

supplied by one of the group?s founders.

Very soon, other inpatients were invited to join

with this brother and his family to sing carols when

he was well enough to leave his room for a lounge

area. Out of this simple sharing of carols, a

ministry of regular praising in the hospital began.

Further longer periods in recuperation facilities

were required for the healing process of this

brother. Other patients were always asked to join

in the praise sessions. As a result, people from

different denominations as well as non-Christians

joined together to sing God?s praises. Some of the

residents were starving for Christian fellowship

and wanted more visits by the praise team. Some

inpatients even led the singing with their beautiful

voices. In one facility, staff members sometimes

joined for brief periods as their duties allowed.

Another brother was also hospitalised with a

condition that required a very long stay. So, praise

sessions were organised for him at his hospital

too. When he eventually moved into a long-term

care facility, the praise group continued to praise

with him and his fellow residents. These visits are

still continuing.

After a while, the hospital-visiting group settled

into being mainly older Christians. During the

visits, members of other fellowships and

denominations occasionally joined with CMCA

Sherwood to praise in the care facilities. However,

during 2018, many youths swelled the groups

numbers, revitalising the praise sessions with their

enthusiasm, instrument skills, and beautiful voices.

The group now ranges from mid-teens to

octogenarians with everyone being blessed by the

opportunity to bring God?s love to the care facility

through praise.

2018 culminated with a carol singing event on the

last Sunday before Christmas day, with the facility

management giving permission for the use of a

large common area that saw more residents of the

care facility able to join in with nearly 30 members

from CMCA Sherwood singing many of the joyful

carols not only known and loved by Christians in

the care facility, but even known by those who had

no faith. It was so encouraging to see the frowns

on some patients?faces turn to beautiful smiles as

they sang carols and opened up to chat with

church members.

Hospital visits are now held the first Sunday of

each month.

"One day, he will

mor e dar kness."

- Lucas Sharley

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consetetur sadipscing elitr.

Can we actually know what God is like?

In my church, we have a special reading about knowing

God. It?s a set of verses that describe what God is like:

God is light, God is love, God is power. But, words

without understanding are just sounds. The reading

only means something to us if it is connected to ideas about God. In

this article, I?ll be giving summaries of what the words from the

reading say about God; beginning with light.

1 John 1:5 ? ?God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all.?

What does John mean when he says God is light?

Images are useful for talking about God. They avoid narrow

meanings. John could have written, ?God is entirely good and is

never influenced by evil.? That sentence is precise. It can only mean

one thing. But, the image of light means many things. Goodness,

purity, sight, understanding, safety, and judgment. John?s use of

imagery lets him say a lot in a short letter.

If images mean many things all at once, how do we know which?

What stops us from twisting an image or taking it the wrong way?

The rest of the Bible stops us. We read every part of the Bible with

the rest of the Bible in the background. John describing God as light

isn?t a phrase sitting alone that we can capture and turn to our own

purposes. It is plugged into how the Bible uses the idea of light

everywhere else. I listed several meanings for God is light, and all of

them come from the Bible.

Genesis 1, for example. The first thing God says is ?Let there be

light,? and there is light. God sees that the light is good and

separates it from the darkness. Genesis teaches that light comes

from God, and it is good, and it is divided from darkness. Light and


God is Light

"Let there be light!" - Genesis 1:3

darkness are used as symbols for good and evil all

through the Bible. When John says God is light, he

means God is good.

Or have a look at John 1:9. ?The true light, which

enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.? If

you read the chapter, you see that the true light is

Jesus, and it?s associated with entering the world

and giving light to everyone. Light spreads light.

That is its nature. Jesus spreads light in a world

that needs it ? a world of darkness. ?God is light

and in him there is no darkness? teaches us that

God has sent his light into the world. And we need

it. Unlike God, there is plenty of darkness in us.

But, light isn?t always a happy thing. Jesus uses it in

Luke 8:17 to describe God?s knowledge. God is light

because nothing is hidden from him. He does not

have the darkness of ignorance or forgetting.

Repeating that ?God is light? reminds us that God

knows all of us; actions, words, thoughts, and

feelings. We may forget all the little bad things

we?ve done, but God won?t. One day he will drag us

into the light, crack open our hearts like an egg,

and find either the light of Jesus or more darkness.

God is light. He is goodness, and radiance, and

knowledge. And so much more.

A New Year.

A New You.


t is now the second

month of the year; I

believe it?s a fitting time

for us to pause and

reflect on how we?ve

been keeping up with our ?new

year?s resolutions.? Are you still

on track or have you given up

hope? Perhaps, you have never

believed in making new year

resolutions. Well? you?re not


In 2018, a survey that was

conducted in America found that

the three most common

resolutions made were:

1. to eat healthier;

2. to exercise more;

3. to save more.

Sounds familiar? A third of the

participants responded that they

had not bothered making any

resolutions at all ? probably the

more realistic option, given that

statistically, 88% ended up failing


All of us desire to better

ourselves, don?t we? That?s why

new year resolutions are such a

big hit. A new year symbolises a

new beginning. We approach

each year with a steely

determination to make the year

count. However, when December

greets us, we find ourselves

disappointed once again at our


So, why are we so enthusiastic

about making resolutions yet

struggle to keep up with it?

Numerous studies have

investigated this phenomenon

and, not surprisingly, it often

boils down to the lack of

perseverance. But, here?s the

reality: simply telling ourselves

to have more perseverance isn?t

going to cut it. We need a

paradigm shift, hence the title ?

?A New Year. A New You.?

We?ve heard it said that ?life is a

marathon, not a sprint.? We

frequently treat resolutions as a

sprint. Thus, it?s not surprising

that we get exhausted halfway

through, especially when ?life?

takes over. So, how can we set

ourselves up for victory and not


I?d like to propose three simple

steps that would hopefully help

move us along.

1. Ask: ?Why??

We may have great goals, but

unless we have the conviction to

do something differently and

understand why we need to

change, we are likely to fall back

into old habits. Reflect by asking

yourself: Why is this goal

important to me? (and be

honest). Internalising the ?why?

can often help us to persevere

when we are tempted to give up.

2. Be account able.

An accountability partner plays a

crucial role in helping us move

forward when we are stumbling

along the way. They check in on

us, challenge us, support us and

strengthen us when life gets

tough. Being vulnerable and

transparent is never easy, but

the reward is priceless.

3. Invit e t he Holy Spirit t o

sanct ify us int o His likeness.

Goals are great, but it is easy to

miss the bigger picture. In the

midst of achieving our

well-intentioned goals, we often

neglect our own growth as a

person. Let?s come before God,

be it through prayers, fasting, or

simply waiting on the Lord, and

ask God to reveal to us areas in

our lives where we need a

desperate growth or a

makeover. Then, invite the Holy

Spirit to begin the beautiful

sanctification process in us so

that our heart?s condition

remains in check, and that we

may grow to become a more

accurate reflection of God?s love

to a broken world.

Let?s take on the remaining of

2019 with the confidence that as

we partner with God and

humbly yield to the Potter?s

hands, He will renew us from

the inside out day by day with

the promise of 2 Corinthians

5:17: ?Therefore, if anyone is in

Christ, the new creation has

come: the old has gone, the new

is here.?

Happy New You!

Be honest, what impressions do you

have of us, Aboriginals?

That's what the young lady asked my

wife. My wife hesitated for a while...

She reluctantly replied that people had educated

her to have a very negative perception towards

Aboriginal people.

I came from Malaysia to Perth about 12 years ago,

and right from the beginning I?ve been warned as a

student against Aboriginal people. My University

was in a suburb reputed for its Aboriginal

population, and also for its high crime rate. You?d

hear first-hand stories of students?quarters being

broken into, with laptops, cameras, cash, and other

valuables stolen. The first suspects are usually the

Aborigines, and as an international student, I

avoided Aboriginals at all costs.

Continuing the story of my wife?s encounter, which

was in AIME - Australian Indigenous Mentoring

Experience, in her university, the young lady

shared that she?d never feel looked down upon

while growing up among her own people. Only

when she moved to a primary school of mixed

races, she started feeling it. The glares, the gossips,

the mockery, the bullying. That was the first time

she started feeling ashamed of her identity.

From my experience, people ? especially

immigrants ? continue to regard the Australian

Aboriginal people as a less-than-desirable bunch.

Drug and alcohol addicts, dirty, smelly, rude,

loud? they have many labels, but these seldom

find their way into our everyday conversation,

because these labels are racist. So, we ignore, look

away, or worse, pretend they don?t exist. And so

often our perspectives can influence other people?s

perception as well, and this perpetuates the

marginalization of the Aborigines.

One of the invited speakers I was privileged to

hear recently was a young lady named Brooke

Prentis (you can google her). Brooke Prentis is

from the Waka Waka people in Queensland and is

a pastor, activist of indigenous rights, and

spokesperson for the justice team in Common

Grace, her organization. She has fought in law

courts against the discrimination so often suffered

by her people, e.g. when an innocent Indigenous

teenager faces prejudice, or is given an unfairly

severe prosecution.

Brooke appeals to the Christian community to

initiate Reconciliation between Indigenous and

non-Indigenous Australians by forming

friendships. 90% of Australians do not know an

Indigenous Australian. And reconciliation cannot

happen unless we become friends. Friends share

joy and sorrow, listen when you?re angry, share

laughter, and have fun together.

The Bible has a lot to say about friendship. ?Two

are better than one? (Eccl 4:9-10), ?a friend loves at

all times? (Pro 17:17), ?greater

love has no man than this, that a

man lay down his life for his

friends? (Jn 15:13).

Despite the horrendous things

that have been done to them, the

Aboriginals have already forgiven

because they cannot continue to

live in Australia if they have not.

They are not looking for

solutions. They are looking for

love, and we who are called

children of God are peacemakers

(Matt 5:9). Let?s make peace and

birth this friendship; the

friendship that is meant to exist

in the church, full of brothers and

sisters whom we love, where we

lay down our lives for each other.

Below are some small actionable

steps that we can take to reflect

God?s love in our relationships

with the Aboriginal people:

- ?Like? the Common Grace

page on Facebook and be

informed of God?s work

among that people.

- See Aboriginal people as

God?s beloved children, just

like us.

- Pray: Ask God to bring an

Aboriginal friend into your

life, so that we can show them

the love of God and build

mutual understanding.
