Servanthood: A Mark of a Believer
Written by Conrade Yap

“Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”  (Mark 10:43-45)


Subject: Servanthood is a Mark of a Believer


What defines a Christian? Is it someone who faithfully goes to Church? Not really, for anybody can go to a Church service without believing in God.


Is it then someone who says the sinner’s prayer? Not really, especially if the words are said without a believing heart.


Is it then someone who keeps the Ten Commandments, and regularly reads the Bible? Not really, for one can keep the commandments without even knowing Jesus. What then is a Christian?


If there is one word to describe a Christian, it is this word: Servant. For Jesus himself had said that he came to earth not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. He comes not with an attitude of “What’s in it for me?” but with a servant heart. They serve because Jesus served.

Possessions Must Not Possess Us

After they had further proclaimed the word of the Lord and testified about Jesus, Peter and John returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel in many Samaritan villages.”  (Acts 8:25)


Subject: Treat Things as Things; Treat People as People


On Sunday, we had our second sermon on the topic of money. Some people may be wondering whether the sermon series is beginning to talk about money matters, or whether the Church herself has a problem with money. Well, the truth is, on the week before, Dr Paul Stevens happened to be coming off a teaching series about money and was delighted to share his thoughts with us. This week, when I reflected on our series of sermons on Acts, the passage on Simon the Sorcerer sprung out and intrigued me. Whether you call it a coincidence or not, I preferred to call it a continuation.

The Barometer of our Relationship with God
Written by Conrade Yap   
Tuesday, 29 October 2013 20:27

Last Sunday, our guest speaker Dr Paul Stevens highlighted this question for us: “Is it true that how we relate to money is a barometer of our relationship with God?” He then went through the problem, the purpose, the potential of money, and finally homing in on an application of what has become a trademark of Stevens: Everyday Spirituality. We need to beware of the pitfalls of money as a power; be focused on the larger purposes of the Kingdom; and to use whatever possessions we have to win relationships for God. I think this pretty much sums up our application: Use whatever God has given us to bless, and bless, and bless others.
