Our Church Identity of Peace
Written by Conrade Yap   
Tuesday, 10 September 2013 00:00

Tomorrow will be September 11. Many of us will have flashbacks to that fateful day 12 years ago about the terrorist attacks in America. It is a solemn reminder of a world that is not as safe as we like it to be. Some of us may even harbour fears about worse things to come. Others wonder if our loved ones will be safe and secure in the not too distant future. Will we find peace? Will we find security? Will our neighbourhoods be safe?



We can pray for prosperity. We can pray for continued blessings. We can also pray for more peace. Yet, peace is not something that we simply talk about, write about, or meditate upon. Peace needs to be cultivated. More importantly, peace needs to be received from Heaven. Out of this heavenly gift, peace grows. Peace is less about what is happening outside us. It is more about what is growing inside us. The word “Peace” is also in the official name of our Church. It is one of the mentioned fruit of the Spirit in Galatians. It is often used in the Pauline epistles. It is what Jesus promised to give us. Peace is not simply a ceasefire or a truce, for such things are merely delaying an attack or getting ready to fight at the next opportunity. Peace must begin from the inside. This brings us to the next reminder. The “peace” we get is not just any different kind of peace. It is the “Lord’s” peace. It is from Jesus. It is divine.

The Art of Waiting
Written by Conrade Yap

We live in a culture of impatience. Rushing is very much a regular part of life. Just consider simple tasks like driving or grocery shopping, we can easily see examples of impatience. Drivers rush to beat the traffic light. People running to catch a bus. Shoppers trying to beat one another to the shortest line at Costco. A friend of mine even defined for me a micro-second as the time between the turning of the green traffic light to the first honk of an impatient vehicle behind us.

If we take time to think about it, we can sense a subtle connection between what is happening inside us and the behaviour outside us. In the Bible, something inside King Saul made him rush to do things outside of God’s will. Despite specific instructions from the prophet Samuel to wait, King Saul preferred to take things into his own hands, and to do things independent from Samuel, as if Saul himself is more important than everything else, including God. Instead of submitting himself under God’s timing, he put his own agenda and preferences above God’s timing and made the LORD unhappy.  As a result, Saul never really achieved peace throughout his reign (1 Sam 14:52).

Going to Church?
Written by Conrade Yap   
Tuesday, 27 August 2013 00:00

What do we do each Sunday? As Bible believing people, we faithfully say that we go to Church. Now, what does that mean? Is it about entering a building that is made of bricks and stones? Is it about the name of a place with the label “Church” outside? Not really.


What makes Church, a Church? The clue lies in the words of St Peter.


“As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him—you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 2:4-5)


In just two verses, we see at least five things on what Church is about.
