Prayer Meeting and Sunday Service

The attendence of our prayer meeting this morning was very encouraging as more members were presence, including many of our Church leaders. One of our leaders shared on the importance of prayers, and he referred to the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. Many of us memorised these verses by heart, and may not consciously understand the implications of each verse. He explained, "Hallowed be Your Name", this is to soften our hearts towards God. "Your Kingdom come, Your will be done", God reign over all of us, His will be done not ours. In our current situation it is like 2 brothers who choose to worship God in two different venues. His will is also to prosper the Church. "Give us today our daily bread", He provides and He is going to rebuild our Church. "Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors", its time of forgiveness. Only God knows the truth because we human cannot know everything, only God knows all things. "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one", we are tempted to over react to things and also to sin. God is in control. He will meet all our needs. God reigns in us.

Sharing by Dr.Tommy Chung

Dr.Tommy Chung was the speaker this morning. The last time he came to preached was many years ago. He shared on Jude 17-24 and about revivals in Sarawak. According to him there were 3 revivals, one in 1935 amongst the Lun Bawan tribe, second 1973 in Bario, third 1984-86 in Bario where they witnessed fire in the sky.

Church should be built on God. Jesus said he builds the Church.

Early Churchs do not have pastors. Pastor then was a job description and not a position. Disciples were called apostle not because of their positions, but because of their work in evangilising and mission work. The early Churches were ruled by elders, this was to ensure there were checks and balance in the Churches. From his experiences usually churches get into problems due to a)money b)One person decide only c)cultic tendencies.

Jesus My Rock, My Fortress, My Saviour
