Focus on Jesus
This morning, Pastor Richard Sim preached on "Focus on Jesus". This is also one of the ethos of our church.
He referred to Mark 10:17-22, this was the story of the rich young man who wanted eternal life, he told Jesus that he has obeyed God's commands since young. Jesus told him that if he wanted eternal life he has to sell all his property give to the poor and follow Him. But this young man could not because he wanted wealth as well as eternal life. He focused on wealth and not Jesus.
Matt 14:25-31 This was the story of Peter seeing Jesus walking on the water and he asked to join Him. Jesus told him to come, he did walk on water for a while, but sank when he lost focus on Jesus.
In both these stories, we can see that people get into troubles once they lose focus on Jesus. Pastor Richard reminded us that before the state election on 16th April, 2011 there were a few prayer rallies organized to pray for the state of Sarawak and the political situation. Now the election is over, we have to continue to focus on Jesus.
Pastor Richard said, Roman 8:31 "If God is for us who can be against us?"
