Power of the Gospel

Sunday, October 21, 2007


God do have a way with us. Just as I was revisiting my thoughts on evangelism, both in this blog and with some friends, asking questions and challenging my own views on it, today's sermon does help me put a few things back into place.

Our invited speaker, Mr Steven Lau spoke from Romans 1:16 about the Power of the Gospel, the Preaching of the Gospel and the Pain of Life: that God can convict and save anyone who comes to him, we need to do the spreading and even in our own pain and struggles, God's word will be preached and shared.

He recounted the sinking of the Titanic of how the radioman got sidetracked from his job. Amidst all the messages of first class passengers he felt the had to send, he ignored messages that alerted them of icebergs in their path. And when help was needed, one other radioman in another ship was sleeping and did not know about the distress call. As a church, let us not be found sidetracking and be so involved in activities that do not include unbelievers. And never ever let us be found sleeping. Though we have so much pain in our lives, we can still show the love and grace of God, when we allow him to work in our lives. Even a bird in a cage sings.
