Dear family in Christ
We gladly welcome the Vietnamese Abba English campers to our church services this weekend, accompanied by our church homestay host families. Pls extend to them our most loving Christian hospitality. We also welcome home our church missionaries, Gerry & Ya Hui and their children Elizabeth, Kathleen & Zoe, as they rest and replenish during their three-month sabbatical.
When we were young curious children, we may ask some questions about the world around us. For example, how is it possible for a big heavy plane to fly in the air, or how can a huge metal ship float on the water. Some of us may also ask, “How did life on earth begin?” or “Who created this world?”
When we grew older, we start to ask more important questions about life. There are three questions commonly asked.
Firstly, we ask about our IDENTITY – “Who am I?”; “Does anyone care for me?”
Secondly, we think about our PURPOSE in life – “Why was I born?; Why am I here on earth?”
Thirdly, we wonder about our DESTINY – “What is my future like?”; “Where am I going when I die?”
The Bible provides the answers to these three important questions in life.
“Who am I?” – We are loved and created in the image of God. When we believe in Jesus Christ our Saviour, we become the children of God.
“What is my purpose in life?” – We worship & glorify God and enjoy God’s love & peace, and we share the good news of Jesus Christ with others.
“Where am I going when I die?” – We have an eternal home in heaven in the presence of our loving Abba Father.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
