What Have You Been Up To?

If God were to play back a video of your day, week or month what would it look like? What would He find you doing? My wife and I have been so privileged to be ministering breathlessly from one church camp or conference to another during May-June. We enjoy Christian camps not simply for the…

Never Get Used to Living Aimlessly

The book of Ruth contains its fair share of this empowering Biblical truth: our lives are a series of divine appointments, not random coincidences or circumstances (Ruth 2). Naomi and her foreign daughter in law, Ruth, were both widows, destitute and utterly powerless. Then Ruth, a foreigner in Israel, embarks of a risky venture. In…

The Nobodies of this World

  We decided to capture this photo lest the opportunity passed forever. This unremarkable English-chapel looking building is the very place my wife and I met in kindergarten more than 50 years ago in our small town. She found me irresistible from the moment she saw me! That’s why the cheesy love sign we are…

How Secure Are You?

This is a photo of one of my cute young grandniece’s first visit to the dentist. Most of us know the acute apprehension of our first dental experience. It’s like a close encounter of the unknown and unforgettable kind. The sound of the “drill” and the sight of a masked stranger sticking strange instruments, instead…

Tie a Yellow Ribbon

Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris Chia 22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is…

The Voice of God

Word for the Day by Pastor Chris Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:16. You will hear many voices today calling out for your attention. Voices clamoring for your…

Show Some Family Likeness

Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris Jesus said: “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48) A sure way to mess up life and lose our way is to look in the wrong direction. Many of us look away from God. This is the essence of idolatry. In our modern world, we…

Just What the Doctor Ordered

Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris All of us have a weakness for keeping the letter of the law but flunking the spirit of the law. The doctor may have ordered a glass of wine but our deceitful hearts succumb to the hughest and most gigantic decanter of it! We are suckers for “looking the…

The Final Battle

Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris I saw this one-of-a-kind car on display at a shopping mall. It was a promo for the latest movie, Batman vs Superman. Wave after wave of crowds took photos. We did too – with some of our church elders – for the fun of it! Some who watched the…

The Goodness of Death

Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris If you visit Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay, you would come across this strange sign: “I am not dead. Just tricking you!” It refers to this African succulent plant which is copper coloured, looks dried out and dead. It feigns death to protect itself from fatal attacks by insects….
