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….

My Favourite Things

(Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris) I love children. This is one of my grandnephews. He is a ball of energy and fun. Best thing about him is his contagious laughter. The littlest of things – jumping on a sofa, running  around a room, being tickled, playing with his cousins, listening to a story –…

First Things First

(Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris) I saw this eye-catching banner outside an eating joint recently. “Eat first, talk later” is such an unusual name for a restaurant. Yet, it is such a clever marketing ploy claiming its first concern is customer satisfaction above self profit. That is reason enough to try it once, at…

God is Pleased, Are You?

Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris “This is my Son, whom I love, with him I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17). Our dog Polo is easily pleased with himself as witnessed here when he slouches onto a couch. Or chases a ball. Or gobbles his food. What is pleasing in our world? What is going…

The Immeasurable Magnitude of God’s Love

Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris Chia My wife and I went for an outing with friends. We visited the spanking new National Gallery, which is worth a visit for its architectural makeover of the former Supreme Court. A must see at the Gallery are the “holding cells” where criminals are held before they face…

How Deep is Your Love

Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris Chia My eldest sister, Toshie , and her Japanese husband came to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with us recently. 50 years of marriage is no small feat. It is an even greater milestone in our increasingly commitment-deprived world. This, being Valentine’s Day, allow me to indulge in their…
