Glorifying God

Our Vital Eye-Heart Connection

We visited our friends and were warmly welcomed by their dog, which is quite an expected canine response. What was amazing is that our friends’ dog, Fudge, is blind! We would not have realised it if they had not told us. Fudge’s blindness did not hinder her one bit from giving us a most hearty…

Clearing the haze

I woke to go for an early morning walk. I checked for the haze hazard (from the reckless slash-and-burn practices raging in the region) and it was mostly cleared. What a relief! It felt as if the greyness of life itself had lifted. Vision cleared. Normalcy restored. I quipped that I could my wife’s face…

Who are you battling?

This is obviously a posed picture. My wife battling a jurassic dinosaur in a child’s playground holds no real risk or mortal danger. Did you read of Jenna Evans of California who dreamt she swallowed her engagement ring while she and her fiancé were being terrorised by villains on a speeding train? She woke to…

Thanks for the “God Times”

We praise God for a blessed time as about 1200 of us gathered for a spiritual feast at our annual Church Camp. We thank God for the life-changing learning as we opened God’s Word to understand our theme of “Image, Bondage & Reimaging” (IBR). The main message about our “Image” is that we are wonderfully…

Good Friday: “Oh, to see the Dawn”

I love watching the sunrise. There is something magnetically attractive and soul-stirring about a sunrise. Maybe it’s the golden hue of a sunrise that warms our heart. Perhaps it’s the promise of a new day filled with the possibility of sharing love, pursuing dreams or accomplishing goals. Good Friday is a dawn unlike and unmatched…

A Strange Intimacy

I conducted a wedding recently where the couple did a strange thing. They prayed with their backs to one another! So, there they stood back-to-back not because they had a quarrel or they were getting cold feet! It was, rather, their personal and precious pact for the groom to not behold his lovely bride until…

What are you fussing or fretting over?

My wife and I were ministering in South Korea recently. At one of the train subways, she spotted a huge billboard of a K-Pop Star and got all good-humoredly excited about him. She started “fussing” and insisting we take a photo with him, or at least, the billboard. I obliged. Of course, that’s a lighthearted…

Are You Over-ruled or Ruled Over?

Are You Over-ruled or Ruled Over? (Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Christopher Chia) “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” (‭Proverbs‬ ‭16‬:‭9‬ ESV) One day I found our cat resting on our coffee capsules of our coffee machine. What was she thinking: “Was she giving George Clooney a run…

The Power of One

The Power of One (Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Christopher Chia) The greatest security we have to face the many unending insecurities of living in a fallen world is simple faith in the one and only true God who loves us. The salvation story of the Bible is that Israel of the Old Testament never…

He is Risen! But What Do We Rise To?

He is Risen! But What Do We Rise To? (Glorifying God devotions by pastor Christopher Chia) The Lord is Risen, He is Risen indeed. So what next? 1. We who humbly believe in Jesus rise to be graced as a new creation in Christ. We rise to be assured of our identity as a beloved…
