Mission Possible! *sunday's sermon by Pr. David*

Image Hosted by

*With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26*

The 3 P's!
1. Passion
2. Plan
3. Prayer

1. PaSsiOn Of GOD.


What does it mean to have passion?
~ intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction.
~ ardent affection.
It's having an intense emotion that compels action!

Yes! Isn't great to know that God is passionate about us? That we are creations of God, engraved in the palms of His hand (Isaiah 49:16) , made in His image & breathed by His spirit!

His unconditional love for us was the reason why He gave His life for us at the cross! that we may be called children of God! (John 1:12, Romans 8)

Passion leads to boldness. It makes the impossible seem possible. & yes! with God on our side, it is mission possible! =)
What do you have in your life right now that seems impossible? Do you have a passion about it?
Start there. Because passion will compel you to action!

Always remember that God's passion overides our no matter how weak you may be feeling, know that you can always draw strength from God & ask Him to give you the passion to live your life in God's plan!

2. PLaNs of GOD

"God's plans endure forever; His purposes last eternally." Psalm 33:11


Jesus's life was a great example of living according to God's plan. He took the lead, & came from heaven to earth to show the way!

Jesus said, "...If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself & take up his cross daily and follow me."*Luke 9:23

Jesus has paved the way for us, are we willing to follow Him?

In Acts 1:8, we're called to be witness for God!


How do we know God's love is steadfast? - By looking at the story of God's people.

How do we know God keeps his promises? - By looking at his people.

How does the world hear about God's salvation? - By hearing the testimony of God's people.

God's plan for us is to be ambassadors of His kingdom, to go to the ends of the world to make His name known! *Ephesians 2:10*

Read Isaiah 55:11 & you will realize that God's plan never fails!


3. PrAyeR PoWEr!

Prayer must always accompany our work. We must persevere in our prayer, as we wait on God to work in us. *1 John 5:14

It's important to pray before for preparation, during for power & after for protection!

Ps. David illustrated a story about a missionary whose family & ministry was greatly affected & dampened because of the lack of prayer by the church. The story portrays the importance of being consistent & faithful in upholding Christian workers through prayer!

*Ephesians 3:20. God empowers us!

When we come before God in prayer & give Him full control of a situation, we are acknowledging His sovereignty in that area.

Prayer is therefore an opportunity to lift up the needs of others to God. Let's continue to pray for unreached nations, missionaries, pastors, leaders & whatever the Spirit leads us to pray for!

Do not underestimate the power of prayer!! =) Haha, yes! & remember to keep each other in prayer too!!

*Matthew 18:19-20* Again I say to you, that if two of you shall consent upon earth, concerning anything whatsoever they shall ask, it shall be done to them by my father who is in heaven. For where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

*grins* yeah! so come for prayer meeting if you can!! ^^


wakakakaka! *bish* i just realize this was suppose to be a summary of Ps.David's sermon...& i think i ended up making it more complicated & around the bush. haha, just shot me!!!! haiyo...dun wan write adi!! i can only write long grandmother stories... haha, sorrie!! hope no one felt asleep while reading! =p

God bless!! Have an awesome week!

shortcut to heaven

i was driving on the road one fine morning with my dad by my side. earlier that morning, 'You are takng the wheels today' he said to me before i got into the backseat. 'umm..okay' i replied, close the door and took the keys from him.

while on the road, after picking up my brother from tuition, my dad asked me to take a different route home. noOoOoo.. i don't like new roads. what's wrong with the old route we usually take?? but i didn't say anything. i drove on but later i blurted out ' i can't remember the new route. you will have to show me the way' well thankfully he did. because if he didn't, God knows where we will be half an hour later.

after 10 minutes on the road, i felt much more relax. then i saw kota kemuning -2km- with a white arrow pointing left on the green sign board. just then my dad asked ' you know how to get home from here?' 'yea' i replied. thanks to the sign board

then this thought hit me. how nice it would be if instead of kota kemuning -2km- with a white arrow pointing left on the green sign board, it was eternal life -5 miles- with a red arrow pointing left on the probably a white sign board or maybe BEWARE: sufferings ahead -2miles-. then we would probably take a detour or turn in right.

life would be so much easier, isn't it?

all we have to do is just follow the sign borads carefully then we will be suffering-free!! ain't that great?? why wouldn't God think of such a brillant idea??


because this life is a life we live by FAITH!!

yeS! if we were to just follow signboards, then we need not be obedient to God. because we know that no matter which route we take, we are bound to find a U-turn and start all over. then there will be no need for Jesus to descend from heaven to earth to die on the corss for us for our sins now, would there?

every turn we make, every step we take, we do it by faith!! but even so, we need to be obedient to God and just be so one with His desires. if He desires us to take the road less taken , then wouldn't be be foolish to take the otherwise??

let's face reality. there is no U-turn in this life we live. ok, maybe there is but if for 60 years of our life we had been on the wrong route, then if we were to take a U-turn, what gurantee is there that we will be able to make it back to the start before we breath our last breath except by God's mercy and grace that He provide us with a shortcut. so even there is a U-turn in our spiritual walk with Christ, let's live as if there is none so that we would be able to take each step with utmost precaution knowing that one wrong step may lead us to great regret that may last for eternity.

let's tune our hearts to His desires and focus on Him alone throughout our walk with Him. let not any route seem greener than the one He desires us to walk on and cause us to stray away. let's live our life in total obedience to God. let's open our ears to hear and eyes to see God's heart so that we may not tread on the wrong path. let our heart desires be His heart desires.

*psst* this blog is in need of an update so i copy&paste this from my other blog >.< enjoy!
