An Attitude of Gratitude

At this time of National celebration, I call upon all Methodists to a unique expression of our gratitude. The Bible reminds us of the prophet Samuel who, more than 3,000 years ago, set up a stone to celebrate the victory of Israel over the Philistines. Today the memorial stone which Samuel called “Ebenezer” (the stone of help) could still be seen. May we also catch the spirit of celebration by trusting God who is our Ebenezer, our hope for the nation.

Social Holiness

In his earthly ministry, our Lord Jesus preached and taught the truth, healed the sick, and delivered those in bondage from evil. He both proclaimed and practised God’s love. He found time to often pray to the Father in quiet and remote places far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Then he would return to the needy and sin-filled world to bring God’s love to broken people. He showed the way to combine faith and action, personal piety and social concern, love for God and love for neighbour (Mt. 22:37-40).

The God who became a Baby

A LEADER of the early church insisted, “I cannot see how a baby can be the God who created the heavens and the earth.” He was referring to Jesus who was born in Bethlehem. Later this church leader went on to relentlessly pursue his line of thinking and became responsible for a heresy.
