Meekness Is Not Weakness

2 Corinthians 13

      1. Meekness is not weakness (vv.1-4).

        ii) The life of the church follows the life of Christ.
      2.  Our faith is proven by testing (vv.5-10).
        i) What is the test? ii) What is the purpose of testing?

      3.  We rejoice for better things to come (vv.11-14).
        i) All things are for our joy.
        ii) God is strong to preserve his church

      4.  Reflections.
        i) Meekness is not weakness.
        ii) Our faith is proven by testing.
        iii) We rejoice for better things to come.


Prayer and Praise

Prayer points:

1) Kids ministry

Please pray for Vincy, Shing and Allison as they lead a small re-launch of children’s ministry. Pray that the parents of children who come along would be engaged in the spiritual upbringing of their children.

2) Pastor Search Committee

Please pray for wisdom and discernment that the right lay people in our congregations might be selected to join the PSC as we prepare to formally approach candidates to interview them for ministry positions. 

3) Service times

Pray that as a church that we may come to an agreement concerning service times for the English and Mandarin services so that together we may make the sacrifices and arrangements necessary to further proclaim the gospel to our families, friends and surrounding community.

4) Outreach and evangelism

As we look forward to the Mission Prayer Meeting on 31st July, and explore the Two Ways to Live gospel presentation in August ahead of a Mid-Autumn festival outreach event at the end of August, please pray that we would be equipped to know and tell the good news about Jesus to those God would bring into our midst.
