Sermons on John

Oozing Christians

Using the imagery of a sponge, Hsiang-Ling spent her sermon explaining to us how the Holy Spirit wants to commission us to be God’s salt and light in the earth. God’s willingness to give us this commission is evident from the Bible, but we must willingly receive it. “If we want to be ‘oozing Christians’,…

Love

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.” [John 15:9a] Jesus loves us as much as the Father loves Him. The power and depth of this statement are profound. In a wonderful sermon, Divya explained how this knowledge should motivate us to both abide in His love and remain obedient to His…

The Gate for the Sheep

In John 10, Jesus claims to be “the gate for the sheep” and “the good shepherd”. Through Him, we are included in God’s flock and have a personal relationship with our Creator. He laid down His life for us, His sheep, and we are to follow His example by laying down our lives in the…

(John 3:16) This message of love…

The New Covenant

In this special service, in which one of our adult congregation members was baptized, Peter reminded us that “God had always wanted a people of His own; a holy nation, a kingdom of priests. Not a people far off, quaking in fear at the bottom of a mountain, receiving the law on tablets of stone.”…

Christmas 2020

In this Christmas sermon, we learned how our lives are like houses with shutters, which we must open in order to let the light in. God does not force himself upon us, but rather desires us to love Him and take our places in His family.
