A thought on Gen 3

Today while talking to my son about Gen 3, concerning Adam and Eve's sin, and how they were punished,  I realised 1 important point that was missing in the Bible narrative. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying the passage has error.

We read about how Eve was tempted, how they sinned, how they hide themselves from God, how they gave excuses, and finally how God  pronouce His judgement and the penalty they will face.  And ultimately they were drove out of Garden of Eden.

The point I am trying to make is that in the whole narrative, I did not see Adam and Eve confess their sins.  Never did they ask forgiveness, and even when they were drove out of Eden, they did not beg for mercy.

I realised, that is how I have behave when I sinned.  Most of the time, I would give excuses for the sin committeda.  I may even try to justify it.  I may even unwilling accept the consequences that brought about by the sin, but just like Adam, and Eve, not willing admit that I have sinned or ask for forgiveness or beg for mercy.

I wonder would things turn out differently if Adam and Eve would confess their sin and asked for forgiveness and even beg for mercy?

I welcome comments and your thought on this.

Church Theme For 2013

Latest News

In the year 2013, I have chosen the theme of "Walking in the Fear of the Lord" (凡事敬畏主)with the key verse taken from Acts 9:31.

 

31 So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied. - Acts 9:31 (ESV)

 

It is my desre that all members of the Church will learn to fear the Lord in our daily living, and to know Him personally, which will result in life that will attract others to Christ!

 

We have also start on a new series in our preaching, beginning in the Book of Hebrew.

 

This year we also work at establishing a team of co-workers who will be committed to serve in various capacity and even to take on some leadership roles.  Pray that the Lord will lead and guide us in getting the right persons into the team and to equip them for the roles they are going to take on.

 

May the Lord be glorified! Amen!

Two things to worry about

In life, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you are well or you are sick.

If you are well, there is nothing to worry about,

But if you are sick, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you will get well or you will die.
If you get well, there is nothing to worry about,

But if you die, there are only two things to worry about—
Either you will go to heaven or hell.

If you go to heaven, there is nothing to worry about.

And if you go to hell, you’ll be so busy shaking hands with all your friends
You won’t have time to worry!

How did Paul know what he knows?

Recently, in a bible study discussion, we were study 2 Thessalonians.  One question was ask, "How did Paul know What He Knows?"

To some, it is obvious that Paul had special revelation from God. 

However, I would like to know that are the scriptural references that will give us an idea, in regard to how did Paul get his revelation. 

Should you know of any supportive answers and scriptural reference, please feel free to leave me a comment. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Making Others Happy

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window.

The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.

Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.

Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats.

Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by.


Although the other man couldn't hear the band - he could see it. In his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days and weeks passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window.

The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.

He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.

It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.

The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you."

Epilogue: There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.

Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.

If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy.

Today is a gift, that's why it is called the present."
