Following and Finding true refuge in the Great Shepherd
Eld Sim Kang
Our latest completion of the book of Romans has left us with much food for thought from His word which can guide us and guard our faith as we navigate the world that we live in. I was mulling over recent world events, changes at work and personal matters at home and Romans 5:1-2 specifically spoke to me about the reclamation of a life of peace, faith and hope of the eternal glory of God as we persevere in our walk in Christ amidst a turbulent world that we live in.
Having Peace with God through Christ: Our Inner Serenity
24 So God heard their groaning; and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. 25 God saw the sons of Israel, and God took notice of them. (Exodus 2:24, 25)
Since the beginning of this year, our huddle group comprising of several CG leaders has been meeting once a month for a time of sharing, encouragement and prayers in the context of small group accountability within the discipleship journey. Our current rendezvous location is a small pavilion on top of Kent Ridge Park which provides the idyllic vantage point for a panoramic view of the West Coast landscape amidst the chirping of birds and rustle of leaves in the early morning breeze.
I am reminded during my recent reading of the Bible from 1 Chronicles chapters 1-10 about our rich Christian heritage in God. It is a timely reminder as we have just celebrated our 170th Anniversary last year and will be greying and growing as a church by another year, come September2014.
