The Sacrifice of Christmas

The Sacrifice of Christmas

Selfishness is a very ugly part of human nature. Human beings have a fundamental focus on self. We want what will make me happy, often without consideration for others. But Christians are called to be very different. Not selfish, but selfless. Not self-serving, but sacrificial. At Christmas, Jesus provides the perfect example of humble, sacrificial service.

Guarding Against Selfish Ambition

Articles

“This is SPARTA!” This was the catch phrase uttered by King Leonidas as he took his heroic stand against the Persian invaders in the movie “300”. Since the movie’s release in 2006, his “gung ho” resistance and love for Sparta has spawned many imitations. People loved the film because of King Leonidas’ selfless sacrifice...

Prayer and the Gospel

Articles

There is no question of the importance of prayer. Onwuchekwa puts it well in his book, “prayer is something essential to our existence” and “prayerlessness is spiritual suicide”. Yet, although most Christians agree in theory that prayer is essential, in practice it is often neglected. Frequently, our prayers are sparse and sporadic...

Memahami Doktrin Tritunggal

Walaupun istilah “tritunggal” atau “triniti” tidak terungkap dalam Alkitab, namun konsepnya terbentang luas dan menyeluruh dalam Kitab Suci, bermula dari Kitab Kejadian hingga ke Kitab Wahyu.

The Speed and Efficiency Mindset

Articles

Let me confess from the start that the Covid-19 pandemic changed me in ways that I’m still growing to realize. Before the pandemic, I was quite concerned about efficiency and progress.

Biblical Theology of Race

Articles

Although Christians are familiar with the Biblical injunction that faith in Jesus Christ means, among other things, the rejection of racism (e.g., Gal. 3:28; Eph. 2:14), the history of Christianity leaves much to be desired of. The Holy Writ was abused by Nazi Germany to espouse anti-Semitism and the promotion of the Aryan master race...

Plans to study abroad, to change jobs, to move cities and even to marry have been crushed by a microscopic virus. When we stop and reflect, some of us might realise that even without this pandemic, life often isn’t...

In Romans 14 and 15 however, Paul shows us a gospel-centred model of unity, which contrasts strongly with how the world works. Gospel-centred unity is driven by love, pursues peace, and is sustained by hope...

Articles

After two years of pandemic, what a joy it is to be reunited with our loved ones again this Chinese New Year! As we do every year, we’re busy decorating our houses with red: red paper, red lanterns, red clothing, red firecrackers, and of course getting ready to hand our hong bao full of money to our loved ones. Why is the colour red so important to Chinese New Year? How can the colour red remind us of the lasting security and blessing we have in Christ?
