Venue: Wesley Methodist Church Klang
Seminar Cost: RM25 per person (including lunch, tea & notes)

Are we Once Saved Always Saved or can we lose our Salvation?
Is our eternal security totally unconditional or partially conditional?
Is our salvation just a point or also a process of validating it?

Credible and courageous answer must be found as the consequences of false belief to this critical issue could be sober and shocking, for many who presumptuously think they are on their way to heaven may tragically end up one day in hell!

The Leadership Principles Of Jesus

The leadership principles which I admire most are found in the leadership style of Jesus. Jesus’ leadership is still impacting culture today.

Here are 12 leadership principles of Jesus that inspire me:

Jesus was willing to invest in people others would have dismissed. Consider the disciples. They were not the “religious” elite, yet Jesus used them to start His church.

Jesus released responsibility and ownership in a ministry. Consider how Jesus sent the disciples out on their own. No micro-management it appears.

Jesus had a leadership succession plan.  Jesus consistently reminded the disciples He wouldn’t always be with them. Of course, He was still the “leader”, but He left others to take the ministry forward.

Jesus practiced servant leadership better than anyone. The King of kings was willing to wash the feet of His followers.

Jesus was laser focused on His vision. Regardless of the persecutions or distractions, Jesus kept focused on the mission God had called Him to complete.

Jesus handled distractions with grace. When the woman who had been bleeding for 12 years touched His garment, Jesus stopped to heal her, even though He was headed to a definite purpose.

Jesus was into self-development. Jesus constantly slipped away to spend time with God.

Jesus was into leadership development and replacement. He very purposefully prepared the disciples to take over the ministry. He pushed people beyond what they felt they were capable of doing.

Jesus held followers to high expectations. Jesus was not afraid to make huge requests of people. “Follow Me” meant the disciples had to drop their agenda to do so. He told the disciples they must be willing to lose everything to follow Him.

Jesus cared more about people than about rules and regulations. He was willing to jeopardize Himself personally by breaking the “rules” to help someone in need.

Jesus celebrated success in ministry. He rewarded people generously who were faithful to Him and His cause.

Jesus finished well. Any questions whether His ministry was effective? Still working today.                                                              (RON EDMONDSON)

The Light Of The World

Even as a child, William Holman Hunt spent considerable time reading the Bible.

Born in London in 1827 to a Christian family, he was fueled by this inspiration, and began dreaming of becoming an artist. Through many struggles he realized that his only hope was in Jesus. And he felt inspired to use his talents to use art to teach Biblical truths.

Around 1850, he began working on a painting that symbolized what Christ meant to him, and the importance of salvation. He called the painting, “The Light of the World.” Hunt later commented that he intended “to show how the still small voice speaks to a human soul in the turmoil of life.”

He sensed how important light was, both to this painting and to the Christian life. So he painted at night, with only a lamp to give him light. He wanted to feel darkness, and the impact of light.

As author Cynthia Pearl Maus had described, in this painting, Hunt focused on light in two ways. There was a lantern in Jesus’ hand representing “the light of conscience,” revealing sin with a fire that “is red and fierce.” The other light was in His face. Hunt wanted people to understand that He was the “Light of the world,” and that He was standing at the door of their hearts, and ready to come in (Revelation 3:20).

Today, more than ever, the world needs the Light of the Gospel. Jesus is at the door, of people in every nation. He is ready to bring salvation, joy, and peace. He waits for men and women to invite Him in. Dedicate yourself to bringing this Light to the World. And seek to live in that Light!                                                       (INSPIRATION MINISTRIES)

Jesus: The Bread Of Life

Bread is eaten daily. Some fruits are available only in season. Some drinks are made only at holidays. Not so with bread. And not so with Jesus. He should be brought to our table every day. We let Him nourish our hearts, not just in certain months or on special events, but daily.

Bread can meet many needs. So can Jesus. He has a word for the lonely as well as for the popular. He has help for the physically ill and the emotionally ill. If your vision is clear, He can help you. If your vision is cloudy, He can help you. Jesus can meet each need.

Can you see why Jesus called Himself the Bread of Life?

I can think of one other similarity. Consider how bread is made. Think about the process. Wheat grows in the field, then it is cut down, winnowed, and ground into flour. It passes through the fire of the oven and is then distributed around the world. Only by this process does bread become bread. Each step is essential.

Jesus grew up as a “small plant before the LORD” (Isaiah 53:2).  One of thousands in Israel. Indistinguishable from the person down the street or the child in the next chair. Had you seen Him as a youngster, you wouldn’t have thought He was the Son of God. He was just a boy. One of hundreds. Like a staff of wheat in the wheat field.

But like wheat, He was cut down. Like chaff He was pounded and beaten. “He was wounded for the wrong we did; He was crushed for the evil we did” (Isaiah 53:5). And like bread He passed through the fire. On the cross He passed though the fire of God’s anger, not because of His sin, but because of ours. “The LORD has put on Him the punishment for all the evil we have done” (Isaiah 53:6).

Jesus experienced each part of the process of making bread: the growing, the pounding, the firing. And just as each is necessary for bread, each was also necessary for Christ to become the Bread of Life. “The Christ must suffer these things before He enters His glory” (Luke 24:26).

The next part of the process, the distribution, Christ leaves with us. We are the distributors. We can’t force people to eat the bread, but we can make sure they have it.                               (from A Gentle Thunder by MAX LUCADO)

TRUE WEALTH: Lessons From Proverbs 22: 1-4

PROVERBS 22:1 – A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.

Lord I remember what the disciples said about silver and gold… “Then Peter said, Silver and gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” (Acts 3:6). The “good name” of Jesus must be my focus… not silver or gold. Power developed through time spent with Jesus is of far more value than devotion to money making!

“Lord, You are more precious than silver.
Lord, You are more costly than gold.
Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds,
And nothing I desire compares with You!”

PROVERBS 22:2 – Rich and poor have this in common: The LORD is the Maker of them all.

Rich or poor…God, You are the Lord and maker of them all. Both rich and the poor need to be reminded of Your Lordship. The rich, who might be tempted to self-sufficiency and forget the Lord need to be reminded of You. And the poor, who might be tempted to covetousness and pursue riches instead of Christ also need to be reminded of You. (See Proverbs 30:8)

PROVERBS 22:3 – The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.

A wise man will be able to see through the dangers of materialism and greed and hide himself from this snare. A fool will pass right by this warning and have to be punished. How many people, Lord, have foolishly pursued the false promise of happiness through riches only to be punished in the end? Help me to be wise and avoid this trap.

PROVERBS 22:3 – Humility is the fear of the LORD; its wages are riches and honor and life.

True riches are humility and the fear of You, Lord! This brings true life…true honor in living! Possessions have a way of possessing…but pursuing You, Jesus, brings abundant life (John 10:10) and true joy! Many wealthy and miserable people spend fortunes in pursuit of happiness in life…real life is only in You Jesus! Help me to pursue You!

The 3 Things We Can Give To God In 2017

As we enter into a new year, here is something to remember: When it’s all said and done, we have three things we can offer God—our treasure, our talent, and our time. Each of these is given to us by God, and each of them should be given back in generous portions.

First, there is our treasure. I urge you to commit yourself to give faithfully and generously to the Lord in this coming year. Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:21). Whenever we put our money into something, we develop a vested interest in it. It makes sense to us that we would place our treasures where our hearts are. If we love reading books, or being entertained, or the latest technology, we spend our treasure on those things. And if our heart’s desires change, that changes where we put our treasure.

But it works the other way too: Where we put our treasures, our heart will follow. Do you want your heart to be in the things of God? Then put your treasures in the things of God! Develop a vested interest in God’s kingdom.

The second thing we can give to God is our talent. God has gifted each believer in different ways. Everyone has something to offer for the work of the kingdom. Romans 12:4-5 says, “Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are all parts of His one body, and each of us different work to do”.

Finally, there is our time. Let’s say that one day your phone rang and it was the president of the bank that you use. He told you that an anonymous donor who loved you very much had decided to deposit 86,400 pennies into your bank account each and every morning. At first, maybe that didn’t seem like a lot. But then you figured out that it was $864 a day. At seven days a week and 52 weeks a year, those pennies add up to almost $315,000 each year! But the bank president added one thing: “The anonymous giver said you must spend all of the money on the day you receive it! No balance will be carried over to the next day. Each evening the bank must cancel whatever sum you failed to use! Remember, what you don’t spend is lost.”

That may sound like fantasy, but here’s the reality: Every morning, Someone who loves you very much deposits into your “bank of time” 86,400 seconds, which represent 1,440 minutes, which of course equals 24 hours each and every day. God gives you that much to use each day. Nothing is ever carried over on credit to the next day. There is no such thing as a 27-hour day. It’s called time, and you can’t escape it. Time is ticking away right now. The Bible tells us to “redeem the time”—to make sacred and wise use of every opportunity.

Offer God your treasure, your talent, and your time. Live this year as if it were your last, because it could be. Make those minutes count!               (GREG LAURIE)

How To Claim A Mountain

Many feel inadequate to face the mountains of life. We learn significant lessons from Caleb as he claimed the mountain God promised. We find that he was sufficient for the task, and God provided him with strength for each demand.

I. His confidence never ceased: In Numbers 13 and 14 the spies were reporting after their return from the Promised Land. The minority report and the majority report contradicted each other. The majority declared the task impossible; Joshua and Caleb declared that it was indeed possible, in the strength of the Lord, to conquer the land. The people gave in to fear, and as a result they never entered the land.

Forty-five years later Caleb declared that even at 85 he was still bold enough to capture the land. Of course, he placed his confidence in God, just as he did 45 years earlier. He could remember God at the Red Sea and His provision in the wilderness. Even after the wilderness wanderings, he was determined to place his confidence in God’s power to see him through.

Caleb’s faith in God was not shaken by circumstance. If we are to move forward and climb mountains, we, too, must express our confidence in God and His ability to give us victory.

II. His strength never failed: Caleb declared to Joshua that he desired the hill country where the giants had been seen. He was confident that with the power of God he would be able to take this tough territory.

Each of us has a mountain to climb, spiritually speaking. The children of God always face obstacles in their lives, but with His strength we can overcome our mountains no matter how rugged the terrain.

Caleb had been through the difficult days of the desert. As a result, he had an unparalleled strength. Difficult times strengthen us as we trust God. We lose the fear that comes from hard times because we know that God has previously seen us through hard times. Caleb had witnessed the parting of the Red Sea, the fall of Jericho, the return to Ai; he was determined to stand in the strength of his God.

III. His God never forgot: Because of his willingness to tackle the tough territory, Caleb had enough for himself and his descendants. The benefits of his mountain climbing poured over into the lives of those around him.

When a believer faces a mountain and climbs to victory, his or her life is a blessing to others. God can allow the challenges, hurts, or heartaches in our lives to touch the lives of others. Jesus walked up the mount to Calvary to bring all of us into victory in Him. He has freely offered that gift of life to all who call on Him. Therein lies the power to climb the mountains of life!   (MICHAEL ROCHELLE)

Service Of Passionate Devotion

Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
(JOHN 21:16)

Jesus did not say – Make converts to your way of thinking, but look after My sheep, see that they get nourished in the knowledge of Me. We count as service what we do in the way of Christian work; Jesus Christ calls service what we are to Him, not what we do for Him. Discipleship is based on devotion to Jesus Christ, not on adherence to a belief or a creed. “If any man come to Me and hate not…, he cannot be My disciple.” There is no argument and no compulsion, but simply – If you would be My disciple, you must be devoted to Me. A man touched by the Spirit of God suddenly says – “Now I see Who Jesus is,” and that is the source of devotion.

Today we have substituted credal (relating to a creed) belief for personal belief, and that is why so many are devoted to causes and so few devoted to Jesus Christ. People do not want to be devoted Jesus, but only to the cause He started. Jesus Christ is a source of deep offense to the educated mind of today that does not want Him in any other way than as a Comrade. Our Lord’s first obedience was to the will of His Father, not to the needs of men; the saving of men was the natural outcome of His obedience to the Father. If I am devoted to the cause of humanity only, I will soon be exhausted and come to the place where my love will falter; but if I love Jesus Christ personally and passionately, I can serve humanity through men treat me as a doormat. The secret of a disciple’s life is devotion to Jesus Christ, and the characteristic of the life is its unobtrusiveness. It is like a corn of wheat, which falls into the ground and dies, but presently it will spring up and alter the whole landscape (John 12:24).
