“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4:32)
This verse speaks to each of us individually, calling us to kindness, compassion, and forgiveness. Yet, we must remember that this verse is not addressed to a single individual, but rather to a community, to the members of the body of Christ, to brothers and sisters in the family of God. You can see this corporate context in the phrases “to one another” and “each other.” Ephesians 4:32 envisions, not just a bunch of separate Christians who forgive, but also a community of forgiveness.
Wherever the people of God gather as the church, that fellowship should be characterized by forgiveness. This doesn’t mean minimizing sin. In fact, quite the opposite is true. Forgiveness is needed only when a wrong has been done. So, a community of forgiveness isn’t the same as a “make nice” fellowship that overlooks wrongdoing so as to “live and let live.” Rather, in a forgiving community, sin is taken seriously as a precursor to true forgiveness and reconciliation.
Yet, a forgiving community doesn’t focus on sin as an opportunity to judge, to condemn, or to ostracize those who have done wrong. A forgiving community doesn’t reward the proud who see themselves as less in need of forgiveness than others. Instead, a forgiving community is one in which all members are aware of their failures, in which all realize that they are lost apart from God’s grace, and in which all who have been forgiven by God extend that forgiveness to others who have wronged them.
Ephesians 4:32 holds up to us a vision of a forgiving community, where people fail as people always do, and where failure is not dismissed, but where failure is always a prelude to forgiveness.
As we seek to live out the biblical vision of a forgiving community, you and I have the opportunity to shape, not only our churches, but also our other communities. In our marriages and families, in our neighborhoods and friendships, in our workplaces and cities, we can choose to forgive as God has forgiven us in Christ, thus creating in miniature what God intends for all of his people.
Have you ever been part of a forgiving community? When? What did you experience? How might you help the communities of which you are a member become more forgiving? What could you do in your family, workplace, classroom, and church so as to live out the vision of Ephesians 4:32? (MARK ROBERTS)

WHY DO THE COURSE?
Parenting teenagers is harder than ever for most parents today. No role we undertake is more important than parenting.
We are the main influence on our teenagers’ future. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents can make a huge difference. Meeting our teenagers’ deepest needs, setting healthy boundaries, helping to develop their emotional health and teaching them how to make good choices takes skill and dedication. Taking time to reflect on our end goal can help us to build our relationship with our teenagers now.

Revival In The Mountains – The Ba’Kelalan Miracle
In 1987, deep in the jungles of Sarawak, in the village of Ba’Kelalan, home to the Lun Bawang tribe, you might have stumbled upon a young Chinese man from West Malaysia. He was an odd sight, so one would be forgiven for wondering what had brought him there, close to the border of Kalimantan, Indonesia.
The man is today Pastor Philip Siang, a man with a big heart for tribal people both in East & West Malaysia. Back then, Siang had a keen interest in what God was doing in the nation, and wanted to travel around to learn more. When he heard about a great revival that happened at Ba’Kelalan, he naturally decided to go there. When he reached his destination, he felt that he belonged there.
As a West Malaysian, he couldn’t stay long, but he soon returned there, this time as a student of the local Bible school He quickly integrated into the community and soon became an interpreter. He was a friend and brother to many who had experienced the revival, and was witness to its widening impact …….
But God “chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong” (1 Cor 1:27). As Siang further says, “God prepared the Lun Bawangs because of their simplicity. The Bible says, ‘Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.’ These are people who are meek. They are warriors who fight not with carnal weapons, but with weapons of righteousness, gentleness, goodness, faith, steadfastness, and truth.”
Siang has more stories of the Ba’Kelalan revival, but this article cannot hold all those stories. Since his early years there, he has continued to witness the wondrous workings of God wherever he goes. Yet Siang believes that there’s much more that God can and will do, be it in Ba’Kelalan or elsewhere.
“I’ve not seen nor heard the Lord personally, or touched Him personally, but I’ve seen His footprints, His works. And still I’ve seen very little,” he concludes.

Sunday, (Jun 28) – Pray that we, in Klang Wesley, will seek to live out the biblical vision of a forgiving community. Pray that all our members will realize the extent of God’s grace and mercy towards each of us – that He forgave all our sins, and having received His forgiveness, we will pass it on to those who have hurt us, and not ostracize, condemn or judge them. Pray that we will grow to be people who are more forgiving towards one another, and always be willing to seek reconciliation when we have conflict with one another. Pray that we will be peacemakers in our families, workplaces, schools and in our church.
Monday, (Jun 29) – The Community Services Committee will be making a trip to Sungai Way-Subang Methodist Church tomorrow night to observe their tuition project for needy children. Pray for journey mercies for the committee members. Pray that it will be a positive and inspiring experience for everyone.

Wednesday, (July 1) – Pray for the Nation: Pray against the dengue menace in the nation. With the rising number of dengue cases, a death toll of 158 this year, and new symptoms including organ failure, the disease is so prevalent that people can have dengue and not know it. Pray for wisdom for the Ministry of Health that it will be able to come up with effective strategies to combat the disease. Pray that the situation will not worsen. Pray that the rakyat will take preventive measures (e.g. keeping their homes and environment clean and free from stagnant water) to avoid getting the disease.
Thursday, (July 2) – XEE Semester 11 will be starting this coming Saturday, July 4, 2015. Praise God for all those who have registered, and pray that more people will come to learn how to share the Gospel effectively. Pray that the participants will be committed, and be able to attend all the sessions. Pray for everyone – participants, trainers and facilitators – to be blessed and be motivated to obey the Great Commission. Pray also for the Prayer Class (July 5 to August 23, 2015), that more people will be convicted to come to learn and to grow in their prayer life (both private and corporate).
Friday, (July 3) – Pray for TRAC: Last weekend, the Cell Group Ministry Conference 2015 (Theme: Mentoring Lives) was held in Ipoh, with more than 700 people attending. Pray that the participants will go back to their respective churches and find concrete opportunities to mentor others. Pray that adults will specially undertake to mentor youths or younger adults. Pray that church members will find a new freshness in helping others with their spiritual lives through godly mentoring.
Saturday, (July 4) – Pray for the World: Across the Middle East there are stories of people who have had dreams that have confirmed to them the way of Truth. Many have seen Jesus in a dream, and this has been a significant step in their journey to faith in Christ. Pray for many more people to have dreams and visions from God that will turn them to the truth and lead them to embrace life in Christ. Pray that these believers will be properly discipled, and they will become faithful followers of Christ who will also lead other non-believers to Him.
