Wesley Methodist Church Klang

Reconnect with God and People

John 13: 34 & 35
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Relationship is an essential aspect of our lives. We are made to be in connection with God and with one another. We are called to love one another just as Jesus has loved us. The anchor verse from John 13: 34 & 35 speaks about a new command that Jesus gave his disciples. It is important for us to notice that Jesus is speaking to his disciples of this new command. He is speaking to this group of disciples who have been with Jesus. These disciples are to love one another just like how Jesus has loved them so that others may know that they are Jesus’ disciples.

How can we as a church love each other so that others may know that we are disciples of Jesus? Firstly, we need to know and experience the love of Jesus in our lives. Our experience of the love of Christ should lead us to love others in the same manner. Therefore, as a church we are called to reconnect ourselves to God so that we may once again experience His Love in our lives. We are then called to reconnect with people so that we may share the love of Christ with one another. We want to be able to reach out to those whom God has placed within our circles of influences – be it our family, work and neighbourhood.

As such, we would be focusing our attention in knowing God. We need to know God in the way that Scriptures teaches us of Him so that we may learn to love Him. We then want to be intentional in connecting with other lovingly so that more will come to the saving knowledge of God

Sunday Morning Worship Service – 21st July 2024

Speaker: Ms Taeko Funaoka
Sermon Title: Humility and Trust in the Lord
Scripture Text: Psalm 131: 1 – 3

YouTube player

 

Introduction
Psalm 120 – 134 are titled as a song of ascents. They are also called Pilgrim songs. Psalm 131 is one of them.

Psalm 131
1. Humble submission before the LORD (v1).
2. Calmed and rested in the LORD (v2).
3. Hope in the LORD forever (v3).

1. Humble submission before the LORD (v1)

This humility does not imply low self-esteem; rather, it advises against acting as if we were stronger, smarter, or more superior than we actually are. It prevents us from having an exaggerated view of the self that may lead to self-delusion and deception.
We submit to God, giving up our ego, resisting the temptation of our self-sufficiency and our desire to act in spite of our limitations, knowing that He is God and He is in control.

2. Calmed and rested in the LORD (v2)

The Psalmist has calmed and quieted himself.
He placed himself in the care of God who is forever trustworthy, just like a weaned child on its mother. The psalmist is content, being with God and he rests in Him, trusting that God will take care of Him.
God’s tender care for His people: Deuteronomy 1: 30 – 31, Isaiah 46: 3 – 4

Reflection: What do you need to relinquish so that you may submit to God, quiet yourself and rest in Him peacefully as His child?

3. Hope in the LORD forever (v3)

The psalmist encourages the faith community to put their hope in the Lord both now and forever. In such relationship with God, we can experience a real hope and fullness of life as a community of faith, and point others around us to God.
Reference Psalm 130: 7 – 8

Sunday Morning Worship Service – 7th July 2024

Speaker: Rev Gaurri Maniam
Sermon Title: The Call to Forgive and Embrace
Scripture Text: Philemon 8 – 25

YouTube player

 

Introduction
Forgiveness is something that we need in life because all of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3: 23)

Explanation
Paul appeals to Philemon on the basis of love.

The grace of God is able to transform our lives.

We all need a “Barnabas” in our lives who believes and trust that the grace of God can indeed transform us.

In his appeal to Philemon, Paul embodies what Christ has done for him.

Final Word
Let us be ready to forgive and embrace people!

Reflection Question
1. As you reflect on your life, how has God brought about changes/transformation in your life.
2. Do you have a “Barnabas” in your life? Who can you be a “Barnabas” to?
3. Is there anyone reaching out to you for forgiveness? Are you able to forgive?
