From The Pastor’s Desk


The first would be moving from the first half of 2020, and into the second half. Because of the pandemic of Covid-10, many people are willing to write off 2020 (not knowing when this menace will finally end, and the world will come back to some normality). For some, it is like a bad dream that must come to an end. For others, it means being realistic and finding a new line of work, even if it means eating humble pie.

The next transition will be on the church theme: Discipline Ourselves so as to Disciple Others. Then theme has been put on the back-burner since Rev Benny Ho’s inspirational messages on Mentoring & Discipleship the weekend (March 14 & 15, 2020) before MCO began in Malaysia. The Think Tank team recently met and are excited about reigniting the church theme in the midst of the people. On a personal note, I believe God has spoken personally to you over these last 3 months when we were locked down in our homes – reminding us that the most important relationship is our personal relationship with God.

The final transition will be opening the church doors again for worship service. Several people have expressed their sheer joy of coming back to their beloved church (building). Unfortunately, due to the lingering threat of Covid-19, the governmental authorities are setting very stringent conditions on how many people can attend one worship service, and setting age limits to prevent the very young and the very old to enter church (at least for the time being). God loves all of us and will never exclude us from God’s Kingdom based on age or any other factors – rest assured. Perhaps the one thing that the authorities are spot on is to highlight that the worship service is only meant for people to worship God and not to socialize after the church service is over.

Hence, we need to trust God to lead us patiently through these transitions and wait for better times ahead of us – especially the wiping out of Covid-19 from planet earth.

May God bless you.

Pastor Ashok

What is a Christian response to this Covid-19 pandemic that will shape our world for the months (perhaps years) to come and that is shaping our lives now?

As Christians, how ought we to respond? To feel? To think? To act?

One of the themes of the Book of Esther in the Bible is the providence of God. God is the true hero of the book and it is discernible that God lines up circumstances such that Esther is so well placed to act to try to save her people. Ironically, God is never mentioned by name in the book – yet God seems everywhere present behind the events…

In the Book of Esther chapter 4, Mordecai calls on Esther to stand up for her people, to beg King Xerxes to change his edict. She explains to Mordecai that such begging, even an approach to the King, may well cost her life. Then Mordecai messages Esther, “Do not think to yourself that in the king’s palace you will escape any more than all the other Jews. For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, “Go, gather all the Jews to be found in Susa, and hold a fast on my behalf, and do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my young women will also fast as you do. Then I will go to the king, though it is against the law, and if I perish, I perish.” Mordecai then went away and did everything as Esther had ordered him. (Esther 4:13-17)

Esther rises to the challenge before her. She steps out in faith. She succeeds in persuading the king, in saving her own life and that of Mordecai, and in saving all of God’s people…and in acting in ways that were consistent with her faith in a unique and threatening genocidal historic moment.

I want to suggest to you that in the midst of this coronavirus we find ourselves in a another threatening historic moment. It is not threatening genocide like it was for the Jewish people in Esther’s Persia, but nevertheless, Covid-19 is life threatening – to some of us, our neighbours, to those in our towns, our nation and indeed to the whole world.

We find ourselves in a moment of high anxiety for the world, and a changing cultural moment. We find ourselves in a time of fear – where people fear each other – because each one might be carrying this awful invisible virus around on their hands or on their breath.

What is ‘such a time as this’ calling us to do, to be as God’s people?

Is God providentially backgrounding circumstances for you, for me, for us as a Church…so that we may find ourselves in a position where we, if we act, perhaps at personal risk, may influence the course of events in a way that saves people and brings glory to our God?

I want to make some observations about this coronavirus ‘time’ that we are living through and I want to make some suggestions for you to consider about how you respond to ‘this time’.

Firstly, we need to have faith in God’s continued sovereignty. It’s easy to see God at work in hindsight or in other people’s lives. We can see God working sovereignly in Esther’s life. Right now, we need to see God at work between the lines of the events that are unfolding internationally as well as locally, and we need to see God’s sovereignty in our own little lives.

Secondly, we need to have faith in God’s goodwill towards us – as a world and to you and I personally. When we are going through trouble, it is a great thing to know that God is for us, and that nothing can separate us from His love … not even death. As it is written in 1 Corinthians 15:55, death has lost its sting for us. People around us are afraid of dying – but we do not need to be afraid. Of course, we want to live through this, we want to be spared from this virus. But even if we lose our lives to Covid-19…we still live. We already have eternity! We are God’s children – no matter what.

And let us not forget that we will all die a physical death one day – whether by a virus like this one or a cancer or another disease. But we will be raised again – imperishable.

Trust in God – you will have Him no matter what the future holds. We can say, like Esther did “If I perish, I perish” – not fatalistically, not without sadness, not flippantly…No, we say it filled with certainty for our future, we say it with hope – for that is what hope is – certainty of what we cannot see. As real as this invisible coronavirus is, equally as real is God’s love for us. And you and I may find that in this threatening moment our faith becomes stronger not weaker, our relationship with God closer, our confidence in His love, greater.

To point people to Jesus and to invite people into the hope that we have. Sometimes we find that it’s hard to get God into the conversation with our unbelieving loved ones, friends, colleagues and neighbours. The coronavirus is giving us an opportunity, an open door to step through with the Gospel. Normally, life is generally good. But now life is not good. People will question life’s meaning. People will fear the future. Be there for them…share with them what casts out your fear. Offer to pray for them. Be ready to listen to them and to gently move them closer to Jesus.

This is our mission – to live by faith, to share our hope and to be known for our LOVE. John Calvin once said “Duty must not be neglected, no more in epidemic disease than in war or fire”. Our duty is to love others. Christ calls us to acts of loving service.

Be bold in our own nervous way – just like Esther. Esther was like you and me. Her religion, even her race wasn’t something she had ever revealed. She wasn’t a risk-taking child of God – until God put her in a place where she could step out in faith and do something really worthwhile for God. What place has God put you in?

Charles Spurgeon put it this way: Every child of God is where God has placed them for some purpose, and the practical use of this point is to lead you to inquire for what practical purpose has God placed each one of us where we now are? We may wish to be in another position where we could do something for Jesus: do not wish anything of the kind, but serve Him were you are.

In a time of coronavirus – what practical purpose can we serve in it? We are the hands and feet of Jesus – what bold things can these hands and feet do in such a time as this?

Esther calls for a fast…we know that prayer and fasting always go together in Scripture.

Whilst culture and the world may change, whilst the way we do church in the coming months will change, the Gospel does not. God is still calling us to new life in Christ, to forgiveness and renewal.

Prayer Lists – June 28, 2020

1. Praise the Lord that He is the God of times such as this. Pray that for such a time as this, we will have faith in God’s continued sovereignty and know that He is at work between the lines of the events that are unfolding in the world, even though we may not see or understand what is happening. Pray that as we choose to trust in Him no matter what the future holds, our faith will become stronger, our relationship with Him closer and our confidence in His love, greater. Pray that we will be alert to the opportunities the Lord has opened for us at such a time as this, that we will be bold to reach out to people who are anxious and fearful because of the coronavirus, to listen to their fears, and gently point them to Jesus, and invite them into the hope that we have. Pray that we will reach out to people, not just with words of hope and encouragement, but also with acts of love, compassion and kindness. Pray that we will continue to have virtual meetings with one another, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 5:19-20).

2. Although the Covid-19 pandemic has made it impossible for group meetings in church and homes, praise God that we can hold these meetings via Zoom. Praise God for many of the Cell Groups that are meeting online every week. Pray that the Cell Leaders and cell members will continue to connect well with each other, and be edified and built up spiritually. Pray for several small discipleship groups that are also meeting online that the participants will be committed to meet regularly despite their busy schedules. Praise God for the Adult Bible Classes (one is ongoing every Saturday till July 11, 2020), that has blessed those who participated. Pray that more people will join these online classes. Pray for the Zoom meetings for the Sunday School, Youths, Boys’ Brigade and Dance Ministry, that these online meetings will be as effective and edifying as the face-to-face meetings they used to have, and that the children and youths will continue to grow in their faith and relationship with Jesus. Praise God for the Zoom Prayer Meetings that have been on-going since March 22, 2020, that many people have participated in these prayer meetings. Pray that the Lord will continue to sustain these prayer meetings as we continue to meet.

3. After almost three months of closure of schools due to Covid-19, 2,440 secondary schools in the country reopened on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 to enable 500,444 students sitting for their SPM, STPM and equivalent examinations to catch up with their studies. Praise God that the reopening of schools ran smoothly in compliance with the recovery movement control order standard operating procedure (SOP). Pray that the teachers and students will not be distracted by the new normal of school life, that they will be able to adapt to the new ways of teaching and learning. Pray that they will continue to be vigilant in complying strictly with the SOP in the days and weeks following, and that God will keep them safe and healthy. Pray for the government as it evaluates the effectiveness of the SOP in schools, and have wisdom to know whether the SOP should be changed and made stricter, of if the current one is good enough, and from there to decide when other students should return to school. Pray also for discernment for the Education Ministry to do what is best for the present school system as teachers are urging the ministry to consider a staggered timetable and shorter school hours.

4. Pray for the Orang Asli (OA) that comes under our church Missions Committee, during this time of the pandemic. Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance upon the two OA pastors, Pastor Rezo and Pastor Noraini, as they learn to cope with leading the adult and children’s worship services, without help from the teams from Klang Wesley. Pray that when Pastor Noraini teaches the children (as they are unable to go to school), they will be obedient and attentive. Pray for all the OA – adults, teenagers and children to be diligent in reading God’s Word and connecting with Him in prayer, so that they will continue to grow in their faith. Pray that they will continue to reach out to the pre-believers in their community, especially for such a time as this. Pray also for the OA ministry in Carey island: for good health for Pastor Rizal, and God’s healing upon those who are sick. Pray that the OA believers there will learn to depend on God, rather than on NGOs to provide for their needs. Pray for wisdom for our TRAC leaders regarding the re-opening of the OA students’ hostel in Raub, and that the students will be motivated to study on their own for the time being. Pray that God will bring a spirit of revival to the Orang Asli in Semenanjung Malaysia, and for a mighty harvest of souls among the OA community.

5. Malaysia has gone through a difficult time in 2020. In recent times, a few people charged with corruption have had their cases dismissed by the court. Pray that justice will be served in the future, that God will grant wisdom and courage to the people representing the justice system, and that the courts will thoroughly evaluate all the charges laid forward. Pray that people who have robbed the nation of money for personal gain will eventually be convicted and they will face the consequences of their greed and evil acts. Pray that money robbed will be retrieved by the Malaysian government through men and women who will pursue justice and righteousness at all cost.

6. Praise God that with regards to the daily Covid-19 new infections, Malaysia is now in a recovery phase. As such, the government has allowed several social and economic activities to resume in July, after they were suspended for about 4 months, including public and private swimming pools, kindergartens and preschools, social activities like weddings and other celebrations, cinemas, theatres and live events, meetings that include conferences and seminars. Pray that God will give wisdom and guidance to the authorities to implement detailed and appropriate standard operating procedures (SOP) for every single event. Pray that Malaysians will understand that the pandemic is not over, and will acknowledge our vulnerability by humbly complying strictly to all the SOPs set by the authorities. Pray that God will give wisdom and discernment to the government to know how and when to reopen borders for the business and tourism sectors to boost the economy in the nation. More than 50% of self-employed Malaysians are out of work since the MCO was imposed in March. Praise God that about 40,000 jobs will be created for jobless Malaysians through the Human Resources Development Fund’s National Economic Recovery Plan. Pray that God will grant the jobless creative ways and a willingness to work outside of their comfort zones to earn a living.

7. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to devastate the world, some countries are continuing to see a rapid increase in cases and deaths, some countries that have successfully suppressed transmission are not seeing an upswing in cases as they reopen their societies and economies, while other countries have experienced a spike in Covid-19 cases when they relaxed their lockdowns. All countries are facing a delicate balance, between protecting their people, while minimizing the social and economic damage. Pray for the governments of all countries to make wise and practical decisions between lives and livelihoods, to be careful and creative in finding solutions that will enable people to stay safe while getting on with their lives. Pray that the health authorities in all nations will double down on the fundamental and workable public health measures to contain the coronavirus and reduce the number of daily infections, and to also invest in strong health systems in their respective countries to protect their citizens. Pray that the public will also do their part to comply with the health measures to protect themselves and others, and to prevent the spread of the disease. Pray too that God will grant wisdom to scientists to understand the nature of Covid-19, and be able to quickly develop a vaccine to defeat the coronavirus.

From The Pastor’s Desk

After experiencing stringent restrictions for the first two months of MCO, things have eased a tad regarding freedom of movement, especially in this recovery MCO. The lessons that we learnt in March and April should not be forgotten, including the practice of wearing face masks while in contact with people, and thoroughly washing hands with soap and water.

Finally, churches and other religious places have received some great news. The government has allowed our churches to reopen for worship services, albeit following strict protocol (SOP). Several church members, especially the elderly, have told me how eager they are to come to back to church to worship God, and to put their tithes and offerings into the offering bag. The church (specifically the building or place where people congregate) has been the focal point for public worship. As much as we thank the Lord for 21st century technology that ensured online family worship in our homes since mid-March, we eagerly await to worship God together “in person”. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and it certainly applies to me. Thus, we shall begin our church-based worship services in July, 2020. Online / virtual services will continue via the internet as some will not be able to come to church.

Last but not least, I wish all fathers, grandfathers and spiritual fathers a “Blessed Father’s Day”. I appreciate the leadership role that all fathers have shown, especially to their immediate family members. Let the kindness and goodness of God flow into your lives both now and in the times ahead. May our heavenly Father nurture you with all His teaching that is desperately needed to navigate these trying times in the year 2020.

Worship@Home Online Worship Service – 20th & 21st June 2020

Title: A Father’s Prayer for Spiritual Power upon Church
Scripture Text: Ephesians 3:14 – 21
Speaker: Bro Yap Chee Kai

Watch Online Worship Service hosted at Vimeo

Posted in All Entries | Leave a comment


A Christian father’s first and greatest responsibility is to acquaint his children with God through Scripture. One of the reasons this is so important is because what children learn about God will put them in good standing throughout their lives, no matter what they do and where they go.

The truth is, it isn’t easy to be a good father. However, there are a few principles that can help. Successful Christian fathers have found that they and their families benefit when they follow the wisdom found in the Bible. Here are five principles Christian fathers live by:

They Make Time for Their Family
A good Christian father makes time for his family and anchors his family in Christ. He provides the needs of his family. No other teacher can affect a child as much as his / her parents. For this reason, it’s important that fathers teach their children both by their example and their words. A Christian father not only meets the physical needs of his family, but also the emotional needs of his family as well. The family turns to him as a support in all areas of need and he provides as best he can.

They Love and Respect Their Wives
A Christian father loves and respects his wife. He serves as an example to his children of what a loving relationship looks like so that they may also reflect it in their lives, particularly when it comes to their marriages. When a man enters into a covenant relationship with his bride, he commits to the responsibilities of loving, honoring and cherishing her. The strength a Christian husband needs in order to carry out these responsibilities flows out of his relationship with God. This requires dependence on God’s Spirit. They ultimately give his wife what she needs most – to be loved, honored and cherished.

They Give Loving Discipline and Commendation
The Bible tells us, “Fathers, don’t over-correct your children, or they will grow up feeling inferior and frustrated.” (Colossians 3:21). A Christian father doesn’t just discipline. He disciplines lovingly and commends his children in the process. No matter how frustrated or angry he gets, he expresses loving concern for the welfare of his children. This includes advice, correction, education and chastisement when needed. In addition, he recognizes that discipline is way more effective when a father commends his children regularly. A wise father seeks to make obedience desirable and attainable by love and gentleness. This enriches a child’s character as he / she will know when he / she is acknowledged and appreciated.

They Are Good Communicators
A Christian father should be a good communicator, not only communicating biblical principles to their children, but also being a careful listener. Instead of being a reaction waiting to happen, he has the ability to listen calmly without being judgmental. When children know their fathers will lose their temper quickly, they are less likely to communicate their inner feelings to them. But when they know their fathers listen calmly, they believe they are respected and that there is a genuine interest in what is being said.

They Apply God’s Practical Wisdom
A Christian father will apply God’s practical wisdom to his everyday life and guide his children in the same way. Deuteronomy 6:5-6 says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.” Fathers who are in a committed relationship with God can guide their children in the greatest relationship they will ever have – an intimate relationship with their heavenly Father.

The greatest example of what a father should look like is God, Himself. The Bible reveals that there is only one perfect Father who is God. The pages of the New Testament give us an incredible glimpse of the marvelous relationship between God the Father and Christ the Son. On three separate occasions, the Bible records these words of the Father to His Son: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased”. This is the kind of relationship fathers should strive for with their children. There is no greater source than God, the greatest Father of all. (LESLI WHITE)



How’s your morning been? Your week? Your month? We live in a world of crazy deadlines, commitments, and opinions. Sometimes it feels like we’re barely keeping our heads above water. Pause, take a breath, and soak in Ephesians 3:14-21. Paul’s prayer for the church of Ephesus is a wonderful reminder of how much more God wants for our lives than our short-sighted vision shows us.

This beautiful prayer depicts the wonderful relationship Jesus invites us to. The only way to experience the fullness of Jesus’ love is to let Him fully into our lives. God works through us not by pushing us around, but through His Holy Spirit’s guidance. The business of life can drown out the whispers of the Holy Spirit showing us how loved and cherished we are by our Creator. Paul prays we’re strengthened by the Holy Spirit, and we’re given the power to realize just how deep and wide God’s love is for us (Ephesians 3:16-18).

God’s love surpasses our knowledge and our circumstances (Ephesians 3:19). Our lens is infinitely smaller than God’s picture and His plans for our lives. God “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20). The best-case scenarios in our heads are nothing compared to what God promises to do.

We can pray the same prayer today — that every day we would invite Jesus further into our lives. When we do, we’ll start to see God do more than we ever could dream possible. Let’s not let the pace of our lives cause us to miss our “immeasurably more.”

• Is the pace of your life allowing you to reflect on the truths Paul highlights in this prayer? Why or why not? Does something need to change?

• How does knowing the depth of God’s love help you face your challenges?

• What’s the best-case scenario in your current situation? Reflect on the truth that God wants infinitely more for you than even this. (NEWSPRING CHURCH)
