Sermon Notes

From Burden to Joy      

Speaker: Ps Ng Zhiwen
Scripture: Isaiah 8:20-9:7 (NLT)

Christmas and the Darkness

The Prophecy: People will Rejoice

This Child

Questions for Discussion and Reflection:

  1. What does the Bible passage (Isaiah 8:20-9:7) tell us about life and why it is the way it is? What is the burden that we carry?
  2. What does God promise He will do about the darkness?
  3. Think about this assurance: “The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!” How does this give you joy and hope?
Prayer Points

Our Church

Christmas Outreach
A Christmas celebration cum outreach event has been organized for 50 migrant workers from Terusan Recreation Center on Sunday, 10 Dec at 6pm. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will touch their hearts to come to Christ. 

Domestic Helpers Fellowship (DHF)
The aim of DHF is to reach every helper in every ZB family. We thank God that many families from both English and Chinese services invited their helpers to attend today’s gospel outreach party. We are expecting almost 80 domestic helpers!
Do pray that they will all turn up, and for the programme to proceed smoothly. Pray for clear interpretation of Ps Zhiwen’s message into Tagalog, Burmese and Indonesian, and for meaningful breakout group discussions on the message. Ask that the Lord will speak to every attendee through this event and that many would return to join the Sunday DHF bible studies regularly and to come to know Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

Overseas Ministries Visits:

1) Indonesia – Thank God for fruitful visits by our church team to various brothers and sisters and their families here. The team has been encouraged by the sharing of stories, food, fellowship and worship together. Pray for strength and courage for this community to minister the love and grace of God to those who have yet to encounter that.

2) Thailand (Radion Group) – Thank God for the smooth arrival of the group at this NGO’s centre in Thailand. Radion works to save vulnerable children and youth in this area. Thank God for times of culture learning and language preparation for their days of going out into the community. It was also good that the team were able to join the children who stay at this centre, in some of their routines (for eg, exercise). It was particularly nice that the team was able to join them in the Lantern Festival this week. Pray for their hearts to be moved and broadened by what the Holy Spirit is showing them from the home visits and interactions with various ones in the community.

Our World

Middle East – The need for essential items such as water, food and medicine is still greatly needed in Gaza during this truce. Pray that untreated disease, which has been increasing will be stemmed by restoring the Gaza health system. Diarrhoea and respiratory infections are already widespread in overcrowded UN facilities where almost 1.1 million people are sheltering (BBC news, 29 Nov). Pray for God’s mercy to be upon the vulnerable in Gaza.

Nepal – Pray for Brother Haoren from our church and S. Rai as they visit a partner in East Nepal next week. They will be spending some time encouraging a gathering of the partner’s workers through some time together in K town. Pray for good communication despite the language difference. May the Lord use this time to mutually bless both sides. The partner’s workers live in very high and remote villages here in Nepal, hence this gathering is very important for the encouragement of this small community of believers. Recently, there has been some unrest in Nepal. Pray for political stability, strong governance and an economic growth for this country.

Word in Season

The Reason for the Season!

By Ps Alby Yip

I’ve always believed that coincidences are God’s hand in the glove of history. It recently happened again. Our sermon series is now on Revelation. We paused our study at chapters 10 and 11 on 19 November. Then we commenced the Christmas evangelistic sermon series on 26 November which will lead us through to Watchnight Service on 31 December.

So, what’s the coincidence? “Coincidentally,” Rev 10-11 are where John’s vision turned from judgments to salvation. God in His mercy would not want those without Christ to face the full extent of His wrath. We read and heard that judgments alone are not enough to change hearts. We need people who will bring the Gospel to the world of non-Christians.

Hence, coincidentally, we are reminded in Rev 10-11 that the people of God, you and I, are part of God’s plan to reconcile the world to Himself. Then we start our Christmas evangelistic sermon series where we encourage all to reach out and invite our family and friends who have not accepted Christ to join us.

I really believe there is divine intention behind this coincidence and also God’s divine invitation to us here in Zion Bishan to be a part of His salvific work this Christmas season. I hope that will make even stronger the reason for the season for us. That the Christmas season is not just for meals and celebrations. Christmas is the season for the Reason. 

It is the season for believers to proclaim to unbelievers the reason for Christmas—Christ! The world knows Christmas as the season to be jolly. We Christians call it the ‘Season of Joy’. But what exactly is the basis of this joy? This evangelistic Advent series seeks to explore the necessary sorrow that everyone must first understand in order to fully realise Christmas joy.

Each of these sermons will explore an aspect of the suffering and sorrow that Jesus came to deliver us from and end with an invitation to experience afresh the great joy we have in our Saviour being born into this world. So, keep your prayer alive for yourself, and more so for those whom you know need Christ and the true joy that only He can offer!
