Key Text: Exodus 3:5
Description: It would be no wonder if an unholy God could love unholy men, but that the God whose name is Holy, could love beings so utterly sinful as we are, that is the wonder of eternity. There are many deep mysteries in the Bible, but no other so profuound as this. (taken from ‘What the Bible teaches’ by R. A. Torrey)
Preacher: Monty Simao, elder
Key Text: Ephesians 4:11-12
Description: Because this is God’s church, He has given us marching orders on how it should be structured and run. In modern times, we have allowed the idea of pragmatism to enter the church and have started adopting business practices and other unbiblical methods. Paul tells us not only the leadership structure of a church but also the purpose of the leaders and it looks very different from what we usually see today.
