Focus

I turn 63 this year, and have lived more yesterdays than tomorrows. This simply means I cannot afford to spend time on the peripheral issues in life. The need to be focused is greater now than ever. There’s tremendous power in a focused life. The apostle Paul says, “This one thing I do… Forgetting the things in the past, I press on.” He was not all over the place like so many Christians today – he lived a very focused life.  […]

Never, Never, Never Give Up!

There’s an interesting passage in Mark 7 where Jesus walked all the way from where He was in Galilee, and northward towards Tyre and Sidon. This was Gentile territory, in what we know today as Lebanon. It was a long distance by foot. He went there and seemingly all that happened was a Syrophoenician woman, whose daughter was demon-possessed, came to Jesus and pestered Him to cast out the demon from her daughter. And the Lord completely disregarded her request. […]

How Much Truth Can We Bear?

Jesus was a master at losing people. If you recall, there was a time when the crowds that followed Him were huge. Many were there because they had heard of the miracle of the multiplication of bread and fish, so they flocked to Him in the tens of thousands. But Jesus had no intention of allowing anyone to follow Him just for the benefits they could get. So He said the most provocative thing in Scripture, “Unless you eat My […]

Never Judge A Book By Its Cover

Many years ago, I was a young officer with a real estate company that had a wide range of properties for sale. A man walked in one day and asked if he could speak with someone about buying one of the listed properties. He was ushered into a meeting room and, when I walked in, seeing that he was clad in a T-shirt and Bermudas, I asked him rudely if he had the means to purchase the property in question. […]

Sitting on Papa’s Lap

Many years ago, while meditating on the Book of Jeremiah, what I read touched me so deeply I prayed each day for about a week, “Lord, make me Jeremiah”. At the end of the week, I was invited to a luncheon hosted by Transworld Radio, the largest Christian radio ministry in the world. The global CEO, a Welshman, was newly installed and was going to address the luncheon and everyone seemed eager to hear him. He was introduced, got up […]

What A Year 2020 Has Been!

I’ve been in full-time ministry for 30 years, and in all those 30 years, three clearly stood out as being earth-shaking. The first was 2001. What happened? 9/11. When those planes struck the World Trade Center in New York City, the world we knew changed forever. And I remember the exact moment I heard the news. Time stopped for me as I watched the horror of those twin towers collapsing. Life was never going to be the same again. A war […]

What Does Jesus Think Of Our Generation?

Acts 13:36 – “For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell asleep, was buried with his fathers…” The God we serve is a God of generations. He’s the God who calls the generations from the beginning (Isaiah 41:4); the God Who’s forever known as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; the God who blesses the generations. And He’s the God who calls us to serve our generation as He did David. Each generation is […]

Proud to be Singaporean!

Every year, on National Day, my family and I will sit in front of the TV to watch the National Day Parade live. As always, we sing the songs patriotically, laugh at the outrageous costumes, tear when the National Anthem is sung, talk about our National Service experiences, but one thing is for sure – we’re all proud to be Singaporeans. I’m a patriot and I love my country and my people, regardless of race, language or religion. In 1978, […]

Happy 25th Anniversary!

Andy Goh is a pilot who has been in Cornerstone for many years. This week, he posted on his Facebook page a bulletin from the church dated Dec 10, 1995. That brought back so many sweet memories. I love that he has kept this for over 25 years and, if you want to buy it, I hear he is selling it at $10,000. Good buy! Mint condition.  I recall in those days, our bulletins were photocopied, our songs were projected on […]

Unprecedented

In all my life as a believer, I’ve never seen what I’m witnessing right now – this Covid-19 crisis is certainly setting the Church up for the ‘Return of the King’! Everywhere in the world, there’s a spiritual awakening. It’s unprecedented. Various ministries are launching major global prayer initiatives, and seers are exploding with incredible visions. I believe this growing crescendo is building up to that one moment where we’ll see the spark light up a massive global revival. Yup, […]
