Last week, the church announced that physical worship would cease until further notice. The news might come as a disappointment to those of us looking forward to worship in church. However, with the recent surge in community cases, it is right to suspend physical worship for now, in support of the government’s effort to curb community transmission.
“I am the Lord, and I do not change..” - Malachi 3:6a (NLT)
Life is filled with uncertainties and inconsistencies! We have our ups and downs, our good days and bad days. Sometimes we feel strong; at other times, weak. And our walk is not always consistent with our talk.
On the night that I heard the gospel of the kingdom preached by a stranger at a party, I found my answer to the quest for life after death. I also found peace and assurance. There I said the sinner’s prayer and accepted Christ. After leaving that session with no fear of death anymore, the newfound brothers came to visit me and did a lesson on repentance and salvation. They told me that in my conversion journey I must turn to Jesus and repent of my sins. “Repent” was a new word to me. My English was pretty bad and I didn’t even know what it meant. That night, I understood that “repent” means a change of mind. Today, I looked up the Greek dictionary of “repent” and found that the meaning is true.
