Kevin loo - Fix your form - face your fear
Just because you feel fear, it doesn't mean you succumb to it and eventually be paralyzed by it
Judg 6:12
You are made in the image of God!
You are beautifully and wonderfully made!
You are loved by Jesus!
You are the best specimen there is
You are more than able
You are you - celebrate!
Forsake your fear
Do not forget your fear
Disown it
v. 13
We blame God
Faith is not the absence of fear
Faith is the overcoming of fear
Fear limits God
In the middle of the night, if you don't know what to do, just sleep
v. 14-15
We blame ourselves
v. 17-22
Face your fear | face your father
v. 23
Peace be with you
Live fearlessly

All the saints of our lives - Kevin loo
Heb 6:12
The word of God is active and effective
A discerned of the thoughts and the intents of the heart
The why (reason) we say or do something is always more crucial than the what (action)
Perfect - teleios
Completion, maturity
Eph 4:11-13
This perfect man is not a personal journey but the whole community of faith coming to spiritual maturity
The word of God makes us perfect
Heb 11:1-3, 33-39, 40
Faith is so powerful that all the things that we see today were first imagined in the spirit of faith
A piece of our destiny's puzzle is with those leaders that have gone before us and another piece of that puzzle is with those who will be a part of our lives in the future

Pre-set - Keith Tay
Your calling has got to do with bringing God's deliverance and blessing into someone's life
If u have the ability to do something well in life, use it to teach others and coach them. This is ur purpose
What was meant to be much longer became shorter.
What was meant to be much shorter became longer.
What is going on, Lord?
We try to figure God out. The problem is that we want God to fit into our theology and cosmology
We can rely on the GPS so much that we forget where we're going
When we say thanks God for raising me up, I am in control now, God says "No child. You are not. I am in control."
Matt 19:16-25, 26-29
Jesus knew that the possessions had him and not God
Jesus smashed his theology about being a good man to be saved
Pre-set perspective about God; we should not have it
Christianity is never a comfortable religion
Character > comfort
It is not something you do, it is something u receive by grace through faith
Anything that drives you to have power and success without God will eventually destroy you one day
Mark 10:21

Keeping the faith - Isaac ooi
Heb 12:1-2
Matt 17:20
Matt 9:29
Heb 11:1
Rom 5:1-2
Eph 2:8
Heb 11:6a
Jesus is the perfect model for our faith from start to finish
Heb 13:21
We can only focus on one thing at a time
We need to starve out distractions and attractions. Instead we should feed our focus
Phil 3:13-15
Our faith develops as it goes through tests
1) Our faith goes through tests of difficulties
1 pet 1:6-7
Seasons of difficulties will test if we will still believe in his provision, protection and promises
Sometimes God calms the storms, sometimes he lets the storm rage and calms his child
Sometimes when you wonder why you can't hear God's voice during your trials, remember that the teacher is always quiet during the test
1 James 1:2-4
It's about being thankful in the problem, not thankful for the problem
Phil 4:4
Ps 23:4
2) our faith goes through the test of obedience
Obedience is an act of faith, disobedience is a result of unbelief
In keeping the faith, we need to allow out faith to grow. For our faith to grow, we need to go through tests of difficulties and obedience
Luke 22:31-32

Isai 49:1-7
God should be our motivation
He is for us, not against us
v2 - a time of preparation and hiddenness
Without any preparation, there can be no presentation
To be hidden and not sharpened, that is tragic
The greatest hindrance to our significance is not others, but ourselves

Who we are - Kevin loo
Core purposes: where are we going?
Love God
i) Our lives are anchored in the word of God where we derive all our values and perspectives of life
ii) Worship and prayer are the expressions of our deepest communion with our Father
iii) We seek to build a strong and tangible presence of God for the Holy Spirit to be made manifest in our midst
Think others
i) We want to see them as Jesus sees them
ii) We want to love them as Christ loves them
iii) We want to put others ahead of ourselves at all times
1 cor 10:24
How do we get there?
Relationship
A good healthy life-giving relationship must be right at the core in every endeavour imaginable in life
Someone worth doing it for (Jesus)
Someone worth giving it with (all of us)
Relationship precedes ministry
Being creative is our state of origin; our starting point
Being passionate is how we roll
Eccl 9:10
Passion develops resilience
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might
Being faith-filled is out footprint
Love is always the cornerstone
Discipleship
This is the very core of Christian maturity
Humility and honour in attitude
James 4:6, 10
Humility cures worldliness
Humility creates teachability
Rom 12:10
Phil 2:3
Discipleship at the end of the day ought to reflect Christ
1 Chron 29:14
Srewardship
Generosity as a way of life
We are liberated from being owned by what we own
Generous living is a way better proposition because it is in generosity that we can enlarge ourselves
Pro 11:24-25
Exo 36:4-7
Partnership
Excellence in service
Servant-leadership is a biblical model
Excellence is not perfection
Isa 1:19
Perfection is purely self-gratification
1) Be punctual
2) Be kind to one another
3) Be clean and tidy
4) Details determine destiny
5) Prepare for your ministry well and ahead of time
Don't just carry a title, carry a responsibility

Relationship builders - kong hee and sun ho
Love is like a big magnifying glass
Communication is the key to marriage
"Communicate" in Greek, koinonia means fellowship
Heb 11:3
Matt 24:5
Words have creative power to build up
Words have destructive power to tear down
Words go deep into person's soul
Pro 26:22
Communicate by words, gestures and spirit
Communication breakdown: 1) one partner doesn't talk anymore
2) We don't talk directly anymore
3) both don't talk anymore
4) Emotional and physical abuse
Total honesty!
Identify hurts and failures
Matt 7:3-5

A deeper life III - Kevin loo
We, so fearlessly wanting to be radical, have become radically restless
Ps 8
It is inevitable but walk through it. Don't stay there! The lord will be with us
Live the ordinary, everyday life well
An ordinary life is a deeper life
The revelation of the ordinary must have formed objections in the minds of many
Ordinary isn't mediocre
This is not a call to do less
When the result is not immediate, how long till we give up?
Talents can take us to new heights but it is character that can keep us there
The power of the ordinary debunks the law of average
There are no shortcuts to excellence in any area of life, and it is commitment to the ordinary that makes the difference
James 2:8
1 cor 10:31
Whatever we do, the end goal ought to be the glory of God
Excellence has its eyes on God and others
Perfectionism has its sights on approval
Performance is temporal
Position is eternal
The person you are behind the veil should be the person you show to everyone
Ordinary isn't passive. It is living out what we believe because we are a living sacrifice.
To walk with someone when their life is not doing well, that is the ordinary life we all go through. That is the Christian life
Trusting God is not believing in God for a miracle, it is believing in him even when that miracle doesn't come

Psalm 1: A deeper life - andrew Lau
Ps 1:1-6
Deut 6:6-7
To delight in the law of God means the law is not only the joy of the godly but his primary desire
Ps 112:1
To meditate = to be in deep thoughts
A deeper life is a knowing the way of righteousness, to come into the word of God, as a standard to our lives and immersing ourselves into God's truth so that we realize the depth and magnitude of how much God cares for us

Exo 25:8-9
Creation of you and I
Ps 139:13-14
The trouble is too many people are living their lives by default
Joel 2:28-29
It is given to us so that we may live a life that is beautiful inside and out
1) When it comes to the word of God, be revelational, not just informational
Rom 10:17
The degree of our openness to the Holy Spirit determines our level of transformation
Holy Spirit, take control, I surrender
2) when it comes to the people of God, be relational and not professional
Gal 5:22-23
Relationship precedes revelation
When it comes to the works of God, life be intentional rather than reactional
I do not discount the joy and pleasure surprises and randomness may bring. But my life cannot just be reactionary.
An intentional life requires us to plan ahead and that allows us to stay focused
I do not want to live on wishful thinking. I want to live on guided intentions
A life by design is contrary to a life by default

Venturing out - keith tay
Gen 12:6-7, 1-4
The Call
Heb 11:1, 8
The calling of God is often a calling to the unknown
Gen 11:27-28
Josh 24:2
Heb 11:8-10
What abraham ews struggling to see, and what he hoped for is to have a family of his own and to see a land where God is the architect and builder of that place
He wants to see the kingdom of God established in that city
The calling of God is a call to see his kingdom come and his will be done in this earth
Heb 6:13-15
Gen 15:5-7
Wheb abraham doubted, gid did not judge hin but encouraged. A godly relationship is where God inspires, not one where he condemns and judges.
Abraham was faithful because when he failed, stumbled, and fell as he most certainly did, he always got back up and clung to the promises
Rom 4:20-22
Gen 12:4
Calls from God are not always what we want to hear because it often requires leaving our comfort zone - it simply means change
God's desire is that you have a personal relationship with him, and know him in such a way that you will want to obey him and in this obedience you will be a blessing
The journeys of faith are the only way thay we can moce into tue future that God has for us
What abraham had to boast about was only that he had faith in God, that he trusted God
.
The reward is in the journey itself

Better, because of breakfast - Jeff lucas
Jn 21:7
Logic is often the first casualty when you're depressed
1) establishing our priorities - faith or fish
Fisherman peter wouldn't need to worry about persecution, romans or the church
Sometimes we don't want a purpose-driven life. We just want a life
2) resolving our regrets - sitting at the fireside
The last time the Greek word for fire is used is when peter is warming his hands
Jesus invites us to sit by the reality of our history
The grave of God does not minimalize or marginalize our sins
3) moving beyond pettiness - what is that to you?
Our passion can be hijacked by a culture of irrelevancy
Church is not Starbucks or a cafe, where we pick what we want in every way. Church is meant to serve Jesus and God. Whatever we think about others - what is it to us?

A better life
Ps 118:8-9
When we come to church we should get a new injection of faith. We should not determine our entire christian life based on our sunday morning
One of the impacts of the life of Christ is Christ in our life
What is a better life
A better life is a changing perspective
1. A better life is a self-governing life
Pro 16:32
Its easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission
It is harder to let it go than to pick a fight
A strong man is not one who can hold it up but one who can let it go
Gen 39:20-23
Acts 16:25-30
Its not what you do in the light that matters but what you do in the darkness
2. A better life values the intangibles

Arise & Build –
The Three Offerings That Shook The World
Rev. Kevin Loo
Hebrews 11:6
Hebrews 11:6
Hebrews 11:39-40
Hebrews 11:1
Hebrews 11:4
The first of the nominees of the hall of faith begins with Abel. And it has to do with an offering!
Abel gave in the faith zone and it pleased God. He believed that God is God and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Your marketplace is not your torture place
Every vision in life that is worth pursuing costs money
Deuteronomy 8:18
Greed is getting more for ourselves whereas big thinking is having more for others!
Both poverty and prosperity is a mindset!
Poverty
It is not the state of not having. But the fear of not getting which causes us to hold on to what we already have.
Prosperity
It is not the state of having. But the expectations and faith of increase which causes us to give from which we already have!
Hebrews 11:17-19
God rewards obedience, rewards those who believe in faith and those who diligently seek Him.
Genesis 22:16
The faith zone is always challenged by the comfort zone
Because the miracle is in the stretch
Between the promise of God and the fulfillment of that promise is the journey of faith!
Cain failed because of the personal gratification zone.
Abraham’s destiny was almost short-circuited by the comfort zone.

Face to face - Pastor andrew gray
Cause and effect - applying it to the word of God can be very limiting
We must be careful of always believing and always assuming biblical formulas will always apply
The power of God lives beyond earthly protocols
We figure out that we can't figure God out
Once you claim to understand God, he has become something that our primitive brains have completely understood
God sometimes does things that offend our intelligence; as does the bible
Josh 6
2 kings 3
Gen 1
John 6:1-11
We must not be so familiar with the bible's miracles that we dismiss them as nothing out of the ordinary "typical". Creating wine out of water is something we will never do.
Feeding the 5000 was hard work in terms of distribution. It was not some fantasy of fish and bread raining down. But the disciples had to keep coming face to face with jesus when refilling for the miracle to continue

God's will over mine - Isaac ooi
Jer 42:1-6
1) Good intentions are no substitute for obedience
Obedience = willing + doing
Don't use good intentions to legitimize disobedience
Jer 42:9-17
2) What looks good to you may not be good for you
2 cor 5:7
The things in the natural will be more attractive
Egypt also symbolizes the old way
Isaiah 31:1
Jer 43:1-3
3) pride will keep us out of God's will
Pride will cause us to turn away from God instead of turning to God
Ps 10:4
One of the best solutions to overcome pride is to serve

God rested from his works
Different people had a different starting point but none of them ended up where they began.
To be cool and relevant is the starting point but to lead someone to Jesus is the ending point
To preach the gospel and to lead someone to Jesus is the starting point. The ending point is to make disciples
To have a career is the starting point. Who you will become and what impact you will make in society is the ending point.

The things that Christ taught us II -pastor Kevin
1 cor 3:2
Let’s recap what we learned in Part I:
1) Man shall not live by bread alone…
Matthew 4:4
2) Repent
Matthew 4:17
3) Murder begins in the heart
Matthew 5:22
4) Let your “Yes” be “Yes”
Matthew 5:37
5) Love God, Love Yourself and Love Your Neighbour
Matthew 22:37
This week, we are going to continue studying the things that Christ taught and expects us to live by:
6) Do not retaliate
Matt 5:39
7) Love your enemies
Matt 5:44
This requires us to be at peace with God and ourselves as a Christian. It requires us to die to our own pride.

8) Charitable deeds vs Good works
Matthew 6:1
Matthew 5:16
Charitable deeds are referred to the giving of alms, helping the poor and needy.
Good works are how we live our lives and do our work.
Jesis deals mainly with the issues, conditions and intents of the heart
The heart of the matter is truly the matter of the heart.

9) Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven
Matthew 6:20
What are treasures in heaven?
It means treasures that will last for all eternity, such as a transformed life, a life lived for God, love… most of these are intangible.

10) The lamp of the body is the eye
Matthew 6:22
i. Be watchful with what you see
Philippians 4:8
ii. Be watchful how you see a person or something.
11) You cannot serve God and Mammon
Matthew 6:24
We just cannot commit ourselves to two masters. Either God is God or He is not.
1 Timothy 6:10
12) Do not judge
Matthew 7:3
Insecurity is a huge problem. It leads us to comparison and competition.
Insecurity causes us to find fault in others. Why? It is because we place our security in the wrong place.
13) deny yourself
Matthew 10:38
Mark 8:34

Overcoming overwhelming - Jin chong
John 16:33
Dan 1:1-7
1) Trust God
We have a hard time trusting other ppl and products becuz of past experiences and our natural defense mechanism is to simply not trust anyone
Dan 3:14-19
They refused to allow their circumstances to shape their beliefs but had their beliefs shape their circumstances
Ps 119:114
2) Stay in the fellowship
Dan 2:14-19
3) Open your eyes
If we are obsessed with stressful circumstances we will be overwhelmed. But if we are obsessed with Christ, we will overcome

The things that Christ taught us - Rev. Kevin Loo
2 Corinthians 3:2
1) Man shall not live by bread alone
Matthew 4:4
When a person begins to drift away from God, it is because he has first lost the passion and the tenacity for the word of God.
Joshua 1:8
Spiritual maturity is the understanding of the Word of God and allows it to work in our lives, correct our old and wrong habits so that we are able to do and live by the Word of God.
2) Repent
Matthew 4:17
Ezekiel 14:6
3) Murder begins in the heart
Matthew 5:22
Jesus is trying to teach us to deal with the issue in its roots
Murder begins in the heart. Very often it is an anger issue that resides deep within.
Jesus exhorts us that if we deal with the anger issue from within, make our hearts right, murder will be far from us.
4) Let your “Yes” be “Yes”
Matthew 5:37
Psalm 15:4
5) Love God, Love Yourself and Love Your Neighbour
Matthew 22:37
There are three things that Jesus taught us here.
i. Love God
How is that being expressed?
ii. Love yourself
Another way to love yourself is to allow yourself to receive love.
iii. Love your neighbour
Your pastor is not a sin-detector
A genuine love for God is expressed through our love for others. Spiritual maturity is not head knowledge. It has to be expressed. It is has to be shown.

Maximising strengths and minimising weaknesses - Dave gilpin
Disorders such ad adhd and autism can be used as assets
50% of ur weaknesses are a myth
The other 50% are reversible
1 sam 17:38-40
Weaknesses are more like non-strengths
University of london did a survey and found 1/3 of entrepreneurs had dyslexia. What they lacked in writing and reading, they made up for in speaking. The gift of the gab
1 cor 13
Whenever u see someone accelerate in the ministry, it usually comes forth from the cracks and faultlines of their life
Who you are is what you will be
Glory is built upon the fractures of a man.
