Depression and God

In mental health, depression is known as the common cold. It affects people across ages, backgrounds, and occupations. This means even Christians are not spared. But the word depression is a clinical term that we do not find in the Bible. However, the Word of God has many vital truths that can shed light on how we should understand it biblically. Come and hear Pastor Kenneth share God’s Word and his own personal experience with depression. Pastor Kenneth Goh preaches from Psalm 77, 2 Corinthians 12:7-10, Romans 8:31-39 and Ephesians 4:1-7, 15-16.

Create in Me a Clean Heart, O God

Why do we find it so hard to confess and take ownership of our sins? This well-known penitential psalm of David shows us what true repentance looks like. It reveals a good God who delights in purifying us for worship of him and to testify to his love, mercy and grace toward us through the Lord Jesus. Pastor Tan Sein Khoon preaches from Psalm 51.

A Love Song for the King

When we encounter a sense of abandonment from God and defeat from enemies, is it still possible to find hope and even joy? According to Psalm 45, the answer is a resolute yes. Come and learn from the psalmist how he found hope and joy in the King that God had anointed. Pastor Kenneth Goh preaches from Psalm 45.

The Greatest Bridegroom

The Psalmist pens a wedding song to the king that speaks of the glory and majesty of the Royal Bridegroom. When read throughout Israel’s history, Psalm 45 would gradually point from the historical Israelite king (monarchy period) to the Messiah who would come (exilic and post-exilic period). For the Church today, the psalm points us to the glory and beauty of Christ, the royal bridegroom, of whom the Church is his bride.
Come listen to Pastor Edmund Fong preaching from Psalm 45.

Downcast

The Psalmist struggles with feeling downcast, and because the Psalms is the Word of God to us, downcast-ness is a legitimate feeling to have before God! More than that, we are reminded what to do in times when we are downcast — keep hoping in God and his steadfast love. Pastor Edmund Fong preaches from Psalm 43:1-5.

The Rest That Comes from Knowing God

In our busy lives of rushing from point to point, following our busy schedule, Psalm 23 invites us to rest by knowing that God’s goodness and mercy follow us all the days of our life. Pastor Lim Luck Yong preaches.

Lying down in green pastures! A banqueting table spread for me! Cup overflowing! But what if it is the cup of the wicked that overflows? Pastor Adrin Muñoz preaches from Psalm 37:1-11.

Blessed Is the Man Whose Sin Is Covered

Suppression and an unwillingness to confess his sins led the psalmist in Ps. 32 to be in a terrible wretched state, while free and honest confession of his sin before God liberated him.

The Christ Forsaken?
