Jesus Was Crucified, Died, and Was Buried

Though he had no sin, Jesus was crucified, died, and was buried in fulfilment of God’s word and to take away sin as God’s Passover Lamb. We can thank God for Jesus’ love and obedience at the cross because his death means that sinners who believe do not die but have eternal life. Sermon by Pastor Tan Sern Khoon taken from John 19:16b-42.

 

Going, Coming and Overcoming

In John 16:4b-33, Jesus teaches that as he goes away, the Spirit will come to convict the world and enlighten the apostles. In a little while, their sorrow at Jesus’ death will turn to joy at Jesus’ resurrection and they can take heart that Jesus overcomes the world. In our tribulation today, how can we also have joy, peace and courage? Come listen to the sermon by Pastor Tan Sern Khoon taken from the gospel John 16:4b-33.

God on the Move - From Jerusalem to the Gentiles

Gospel growth may bring along growth pains. Learn from Acts 15 and Singapore church history (1881-1900) how we can work out what is essential to the gospel and not hinder God’s mission due to our qualms. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from Acts 15:1-35.

The Lord, My Shepherd and Host

Hopeless End or Endless Hope? 

God’s utter judgment on Judah may seem like a hopeless end, but God’s unfailing promise assures his people of an endless hope. See how there can still hope when God judges us. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from 2 Kings 24-25. 

An Incomparable King?

2 Kings 18-20 explores if Hezekiah would be the perfect and faithful King God has promised to David, who would trust God and deliver his people. However we see Hezekiah’s faith falters, and only Jesus the Son of David trusts God fully. Pastor Sern Khoon preaches.

Signs of the End

The Lord Jesus shows his disciples the signs of the end, both in the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem and at the coming of the Son of Man. How are we to wait for Jesus to return? Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from Mark 13.

Following Jesus “on the Way”

How are disciples to follow Jesus "on the way"? Jesus teaches us his way, and we see a negative example and a positive one in Mark 10:32-52. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches.

Fantastic Beasts and What They Tell Us

In this final exchange, God speaks to Job about the Behemoth and the Leviathan. What have these fantastic beasts to do with God's justice, and why was Job's final response accepted by God? Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from Job 40:3-42:6.

Wake Up, Sluggard!

The writer calls his readers not to fall away, but to build upon what they have learned about Christ to move on to spiritual maturity. Learn how we may be assured in Christ and not sluggish in learning. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from Hebrews 5:11 to 6:12.

A Better Rest

How do we enter God’s promised rest? The writer of Hebrews reminds his readers of God’s  judgment on their ancestors, and exhorts them to strive to enter God's rest by faith and obedience in God’s Word through his Son. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from Hebrews 4:1-13.

A Vision of Powers

Daniel is presented with a vision of two animals in conflict. How can Christians see conflicts in the world, yet stay confident in God? Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from Daniel 8.

How Do We Wait?

How should we live as the kingdom delays? Jesus receives Zacchaeus into the kingdom and teaches about discipleship during the delay through the parable of the minas. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from Luke 19:11-27.

In or Out?

Jesus teaches his disciples about the kind of people whom God justifies - those who are steadfast as they wait, and are humble and dependent on him. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from Luke 18:1-17.

Faithfulness and Fulfillment

Joseph and Mary, Simeon and Anna, these are some faithful Jews who received the fulfilment of God’s promises. This Christmas, Luke tells us that the faithful who persevere in faith still receive God’s promises in Christ. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from Luke 2:21-40.

Our Works and Work

We either loathe work or love work excessively. How is the Christian to view our work and the biblical command to do “good works”? Titus 2:7-3:8 shows us that although we are not saved by good works, our work is how we worship God, witness to the world, and meet needs. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches.

Why Follow Jesus?

Jesus the Messiah healed three outcasts, showing he welcomes outsiders to the messianic banquet. Those who would be a part of it must count the cost and be committed to follow Jesus. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from Matthew 8.

Make Room for the King

This world had no room for Jesus the King from his birth in Bethlehem to his death in Golgotha. God has however made room for sinners by the gift of his dear Son Jesus Christ, and he warns us now to make room for Jesus. Pastor Sern Khoon preaches from Luke 2:1-7 and Matthew 2:1-23.

Order in the Family

In our fallenness, we rebel against authority placed over us or abuse our authority over others. Sadly, this disorder happens in our families as well. But the Lord Jesus has shown us the perfection of God’s order, so that we may know and obey God’s order in the family. Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from a selection of Proverbs.

A Final Word

 If Jesus’ words are trustworthy and true, and his return is certain and near, then how ought we to respond as we wait for the fulfilment? Pastor Tan Sern Khoon preaches from the final words of Jesus to John in Revelation 22:6-21.
