11/04/2021 – The great Commandment

Bahan Alkitab: Matthew 28:16-20

Tanggal: 11/04/2021


Ketika Yesus memberikan perintah. Bukanlah perintah yang biasa,tapi perintah yang berasal dari Tuhan yang sudah mengalahkan kuasa maut, yang udah bangkit dari kematian.
Tuhan mau semua orang yang sudah percaya kepadaNya untuk memberitakan Kabar Baik,bahwa DIA datang untuk menyelamatkan kita dari upah dosa;Kematian Yang kekal.
Berita ini seharusnya menjadi berita yang terindah yang bisa kita bagikan. Barang, hadiah, makanan bisa rusak, bisa kita tidak mau lagi, bisa kita lupa. Tapi Berita Injil tidak bisa rusak, selalu dibutuhkan dan malah semakin banyak kita mengerti sewaktu kita bagikan.
Ketika Tuhan memberi perintah, DIA juga memberikan pribadi Allah Yang ketiga yang terus menyertai kita. Roh Kudus akan terus menyertai pemberitaan Injil.
Tuhan Yesus juga mau untuk orang pilihanNya bisa mempunyai teman,keluarga,tetangga Yang berGereja. Tuhan mau orang yang sudah percaya untuk dibaptis Dan bergabung dalam Gereja:seperti anak2 sekarang ini.

28/03/2021 – God Makes Us More Like Jesus

Bahan Alkitab: Matthew 7:16-20

Tanggal: 28/03/2021


Jesus teaches the disciples, we can tell if a fruit, and if it comes from good or bad tree by just looking at the appearances of the fruit. Just like grapes, never came from thornbushes.

Same as, the way a person talks and acts show if that person belongs to God’s family. Good word and kind actions come from God who is working in that person’s life.

What do people think when they hear our words and see our actions? Does it remind them of the heavenly Father and show that we are part of God’s family?

And we have to grow in God’s family, because by that, we become more and more like Jesus, our heavenly Father. And ask the help from Holy Spirit to help trust and obey, so we can do what pleases Him.

14/03/2021 – Jesus says, “Serve Others”

Bahan Alkitab: Mark 9:33-35, Mark 10:35-45, John 13:1-17

Tanggal: 14/03/2021


In this world, we always think that to be the greatest mean we have to be the most famous, richest, smartest man. In short to be number 1. But Jesus said that whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant and whoever wants to be the first must be slave of all. He did not come to be served, but to serve, and give his life for the sins of his people.
One day, Jesus and his disciples got ready to celebrate the Passover Feast. When they arrive at the home, there was no servant who will wash their feet. So Jesus got up and wrapped a towel around his waist and start to wash his disciple’s feet. The disciple were surprised that their Lord would do the job of a servant. Why did he wash their feet?
Jesus said that He as their Lord and teacher, have washed their feet, so they also should wash one another’s feet. He was telling them to act like servants toward each other, be humble, ready and willing to help that most people wouldn’t want to give.
We have to give our time and effort to serve others. How can we serve others? As a child, your parents serve you in many ways. Cook a meal, wash your clothes, etc. You can serve your parents at home, for example clean up your room and your toys. You can also serve in church by joining choir, help your teacher at Sunday school, sit and play together with any friends. Remember Jesus says that we have to serve one another, be humble and help others.

Ayat Hafalan:

Matthew 6:12
Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors


07/03/2021 – Jesus says, “Forgive Others”

Bahan Alkitab: Matthew 5:9-12; 6:12; 18:21-35

Tanggal: 07/03/2021


One day Peter came to Jesus and ask: Lord, how many times should I forgive someone who sins against me? 7 times? Jesus replied: not 7 times, but 77 times. Then Jesus told a story to help his disciples understand that they have to keep forgiving.

There was a rich king who lend money to his servant. The servant owed the king a lot of money and had no way to pay back the money. The King showed mercy to him and forgive him. The servant went out and found his friends that owed him a bit of money. His friend cannot pay back the money. The servant didn’t want to forgive him and put his friend in jail. The King heard about this and called his servant back. He put his servant into jail until he can payback the money.

The King reminds us of God. God has forgiven us for all our sins because Jesus died for us. Since God forgives his children, we must forgive one another from the heart. We have to treat those who sin against us kindly and fairly and that we continue to love them. If we are the one who makes mistakes, say sorry doesn’t mean that everything is done, finished. We have to be responsible and be punished. We don’t repeat the same mistakes.

Bahan Alkitab: Luke 15

Darkness is a place where sin is hidden. We need the lights to enlighten the darkness so that we can see what sins are hidden inside our hearts. The lights are :
– God’s word
– Being honest with the Lord
– Being honest with man
All these will give light to all sins inside our heart.
Sin has its own roots and Rev Tong said it is called “motivation”
What motivate us?
God sees our heart.
We have to be truly sincere in everything before the Lord.
You may be able to lie to your mom or your dad but you can never fool the Lord.
He knows the motivation inside our heart.
When you commit sin, there will be 4 parties who knew it :
– You
– God
– Holy Spirit
– Evil
never think that no one know about your sins and your wrong doings.
Always remember, when you commit sin, even if you see there is no one around physically, God knows and sees it.
But if you repent and ask for God’s forgiveness, God promises that He is faithful and righteous and will forgive us.
Faithful = setia in bahasa indonesia = tidak berubah
Righteous = adil in bahasa indonesia = akan adili yang bersalah
Yes, God will punish the people who commit sin but since Christ died for us, then we are free, forgiven and not required to be afraid anymore. However, we have to be true in our repentance and not want to commit sin anymore. Only then will we be able to have holy and godly life. If we be honest to the Lord, it is like a patient who went to see doctor and told the doctor all his sicknesses. Please read again Luke 15 where you can see how great is the father who forgave his son who squander his money but the father with open arms, welcomes the son.
Always ask for God’s forgiveness and He will forgive you, and after that start again with God to continue to obey the Lord.
Live a holy life.
Be children of God because God is love and has died for you and also because we want to be His channel of blessings, salt and light of the Lord.
so that our life can glorify the Lord and many people will come to Him and be saved, like us.

Ayat Hafalan:

1 John 1: 9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins


21/02/2021 – Love your enemy

Bahan Alkitab: Matthew 5:44

Tanggal: 21/02/2021


God has given His command to love our enemy but do you realize that actually, we were God’s enemy before.
We do not obey the Lord. We do not respect the Lord but God loves us, his enemy and God even sent His Only Son to die for us so we can be saved. Therefore, we realized that God loves us so much and so we have our position is being changed from God’s enemy become God’s children.

God loves little children very very much. One of the great painting by Mr. Carl Heinrich Bloch shown how Jesus hold the little children dearly while looking at the disciple which from the bible, we knew, Jesus said “Let the little children come to me”

As children of God, we also was given a command to love our enemy, as God has loved us when we were not obeying Him. The source is in the bible where Jesus taught this on the Sermon on the Mount at Matthew 5:44.

Can we as Christian, follow God to do this.
Matthew 5:44
Love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you.

Here is 5 summary to remind all of us why we have to love our enemy :

C – CHILDREN of God – we have received God’s love and we want to channel God’s love to others and also our enemy

D – we are DIFFERENT – if we love others who loves us, what makes us different with the one who is non believer. They also love the one who love them, but since we are children of God we dont come from this world, but from the Lord, we want to copy our God we want to follow God’s command.

E – we were God’s ENEMY – but God love us and God even sent HIS ONLY SON to die for us so we can be saved. God loves us and especially little children very very much. As painting by Mr. Carl Heinrich Bloch that shown God’s love to little children who were God’s enemy

F – God love us FIRST – who love us first, who loves us very very much, is GOD so we, once again, want to follow God

G – GOD is love – GOD loves our enemy too. GOD gives sun and rain to them too. God died for them too therefore we have to love our enemy and pray for them who persecute you

Please remember too that :
1. if you love ME, you obey ME
2. pray and ask God’s help to love our enemy
3. pray for your enemy. Say their name in your prayer
4. if you fail, start again, don’t give up and keep obeying the Lord
5. we live to make God happy. It is God’s will and not our will
6. Joy and peace will be given to the one who obey the Lord

Soli Deo Gloria

All children know that their parents love them. How to they know that? By the act of their parents toward them. Example : parents take care of them since they were babies. Parents buy them present. Parents take them to school. Parents take them for holidays.

God loves His children. How do they know that God loves them? Jesus died on the cross to save them from their sin. God gives them parents and families and friends that love them. God takes care of them all the time.

Do children in Sunday School love God? Yes they all do.
How then other people know that Sunday school children love God?
By their act. Such as going to Sunday School to worship Him and listen to His Words. By praying to Him. By sharing with friends and siblings. By doing the things that God wants them to do.

It is similar as a tree. We know what type of tree it is because of the fruit that the tree bears.

People will know if we love God by the “fruit” that we bear. We have fruit of the Spirit to show others that we love God. We are able to bear such fruit because love of God is in our heart.

I John 4:7a
Love one another, for love comes from God.

In the Bible, there is a story about 2 persons that are totally the opposite.
The first story is about a young man who is very rich. When he was a little boy, he has 2 pouches. Everytime he did something good, he will collect it in bag number 1, which he put in front of him. Everytime he did something bad , he will throw it to bag number 2 which he put behind him. As time passes, he grows. He is getting bigger and taller. His 2 bags are also getting bigger. When this young man is old enough to work, he started to work and earn money. He uses his money to buy things that he loves, such as books, clothes, shoes, toys. All these he put in bag number 3. He loves all the stuff he has in bag number 3 and doesn’t want to be parted with them. He is thinking how he can live forever so he can enjoy all these nice things that he has.
One day, he met Jesus. He has heard people saying that Jesus knows how to have eternal life. So he asked Jesus that question. He also told him that he has been doing a lot of good things in his life and shows Jesus how big is his bag number 1. He forgot that he still have another bag, which is bag number 2 where he put all this wrong doing. He thought that will all his good deeds he exchange it with eternal life.
But Jesus said, “No. You have to give up your bag number 3. Sell those and give the money to the poor. then you can have eternal life”
This young man is very sad to hear that. He loves his bag number 3. No way he will let it go.
Sadly, he went home.
The second story is about an old lady who has no husband and children. She is very poor. She only has 2 coins in her pocket. During the time that she goes to church and it is time to give offering, she took out all the 2 coins and give it as her offering.
Jesus said to His disciple. This old lady loves God and trust that God will provide her. She is saved. She will have eternal life.
Jesus is willing to die for us on the cross so we will have eternal life. How should we respond to this? We should be thankful. We should love Him more than we love anything else that actually will faded over time. Nothing is more important than Jesus as our Saviour.

Bahan Alkitab: Matius 6:9-13

Tanggal: 31/01/2021


Tuhan Yesus mengajarkan kita untuk berdoa. Berdoa seperti apa yang Tuhan beritahu? Apakah kita bisa meminta segala hal yang kita mau? Apakah semua doa kita seharusnya dikabulkan Tuhan? Bolehkah kita kesal dan marah ketika doa kita tidak dikabulkan?

Tuhan tahu apa yang kita mau dan apa yang kita perlukan. Doa seharusnya bukan mementingkan apa2 yang kita mau, tapi harus mementingkan relasi kita yang boleh menganggil Tuhan sebagai Bapa Kita. Kita sebagai orang Kristen diberikan previllage Yang sangat special karena tidak ada diluar kekristenan yang boleh menganggil Tuhan sebagai Bapa,kita manusia diambilNya menjadi anak anak Tuhan.

Sebagai contoh, kapan Kita boleh datang ke tempat PM: Istana Di orchard? 2-3 times a year. Harusnya sangat sulit untuk bertemu dengan president atau PM. Tapi bercakap dengan Tuhan pencipta kita dengan berdoa bisa Kita lakukan.

Jeremiah 29:12b
