23 October - Yours Faithfully 2 (Rev Henson Lim)
Written by Annie Tan
Reflection and Review: Foundational verse on Fruit of the Spirit - Gal. 5:22. From Part 1 - our faithfulness is premised upon our faith in God. Hence, in order to grow faithfulness, we need to grow in our relationship with God and our certainty of His faithfulness.
Key aspects of these are conviction that leads to action. With this, we must know that it is not about what God can do for us but what God wants us to do in our relationship with one another. What does our faithfulness mean?

Our reference point begins with God, the chief cornerstone which is Jesus. It is not about us trying harder to bear fruit as it cannot be forced. Jesus is the Vine and we are the branches and only as we abide in Him can we begin to grow and develop the fruit as guided by the Holy Spirit.
Key proposition: Our faithfulness is premised upon our faith in God - to grow in faithfulness, we must grow in our relationship with God and the certainty of this faithfulness.
11 September 2011 - I.M. Patient 2 (Rev Henson Lim)
Written by Ng Wee BengRev Henson starts by revealing the uncanny paraphrasing (almost) of our Galatians 5:19-21 (works of the flesh) by a particular secular website (livestrong.com) that lists out 14 negative consequences of impatience. Amongst the many cited from it were these 3:
1) We often disregard relationships when things don’t work out.
2) We lose control and get angry, blaming those slow to change.
3) We waste energy from worrying about how slow things are changing rather than directing energy towards making changes.
4 September 2011 - I.M.PATIENT (Part One)
Written by Geraldine Koh
For the past 6 weeks, we have been learning about the first 3 flavours of the fruit of the Spirit. The bible verse that we have been mediating on is Galatians 5 : 22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. This week, we have come to the 4th aspect of the fruit of the Spirit and that is patience or long suffering as written in the NJKV above.
Looking at our society today, we live in a fast paced world. Buzz words include productivity, efficiency and time management. With technology, we want things even faster - speed and more speed. We do not want to wait and we get upset when it takes too long. It’s the same with relationships, we want it to happen fast and do not want to allow time for it to develop. Marriages are affected, the children are forced to grow up quicker and we get upset and impatient with people easily.
21 August 2011 - Resting in Peace Part 1 (Ps Andrew Teo)
Written by Catherine Lim
Hebrew word for Peace is “Shalom “. Shalom means much more than just absence of war and distress. It means wholeness, completeness, even prosperity in the best sense.
Greek word for Peace is “Eirene”. It talks about the harmonious relationship between man and with God.
