NT530 Exposition of the Gospel of Matthew (3 credits)
22 May–31 May 2019
 (starts on Wednesday, ends on the following Friday), 9.00 am-5.00 pm

Matthew was the most popular Gospel account in the early church. It is loved for its emphasis on how Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophecies, the visit of the Magi, the Sermon on the Mount, the invitation to the easy yoke, Peter’s walk on the water, the parable of the wise and foolish virgins, the guard at the tomb, the Great Commission, and many other unique passages. Matthew presents much of Jesus’ teaching in five great discourses, making his account a discipleship training manual for the church.

My Grace is Sufficient For You

God’s all sufficient grace.

Jacob Li and Liong Kwok Wai’s Mentoring Group recently gave us this reminder at Chapel, as we recalled and recorded recent instances of God’s grace on slips of paper, which we pasted together to form a big “GRACE”.

Piecing together all the testimonies also reminded us that altogether, they spell “GOD”, the One who has made all these possible.

May the grace of God indeed prove sufficient for you.
