Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 2 Tim 2:15

Joshua 1:8 instructs all of us to meditate on God’s word day and night that we might do according to all God has revealed in Holy Scriptures. I pray that we believe the importance of hearing God speak to direct our life; hence, the vital importance of the most repeated phrase in the book of Joshua is “the LORD said to Joshua”!

If so, we cannot escape the plain and obvious truth - today God still speaks daily through His eternal word where our Lord Jesus has declared not a word or promise will fall away without being fulfilled!

In a day of much confusion caused by fake news, further sensationalized and greatly amplified by the wide use of social media, will we commit ourselves to be workmen who handle the Word of God well and accurately? God’s plan is for us to read the Scriptures faithfully so that we are drawn to and abide in God’s truth in order to be inoculated from that which is fake, sensationalized or amplified.

In our Anglican tradition, the diocesan bishop is a sign and symbol of unity. As a guardian of the purity of the doctrines and practices of the Anglican Church (Faith & Order) it is our great privilege to welcome Bp Rennis who will exposit the book of Jeremiah entitled “Against Wind and Tide” in St. James’ this coming September and October. Come and hear and catch the heartbeat of God for the Diocese of Singapore as we learn together and fellowship with other Anglicans who will join in.

I want to encourage all cell groups, leaders of PCC and ministries to see this vitally important way to grow towards spiritual maturity in our milestone year of SJC40. This is the sole reason why we jumped on the opportunity to host this course in SJC as a way of celebrating our 40th anniversary. As a church we believe and want to place the appropriate value on God’s Word; it is the power to save and transform us from “Glory to glory!” (Rom 1:16 and Phil 1:6). SIGN UP TODAY!
