Greetings in Jesus’ name!
SSMC is now into her 49th year! We were established as a church on 24th May 1975. We praise God for His constant faithfulness and amazing grace toward us all the time. It was amazing to see how God moved hearts of young and old alike to give generously and sacrificially toward missions at our recent Anniversary Gift Day. The amount of RM1,410,344.84 collected will be disbursed to field workers and missionaries, mission organisations and ministry partners in Malaysia and overseas for the expansion of God's work. Praise the LORD!


We were reminded on Gift Day to focus on outcomes, not outputs. Our BWJ Q3 readings will take us through the book of NEHEMIAH, HAGGAI, MALACHI, ESTHER and 1 & 2 THESSALONIANS. Reading BWJ is the OUTPUT. Obedience, transformation, growth and the approval of God is the OUTCOME. These happen when God’s truths and principles are applied to life. Jesus said, “Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.” John 14:21


Our goal is accountability not to the content (OUTPUT) but accountability for changed lives (OUTCOME). Let us remember this. Therefore, share with others what is happening in your personal journey. Support, encourage and inspire one another as we journey together in our community of faith.


At present, the pulpit preaching and the DG Word dovetails with BWJ. We need to decide to continue, or to break for a season, or to adopt some other study material all together. Please pray for the Leadership and Christian Education (CE) Team as we review BWJ. Grace and peace.


Love God, Love People, Make Disciples.
Pastor Robin Liew and the Leadership Team

How to read the Bible inductively?

1. Setting the context: “ABCs”

  • Author & Audience

  • Background — Period & culture?

  • Context — what comes before and after it?

 

2. What does the passage say? (Observation)

  • Read and reread the passage.

  • Who? What happened? What was taught? When? Where? How? Why?

  • Mark key words, repeated words or phrases, and commands.

 

3. What does it mean? (Interpretation)

  • What is the author’s intent in this passage? What is one principle or lesson the writer/God was trying to communicate?      - saying to the people of his day?

  • Look at other related scriptures

  • Use Bible study aids to get a clearer meaning of the passage as needed.

 

4. How does the principle apply to one specific area of my life? (Application)

  • What is the Holy Spirit saying to me in this passage? Ask Him.

  • What is one way I can apply the heart of this passage to my life?

  • What will I do differently because of what I’ve learned?
