Ministry of the Word in Malaysia

I’ve just returned from ministering God’s Word in a series of conferences across Malaysia (May 7-19). From Sibu, Kuching, and Kota Kinabalu in East Malaysia to the busy city of Kuala Lumpur, I shared in Revival in the Rubble conferences and Encountering Christ conferences. I found people hungry for God’s Word and faithful shepherds tending their flocks. At every turn I was received warmly and richly blessed by the kindness, receptivity, and hospitality of the believers of Malaysia. Here are a few random pictures from each city and its ministry.

Kuching, Sarawak (island of Borneo)

Kota Kinabalu, Sabah (island of Borneo)

O Thou in Whose Presence

I love this hymn. And this is my favorite arrangement of it.

That fourth verse–wow, what a glimpse of heaven! Just a look from Jesus and ten thousand angels break into frenzied rejoicing. But myriads more hang in suspenseful anticipation of His word. And when He speaks eternity itself cannot contain His voice, but rises to re-echo the praise due to Him who is Himself the very Word of God.

How privileged are we to know the sweet sound of His voice?

Take the time to bask in this rich expression of worship.

The Limits of Empathy and Sympathy

Solomon said, “The heart knows its own bitterness, and no stranger shares its joy” (Proverbs 14:10).

Longfellow observed, “Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.”

Pastor John Watson (pen name Ian Maclaren) counseled, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

“So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience” (Colossians 3:12, NASB).
