Yesterday after sabbath service, I was asked to interpret for the steadfast fellowship in church. It was a testimony session from 2 of our china brethren. Bro Tao shared about his life before conversion to Christianity, the world he grew up in and his post in the communist party. Then he talked about how did he came to know God, and his post conversion life. Bro Zheng shared about the resolution he made prior to arrival to Singapore. as well as how he grew weak and Gods chastisement to him. He also shared how he re-establish his faith and the church’s care and concern to him.

Interpreting gave me a chance to serve God once again. I started to recall the time i used to serve God more often. It seems to me that as I am busy being the hesitant prize fighter, I seems to have lost many chances to serve him. Sometimes i pray to God for forgiveness, and to move me to a place so that I can continue to serve him.

I was thinking to myself, what have we been busy chasing after? Have we forgotten what is the most important prize in our life? Are you very clear about what you really want in life? Or are we too busy fighting for the unnecessary things that only has a small impact that takes out too much of our time?

Lk12:19-21 reads
19 And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.”’ 20 But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’
21 “So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
