Singapore Immanuel Church held its Sunday service on 18 August 2019. One newcomer, brother Joel who was evangelized by sister Zhang Zhen, the short-term missionary from china attended the service for the first time.
Pastor Drew delivered the sermon entitled, “I came not to call the righteous, but sinners”, taken from Matthew 9:9-13. He encouraged the members to live the lives seeking God’s mercy and forgiveness alone.
After the service, all the members had a reflection time together. One brother shared, “When I heard about how the religious leaders of the era behaved, I could see the sin of hypocrisy inside of my heart. I realized that I have been trying to do something for my holiness alone rather than relying on his love and mercy. I wish to repent deeply and truly understand the love of God”
