The Double Three-Fold Commitment

In today's OT class with Dr Leong this morning, he highlighted the verse which was his watchword when venturing to the US for his studies - Ezra 7:10 - this shall be my watchword too.

"For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord, and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel".

Also he shared G Campbell Morgan's booklet "Preaching" on the three essentials of a sermon - truth, clarity and passion.

So, this will form the three-fold "double track" commitment as we venture to RTS for our season of study and seeking the Lord.
  1. Setting my heart to study-practice-teach.
  2. Sharpening my preaching for truth-clarity-passion.
Please pray for us
That the Lord will lead my wife and I to be certain in our areas of studies and how it will eventually apply to the ministry back in Malaysia. Pray that we will study not for the sake of academic achievement but to be living out God's specific calling for our lives and to be useful for the Kingdom.
