Servitude: It’s the Heart That Matters

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I testify.

It’s been almost eight years ever since I came to Taiwan to pursue a doctorate degree. Upon knowing that the school had offered an unconditional full scholarship for four years, I was enthusiastic to move to Taiwan despite my poor proficiency in Mandarin Chinese. Although I’m a Malaysian Chinese, I grew up in a non-traditional Chinese family, adopting mostly western values instead. At home, we mainly spoke in Cantonese and English. While I was in elementary school and high school, the medium of instruction was in Malay language. Unsurprisingly, I was known by friends as a “banana” (a person of Chinese origin with yellow skin but isn’t well-versed with Chinese language, particularly Mandarin Chinese). Since many people knew that I didn’t know Mandarin Chinese, they were indeed surprised and amazed that I was coming to Taiwan.

Where sin
and lust
thrived
Like a bee,
drawn to the radiance
Enticed by the fields
The efflorescence of temptation
To relieve the pain
How could I have been so blind?
So blind… Continue reading

Motivation to Preach

These verses in Luke 10 have left a deep impression in me.

Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves.” (Luke 10:2-3)

Harvest is referring to non-believers. Laborers are referring to believers sent out to preach to the non-believers. Sending you out as lambs among wolves means that it is not going to be easy when you go out to preach. There will be persecutions and all will not be smooth sailing. This made me think of my challenges in preaching. Continue reading
