Pastoral Letter 24th March 2024

Pastor Wai Leung Chung

Thank God for the Cantonese student fellowship camp which was held last weekend (March 15-17).  The theme of the camp was “Return to Christ’s Love”, and the message focused on how believers should walk alongside brothers and sisters in their life’s journey with the love that is in Christ Jesus.

Living out Christ’s love as we journey with fellow brothers and sisters is a lifelong process of learning and practice.  In Philippians 2:1-5, the apostle Paul exhorts us with the following: “If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose.  Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.  Each of you should look not only to our own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.”

Indeed, it is by no means an easy task to encourage, comfort and have fellowship with others, and to have a humble heart and consider others as better than ourselves.  Whether it was at the planning stage or during the execution of different programs in the camp, I witnessed how God taught the committee members to encourage and have fellowship with one another first in the course of resolving differences and difficulties together.  When there were divergent opinions, they had to listen to others’ view with a humble heart to reach a consensus.  In the process, God also taught me how to walk together with this group of students and young workers, and to love them with the love of Christ.

In the evening program on the second night of the camp, we reflected on the true meaning of walking in fellowship with one another - what is walking in fellowship with one another and what isn’t.  These questions were meaningful and insightful, and until now, I am still reflecting on them.

Brothers and sisters, are you walking in fellowship with other brothers and sisters?  Do you love them with Christ’s love?  May God help each of us to grow in maturity, be filled with the love of Christ and press on to run the race ahead of us.
