Pastoral Letter 8th January 2023

Pastor Arthur Leung

2023 has arrived. Thank you God for bringing us to a new year.

When God created the world, He created the Sun and Moon so that our earth has time, four seasons, years, months, days, evenings and mornings. Only then will we have the concept of time and year. If there are no time and seasons human life is so meaningless. Every day, every month, every year is the same. Thank God for giving us a variation and a new start, so that we can have meaning in life.

2023 is another opportunity for a new start. We can plan again, learn and try again. If you did not do well last year, you can make a better effort this year. If you did not learn well, you can plan to study this year.

What are your plans for this year? You may think at the beginning of every year, there are a bunch of plans, but at the end of the year, it may be disappointing because we did not achieve them.

But this year, can we work harder? Relying on the wisdom and experience God has given us, we try to set goals that are more feasible and maintainable, because we know ourselves and God better than last year.

This year, after I prayed, I decided to establish a habit of reading every day, hoping to stimulate my thoughts. I will continue to have quiet time every day to get closer to God. I will learn some things that I wanted to study before, such as psychology and counselling. I plan to work together with brothers and sisters in the church, encouraging each other, with God’s help, to make disciples.

2022 was a difficult year for everyone, but in 2023 let us rely on God so that we can live a more meaningful and brighter year.

What plans do you have for this year? Please try to pray and see how God leads you to walk with God for a brighter 2023.
