Bible Conference "A Renewed Church"

"A Renewed Church", this was not just another theme for this 9th Bible Conference, but it was a fresh grasp and comprehension to build a strong and close relationship and renew my daily walk with God. Indeed, this conference was one of the breathtaking conferences that I've attended. Great! More than 400 members from differenct places in Sarawak such as, Sibu, Bintulu, Serikei, Miri, Bintulu.... joined!.

I would like to share this experience that i've encountered throughout this 3 days! Enjoy reading!

"The church is a living organization that always need consistent renewal in its relationship with God. A church that does not get renewed periodicaly will have many members experienxing spiritual dryness caused by numerous factors, both internal & external. Therefore it is vital that churches should always be renews by bringing members closer to God both indivdually & corporately. "

In greek, the word "renew" comes from the words "To renovate".

The first time when i saw this book "The power of a praying Teen", it really caught my attention. Take a look at the cover of this book, it is eye-catching!! Youthful design. I plan to invest my own money to purchase this book. I don't mind if anyone of you buy it for me. Thanks thanks..haha
Anyways, forthose who think that you're no longer a "teen" anymore, don't worry! I've found another version of this book. Yea, take a look !!

"Purpose Driven Life", a book that i would strongly recommend you to read! I have read it, and it's awesome. Life-transforming. No regrets! Knowing the purpose of life that God has planned. If you have get one, go get it now! Don't tell or remind me that your birthday is coming soon k.

What have i learnt throughout this conference?.. check it out!

Day 1

-When God calls you, He will also equips you.
-Allow the spirit of God to be the driver of your life.
-We need to have time with God. and get refreshed and able to conquer the world with Jesus.
-If we walk with Jesus closely, you can't help but be humble and gentle.
-No one can say he loves Jesus, but still behave arrogance and prideful.
-Christian counseling happens when the person's mind is ready to change.
-Don't tell lie!
-The closer we walk with God, the more we need to be cleanse, because His spot light shines every ugly spot in our life.

Day 2
-Lets not keep our heart full of bitterness.
-(Like this quote) If we give the devil an inch, he'll become the ruler of your life!.
-What are the things that we can thank God for?
-Tough time never last, but tough people will always last!
-In our anger, do not sin. Never let our anger overwhelm us.
-Outter look will change and grow old, but inner look will get renewed each day.
-If a leader is dedicated and commited, his/her members will also be dedicated and commited too.


Day 3
-"Your attitude depends on your altitude" (John C. Maxwel)
-"We do not have revival beause we're contented to live without it" (Rev. Leonard)
-Don't be a chocolate Christians, they will melt under the hot sun!.
-Serve others first before serving ourselves.
-We might win an arguement, but we will lose a friendship.


********Looking forward to the next Bible conference!**********

I have my own answer. And i hope you have yours too. God bless!


---True Renewal comes from God alone.----

It is good to see youths like you caught up in God. You know, we have mass evangelist meetings. We have mass Christian concerts. We have mass people attending deliverance, healing meetings, speaking in tongues, the move of the Holy Spirit, and so on and so forth. In fact the way we are living now it is as if God is blessing us so much. Then how come the very people who encourage Christian mass meetings are the very people who are so full of corruption ? There are a lot of Christian politicians. But they are only promoting Christianity out of their political agenda. Not because of the move of God. Remember even Satan can turn himself into an angel. So are we really living in the age of God or somehow we are deceived into thinking so ? I hope you will be challenged to live a true Christian life. I hope Christians do not live in a lie thinking that by singing rock songs, clapping hands, lifting up their hands, shouting in tongues and showing supernatural stunts will get them to heaven if they are not true to themselves and true to God.
