“When [the leaders] saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13 NIV)
I remembered telling myself when I was in University: “I will never be a teacher, a speaker, a preacher, nor a pastor.”
I guess convincing myself was never good enough!
Here I am now, doing the very things that I seemed to hate at first, yet I so dearly love doing now — all by the sheer grace (and mercy!) of God. The aforementioned Bible verse spoke to me in such a heart-wrenching manner. In fact, it was the first message I preached when I was installed as one of the pastors at GCF South Metro some years back. This text reminds me clearly of how unworthy and ordinary I am, and how great our God is. He alone can make what is impossible… possible.
Today, this humbling truth is the very motivation I ventured to put up this website. My deepest hope is that this can be a platform for me not only to share my two cents in this crazy world wide web, but to open opportunities to share a worthwhile message to a live audience — regardless the size — and inspire others to stand up for similar convictions I stand for.
I pray, over time, I gain the right to be heard.
