CBCGL EM Update 08/28/2020

Dear EM family,


I pray that this email finds you well.

While sorting through some old photos, I came across this one:


The picture was taken at this year’s ping pong tournament. This event was meant to fundraise and benefit our youth short term mission that was supposed to happen this summer.

Because of COVID-19, the ping pong tournament turned out the be the last church-wide event. The subsequent badminton tournament was canceled due to a gathering ban.


I have not been practicing ping-pong since the shutdown. I am pretty sure my skill must be getting rusty due to the lack of practice.

While practicing and training makes perfect sense in the skill of ping pong, similarly, practice godliness helps our spiritual growth. Paul in 1 Timothy 4:8 instructed Timothy that, “for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.” (ESV)


What godly exercises do you practice? Prayer, scripture meditation, sabbath, confession, praise and lament, communion and fellowship, enacting the prophetic (living out your belief), sharing the gospel, and worship, to name a few.

Practice regularly is the key. A routine will help you make godly practices your habits. I hope that you will consider them seriously.
