The Walls Between Us – Next CA!

Filed under: Please Note — campusalive @ 12:55 am

CA is back! After a one week holiday for the most of us, we return with a topic which concerns all Malaysians. As a new generation it is time we unite in love and harmony, and that means breaking the walls that separate us racially. Come and bring your friends for a night that will refresh, renew, and change you! See you there!

The Heart of Worship

1.Why do we worship?

1 John 3: 16, Jeremiah 31: 3, Ephesians 1: 5

2.What is worship? What is true worship?

John 4: 23

3. How do we worship God in all that we do?

1 Corinthians 10: 31, Colossians 3: 23, 1 Samuel 16: 7b, Isaiah 29: 13

4. “When we don’t feel like worshipping – continue to praise Him even in the toughest times like Job. When he lost everything, he fell to the ground and prayed, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. God gave me and God has taken away, may the name of God be PRAISED.” ~ Job 1: 20 – 21

“So then, my friends, because of God’s great mercy to us.. offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to his service and pleasing to him. This is the true worship that you should offer.” ~ Romans 12: 1

God’s Grace – The Importance of The Finished Work of Jesus

2. Do you know the difference between grace and love?

2 Corinthians 13: 14

3. Has God forgiven your past, present and future sins?

Hebrews 10: 12 – 14


4. When we feel inadequate, and have doubts about our righteousness, what does God’s word say about this?

Hebrews 8: 8 – 12, Romans 5: 17, Romans 11: 6, 2 Corinthians 12: 9

5. Since God is gracious and merciful, why did God condemn Sodom and Gomorah? (Genesis 19: 12 – 29) Is God’s grace conditional?

John 1: 17


6. If grace abounds to us, why did God give us the Ten Commandments?

Romans 5: 20

7. How does grace relate to the finished work of Jesus Christ?

2 Corinthians 8: 9, Ephesians 2: 8, Hebrews 2: 9

8. What should we do when we have sinned?

Luke 15: 11 – 32


9. If you’re facing bondages, addictions and even fleeting lustful thoughts, how does God’s grace liberate you?

Pray for bondages by letting each one of you proclaiming:

“I am the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD in Christ.”

“The old has gone, the new has come!”

End note:

‘Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.’ ~ Hebrews 4: 16

The Fire Within

Filed under: CA Updates — campusalive @ 11:08 pm

With the advent of third week of March, our ministry had managed yet another Camps Alive which falled on 11 March 2009. In the evening, those who were in-charge of transportation waited at the bus stops located at Cendana, Cemara and Akasia hostels. I was to wait at Cendana hostel whereas the other friend, Jonathan Wong had been waiting at Cemara and Akasia hostel for quite a long time that evening. So, we gathered around at around 6.00p.m. and set off to church after that.

The Campus Alive started at 8.00p.m. after everyone had had their dinners. That night, the number of attendees was not as many as usual. The cause for that was due to the fact that the seniors had exams and the ADFP students had their tests that day. All of us knew that attendance didn’t really matter. Campus Alive would still went on regardless of the number of people, and time will come to prove that Jesus can provide the number. Before the Campus Alive was officially started, we had a praying session. It was initiated by Larry and ended by Samantha. Next, Campus Alive was made alive by our emcees of the day, Graham Lai from AUSMAT and Fabiolla Lea from ALM. This was then followed by an opening prayer, led by Graham Lai.

After that, we proceeded to our next event, the gaming session. The game master of the day was Joy. She had proposed to us a game by which we all were separated into two groups and lined up. So, the first person of each group would have to think of and create some random yet so-called exaggerated movements to be imitated by the next person lining up behind. The condition here was that no one was supposed to look forward by turning around from each other from the front to the back. Therefore, the imitation was relayed from the first person to the next one till the last person. The last person would then be invited to come to the front for the performance of ‘relayed movements’. They were Jonathan Wong and Jonathan Chua. (Quote: “The battle of the Jons’ begins!” Joy) Well, as what we had seen, the movements were prodigiously distorted to an extent that they hardly showed any similarities with the original one, causing the people around laughing out their heads off! Next, the first people, namely Esmond, Joshua and Karen were also asked to perform the original version of movements that really showed a great difference.

The third event was the worshipping session, led by Larry. Larry himself was the guitarist and the vocal. The other members of the band comprised the drummer (Joshua), the keyboard player (Samantha) and two backup singers (Jonathan Chua and Hui Theng) So, Larry had brought to us a few worship songs, namely One Way, Praises (Everyone), For All You’ve Done, Amazed, Heart of Worship, Ku Mahu Cinta Yesus Selamanya. Certainly, it was clearly revealed that all people sang the worship songs with hearts for Jesus. The presence of His love has always been the avenue for us to love people and to be loved by people as well. The atmosphere was indeed teeming with all His love!

Then, this was followed by our next event, a speech by Elder Kien Yiak from Acts Church. He is truly a good and sophisticated speaker and all of us were greatly impressed by his talk. He preached to us about a lot of things in a humorous manner, and that was why the surrounding atmosphere was always full of laughter and cheering. In his preaching, we were told to behave in our real and sincere personality. We should act according to our characters and be debarred from becoming double-faced people. Besides that, he also told us that passion is all about giving, in accordance with what the bible has mentioned. He emphasized to us that Jesus Christ believes in us, and will always provide the clues and answers whenever we are confronted with problems. Therefore, faith is what we truly need and that is how we will be blessed. Apart from that, we were also being reminded that Jesus is able to give. If we can manage strong faith in Jesus, all our requests will be answered. He listens to our prayers and problems, and He does answer them. “God does answer us. He answers all our phone calls, SMS, and E-mails!!”, he talked to us in a creative way.

It was really a long period of time before he finished his preaching. The talk was started at 9.00p.m. and ended at 10p.m. After that, there were announcements from the emcees, saying that there would be a prayer meeting in Cendana, Akasia and Cemara hostels at 8.00p.m. the next day. Also, a Post Mortem would also be held in Cemara’s “Starbucks” on Friday.

Finally and practically, the Campus Alive was ended after the announcements, accompanied by the prayers led by Elder Kien Yiak. After that, we went to refreshment room for refreshment prepared by Amy while waiting for the transportation fetching us back to respective hostel. Usually, refreshment time is considered as the best time where the people can mix around and communicate with each others.

In Good Faith, We Come

Filed under: CA Updates — campusalive @ 9:42 am

It’s the third CA of the year. The ushers tonight include Qi Ying, Amy, Fabiolla, and Hui Ting. They welcomed us with grins on their faces and cheerful greetings of “welcome”s. The gathering kicked off with the jubilant shout of the emcees of the night, Boon Tung and Catherine. With their spontaneous speaking skills, the night was filled with laughters. After some greetings and shouts of “shalom”, an opening prayer was made, led by Boon Tung.

After the opening prayer is the game session. It’s a shoe game. We were asked to form a circle. And next, we were asked to take off one of our shoe. We were then required to tap that one shoe on the floor according to a rhythm. After tapping according to the rhythms, we need to pass the shoe to the person next to us and the tapping and the passing of shoe continues until we were stopped. Then, we were asked to find the owner of the shoe which we got and asked five things about them. There was this funny situation where lots of the shoes end up at one place and some people don get any shoe at all. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves with the game.

Up next was the worship session, led by Chewie and Betty, with Joanne as the backup singer. A few songs of worships and praises were sung, accompanied by the lovely tunes played by the guitarist (Chewie), bassist(Daniel and Esmond), drummer(Anderson) and pianist(Theng Theng). We could definitely feel the presence of God and His love in our midst during the worship sessions.

Then it was the video-watching session. The video was made by Lisia, Charis and Samantha. The main focus of the video was to talk about missions in campus. We are invited to sign up for mission and spread the love of God to people around us.

And of course, there was also a talk. The speaker for that night was Audra Darshini from the Fellowship of Evangelical Students. The talk given was about missionaries in campus. First, a bible extract from Jeremiah 29:4-7 was read. From the bible extract, the speaker had outlined four main points which can be related to missionaries in campus.

Jeremiah 29:5-7- “Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile.

The speaker asked us to get involved in the missionaries and be concerned to the people who need our helps beside us. We are also called to start our mission in campus starting now. We should be Christian witness for people around us to spread the word of God and God’s love. Truly like what the speaker said, we might only have 2 years in our campus but we should make full use of the 2 years to be involved in missionaries because if we are to wait till after 2 years, it would be another 2 years in another campus and another 2 years in another place again.

As usual, after the talk, the emcees will give some announcements regarding the cell groups and post mortems. After that, Beatrice came up and invited us to join Ops Gegar, a conference with the theme “Kerinduanku Penglibatanmu”, which is going to be held on 7th of March.

Finally, CA ended with refreshments at the refreshment room. Refreshments was made by J-Cyn and Siaw Hui. It was hotdogs, and coco de nata drinks. While taking the refreshment, we had the opportunity to mix around with friends and do so chit-chatting. There is an atmosphere of friendship and God’s love. It had been a very meaningful gathering. We can be refreshed and gain new strength in God. So, brothers and sisters in Christ, we are all called to be a part in God’s mission to preach His good news and love to the people around us. In short, this CA had been a great success. Glory and praise the Lord!

P/S: Pictures coming soon. :)
