There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

“The destination is less important than the company when it comes to the journey of our lives.”
– P.Joshua Choi
“And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ ” Matthew 25:40
They wait patiently for our arrival every Sunday at 7pm in the City of Sydney. As we prepare to set up our stands, filled with food, juice and hot drinks, they brace whatever the Australian weather had thrown at them. Still, they wait patiently, orderly and looking out for one another. Being sure that none would miss out on the opportunity to nourish their stomachs but also their hearts with the company of many who eagerly wanting to serve, having a conversation and acknowledging that they matter.
Jesus tells us that we are one body in Christ. Everyone; rich, poor, every race, every age, has a legitimate role to play in that body. We came here thinking we were helping them, though they were helping us understand more about ourselves just as much as we understood our brothers and sisters.
Ultimately, we are helping each other grow together into the body Christ envisioned from the beginning of time. Our commonalities become striking when we knock down the false boundaries we have thrown up around our love.
Think about it: every Christian is spiritually homeless.
We live in temporary shelters, however modest or grandiose, waiting to take our places in the Lord’s mansion.
PJoshua shares with us the heart of our worship illustrating this with Moses and the bronze snake (Numbers 21:9).
“All symbols and expressions in our lives loses meaning if we don’t get connected with the heart of the symbol and what it signifies.” – PJoshua

Heartbeat Church Sydney would like to thank Pastor. Paul Kim for being our guest speaker and sharing with us the 4 truths in what the church often looks like:
- People oriented but Christ centred
- Not maintenance but missional
- Not programs but people
- Not work but worship
Bible Reference: 1 Corinthians 2:1-5
Pastor.Joshua shares with us the conviction the Holy Spirit has shown him…
“Greatest achievement in life is not what you have done, but who you have become”.
Without love we are nothing in what we do, but what lies within us in our hearts. Do we pray for patience and kindness in our lives?
