Reviews

From Malaysia to other continents covering a period of almost fifty years, Koh shared his interesting and colorful memoir with us. I am drawn to stories that show how God guides someone through life’s unpredictable struggles and challenges. The narration in this book is easy to read, J R Wu-Wong, Amazon, Bookbub, Goodreads, 5 stars  

I am truly fond of the genre of World Literature, memoirs, and biographies. There is so much we can learn. Dr. Koh’s ability to recount his adventures from childhood to the current day is incredible.  The book introduced me to visions of cultural life in countries I have not had the opportunity to explore. One scene that surprised me is that of a woman doing her laundry in a river and being swallowed by a crocodile! All along the way, miracles, triumphs, and tragedy coupled with his belief in God; guided him through the best and worst times. The photos were enjoyable and enhanced the book. I could write pages about all the intricate insights and adventures in this engaging memoir….yet, that would rob you of gaining your own inspiration by reading this enlightening book. Bravo!, Elizabeth O Caroll, Amazon and Good Reads, 5 stars

Memoirs of a Doctor is an inspirational and heart-warming book about faithfulness to God. A book that reminds us to stay strong when the days are hard. Dr. Koh reveals moments of his life in a motivational, educational and engaging way. A book that you will keep in the back of your mind. Great and easy read, Valentina, Goodreads, 5 stars

An endearing read about a young boy who grew up poor in a village in Malaysia. Dr. Andrew C S Koh shares with the reader his truthful and insightful journey into the life of a doctor. He writes in an easy, engaging, and interesting manner that will keep the reader engaged. Dr. Koh shares stories about his childhood, education, a career in different towns. He shares his marriage, family, loss of friends, an encounter with paralysis, Pamela Anne Reinert, Amazon, 5 stars

A beautiful life story of Dr.Andrew and his childhood memories. He had many hardships but he overcame all these troubles to become a cardiac doctor. His belief in Christ and his inspiration to testify is very heartwarming. An Inspiring book, Sharmani Jeyaram, Goodreads, 5 stars

Dr. Koh provided glimpses of his life in a short, loveable, and easy-to-read book. I enjoyed his reminiscing about the kind of life he lived in the cities and villages in Malaysia before the arrival of social media. His varied experiences as a government, private, and military physician were a novelty to read as well, Bob, Amazon, 4 stars

I loved reading this book as it took me back to the stories that my grandmother told me of the days when she was growing up. It is hard for some who have grown up with our modern-day computers and gadgets to think of a day when things were slower, harder, and communication even slower. Dr. Koh’s story is a great reminder of where we have come from and to not forget our origins, Rowan Creech, Goodreads., 4 stars

A concise memoir of the doctor’s path from freethinker to Christianity, as well as his feeling of God’s hand of provenance at key junctions in his life!Jan Paessler Amazon, 4 stars

Romans, Lesson 20

Lesson 20

R

omans 8: 28-30, the pinnacle of Romans

The climax, highest point, or pinnacle of the Book of Romans is Romans 8:28.

V 28, And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

We know for certain that God will make everything work together in unison for the good of a Christian according to His purpose. God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. He arranges and rearranges all of life’s events behind the scenes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to ensure a good final outcome for us. When we looked back at life’s events after many years, we will see God’s hands of providence at work. All coincidences are God’s incidences. This is a memory verse and a conditional promise to claim. The recipients of this promise are Christians, who are called by God according to His purpose

2 Peter 5:7, “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you”.

Romans 8:38, ”in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”.

Proverbs 3:5, ”trust in the Lord your God with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”.

Genesis 50:20, ”But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive

VV 29-30, 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

God foreknew, predestined, and conform us to the image of His Son, Jesus Christ. He predestined, called, justified, and glorified us. He had us covered from eternity past to eternity future. In eternity past, he foreknew and predestined us. At the present time, He called and justified us. In eternity future He will resurrect and glorify us.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, we claim the promise of Romans 8:28, that all things work together for good to those who loved you and are called according to Your purpose. If You are working for us, then we have absolutely nothing to fear, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
