Devotion: the Gospel in one verse

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

John 3:16 is undoubtedly the most famous and widely quoted verse of the Bible. This verse encapsulates the Gospel in one verse. God loved the world so much that He sacrificed His one and only Son on the cross to save the world. Here are the 5 components of this verse:

#1. God is the originator of God’s love. God initiates His divine love for us. 1 John 4:19, We love because he first loved us.

# 2. The world is the destination of God’s love. God’s divine love is universal and for everyone irrespective of race, social status, sexual orientation, etc. Galatians 3:28, There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

# 3. Giving is the demonstration of God’s love. God sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ into the world to pay the penalty of sin for us Romans 5:8, But God demonstrates his own love for us in this, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

# 4. Believers are the recipients of God’s love. John 3:18, Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 

# 5. Eternal life is the consequence of God’s love John 5:24, Very truly I tell you, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.

Book: 1, & 2, Thessalonians & Philemon

By Dr. Andrew C S Koh

A Christ centtred, life changing expository commentary, bible study guide, and daily devotion on 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, and Philemon

Forward by Archbishop Ng Moon Hing

Anglican Archbishop of Southeast Asia

These few Epistles of Apostle Paul addressed the main issues of the churches of his time which is wrong teachings, unholy living, and suffering. He was very systematic and thorough in his teaching and witness. As much as he was firm on having correct theology and truth, he was also very conscious and persistent on the proper conduct and holy living of Christ’s followers, the disciples of Christ. He believed that theology that does not lead to holy living and Christ-liked conduct is useless and worthless. On one hand, he praised the belief of the Thessalonians Christians, especially in their ‘work of faith, labour of love, and patience of hope’ in the Lord Jesus Christ, he was also, at the same time, commending them of their imitation of the Lord Jesus Christ and became a model for all believers in Macedonia and Achaia. The author of this book has also emphasized that holy living and proper theology must always go hand in hand. The missing of any one part of the equation will only lead to an imbalanced life which will not please and not bring glory to God Almighty.

What people are saying

“A great book to study the scriptures in the Bible and gain a better understanding of these lessons. It is a great daily devotional and study for all ages. Each lesson has a beautiful prayer. I am on the ARC team and I leave an honest review. I recommend this book to other readers”

— J Sharmani, Goodreads, Bookbub

“This book speaks of the plan of God at the end times where God’s children will be taken up to meet Christ in the air before Christ’s second return. In answering the concerns of the Thessalonians Christians, Apostle Paul is also telling us today that God has already considered and included all our pains, shortcomings, sufferings, disappointments, mistakes, failures, and rebellions into His master plan so that He can and has started a good work at His Will of a better future for us”

www.amazon.com/dp/B09J4KP6D7/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_navT_a_K9PF1KTECDH0C7QTRNF1

Description

This is a sequel to my first book, “Memoirs of a Doctor”. The book is divided into two sections. In the first section, I shared my journey into the world of writing and publication. In the second section, I shared the tips and tricks on how to publish on Amazon as an independent publisher.

What people are saying

“A very useful and informative book for amateur writers with tips and tricks to get started and motivated. This book will help to diffuse any mental blocks and a great inspiration to help new authors to get started. I received this book for free and I leave an honest review. I recommend this book to other readers”

— J Sharmani, Goodreads, 5 stars

— Rowan E Creech, Goodreads, 5 stars

What people are saying

“Dr. Koh makes good on his promise to teach the beginner everything he or she needs to know to get started as a self-publisher on Amazon”

— Jerry Walsh, Amazon, 4 stars

“This tiny book is a fountain of knowledge if the reader sticks with it long enough to get to the meat of the matter which is found in the second half of the book. What I downloaded this book for and what most people will have downloaded it for is found in chapters five through ten. The first half of the book is interesting reading, but it’s not essential to learn how to publish with KDP, so I recommend reading the second half of the book first and then going back and reading the first half when time permits”

Book: Galatians

Justification by faith

A Christ-centred, life-changing, verse-by-verse expository commentary, bible study guide, and daily devotion on the book of Galatians, by Dr. Andrew C S Koh

https://drandrewcskoh.dashnexpages.net/galatians-a-man-is-not-justified-by-works-of-the-law-but-by-faith-in-jesus-christ-dr-andrew-c-s-koh

Foreword

Archbishop Ng Moon Hing Anglican Archbishop of Southeast Asia

The Epistle to the Galatians is commonly considered as one of the earliest foundational instructions of Christian faith. It was believed that Apostle Paul wrote this epistle at the early days of his missionary ministry. He was adamant to teach proper foundation of faith, especially amid heretical teachings by the Judaizers. After some years of laying the foundation of faith in the district of Galatia, he quickly realized that many so-called believers are straying away from the fundamental belief i.e. Justification by Grace through Faith.  Apostle Paul was required to draw out all his convictions and learnings to re-convince the Galatian Christians what he has taught when he was first with them. He was conscious of the Judaizers and the fleshy and worldly syncretic teachings which were indoctrinating and causing confusion to the believers. He laid a strong contrast between the ‘keeping of the law’ and the ‘faith in Christ’ as two opposing ends.

What people are saying

“A beautiful study of Apostle Paul’s teaching to the Gentiles and Jews and his clear message about the doctrines of the church. He wrote the epistle himself in the early days of his teaching and mission. This is a great book to read and learn Apostle Paul’s teaching and his strong advice that “Keeping the Law ” and ” Faith in Christ are two different teachings. I received this book for free and I leave an honest review. I recommend this book to other readers”

— J Sharmani, Bookbub, 5 out of 5 stars.

“Paul the Apostle wrote this epistle in the early days of his mission and teaching. He wanted to teach the fundamental beliefs of the church to the Gentile and the Jews. This book is a great study of the Apostle Paul’s teachings and avoids any confusion to the believers. I am on the ARC team and I leave an honest review. I recommend this book to other readers”

His writing is clear, and he pulls no punches while he helps the reader to understand the written word. He has divided his work into 13 units following the 13 chapters of Hebrews. He assists the reader to understand the written word. He does not interpret it for you but rather assists you to understand the written word of our Lord, bringing us closer to him and the blessed word that he has brought to us through the Holy Bible. I received this book from Story Origin and this is my true and honest review”

— Pamela Anne Reinert, Bookbub, 5 out of 5 stars

What people are saying


Dr. Koh has written another wonderful book on another book of the Bible, Hebrews, that is engaging and informational. It is a wonderful study guide that is easy to read and makes another book of the Bible more accessible to the modern age of learning”

— Rowan E Creech, Bookbub, and Goodreads, 5 out of 5 stars

“The author here rightly appreciates and points out that the Author of the Book of Hebrews has intended to present Jesus Christ as the Son of God who is the Priest, Prophet and King. Jesus is the True High Priest of the order of Melchizedek, the True Prophet who is before and after Moses, and the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
