Last weekend in Heart of God Church, Pastor Cecilia Chan taught us about FAITH! One of the things she taught us about was to have ambidextrous faith. To be ambidextrous is to be able to use both your right and left hand equally. If you’re my age, you would remember Return of the Condor Heroes when Xiao Long Nu drew a square and circle simultaneously in the sand. The next day, everyone in school was doing it. Haha, anyway, Pastor Lia got us to write the word FAITH with our master hand, and then the other. Can you guess which is my master hand? Obviously…
Why do we need ambidextrous faith? Because The path to walk towards your promises can be filled with a lot of difficulty!
St Basil of Caesarea was one who had ambidextrous faith. He viewed both hands as equally important – one hand to accept God’s blessings, and with the other life’s pain.
This weekend, we are so challenged by Pastor @lia_chan to be people with #AmbidextrousFaith. We will learn to hold God's blessings in our right hand and life's difficulties in our left hand. We will trust God to use both to accomplish His purpose. Just like the 700 soldiers who learnt to use their left-hands, nothing will prevent us from inheriting the promises of God. . "There were another seven hundred supermarksmen who were ambidextrous—they could sling a stone at a hair and not miss.” - Judges 20:16 (MSG)
