Abounding Grace

Senior Pastors and Elder-Designate Tony Tan


30 December 2018

This heartbeat is part of a series that was first published in the church bulletin when Covenant EFC embarked on our Seed Fund Faith Journey.

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work…You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way ….” – 2 Corinthians 9:8,11a

As we close 2018, let us reflect on the bountiful grace we have received from the Lord throughout the past year. Let us thank Him for always being with us, for upholding us and for never abandoning us, as we journeyed across mountains and valleys.

In life, good and bad runs on parallel tracks. I am sure that through the year 2018, each one of us have experienced our share of victories and defeats, joys and sorrows, tears and laughter. In all things however, a universal constant remains — His grace is sufficient. We can experience the fullness of His peace and presence through the power of His love that sustains us.

Having been thus enriched by His all-sufficient grace and mercies, our grateful response must be to abound in good works and generosity. Has God supplied us with every necessary provision and more? Has He protected us and kept us out of harm’s way? Has He blessed and established the works of our hands? As an act of thanksgiving, let’s reciprocate by channelling His abounding grace into generous giving to advance His mission and purpose for His church.

We have a vision to raise a Seed Fund of $40M for the purpose of advancing the IDMC movement in Singapore by acquiring a new property to house Covenant East. We ask that each Covenanter contribute generously and in faith, believing that God will accomplish His purposes through Covenant EFC. Let’s be faithful to bring the best of our firstfruits by February 2019.
