On 4 January 2015, the first Sunday of the year, thousands of churchgoers packed our service venues with expectant hearts to receive the theme of the year, and to hear God’s heartbeat for His people through our Senior Pastor Joseph Prince.
Our Vision Sunday services opened with a stunning laser dance item. The creative team used interweaving laser light staging and handheld laser beams to create prismatic visual effects that were in sync with the pulsating music and the dancers’ lithe movements.
But what made the performance truly unforgettable was the dazzling appearance of the “mirror man” whose reflective suit, made up of tiny glass mosaic tiles, sent opalescent light beams in all directions — a picture of the blessed man who reflects and radiates the glory of God! It also mirrors how the broken shards of our lives are pieced together to form beautiful tapestries of light as God’s glory shines on us.
Then at the invitation of the worship team, everyone rose to their feet to praise and worship the Lord. Towards the end, Pastor Lawrence Lim led the church in a prayer for those affected by the recent AirAsia plane crash and prayed specifically for an end to the spate of flight disasters in the region that took place in 2014. This was followed by an anointed time of Holy Communion and an electrifying item featuring three guitars, a keytar and a quartet of singers magnifying our awesome God above the circumstances we may face.
In his message, Pastor Prince declared that 2015 would a year of His restoration, a year when God will restore much more, both in quantity and quality, than what was lost or stolen from His people. Then, Pastor Prince took time to expound from the Bible three key areas that God would restore to His children, namely their wasted years, souls, and health. (Ref: Joel 2:25, Psalm 23:3 and Jeremiah 30:17)
Pastor Prince also shared a special video animation to illustrate and drive home the message on how God will bring broken pieces in our lives together and make them beautiful in Christ.
And in another video presentation, Pastor Prince emphasised the importance of resting and depending on Jesus’ finished work to receive God’s restoration.
The services culminated in a powerful time of prayer as Pastor Prince pronounced God’s divine protection over His people, and encouraged them to speak forth their restoration in Christ in the year ahead.
