Carry Each Other's Burden

Posted by Albert Ng on

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfil the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2 In Galatians 6:5, Paul teaches that “each one should carry his own load.” The idea here is that we should all be responsible for our own burdens. This is a hallmark of mature adults...

People who Shaped Us

Posted by Albert Ng on

Early this week I had the privilege of teaching a session in the Macau Bible Institute. The current president of the Macau Bible Institute was my youth pastor when I was a teenager. He was also a great table tennis player – that’s why I faithfully attended youth fellowship! I went...

My Bible Verses of the Year
