(Note: This letter from the Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church of Singapore was received by the Contact Committee. We are passing it along to our people, via The Standard Bearer partly because it was meant for all our people, and partly because it has to do with the help which the Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church requested from us in connection with their new building project.) Dearly beloved brethren in the Lord, Greetings to you in the precious and glorious Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We thank God for His wonderful providence in giving to us a place of worship in...

Rev. Mahtani is pastor of Trinity Protestant Reformed Church in Houston, Texas. When I received the invitation to speak at this year’s Young People’s Convention, I joyfully accepted it on account of my background and association with the young saints in Singapore. Quite honestly, however, I was also apprehensive because of some “horror stories” I had heard about our YP’s conventions! This year’s YPs Convention was sponsored by Grandville Protestant Reformed Church and was held at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. As I sit back to reflect upon the blessed moments I was given to enjoy with our precious covenant...

Rev. Mahtani is pastor of Trinity Protestant Reformed Church in Houston, Texas. Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:14 Christmas draws near. The church of Jesus Christ celebrates the birth of her beloved Savior, Jesus Christ, the Lord! The season is usually filled with visits among families and friends, exchange of gifts, and words of cheer. Tables are laden with food and drink to make the festive season memorable. Often the poor are especially remembered, and even the non-Christian seems moved to generosity. It is a time when carols are heard,...

Rev. Mahtani is a minister in the Evangelical Reformed Churches of Singapore. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek. Psalm 27:8 We are not surprised to find this sweet dialogue inPsalm 27, another of David’s beautiful Spirit-inspired songs. The psalm extols Jehovah’s gracious care for His suffering children. When exactly David penned these words we are not sure. Whether he is presently fleeing from his enemies, or is writing in humble reflection of past afflictions, we cannot tell. But God’s people have fallen in love with these familiar lines....

Rev. Mahtani is a minister in the Evangelical Reformed Churches of Singapore. When the invitation came for us to return to India, nobody expected it to materialize in what one might call the “first joint-venture in missions” between the Evangelical Reformed Churches in Singapore and the Protestant Reformed Churches in America. As it turned out, however, Rev. J. Mahtani and Rev. J. Kortering found themselves on Indian soil for 24 days in the months of October and November 1992. What on earth were they doing there? Instead of writing words to explain and illustrate the mission trip, we present a...

Rev. Mahtani is pastor-elect of Trinity Protestant Reformed Church in Houston, Texas. I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,) that ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth. I Corinthians 16:15, 16. By the amazing grace of God we have been delivered from the darkness of self-indulgence. We have put away drug addiction, drunkenness, gluttony, and all our former lusts. But we must remember that as new creatures in Christ we are...

Rev. Mahtani is pastor of Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church of Singapore. Besides giving greetings this afternoon on behalf of the ERCS, may I express our thanks particularly to the Contact Committee of the Protestant Reformed Churches which has labored hard over the years to make this Conference possible. May God bless your labors as you continue to seek the unity of the Spirit through the spread of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and through further contact with the Lord’s people all over the world. Do not be discouraged when in the busyness of laboring to uphold the Reformed...

Rev. Mahtani is eastern home missionary of the Protestant Reformed Churches. Previous article in this series: April 15, 2005, p. 331. Preachers can help a great deal to equip the saints by the preaching itself. Believing that the best way to equip our people for personal evangelism is by the lively preaching of the gospel, I wish to return to the subject of preaching and discuss some of its finer points as it relates to evangelism. I think we need to remember a few things about preaching. First of all, let us not forget that the lively preaching of the...
