Philip Ng Chee Tat, the richest man in Singapore has grabbed media headlines with his thought-provoking declarations of the powerful influence of Christ Jesus in his life above the billions he has.
The multi-billionaire has been trumpeting his unshaken belief in Christ, testifying in several corporate platforms of how empty life can be until one surrendered himself to the Lordship of Christ Jesus. He insists, life without Jesus Christ is a broken life.
During an interview with Believers Portal, a Christian expressions platform, Philip acknowledged the toughness of life on earth and the need for humans to seek Christ as a shield in life. The affable billionaire is of the conviction that the void in people’s lives and the depressions they feel is as a result of lack of recognition of the deity of Christ Jesus and The delivering power in His Name.
“I have discovered all of us are broken, we all have a missing piece. For me, I discovered the missing piece was God in Jesus Christ,” the billionaire said. To Philip, the only way to achieve happiness and live a fulfilling life is through admitting that people tend to misplace life’s true priorities. Placing riches above a genuine pursuit of Jesus Christ is risky, according to the business magnate.
“A better life, a better purpose, better me and a better everything. I was looking at all the wrong things,” he added.
The wealthy developer testified of how upon all his wealth things did not make much sense in his life until he reached out to Christ.
“It sure beats a lot of money and material things that you may have. It starts with accepting you are broken and there is a missing piece. For me, personally, that missing piece is our Lord Jesus Christ,” he remarked.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Far East Organization Centre places his relationship with The Lord Jesus Christ ahead of all of life’s pleasures and treasures, affirming that he is a living testimony of God’s grace and peace in Christ.
The billionaire has been a consultant for the Hong Kong and China projects of the Sino Group, with engagements of planning and guiding development activities. He is also adored by a large pool of admirers across the breath of Singapore who see him as a voice of peace and unity in the land.
