Knowing God


Glory to God!

The apostle Paul's prayer for the Church is that she would receive spiritual revelation so that she would grow in her knowledge of God (Eph 1:17). It is God's will that we should grow in our knowledge of Him and these past 2 weeks the Lord has been encouraging us to encounter Him, experience Him and overflow with Him.

In his message entitled, "I want you to know me," Richard shared how God's desire is that we grow in our knowledge of Him so that we grasp and experience His pleasure (Eph 1:3-9; Mk 1:11; 2 Pet 1:3); our union with Him (Jn 14:9-14, 20); His glory, holiness and mercy (Is 6:1-8); and God's will for our lives (Col 1:9-13; Eph 4:17-24; 2 Pet 1:3). It is as we receive spiritual revelation of God that we can grow in our knowledge of Him and make Him known. Hallelujah!

On Sunday, Frances spoke to us about the essence of Christianity. In her message entitled, "A greater love," we looked at the apostle Paul's prayer for the Church in Ephesians 3:16-19 where he prays that the believers be rooted and established in God's love (Eph 3:17), grasp the magnitude of God's love (Eph 3:18) and be filled with the fullness of God (Eph 3:19).

Frances showed us how important it is to be rooted and established in Christ's love in order to grasp the extent of God's love so that we are filled to the measure of all the fullness of God! We saw how being rooted and established in Christ's love means trusting in His unconditional love for us and being secure in that love despite one's circumstances. It is in God's love that we find acceptance, security and significance despite what we go through in our lives. We then looked at the nature of God's love and noted that His love is merciful (1 Pet 4:8; Pr 10:12; Rom 5:8), sacrificial (Jn 3:16; Jn 15:13) and compassionate (Jn 3:17). Frances showed us that the believer should be motivated by Christ's love (2 Cor 5:14) instead of fear, selfish ambition, need or duty and that it is only as the believer is filled with God's love through revelation, faith and giving that s/he will overflow with Christ's love.

We praise God for revealing Himself to us and helping us grow in our knowledge of Him so that we can make Him known.

Running the race



Glory to God!

This month the Lord has been drawing us ever closer to Him and calling us to a life of reverential worship; a life of gratitude; a life settled, sealed and strengthened in Christ and a life of true sonship in the spirit of forgiveness. Here is what God has been saying to us:

"A life of reverential worship" - Prem spoke to us about true worship and fellowship in the fear of the Lord.
"The power of gratitude" - Richard showed us that gratitude is a form of worship; a weapon against the enemy; the way of peace and the path to contentment.
"Stop wobbling" - Richard spoke to us about God's desire for us to stop wandering, wavering and wobbling but settling our decision for Christ; sealing our commitment to following Christ and strengthening our lives in Christ.
"From revealtion to restoration" - Alexander showed us how a life of true forgiveness in response to God's redeeming love is the key to restoration.

On Sunday our 2 marathon runners, Elizabeth and Richard as well as our relay team runners, Wesley, Jane, Uli, Danni, Muriel, Andreas and 6 others ran the Frankfurt Marathon to RUN for BUTUAN - a project to raise money for street children, orphans and children in need in Butuan City in the Philippines. It was a great opportunity to accomplish personal breakthrough as well as involve family, colleagues and friends outside the church to participate in running for a good cause.

Contemplating Christ


Glory to God

The Lord is continuing to draw us into closer fellowship with Him so that we know Him and become like Him. On Sunday we looked at Hebrews 2:5-3:1 and "considered Jesus, our apostle and High Priest." In his message entitled, "Who is this King?" which you can listen to here, Richard reflected on Christ, showing us that,

Jesus is supreme. Heb 2:5-9
Jesus is the perfect Saviour. Heb 2:9,10
Jesus identifies Himself with us. Heb 2:11-14
Jesus takes us into His fellowship with the Father. Heb 2:12,13; (Jn 17:6,26)
Jesus goes ahead of us. Heb 2:14,15; (Heb 6:19,20)
Jesus is our great High Priest. Heb 2:16-17
Jesus empowers us to overcome. Heb 2:18

We had a very special and powerful time as we contemplated Christ and after reflecting on each aspect of who Jesus is and does, we were led in prayer by Liz, Uwe, Sarah, Prem, Sabine, Antje and Jane respectively. We then shared communion together and enjoyed fellowship with Jesus in the revelation He gave us during the meeting. Hallelujah!

Touching Jesus

 



Glory to God!

As we continue our journey into revival, the Lord is speaking to us about responding to His call and aligning our lives to His will. Two Sundays ago Alexander shared a message entitled, "Get over it and move on!" which you can listen to here. Looking at the examples of Solomon, Gideon, Jeremiah, Rahab and others, Alexander showed us how God wants His children to adopt His perspective on their lives and to align their lives to Him accordingly. We saw how God works through people despite their failures and imperfections and how the Lord never wastes an experience. Alexander challenged us and encouraged us to not allow our view of ourselves and our negative experiences to limit what God wants to do in us and through us.

"A revelation of God settles the matter!"

We praise God for stirring us up to take hold of God's perspective and walking in it.

On Sunday Richard spoke to us about encountering Jesus in such a way as to be changed by Him. In his message entitled, "Get rid of the ashes" which you can listen to here, Richard showed us the difference between the presence of God and the sense of the presence of God and how the believer must learn to meet with God by faith and not depend on an experience to know whether God is present or not. Looking at Luke 4:18-21 and Isaiah 61:1-3, Richard encouraged us to encounter Christ in His anointing to minister to us as we receive His good news, restoration, freedom, favour, comfort, provision, a crown of beauty, the oil of gladness, a garment of praise, His righteousness and are planted to reveal His glory! As we spent time in fellowship with Jesus, we touched His robe by faith and received from Him. Halleluja!
