Glory to God!
Yesterday we celebrated our first year together. We praise God for His faithfulness and His favour and for all He is doing in and through us as His people. Hallelujah!
The Lord is speaking to us about suffering and what it means to suffer for remaining in Him; for responding by the Spirit and for risking for His glory. Looking at Acts 3:1-16; 4:13-20, the Lord revealed to us that the believers risked for God's glory by stepping out in faith for the sake of others and for God's glory because they were courageous (Acts 4:13). We then saw that they were courageous because:
- They were connected to Jesus (Acts 4:13)
- They were compelled (Acts 4:20; 2 Cor. 5:14)
- They were convinced (2 Cor. 4:13; 5:14)
- They were competent (Acts 3:12; 3:16; 2 Cor. 3:4-6; 1 Cor. 1:25-31)
In the evening we provided spiritual and physical food for the poor and needy and rejoiced in God's provision in giving KLF a gift of opportunity to glorify His name! Thank you Lord!
We praise God for an awesome first year. The Lord is fulfilling the vision He gave us right from the beginning and we are excited to keep in step with Him as we know where we're headed if we keep up with Him! Hallelujah!

"He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant - not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills but the Spirit gives life." 2 Cor. 3:6
