Why Are We Sitting Here?

Glory to God!

Last week was amazing! We joined up with several others to worship and prayer walk in the centre of Frankfurt's darkest area to invite God's presence, power and love to invade the kingdom of darkness and set the captives free. We praise God for the people who are drawn to us as we worship our King and for the opportunities to speak to them about our Saviour and pray for them!

Last week was our student placements' final week and we have been richly blessed with their anointing and encouragement as they led various meetings and participated in the life of Kingdom Life. We are very grateful to Kingdom Faith College for sending them to us and supporting us in this way. We praise God for our covenant relationship!

Sunday's meeting was awesome once again and the Lord spoke to us about our needing to have the same attitude as the lepers in 2 Kings 7. He showed us that,

  1. The lepers were not prepared to stay where they were and chose to arise. Similarly the Church is called to wake up from its spiritual slumber and be obedient to her commission to arise and shine! Eph. 5:14; Is.60:1
  2. The lepers were prepared to take a risk. Similarly the Church is called to leave her comfort and risk for God's glory and for the sake of the lost!
  3. The lepers didn't keep the plunder for themselves but told the hungry about the abundance they had received! Similarly the Church is called to share what she has been given and not selfishly hoard the blessings and God's abundant spiritual provision!

The heavenly "alarm clock" has sounded and it is time for the Church to rise up and reveal the glory of God and share His glory with the lost!

We are really looking forward to Faith Camp in Peterborough, England from 26 July - 2 August. It will be a refreshing time for all of us and an awesome opportunity to be spiritually tanked up and enjoy true fellowship as we camp together for a week.

Kingdom Life will therefore not be meeting from 21 July - 4 August! We will resume meetings on Sunday 10 August, filled and empowered for the next season with God! Hallelujah!
