Glory to God!
We are thrilled with the presence of God in our meetings! The Lord is increasingly manifesting His presence and power in our midst and people are being touched in spirit, soul and body. Lives are being changed, healed and restored and our people are walking in newness of life. Hallelujah! We are experiencing the truth of Acts 3:19 where it says,
"Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.."
The Lord is continuing to speak to us about "The Church" and yesterday He showed us that the Body of Christ is a bold people. Being connected to the Head, the Body of Christ is joined to the One who demonstrated complete dependance on, and confidence in God. Jesus never feared man but always walked in the fear of the Lord and in humble confidence in the Father. The Church can walk in boldness and overcome fear as she remains in Christ and has her eyes fixed on Him.
"The righteous are as bold as a lion." Prov. 28:1
Yesterday we had another wonderful opportunity to minister to the poor and needy in Frankfurt at our monthly soup kitchen. It is on God's heart to comfort those who are struggling in this life and to provide for their needs. James says,
"Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, 'Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." James 2:15-17
We praise God for the work He is doing in us and through us as we grow in our knowledge of Him and He manifests His presence, power and love in our lives.

"Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized they had been with Jesus." Acts 4:13 (NKJV)
