Times of refreshing

Glory to God!

The Lord is speaking to us about His favour and He is building us up and encouraging us to not only receive His favour but also to stand fast in it. This is what He showed us yesterday:
  • God gives us His Spirit so that we can understand His grace (unconditional favour). 1 Cor. 2:12
  • God wants us to understand His grace in all its truth. Col. 1:6
  • The Gospel is the message of God's grace or favour. Acts 20:24
  • God's favour is revealed to all mankind. Titus 2:11
  • Access into the life of God is by dependency on His favour. Rom. 5:1,2; Eph. 2:4,5; 4:18
  • Abiding in the life of God is by dependency on His favour. Rom. 5:1,2; 5:17; 1 Peter 5:12
  • God encourages His people to rely on His favour to be strengthened. 2 Tim. 2:1
  • God's favour means salvation and times of refreshing for every believer. Prov. 16:15; Acts 3:19
In the evening we had another opportunity to minister God's love to the poor and needy at our monthly soup kitchen. It was exciting that we could translate the message into bulgarian and polish so that even more people could understand the Good News! Consequently many received the message and asked for the favour of God in their lives through faith in Jesus. Hallelujah!

From the 15 July to 1 August, pastor Richard will be travelling to the Philippines. KLF is in the process of setting up a ministry on the Island of Butuan that will support the local people and in particular the many street children. Our desire is to impart truth and to meet some of the physical and educational needs of the many orphans and children in the area. You can follow his trip on the Mabini blog - click here...

On the 24 July, KLF will be meeting at the Baptist church, Haeberlinstr.3, in Eschersheim at 15h00 because of the Iron Man event taking place on that day in and around Frankfurt.

Quote of the week:

"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand." Romans 5:1,2
