Journey to Wholeness
The Lord is speaking to us about His agape love and on Sunday the Father spoke to us about His desire to restore us to a place of wholeness - spiritual, emotional and physical. God has brought the believer in Christ out of the kingdom of darkness and into His glorious Kingdom of light (Col.1:13). The Lord wants us to live according to His Kingdom and His truth and be free from all the hurt, pain and perversion in this world caused by satan and his influence.
Having been joined to Agape, God commands us to love Him and to love our neighbour as ourselves (Mark 12:30,31; 1 John 4:15-20). The Lord showed us that we must learn to love ourselves if we are to love others. Looking at 3 foundational areas of our lives: our personality, emotions and sexuality; God showed us how different the world view is compared to His view. We then learned how God wants His people to come to emotional and sexual wholeness and also to learn to understand, accept and appreciate who and how God has made each one of us.
To love yourself means to understand, accept and appreciate how God has made you!
After God's powerful Word to us the Holy Spirit drew us into His holiness and ministered restoration and healing to the people as they confessed and repented of believing the enemy's lies and of continuing to walk in darkness. We praise God for setting people free and for taking many on a journey of wholeness for the first time! Hallelujah!
Next Saturday we will be meeting to have some time together as a church and to hear what is on God's heart for KLF. See here for more info.

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." Mark 12:30,31
