Waiting on God

Glory to God!
Two weeks ago Prem spoke to us about "The godly fear of Jesus," which you can listen to here. In his message, Prem showed us how Jesus walked in the fear of the Lord and the principles we can learn from Christ's example. Looking at Hebrews 5:7; 10:4 and Matthew 26:37-46, we noted the following:

  • The fear of the Lord is not about being afraid of God but of being afraid of being seperated from God and destroying the intimacy the believer enjoys with the Father.
  • The fear of the Lord is about being honest before the Father when the will of the believer differs from that of God.
  • The fear of the Lord is about positioning oneself before the Father to receive the strength to align one's will to His.
  • The fear of the Lord is about being resolute in our convictions and obedient to God's will despite the influence of those around us who seek to move us away from God's will.

On Sunday we rejoiced with those who testified about how God had healed them the previous week during the meeting. We praise God for His healing presence in our meetings and for the powerful work He is doing in our lives!
Richard shared a message entitled "Waiter, waiter" which you can listen to here. In his message, Richard showed us that to worship God is to serve Him (2 Cor. 5:14,15; Heb. 9:13,14; 1 Thess. 1:8-10), to wait on Him (Rom. 8:5) and to serve His people (Heb.6:9; Phil. 2:19-21). He described how God calls us to wait on Him as a waiter waits on the one he serves. We noted that a good waiter is:

  • One who is present and available to serve
  • One who is ready to serve
  • One who meets the needs of the one he serves
  • One who is committed to serve
  • One who serves with a joyful attitude

We praise God for the intimate relationship we can share with Him as we walk in godly fear and live to serve Him and His people.
