Divine Love

Glory to God!

God's vision for the Church is a community of love, set apart and purified that produces the fruit of God's Kingdom. John writes,

"God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him." 1 John 4:16

In order to live in God's love and to reveal His love, Richard showed us on Sunday how the believer needs spiritual revelation of the nature of God's love. In his message entitled, Without measure, full and boundless, which you can listen to here, Richard showed us the following:

  • The Church needs to grasp the dimension of God's love. Ephesians 3:17-19
  • God gives us His Spirit so we can understand His love. 1 Corinthians 2:9-12
  • The revelation and the experience of the fullness of God's love is one of the characteristics of every true revival.
  • God's love is beyond every limitation. Ephesians 3:19
  • God's love pursues us relentlessly. Song of songs 8:6 (Psalm 23:6; James 4:4,5)
  • God's love consumes us. Song of songs 8:6 (Hebrews 12:39)
  • God's love is unquenchable. Song of songs 8:7 (Romans 8:35-39)
  • God's love is unconditional. Song of songs 8:7 (Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:4-7)

We praise God for the revelation of His inexpressible love and for ministering His love to us on Sunday.

This Sunday is the Frankfurt Marathon that takes place once a year in our city. Three of our people will be running the race of 42,195 kilometres to raise money for our daughter church, Kingdom Life Butuan as well as for Hermon Living Water Ministries, a ministry in India that reaches out to the poorest of the poor. Kingdom Life will also be doing a marathon from the 1.11 - 13.12: 42,195 days to train spiritually. Paul writes,

"Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come." 1 Timothy 4:8, NLT

As part of our vision to live the Kingdom life wherever we are individually and to be God's Kingdom community corporately, we are called to be a spiritual people, a people who depend on God, live for God and are governed by God. For this purpose we are setting aside 42,195 days to focus on our relationship with God and our walk with Him.

The Fruit of the Kingdom

Glory to God!

It is always exciting to see how God speaks to each of us individually and then confirms His word to us corporately. On Sunday some people brought bunches of grapes on the vine, which were also used to decorate our communion table and as we celebrated the Lord's Supper, we were encouraged to discern the Body of Christ before participating in the Lord's table (1 Cor. 11:23-32).

Richard then shared a message from John 15:1-17 about the Vine and the branches, entitled, "God's vision for the Church" which you can listen to here. This is what he showed us:
  1. The Church is the context for fruitfulness.
  2. Christ must be our Source for fruitfulness.
  3. We cannot produce fruit unless we remain in Christ and His Word remains in us.
  4. For the Word to remain in us we need to receive it, own it, allow it to convict and purify us, and obey it.
  5. We have been chosen and appointed to bear lasting fruit.
  6. The result of our fruitfulness will be that:
  • God is glorified
  • Our prayers will be answered
  • We will experience overflowing joy
  • Jesus will confide in us as His friends
  • We reveal that we are Christ's disciples 
God's vision for the Church is a community of love, set apart and purified, producing the fruit of the Kingdom.

Church Day

Glory to God!

As an international, multicultural group of people with many different backgrounds, it is an exciting challenge to unite our diversity to be a people with one heart, spirit and purpose (Phil.2:1-2). Our KLF Church Day on Saturday was an opportunity for the church to come together and to find out how everyone can be a significant part of the fulfilment of KLF's vision. For this purpose, our senior leaders Richard and Frances, spoke to us about the difference between essence and form; the different mind-sets one can have concerning church that govern one's expectations and behaviour; the vision of KLF to be a spiritual, relational, maturing, healing, generous, serving, outward-focused, creative and multiplying Kingdom community that lives the Kingdom life wherever we are; and the four different personality types that are each needed for the church to function well. We praise God for joining us together to be passionately committed to His purpose for KLF and for working through us to build His Kingdom in Frankfurt and beyond! Hallelujah!

On Sunday we again heard testimonies of God's goodness and power in people's lives and spent time in worship and praying for one another. It was a special time as the Father ministered to people and set them free from depression and fear. Richard then shared the second part of his message entitled Sealed with the Spirit which you can listen to here. Looking at the 5 seals that represent a guarantee, authenticity, authority, ownership and privilege, Richard showed us that although we have been sealed with the Spirit, our faith in the reality of what God has sealed us with will be tested. We looked at how trials and temptations are tests that prove the authenticity of our faith in God's "yes" that is sealed in our hearts (2 Corinthians 1:20-22; James 1:2-4; 1 Peter 1:3-7). In response to God's Word to us, we rose up with a spirit of faith, standing firm and proclaiming God's truth over our lives. Hallelujah!
