Glory to God
There is a tangible rise in the spiritual temperature in KLF! As we continue our spiritual marathon together over the 42,195 days (01.11-13.12), we are sensing God stir our hearts by His Spirit to press deeper and deeper into Him. For this purpose we are meeting on Tuesday evenings to be revived by God's Word, on Friday mornings to pray as the Holy Spirit leads us and on Friday the 13.11 & 04.12 to worship and encounter Him.
Last Tuesday we looked at the nature and expression of true worship and in response many broke through into a new level of encountering God as we worshipped the Lord in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). On Friday morning we had a powerful time of prayer as the Holy Spirit helped us to pray for the Church and our city!
On Sunday there was a real buzz in the place as we met and worshipped together. There seems to be an increasing measure of faith, love and joy in the church - God is reviving His people! Hallelujah! Richard spoke to us about The Joy of Your Salvation, which you can listen to here. In his message, Richard showed us the following:
Jesus is our perfect High Priest whose priesthood is forever because He lives forever. Heb. 7:24-8:2
Jesus lives to intercede for us so that we might be saved completely. Heb. 7:24,25
Salvation (Sozo) includes being forgiven, restored, healed and delivered.
Salvation deals with our past, present and future.
We take hold of God’s salvation by:
- faith in the finished work of Christ. Heb. 4:9-11
- allowing Jesus to convict us. Heb. 4:12,13
- depending on Christ’s compassion. Heb. 4:14,15
- receiving Christ’s mercy. Heb. 4:16; 1 John 1:9-2:2
- finding grace to strengthen us and envelop us in God to overcome and live from glory to glory. Heb. 4:16; 13:9; 2 Tim. 2:1
