Running the race

Glory to God!

This month the Lord has been drawing us ever closer to Him and calling us to a life of reverential worship; a life of gratitude; a life settled, sealed and strengthened in Christ and a life of true sonship in the spirit of forgiveness. Here is what God has been saying to us:

"A life of reverential worship" - Prem spoke to us about true worship and fellowship in the fear of the Lord.
"The power of gratitude" - Richard showed us that gratitude is a form of worship; a weapon against the enemy; the way of peace and the path to contentment.
"Stop wobbling" - Richard spoke to us about God's desire for us to stop wandering, wavering and wobbling but settling our decision for Christ; sealing our commitment to following Christ and strengthening our lives in Christ.
"From revealtion to restoration" - Alexander showed us how a life of true forgiveness in response to God's redeeming love is the key to restoration.

On Sunday our 2 marathon runners, Elizabeth and Richard as well as our relay team runners, Wesley, Jane, Uli, Danni, Muriel, Andreas and 6 others ran the Frankfurt Marathon to RUN for BUTUAN - a project to raise money for street children, orphans and children in need in Butuan City in the Philippines. It was a great opportunity to accomplish personal breakthrough as well as involve family, colleagues and friends outside the church to participate in running for a good cause.

Contemplating Christ

Glory to God

The Lord is continuing to draw us into closer fellowship with Him so that we know Him and become like Him. On Sunday we looked at Hebrews 2:5-3:1 and "considered Jesus, our apostle and High Priest." In his message entitled, "Who is this King?" which you can listen to here, Richard reflected on Christ, showing us that,

Jesus is supreme. Heb 2:5-9
Jesus is the perfect Saviour. Heb 2:9,10
Jesus identifies Himself with us. Heb 2:11-14
Jesus takes us into His fellowship with the Father. Heb 2:12,13; (Jn 17:6,26)
Jesus goes ahead of us. Heb 2:14,15; (Heb 6:19,20)
Jesus is our great High Priest. Heb 2:16-17
Jesus empowers us to overcome. Heb 2:18

We had a very special and powerful time as we contemplated Christ and after reflecting on each aspect of who Jesus is and does, we were led in prayer by Liz, Uwe, Sarah, Prem, Sabine, Antje and Jane respectively. We then shared communion together and enjoyed fellowship with Jesus in the revelation He gave us during the meeting. Hallelujah!
