On Saturday we had our quarterly Welcome Coffee where people who are new to KLF had the opportunity to meet some of our members and leaders and for us to get to know them. It is always a special time as we reflect on the journey the Lord has taken us on as a church and as we share what is important to us and where we believe God is taking us. It is also encouraging to hear the testimonies of those who have recently joined us who related how their lives have been impacted by God since attending KLF. We praise God for His faithfulness and goodness to us!
Yesterday the Lord moved powerfully already before the meeting during our pre-service prayer as the Holy Spirit filled us and moved us to pray in the Spirit, in authority and in power. We are seeing how God is using this prayer time to prepare His people to enter into a greater revelation of His presence and His Kingdom. Just as the the Lord carried Elijah up into glory with a whirlwind, so we are seeing how God is carrying His people up in a spiritual whirlwind to higher realms of revelation to not only have the Lord's perspective but also to prophetically proclaim heaven on earth. We believe God is raising the Church to bring about a spiritual shift that will bring about significant change in the Body of Christ as well as in our city and nation. Hallelujah!
Looking at Matthew 6:1-21, Richard shared a message entitled, "The Secret Box" which you can listen to here. Focusing on Matthew 6:4 where Jesus says, "Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you," Richard explained how every believer should have a secret box that is the life of faith that is lived before the Father as we believe that God sees us and that we will be rewarded for our obedience in secret. The believer's secret b.o.x. is therefore made up of our Belief, Obedience and eXpectation of eternal reward. Jesus had a problem with the Pharisees because they demonstrated a religious life to be seen by man but their hearts were far from God. By telling His disciples to do their good works in secret, just to be seen by the Father, Jesus was showing them how to make the necessary shift from fearing man to fearing God, from outward hypocrisy to secret obedience and from looking for honour and applause from man to looking ahead to heaven's reward (see 2 Cor 4:17; Eph 6:8; Heb 11:26; Rev 22:12)!
