The Word Became Flesh:

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word:   In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1: 1

The Word Became Flesh: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1: 1-5

Thought: The simple statement that God created the heavens and the earth is one of the most challenging concepts confronting the modern mind. The vast galaxy we live in is spinning at the incredible speed of 490,000 miles an hour. But even at this breakneck speed, our galaxy still needs 200 million years to make one rotation. And there are over one billion other galaxies just like ours in the universe. When God created, he made something from nothing. Remember that God created the universe because he loves us and LORD Jesus Christ came to show the Father’s love to us.

COST OF DISCIPLESHIP

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2

Word:  “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15: 5

Thought: The Spirit filled life is the Christ-directed life by which Christ lives His life in and through us in the power of the Holy Spirit. Faith is the only means by which a Christian can live the Spirit filled life.

Action plan: Pray for the Holy Spirit to lead your life and be humble to accept his guidance. The cost of discipleship may be different for each and every one.

How is our Spiritual walk with our LORD Jesus Christ?

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word:

And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. Matthew 16:18

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%2016%3A18&version=NIV

Thought:

Jesus’ first words to Simon Peter were “Come, follow me” (Mark 1: 17). His last words to him were “Follow me” (John 21: 22). Every step of the way between those two challenges, Peter never failed to follow – even though he often stumbled.

God used Peter as the first great voice of the gospel during and after Pentecost.

How is our Spiritual walk with our LORD Jesus Christ? Let us make some self-analysis and come to the throne of grace today.

 

Stand firm in Christ

Great Commission

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let us remember the resurrected Lord Jesus’Great Commission.

Word:

When He (Jesus) was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” Luke 24: 30-32

Thought:

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Cor 4:4

Prayer:

Dear God open our eyes to see the mission fields that are ready for harvest. Help us see with a moving compassion the multitudes of people without someone to show them the way. In Jesus name. Amen.

Stand firm in Christ

DO NOT BE AFRAID. STAND FIRM.

Dear Friends in Christ,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

Word:

Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.” Exodus 14:13-31

Thought:

We will have days of Heaven on Earth when we remember God always and in all things.

Stand firm in Christ

The church of believers that meets at Christian Fellowship Centre (CFC) today commenced with a few families that first met together in Bangalore, India in August 1975. Led by Zac Poonen and Ian Robson, they decided to first be disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ themselves, and then to make disciples in obedience to the Lord’s commission in Matthew 28:18-20. They emphasized new birth, holiness of inner life, mutual love, moral purity, financial integrity and sharing God’s truth with others – founding every aspect of their lives on God’s Word alone.

Starting as a small House Church, this body of Christ has grown steadily in the understanding and experience of the New Covenant Life in the Spirit. Right from the start, and through its growth over four decades the same set of distinctives has become the DNA of this Church. We soon felt a burden to share these wonderful truths that had transformed our own lives with others, starting with a monthly paper on the overcoming life and a tape ministry, and conferences for like minded disciples. In 1981 the growing Church moved into a meeting hall constructed at 40, DaCosta Square, in Bangalore. 1982-1989 marked the beginnings of the work of planting churches in other cities and states in India.

1989-1995 was a very productive period in Zac Poonen’s book writing ministry, and in the coming years he published more than twenty books. By 1997 the audio tape outreach had reached many lands. In 1999 at the age of 60, Zac Poonen gave up Eldership of CFC, Bangalore in order to travel with the Word. Our Internet outreach started in 2003 and this period also saw planting of churches in other continents. In 2014, the Church at Bangalore, having completed forty years as a Church, and also having outgrown our old hall, moved into our current meeting hall at Paradise Enclave, Bellahalli, Bangalore

Eldership at CFC Bangalore:

Christian Fellowship Church has always sought to follow New Testament teaching with respect to leadership of a local church (Tit.1:5; Acts 14:23). The word Elders indicated as “Plural” shows the necessity of having multiple elders in a local church to maintain balance in the leadership. At Bangalore, our leadership consists of four Elders- Ian Robson, Newton, Charles Banna and Vettriselvan. As per biblical teaching, the expectation on every individual member of the church is to be subject to the authority of these elders in all matters concerning the local church (Heb.13:17; 1 Thess.5:12-13).

Jesus Tells the Parable of Two Men Who Prayed

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2

Word: Jesus Tells the Parable of Two Men Who Prayed Luke 18: 9 – 14

“O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner.”

LION

“For those who exalted themselves will be humbles, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke%2018%3A9-14&version=NIV

Thought: Self-righteousness is dangerous. It leads to pride, and it prevents one from learning anything from God. The tax collector’s prayer should be our prayer because we all need God’s mercy every day. Don’t let pride in your achievements cut you off from God.
