Devote Yourself To Prayer

Posted in English, Erik Luna by immanuelfellowship on May 31st, 2015

This week Erick gave us an encouragement to be devoted to prayer. He encouraged us to remember that faith in prayer does not mean that God does whatever you want him to. Sometimes God answers our prayers in ways we could never imagine. Sometimes when we are praying what we are asking for is destructive and God is the perfect father who will never give us something destructive even if we are asking for it. Erick gives examples from his own life of surprising ways that God has answered his prayers. He also shares some times in his life when it seems like God wasn’t answering his prayer, but looking back years later he can see that what God was doing was wonderful.




Words Of Eternal Life

Posted in English, Mike Phillips by immanuelfellowship on May 24th, 2015

In John 6 Jesus gave a difficult message about eternal life. His message was hard to understand so many of Jesus’ disciples abandoned Him. He asked the twelve disciples if they also wanted to leave. Peter said, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.”

This week Mike shares some of the passages where Jesus talks about eternal life. We have a responsibility to study Jesus’ teachings about eternal life. Not just study the words of eternal life, we need to receive them into our hearts and live them out.




Romans 4:13-25

This week we take a closer look at what real faith is. Faith is essential for us to receive the gift of justification, but faith is also necessary for many aspects of our Christian walk. Therefore we need to have a good understanding of what Biblical faith is and what it is not. In this message Mike talks in more detail about Biblical faith that is necessary for our Christian walk.




Romans 4:1-12

This week we continue to discuss how important a good understanding of Justification is. To do this Mike goes into some of the history of the church in Europe. In the 1500’s there was a young priest, Martin Luther, who lived during a time when the church was extremely corrupt. People paid to look at relics, have indulgences, and worked hard to make themselves right with God. In the course of studying Romans, Martin Luther realized that we are justified by faith in Jesus’ sacrifice. This realization revolutionized his faith in God, his ministry, the church, and history.
