With Pentecost drawing near, the minister of Bangkok Immanuel Church encouraged the members to be the doers of God’s Word and be closer to God’s Word by meditating on the Word day and night during the recent Sunday Service.

Reflecting upon the message, a member shared, “Despite being busy with my studies, I tend to read the Word of God daily. However, these days, I came to see that I neglect my spiritual life and face many difficulties. Thank God for the message that He reminded me once again that I should spend time to read the Word of God and live out daily.”

Another member also shared, “I learned that I should obey the Word, not analyzing it whether it’s reasonable or not. When the Word of God is being proclaimed, I should be humble and obedient to follow it. I hope that my heart is like an innocent child who obeys His will.”

May the Lord bless the members to ponder on His word and become the ones who practice the Word daily to be closer to God.

The ministers of Bangkok Immanuel Church have recently reorganized their evangelism approach in order to communicate the Gospel effectively.

Recognizing majority People being steadfast in holding on to their religious worldviews and are not ready to spend much time listening to explanation of the Gospel from strangers, the ministers have recently employed the ‘1-Minute Strategy’ where they intend to share the crux of the Gospel within one minute.

Through employing this method, they found many people who are willing to hear their testimony of the Gospel. The ministers began by introducing themselves, before sharing the Gospel and programs offered by the church. By the grace of God, some responded positively.

A minister shared, “Recently our neighbor passed away by car accident after coming back from the wedding ceremony of his son. I learnt that we do not know about tomorrow, maybe we can’t meet that person for the second time that we meet. What we can do for them is to share Good News to them as soon as possible. I hope that we can catch the time to save one more soul.”

Please pray that God will open the door for the new method of evangelism and many people will come to hear the Gospel and receive Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. (Romans 10:17)

Through the message that was taken from Mark 13:32-37, the congregants were exhorted, “We must be ready because the Son of Man will come at an hour when we do not expect Him to be. He will come with glory and power. Let us be on our guards and be alert to prepare ourselves well and have the hope to meet the Lord always”.

I attended the funeral of my friend’s father, God moved my heart to share the Gospel to my family members and cousins. Through the message again, God reminded me to share the Gospel and be alert to live my life daily.”

Bible study

Encouraging hearts to walk together with the Lord on the path of the Cross, Bangkok Immanuel Church held Bible study sessions during the afternoon of Palm Sunday which centered on the final moments of Jesus Christ in His path towards to the Cross.

The Bible lectures centered on John 18-20, where the members were guided to meditate on the prayer of Jesus Christ at Gethsamane and the path that He took towards the Cross. Every participant was deeply moved by the lectures that felt the deep love of Jesus towards them as they share the grace with tears.

A member shared, “I came to see the suffering of Jesus Christ, yet how He determined to walk on the path till the end after the prayer. Love without obedience, obedience without love and prayer to receive the power to love and to obey is the way to carry the Cross. I pray that I can walk this path of faith with such heart of Jesus till the end.”

It is with a great hope that as the love of Jesus entered deeply in their hearts, it will give them strength to walk on this path of faith with the Lord as Easter nears.
