Bangkok, Thailand – Seeking to hasten mission breakthrough, the members of Bangkok Immanuel Church gathered for a graceful fellowship meeting recently where they were challenged to pursue changes in their lives actively everyday.

Citing the example of the lie of eagles, Sister Aew shared, “Eagles usually have long lives, up to an average of 70 years old. If they want to live a long life, they must make an important decision when they reach the age of 40. At this stage, their beaks, claws and wings are covered with thick feathers that made them difficult to catch preys and fly.”

She continued, “They now face with two choices in their lives: either starving to death or going through a process of change that is to remove the beak by striking its mouth towards the stones, followed by a process of removing claws and features. These processes usually last for 150 days before they could enjoy a new beak, claws and features. However, by making this challenging decision, they can live 30 years longer, which is a life that is magnificent and grand.”

Hearing this example, the members were then challenged if they are prompt in seeking changes in their lives. Everyone responded and took turns to share their experiences together, thus creating an atmosphere that was full of grace. After a time of sharing, they was also a time of prayer where everyone uphold one another to be empowered by God to change everyday.

May God continue to guide the church members to constantly make bold decisions to change and strive to become more Christ-like each day.
