Greatness of God

The unusual Sunday meeting of the church “Philadelphia” on September 5 reminded all the present that the church is the big family that celebrates all the important and touching moments in lives of one another. That day eleven people who had been baptized the previous day had an opportunity to be baptized with the Holy Spirit according to the Scriptures. The pastors and the whole church prayed for these people so that they could receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit and their supernatural manifestations in life.

Having announced about their decision to get married Tatiana Susloparova and Aleksej Malykh celebrated the engagement. The church shared their excitement and joy in prayer and asked God to bless the young couple.

The church saw the video about the construction works of the praying house and then pastors Vladimir Piguzov and Oled Malykh, the members of the church council, drew attention to the long-awaited and crucial moment — the finishing of the church building construction. Now the church should unite more than ever and be one in prayers and money collecting. What can each of us do for it? What can we do for God?

The Sunday sermon of senior pastor Pavel Zhelnovakov suggested the following topic — greatness of our God. «The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in His justice and great righteousness, He does not oppress. Therefore, men revere Him, for does He not have regard for all the wise in heart?» (Job 37:23-24) Awe before God is sacred and given by the understanding of the personality of the One who can love so much, who came to the earth in flesh and died to save us. Thinking of God’s power we can talk about His greatness as Creator and Artist, who made all the tiny details that we are fascinated by. Lives of many Christians and the Bible are full of stories about God’s care. God can rule the whole universe and our destinies while we are sometimes so obstinate and rough. «Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered» (Matthew 10:29-30). The Lord cares about everybody’s life. Our trust in God gives us a chance to be safely in His hands.
