  • Sunday Service: My Spirit Rejoices in God My Savior

    22 Dec, 2019 – Berlin Immanuel Church ended the Christmas retreat on Sunday with a sermon on Mary’s Song in Luke 1:46-55. Meditating on Mary’s response to the good news of the coming of the Savior, we can be reminded of the meaning of Christmas. Mary’s first reaction was confusion and disbelief – Luke 1:29, 34, but she humbled herself and accepted that this is not about her – “I am a virgin” – but about what God is doing. We always fall in the error of thinking of ourselves first, of what we have done or what we have to do. The rich young man who met the Savior but left empty in Luke 18 or Nicodemus in John…

    SSunday Service: Sealed with the Promised Holy Spirit, the Guarantee of our Inheritance

    10 Nov, 2019 – Berlin Immanuel Church continued in the series on Ephesians in chapter 1 verses 13-14, focusing on the sealing with the Holy Spirit. When Paul first entered the city of Ephesus in Acts 19, he found disciples who heard the message of truth and believed, but were not yet sealed with the Spirit. The experience of Pentecost, the pouring out of the Holy Spirit, the baptism that Christ gives, is essential in a life of a Christian. Without the Spirit there is no life of God, no power, no revival neither in the church nor in the individual. It is through the Holy Spirit that the love of God is poured out in our hearts (Rom 5:5),…

    Sunday Service: He Predestined Us to Adoption as Sons to Himself

    22 September, 2019 – Berlin Immanuel Church continued in the series on Ephesians in chapter 1 verse 5. Apostle Paul, writing to the Gentile Christians brings out a Roman legal term ‘adoption’ that they were closely familiar with, as many of them would have been slaves and servants. No matter what the position of the person getting adopted was before, even if he was a slave, after adoption he would enjoy the same rights and privilege as a natural child. This term emphasizes the status and position we have as children of God. Paul wants us to realize that we are firmly in the hands of both the Son and the Father (Jn 10:27-29) and no one can snatch us…

    Wednesday Service: Paul Before Festus

    Berlin Immanuel Church members gathered for Wednesday service, continuing in Acts 25. After two years of the apostle being held in custody under Felix, a new governor, Festus, comes to Caesarea. The high priest in Jerusalem had changed as well, but Paul’s situation was still the same. The Jews still breathed hatred and death towards the apostle and the Roman governor wasn’t able to do what was right and release Paul despite knowing the accusations against him had no evidence. Being a new governor in the province, he was more interested in gaining favor with the Jews and giving Paul over to them, rather than upholding the Roman law and protecting her citizen. Luke records a story of those who…
