Welcome to our weekend service! Encounter God in a time of exuberant praise and heartfelt worship, and allow the Word of God to renew your faith.Faith may take you far in your quest with God, but love is what sustains you in your journey with Him. In this sermon, Pastor Aries Zulkarnain teaches us that as we mature in our walk, we may have to endure tests of love, just as Abraham did when God instructed him to sacrifice his son Isaac. God never gave a reason why, but Abraham reasoned that the Lord could raise his son from the dead. How can a Christian reach that level of trust in God? Pastor Aries spells out two things that are necessary: one, we must be fully convinced of God's love, even when He is silent. Jesus' death on the cross speaks of God's love louder than words can. Two, we must be awakened by God's love, even when He seems to be asleep. We may understand with our mind that our suffering is not a sign God doesn't love us, but our hearts may still hurt. In such times, only a genuine encounter with the love of God can turn head knowledge into a revelation of the heart.
