With Our Bodies – by Sarah Troxel

With Our Bodies – by Sarah Troxel

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

[Note: My daughter, Sarah, is now a college student. Many of you enjoyed her messages about urban ministry this summer. I told Sarah she is welcome to write messages anytime. This is one she sent me this week.] I will never forget a day in class last semester when my short and sweet, sixty year […]

His Purpose in Pain

His Purpose in Pain

Romans 5:1-5

[Note: I first sent this message in January, 2013. This was a difficult time. And though Kaylee is doing well today, all of our lives have been forever changed. Our diet has certainly been dramatically altered. But more importantly, my understanding of God and the issues of pain and suffering have been deepened and solidified. […]

Clear Line of Communication

Clear Line of Communication

Luke 6:12-13

Communication is a key part of any relationship. Without proper communication, a relationship will slowly drift apart and feel isolated. This is true of friends and married couples, and certainly true in our relationship with God. Without communication, we begin to drift and will soon be unable to even recognize His voice. When faced with […]

Clara Linea de Comunicación

Clara Linea de Comunicación

Lucas 6:12-13

Comunicación es una parte clave de toda relación. Sin comunicación apropiada, una relación lentamente se desvía y se aísla. Esta es una verdad entre amigos, matrimonios, y ciertamente es verdad en nuestra relación con Dios. Sin comunicación apropiada, comenzamos a desviarnos y pronto seremos incapaces de reconocer Su voz. Cuando somos enfrentados con cargas repentinas […]

Foundation of Truth

Foundation of Truth

Proverbs 2:3-5

Six hundred years ago, there were groups of people who believed the earth was flat. In fact they didn’t just believe the earth was flat, they “knew” the earth was flat. Because of this belief, they also believed it was impossible to sail around the world. Of course, their view was warped and limited since […]

Fundación de La Verdad

Fundación de La Verdad

Proverbios 2:3-5

Hace seiscientos años, había grupos de personas que pensaban que la tierra era plana. De hecho no solo creían que la tierra era plana, “sabían” que la tierra era plana. Debido a esta creencia, también creían que era imposible navegar alrededor del mundo. Por supuesto su visión era distorsionada y limitada puesto que estaba construida […]

New Every Morning

New Every Morning

Lamentations 3:22-23

God loved us so much that He gave His Son as a sacrifice for our sin, that through faith we might be brought back into a full and intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father for all eternity. I think we often forget the magnitude of this love: we were dead and He provided us a […]

Nueva Cada Mañana

Nueva Cada Mañana

Lamentaciones 3:22-23

Dios nos amo tanto que dio a su Hijo como sacrificio por nuestros pecados, de manera que por fe podamos volver a una relación completa e íntima con nuestro Padre Celestial por toda la eternidad. Creo que a menudo olvidamos la magnitud de este amor: ¡estábamos muertos y El nos dio una forma de vivir! […]

A True Heart of Thanksgiving

A True Heart of Thanksgiving

Acts 16:25

In the message “Praise Him Even More” we considered our command, as well as our need, to rejoice and praise in order to sustain Spiritual life. A heart that has not been transformed by the Spirit of God cannot truly praise, and a transformed heart that does not praise will surely cease to pump Spiritual […]

Un Corazón de Agradecimiento Verdadero

Un Corazón de Agradecimiento Verdadero

Hechos 16:25

En el mensaje “Alabemosle a El Aún Más” consideramos nuestro mandato al igual como nuestra necesidad de regocijarnos y alabar para poder sostener una vida espiritual. Un corazón que no ha sido transformado por el Espíritu de Dios no puede alabar verdaderamente, y un corazón transformado que no alabe seguramente cesaría de bombear vida Espiritual […]

Praise Him Even More

Praise Him Even More

Philippians 4:4

I don’t recall ever being asked to explain the importance of breathing. It is pretty well accepted that breathing is a good idea and that we should do it many times every day; a lack of breathing is definitely bad for our physical health! And it is not an exaggeration to say that praise is […]

Alabémosle Aún Más

Alabémosle Aún Más

Filipenses 4:4

Yo no recuerdo que alguna vez se me halla pedido explicar la importancia de respirar. Es muy bien aceptado que respirar es una buena idea y deberíamos hacerlo muchas veces cada día; la falta de respirar es definitivamente mala para nuestra salud física. No es una exageración decir que alabar a Dios es así de […]
