Ministry Needs – Last of 2015

Ministry Needs – Last of 2015

In the month of December I have sent out several messages detailing the needs of our schools in Kenya. These messages can be viewed at: http://gdwm.org/category/end-of-year-2015/ The response to these messages was good and all of our end of year projects were fully funded. We were even able to raise an additional $4000 to be […]

The Last Unopened Gift

The Last Unopened Gift

Romans 6:23

Did you see it? You may have missed it…but it was there. Don’t feel bad; most people overlook this one, but there is still time. Today, before the new year gets here, before all the decorations are put away, before all the other gifts are set aside, open it! Romans 6:23 “For the wages of […]

Alone For Christmas

Alone For Christmas

Ephesians 6:18

Today I have a short and simple message of encouragement and exhortation. The necessity of this message was revealed in a note I received at Christmas two years ago. ***** Hi Steve, First of all, Merry Christmas to you and your whole family. Yes, this season brings up some crumby memories, but being all alone […]

Day of Remembrance

Day of Remembrance

John 1:1,14

There are only a few more days to go! Only a few more days until…until what? Why is December 25th so special? What really is this day we call Christmas? The early church did not give much thought to the birth of Jesus. Of the four Gospels only Matthew and Luke even mention His birth, […]

Día de Conmemoración

Día de Conmemoración

Juan 1:1,14

Falta ahora pocos días hasta el 25 de Diciembre – solamente unos pocos días hasta – ¿hasta que? ¿Que es exactamente el 25 de Diciembre? ¿Que es este día que llamamos Navidad? La iglesia primitiva no pensó mucho del nacimiento de Jesús. De los cuatro evangelios solamente Mateo y Lucas hacen mención de Su nacimiento, […]

The First Move

The First Move

1 John 4:9

In our celebration of the birth of Christ, we know the focus of Christmas should be the eternal gift given through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. This season ought to irresistibly draw us nearer to God as we reflect on His wonderful gift of love. But perhaps there are times we need […]

El Primer Paso

El Primer Paso

1 Juan 4:9

En nuestra celebración del nacimiento de Cristo, sabemos que el enfoque de la Navidad debe de ser el regalo eterno dado a través del nacimiento, la vida, la muerte y la resurrección de Jesus. Esta época debe atraernos irresistiblemente a Dios mientras reflexionamos en Su maravilloso regalo de amor. Pero quizás hay tiempos en los […]

The Gift of True Forgiveness

The Gift of True Forgiveness

Ephesians 4:32

It’s hard to believe there are only a few more days until Christmas. Yes, as the song says: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” It really is wonderful! We are flooded with Christmas music, Christmas lights, and lots of Christmas “activities.” And although the season contains many distractions which attempt to pull us […]

El Regalo del Perdón Verdadero

El Regalo del Perdón Verdadero

Efesios 4:32

Si, como dice la canción: “Es el tiempo mas maravilloso del año!” Estamos inundados con música navideña, luces navideñas, y muchas “actividades” navideñas. Y aunque los “adornos” navideños son frecuentamente distracciones, la mayoría de nosotros somos capaces de ver mas allá de la brillantina. A pesar que el mundo intenta distraernos, generalmente hacemos tiempo para […]

Kenya Ministry Needs – 3

Kenya Ministry Needs – 3

Two weeks ago I said that during the month of December, I will be sending out several messages – one per week – detailing specific needs for our Kenya ministry. In the first week I mentioned the need for school supplies and Bibles for our two schools. Last week I wrote about our food distribution […]

Whom We Will Serve

Whom We Will Serve

Joshua 24:15

Joshua led the people of Israel into the promised land of Canaan and helped them fight many battles. Toward the end of his life, Joshua gathered the leaders of Israel for some final encouragement: “You yourselves have seen everything the Lord your God has done to all these nations for your sake; it was the […]

A Quién Serviremos

A Quién Serviremos

Josué 24:15

Josué llevó al pueblo de Israel a la tierra prometida de Canaán y les ayudó a pelear muchas batallas. Acercándose el fin de su vida, Josué reunió a los líderes de Israel para animarles una vez más: “Ustedes han visto todo lo que el Señor su Dios ha hecho con todas aquellas naciones a favor […]
