Step of Faith

Step of Faith

Matthew 14:28-29

Today was a busy day! Early this morning we heard that King Herod killed John the Baptist. Jesus seemed to take this news pretty hard; “When Jesus heard what had happened, He withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place” (Matthew 14:13). I knew He wanted to be alone, but the crowds kept following Him. […]

What It Means To Forgive

What It Means To Forgive

Ephesians 4:31-32

In the message “Forgive As He Forgave” we saw that our forgiveness of others should be based on recognizing the magnitude of forgiveness we have been given through faith in Jesus. A true understanding of God’s mercy toward us ought to compel us to be merciful to others. But still, forgiveness remains difficult and somewhat […]

Dance of Thanksgiving

Dance of Thanksgiving

James 1:2-4

[Note: I sent this message out on Thanksgiving, 2013. Today, as I consider my family 4 years later, I’m reminded that I have so much to be thankful for!] Today is Thanksgiving in the United States. I know this isn’t a global holiday, but perhaps you will forgive me if I use this day to […]

Forgive As He Forgave

Forgive As He Forgave

Colossians 3:13

It seems like sooner or later everyone gets mistreated and hurt. Many times the actions against us are unintentional, but other times they can be extremely malicious. Suddenly, this hurt begins to invade every other area of our life. We carry a heavy burden which we know we don’t deserve – and which we certainly […]

Perdonemos Como El Perdonó

Perdonemos Como El Perdonó

Colosenses 3:13

Parece que tarde o temprano todos somos maltratados y heridos. En muchas ocasiones las acciones en contra nuestra no son intencionales, pero en otras ocasiones pueden ser extremadamente maliciosas. Repentinamente este daño comienza a invadir cada area de nuestra vida. Llevamos una carga pesada que estamos concientes que no deseamos – y que ciertamente no […]

Build All For His Glory

Build All For His Glory

Haggai 1:5-6

The last two messages have considered how we ought to use a different set of priorities in forming our goals and plans. Our goal should be to fully submit to our Heavenly Father, and our plans must always remain under His control. We also saw that a life submitted to God is full of opportunity […]

Construyamos Todo para Su Gloria

Construyamos Todo para Su Gloria

Hageo 1:5-6

Los últimos dos mensajes han considerado cómo debemos utilizar un juego de prioridades diferentes para formar nuestras metas y planes. Nuestra meta debe ser someternos completamente a nuestro Padre Celestial, y nuestros planes deben siempre permanecer bajo Su control. También vimos que una vida sometida a Dios está llena de oportunidad y entusiasmo. Pero tal […]

Great Expectations

Great Expectations

Philippians 1:20

In the message “Careful Thought To Our Ways” we saw how God is the Director of our steps and how we must carefully (and prayerfully) develop goals and plans which glorify His name. And though our true goal should always be to fully release our life to God and worship Him for all eternity, each […]

Careful Thought To Our Ways

Careful Thought To Our Ways

Proverbs 14:8

The motivational speakers of our day want us to set great goals for our life: “Where do you want to be in two, five, or ten years? What type of lifestyle do you want when you retire?” We are encouraged to set goals slightly beyond our reach, and then instructed how to create a plan […]
