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 […]

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 el mensaje “Día de Conmemoración” vimos que el enfoque de Navidad siempre debe estar en recordar el regalo dado a través del nacimiento, vida, muerte, y resurrección de Jesús. Esta época debe atraernos irresistiblemente a Dios mientras reflexionamos en Su regalo de amor. El nacimiento de Jesús nos da un conocimiento más profundo acerca […]

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, […]

Ministry Update – End of Year Giving

Ministry Update – End of Year Giving

End of year giving is very important to this ministry. Many years we raise nearly half of our budget needs during the month of December. It’s a wonderful blessing to see how people respond with support, but it also causes more than a little anxiety – perhaps this points to the need for more faith […]

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 […]

Strengthened By Hardship

Strengthened By Hardship

Acts 14:21-22

On Paul’s first missionary journey, he traveled with Barnabas to Cyprus and then up through several cities in Galatia. After preaching the gospel in Antioch, Iconium, Lystra, and Derbe, they returned back through the same cities so they could strengthen those who had recently placed their faith in Jesus. Acts 14:21-22 “They returned to Lystra, […]

A Life of Discipleship

A Life of Discipleship

Mark 4:14-20

When Jesus told His closest followers, “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19), He wasn’t just talking about the one-time event of Salvation; He was referring to the life-long process of “teaching them to obey everything I have commanded” (Matthew 28:20). The process of discipleship actually begins prior to Salvation as we are […]

Una Vida de Discipulado

Una Vida de Discipulado

Marcos 4:14-20

Cuando Jesús les dijo a sus seguidores mas cercanos, “vayan y hagan discípulos de todas las naciones” (Mateo 28:19), El no estaba hablando solamente del evento único de la Salvación; El estaba refiriéndose a un proceso de por vida de “enseñándoles a obedecer todo lo que les he mandado a ustedes” (Mateo 28:20). Este proceso […]
