Sermon March 29, 2013: It is finished

Come with me to John chapter nineteen verse thirty, John 19:30. There's seven words, seven expressions, seven statements that Jesus made when He was in the cross that have been recorded in Scripture.

Crossing the Jordan, conquering Jericho: Where is God taking León de Judá - and what will it take to get there?

Only a people willing to pay the price to become a Generation of Radical Obedience will ever plumb the world-transforming depths of God’s Amazing Mercy and Love.

I would like this morning to share a word with you that has been burning in my heart at these times, like Pastora Meche was saying. Many years I lived in Mexico. And all of a sudden, it wasn't something we planned for a long time like you'd like it to be, all of a sudden the Lord removed the floor beneath me just all of a sudden, and there in Mexico there were tremendous opportunity doors opening.
