Sermon April 29, 2006 : Jeremiah 29

Jeremiah, Chapter 29, one of my favorite passages in Scripture, sort of a theme of my life as I think of the Lord that I am serving, and what I can expect from that God, what I can expect from the Christianity that I engaged in and that I practice, my understanding of God and of the kingdom that I inhabit, and what I can expect about the future as well, each of you. This message is for you, as you look towards the future, what can you expect from God?  Read More »

Sermon April 22, 2006 : The rich, young man

“.....Teacher, what good things must I do to get eternal life?’ Why you ask me about what is good? Jesus replied. There’s only one who is good. If you want to enter life obey the commandments’. Which ones?, the man inquired. Jesus replied ‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother, and love your neighbor as yourself’. ‘All these things are kept’, the young man said. ‘What so do I lack?’. Jesus answered ‘if you want to be perfect though, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have a treasure in heaven. Then come follow me.’  Read More »

Sermon March 25, 2005 : Acevedo - What does it mean to be a friend of God?

The last couple of weeks Pastor Greg has been showing us about prayer and coming to God with prayer, and the fact that, you know, the Lord knows what you need but the most interesting thing, He has…., remember what he said?, pastor Greg. The Lord has wired the world so that in order for us to get whatever it is that we need from God, we actually need to talk to him. So he’s arranged things, God has gone out of his way to force us to talk to Him if there’s anything that we need from Him.  Read More »

Sermon March 4, 2006 : Why do we fast?

It’s not a very popular subject: fasting. How many say, yes, Lord, alleluia, fasting. Yes, I’m going to do it! It’s not something that lends itself to that kind of enthusiasm and yet it is a very powerful thing. It’s sort of a spiritual steroids, if you will. That’s what fasting is, and yet the comparison that occurred to me when I was thinking about that just a few minutes ago, is not really complete because steroids smacks of cosmetics, kind of doing things, taking the shortcut to strength and performance. While actually fasting is a legitimate way of seeking strength, and of seeking spiritual muscularity, is that a word? If it isn’t one of you, experts, correct me later on. But, it is a wonderful way to obtain that energy, that power that we need as believers.  Read More »

Sermon February 26, 2006 (morning) : Paul Jehle - Interceding for Revival

I want to share with you about interceding for revival. There’s a rising tide of revival in New England. There are more and more prayer meetings taking place, more and more believers who are hungry for revival. We are in a tide, a flood tide, of the Holy Spirit, but we need guidance in our prayers. Intercession needs to take on a strategic element. We can no longer just randomly pray and ask God to just flood the culture. What we need to do is be harnessed with his plan, and harnessed with his desires, so that we are praying his will and his designs for this culture, at this time because of what He wants to do. That’s why we need guidance to begin to understand prayer.  Read More »

Sermon February 25, 2006 : Luke 5

Luke 5, I’d like to speak to you about servants. In my mind, as a matter of fact, last night we had a meeting with the team that’s leading this effort to sort of, send off this English ministry, and we were talking about the need for people. Also Greg was suggesting to do different things for ministry. We really want to raise our servants right from this group, rather than import them from the Spanish service.  Read More »
