Sermon March 20, 2005 : II Corinthians 9:6

In the 30 minutes or so that we have left we’re going to be reading out the Second Letter to the Corinthians, chapter 9. There in verse 6, the Apostle Paul reads: “…. Remember this, whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is also able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”  Read More »

Sermon January 16, 2005 : Galatians 2:20

Galatians 2, verse 20, and repeat with me in Spanish when I read in Spanish. It’s just verse 20, and just a rough translation here: “with Christ I’m jointly crucified and I no longer live, but rather Jesus Christ lives in me, and that which I now live in the flesh, I live it the faith of the son of God who loved me and gave himself for me”, so that’s the English, the Lion of Juda translation, Galatians chapter 2, verse 20.  Read More »

Sermon November 14, 2004 : Romans 12 (Part 8)

Let’s go to Romans Chapter 2. I think by now most of the congregation can open with their eyes closed the 12th chapter, Romans because we’ve been there for many, many weeks now. We’ve been studying that chapter very, very deep contents and going through different points and examination, the call to Christian life that reflects the values, the character of Jesus Christ, the fruit of the spirit.

Sermon Nov. 7, 2004 : Persistent faith (Matthew 15)

Let’s pray. Father, we’ve come to the point today of sharing your word together and I’m always enthusiastic at this part because I know the life that it brings to us, Lord. The praise and worship is so important, it connects us to you, Lord. We worship you also through our tithes and offerings, but now is the moment in which we open our hearts and spirits to receive your word. Help us to have a teachable heart, Lord Jesus that even though it may be a word we have heard before that we can always receive something new from it. Your word is living and active and I pray for that life to touch our lives today. In the name of Jesus. Amen.  Read More »
