The Spring of Living Water

“I will say, ‘My dear children of Israel, keep in mind the road you took when you were carried off. Mark off in your minds the landmarks. Make a mental note of telltale signs marking the way back. Return, my dear children of Israel. Return to these cities of yours” (Jeremiah 31:21, NET). Jeremiah was…

It Is Better for You That I Go – John 16:7

What was it like to be told by the man you had dedicated your life to that he was leaving you behind? The disciples left everything; their families, livelihoods, their whole lives to serving him. Have you ever dedicated yourself to something on that level? To be so torn, knowing you should trust him because…

We Put on Love

Today I discuss Gods concern for each one of us. As individuals we all experience things in unique ways. It is important to put on a mind of love when relating with each other. Colossians 3:12 “So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness,…

Back to the Roots – The Gospel of Mark

This week we will start the Gospel of Mark in our Back to the Roots series of the New Testament study. As we study each of the books of the New Testament, we want to identify the differences in each of the gospels, and the purposes for each one of the books. For instance, each…

Why Are We Here and Why Are We Together?

Today I bring a communion message about love and oneness. We come humbly asking our Father to wash us and equip us to walk in this new day. Isaiah 43:19 “Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in…

He Is Looking For A Change Of Heart

Today I teach about the law of Jesus. Some people think it is legalistic, but today we explore it as a beneficial way of relating. Deuteronomy 5:16 “Honor your father and mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, that your days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with you on…

Back to the Roots – The Gospel of Matthew

For several weeks we have been studying the Gospel of Matthew together, and we are only about half way through it. It has been an amazing time of study and discussion about the characteristics of the book of Matthew. The Gospel of Matthew was written to address the Jews, and because of that it is…

Turn and Strengthen Your Brother

Today I bring a communion message about strengthening our brothers. When Jesus washed the disciples’ feet, he was loving them and giving them an example of what they would need to do for each other. John 13:34 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you,…

When we Walk in the Faith of Abraham

Today I relate a walk of faith to the life of Abraham. Abraham faced many challenges throughout his life, but he faithfully pressed on in his walk with God. We too face many challenges, will we waiver in disbelief or will we continue to trust in God’s plan for us? Romans 4:20 “yet, with respect…

Salvation is More Than Forgiveness of Sin

Today I convey Gods desire for a relationship through salvation. Galatians 4:4‭-‬5 “But when the time was right, God sent his Son, and a woman gave birth to him. His Son obeyed the Law, so he could set us free from the Law, and we could become God’s children.” As children it is important for…

Don’t Carry the Idols of the Past

Today I urge us to set our sights on God’s plan. Too often we find ourselves clinging to the past and making idols out of memories. We must let go of yesterday and trust God as He leads us forward. 1 Corinthians 13:9‭-‬10 “For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when…

What is Triggered by Our Prayers?

Today I talk about the importance of prayer. Whether we identify it as such or not, it is likely that what we are facing today is the result of prayers or lack of prayers. We often pray with a preconceived idea of what we think we need, but God’s answers do not always look the…

Why is Maturity Important?

Today I continue imploring us to seek the truth and grow in our walk with God. There are many lies that come to hold us back and divide us, but Christ has opened the door for us to grow together in oneness and love. Ephesians 4:15-16 “but speaking the truth in love, we are to…

Back To The Roots – Bible Study

While working on my Master of Divinity degree, I studied about Christian faith and history,  learned about the Jewish roots of Christianity,  and the fact that Jesus was a Rabbi that taught His disciples according to the traditions of His time.  So, I thought it would be good to go back and read the New…

Am I Open to Hear the Truth

Today I encourage you to ask yourself an important question. Am I open to hear the truth? In John 8:32 we read, “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Each one of us have a different perception of the Truth. Without being open to hear the truth in love…

When Love is the only Law…

It is interesting to understand that when God first took the people of Israel out of Egypt, He was separating a people to Himself by making a covenant with them through the giving of the Torah, the first five books of the Bible. One of the most significant parts of this process is the fact…

We Have Been Included Through Christ

Today I entreat you to dig into the scriptures about God’s plan for inclusion. Sometimes we might think that for God to accept one He has to reject another, but He is unlimited! 2 Chronicles 6:14. “He said, ‘O Lord , the God of Israel, there is no god like You in heaven or on…

A Willingness to Hear and Obey

Today I reiterate how just having the word is not enough, we must hear and obey Gods word. What makes the distinction between hearing and not hearing? A willingness to do His will. John 7:17 “If anyone is willing to do Gods will, they will know of the teaching, whether it is of God or…

Abraham – A Walk By Faith

I have been thinking a lot about Abraham and his life, so I finally went back to read his life story in the Scriptures. It was so good for me to read it, because it really made sense to me to think about Abraham as our father in the faith. I thought about the fact…

What Can We Learn From the Wilderness Experience?

Every year we have a lot of fun celebrating the biblical Feast of Tabernacles, we spend time together, rehearsing the stories of the time that the people of Israel wandered in the wilderness for forty years, living in tents. We even have a camp out weekend where the kids are taught about the meaning of…

The Lesson of the Wilderness

Today I begin to explain the wilderness experience. God was with the Israelites the entire time, but it was a time of teaching His people. In everything we go through there is one thing God is trying to teach us – trust in Him and trust in His love for us. Deuteronomy 7:9 “Know therefore…

Parable: Pray at all times (Luke 18:1)

Today I impart a new revelation of faith. Our personal relationship with the Lord will trigger effective prayer. We must have faith that God wants us to be persistent and work with Him in what He is doing through our prayers. Isaiah 62:6 “On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; All day and…

Parable: We are All Managers

Today I teach about the parable in Luke 16:1-13. God’s grace is unending and He desires a relationship with us no matter how great our sins. If we know God’s grace, we are managers responsible to share it. Micah 7:18 “Who is a God like You, who pardons iniquity And passes over the rebellious act…
