Believe in God

God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways,in these last days has spoken to us in His Son,whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. (Heb 1:1-2) I believe in God.” “I believe in Jesus.” These words are…

Where Am I Leading

 But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. James 1:22 There is a question that many of us have wondered about – Where is it leading? I sometimes wonder when I am making a lesson, where am I leading them? As I teach my kids, I wonder as well.…

Caroling: Psalms 27: 5-7

Yesterday was my first time to go Christmas caroling. I had so much fun! My family and I felt so good after caroling that we just kept singing on our way home. This was the baby’s first time as well, and she just wanted us to keep singing.  This was a great experience for our…

The Bible

The following quotation is copied from the Introduction of the International English Bible. This is the translation I was reading from on Sunday. This Book (the Holy Bible) contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its…

Up or Down

Growing up in Mexico, I was exposed to soccer (futbol) all the time until I heard of the Cowboys, an American football team, who instead of kicking the ball would throw it.  They didn’t play with a round ball but rather an oval shaped ball. One time they put it on TV.  When it came…

Be Thankful

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I know sometimes we can focus on all the food, but I believe the real reason we like it so much is because it is about family getting together and getting to spending time with each other. Sometimes we get so see siblings and other relatives that we…

Are You Cold?

Last Sunday night after service rain was pouring hard and on top of that it was cold. I am not fond of cold weather, so needless to say I was a little grumpy. But we were prepared with warm clothes and an umbrella. Later on that evening my son asked me, why do we get…

Veterans Day

[quote name=”Colossians 2:13-14″] You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross.[/quote] Driving into work…

Increase Our Faith

Do you want to increase your faith? In Luke 17:5 “And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.” They asked Jesus for more faith because they have just heard some hard lessons. These lessons were hard to accomplish if they didn’t have enough faith. They knew that if they were going to do…
