Motivated by Christ’s Love

by Pastor Timothy

2 Corinthians 5:14 “For the love of Christ constraineth us…” Philippians 1:21 “For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.”   The love of Jesus Christ in giving Himself up to die to save His people from their sins is love unbounded, far and above what we can fathom. This loving […]

Corre, Para que Puedas Obtenerlo!

by Pastor Timothy

Notamos cómo se celebraron los Juegos Isthmian (similares a los Juegos Olímpicos) en Corinto. Pablo usó esta analogía muy familiar para llamar a la […]

Better Than Gold And Honey

by Pastor Timothy

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Psalm 19:10 The context of this verse reveals that David was emphasizing the value and sweetness of God’s word. The Scriptures are much more valuable than wealth and possessions. That is easy to believe intellectually, but […]

Run, That Ye May Obtain

by Pastor Timothy

A few weeks ago, I preached from 1 Corinthians 9:24, “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.” We noted how the Isthmian Games (similar to the Olympics) were held in Corinth. Paul used this very familiar analogy to call […]

Watching Jesus Pray

by Pastor Timothy

I am thankful that we were able to at least have some connection with each other yesterday through the live stream sermon. Let me just remind us of some of the points from that message “Watching Jesus Pray“. Jesus prayed! If God incarnate desired and felt the need to pray, how much more should we […]

Mirame A Los Ojos

by Pastor Timothy

He estado leyendo lentamente un libro pequeño de Edward Welch para el corazón ansioso. Hasta ahora, he sido desafiado y bendecido. Welch enfatiza acertadamente que mirar las Escrituras como un medio para combatir la ansiedad y el miedo pecaminoso es una de nuestras mayores fuentes de esperanza y fortaleza. Sin embargo, también admite que a […]
