Señor, mantennos alegres ¡en Cristo nuestro Rey!

1 Corintios 15:20-28 ¿Cómo ha estado tu estado de ánimo últimamente? Le comentaba al Pastor Radunzel el otro día, “Es bueno que la temporada del Fin de los Tiempos caiga durante las elecciones de nuestro país”. Las elecciones son un momento feo, ya sea que tu candidato preferido gane o

Lord, keep us joyful in Christ our King!

1 Corinthians 15:20-28 So, how has your mood been recently? I was commenting to Pastor Radunzel the other day, “It is a good thing that the season of End Time falls during our country’s elections.” Elections are an ugly time, whether your preferred candidate happens to win or lose. How

Lord, keep us watchful for our triumph!

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 One of the hardest things about being a Christian, I think, is to believe that in spite of everything you are still winning. Not that this life is a contest, but when you consider all the daily reminders of failure--your health is deteriorating, your marriage isn’t exactly

Señor, ¡manténnos atentos a nuestro triunfo!

1 Tesalonicenses 4:13-18 Una de las cosas más difíciles de ser cristiano, diría yo, es creer que a pesar de todo sigues ganando. No es que esta vida sea un concurso, pero cuando consideras todos los recordatorios diarios del fracaso: tu salud se está deteriorando, tu matrimonio no es exactamente

Señor, ¡tenednos en cuenta el juicio!

1 Tesalonicenses 5:1-11 Bueno, puedo decirles una cosa. La segunda venida de Jesucristo no estaba en mi mente la semana pasada. Mi carro se averió (otra vez). A mi esposa le tuvieron que extraer dos de sus dientes. Luego hubo la elección. Luego las secuelas de la elección. Pero tenía

Lord, Keep us Mindful of the Judgment!

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 Well, I can tell you one thing. The Second Coming of Jesus Christ was not in the forefront of my mind this past week. My van broke down (again). My wife had two of her teeth extracted. Then there was the election. Then the aftermath of the

Señor, ¡mantennos fieles a tu Palabra!

Mateo 10:16-23 No diría que una serpiente es lo primero en lo que pienso cuando hablo con discípulos de Cristo. Las serpientes tienden a tener una connotación negativa debido a la maldición de Dios a la serpiente en Génesis 3. El adjetivo "astuto" también puede tener una connotación negativa en

Lord, keep us faithful to your Word!

Matthew 10:16-23 I wouldn't say that a snake is the first thing I think of when speaking to disciples of Jesus. Snakes tend to have a negative connotation due to God's cursing of the serpent in Genesis 3. The adjective "shrewd" also tends to make us uncomfortable as Christians. I

All are invited, but not all want to come.

Matthew 22:1-14 “The kingdom of heaven is like…” So many stories in the Bible begin with those famous words. We call them parables. Parables are an ancient teaching method that Jesus used to help the people understand what they couldn’t see. You cannot see the kingdom of heaven. It is
