Our Response of Worship

““All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. “Take My yoke upon you and …

He Is Our Worship

“For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same way He took the cup …

Worship Is A Relationship

““You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit …

Prayer is a Relationship

We all know that we are supposed to pray, but a lot of times we may get confused on how to think about prayers. Why do sometimes our prayer work and sometimes they don’t? I think that we must remember that prayer is an expression of our relationship with the Father and Jesus through the Holy Spirit. God already knows …

The Old Wine is Better! Luke 5:33-39

“And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, ‘The old is better” (Luke 5:39, NIV84).  A lot of times this passage is taught out of its context. Once you are able to read this passage in the context of what Jesus was saying it takes a new meaning. I have heard so many times that …

Love One Another

“For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little” (Luke 7:47). Our ability to love is related to our receiving forgiveness. In Luke 7:36-50 we find another very important account of Jesus interacting with religious people and sinners. Once again, we see …

He Loves You the Way You Are

A lot of times we are conditioned to think that God is waiting for us to change and solve all of our problems so that He can finally love and accept us. This is not the way that God thinks, and His Son came to change the way we think about His Father. In Luke chapter 8 we read about …

First Born Among Many – Hebrews 2:11

In Genesis 11 we read about the Tower of Babel and the human attempt to reach to heaven and to make a name for themselves (Genesis 11:3-4). This is when God came and confused their language. From before the foundation of the world God already had a perfect plan, the only way for us to get back in a relationship …

Connect to the Source

Jesus was teaching something very important to His disciples, apart from Him we cannot do anything, and to be able to bear fruit it will always depend on us being connected to the Vine.“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you …

Give Me Eyes to See, and Ears to Hear

I have been thinking a lot about the parable of “the blind men and the elephant.” Each of them was able to touch a different part of the elephant and each had a partial perspective. This parable does not have a clear ending, but it opens the door for each one of us to think about it and make our …

Pruned to Produce More Fruit

Sometimes we may go through times of trials and challenges, and we think it is all negative and the end of everything. In reality, challenging times are what make us grow and mature. Impasses can be used as steppingstones for us to rise to a higher level. It seems like the whole world is going through a big transition, and …

He Gave Gifts to Everyone

In our bodies every member has a function, every member is important, every member must function along with the whole Body. When one organ is not functioning properly the whole body suffers. Not only that, not one member or cell can continue to live without its connection, receiving from and giving, to the whole body. In 1 Corinthians 12 Paul …

This Battle Is Not Yours

This message was more like a cry and intercession. We are living days that are overwhelming and confusing, but at the same time amazing things are happening. We must keep our eyes upon the Lord and remember that He is looking for worshipers, those that will put their trust in Him only. For whatever was written in earlier times was …

God Does Not Want Your Religion

A lot of times it is easy to think that God wants us to perform some rituals, attend a service, and do things for Him. If we study the Scriptures, we see the tendency that we have to separate our religious lives from the way that we actually live our lives and relate to others. In this message I read …

Become What God Is Looking For

Sometimes we can make things more complicated and difficult than they really are. We may think that to find God we have to become something special, to better ourselves and try to impress God with what we can do, with the things we accomplish in ourselves, because of our zeal in seeking God. In reality it is easier to think …

“It Is Written” and “You Have Heard”

The title of this blog may sound strange, and I hope it caught your attention. The main point that I want you to think about is that there is a big difference between what is actually written in the Scriptures and what you have heard. This is nothing new, it is actually one of the main arguments between Jesus and …

The Importance of Knowing the Scriptures

We have been having classes about the Hebrew Roots of the New Testament and it is always good to remember that the New Testament did not exist until much later in the history of the church. When we read the New Testament, it should be clear that almost every mention of the Scriptures is actually referring to the Old Testament. …

This Is Not the End!

I have been thinking a lot about the recent changes and challenges we have been living under, and I realized that this is not the first time that mankind and this planet is going through a difficult time. We sometimes tend to focus on a limited amount of time, days, weeks, and maybe months, and then we forget that for …

You Are God’s Creation

Have you ever had the thinking: “If that person can’t relate to me the way I am, it is their problem!” That is not the way that God thinks, He found a way to become like we are so that we could relate to Him. He sought us out even before we could relate to Him. “And even if our …

We Are Temples of the Holy Spirit

“Thus says the LORD, “Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest? “For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being,” declares the LORD. “But to this one I will look, To him who …

Choose To Be A New Creature

“So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36). Sometimes you declare your independence before you have it. You cry for freedom because you don’t heave it. But the day comes where you decide to walk away from the old ways of thinking and from the way that people know your or think about you. …

The Messiah in the Old Testament

What we know today as the Old Testament was in reality the only Scriptures that were available at the time when Jesus was teaching His disciples. The Scriptures were not referred to as the Old Testament because the New Testament did not exist. Every reference to the Scriptures that we read about in the New Testament is actually talking about …
