Why A Savior?

Reasons For Being Grateful

Reasons for being grateful Psalm 136 By Ysrael De la Cruz   Gratitude doesn’t come natural to many of us.  This is one of the first things we were taught when we were children, and we then tried to teach our children-to be grateful. “What do you say?” Say thank you.  How often we go…

The Folly of Relativism

  The folly of Relativism Judges 17:6 By Ysrael De la Cruz A worldview is the platform upon which you stand to make sense of the world.  It is your mindset, outlook on life.  Everyone has a worldview.  Relativism teaches that knowledge, truth, and morality exist in relation to culture, society, historical or personal context…

The power of words James 3:1-12 By Ysrael De la Cruz “You have heard the saying sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me” This is not true. Tell this to the kid who is being bullied; many who have committed suicide because how someone’s words made them feel. The…

Being a Kingdom Person

Being a kingdom person Being a kingdom person.  Matt.18:1-4 By: Ysrael De la Cruz We began to talk about the kingdom of heaven.  Jesus inaugurated this kingdom when he came to earth and began preaching “repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matt.4:17) We talked about that the Sovereign reign of Christ is…

Trusting God Against all Odds

You may have heard many sermons or lessons about faith, trusting God. The Bible is full of stories about faith; there are so many characters or individuals with whom we could identify when it comes to trusting in God.  We all may profess to trust God but our actions may not reflect it.  Why is trusting God so hard at times?  It doesn’t come naturally; it requires us to
not be in control at times and most of us don’t like that.  Trusting God goes against our reasoning; it goes against our comfort. Therefore it’s hard. 
Would you trust God even when it doesn’t make sense to you?

Empowered Witnesses

The very day of the resurrection, the disciples of Jesus were afraid to go out in public or even talk about Jesus to someone. They were overpowered by fear and John tells us that the evening of the first day of the week (the evening when Jesus rose from the dead) they were still hiding behind locked doors. They were afraid of the Jews responsible for the death of Jesus. What could possibly change their mood? Their attitude?
