After Easter

Posted onApril 4, 2018 | by: John Guerra | 0 comments

Peter and John were in serious trouble for healing a lame man in the name of Jesus and then preaching in the temple. The man wanted money, but they saw God working and what he really needed, Jesus. What else could they have done? ...Keep Reading

That's Something To Remember

Don’t you hate forgetting someone’s name or number or birthday. Today, Jo Beth, our baby, turns 22. For some reason, I wished her happy birthday at 1:00 am Tuesday morning. After a late meeting, I was up late and thought, “I want to be the first one to wish Jo Beth happy birthday!” Well, I think I accomplished that, a day early!...Keep Reading

Necessary Adjustments

Posted onMarch 26, 2018 | by: John Guerra | 0 comments

We’re building something eternal in this life and it requires regular adjustments where we sacrifice selfishness to choose obedience. It begins when we repent from our sin and choose to follow Jesus. But it doesn’t end there, everyday we must choose to be obedient. Everyday we will be tempted to be selfish at home, at work, and at church. If we don’t make an adjustment and obey the Lord, we’ll slip back into selfishness and sin....Keep Reading

Do You Hear That?

. When we hear the birds singing and see the sun rising in the east, we are reminded of our Savior that rose from the dead after defeating sin, death and the grave. When we hear children playing outdoors, we’re reminded of the unconditional love our Father has for us....Keep Reading

God Hears and Sees

“I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears.” If you get anything from this, remember the “Lord sees your tears,” He knows what is breaking your heart: seeing your marriage fall apart, seeing your child’s family break up, hearing your mate is sick, seeing your child suffer and unable to do anything! He sees our tears, but even better, He hears our prayers....Keep Reading

But He reaches back to the Shema, Deuteronomy 6:5 where He sums of all the Commandments and all the laws. He’s saying, “If you want to obey all the law; if you are concerned about being right with God, just love Him with all your passion and feelings, love Him with your will and love him with all your thoughts....Keep Reading

God's Way Or The...

The first principle of Experiencing God is: “God is always at work around you.” One of the ways He works is in our hearts to desire and to do His good works. Blackaby says something real interesting about what happens after we see God work: “We immediately become self-centered rather than God-centered.” He describes how this is an invitation for us “to adjust our lives to God.”...Keep Reading

Too Much Love?

Posted onJanuary 31, 2018 | by: John Guerra | 0 comments

We are told to love each other with a genuine love. This kind of love, real love, does not have a limit. We don’t say, “Well, that’s enough love. I’ve reached my quota. You’re good for the week.” Just like you don’t keep a record of wrongs with real love, you don’t keep a tally of how much I’ve shown love....Keep Reading

Anyone Can

It seems like too many church-goers today are satisfied with just that, going to church. Church attendance is not the extent of our purpose. Our purpose in this life is to know God and the Lord gives us direction here. “Let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow Jesus.” To deny self does not mean to deny things. It means to give yourself wholly to Christ and share in His shame and death. ...Keep Reading
