Estad Quietos y Conoced que Yo Soy Dios Por Francis Frangipane

(English)Entre todas las complejas y sublimes facultades del alma humana, un atributo funciona como siervo de todos: el alma del hombre es porosa. Quiere decir que además de los talentos y áreas fuertes, el alma es también formada y desarrollada por estímulos externos: aprendemos costumbres y lenguajes, hábitos, virtudes y vicios  en gran manera importándolos de la realidad que nos rodea. Ciertamente la medula de la vida misma, como la conocemos subjetivamente, es creada por el fluir inter … [Read more...]

Cease Striving and Know That I Am God by Francis Frangipane

Among the many complex and sublime faculties of the human soul, one attribute functions as a servant to all: the nature of the soul is porous. This means that in addition to latent strengths and talents, the soul is also shaped and developed by external stimuli: we learn customs and language, habits, virtues and vices largely by importing reality as it surrounds us. Indeed, the marrow of life itself, as we subjectively know it, is created by the inward flow of these outward realities.Thus, the … [Read more...]

The Immovable Man by James Ryle

“But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” (Act 20:24). Emerson said, “The hero is no braver than the ordinary man; he just fights five minutes longer.” Perseverance in the face of difficulty is a quality that is indispensable in the lives of those who leave a lasting mark on this world.Paul was a man of indefat … [Read more...]

Don’t Downplay the Power of Pentecost by Lee Grady

Pentecost is Sunday, May 23. Here are four reasons we should celebrate the Spirit's outpouring.I've often wondered why we tend to ignore the historic events of Acts 2. We celebrate Christmas for weeks, and we pack as many people as possible into our churches on Easter Sunday. But in our smug evangelical subculture, Pentecost is just an add-on, if it's noticed at all. We can take it or leave it.Many pastors will make no mention of the Holy Spirit this Pentecost Sunday, May 23."Pentecost turned … [Read more...]

His Name, His Love, His Friendship By Terry Somerville

A Most Dangerous Question by David VanCronkhite

Beware when you ask a question of Jesus and He answers with a question. It usually means He wants to change something--most likely, you.Jesus loved to ask questions, especially with the Law guys. The Book tells the story (Luke 10:25) of an expert of one of the most conservative, religious, and legalistic parties of the day who asked Jesus the question of the ages, still debated today, "Tell me, Teacher, how do you get eternal life?" Jesus didn't debate him. Instead He fired right back, … [Read more...]

Bullets or Seeds by Bob Mumford

I’m after mercy, not religion.[1] During Bible college and seminary days we were taught to recite Scripture like cowboys in a fast draw contest: John 3:16; Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:8-9. I made a painful discovery in my journey—wherever the most Scripture was preached was the least amount of Agape! One day while watching the news, a reporter was interviewing a person in line to see the movie The Last Temptation of Christ when a middle-aged woman walked up to him. The camera swung around to ca … [Read more...]

Givers & Takers by Bob Mumford

Do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.[1]The most basic philosophy of all of life is the concept of givers & takers. Most people fall into one of two categories: we are either givers looking out for the interests of others as exemplified by our Lord Jesus or takers who only seek their own interests.[2] These two effectively transcend all other categories of religion, race, caste systems, ethnicity, social standing, and education. Father … [Read more...]
