The cost of following Jesus – Mark 9:31-38

We want to answer the following questions: What does it mean to follow Jesus or be his disciple? What is the cost of following Jesus? What does it involve? Does God want to be willing to die for him or is this passage figurative? The cost of being his disciple involves three key actions from […]

Cuatro Niveles de Discípulos

La Biblia usa la palabra “discípulo” para referirse a un seguidor de Jesús. En el Nuevo Testamento (los Evangelios y en el libro de Hechos) encontramos que la palabra “discípulo” se encuentra 26 veces y “discípulos” 233 veces. Jesús tuvo a muchos seguidores, pero no todos eran discípulos. Algunos discípulos no eran verdaderos discípulos. Hay […]

Who has Your Heart?

There have only three times that I have moved. The first time happened when I was ten years old. We left El Salvador to come to America. I remember our departure. The feelings are somewhat nostalgic. This move opened a new life for me and my family. The best of it was the fact that […]

Betraying Jesus

I was reading Luke 22 this morning and verse 2 caught my attention: “Then Satan entered Judas.” This happens again here. Here is the context.

Life For A Life, Yet Not Equal Trade

I was thinking how often we say “my life,” and found that it is pervasive. I found it very difficult to say life without using “my.” I tried saying “the life” but it sounded weird. In the United States we believe in the “American Dream,” whatever it means depends on the individual. But it is […]

I read an article titled The Coming Evangelical Collapse and found similar thoughts I that I myself have been thinking for a while.
