  • A sermon on Luke 24:35-48

    A man went to his pastor for spiritual advice. He complained that he was bombarded with many temptations that led him to sin. He described his soul as "filled with cobwebs all around me. They are my temptations. I get stuck on them. They trap me." Frustrated, he asked the pastor, "How can I clear my soul of these pesky cobwebs?" The pastor looked at him with compassion and wisely said, "Kill the spider."

    Easter is a love letter from Jesus written in the ink of His Blood. Use your life to write a love letter back to Him. I believe in God who helps us all. Happy Easter.
  • A sermon on John 11:35
    Jesus cried because He is compassionate. He cares for the sufferings of others. Jesus became human so He can understand the sufferings of His people. Jesus didn't know suffering in Heaven. He surely knows it now on earth.
  • A sermon on John 9:1-41
    Complacency is spiritual poison that makes you blind. What is complacency and how does it hurt you? It is defined as "a feeling of being satisfied with yourself so that you do not think any change is necessary."
  • A sermon on John 2: 13-25

  • A sermon on the Transfiguration
    If you look at the things happening in your life only from the outside world, you won't get a clear picture. Your understanding will be incomplete or even blurred. This lack of clear vision could cause you to doubt God's love and care.

    Many are giving credit to Travis Kelce for the Kansas City Chiefs winning Super Bowl 58. Not only because of his great performance on the field, but for what he did before the game ever started. 
  • A sermon on Mark 1:40-45
    Who would have thought that God would use the Three Stooges to touch a sad little boy with happiness? I believe when God heals, He restores the entire person, not just the body. He heals their soul, mind and heart as well. 
  • A sermon on Mark 1:29-39
    Don't be afraid to approach God even though you have failed Him many times. God wants your faith, not your successes.

    Mark's story of Jesus healing a man with the evil spirit I call J-Day. It is a report of the very first battle of Jesus fighting Satan for the liberation of the human people.

    Temperance is where you choose not to do something that would be sinful. Temperance requires a lot of practice. Satan makes sin so pleasurable. That's why so many people do it.

    This wise man taught me that even when our sky is at its darkest, there is a star called faith that leads us to the Christ. Keep the faith.

    Christmas is not only the celebration of God's Love for all humans, but a command to humans to love all humans like He did.
