New Sermon Series

On Jan 27, 2019, I will begin to preach a 2 year journey through the book of Acts. This will be my longest book study to date. I am super excited about what the Lord will do through this journey. Acts is an amazing account of the early church and its foundations.

What we can glean is yet to be determined. As we have embarked upon a second worship service at City Church Del Rio, this Sermon Series is going to propel us into our next phase as a church. Moving past our smallness and into bigger things God has for us, including filling up 2 worship services. CCDR will look extremely different in 2019. New faces, new people coming to know Jesus as their own Lord, more baptisms, and much more.

Will you begin to pray for City Church Del Rio to make a big impact on the community? It really isn’t about our church, but it is about Jesus!

The Greatest Sermon Ever Preached

Sermon-on-the-Mount-Wide-S2F-01-3.jpg

When you remember great sermons that have been preached by pastors current and from the past, they pail in comparison to the Master of great sermons. Jesus’ few words are so packed with amazing truths. We are allowed to preach by gathering inside information via the Holy Spirit, commentaries, and theological professors. Jesus preaching was from within.

That leaves me to formulate a thought here. Shouldn’t we as spiritual leaders also be preaching from within as we draw day by day closer and closer to Jesus? Our sermons should by all means be more heart felt as we preach time and time again. I pray that I can be a Jesus preacher as well.

I am beginning a new series based on the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5-7. Here is the  schedule. Raising The Standard!

April 23—Blessed Are You! Matthew 5:1-12

April 30—The Salty Life, Matthew 5:13-16

May 7—The Law of Grace, Matthew 5:14-20

May 14—Mother’s Day

May 21—Heart Check-part 1, Matthew 5:21-26

May 28—Heart Check-part 2, Matthew 5:27-32

June 4—I Cross My Heart, Matthew 5:33-42

June 11—Love My People, Matthew 5:43-48

June 18—Father’s Day

June 25—Generous Giving, Matthew 6:1-4

July 2—Praying for the Kingdom, Matthew 6:5-15

July 9—Do I Have to Fast? Matthew 6:16-19

July 16—The Treasure of Your Mind, Matthew 6:19-24

July 23—Kingdom Matters, Matthew 6:25-34

July 30—Who’s Your Judge? Matthew 7:1-6

Aug 6—Go Ahead and Ask, Matthew 7:7-12

Aug 13—Danger: One Lane Bridge Ahead, Matthew 7:13-14

Aug 20—The Sad Reality, Matthew 7:15-23

Aug 27—Built on the Solid Rock, Matthew 7:24-29

Assurance Sermon Series

letters-of-john-assurance

Today, as I write this post, I am reminded of the great gift God has bestowed upon us-assurance. We are allowed to live out our life in assurance. We can know who Jesus is and who we are in Him. This aspect of the Christian walk can transform our being. We no longer have to be intimated by a society that believes we are the ones who have lost our way.

The letters of 1, 2, and 3 John are what I like to call the black and white, cut and dry, and zero gray areas of Christianity. There is this a theme throughout that says it either this or that with no in between.

Light or dark, good or evil, love God or don’t love God, heaven or hell, Jesus or Satan, righteousness or sin, life or death, eternal or temporary, and truth of false.

This will be an 8-week series leading up to Easter Sunday. I look forward to our time together as we journey through another book of God’s amazing Word of Life.

I plan on posting some notes each week for each of the 8 sermons here on this blog.

In the meantime, stay in the light, 1 John 1:7,
