Living in the Center of God's Will

Acts 27:1-42; Acts 28:1-10,  Bro. Daniel Abalos, GCF Durham Introduction: This is about Paul's journey from Caesarea to Rome. He was sent to prison in Jerusalem for preaching the gospel, being accused by the Jewish religious leaders of a crime he did not commit. Being a Roman citizen, he appealed to Caesar in Rome to defend himself of the charges being laid. Eventually, he boarded the ship together with other prisoners to Rome. However, the ship got caught in the middle of the storm towards their destination, turns out they shipwrecked but landed safely in a small island called Malta. After staying in the island for a while, Paul eventually arrived in Rome as promised by God. 1. Reason - (Ac

The greatest enemy of God isn't Satan.

"Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful." Mark 4:18-19 NIV. Many Christians believed that God's greatest adversary is the Devil. Books have been written, and arts have been crafted to depict this battle between God and Satan. The book of Revelation gave a futuristic picture of what this war would be like in the future, God versus evil, and God's holy angels against the power of darkness. Satan's days are numbered and he is bound to be punished forever. But sadly, God's greatest enemy isn't Satan and his evil cohorts but God's very own

God’s Patience Has a Limit!

The Parable of the Fig Tree Luke 13:1-9, Luis Cruz, GCF Durham God’s grace has been abused by so many Christians. Some thought that because God has forgiven all their sins, there is no need to repent and confess their sins anymore. Repentance and confession are still required from us because God’s patience has a limit. He can discipline His children according to Hebrews 12:4-12. God disciplines us to teach us to give a high value for His word and become the kind of people that He wants us to be. On the other end of the spectrum, are the unbelievers. God displayed great patience to all people, including those who are outside the faith. But God’s patience is not unlimited! The author of Hebrew

Getting Ready for the Lord’s Return

Part 6 Parable series, The Faithful Servant Luke 12:22-26, 35-48 Getting saved from the penalties of our sins is just the first step in one’s Christian journey. Much work is still needed. The first step is purely God’s divine work but the second step, getting ready for Christ’s return, is a partnership work between the Holy Spirit and the Christian. It is his/her responsibility to live as if Jesus is returning anytime soon. The Holy Spirit counsels us through the Word but He requires us to act. What are some of the biblical things we need to do to get ready for Christ’s eventual return? 1. Start focusing on the King and His work. “Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you

The Folly of Pursuing Worldliness

Part 5 Parable series, The Rich Fool, Luke 12:13-21 GCF Durham, Luis Cruz The pleasures offered by this world can be overwhelming. Christians are always tempted to follow the world instead of the Word. The world has its way of influencing our priorities. And if we are not deep into the Word, the world will dictate our activities. Some immigrant Christians found their spiritual life negatively affected by earthly treasure and pleasures and became like the rest of the world. One of my Christian friends said, “Canada (a wealthy country) has changed a lot of immigrant Christians – from being dedicated to the Lord to being dedicated to the world. You can’t tell the difference anymore. They have g
