Putting Jesus First

by stefansuarez on September 2, 2013

I’ve drifted. Since I heard the message of grace, God’s blessings have not stopped pouring into my life. Year after year after year. I was confident that he would never leave me and that he would stay constant even when I am not. You know what? It’s true. He stayed constant. Even when we didn’t [...]

Wait and See

by stefansuarez on March 22, 2012

I am sure what we are suffering now cannot compare with the glory that will be shown to us. (ROMANS 8:18 CEV) We live in a broken world. That is the reason- in plain English- why there is suffering. People like to interpret suffering all the time and draw all sorts of twisted conclusions from [...]

He Completes Me

by stefansuarez on March 8, 2012

2 Colossians: 8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality [...]

Does God Create Evil?

by stefansuarez on March 6, 2012

Got an Email… Last night my wife and I were discussing with someone who said that good and evil comes from God. The thought that God, who is love, can cause evil things to happen. He quoted scriptures like:  Isaiah 45:7- “I form the light and create darkness, I make peace [national well-being] and I [...]

Estranged from Christ

by stefansuarez on March 6, 2012

“I feel so far from God” Is one of the things I hear most often from other Christians. I also hear my own heart saying it too. The good news? It’s just a feeling. The truth is the opposite.

I get this one sometimes: “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” Jn 14:15  – This is proof that the commandments matter! To which I say… “Yes the commandments do matter. I never said they didn’t. But it’s definitely not the way you think…”

The world may change but the truth does not. Facts may change but the truth does not. So-called “reality” can change but the truth does not. Your situation can change, but the truth will not.

Blame Jesus

  Guilt is a killer. If you really think conscience is good, why do you think in the very VERY beginning, our God- this same loving and kind God – said “Do not eat the fruit or you shall surely die!”. Was God saying “Hey if you eat that I will kill you!”? No he [...]

I heard a love song in the past which is about a couple in the act of lovemaking…. there was a line which said something like: “I don’t know where I end and you begin….” That line popped up in my head tonight before going to bed because I was thinking of…. …the Holy Spirit.

By Jourdan Sebastian The first ever temptation of Satan, which caused the fall of all of mankind was a very subtle yet diabolical question. It begs to be studied not only for its impact on man and his subsequent fall but on its enduring legacy which still persists to this day.   “The serpent was [...]

This blog is about Christ. Yes it is about grace, but there is no grace apart from Christ. This blog is not about something he has. It is about something he is. This life is about Christ. Your life is about Christ. And every little detour we make is painful to us because it was [...]

Like Little Children

Hebrews 10:2 2 … For the worshipers, once purified, would have had no more consciousness of sins. That verse is further proof that God has not called us to be “moral”, nor are we supposed to be “immoral” the way the devil would want us to be. We are called to be “a-moral” – no [...]

I have seen two things in this world that proves this world is fallen. First: when people hate their jobs. Second: when people work so hard and get so little.  And I have seen one thing – which is proof that we do not have to live this way…
