Contend for the Supernatural: We Are Connected

Out of the Abundance of the Heart

Let’s pray, Friend! I don’t like unspoken prayer requests. That’s odd, I know, but I find it hard to pray for something if I don’t know what it is. Prayer is based on faith. To pray in faith, to be in agreement, I need…

Contend for the Supernatural: Everybody Plays

You are Christ’s body–that’s who you are! You must never forget this. Only as you accept your part of that body does your “part” mean anything.  (1 Corinthians 12:27 MSG) As many times as we have heard it, it’s still true: Every believer has…

De la Abundancia del Corazon

En Espíritu y en verdad, Amigo. Años atrás, en los 1980’s cuando por primera vez asistía a una Iglesia carismática, me sorprendió el estilo que tenían para adorar, más que eso, note una intensidad y una participación a la que no estaba acostumbrado. Eso…

Out of the Abundance of the Heart

Building People of Substance for Works of Power OK, Friend, let’s do this! Many years ago, in my desperation to stop drinking, I stumbled into a 12 Step meeting. At the end of the discussion, we all stood, held hands, and recited the Lord’s…

Contend for the Supernatural: It’s an “us” thing.

But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His…

Out of the Abundance of the Heart

Contend for the Supernatural: Granola Cometh

Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.  (1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 NKJV) One of the reasons that even Pentecostal people eventually back away from the things of the Spirit…

Contend for the Supernatural: Don’t Get Sidetracked

Sunday Blessing: Let Us Pray!

Contend for the Supernatural: Give ’em a Demo!

And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever He chose. (Hebrews 2:4 NLT) The Gospel we are commanded to proclaim is a very remarkable story.  In fact, it sounds more like a…

De la Abundancia del Corazon

No nos conformemos, Amigos. El último párrafo del capítulo de Hechos 1 dice: “fueron llamados a ser Apóstoles. Matías fue escogido y se unió a los 11 Apóstoles. (GW)” los siguientes versos (Hechos 2:1-4) representar la venida del Espíritu Santo para capacitar a la…
