    Giving and receiving

    Aug 6, 2022 • 00:02:22

    The interesting matter here is how Paul draws attention to the question: who has been blessed by this gesture? Himself, obviously, because he has seen his needs supplied, but those who are even more blessed are those who have given, because this...

    Learn to be Content

    Paul, in prison and financial want, receives help from the church in Philippi, and he rejoices for this, but he also takes the opportunity to remind them (and us) that the circumstances are precisely that: circumstances. If our lives depend on the...

    Be anxious for nothing

    What is the source of our joy, of our view of life? Where do we place our confidence and hope? Paul encourages us here to leave all our worries, our fears, our struggles with the One who has already won, in Jesus, the Lamb of God.

  • Seek Harmony

    Seek Harmony

    Jul 28, 2022 • 00:02:52

    One of the most evident examples of spiritual maturity is how we handle our relationships, especially the conflicts. The Christian can go before his brother in Christ and recognize his own faults, ask for forgiveness, and be sincere about what he...

  • Imitate me

    Imitate me

    Jul 14, 2022 • 00:02:23

    When Paul says, “look to me and imitate those who live as I do,” he is teaching us to look to Jesus… Our citizenship is from heaven, our mind is heavenly (conformed to God’s Word). We don’t live like those who trust in their own righteousness, like...

  • Absolute dependence on God

    Absolute dependence on God

    Jul 12, 2022 • 00:03:19

    One of the greatest dangers of the Christian faith is falling into “legalism.” It is very simple to think that Christianity is only a series of rules for how to live; a classification of what pleases God and what does not.

  • Work out your salvation

    Work out your salvation

    Jul 9, 2022 • 00:02:50

    How can we be lights? By working out our salvation (understanding here the process of sanctification that God is doing in us) with the greatest seriousness and commitment (fear and trembling)

  • Humble like Jesus

    Humble like Jesus

    Jul 7, 2022 • 00:02:18

    Speaking of putting others above ourselves, Paul offers us one of the most beautiful descriptions of who Jesus is and what He did. The One who created everything became a servant, a slave to be more exact. He came to serve us, and He left us an...

    Learning to love each person, remembering how much God has forgiven us, and the mercy He has poured out over our lives.

    Sadness, Surprise, Joy

    When they reach the tomb, the stone that covered the entrance had been moved, and the body of the Lord was not there. What happened?

  • He is Risen! We Have Seen Him!

    He is Risen! We Have Seen Him!

    May 26, 2022 • 00:05:07

    First of all, it is God who opens the eyes of the disciples so that they can see and understand the wonder of what is before their eyes. Jesus opened their eyes to the Scriptures. He showed them how He is revealed through the Bible. And then, He...

    The surprise continues, but fear becomes joy. It really is Him. He even eats with them. This encounter with Jesus leaves such a profound mark on those who are there that it will lead them to serve the Risen One until the day of their own death.

  • The Story is NOT Over

    The Story is NOT Over

    May 31, 2022 • 00:03:02

    The disciples are full of joy. The part of God’s plan to fill the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been made known. How could we not be happy? How could we not praise God for this?

  • Love in the Midst of Despair

    Love in the Midst of Despair

    May 21, 2022 • 00:02:44

    Jesus has been killed. Unjustly accused. Who would want to identify with him? Who would want to stay at His side? It is a dangerous moment and one of great uncertainty.

  • The Most Amazing Moment

    The Most Amazing Moment

    May 19, 2022 • 00:02:54

    Jesus dies. And Luke shows us a dramatic, tense scene. The significance and greatness of this moment cannot be described with human words. The cross is God Himself giving His Son as a sacrifice for us. Meditate on this. It's amazing! We are speechless...

    The other wrongdoer rebukes him. “What are you saying? Are you not afraid of God? We are guilty, but he is innocent.” He somehow recognizes his evil and that he is next to the One who does not deserve to die. On that cross, a few minutes from his...

  • Forgive Them

    Forgive Them

    May 14, 2022 • 00:02:36

    Jesus has given us a wonderful example of forgiveness and love. Let us imitate Him. But above all, don’t forget to be surprised by the depth of Christ’s love for us. While He was rejected and mocked, He prayed… “Forgive them, for they do not know what...

  • The Walk to the Cross

    The Walk to the Cross

    May 12, 2022 • 00:03:15

    Jesus is led to the cross, to death. The Jewish leaders have fulfilled their goal. But as I read this passage I am amazed to see how Jesus affects the lives of those who share, in some way, his journey to the cross.

  • Those Who Reject Jesus

    Those Who Reject Jesus

    May 10, 2022 • 00:04:06

    The two rulers who appear on the scene do not want to be responsible for the death of Jesus (his innocence and authority are evident). The truth, however, is that no one can remain indifferent to Jesus.
