We had such a wonderful time Thursday night with pastor Daniel Nuñez and his church, Lo Mejor del Trigo. I preached in Spanish for the first time in a while.
I felt a little anxious going into the night, since it’s been a while since I’ve preached in Spanish, but the Lord blessed. It reminds me of how God works through our weaknesses.
I enjoyed the opportunity to share the Word of God from Romans 8. My sermon was titled, “Nada, quiere decir Nada,” (Nothing means nothing). Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ. What a great promise. Why do we worry? Why do we fret? Our loving Father holds us in the palm of his hand and he will never let us go.
Romans 8:37-39 (ESV),
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the Love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Paul repeats over and over again that there is nothing created that can separate us from the love of Christ. If we are in Christ we are not condemned, and it’s impossible for anything to separate us from Christ’s love.
It was so good to worship together with our brothers and sisters from Tijuana.
Then after the service we enjoyed fellowship over some delicious tacos!
