Lake Chapala Baptist
Pastor Linton’s sermon was a heartwarming one last Sunday. Drawn from Philippians 2:1-4, its title was “The Tenderness of God.”
“Have you experienced Christ’s tenderness and comfort?” he asked us. “How do you express it in your own life? Do you still cling to guilt? Perceived inabilities? Do you still sometimes lash out in your relationships? Do you—like most people—habitually hold a knee-jerk, me-first attitude?
“Selfless humility is the key to unity in the Church. Christ lives in you, beloveds! Draw in His all-encompassing love and consciously reflect it in your lives. God continually encourages us in the comfort of love, under the shelter of His tender wings.”

Pastor Wayne will talk this Sunday about: A fresh new start: Keyword Restoration. Text: Ezra 1:1-4.
All of us expats started anew when we came to Mexico. We may have left behind cars and houses and lifestyles and friends. There were new challenges here: culture, language, dealing with employees, food, church. So we had to adapt to a new way of doing things. And because we had a chance to start all over, we may even have wanted to remake a better image of ourselves.
After 70 years of defeat and captivity in Babylon, the Judeans were returning to their homeland. For those who were born in a foreign land, it was a completely new experience. For those old enough to remember, everything they had known before was gone. The beautiful temple was destroyed, the walls of Jerusalem torn down, and they wanted to learn the lessons that had caused their downfall.
The books of Ezra, Esther, and Nehemiah cover the historical period of Israel’s captivity in Babylon and the period immediately following their return to Jerusalem. Israel’s return to Jerusalem from Babylon involved about fifty thousand Jews.
The book divides very naturally in line with the work of two men: Zerubbabel, the governor and Ezra, the scribe. 1. Zerubbabel, restoring the temple and 2. Ezra, restoring the faith.

Abundant Life Church
Have you responded to the Lord´s command to go and make disciples? Jesus is very clear that he wants to engage every believer in the task of spreading the good news. While there may be some who feel qualified, the majority of people clearly see their weakness. How can we represent Jesus who is God when we are not.? Jesus gave a very straightforward answer. We can’t without being empowered by the Holy Spirit. Come Sunday, June 5, as we celebrate Pentecost Sunday and look to God for the empowering that He has promised.
