- get some extra pounds but not the growth of our faith
- get updated with the latest news but not understanding God’s plan
- have an extra free meal but not God’s fire in our hearts, neither opened eyes
Jesus was able to use the 3 aliments and disciples were able to see and understand because
1. It was a Deja-vu (Like miraculous fishing, the disciple was custom with Jesus way to work)
Always, God is teaching us His ways before He asks us to walk with Him in those ways.
B open to be taught by God before you want to be used by Him.
2. They were open to get what come from Jesus.

The best miracle we can experience is a transforming mind & life by Jesus.

Faith can make people experience salvation and love can lead s-one to taste resurrection.

But on the first day of the week ... they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. And they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus, but two men in shining clothes stood beside them. (v.1-3 )
The tomb was sealed but not God`s hands (had angels)
Jesus fills the emptiness as He did with the wine, if there is s-one 2 work with Him. (Mary)

To experience God’s incarnated loving Word hanged at Golgotha, people need to believe and to accept God’s words expressed by Pilate on Golgotha’s cross.
Not Golgotha was crated for Christ’ cross, neither the cross was made for Golgotha, but Jesus use them to fulfill God’s will of saving the world and to express His unlimited love

Sermon: Christ’s Gift through God’s Grace Part II
Experiencing God's grace is like having the "ticket bought" and heavenly doors open, already.
Living in God's grace it is a time of "dressing" in Christ's gifts. God's grace in our lives multiplies by
accepting Christ gifts and exploiting them in unity of faith and Spirit to manifest His glory through His body - the Church.
For this reason (manifest His glory) He is calling people from His Body to be "channels" of blessing to
other recipient who were given by Christ to serve the Body to a complete measure in Him for God's glory.
Scripture: Ephesians 4:1-7; 1 Peter 4:10,11
Sermon: Christ’s Gift through God’s Grace
We were created by God to live for His glory.
Through sin and disobedience we’ve lost our divine identity (God’s image) and our
spiritual call (to live for God’s glory).
God`s grace (to be used by God) is given according to the measure of
Christ’ gifts (calls and blessings) which are received (by faith) and it’s manifested
(in total acceptance of God’s will) for the benefits of the
recipients (who fulfill their call supported by Christ gifts) for the glory of God.
In other words: God gave us all the grace to be forgiven, to become His children and
to live for His glory and with the measure we accept God’s grace, with the same
measure we accept Christ’ gifts (calls & blessings) to live for God’s glory.
Scripture: Mark 12:41-44; 2 Corinthians 8:11-15
Sermon: Jesus’ Ways to See Offering
Statement: Offering could be a moment when Jesus can use you as an example to be followed or to be aware of it. In Jesus sight what matters the most is the attitude of givers and the real reason of giving. Jesus sees hidden things and heart’ roots and He is giving His blessings and His rewards accordingly.
“Jesus sat down opposite the treasury, and observed how the people were putting money into the treasury.”
“Calling His disciples to Him, He taught them:…”
In Jesus sight it matter the attitude of givers & the real reason of giving.
1. Jesus sees what is covered by the leaves
Heart giver chooses anonymity.
Heart giver is pointed out by Jesus as hero.
Heart giver praises God that he was able to do something in Jesus’ name
God uses heart givers to perform miracles.
A little from a heart giver is far more in God’s eyes than a lot from a self giver.
2. Jesus sees by the roots what type of fruits will come out
Self giver has inclination to stand against God’s wonders.
Self giver is considered by Jesus an a short term investor
