Game Over

May 2-8, 2021 – Joseph Castillo Most of you have probably heard of the story of David and Goliath – a famous Bible story where God calls a boy named David to take down a giant who is making fun of David and his people.  Goliath, the giant, was even bold enough to mock God. …

I’ll Huff And I’ll Puff

March 7-13, 2021 – Joseph Castillo This morning my co-worker locked herself out of the office.  She sent me a text, “Let me in, or I’ll huff, and I’ll puff.”  Immediately my mind went to the cartoon that I watched many times as a kid—the cartoon of the “Three Little Pigs” that is based on …

Be My Valentine

February 7-13, 2021 – Joseph Castillo I remember being in school when Valentine’s Day would come around.  Especially when I was in 5th and 6th grade.  Do you remember the little heart-shaped tart candies?  They came in many different colors: red, light green, pink, orange, and yellow.  They had little sayings printed on them.  Some …

Singing In The Rain

January 24-30, 2021 – Joseph Castillo How many of you are enjoying the rain we are having?  I am.  I hear at my work that some “love” this weather and they “love” the rain.  I don’t know if I can say I love the rain but I love how the mountains look after the rain …

An Active God

December 13-19, 2020 – Joseph Castillo Not too long ago I preached a sermon called “The Chase is On”.  I described how when I first saw Belinda, my soon to be girlfriend and later, my wife, running across a football field that I started to run after her.  I had to meet her.  When Adam …

To Be Liked Or Disliked

What’s The Greatest Gift?

October 18-24, 2020 – Joseph Castillo What is the greatest talent or gift that God can give us?  The last two Sabbaths we have gone over the “Parable of the Talents” (Matt 25:14-30).  We have studied the differences between the fruits of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit.  As believers, when we give …

The Chase Is On

September 6-12 – Joseph Castillo I remember vividly when I was 16.  I was going to Dinuba Junior Academy but it only went up to 10th grade.  So my sophomore year I participated in “Academy Day” at Fresno Adventist Academy (FAA).  They had invited all those who were thinking about going to FAA the next …

Frustrated

August 23-29, 2020 – Joseph Castillo Frustration can come in so many different ways.  I’m frustrated with Covid-19.  I’m frustrated that I have to wear a face mask everywhere I go.  I got frustrated when my face mask broke a string in public and I could not wear it anymore.  It kept falling off.  People …

Tired?

August 9-15, 2020 – Joseph Castillo Have you ever been tired?  I have.  There is this story in John that gives me encouragement.  It says, “and Jesus, tired as He was from the journey, sat down by the well (John 4:6).”  The story tells us that Jesus was hungry and tired. Somehow, that brings comfort …
