Only the Holy Spirit Can Change Your Behavior
It has been said that Jesus's teaching on the Beatitudes is not just hard, it is impossible. However, God sent His Spirit to dwell in us, and with Him, all things are possible. How do we show our love to Christ? By obeying, but more than that, wanting to obey. His Spirit will help us.
Listen as Dámaris teaches on the Sermon on the Mount, God's Spirit, and developing a desire to please the Lord as we let Him change our behavior.

Recently, at a women's conference in Allentown, PA, Dámaris brought out some practical truths from the Bible about our view of the world around us and our view of ourselves.
What's In Your Home?
Speaking about Zacchaeus and the rich young ruler, Dámaris discusses our obedience, generosity and our right reaction to the Lord's call on our life.
What Is Your Name?
The angel asked Jacob, "What is your name?" What truth is revealed when we recognize how God sees us, and how He wants to change who we are?

Diciendo Adios a Mi
En una conferencia de pastores y sus esposas, Dámaris enseñó sobre el versículo Lucas 9:23 que dice, “ Y decía a todos: Si alguno quiere venir en pos de mí, niéguese a sí mismo, tome su cruz cada día, y sígame.”

How is your Faith Meter? and Walking in Obedience
(Click HERE to hear both messages)
Recently, Dámaris spoke upstate NY at a ladies retreat. Her two messages on Saturday were on faith and our obedience to Christ.
We know that without faith, it is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6) So, what does that faith look like? How do we get faith? Where does it come from? In her own, inimitable way, Dámaris explains and teaches about this fundamental truth from the Word of God.
Obedience. The first thought you may have is Obedience School for dogs. Or, you may think of the joy-killer of doing something that you did not want to do when you were a child. Well, think of the other side of the obedience question? Think of how God looks at His often-disobedient children. If you are a parent, especially of little ones, can there be anything more precious than your child gratefully coming when you call him or her to your side? "Yes, Mommy," is one of the sweetest things that a young mother can hear. How sweet must it be to our Lord when His children obey?

The Way, the Truth and the Life
John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:15-20, John 1:14, 14:1-6, 17:17
What does Jesus mean when He said that "I am the way, the truth and the life"? It is okay if you don't fully understand it - even one of His disciples asked him to explain it. Listen as Dámaris challenges us to follow Jesus as He leads us.
What Are You Thirsty For?
All of us are thirsty for something to fulfill our lives. What so many don't understand is that pursuing our own goals, even "good" goals, leaves us wanting. Listen as Dámaris describes the encounter of Jesus and the Woman at the Well in John 4 and how we, too, can "...never thirst again." [This message at our church begins with a short review of our trip to Argentina.]

In Santiago del Estero, Argentina, Dámaris was invited to speak to a gathering of women from various churches. Her message was "What Are You Thirsty For," about the Samaritan woman, the woman at the well in John 4.
It is in Spanish.

JUnTOS Argentina just released a four minute video summary of the weekend that we were privileged to be a part of. I wrote about it in the last blog posting. It would be good to read the last posting for some background. Enjoy the video:
