“Strengthened By Grace”

Welcome to our little corner of the internet. My name is Abraham Moreno, I am the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel McAllen Metro and teacher of the radio program Strengthened By Grace. 
Nothing gives me greater joy than to teach God’s word and encourage others to have a deeper walk with Jesus. I grew up in a christian home. My parents have been living role models in my life. They love the Lord whole-heartedly, which from an early age led me to desire to have that kind of beautiful relationship with Jesus.  
So I tried, and I tried, then I tried some more. And I quickly found out that all my efforts to get close to Him were driven out of fear and not out of Love for Him. They were driven through my own ability, rather than being based on what Jesus had already done for me on the cross of Calvary.
Once I gained a deeper understanding of God’s redeeming Grace, my fears were gone, my doubts were gone, my efforts to serve Him stopped being requirements for salvation and my service to God became, joy filled and love driven. It was truly like the writer of Hebrews said in Hebrews 13:9 “Your strength comes from God’s grace, not from rules…”   
My desire since then, has been to serve Jesus by teaching His word, chapter by chapter, verse by verse and teaching others, not to depend in their ability to keep their relationship with God through rules and regulations, rather to learn to put their trust in Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who is able to save anyone who calls on His name. 
I would truly love to hear from you. Please reach out to me by emailing me at sbg@calvarychapelmcallen.org .  Share with us your story of Grace.
