James 3:1 Part 14

James 3:1 is all about the importance of living in light of the fact that we will all be judged by God and that those who teach or preach God’s Word will be judged more stictly.

Christmas 2018

This Christmas message for 2018 is about how Jesus came into the world at just the right time and at just the right time He came to us. Salvation doesn’t come to us by time and chance, but through a God who is actively working in our lives. This message will encourage you.

James 2:11-13 Part 11

Though in today’s lesson we are still studying the subject of favoritism, it moves into the subject of showing mercy. James told us that “Mercy triumphs over judgement” and we will dig into this beautiful truth and see its wonder benefits in those who are true followers of Jesus.

James 2:5-10 Part 10

James 2:5-10 continues James’ teaching on the subject of favoritism. The reason why James wrote on this subject was to bring us to verse eight where he introduces the Royal Law, which is to love others as we want to be loved. So all he has to write on favoritism is really to teach us how love better. This teaching could really benefit your life.

James 2:1-4 Part 9

James 2:1-4 are the verses we will study in this lesson. The subject is on favoritism and we will see some of the ways this is played out in the church today. The principle reason why we are not to show favoritism is because we are called to be Christlike and Jesus never showed favoritism. This podcast has some very challenging thoughts so grab your Bible and a cup of coffee and give a listen.

James 1:16-19 Part 5

James 1:16-19 are the verses we will dig into in this lesson. James presents some powerful truths that are extremely helpful in our day and age.

Then James will begin discussing the topic of good communication and this will be very challenging.

This is an interesting and challenging lesson so don’t miss it.

James 1:1-4 Part 1

Our new study is on the Epistle of James. The first half of the lesson is an introduction to the book, while the second half digs into the first four verses. James immediately begins his letter in the fiery manner that is keeping with his writing style. He is a very practical preacher and the first thing he does is to declare the divinity of Christ. He then goes on to encourage us to have joy in the midst of our trials.

The Gospel of John Part 75 – Jn. 21:15-25

John 21:15-25 are the verses we will examine in this final episode in our study on the Gospel of John. We will learn why Peter denied the Lord and what it means to love Him. The loving heart of God is revealed in these verses through the act of reconciling Peter to Himself. This is a moving portion of the Gospel that is a powerful way to end this eyewitness account of the life of Christ.

The Gospel of John Part 74 – Jn. 21:1-14

Verses 1-14 of the 21st chapter of John is the portion of Scripture we will study in this podcast. What we see here is John’s final account of Jesus appearing to some of the apostles before He ascends to the Father. This is a wonderful portion of the Word that deals with some interesting truths. We also see here the Lord’s desire for the disciples to fellowship with Him, which is the greatest privilege given to mankind.

The Gospel of John Part 72 – Jn. 20:19-23

The focus of John 20:19-23 is on the resurrected Savior revealing Himself to the disciples. We will see how Jesus greeted them and a small portion of what He taught. These were extremely important times Jesus had with the disciples because He was pouring into them truth that would be essential for them to have after He ascended into heaven. We will also look at what Jesus breathing on the disciples was all about and touch on the authority Jesus gave His followers. This is an exciting message.

This lesson on Jn. 20:1-18 are the beginning verses on Christ’s resurrection from the dead. The first disciples Jesus showed Himself to were women and we will look at the reasons for this and what this means for us today. We will also see the basic timeline of the events concerning His resurrection. This is an encouraging and convicting message that you don’t want to miss.

The Gospel of John Part 70 – 7 last sayings of Jesus Pt. 2

In today’s lesson we will accomplish two things. First, we will finish studying the seven last sayings of Jesus from the cross and will mainly focus upon the seventh which is, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” Second, we will finish studying John chapter 19:31-42. In these verses we will see Jesus pierced with a Roman spear to prove He was dead and to fulfill prophecy. Then we will see two members of the Sanhedrin Council that condemned Jesus actually burying of Him in a very respectful manner.

The Gospel of John Part 69 – 7 Last saying of Jesus Pt. 1

In our study of the Gospel of John we are in chapter 19, In our last lesson we looked at three of the last seven sayings Jesus spoke from the cross. I decided it would be good to study these seven last sayings so that is what we will do. Today we will examine the first four and I recommend that you don’t miss this lesson because this is a very powerful.

The Gospel of John Part 68 – Jn. 19:26-30

In John 19:26-30 we will look at a portion of Christ’s crucifixion. There are three points that we will examine–our Lord’s interaction with His mother, His cry “I thirst” and his declaration, “It is finished.” This is a powerful portion of Scripture that we need to clearly understand.

The Gospel of John Part 67 – Jn. 19:10-25

John 19:10-25 focus upon the final events of Jesus trial before Pilate and His being crucified. In John’s account of Christ’s crucifixion he isn’t trying to repeat everything the other Gospels teach, but is supplementing the account so that putting them all together we have a full picture of what happened. The truths we learn in this portion of Scripture are a necessary part of what true followers of Jesus must know.
