In today’s podcast we will examine verse six of Psalm 51. This is the fifth week into our study of this profound and practical psalm by King David. The two main themes of this verse center around truth and wisdom. These two themes ties the first portion of the psalm where David confessed his sin with the second part where he speaks about forgiveness. The radical truth in this lesson can be life changing.

“Create In Me” is a Bible teaching series by Glenn Meldrum that comes out of Psalms 51. This powerful, emotionally charged psalm came out of King David’s repentance after his adultery with Bathsheba.

In this final episode of The Audacity Series we will examine 1 Corinthians 13:11. This verse within the love chapter is all about spiritual maturity. When we think like a child we will act and love like a child. If we make the willful choice to spiritually grow up then we will begin thinking like spiritual adults which means we will begin loving like mature adults. Marriages fall apart because people refuse to grow up; churches suffer the ravages of strife because people refuse to grow up.

We have been studying the audacity of faith, hope and love. Last week we began delving into the audacity of love. In this podcast we will examine the divine call for true believers to live out the audacity of love. One of the greatest expressions of love for God is obedience. When we love God we will obey Him. The opposite is also true–if we do not obey His Word it is because we do not really love Him. This teaching will challenge you to love better.
In part 4 of The Audacity Series we will begin examining the audacity of love. This is the bold, daring effort to live out love as defined by God, not mankind, This is love filled with the courage and desire to love God and people regardless of our emotions, senses, circumstances, and intellect.

Dare to listen so that you would dare to believe.

When these three virtues are operating in the life of Christians, God will do great thing through them. This series will challenge your faith and cause you to grow in Christ.
In this last episode of the series on Suffering in this Fallen World, we will study the subject of the Fasted Life. Though this teaching is soundly based upon God’s Word, it is not commonly taught because it is contrary to the American Dream and the pop doctrine prosperity. Nonetheless, both Jesus and Paul clearly taught these truths. Warning, if you listen to this podcast it may change your life!
In part eight of our study on Suffering in this Fallen World we will continue examining the issue of living the crucified life. The crucified life was clearly taught by Jesus and the rest of the New Testament. Actually, it is foundational to living the normal Christian as defined by God’s Word. We must live the crucified life to live holy, be compassionate, to love both friend and enemy or to know the wonders of God’s love. So listen to this teaching and grow in Christ–it is worth it all.
In this seventh part of our study on Suffering in this Fallen World we will take a new direction within the subject by examining the crucified life. The crucified life is central to Christ’s teaching, and as a result, to the New Testament. Unfortunately, it is not a popular subject preached from our pulpits today. Yet it is a necessary part of the Christian faith. This podcast could be revolutionary to your spiritual life.
Part six in this series on Suffering in this Fallen World will focus on the subject of persecution of true Christians. This is a immense subject, both Biblically and historically. Today we will only present an overview on the issue and how it relates to us today in America and the Western world. Persecution is on the rise world wide and it is increasing in America at a fast rate. If Christians are not preparing their hearts and minds for the coming persecution then many will not stand in the day of testing. This podcast will inform you on this extremely important subject.
In part six of this study on Suffering in this Fallen World we will strive to understand two important issues. First, we will examine the right motive and attitude which true believers should have for being willing to suffer. Second, we will investigate the idea of suffering that benefits others. These two ideas are interwoven with each other, and when lived out in the life of a real Christian, will be sure foundations for making men and women of God.
We are now in our fourth week studying the subject of Suffering in this Fallen World. Today we will examine four subjects on the issue of suffering: disciplinary suffering, remedial suffering, suffering that reveals our true inner life and suffering that helps us know Jesus more. The subject of suffering is a difficult one to say the least. But if we will strive to understand the dynamics of suffering as much as we are able we will be better prepared to overcome life’s obstacles when they come our way.
This is part 3 in this teaching series on Suffering in this Fallen World. We will begin by looking at the costliness of our salvation and then move on to understand the dynamics of consequential suffering. It is vitally important that we comprehend as much as is humanly possible why suffering is in this world and how we can walk the victorious Christian life. You will find some practical truths that will help you through your suffering or prepare you for those yet to come.
In part two of this teaching series on Suffering in this Fallen World we begin by looking at the wonderful idea that God is in control even when everything seems out of control. Not just that, God uses our suffering to develop in us a Christlike character. Through our suffering the Lord teaches us how to live more selflessly which includes how to lovingly obey Him. However, before we can live a Christlike life we need a radical change in how we view life and suffering. This means we need a spiritual revolution in our hearts and minds. Listen to this podcast and let God’s spiritual revolution begin in you.
Suffering is a fact of life that we wish would never touch us. But we cannot escape its ever-reaching grasp. Yet in this world that inflicts so much pain and suffering there is a God that offers Himself as the remedy we so desperately need. In this teaching series we will study the mysteries that surround suffering and seek to learn the key to becoming an overcomer in this fallen world. There are answers to the pain you have gone through, are presently experiencing or will come to know. And the One True God offers hope to anyone that will seek to know Him with all of his or her heart.
In part two of this lesson on Biblical inner healing we will briefly examine Psalm 30 and learn how this chapter relates to the subject in question. A practical layman’s approach to true Biblical healing will then be examined. An interesting theme that runs through this two part study is that of worship. God created us to worship and if we worship anything other than God our lives will be negatively affected. With the right worship of God comes deep inner healing. Learn how worship is an integral part of obtaining true Biblical healing for our inward life.
In part one of this teaching on Biblical inner healing we will establish the need for such healing. We will then examine some of the errors on the pop teachings of inner healing and then see how these teachings are purposely absent in the Scriptures. The world does not have an answer to our suffering and need for inner healing. As people get deeper into sin the pain and suffering sin produces is more acutely felt. However, Jesus Christ has the only remedy to our pain and need of inner healing. At the foot of the cross we will find a Savior that is able to heal and transform our lives.
In this final lesson in our series on Holy Fire we will examine a couple of the primary reasons why we need the Holy Spirit’s fire burning in us. We will conclude the podcast by specially examining our God who is a consuming fire. My prayer is that this message will help set your life on fire for Jesus.
