We will go with Jesus to the Garden of Gethsemane, hear Him pray and examine some of the profound lessons that are in this account. Then we will see the Savior arrested and Peter’s denial. Here we will find some more profound lessons that will teach us how to live the victorious Christian life in the face of suffering and trials.
Fighting the Good Fight
As we begin studying Luke chapter 21 we will take a close look at a widow whom Jesus praised. This is followed by the Lord prophesying the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. Then we will start examining Christ’s teaching on His second coming. There is some good stuff to dig into in this lesson.
In Luke 12:31 Jesus gave us the command to seek His kingdom. In the verses we are studying in this lesson, Jesus elaborated on what it means to seek Him and His kingdom above everything and everyone. What He taught is foundational to living out the Biblical faith, so it is of great importance that we know these truths.
We are going to study the teaching Jesus gave after casting out a demon and the confront this caused with the religious Jews. The topics of demon possession, Mary the earthly mother of Jesus and walking in the light are some of the subjects that will come up. This is a good lesson from Luke chapter eleven.
As Jesus was passing through Samaria He was rejected by a village. James and John were so angry they wanted Jesus to call down fire on them and consume the entire village. This is an interesting account that exposes the anger and prejudice that can be us and that we must get victory over it. This account leads into the next event where Jesus had a brief conversation with three men. We will only begin looking at this account. There is some good stuff in this study.
We are still in the midst of the Christmas story in this lesson. The birth of John is the primary focus in this study. John is the cousin of Jesus who would one day be the prophet who prepares the way for Messiah. There’s a lot of truth presented on the Christmas story that many aren’t familiar with, so listen and learn. Merry Christmas!!!
In this lesson we will study the first two of three temptations Jesus went through according to the Gospel of Luke. Since Jesus was tempted in every way as we are, yet was without sin, He is able to help us in our time of need. There are some very practical truths about living the victorious Christian life in the this lesson.
We will concentrate in this lesson on First John 2:16. This verse gives one of the clearest definitions of how temptation works. We will learn about the three categories of temptation that is common to every person. We will also learn some of the ways to overcome temptation. This is a practical lesson for anyone that wants to be a disciple of Jesus.
Ephesians 6:14 is the verse we will focus on in this lesson that is part of Paul’s teaching on the armor of God. There are three points in this verse: that Christians are to stand, and that we are to wear the belt of truth and the breastplate of righteousness. You will be encouraged by this teaching.
Two verses are the focus of our continuing study of Paul’s Epistle to the Ephesians. We will look at verses 10-11 of chapter six that begins Paul’s discourse on spiritual warfare. This is an encouraging, yet challenging lesson so don’t miss it. You can subscribe for free to this weekly podcast through iTunes, Google Play Music, Spotify, Blubrry, Tunein or Stitcher.
This is part 42 in our continuing study on Paul’s epistle to the Ephesians. In this lesson we are looking at chapter five, verses 13-17. The main topics that will be addressed is how God is like light that exposes the hidden things in our heart and mind, and that we must be careful in how we live so that we can make the most of every opportunity. Finally, we must know God’s will. This teaching will challenge and encourage you.
In this lesson from Ephesians 5:5-7 Paul will give a short list of sins that are sure to send people to hell. He goes on to warn us to be careful so that we aren’t deceived through the empty words of people that will lead us away from Christ. This is a very practical lesson for the days in which we live.
Verses nine through eleven of the forth chapter of Ephesians are three very challenging verses. They focus upon two subjects. First, what did Paul mean that Jesus descended and then ascended. Second, what is the fivefold ministry? If you haven’t subscribed to this weekly podcast then you can do it for free through iTunes, Google Play Music, Blubrry, Spotify, Stitcher and Tunein.

Ephesians 4:4-8 are the verses we will concentrate on in this lesson. In verses 4-6 Paul states that there is only one body, one Spirit, one hope, one Lord and one faith. We will learn what Paul meant by these “one” statements. Then in verses 7-8 we will study the grace that is given to Christ’s disciples and what Paul is talking about when he speaks of Christ descending and ascending. This is a very interesting lesson.
In the first five verses of Ephesians chapter three Paul writes on his call to be an apostle to the Gentile world, or non-Jewish world. This is actually very radical. A Jew bent on persecuting Christians gets radically saved and the Lord sends him to reach a pagan world. This lesson is soul-stirring.
In this lesson we will study the first four verses of Ephesians chapter two. The powerful truths that this portion of Scripture presents is life changing when applied to life. The topics will range from being dead in sin, being alive in Christ and the work of Satan. This lesson will close looking at God’s great love.
