We are only going to dig into two verses in this lesson. They contain some of the fruit that came out of the Day of Pentecost as seen in Acts chapter two. There are two points that stand out. The first is the power of the Holy Spirit that brought 3000 souls to Christ and the second is the devotion those early saints had for Jesus. This is a very important lesson to understand and apply to our lives.
We will continue studying Peter’s first sermon after Christ’s death, resurrection and ascension into heaven, This is a fiery message that was anointed by the Holy Spirit as is proved by the tremendous results it produced. We will see the simple logic Peter used that made this message so influential. Don’t miss this message.
We will study in this lesson some Christ’s most radical teachings on true discipleship. The standard for those who want to be His true followers hasn’t changed since He originally spoke those words. The question has always been and still is, do we really want to be a disciple of Christ? This is a powerful message, so don’t miss it.
There are two principal topics in this lesson. The first is on the necessity of repentance being an integral part of a genuine Christian’s life. The second is about the account where Jesus heals a demon possessed woman and the persecution that comes against Him as a result. This is a great lesson so don’t miss it.
What did Jesus teach after He gave the Parable of the Sower? That will be the first part of this lesson. Then we will examine what Jesus did when His mother and brothers visited Him while He was teaching in a home. The final account we will look at is when Jesus calmed a raging sea. There’s some really good stuff in this lesson.
What Jesus said about John the Baptist is a major portion of this lesson. What made John a man of God will do the same for any that are willing to follow Jesus as the Bible teaches. After this we will begin looking at the account of a sinner woman that seeks after Jesus who was eating at Simon the Pharisees house.
It’s nostalgia time. We are going back to the first year the podcast came out and doing a short series on what it means to be a radical Christian. Here is a spoiler that will come out in this three part series. Being a radical Christian is only being a Biblical Christian. Listen and you will learn why.
John 18:1-9 are the verses we are studying in this podcast. We will look at Christ’s scourging and a portion of His trial before Pilate. I think what Pilate said to the crowd is a very good summery of this lesson. He said, “Behold the man” and that is what we will do in this study. We will look at Jesus and a portion of His suffering as He is on His way to Calvary for our sake and salvation.
John 18:1-18 is about Jesus’ arrest while in the Garden of Gethsemane. Of course, we will be looking at the wonderful Savior and the majestic and courageous way that He deals with His arrest. Every Christian needs to know these truths that will come out in this episode because they are part of the foundation of what our faith is all about.
The Gospel of John 15:7-13 are the verses we will study today. This is a continuation of Jesus’ discourse on what it means to abide in Him. What Jesus is teaching on abiding is extremely radical if we understand what He is teaching. All those who truly love Jesus will love His teaching on abiding. So listen, be blessed and grow in Christ.
