In this lesson we will be studying when the Baptism in the Holy Spirit was first given and what it accomplished. God’s plan for the true church is to be Holy Spirit filled and we will clearly see this as we dig into these extremely important verses from Acts chapter two.
There are two parts of this portion of Luke’s Gospel that we will study in this lesson. The first is The Parable of the Tenants. Through this parable Jesus exposed the wicked schemes of the religious elite and how they would kill Him. The second is the continuation of Jesus confronting these hypocrites after they tried to trap Jesus. How Jesus responded to their attacks was simple, yet profound. This is a very interesting lesson.
We will look at two godly people that were in the Temple in Jerusalem when Jesus was being dedicated to God 40 days after He was born. The first we began to study in our last episode and this is Simeon and the second is Anna. There are some wonderful truths about the faith that we will examine in this lesson.
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.
Love and faith are the subjects in this lesson. It is important that we understand these two integral components of Biblical Christianity. Since our salvation is defined and determined by God, it is rather important that we know what He has to say on the matter. Our opinions are of no value when it comes to salvation and eternity.
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.
Ephesians 4:30-32 are the verses we will study in this lesson. In verse 30 Paul commands us to not grieve the Holy Spirit. In verse 31 he teaches how we need to put off sin. Then in verse 32 the apostle tells us what to put on in its place. This is a challenging and practical teaching on how to walk with Jesus.
In verses 25-29 of the fourth chapter of Ephesians we will examine a power principle about living the victorious Christian life. This Biblical principle is simply described as putting off our old nature, then having our way of thinking transformed and finally putting on the new man that is all about Christlikeness. This is a powerful and practical message, so don’t miss it.
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 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.
