  • Show Yourself a Man

    20/06/2021 Duración: 34min

    As David’s time to die drew near, he commanded his son, Solomon, saying, “I am going the way of all the earth. So be strong, and prove yourself a man” (1 Kings 2:1-2). Not long before passing away, David talked to his son (Solomon) about manhood. He admonished him to step up and be a […]

  • Embrace Disgrace

    20/06/2021 Duración: 31min

    On the surface, we all want to appear strong, capable, and reliable. But deep down, we all have areas of our lives where we’re weaker than we’d care to admit, vulnerable, and unsure. Maybe it’s helpful to define “disgrace” — A loss of reputation or respect as the result of a dishonorable action. A person or […]

  • Rising Above Intimidation

    13/06/2021 Duración: 41min

    Have you ever felt the joy that comes with bringing a lost soul to the Lord? Sadly, so many disciples go their entire lives, never feeling this joy. So many rob themselves of this joy because they are intimidated by many things concerning the work of evangelism. What can intimidate us? Lack of experience. Many […]

  • The Last Message of the Old Testament

    13/06/2021 Duración: 35min

    Four hundred years is how long God would be silent after His last message to Israel through the prophet Malachi. After Malachi’s preaching, there would cease to be prophets among Israel until the opening of the New Testament. This is something that the people of Israel acknowledge in their writings between the testaments (the Apocrypha). […]

  • Married and Bound

    06/06/2021 Duración: 39min

    Jack and Jill marry. Neither has been married before. They later divorce, and Jill marries John (John has never been married). Is all of this pleasing to God? Since many people find themselves in a similar situation, we must consider the difference between “married” and “bound.” Who is free to marry according to God’s law? […]

  • Israel’s Proverb

    06/06/2021 Duración: 32min

    In 597 BC, God would use the prophet Ezekiel to speak to people captive from Judah. God would call him to speak to rebellious people and explain why they were suffering in a foreign land. In Ezekiel 18, the prophet was called to address a false idea circulating among the nation. This theory had taken […]

  • The Two Paths

    30/05/2021 Duración: 33min

    The “Sermon on the Mount” contains Jesus’ perfect teaching. The sermon reveals practical things that we must do to become authentic disciples. The importance of genuine discipleship is emphasized in Matthew 7:13-14. The Lord says that everyone is on one of two spiritual paths. Let’s consider four important things about these paths. Everyone is not […]

  • Lessons From the Serengeti

    30/05/2021 Duración: 29min
  • Rising Above Ingratitude

    23/05/2021 Duración: 34min

    What will you be doing six months from now? Maybe it’s hard to imagine, given how turbulent life can be, but I’d guess you’ll be thinking quite a bit about sitting around the Thanksgiving table eating turkey and cranberry sauce. That’s right, six months from now, we’ll be giving thanks! But it seems like we […]

  • DoorDash Disciples

    23/05/2021 Duración: 33min

    Mark 6:6-13 It used to be that if you wanted to order in, you had two choices: pizza or Chinese food. Now you can order any food you want in with services like DoorDash. So you have a choice every time you want a particular restaurant’s offering: “Are we staying in or going out?” Pandemic […]

  • What Should Churches Do?

    16/05/2021 Duración: 37min

    In Matthew 16:18, Jesus promised to build His church. This promise was fulfilled in Acts 2 in the city of Jerusalem. Not only was Jerusalem the place where Jesus brought into existence His universal body of saved people, but it was also the city where the first local church of His people was established (Acts […]

  • Two Churches

    16/05/2021 Duración: 32min

    Are you part of the “brotherhood” (1 Peter 2:17)? Do you know what the “brotherhood” is? The “brotherhood” is a reference to the people of God under the New Covenant. It is describing the universal body of believers in Jesus. The term is not being used to describe a local body (church) of disciples. The […]

  • The Mother of Moses

    09/05/2021 Duración: 31min

    Moses is one of the greatest leaders in Scripture. God used him to lead Israel from hundreds of years of slavery. He wrote the first five books of the Bible. He also led the nation to the border of the Promised Land. Moses was a great man of God. But there would not have been […]

  • Solomon’s Quest

    09/05/2021 Duración: 34min

    One of the most neglected Old Testament books of study is Ecclesiastes. Within this book lies a powerful and relevant message. The book is written by King Solomon (Ecclesiastes 1:1, 12, 16; 12:9). It is about his quest to find happiness and purpose in life (Ecclesiastes 1:2-3; 2:3). Where does Solomon look? He began his […]

  • Hypocrisy

    02/05/2021 Duración: 36min

    Jesus condemned the scribes and Pharisees for being hypocrites (Matthew 23:13-30). Hypocrites are actors and pretenders. They live a double life (behaving one way before men and another way in private). Beyond impacting a person’s relationship with God, a life of spiritual hypocrisy impacts several people. Hypocrisy negatively impacts the world. The first step to […]

  • A King’s Prayer

    02/05/2021 Duración: 29min

    Hezekiah was one of the faithful kings of Judah. He was a righteous man who helped Judah avoid Assyrian captivity. After helping his kingdom avoid the same fate as the southern kingdom of Israel, the Holy Spirit tells us about an interesting moment in Hezekiah’s life. Four Observations from 2 Kings 20:1-7 Hezekiah is sick. […]

  • The Great Divider

    25/04/2021 Duración: 39min

    Who is Jesus? He is the Son of God. He is the Lord and Christ. He is a mighty man of miracles. He is the Lamb and Lion from the tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5-6). What about being a great divider?  What about being someone who came into the world to bring conflict and strife […]

    25/04/2021 Duración: 25min
  • Rising Above Racism

    18/04/2021 Duración: 45min

    Even though we have come a long way, unfortunately, even in 2021, racism continues to be on many people’s minds. It continues to pose challenges to people across the globe. But thankfully, the Bible provides a solution to this problem. Let’s consider how the scriptures can help effectively answer the challenges of racism. Racism is […]

  • My Servant

    18/04/2021 Duración: 36min

    Introduction When I worked in customer service — seven years as a barista at Starbucks — it was incredibly challenging dealing with people before they had their coffee, but also quite rewarding. I’d get to know people’s names, their and orders, and I’d usually try to have their drinks ready before they paid. Showing kindness […]
