The Unencumbered Life —The choices you make in this life should be like Mary’s not Martha’s. The word of Jesus is available to you. Seize every opportunity to listen and consider. Don't let yourself be distracted by things that matter less. Keep them in their proper place. Remember worldly things, as good as they might be, are not eternal. Leave plenty of room for “that good part” of life.
God Has a Purpose - Do We Have a Choice? —God has always tried to demonstrate to humanity that his purpose never changes. He has also left every person the choice whether to follow his purpose or reject it. That is no contradiction. Bible examples show this.
Sharing in Christ’s Sufferings —In this lesson, we think about Paul’s profound prayer in Philippians 3:10. In this verse, Paul states the very purpose of his life as a Christian.
Are You Actually a Christian? —If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you have not yet ACTUALLY become a Christian. You need to correct this.
Are You Actively a Christian? —If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you are not ACTIVELY a Christian. You need to correct this.
Are You Christian in Attitude? —If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you do not have the ATTITUDE of a Christian. You need to correct this.
Are You a Christian in Ambition? —If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you do not have the AMBITION of a Christian. You need to correct this.
Three Marvelous Mountains. Various mountains are mentioned in the Bible. In this lesson we consider three of them: Mount Ararat, Mount Sinai, and Mount Zion. Well, it's not so much the mountains that we consider, but the marvelous events that took place on them. We especially consider three things in each event: salvation, a sacrifice, and a promise.
The Helmet of Salvation. As Christians we are at war —not against flesh and blood but against the spiritual forces of wickedness and darkness. To win this war, to fight the good fight, we must be adequately equipped. Part of that equipment is "the helmet of salvation" (Ephesians 6:13).
Why the Warnings? —The scripture warns people to repent, obey God, and be saved through Jesus. Those who continue in unbelief and disobedience will be condemned. But God wants us to be saved. That's why he warns us.
Crossword 18 —A 31-word puzzle. The puzzle includes this clue: “System of faith, good deeds, and worship (James 1:27).”
The Disciple’s Forgiveness. Jesus said, 'If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents forgive him' (Luke 17:3). This requires that sin be dealt with and not overlooked.
The Disciple’s Repentance Repentance is necessary to forgiveness of sins. Three things accompany repentance: godly sorrow, confession of sins, and appropriateNbsp;deeds.
The Disciple’s Fellowship Paul says, 'Note those who cause divisions and occasions of stumbling contrary to the teaching you have learned. Turn away from them' (Romans 16:17).
The Disciple’s Judgment Some people will say, 'You have no right to judge'. Usually they have in mind the scripture that says, 'Do not judge, in order that you will not be judged' (Matthew 7:1-2). This can be misunderstood.
The Disciple’s Justice God is always fair and just. He is no respecter of persons. The disciple of Christ likewise should be without partiality, hypocrisy, or injustice.
A Disciple’s Rebuke —Occasionally in any group of Christ’s disciples, someone’s behaviour may not accord with a disciple’s code of conduct. Should that disciple be rebuked?
A Disciple’s Fear —In this lesson we discuss a disciple’s godly fear and what John meant when he said that there is no fear in love.
The Disciplined Individual —As disciples of Christ we are unique individuals free to live as we choose. We learn from Christ the right way to do this with individualism, discipleship, and initiative.
