The Way to Think When Tested

The book of James is a vivid expression of how real faith looks when practiced as a true servant of Jesus. In the first chapter, the common theme is how Christians should think when they are tested. Since our actions are preceded by thoughts, James tells us how to think about common trials so we can live out our faith as God would have us

How to Change My Attitude about the Pandemic

How we deal with problems begins with our attitude. Any problem, including this pandemic, can be a challenge but the Bible actually show us how to approach any problem with a renewed attitude if we are a Christian. When Paul wrote Philippians he was in jail, but if you didn't know that it would be hard to detect based on his great attitude. In this lesson, we focus on five things from Phil. 4:4-9 that Paul reminds us we can do to make the best of this difficult situation.

Matthew

Matthew is the first book in the N.T. for good reason. The goal of the book is to present Jesus as a continuation and fulfillment of the O.T. Matthew is a Gospel account written by a Jew, to Jews about a Jew. So it's perfectly within the focus of this book for Jesus to be presented as Messiah, Teacher and Emmanuel.

Don’t Limit Yourself

If you are a Christian, you have a story to tell. While the heart of evangelism is telling the story of Jesus, it also involves each of us who are Christians too. Paul understood this principle and used his story to help build a bridge to Jesus for others. This lesson considers three ways he did this in Acts 22:1-16.

Joy in Christ

At the heart of Philippians is the message "Rejoice in the Lord." Philippians chapter three is really a reminder that Jesus is enough. If you have less than Jesus you don't have enough. If you have more than Jesus you have too much. Subscribe in iTunes Subscribe on YouTube

Joy in Loving

It's good to hear a spiritual principle explained, but it's better to see it lived out. That is basically what Phil. 2:1-8 entails. The philosophy of "Joy in Loving" is explained but then Paul adds a face to the teaching in showing them Jesus practicing "Joy in Loving."
