Praise for God’s Benefits

In times of trouble, we need to hold fast to a faithful view of God. Not only does the book of Psalms show us God, but Psalm 103:2 cautions us to not forget God's benefits. As a result, Psalm 103 is really the gushing praise of David as he remembers what God has done for him. Literally everything that is good comes from God, but David mentions many specific blessings that all who fear God should never forget!

Shelter in Grace

Tired of the expression "shelter in place?" This lesson seeks to put a twist on our unfortunate situation. As we continue our "Serenity from the Psalms" series, we are reminded that Psalm 91 teaches us we can "Shelter in Grace!" We are not the first generation that needed help during times of pestilence. This comforting Psalm reminds us why God is the place of shelter for his people during difficult times.

The Story of Jesus in the Psalms

Most people probably think the story of Jesus is more of a New Testament focus. But this story is first told in the Old Testament Scriptures. In this lesson, we'll specifically center our attention on the Psalms. It's powerful to imagine that his story was told in prophecy long before Jesus was incarnate. All the significant parts of the story are there, but we'll highlight the parts that matter the most for our future and hope!

Things Are Going to Get Better

The news today is depressing. Things are going to get worse before they get better. But Psalms 16 has a different message: "Things are going to get better!" In this lesson, we learn how David found the benefits and hope of being in a covenant relationship with God. Christians can have this too! These blessings are both here and in the hereafter!

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.
