In this week’s podcast we continue looking at the story of Lot. In Genesis 13, a contention arose among Lot and Abraham concerning their material possessions and, while Abraham yielded, Lot went his own way. Up until this time, Lot was following and under the protection of Abraham, but surprisingly he never developed a personal […]
Why is God called the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob in the Bible, but He is not called the God of Lot? Isaac, Jacob, and Lot were all second-generation believers, so what accounts for God identifying Himself with Isaac and with Jacob but not with Lot? In this podcast we look at […]
The Old Testament is rich in pictures and stories that can help us to better understand our New Testament walk. In this podcast we consider Lot’s experience in Genesis and see why passivity in the Christian life can lead to the squandering of all of God’s blessings. We also consider the importance of developing a […]
Did you know that our contacting of people is considered a kind of eating. There is an important spiritual principle for us to lay hold of in the Bible that should govern all of our relationships. The dietary regulations in Leviticus 11 and Peter’s vision in Acts 10 clearly reveal this spiritual principle. Find out […]
But flee youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. – 2 Timothy 2:22 Abraham shows us a picture of someone living in fellowship with God while Lot, on the other hand, shows us a picture of a defeated righteous man living in […]
Have you ever wondered why you sometimes feel dead toward spiritual things. It might be related to your eating. No, not the physical act of eating but the other kind of eating. Whether we realize it or not we are all the time eating something. There is a kind of psychological as well as spiritual […]
Peter’s denial of the Lord, shortly before the Lord Jesus’ crucifixion, is recorded in all four of the gospels. Peter was a person who was always confident in himself, but on the eve of the Lord’s crucifixion his confidence failed. What lessons can we learn today from Peter’s failure?
The record of King David’s failure in the Old Testament is striking. It should serve as a strong warning to us today that regardless of our position or attainment in God’s kingdom, it is still possible for us to fall into sin. In this podcast we take a look at two lessons we can learn […]
We all know the story of Cain and Abel but do we know the lessons that we can learn from Cain’s failure? In Genesis 4:7 we are told that sin is crouching at the door and that his desire is for us but that we must rule over him. In this podcast we take a […]
Today we live in an exceedingly sinful environment. There is temptation from without accompanied by the struggle within ourselves. In 2 Timothy 2:22 Paul charges us to flee youthful lusts and pursue with those. In Peter’s epistle he tells us to be sober and watch. In the gospels the Lord Jesus tells us to watch […]
In all of God’s dealings with us there should be an issue. In this podcast, we take a look at a few examples in the Bible that help us to understand what God is after when He exercises His discipline upon us.
When we experience the Lord’s discipline (Hebrews 12:5) we may have one of two reactions: we either become discouraged and downcast, or or we want to give up on the Lord. In this podcast we will take a look at what our attitude should be when we come under the Lord’s disciplining hand.
How do we know that we are genuine children of God? We know because we have a Father who not only loves us but also disciplines us as His sons (Heb. 12:7). In this podcast we will see the reason behind the discipline of God and learn what to do when we are under His […]
We may not see many examples of people who fear God in today’s society, but the Bible provides many examples, both positive and negative, that illustrate this matter. In this week’s podcast we continue to take a look at this crucial aspect of our experience and relationship with the Lord.
There was a time when both believers and unbelievers alike feared God, but today it is “normal” for people to deny the existence of God and His coming judgment. In this week’s podcast we get a word to restore in us a normal fear of God so that we would be sanctified and preserved in […]
Did you know that one out of every 20 verses in the New Testament talk about the Lord’s second coming? What does it mean to live in the light of the Lord’s second coming? In this podcast we begin to consider this matter and how it relates to our daily life.
Why do we often fall prey to guilt or Satan’s accusations after sinning? It is because we do not fully appreciate the blood of Christ. In this week’s podcast we are exhorted to consider the preciousness of the blood of Christ so that we may live a holy manner of life.
We all crave reality, but why does it sometimes seem that the things of God are not so real to us? In this week’s podcast we take a look at John 16. In order to experience the Spirit of reality guiding us into all the reality, there is a prerequisite: the exercise of our conscience. […]
What do we need to counteract the degradation of this age and to preserve us in God’s economy? We need a good conscience. In this week’s podcast we continue to look at the connection between faith, God’s economy, our love for the Lord, and our need to keep a good conscience.
