There are great blessings to living on the world God created; and God is pleased to have us enjoy the simple things of this world. But many, including evangelical Christians, get caught up in many other things. In particular, the events of 2020 saw many believers distracted by Covid and the politics of a controversial election.
One thing we must remember is that, for the believer, this is not our home. We are called to have an eye on what is coming up ahead. In today's lesson, we consider God's call for us to be heavenly-minded believers.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May God bless you through the teaching of God's Word.
As some states and localities begin to open up following the peak in COVID-19 infections, the world seeks for answers. In today's lesson, we consider how we can look upon this time from a Christian, Biblical perspective.
We will see:
- The unity and importance of the local church
- That personal relationships are important
- Physical touch is necessary
- The Sovereignty of God
May you be blessed as you listen to today's lesson.
The church around the world is under increasing persecution. Faced with imprisonment, torture, and even death, the temptation would be to give in to such persecution and deny Christ. Yet, many face persecution with such intense faith. The question facing believers today is, how do we stand firm in the face of such pressure.
Today's lesson provides one of the keys to standing firm. And it is not in our own faithfulness, but in the fact that the Lord Jesus is worthy. Looking at Colossians 1:12-23, today's lesson examines Paul's overflow of praise for the worth of the Lord Jesus.
