Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 12 mins 22 secs
Where can we learn how to praise God? Listen to this lesson to see that the Book of Psalms is a songbook filled with praise to God. See that our praise must be based on biblical truth and not on human emotion. Our thanksgiving and praise should be a response to God that must come from what we have learned from the Word of God. Find out the difference between thanksgiving and praise. Recognize that we are the ones who need God and should tell others about Him and all He has done for us.

Get ready! Life is a battleground as cosmic warfare rages around us. Listen to this lesson to learn about the spiritual warfare that involves God and Satan.

Passage: 1 Thessalonians 1:3
Series: 1 Thessalonians (2013)
Duration: 57 mins 3 secs
Please note that at the beginning of the video it is incorrectly labeled 1 Thessalonians Lesson #2. This is actually Lesson #6.

"Oh God, help!" Does this sound like most of your prayers because you wait until you're desperate to pray? Listen to this lesson to learn from the Apostle Paul's prayers. See the importance of turning off all the things that distract us and setting aside time to pray on a regular basis. Discover why praise and gratitude should be the foundation for all our prayers and how learning the Word of God teaches us the spiritual blessings we should praise God for. Instead of asking God only for things for ourselves, learn how to pray for others. Appreciate why we should pray to God the Father as we realize that Jesus and the Holy Spirit are both interceding for us at God's throne.

Passage: Proverbs 3:13-18
Series: Proverbs (2013)
Duration: 59 mins 41 secs
"Bless you." "Have a blessed day." Are these just airy greetings with little meaning? When we think of blessing and its synonym, happiness, we think of money in the bank, a big salary, vitality, and brilliant relationships. Proverbs tells us that God is offering us wisdom, which is worth more than all of these things and leads to true happiness. Nothing we wish for can hold a candle to wisdom. When we attain wisdom, we are promised enduring joy, long life, and recognition. The book of Proverbs explains the conditions God has attached to gaining His wisdom. Listen to this message to learn nine ways to help develop wisdom in your life and the ability to enjoy the exciting blessings that come with it.

Passage: Colossians 3:16-17 & Ephesians 5:18-20
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 57 mins 8 secs
God tells us to sing. Why? To express the word of God that dwells in us richly, teaching and admonishing in wisdom. Our inspiration is God’s grace; our motivation is truth; our audience is God; and our conduit is excellence. Worship, expressed in this way, will transform our values in the midst of a culture that has no absolute values. Excellence is in the standard. Adhere to the standard, and real beauty will be expressed. Our question is not, “Is this good enough?” Our question should be, “Is this the absolute best means to glorify God, reflect who He is and echo the Truth He has given?”
