Colossians (2011)
Sun, Aug 07, 2011
by Robert Dean
Passage: Colossians 1:21-23
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 48 mins 41 secs
How do we “continue in the faith”, and what does that mean? Paul reminds us that reconciliation gives us hope. But what is the Biblical view of hope? It is a conviction of reality, an expectation of our destiny.

In this lesson we again are reminded that as believers we are “future oriented”, living for the future.

Passage: Colossians 3:12-25
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 52 mins 41 secs
Pastor Dean gives us the history of Memorial Day and the importance of its observance.

We see the first of many reports on Pastor Dean’s trip to Israel, sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In an overview of the last half of Colossians 3 we understand that to live in the believer’s newness of life we are to live a certain way now that we are His. We learn that we teach and admonish one another through Psalms and hymns. We see how, as we grow, Christians serve in many capacities using spiritual gifts. Most importantly we learn that service to the Lord is what life is all about.

If someone sues you for your shirt, would you take off your coat and hand it over, too? That's what Jesus told His disciples in the Sermon on the Mount. Listen to this lesson to learn how this astonishing message was taught to believers to show them how they must confront the full rigors of discipleship. Learn about the future Kingdom of Heaven. Discover the five interpretative frameworks for this discourse and which one is most logical. See how our role of ruling and reigning with Christ is determined by what we do on earth and how this leads to a richer, fuller life today.

Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 56 mins 32 secs
"Hey! Look at me! Blow on that trumpet! Tell everyone I just dropped a lot in the offering plate." Listen to this lesson to learn how Jesus told His disciples to give, not just the act but the motivation behind the act. Notice what He promises about rewards. Understand how praying should be offered in private, never to show off what great prayer warriors we are. Find out the meaning and value of fasting. Affirm that God looks at the heart of each of us and that it's not what we do but why we do it that counts.

Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 46 mins 7 secs
Why does God allow sin and evil on this earth? Listen to this lesson for a Biblical answer to this age-old question. Learn about the differences between God’s sovereign permissive will and His decreed will. Find out that the suffering we face in life is known by God and is intended for our ultimate good.

Passage: Matthew 10:28-33
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 53 mins 40 secs
What does it mean to commit your life to Christ? Listen to this lesson to see that this is not a command found in the Word of God but that all believers are called to be disciples. Find out about the responsibilities and challenges of discipleship as taught by Jesus. Understand the distinction between directives to unbelievers on how to be saved and directives to those who are believers on how they are to grow and mature. See that believers who are disobedient are under divine discipline here on earth and will suffer loss of eternal rewards but will not lose their salvation.

Passage: Matthew 10:40-11:1
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 58 mins 42 secs
When you became an adult and were leaving home, did your parents give you admonitions and warnings? Listen to this lesson to learn about nine warnings Jesus gave His disciples. See how He emphasized that their allegiance must always be first to God, rather than to their family. Understand that God requires a radical revision of how we use our time and that we have to be willing to give up what we desperately want for God’s plan, if required. See that we need to keep in mind the Judgment Seat of Christ so we can make decisions and live our lives in the light of eternity.
1 Peter (2015)

by Robert Dean
Passage: 1 Peter 1:3-4
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 56 mins 21 secs
“I won’t have to cross Jordan alone.” Have you sung songs about crossing the Jordan River when you die? Listen to this lesson to learn that the Jordan River has nothing to do with death. Understand that only two Israelites who left Egypt crossed into the Promised Land as a reward for their obedience to God. See that salvation is always a free gift but rewards are earned. Hear the example of Moses as someone who lost that portion of his inheritance. Decide whether you want to live in obedience to God and press on to spiritual maturity to receive the rewards of eternity.

Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 51 mins 53 secs
Do we have to become like a little child or sell everything we own and give to the poor in order to go to Heaven? Listen to this lesson to learn that Jesus is not dealing with going to Heaven but rather, He is talking about serving in the future kingdom of Heaven. Hear some of the positions taken by commentators on what the rich young ruler was seeking. Find out Jesus’ response to the questions and how it involves treasure in Heaven. The challenge for us as believers is to follow Jesus as His disciples so we can glorify God.
