Colossians (2011)
Sun, Jun 03, 2012
by Robert Dean
Passage: Colossians 3:15
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 53 mins 28 secs
Christians may misunderstand the meaning of inner peace, seeing it as a manifestation of understanding God’s will in their lives. What are the criteria for knowing God’s will for your life? How does peace relate to unity within the Body of Christ? Contrast inner peace with the mental state of Jesus in Gethsemane just prior to the crucifixion. Can a Christian experience deep anguish and still be within the will of God?
Colossians (2011)

Passage: 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 49 mins 20 secs
Where do you find a definition of love from which to set standards, expectations and goals? Does scripture clearly define love? Attributes of love are introduced throughout scripture in concepts including submission, authority, grace, mercy, faithfulness, forgiveness and a multitude of others. Love is ultimately exemplified at the cross. While emotion and affection can be a part of love, they are more the result than the motivator. God sets the standard for love, so to understand love we must know God. For a believer, love for one another is a reflection of God’s love for us which is based on His integrity and righteousness. The Holy Spirit is our only means of approaching the love God wants His body to exhibit toward one another and to perpetuate the stability of His divine institutions.

Note that the class series (Romans) on the video is incorrect.

Colossians (2011)
Sun, Nov 04, 2012
by Robert Dean
Passage: Colossians 3:18-21 & Ephesians 5:25-33
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 14 secs
The pattern for a husband’s love for his wife is a model of Christ’s love for His church. There is comparison also to Christ’s relationship of love for the Father and the love a husband has for his own body. Apart from cultural, transitory, romantic love, this is a broader, eternal, mental attitude love grounded in the character of the one who loves and his knowledge of God. Like God’s covenant love for Israel, a husband’s love will not be disrupted by circumstances. There is an element of substitution in the comparison of a husband’s love to the sacrifice of Christ for His church. Learn the definition of love and how it functions objectively only when it conforms to God’s intention in scripture.
1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Tue, Apr 21, 2015
by Robert Dean
Passage: 1 Samuel 1:8-10
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 40 secs
Can we trust our feelings and reactions to determine what we should do? Or do our responses lead us astray? Listen to this lesson to learn the correct role for emotion in the Christian life. Learn that emotion, in and of itself, is not wrong but that we cannot run our lives based on our feelings alone. Hear examples of weeping in the Bible and see that weeping can be for legitimate reasons or a sign of self-pity and manipulation. Instead of depending on emotions to guide our actions, we need to learn to depend on the Word of God.

Passage: 1 Samuel 22:1 & Psalm 142:1-7
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 7 mins 18 secs
When you feel like the rug has been pulled out from under you and you’re overwhelmed by all your problems, where should you turn? Listen to this lesson to learn that reading the psalms that David wrote when he was persecuted by Saul are a good place to go. Find out that we can apply the problem solving devices in prayer and that our default position should always be to turn to God. Learn that there’s nothing wrong with crying out to God because that is acknowledging our absolute dependence on Him. Hear five points on depression and see the role anger plays when we’re depressed.
