Passage: James 1:2-6
Series: God’s Protection in Any Crisis
Duration: 1 hr 7 mins 12 secs
What should we do when others are panicking around us? Listen to this lesson beginning and ending with a number of relevant Bible verses. Find out why God allows suffering in our lives. Follow Scriptures from the book of James to see how believers should respond, even in the darkest times. Find out having a mental attitude of joy is not the same as happiness and how we can only have this when walking by means of the Holy Spirit. Challenge yourselves to focus on the promises of God rather than on the problems around us.

Passage: 2 Samuel 11-12
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 34 secs
What can we learn from David’s sins with Bathsheba? Listen to this lesson to hear four main points that apply not only to David but to all believers. See how we are provided with a window into the pathology of sin and our lust pattern trends that motivate us. Find out what two options we have for our thinking. Remember that no matter how we fail, there is always grace and there is hope.

Passage: Psalm 89:38-52
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 40 secs
How honest are you when you pray? Listen to this lesson to hear about a psalmist who expresses his frustration over what is happening and asks God if He’s going to keep His promises. He wonders why the nation is under divine discipline and points out that they are a reproach to God’s name. As he expresses his unhappiness, he petitions God to change the circumstances. See how he recovers and expresses once more his understanding of God’s Word. When we are in a situation like that, we need to remember to trust God and His promises, which can be hindered by our disobedience but are never cancelled.

Passage: 1 Thessalonians 1:8 & Isaiah 40:31
Series: 1 Thessalonians (2013)
Duration: 53 mins 18 secs
Accept Christ as your Savior and you'll never have any problems or times of suffering again. Not so fast! Listen to this lesson to learn why all Christians will suffer at times. See how bad things happen because we have sin natures and live in a fallen world. Learn that sometimes God disciplines us in the same way earthly parents discipline their children. Gain an understanding of this by learning how God brought four-fold suffering on David for his sin with Bathsheba. Accept that God is always there to help us when we are suffering and that it is for our ultimate good.

Passage: Romans 5:8-12
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 59 mins 50 secs
What do justification, reconciliation, and hope have in common. In this class we learn how Paul connects these to the cross and the so great salvation we have "in Christ." Only by living in light of this reality can we "be saved," i.e., be delivered from God's discipline and judgment in time ("wrath").
