Colossians (2011)
Sun, Oct 30, 2011
by Robert Dean
Passage: Colossians 2:4-6
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 53 mins 21 secs
In the classic nursery rhyme, there is a line that says, "how does your garden grow?" As we begin to phase out of Paul's introductory section of Colossians, we begin to learn of the imperatives used to guide believers in the basic structure of the Christian life. In this lesson, we learn that order, organization, and self-discipline are keys to a good spiritual "garden". Are you including in your own daily structure reading God's Word, prayer time, and Bible study? If Paul were mentioning twenty-first century believers in his greeting as he was the Colossians, would he be thankful for our own orderly, organized, and self-disciplined spiritual life?

How does your (spiritual) garden grow?
Proverbs (2013)
Sun, Jul 28, 2013
by Robert Dean
Passage: Proverbs
Series: Proverbs (2013)
Duration: 51 mins 23 secs
"Me! Me! Me! It's all about me. You may think it's about you but it's really all about me!" None of us would say this out loud but it's what we think. Listen to this lesson to learn about the enemy of every believer called the sin nature. See how Proverbs teaches that character must be taught from the crib and that no one is born with self control or discipline. Discover how God the Holy Spirit enhances moral values and makes them spiritual values that lead to character transformation.
