Lesson 183: If You Love Jesus, You’re His Ambassador! (Part 3)

2019-12-27T13:55:15-08:00

There is a great hymn tha says, "Oh for a thousand tingues to sin my great Redeemer's praise... " We don't each have one thousand tongues. We have one. And we have the privilege of using our tongues to tell others about the love of Jesus. I will tell you more ways to share the Lord in future lessons. Right now, we are looking at scriptures throughout each book of the New Testament that have a relationship to Jesus' Great Commission to go into all the world and share the good news with every person. If we truly know and [...]

Lesson 184: Sharing Jesus With Others (Part 1)

2019-12-27T13:28:49-08:00

God wants to use you and I to win others to Christ. There is no greater thrill in life than to experience the Jesus who is alive and then lead others to the Lord. But when a family member or very close friend puts their faith in Jesus, we experience a special joy—especially if that person has resisted the gospel for a long time. To know Jesus is to love and obey Him. That’s when we know real joy. Not the “joy” of the world that depends on circumstances, but the joy of the Holy Spirit that only Christ’s disciples [...]

Lesson 185: His Light in the Darkness

2019-12-27T13:09:46-08:00

"But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night." Psalm 1:2 The Psalmist caught something God would have each of us to grasp. His Word is delightful, delicious and demanding - and the daily nourishment for a true disciple. Allow me a personal testimony. When I first met Jesus on the tiny Pacific island of Okinawa, I had no contact with known Christians for some three months. But heaven had come to my earth, the Savior enveloped me in His presence, and my Gideon New Testament exploded with revelation that [...]

Lesson 186: Sharing Jesus With Others (Part 2)

2019-12-27T13:08:04-08:00

I should have given you Part 2 of “Sharing Jesus With Others” (Lesson 184) in our last lesson. My mistake. So here it is. All of us who know and love the Lord want our family members to trust Him also. I want to share some lessons teaching you how I share Jesus with others. Sometimes it can be so easy when we meet someone who is searching for truth and peace. Other times, it can be more difficult—especially with love ones who may not be so eager for spiritual discussion. So let’s begin there—right at home—with love ones or [...]

Lesson 187: Sharing Jesus With Others (Part 3)

2019-12-27T13:06:47-08:00

The coming new heaven and new earth are real. So is hell. And so is death—the one appointment no one can break. Jesus Christ is eternal life. When he lives within us by the Holy Spirit, We are assured of life forevermore with Him (I John 5:13). That’s why a true follower of Christ wants others to know the Lord. It’s why Jesus calls us to be His witnesses. We are called to shine as lights in a dark world (Matthew 5:16) so that others will listen to us when we tell them how they can receive the Lord and [...]

Lesson 188: Learning to Discern the Will of God for Your Life (Part 1)

2019-12-27T13:04:43-08:00

Christian lives, marriages and homes are collapsing in huge numbers. Christians are making foolish and even sinful decisions and regretting the terrible consequences. The problem? They don’t know how to find God’s will before they act. Of course, some did know God’s will, disobeyed and are now paying, or will pay, the sad consequences. To many, God’s will is not the critical desire of their hearts because they are determined to do what they want. “Don’t bother me with biblical facts—my mind is made up,” has been the tragic attitude of great numbers of Christians. SERIOUS CHRISTIANS ONLY This lesson [...]

Lesson 190: Learning to Discern the Will of God for Your Life (Part 3)

2019-12-27T13:03:23-08:00

A LOOK BACK In our last two lessons, we began to study how to seek and find God’s will in the many important decisions we must make in our lives. I suggest you review those lessons of the first three steps in seeking God’s will. They include: 1) DESIRE GOD’S WILL ABOVE ANYTHING ELSE 2) DEVELOP A STRONG FOUNDATION OF SCRIPTURAL PRINCIPLES 3) INNER IMPRESSION Each of the above points is explained in detail in Parts 1 and 2. Now we shall study three more points in learning how to discern the difference between the will of God and that [...]

Lesson 191: Learning to Discern the Will of God for Your Life (Part 4)

2019-12-27T13:02:49-08:00

It’s time to finish our lesson in how to seek and find the will of God in our lives. What is more important? Absolutely nothing! The Lord has a wonderful plan for your life. There is no one else like you. You are special to God! And He wants to make Himself real and present in your life—moment by moment—day by day. That’s why I’m sharing nine simple points for you to put into practice as you seek God’s will in those important decisions you must make. The first three studies covered six of these points. They are; 1) DESIRE [...]

Lesson 192: Biblical Prophecy Concerning Jesus: Incredible and Indisputable (Part 1)

2019-12-27T12:58:11-08:00

WHY YOU CAN TRUST THE BIBLE What a God! He alone could ridicule heathen gods, idols and false claims of divinity. “Tell the future!”, God mocked them. They couldn’t. But He did—perfectly—thousands of years in advance! Like the coming Messiah. Who? How? Where? When? No wonder the prophecies fulfilled by Jesus Christ strengthen our faith. And when shared, they build faith in others. I do not believe in Jesus as Messiah because His life and claims offer a possibility that He might be the Son of God whose offer of forgiveness of sins and eternal life is real. I believe [...]

Lesson 193: Biblical Prophecy Concerning Jesus: Incredible and Indisputable (Part 2)

2019-12-27T12:48:27-08:00

WHY YOU CAN TRUST THE BIBLE True Christianity is a faith built on a solid foundation of facts. Take biblical prophecy, for example. Only God could say, “Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure.” Isaiah 46:9-10. And He proved it by telling His prophets future events—hundreds of them—and then bringing them to pass in exact [...]
