Duration: 1 hr 1 mins 25 secs

When did you last take time to recall God’s goodness to you and His answers to your prayers? Listen to this lesson to learn how David described all God had done for him. Hear about the waters of Shiloah which speak of God’s protection. Find out the difference between the free gift of imputed righteousness and experiential righteousness which we earn by walking by means of the Holy Spirit.

During this lesson Dr. Dean referenced an article on the Reformation by Barna Group. You can view it here.

Dr. Dean also recommends that you view a video about Hezekiah's Tunnel and the Gihon Spring which he discussed this evening. The video is located here.

Passage: Matthew 5:43-48
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 1 hr 9 mins 16 secs
If we only love those who love us, then how are we Christians any different from others? Listen to this lesson to learn what Jesus taught His disciples about the importance of love in the Sermon on the Mount. Inquire about two types of love in the Bible and see that loving our neighbor includes our enemies and those who treat us cruelly. Examine the positive and beneficial actions we can take to show our love for others. Understand that it is impossible to love others this way by our own efforts. Accept that this love comes as a by-product of a life spent walking by means of the Holy Spirit and learning and applying God's Word.

Passage: Matthew 5:17-20
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 47 mins 36 secs
When Jesus was here on this earth, why did many people accuse Him of trying to destroy the Mosaic Law? Listen to this lesson to learn that Jesus told His disciples that every part of the Scriptures, down to the smallest letter and line, was inspired by God and that He came to fulfill the Law and explain what it really meant. Understand that we are righteous by faith in Christ rather than by obeying the hundreds and hundreds of rules and regulations that the rabbis added over the years. Come to the conclusion that what we think and do must be subject to the will of God if we are to rule and reign with Christ in the coming Kingdom of heaven.

Find out about the loss of absolutes in today's culture and how most live in a morass of subjectivity, basing their behavior on how they feel. See why those who hold to the morality taught in God's Word should be prepared to be hated by those who hold to relative standards.
