Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

Passage: 1 Peter 5:7-8
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 27 secs
How do we cast all our cares on God? Listen to this lesson to learn that this involves submitting to authority and obedience to God’s Word. Find out that when we have genuine humility God will lift us up, but that going through the motions of worship must be accompanied by a humble mental attitude. See that our example is that Christ did not depend upon Himself to bear the suffering on the Cross but was totally dependent on God the Father and that should be our mindset when we face adversity and suffering.

Is it important for us to assert ourselves in order to be successful? Listen to this lesson to learn that the Bible teaches us that we are to humble ourselves. Find out the meaning of humility and its relationship to submission to authority. See that humility must be taught by parents when a child is young and may include corporal punishment. Accept that by nature we are all arrogant and that Christ’s submission to the Cross is to be our example.

When we are under incredible pressure what should we do? Listen to this lesson to learn that we are to follow Jesus’ example when He submitted Himself to unjust authority, even to a horrible death on the cross. Find out about three kinds of followers and how they apply to our lives. Learn that much of Peter’s teaching here comes from Isaiah in the Old Testament referring to Christ. As believers realize that we have a choice whether to become disciples and say no to self-indulgence and self-centeredness.

During this Bible class Dr. Dean referenced an important video to watch called "The Sacrifice," available on Joel Kramer's website at sourceflix.com.

When we submit to unfair authority are we just being a doormat? Listen to this lesson to see that Christians who obey unfair people who are over us develop humility and grace orientation. See that when we obey these people we are being gracious toward them even though they do not deserve it. Understand that how we respond to authority reveals how we respond to Christ. Find out that being submissive will be rewarded at the Judgment Seat of Christ.

Passage: Romans 13:3-5
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 59 mins 16 secs
Have you ever wondered why God allowed evil rulers like Nero and Adolph Hitler to come to power? Listen to this lesson to understand God's role in raising up rulers and removing them. See how the purpose of all authority, whether in the home, at school, on the job, or in the government is to bring peace and order into our lives. Don't be surprised to learn that it's not okay to disobey an authority just because we think they're unjust or we don't agree with them. Find out two Biblical reasons why we should be obedient to those over us and how our submission does not make us a doormat but glorifies God for all eternity.

Passage: Romans 13:1-7
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 58 mins 5 secs
Surely you don't expect me to obey my unreasonable boss, or play second fiddle to my clueless husband, or pay every penny of my taxes to an out-of-control government? Listen to this lesson to learn that God is the One who instituted all authority and it's the believer's responsibility and privilege to submit to those in charge. Examine the meaning of submission and see the rare exceptions when we are to "obey God rather than man". Understand that these authorities are designed for our benefit and that humbling ourselves in obedience will bring rich rewards in time and eternity.

"Why can't you be more like your brother?" If you were ever compared to a brother or sister you're going to enjoy hearing this lesson about the childhood of Jesus living with His parents and younger siblings. Find out the way young Jewish boys were raised and what it meant when they reached 12 years of age. See how this explains Jesus' actions in the temple in Jerusalem. Learn about the core sin of the universe related to the angelic conflict and see why it was necessary for Jesus to learn obedience to authority through the unique challenges He faced in His life.

Passage: Acts 13:1-3
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 19 secs
Our scene is in Antioch in a well-established, conservative congregation, about 15 years after Pentecost. Antioch thrives with commerce and the decadent culture of the times. It also has a large Jewish population, within which are Christians, viewed as a sect of Judaism. Teachers and prophets gather to minister to the Lord and fast. What does it mean to minister to the Lord? What does fasting accomplish? Today a fast can be an initiation into a weight-loss program, a systemic purge, a social protest or a mystical manipulation of God. What was fasting about as it was practiced scripture? Is it a prescribed ritual for us? Is Biblical fasting an anachronistic term in our modern culture. Should we fast?

Passage: Colossians 3:18-21 & Ephesians 5:25-33
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 46 mins 10 secs
The issue in these passages is for husbands to love their wives. The analogy is to love as Christ loves the Church. You must understand the gospel in order to understand this kind of love. The purpose for Christ’s love for His Church is to sanctify, purify and present her to Himself without residue of sin, eternally set apart to God. A Christian marriage is a training aid to show the world the relationship between Christ and His Church. Learn how elements of doctrine are revealed through marriage and its unique oneness lived out through different roles with distinct identities.
