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.

Can we trust our inner desires to bring us happiness? Listen to this lesson to see that our wants are not always what’s best for us. Gain an overview of the life of Saul, the king that God permitted for Israel even though he was not what they needed. See a broader use of the term prophecy. Find out three validating events concerning Saul’s choice as king. Learn about an event that reveals Saul’s character flaws when he disobeys Samuel. Remember from the reign of Saul that God is pleased with those who learn His Word and obey it.

Passage: 1 Samuel
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 8 mins 13 secs
If you’ve always thought of the Bible as an obscure, pious book filled with stories of great Biblical heroes, think again. Listen to this lesson to learn about a country dominated by earthy, flawed, and sinful men, much as we have in our country today. Follow a dark period in Israel’s history and learn about three very different men, Samuel, Saul, and David. Learn about a murderous king influenced by demonism. See that as the book begins, God is working behind the scene, preparing to deliver Israel by bringing change. As you approach the study of this book, ask yourself if you’re like many in those days, trying to be a covert believer rather than living in open obedience to God’s Word.

Passage: Acts 13:13-38
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 0 mins 49 secs
Paul is giving the gospel to Jews and God-fearing Gentiles in the local synagogue. Paul addresses them within the framework of their familiar as he anchors his message deeply within scripture, stressing their understanding of forgiveness of sin and justification. If it were only that easy to approach an unbeliever today, one who had such a deep knowledge of scripture. This is highly unlikely. Our approach must confront the realities of their position. The optimal starting point is for us to be profoundly familiar with the Word and to have a developed relationship with our audience. Paul will show us how to deal with a variety of circumstances so that we will have a pattern from which to launch our own approach and the assurance that rugged roadblocks aren’t necessarily terminal.

Passage: Acts 13:1-25
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 33 secs
The gift of prophesy still existed in Acts before direct revelation ceased after the Canon was complete. The Holy Spirit, in specific divine guidance, actually called out Barnabas and Saul (who certainly had this gift), to take the gospel to these destinations. Learn the meaning of Saul’s name and the significance of his new name. Travel their path; encounter their resistance and the positive response. Learn about how the synagogue functioned. See how Paul spoke to these Jews, encapsulating Jewish history and focus in few words and introducing its long-awaited fulfillment through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We learn that evangelism may be most effective when the presentation is specific to the hearer.
