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.

What is the most frightening event you have ever experienced? Listen to this lesson to take a tour of the Bible and learn about people who came face-to-face with God, beginning with Adam and Eve, Job, Moses, and down to the Apostle John in Revelations. See how the people reacted in fear and awe, falling to the ground at the sight of the majesty of God. Learn what “fear of the Lord” means. As we learn more about the holiness of God, come to understand that our worship should not be a casual experience but an intense, urgent activity of entering into the presence of God.

Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 7 mins 33 secs

What does it mean to genuinely worship God in our church services? Listen to this message to see that the New Testament does not lay out rules or specify what we must do like the Old Testament did for the Jews. Hear several definitions of worship and see that they have common ground in expressing reverence and adoration for God. Find out that these services can include music, scripture reading, prayer, and Bible study and should leave us more aware of God’s incomprehensible greatness after we have attended. Learn that we should prepare ourselves for worship and have a mental attitude that expresses respect for God.

During this class Dr. Dean referenced a book by Allen Ross, Recalling the Hope of Glory.

Are you a failure as a parent? Listen to this lesson to see that nothing you do in life is more important than taking time to teach your children the Word of God and living it in front of them. See that it is the father who has the primary responsibility for this. Hear a number of principles to apply about true biblical worship and parenting skills. Review the incident where the unknown woman anointed Jesus’ head with an expensive oil and how the disciples were told by Jesus three reasons why her work was good. Learn that ultimately all of our decisions focus on our volition and we need to prioritize our time according to the Scriptures.

Demons! Fortune tellers! Witches! Are they real or just something in scary movies, TV shows, and books? Listen to this lesson in Acts to learn how the Bible describes a very real spirit world and God's warning against the occult.

Passage: Proverbs 3:13-18
Series: Proverbs (2013)
Duration: 59 mins 41 secs
"Bless you." "Have a blessed day." Are these just airy greetings with little meaning? When we think of blessing and its synonym, happiness, we think of money in the bank, a big salary, vitality, and brilliant relationships. Proverbs tells us that God is offering us wisdom, which is worth more than all of these things and leads to true happiness. Nothing we wish for can hold a candle to wisdom. When we attain wisdom, we are promised enduring joy, long life, and recognition. The book of Proverbs explains the conditions God has attached to gaining His wisdom. Listen to this message to learn nine ways to help develop wisdom in your life and the ability to enjoy the exciting blessings that come with it.

Passage: Colossians 4:2-18
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 58 mins 45 secs
Prayer has high priority in scripture. It is good to interrupt and reevaluate a routine filled with responses to small crises. Prayer deserves focused attention, reflection, and concentration, which require time. God communicates with us through His Word. Our response is to communicate with Him through continual prayer and obedience in application of scripture. Since God’s revelation in scripture is sufficient, there is no need for Him to grant us new revelation in His answer. What are the categories of prayer? What specific prayer is Paul asking for as he continues to spread the gospel? How does the request to walk in wisdom apply when we try to communicate the gospel message? Find out to whom Paul gives his final greetings in Colossi and the roles they have had in Paul’s life.

Passage: Colossians 3:16-17 & Ephesians 5:18-20
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 57 mins 8 secs
God tells us to sing. Why? To express the word of God that dwells in us richly, teaching and admonishing in wisdom. Our inspiration is God’s grace; our motivation is truth; our audience is God; and our conduit is excellence. Worship, expressed in this way, will transform our values in the midst of a culture that has no absolute values. Excellence is in the standard. Adhere to the standard, and real beauty will be expressed. Our question is not, “Is this good enough?” Our question should be, “Is this the absolute best means to glorify God, reflect who He is and echo the Truth He has given?”

Passage: Colossians 3:16 & Ephesians 5:18-20
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 52 mins 54 secs
Anything other than God’s idea of worship by means of Spirit and Truth is a breakdown of standards. Within God’s creation, if all areas aren’t addressed by His righteousness and holiness, then no area is addressed. That must mean that God’s character is the issue when we worship through congregational music. What source do we use to evaluate music for worship so that it reflects intrinsic, objective, Godly beauty? Is our appreciation of beauty a measure of its worth? Learn some fallacies and truths in the worship wars involving church music in our culture.
