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: Ephesians 1:4-5
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 50 mins 20 secs
Are we free to choose to accept Christ or does God select who will believe? Listen to this lesson to learn that God is not willing for any to perish and has given all mankind freedom to choose to believe in Christ as their Savior. See that God has designed a purpose and a destiny for those who do believe. Hear three categories of the will of God and see that the permissive will of God gives us responsibility for the choices we make. Learn what it means when it says “Jacob have I loved, and Esau have I hated.”
Note that the title on the video should say Ephesians #21.

Wouldn’t it be great if God told us exactly what He wanted us to do and we didn’t have to struggle with decisions? Listen to this lesson to learn that God’s Word has all the principles we need to know God’s will. See that since the Canon of Scripture was completed God no longer gives us special revelation. Find out that believers have the Holy Spirit to guide us when we walk by means of the Spirit. Our part is to learn what the Word of God says and to apply it in wisdom to our circumstances.

Passage: 1 Samuel 9:1-25
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 8 mins 9 secs
Tall, dark, and handsome! In other words, a perfect king. Listen to this lesson to learn that while Saul seemed to have everything going for him, he was not the king that would prosper Israel. Find out that outward appearances can be deceiving and it’s what a person is like inside that counts. See the comparisons between Samuel and Saul. Learn about how spiritually dense Saul was. For your own life, realize that what you think will make you happy and fulfilled may not be God’s answer for the plan for your life.

Passage: Colossians 3:15
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 37 mins 38 secs
How do we find God's will? Does God always have a specific will for each detail of our life, or, for the issues that don't involve morality or biblical commands? Or is the test of decision making more often related to the process of how we make the decision, than the specific decision itself? In this lesson Pastor Dean continues to answer these and other questions related to knowing God's will and making wise decisions.

Passage: Colossians 3:15
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 45 mins
There are many erroneous ways Christians have interpreted this verse to try to understand how they can know the will of God. This has led to ideas which don’t conform to an understanding of what Colossians 3:15 really means. How can we know what God’s will is for our lives? Is the peace of God a feeling that permeates every moment we are operating inside the will of God? How does this verse relate to the harmony we can find within the body of Christ?

Passage: Colossians 3:15
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 53 mins 28 secs
Christians may misunderstand the meaning of inner peace, seeing it as a manifestation of understanding God’s will in their lives. What are the criteria for knowing God’s will for your life? How does peace relate to unity within the Body of Christ? Contrast inner peace with the mental state of Jesus in Gethsemane just prior to the crucifixion. Can a Christian experience deep anguish and still be within the will of God?
