Small Group Tune Up

Small Group Tune Up

Every now and then, we need a tune up. We need to take our bodies to the doctor for a physical. We need to talk to a friend about our marriage. Our employers have us do year-end evaluations. Our cars need a tune up. And so do our small groups. This six week study will...

Discussion-based Lessons

Discussion-based Lessons

Discussion-based lessons have groups talking and changing. We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. "Instead SPEAKING the truth (not just hearing the truth) we will grow." Ephesians 4.15 https://www.youtube.com/embed/lduldVUA8-4

When good men fall

When good men fall

A MAN I GREATLY RESPECT as an expositor of the Scriptures and a minister of the gospel once stood before the student body at Dallas Theological Seminary to preach on purity. He began his message by saying, “I carry in my vest pocket a small book that helps me guard my...

Abraham’s call

Abraham’s call

We know this man by the name Abraham, but he was born Abram. God changed his name at a critical point in the narrative, but for the first 99 of his 175 years, he answered to Abram. He lived around the end of the Early Bronze Age (circa 2000 BC) in a thriving,...

Abraham

Abraham

Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

When I first moved to Chicago, to Willow Creek Church, I called a friend of mine—the wisest spiritual man that I know—and I asked him, “What do I need to do to be healthy spiritually? What do I need to do to guard my heart?” There was a long pause. Then he said, “You...

Sanctification

Sanctification

THE subject of sanctification is one which many, I fear, dislike exceedingly. Some even turn from it with scorn and disdain. The very last thing they would like is to be a “saint,” or a “sanctified” man. Yet the subject does not deserve to be treated in this way. It...

The gospel and the kingdom of God

The gospel and the kingdom of God

Let me now call attention to how the gospel looked in the early church. One of the best places to do this is with Philip in Acts 8:12: “But when they believed Philip preaching the good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were being...

A vision for life in the Kingdom

A vision for life in the Kingdom

This vision of the kingdom is where Jesus started and where we must also start. He came announcing, manifesting, and teaching the availability and nature of the kingdom of the heavens. “For I was sent for this purpose,” he said (Luke 4:43). The kingdom of God is the...

What is the kingdom of God?

What is the kingdom of God?

The kingdom of God was the major theme of Jesus’ ministry and His favorite description of what God is doing in the world. Jesus often began His parables by saying, “The kingdom of God is like …” In fact, the word kingdom is used more than 150 times in the New...

Heaven on Earth

Heaven on Earth

The concept of the kingdom of God is elusive. From the beginning of Christianity, the greatest minds have been baffled by it. Theologians have equated it variously with heaven, the church, Israel, Christendom, democracy, socialism, communism, an ethical ideal, an...

The Purpose of Prayer

The Purpose of Prayer

Now what is the purpose of prayer? We’re coming full circle. Why does God want you to have victory over Satan? Because His is the glory. Why do you pray? To give God the glory. Now notice. “For thine is . . . the glory . . .” Pay close attention. When your reason for...

Deliver us from evil

Deliver us from evil

In the Sunday school class, they were going to pray for some missionaries, and the teacher said, “Now the missionaries are very busy. So when you write them and tell them that you are praying for them, don’t expect them to write back.” One little girl wrote and said,...

The joy of forgiveness

The joy of forgiveness

Think with me about the freedom of forgiveness. When you are forgiven, you are set free. When you forgive another person, you set them free. And when you forgive another person, not only do you set them free, but you set yourself free. So we’re going to talk about how...

Your need; not your greed

Your need; not your greed

What I want to think about with you in this chapter is praying for daily bread. We could expand this to say, “praying for daily needs.” When the Bible says, “Give us this day our daily bread,” what Jesus is talking about is not only bread. This is a model prayer. If...

What shall we pray for FIRST?

I heard some time ago about a man who saw a talking parakeet for sale. Talking parakeets are generally expensive. This one was only fifteen dollars. So he asked the store owner, “Does this parakeet truly talk?” “Certainly.” “Only fifteen dollars?” “Yes.” “Well, I’ll...
