I am getting ready to lead the next lesson in our series on the topical Bible study of covenant. I love this course because of its life-changing ability. Many people have had their eyes opened to our covenant God via this awesome inductive Bible study. Here is a quick recap of the previous 8 lessons:
I am getting ready to teach my staff another lesson on genuine worship. This is our 4th one in the series of 6. I am excited to see what we are learning, practical teachings on how God defines genuine worship. Here are some of the previous articles on this subject:
Tonight we are celebrating Pigtails and Pajamas at Hoffmantown church. This is an annual event for moms and daughters, girls and their female role models, and ladies who are interested in investing in the next generation of girls. My sweet wife, Elena, was supposed to teach the girls and ladies about being women and girls after God’s own heart. Unfortunately, she is very sick, therefore, I will be filling in for her. For the sake of my hair and nails, I will not be participating in the event. I am just dropping in to teach this lesson about Deborah and Jael.
God is looking for girls and ladies after His own heart who will stand up in the midst of this wicked and perverse generation to bring about positive societal change. Deborah’s generation was similar to our own. For 24 years, the people of Israel have been walking in disobedience to the Lord and paying the price for it. There is much suffering. There is no peace. People are fighting with each other and there are enemies attacking and oppressing Israel. Society is falling apart. No one seems to know what to do about it. Continue reading →
I have been away for a while on a mission trip so I have not been teaching my Monday night study on the topic of Covenant. My awesome wife stepped in for me and did a great job. I am back now and this coming Monday, I am going to teach lesson 8 from our study on Covenant. I would love to share some insights with you here in this article. By way of review, here are some of our previous lessons:
I am excited to be back home from the foreign mission field in SE Asia. I am preparing to teach the kids this Sunday during theROC (children’s church). The subject is serving and our passage is John 13. There are three lessons that we can and need to learn from this passage. This is the well known passage where Jesus washes the feet of His disciples. Jesus taught them a lesson in service that they would never forget. It is a lesson that all of us who are followers of Christ need to learn and apply. In the previous lesson, we learned about forgiveness from Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well. Jesus searched for her and initiated the conversation with her. He shows her the need for the living water that only He can give. In order for her to receive this living water, her sins are confronted. She admits to her sins and receives the forgiveness that Christ offers, opening the door to a relationship with Him. She immediately wants to share this living water with all the people she knows. Many other people come to believe in Christ because she leads them to Him. Continue reading →
Dear friends, thank you so much for your prayers over the past 2 weeks. I had the honor of traveling with a team from our church to do mission work among an unreached people group on the other side of the world. I had the privilege of working with underprivileged children at an orphanage. Along with a teen from our church, I was able to lead a day camp for 35 kids and teens. The youngest was 7 and the oldest was 15. We studied the inductive Bible study course, “God, what is Your Name”. At the camp we discovered the meaning and significance of 13 Biblical Names for God.
