Believing, Trust, & Faith
DD12-What is Faith?
A word we have heard others speak of , but what is it and how do we get it?
If unbelief breaks our association with God, then believing His truths will unite us again. A look at what is is to be "true Believers."
DD34-Trusting in God
To trust in God is not the way for just religious zealots. It is to be the life pattern for each one of us as we go about our daily lives.
DD49 Abraham- Part 3 -- Learning to Believe
We learn from Abraham what it means to "believe God".
DD94- Jeremiah--Part 1: A Life of Faith in God
Our human potential can only be fulfilled when God's will is fulfilled rather than our own. Life is therefore lived at its best when its lived with faith in God. Jeremiah, our subject, lived such a life. He was more interested in what God wanted for his life than in what he wanted. Are you?
DD128- The High Cost of Worry (Matthew 6: 25.34)
The world says that worry is a normal part of our life but worry in God's eyes IS NOT a normal part of life. IT IS NOT a harmless activity that is natural to the human race. If you are prone to worry then you'll want to carefully consider Christ's teaching on this important subject.
DD130-Truth and Those Willing To Listen ( Matthew 7:6, 24-27 )
We will look at "truth" in this study and man's willingness (or unwillingness) to hear and act upon it. Can it be that there are some people who will never accept God's truth?
DD131-All Life Is a Choice - (Matthew 7:12-14 )
We cannot accuse God or his son Jesus of being too complicated in what they teach us. Over and over throughout the Bible we can find one verse summaries of how we are to live. In these next verses in Matthew Jesus makes it quite clear that all of life is a choice.
DD132-Belief is Exposed by Actions - Matthew 7:15-23
Watch out! Beware! Peppered throughout the Lord's teaching to us are these warnings. In the world and sadly within the church there are "wolves dressed in sheep's clothing." The bad is mixed with the good and we must be able to tell the difference. Jesus gives us some guidelines in showing how belief is exposed by actions.
DD136- The Way to Truth - Matthew 11: 12-27
If you have ever met a "know it all" you quickly learn that they don't know it all. You'll discover the two deadly sins that keep "know it alls" from the truth and the one virtue needed by all of us to find the truth.
DD139- No Neutrality - Matthew 12: 30 / Matthew 12: 38-42
The world divided into two parts with the coming of Jesus Christ, the son of God. In the person of Jesus we are confronted with God and every man must decide for himself what to do with Christ. We are either for Him or against Him but there is no neutrality!
DD144- Jesus is There When We Need Him - Matthew 14: 22-33
This study is for any of us in extreme circumstances that feel we are sinking fast. We have a sweet reminder in these verses that God is committed to sustaining us throughout our life.
DD146-Faith Tested and Passionate Prayer - Matthew 15:21-28
It could be argued that if prayer isn't passionate it's not really prayer. When you go to God are you passionate enough to "not take no for an answer"? We have in our study today the story of a Canaanite woman that was having her faith tested by Jesus himself. Her passionate prayer and persistence earned the highest accolade the Lord could have given.
DD155 - The Essential Faith Needed For Life's Problems - Matthew 17:14-20
The disciples had just experienced a big spiritual failure. In this study we learn the reason for spiritual failure and how we can avoid falling into the same trap.
DD174 - The Prayer of Faith- A Lesson in Supernatural Living - Matthew 21:20-22
Jesus gives us an incredible word in these verses. He tell us that whatever we ask in prayer we will receive if we have faith. Does he really mean this and if so does he mean it for our lives today?
DD176 - Will You Be Found Trustworthy? - Matthew 21: 33-46
In this parable, Jesus addresses the issue as to whether we will be found trustworthy in believing and obeying him as God's son
DD189 - Our Position "In Christ" - Part 1 - Getting There and Living From There
The words "in Christ" or "in Him" are peppered throughout the New Testament so that we often skip over them and miss the deep meaning our Father wants us to know. Understanding our position with God --"in Christ"--will enable us to truly partner with God throughout our life on earth and then into eternity.
DD190- Our Position "In Christ" - Part 2 - Getting Back What We Lost
Before anything was even created, God proposed to create us IN HIS SON so that we could all be part of his great family. He means for all of us to have fullness of life, although He knows that some will never take it. When our first parents Adam and Eve fell from grace due to sin, all of us "in them" fell as well and begin life on earth independent from God. Let's look at the ingenius plan of God to restore us to what we were originally meant to be.
DD191- Our Position "In Christ" - Part 3- What We Have By Being "In Christ"
The Father sent Jesus to earth to restore the four things that we lost through sin. When we know and accept His work on our behalf it's like a reset button has been pressed in our life. In this study we look at what we have by being "In Christ".
