Deeper Life/ Union with God
DD43- How Can We Please God?
Our heavenly Father is delighted when we stop just wanting to "get" from Him and really desire just to "be" with Him.
DD46- Experiencing the Depths of Jesus Christ-Abandonment
If life is to be any different for us as Christians we must "press on to know the Lord." This study is taken from Madame Guyon's writings.
DD80- The Song of Solomon--Part 1 -Assurance of Acceptance and Love
The Song of Solomon is Solomon's finest and most important work of writing. It is an allegorical love story that will help you to see the beauties of love in your own walk with Jesus Christ.
DD81- The Song of Solomon--Part 2-- The Call to a Resurrection Life
The closer we come in our walk with Jesus the more we see of our own sin and darkness. Nevertheless, Christ is able to "save to the uttermost"" those that come to Him. We continue our study of this love story and how it relates to our own walk with Jesus.
DD82- The Song of Solomon--Part 3--The Communion of Love
Jesus Christ calls out to each one of us (no matter how black and sinful our life is) desiring to "raise us up with Him into the Heavenly places"". He has a new life ready for each of us who dare to walk with Him into the communion of love.
DD83 The Song of Solomon--Part 4--Into Service With Him
In our last study we find a more mature bride. She is one that is now ready to leave her selfish desires to be in step with her husband and in HIS life and work. Jesus is very patient with us as He waits for us to leave ourselves behind and enter into service with Himself.
DD89- The Story of Job --Part 1--Opposition
In the oldest book of the Bible, God gives us a living example of a very righteous man who suffered almost beyond our comprehension. Through his story we may find some of the answers for our own trials and hardships.
DD90- The Story of Job--Part 2--Job Aroused to Anger
Job in talking with his "friends" about "What have I done to deserve this?" becomes so angry that in desperation he accuses God. Are we accusing God in our anger for the hardships in our life?
DD91- The Story of Job -- Part 3--Job in the Crucible
Although suffering is not always caused by our sins it can nevertheless by used by God to show us our true nature and the need that each one of us has to be "born again" in God. Slowly and painfully Job comes to see God's greater purposes behind his situation.
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.
DD137- Rest for Weary Souls - Matthew 11:28-30 / Matthew 12: 1-14
There is nothing that makes men so tired as religion. Religion is an exhausting web of "do's and don'ts". Real Christianity is about a relationship with Jesus Christ and there is only one law that is needful. When you live by the one law all others are fulfilled.
DD143- Christ's True Spiritual Family - Matthew 12:46-50
Often our families are the ones who understand us the least. That was the case for Jesus as well. In this study Jesus makes clear who his true spiritual family is.
DD172 - A Time to Clean House - Matthew 21:12-17
Overturning the tables of the money-changers and animal booths in the temple was Christ's reaction to the greed and profiteering going on in the name of religion. It was time to clean house. In this study we learn how this applies to our own life -- the temple of our body.
DD195- Sit, Walk, Stand - Our Life with Christ in Three Words - Part 1
Christianity does not begin by walking but by sitting down in the work that Christ has finished for us.
DD196- Sit, Walk, Stand - Our Life with Christ in Three Words - Part 2
It's only after we learn to sit down and rest in the finished work that Jesus has done for us, that we can begin to walk with Christ in the life we have been given to live.
