Precepts from Pentecost

What do we know about and what can we learn from Pentecost? In this lesson, Brother Holloway discusses 1) The Day, 2) The Disciples, and 3) The Dwelling of Deity.

Acts 2:1-4 (ESV):  When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Who Is Jesus?

In this lesson, Brother Jeremy Betts discusses the questions: 1) Who is Jesus? 2) Do we allow Christ to be who He is? 3) Do we recognize what Christ did? 4) Where do we need to be? and 5) What are we willing to do?

Matthew 16:13-16 (ESV):  Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Respecting and Revering Our Father God, For He Is Good

Our God is worth of respect, fear, reverence and awe. In this lesson, Brother Shannon Pfleiderer explains why we should humble ourselves before our God.

Genesis 1:1 (ESV):  In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
Revelation 22:18-19 (ESV):  I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.

The Danger of Hearing and not Doing

We are living in dangerous times. Have we been hearing God? If so, have we been doing what He says? Hearing and not doing is sin, and the effects of sin are serious. This lesson discusses the importance of hearing, the insanity of not doing, and the image we bear.

James 1:22-25 (ESV):  But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

When Our Lord Descends

Great things happen when our Lord descends, for it reveals His concern for His greatest creation, which is us.

Matthew 8:1-4 (ESV):  When he came down from the mountain, great crowds followed him. And behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” And Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. And Jesus said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a proof to them.”

Perpetually Positive in the Pulp of Pollution

We must train our consciences to stay positive in the midst of so much evil and darkness in the world. This lesson presents six behaviors that will help the Christian remain positive in his or her life.

Philippians 2:1-5 (ESV):  So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus

The Yearning for Unity

As Christians, we must yearn for unity. In this lesson, we are given seven behaviors that demonstrate that yearning for unity.

Ephesians 4:25-32 (ESV):  Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil. Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need. Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Before We Get Started

There are some things we must do and some things we must know before we can be profitable to God. This lesson looks at what we must remember before we get started doing the work authorized by God, which is exalting the Savior, evangelizing the lost, and edifying the saved.

Matthew 4:1-11 (ESV):  Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written,
“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
    but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
Then the devil took him to the holy city and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written,
“‘He will command his angels concerning you,’
and
“‘On their hands they will bear you up,
    lest you strike your foot against a stone.’”
Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’” Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written,
“‘You shall worship the Lord your God
    and him only shall you serve.’”
Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him.
