Blessed Be The Name Of The LORD

When things go bad in our lives, often the first relationship we drop is our relationship with God. But praise has a way of paralyzing the enemy. In this lesson, Brother Holloway defines the word, “blessed” and discusses how Job, in the midst of his suffering, blessed the name of the Lord through his actions and his attitude.

Job 1:20-22 (ESV):  Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped. And he said, “Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”

Sharing Spiritual & Material Blessings

We have been blessed both spiritually and materially. It is time for us to be a blessing both spiritually and materially. In this lesson, Brother Holloway shares definitions, explanations, and applications from Romans 15:27.

Romans 15:27 (ESV):  For they were pleased to do it, and indeed they owe it to them. For if the Gentiles have come to share in their spiritual blessings, they ought also to be of service to them in material blessings.

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.

The Creed of Comfort

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 teaches us that God is the God of all comfort. We need to comfort others with the comfort that God gives us. This lesson discusses the comfortable occupation, the comfortable titles, the comfortable facts, and the comfortable design.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (ESV):  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
