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 Non-Negotiables of Unity

Christians must be united and cannot compromise what is intended and thoroughly taught by the one Body, Spirit, Hope, Lord, Faith, Baptism, and God.

Ephesians 4:4-6 (ESV):  There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

The Urgency of Unity – Part Two

The Father is pleased with unity, and it is urgent that we try to achieve it. The second part of this lesson deals with the conduct of unity and the craving for unity.

Ephesians 4:1-3 (ESV):  I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

The Urgency of Unity – Part One

The Father is pleased with unity, and it is urgent that we try to achieve it. Part one of this lesson addresses the definition of unity, the call to unity, and the conduct of unity.

Ephesians 4:1-3 (ESV):  I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Finding Fortitude in the Face of Fear

Christians can persevere through any fearful situation by knowing and reminding ourselves that God’s presence secures, His peace satisfies, His power strengthens, His provision supplies, and God’s promise sustains.

Isaiah 41:8-10 (ESV):  
But you, Israel, my servant,
    Jacob, whom I have chosen,
    the offspring of Abraham, my friend;
you whom I took from the ends of the earth,
    and called from its farthest corners,
saying to you, “You are my servant,
    I have chosen you and not cast you off”;
fear not, for I am with you;
    be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
