Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: Forgiven By God – Lesson 2 (9/12/18 Bible Class)

9/12/18 Wednesday Bible Study

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
What would it mean to have your past erased and have the burden of guilt from sin lifted off of your shoulders?  That is exactly what God offers us through Jesus Christ, and the very thing that our Brother Dan Winkler helps us to understand in his book Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: The Peace of Living Without a Past.  Over the Fall quarter, we’ll be studying this book together.  In this lesson we focus on two questions: What is forgiveness? and Why are we forgiven?
The book and the study material on which this study are based can be bought directly from Bro. Winker at danwinkler.org.
Note: The videos that are mentioned in the Bible Class are not included in this recording. In addition, there is a lot of class participation in these lessons, and the audio of the comments may not always be as clear.

The Church – A Review – 9/2/18 Sunday Bible Class

Teacher: Matt Burleson

Several weeks ago we began this series with a few lessons about the church, but have now returned to that series and will be looking at lessons surrounding the topic for the next several weeks.  This morning, we take a quick glance over the lessons we examined before, asking what the church is, dealing with questions of authority, and understanding expediency and how it is rightly used.

The Second Letter to the Ephesians – Revelation 2:1-7

8/26/18 Sunday Bible Class

Teacher: Jim Roquemore
Did you know there is a second letter to the church at Ephesus in the Bible?  It’s very short, and it’s actually contained within another book.  In the second and third chapters of Revelation, several churches are mentioned who are given specific instructions from the Lord.  Ephesus is one of those churches, and as we conclude our study of Ephesians, we take a look at those few verses in Revelation 2.

Ruth 4:17-22

8/22/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
The final lesson in our look at the short book of Ruth, tonight we focus on the implications that this story had on the future.  Not only was one of Israel’s greatest kings a descendent of Ruth and Boaz, so was the King of Kings, Jesus Christ.  Praise God for his providence throughout the centuries to bring about salvation for all.

Ephesians 6:10-19

8/19/18 Sunday Bible Class

Teacher: Jim Roquemore
The Christian life is compared to many things in the Bible.  It is sometimes a walk or a race.  Sometimes it is spoken of in terms of the household or family that we are part of.  In Ephesians 6, Paul speaks of it as a battle, a battle against the forces of evil, and a battle for which we must be prepared.

Ruth 4:1-16

8/15/18 Wednesday Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
The beautiful story of Ruth and Boaz hit a roadblock at the end of Ruth 3, but with the beginning of chapter 4, the situation is quickly resolved, Ruth and Boaz are married, and Ruth gives birth to a son.  Near the end of this chapter, we are reminded that though the book bears Ruth’s name, the story is really Naomi’s.

Ephesians 6:5-9

8/12/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Jim Roquemore
No matter what kind of relationship we have with someone, Christians should always behave as Christians.  In Ephesians 6, Paul deals with the relationship between slaves and masters, a passage we often apply to the employee/employer relationship today.  Whatever situation we find ourselves in, even if it is one we are not happy with, we have no excuse for not behaving as a Christian.

Ruth 3

8/8/18 Wednesday Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
God is always working in the lives of his people, but sometimes he expects his people to move things along as well.  In Ruth 3, Naomi takes the initiative to move things along for Ruth and Boaz, and Ruth’s midnight meeting with Boaz proves both innocent and fruitful.  Boaz vows to handle the situation regarding Ruth that very day.
