    #60 What manner of people ought we to be?

    #60 What manner of people ought we to be?

    What’s the most important thing we need to think about as we wrap up our year-long journey through the Bible?

    We started with Paradise lost in Genesis and we will end with Paradise restored in Revelation, so should we focus on end-time prophecy? Figuring out when Jesus will return?

    There are many things we could focus on as we wrap up this year, but) what I decided to talk about as we look back on what we’ve read and look forward to God’s plans for us is to answer the question taken from a passage in 2nd Peter where in light of Jesus coming, he doesn’t focus on the newspaper sensational details of it, but asks:

    What manner of people ought we to be?

    #59 Paul’s Prison letters; Pity party or prayer?

    #59 Paul’s Prison letters; Pity party or prayer?

    How do we act when bad things happen to us?

    u We always have a choice
    u We can retaliate
    u We can throw a pity party
    u We can blame others
    u Or we can trust God no matter what and try to respond in a way He wants us to

    No one or no circumstance ever forces us to act in a way God doesn’t want us to

    In our podcast today we’ll look at how the Apostle Paul responded in a very difficult situation.

    #58 Romans Road, part 2 The rest of the journey home

    #58 Romans Road, part 2 The rest of the journey home

    If you invited someone to your home for dinner and they stopped halfway there, what would you think? That they didn’t care? Didn’t really want to be with you?

    In our podcast today we’ll see how that is a little like what it is like if we accept Jesus to be our Savior, but then we quit God’s plans for us only halfway to where He wants us to be.

    #57 The Romans Road, part one—The Road to Salvation

    #57 The Romans Road, part one—The Road to Salvation

    Christians often refer to themselves as "saved", but what does it mean to be "saved"? Saved from what?

    In today’s podcast we’ll talk about the meaning of salvation and how to get from wherever we are to this spiritual destination. Our roadmap for this journey is found in the book of Romans.

    #56 The Early Church—what to learn from, what to follow

    #56 The Early Church—what to learn from, what to follow

    As we read Acts and the early letters of Paul, we see the people of the early church selling everything, constantly in worship, doing miracles. Does that mean we should do these things also?
    The history of the early church is no doubt exciting, as they worked miracles, held everything in common and lived a life of continual worship.

     However, a key question for us living today is which of their actions should we follow as a normative command for the church today—meaning we should keep doing it because they did it and what should we understand simply as a history of the birth of the church, something to learn from in principle, but not necessarily a practice to precisely follow?

    Those are the questions we will answer in our podcast today. For notes from the podcast and more, go to https://www.bible805.com.

    #55 Changed lives and a world turned upside down--Acts, James, Galatians

    #55 Changed lives and a world turned upside down--Acts, James, Galatians

    What does it take to change a habit?

    We’ve all struggled to lose weight or exercise or get up earlier or all sorts of things we wish we’d do differently and it's hard to do!

    It’s never easy to change even the most simple of habits, but in our podcast today we’ll see that the followers of Jesus not only changed their personal behavior from that of fearful cowards to fearless leaders but that thousands of Jewish believers totally changed the faith practices that had been the core of their identity since the time of Abraham.

    In our podcast, we’ll look at the history of the incredible changes that took place after Jesus Resurrection that we read about in the book of Acts and then we’ll look at two of the earliest books that were written to the early church, James and Galatians.
