Evangelist Jeff Kent and the Shadyside Church of Christ present a weekly lesson to help and encourage listeners in their daily walk with Christ and spread the Gospel. We are non-denominational and all lessons are taken directly from the scriptures.
The Healing Power of the Tongue
The scriptures have a lot to say about what we say! The tongue can do a lot of damage to people, or it can do a lot of good. The Holy Spirit affirms there is great healing power in the tongue - how our words can encourage, uplift and comfort others at different times in life. We all need to learn to do a lot better with what we say and when we say it.
There's a Great Day is Coming!
It will be a great and marvelous day when Jesus comes back at the end of earth time. Many things will happen then which will make it a great day. What will take place on that day? Jesus said that no man, not even the angels, but only the Father knows when He will return. So Jesus' word to all of us is to "be ready!"
The Flesh and the Spirit
In Gethsemane, Jesus warned the disciples that the spirit was willing, but the flesh was weak. To what was He referring? And how was this spirit v flesh struggle being played out on a life and death scale at that very time? How does all this affect us today?
Hannah, Woman of Faith
Hannah is a powerful example for us on how to live by faith. She had several problems in her life - she was childless and had difficulties within her family. Instead of taking matters into her own hands, she entrusted God with her troubles, and He blessed her. She kept her word to the Lord, and He continued to bless her in life.
Paul warned the church at Corinth of "another Jesus" being preached to them. Is there "another Jesus?" What would such a person stand for? Teach? Would He be our Savior? Would He tell us the truth? Where would He lead us?
Are We Going to Destroy the Earth?
In recent years, we have been hearing a lot about how man-made climate change/global warming is going to bring catastrophe to the earth. As with everything, the more you hear something repeated, the more you tend to believe it. Thus the need to filter everything through the lens of scripture. Does the Bible have anything to say about God's superintending what's happening to the earth? Does He have any plans for our planet?
Finally, a church that gives us the truth. Plenty of scripture references and encouragement to read along in YOUR BIBLES!!! I'll keep coming back to this one.
