    Laying Up Treasure in Heaven

    Laying Up Treasure in Heaven

    Read for This Week’s Study: Gen. 6:5–14, Heb. 11:8–13, 2 Cor. 4:18, Gen. 13:10–12, Gen. 32:22–31, Heb. 11:24–29.

    The foundational passage for this week is Mark 8:36, 37, which reads, “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”

    We could put alongside this the words of Jesus found in Matthew 6:19, 20, where he told his followers to lay up treasure in heaven where no moth or rust or thieves can destroy or steal it. And we might add the ...

    Dealing With Debt

    Dealing With Debt

    Read for This Week’s Study: Deut. 28:1, 2, 12; Matt. 6:24; 1 John 2:15; Prov. 22:7; Prov. 6:1–5; Deut. 15:1–5.

    This week we are going to talk about debt: what it is, what it does to and for us, what the Bible says about debt. We will also talk about how to get out of debt.

    The foundational text is Proverbs 22:7 – “The rich rules over the poor, the borrower is servant to the lender.”

    The issue of debt is a very big one today. Debt is everywhere in our world, particularly in the Western world where everything seems to run ...

    Offerings for Jesus

    Offerings for Jesus

    Read for This Week’s Study: 2 Cor. 9:6, 7; Deut. 16:17; Ps. 116:12–18; 1 Chron. 16:29; Mark 12:41–44; Mark 14:3–9.

    The lesson this week considers the many and various offerings mentioned in the Bible that were given in addition to tithe. In other words, tithing was considered a very basic thing in the Bible with generosity being calculated by what was given in addition to the tithe.

    The matter of generosity is a very interesting one. Those who are generous particularly in their giving of money to good causes, often tell of the great joy that comes to them as a ...

    The Tithing Contract

    The Tithing Contract

    Read for This Week’s Study: Gen. 14:18–20; Mal. 3:10; Deut. 12:5–14; Lev. 27:30; 1 Kings 17:9–16; 1 Cor. 4:1, 2.

    The lesson this week is precisely focused on the concept of tithing. It is commonly understood that a “tithe” is 10% or a tenth part of something. The primary text is the famous one from Malachi 3, “‘Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such ...

    God’s Covenants With Us

    God’s Covenants With Us

    Read for This Week’s Study: Matt. 10:22, John 6:29, Deut. 28:1–14, Prov. 3:1–10, Mal. 3:7–11, Matt. 6:25–33.

    The lesson this week is built around the fact that, in the long ago, God made a covenant with Abraham through which all the families of the earth can be blessed. That covenant has continued to this day and it may still bring its benefits to those who believe. The foundational text is from Deuteronomy 28:
    “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, ...

    Part of God’s Family

    Part of God’s Family

    Read for This Week’s Study: Gal. 3:26, 29; Ps. 50:10–12; 1 Chron. 29:13, 14; Phil. 4:19; 1 John 5:3; Matt. 6:19–21.

    The official lesson this week begins with some reflection on the idea that those who believe in Jesus Christ, who have come to believe his teachings and claims, and who have developed an on-going deferential relationship with him, constitute the family of God on this earth. The foundational text is the well-known one, I John 3:1
    “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!” (1 John 3:1, NKJV).
    This idea ...
