Show Notes

The Magi were wonderful men who traveled from the Parthian Empire to see the young Messiah. Despite clear information about them in the Bible, traditions about the Magi, who were astronomers, have clouded who they were and when they came to Bethlehem. Knowing the truth about these men helps us to understand why God would spend a whole chapter telling us about them.

Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

Jesus taught us that the second most important commandment in the whole Bible is to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. Despite this, there is often a surprising lack of love in the Christian community. This teaching focuses on why we should love our neighbor, how we already love ourselves, and practical ways to demonstrate loving behavior towards others.  Verses: Rom. 7:14-18; 12:1-2; 14:1-3, 10-15; Gal. 5:16-17, 19-23; Ps. 73:1-4, 12-17, 24; Matt. 5:16, 22, 29-30, 43-44, 46; 22:39; 2 Pet. 1: 5-7, 10-12; 1 John 2:28; 1 Cor. 3:16-17; 15:33; 2 John 1:8; Eph. 4:29; 5:25-29; Phil. 2:3; Isa. 5:20; 2 Cor. 3:18    Teacher:  John Schoenheit  ...

Prayer Matters

The doctrines that “God is in control” and “everything that happens is God’s will” have undermined the prayer habits of the Church. The earth is a war zone, and when we pray we participate in the spiritual battle. Our prayers speak into existence the legal permission for God to act in our lives. Prayer takes time and energy, but it makes a difference and is vital if we are going to live God-pleasing lives.  Verses: 1 Thess. 5:17; Mark 1:35; 3:24; Gen. 1:28; Luke 4:5-6; 18:1; 1 John 5:19; Ps. 18:1, 4-10, 13-14, 17; 24:10; Exod. 15:3; Eph. 6:12, 18; Dan. 10:1-14; 1 Cor. 14:15,18; James 4:2-3; 5:16; Rom. 12:12; Phil. 4:6; Col. 4:2; Matt. 6:8; 7:7; Heb. 4:16  Teacher: John Schoenheit ...
