Passage: Ephesians 4:17-21
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 45 mins 23 secs
After salvation, then what? Listen to this lesson to hear a blueprint for two paths you can take. One is to continue as you did as an unbeliever, living by the dictates of the sin nature. It leads to spiritual death in this life and at the Judgment Seat of Christ you receive no rewards. The best choice is to choose to live by means of the Holy Spirit. This involves reading the Word of God, studying, internalizing, memorizing, and applying it to decisions you make. It includes confession of sin on a regular basis and results in spiritual maturity and rewards. Each day you have this decision to make so choose wisely.

Duration: 1 hr 58 mins 9 secs
Are you a part of Team Adam or Team Church? Listen to this lesson to learn that when anyone trusts Christ as their Savior they switch from being in Adam to being in the Church, which is the body of Christ. Hear what we were like when we were born and see that the corruption was getting worse. Then when we trusted in Christ, we were born again and are now part of the Church. Everything is new. In order to grow to spiritual maturity we need to have our thinking renewed and that can only happen as we walk by means of the Holy Spirit and learn what the Scriptures reveal about our new life.

Series: Philippians (2022)
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 3 secs

What does it mean for our love to abound? Listen to this lesson to learn that when we first trust in Christ as our Savior we have very little understanding of what biblical love is and it is only through gaining knowledge of the Word of God and discernment that we come to understand it. Begin a study of seven passages of Scripture that discuss love beginning with what it means to be a disciple. Be challenged to apply three important lessons from the parable of the Good Samaritan.

During this message Dr. Dean referenced a document by Walt Kaiser, The Law As God’s Gracious Guidance for the Promotion of Holiness.
