Passage: Matthew 7:1
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 30 secs
Do you usually think the best about other people? Or are you quick to point out how stupid someone is? Listen to this lesson to learn that in the Sermon on the Mount Jesus emphasizes that our relationship with God is what matters most. Then being kind, generous, and gracious to others will follow. Understand how our life is connected to unseen spiritual warfare and that what we do matters. As an added bonus, enjoy a review of the faith of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and see how pastors during the early days of this country helped us gain our freedom.

Passage: Matthew 7:1-6
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 44 mins 31 secs
"I'm okay but you're not so great." Is that the way you feel sometimes? Listen to this lesson to learn that we are to confess our flaws and failures in humility and dependence on God before we point out others' weaknesses. Learn about self righteousness and the arrogance cycle. Understand that while we are to evaluate others we are not to be hypocrites and try to set everyone else straight. Accept that when we decide others need to be punished, we will receive discipline in the same manner.

Passage: Matthew 7:7-12
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 49 mins 54 secs
"Dad, may I have a fish?" When your child asks that, do you hand him a snake? Hardly! Listen to this lesson to learn why Jesus says this when teaching His disciples about prayer. See how true, genuine prayer is an expression of humility and how lack of prayer in our life points out our arrogance. Hear examples of prayer in the Old Testament and why God sometimes answers "No" to prayers. Accept the challenge of persistent prayer in your own spiritual life, both alone and in prayer meetings.

Passage: Matthew 7:13-20
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 49 mins 42 secs
Shall I do this or that? Should I go here or there? So many choices. Listen to this lesson to learn about choosing between two gates, one that almost everyone likes and the other that few choose. Understand that the gate we choose determines first our eternal destiny and then many daily choices determine our quality of life after salvation. Find out who Jesus is referring to when He talks about false prophets being like wolves in sheep's clothing and that the fruits He is talking about are the words of the false prophets which lead people astray.

Passage: Matthew 7:21-23
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 56 mins 24 secs
Hey, don't miss out on eternal rewards. Sure, it's great to know you've accepted Christ as your Savior and are on your way to heaven but remember, salvation is free but rewards are earned. Listen to this lesson to learn that after salvation our life should be built on obedience to God's Word and practicing the spiritual skills in order to experience the fullness of blessing in the Millennial Kingdom. See the distinction between the judging of Church Age believers and Old Testament believers. Accept we all have daily choices to make whether we're going to live for ourselves or going to live for the Lord.

Passage: Matthew 7:24-29
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 35 mins 31 secs
Now that you've been hearing the Sermon on the Mount taught for many weeks, what's your attitude toward it? Are you as astonished as the people were in Jesus' day? Listen to this lesson to learn that Jesus is warning about the foundation upon which our faith is built. Is it a strong foundation based on God's Word or is it no more than shifting sands based on our own foolishness? See how every day we are making decisions, many with unintended consequences, and that our challenge is to make right choices based on what Jesus taught.

Gain an understanding of leprosy and the significance of Jesus healing the leper. Marvel, along with the humanity of Jesus, at the faith of the centurion.

Listen to this lesson to learn biblical answers to many questions about healing including healing promised by fake healers. Understand the reasons for the accounts of Jesus and the apostles healing people. Recognize that we need to guard against becoming distracted by adversities in our life and accept that sickness is an opportunity for us to trust God and be a witness to those around us.

You're ill and many are praying for you to be healed. Does it depend on how much faith you have? Listen to this lesson to learn what God has revealed in the Bible about healing in today's world. See how healing is accomplished in different ways in different times in the Bible. Understand why Jesus healed some, but not all, people when He was on earth. Learn that the twelve apostles established their credentials by their ability to heal. Beware of being deceived in regard to the tests that come into your life and accept that God's plan for believers is perfect and that it may or may not include being healed. Additional information on healing is available in Dr. Dean's Doctrine of Healing
